Wine Country Inn Palisade

The Wine Country Inn in Palisade opened in 2007.

Most of us like to talk just about wine when discussing a trip to Palisade. But you need a place to sleep. Here are a few of our favorites for your next trip to a vino-soaked weekend along the Western Slope:

Wine Country Inn: Opened in 2007, this 80 room hotel was a huge addition to Palisade. It features all the amenities you need; employs a great staff; offers top nosh in its restaurant, Tapestry Lounge; features live music (seasonally); and has the best darn pool in the region. What else do you need? How about more wine? The Inn has its own house white and red, too. 777 Grande River Drive, (970) 464-5777

DiVine B&B in Palisade

DiVine Thyme B&B: Run by Tom and Cathy Monroe, this adorable B&B is housed in a Victorian and caters to those looking for a more intimate setting for their stay in Palisade. The vanilla poppyseed muffins are worth the drive to Palisade alone. 404 West 1st St., 970~464~9144

Vistas and Vineyards B&B:  Run by Donna and Felix Iovanni, we often hear feedback about the espresso and the warm hospitality served up by these friendly folks.  In the summer, they also host a summer concert series (among many others around town).  3587 G Road 970~464~7478

Springhill Suites by Marriott: If you want to explore Grand Junction as well as wine country, this hotel is within walking distance downtown, meaning it’s nearby some of our favorite places to eat such as Bin 707, Dolce Vita and Il Bistro. Grand Junction is a 15-minute drive from Palisade. 236 Main St., Grand Junction, (970) 424-5777

Island Acres in Fruita: For those with a little more of an adventurous spirit, this campground along the Colorado River is an incredible option during the warmer months. It’s minutes from Palisade — and even closer to world class mountain biking. You can bike year round!
