Wine Country Inn is an 80-room, Victorian-style boutique hotel located in Palisade, the heart of Colorado’s rapidly expanding wine country. Nestled in the middle of 21 acres of working vineyards, the inn is within walking distance of two wineries and a short drive or bike ride from some two dozen more.
With an abundance of local agricultural products, our Executive Chef specializes in seasonal field-to-fork creations for our all-new, full-service Caroline’s Restaurant and catering service for events. Our wine cellar presents local, American and International selections.
A complimentary afternoon wine reception features our very own private label wines crushed from our grapes grown right outside our doors. A hearty wine country breakfast is standard. Casual lunch and elevated dinner service are offered daily in the new Caroline’s, while the Tapestry Lounge serves cocktails, wine, beer and a limited bar menu of small bites.
Although weddings are a large part of our event schedule, they are by no means our only area of expertise. Corporate planners looking for a more intimate, relaxed venue for board retreats, team building/training and rewards programs can benefit from our decade of experience and adaptability.
Whatever your goals, we can customize an event to your specifications for short-term day meetings or longer stays that include outside activities such as wine tastings, orchard tours, cycling, hiking, river rafting or winter sports at Powderhorn Ski Resort on the Grand Mesa. For the artistically inclined, we have a thriving community of local painters, sculptors, potters and fiber artists who show their works in several nearby galleries and studios. So much to do; so little time!
The same opportunities apply to our class or family reunions, anniversary, and graduation or birthday celebrations. You can enjoy a variety of activities without changing your venue. Wine Country Inn is a full-service hotel offering relaxed lodging, on-site dining, business services, guest laundry, gift shop, and free Wi-Fi and Ethernet service.
The inn is easily accessed via Interstate 70 or by air connection through Grand Junction Regional Airport.
Whatever your goal, give us a call. We can help you achieve it. As we say in Palisade, “Life tastes good here, all year long!”
