Grand Junction itself is a relatively small city, but when combined with the larger metropolitan area (including Palisade, Fruita, etc.) there are plenty of Airbnb options to choose from.

Whether you’re looking for a budget Airbnb, in the downtown core, in the outskirts (or even Palisade) or that can fit a large group – I got you! Keep on scrolling for my recommendations.

And don’t forget to check out my monster guide covering all the best Airbnb tips for guests you should know!

Why It Rocks

I mean, does it get any better than staying on a functioning vineyard, sipping wine and feeding farm goats? I think not.

Previous guests rave about the location – walking distance to three wineries, a short bike ride to Palisade and a short drive to Grand Junction.

And the views of the surrounding mountains will make it hard to leave and go home!

 

Gorgeous location and venue. The farm was beautiful and the puppies were so sweet. The WiFi/tv wasn't very strong but you should really be spending most time outside anyway. She added a booster for us which was very hospitable of her. Location is wonderful & the barn is very spacious. Would love to visit again soon!

BEST DOWNTOWN AIRBNB GRAND JUCTION

Like many small cities, the downtown area of Grand Junction is a fantastic area to stay – where you can expect to be a little closer to the action of the city. In this neighborhood you can walk (or bike!) to a plethora of local attractions, watering holes, delicious restaurants and more. These Grand Junction Airbnbs are a little more urban, centrally located, walkable, bikeable (is that a word?) and incredibly stylish!

Why It Rocks

This well-designed studio is located only a few blocks from downtown Grand Junction. Everything is brand new and there are thoughtful touches sprinkled throughout – like the addition of two bikes for guest use.

Prior guests love the host’s attention to detail and warm welcome. This Airbnb in Grand Junction is where style, location and comfort all meet.

Allie and Kevin's place was great! It was exactly as described. The pictures were accurate. The place was sparkling! It was easy getting from the place to downtown for food and drinks. We enjoyed our stay and would consider staying here again.

This cottage was super clean, beautiful and comfortable, and a convenient and relaxing place to stay. We especially loved the quality furnishings and thoughtful small touches that made it easy to stay here, from the comfortable mattresses to the luggage stands and night lights. The hosts really put a lot of thought into making this a cozy, bright, lovely little home. It's a quiet residential location, but conveniently close to main street. We would absolutely stay here again when passing through Grand Junction!

Why It Rocks

This is a Grand Junction Airbnb where the hosts know it’s the little things that can make a big impact. Many essentials are provided, including coffee/tea items, small toiletries a la a hotel, and even full size deodorant!

Our stay at St Mary's Place was outstanding. The apartment was very clean and comfortable. We really appreciated the extra touches John and Ceanna provided. Communication was prompt, which is always a plus. I look forward to visiting Grand Junction again, and will certainly make every effort to stay at St Mary's Place.

This place is absolutely adorable and very tastefully decorated - lots of charming personal touches. I would definitely recommend this place to a friend. There's a full kitchen and even a little fenced in front patio area. We also got takeout from a nearby restaurant that had amazing farm-to-table food and space for outdoor dining. Bonus that Tara's place is walking distance to Main Street.

Hoping to make another trip to Grand Junction later this year. If we do, we will definitely stay here again!

Great house with plenty of room in a good central location for area activities. There's a park nearby that's good for kids. The outdoor grilling space was a nice plus. The beds were very comfortable and apart from some expected road noise the neighborhood was quiet after dark and we stayed well rested. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils, dishes, etc.. Access to the home was simple and the hosts are obviously experienced and responsive.

BEST PALISADE AIRBNBS

Palisade, CO is part of the greater Grand Junction metropolitan area – but it feels like it’s a completely different world. Palisade is famously known for their many orchards, and especially for the incredibly delicious Palisade peaches. And what’s the best thing to do with the fruit from all of those orchards? Turn it into wine of course! Which is why a trip to Grand Junction is not complete without a stop in Palisade. Plan to spend a night here so you can winery hop without having to worry about transportation back to Grand Junction.

Why It Rocks

You really can’t beat this Airbnb’s location. You’re mere steps from Main St and the Palisade town center. Making it super easy to walk or ride a bike (two are provided!) to local wineries, shops, restaurants and more.

And you’re only a short drive to the best Grand Junction has to offer! Making this spot perfect for those looking to explore both Grand Junction and Palisade. 

Great spot walking distance from everything in Palisade! You can see mesas from the back yard. The space feels bigger than it looks in the pictures! Definitely recommend.

Great home base for exploring Palisade, Fruita, and Colorado National Monument. My husband and I enjoyed a quick 2 night trip to hike in Colorado National Monument. Everything was very clean with all the amenities. We were there in the off season but I would imagine sitting out on the deck over looking the orchards in the summer would be spectacular.
