Grass Mesa Homeowners Association is an eighty-four unit “rural” homeowners association south of Rifle, Colorado. All of the units are acreages and generally are about 40 acres in size. Approximately one-half of the units are still available for development.
Although much of the Grass Mesa Homeowners Association is within a mile or so, as the crow flies, from the city of Rifle, visitors arriving on Grass Mesa will feel like they are a much greater distance “out of town” due to the elevation change, the abundance of wildlife, and the rural country setting. Grass Mesa visitors will marvel at the spectacular 360 degree vistas of the Colorado River Valley and its associated mountains.
The mesa where Grass Mesa Homeowners Association is situated – for the most part – consists of gently sloping terrain which means fewer building challenges and more usable property.
Rifle, Colorado is a dynamic and growing community on Colorado’s Western Slope. The Rifle area is proud of its small town atmosphere and local community feeling. Rifle’s quaint downtown district features antique shops, quality dining, and historic museums.
Outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers can enjoy fishing or a nice stroll along the mighty Colorado River. The area surrounding Rifle is rich with wildlife and excellent fishing. In addition to some of the best elk hunting in the state, Rifle is in the heart of the region’s fly fishing. During August, Rifle is host to the Garfield County Fair. Residents and visitors enjoy getting back to nature at Rifle Gap State Park and Rifle Falls State Park for fishing, camping, boating and swimming in cool Rocky Mountain water.
The Association is south and somewhat east of downtown Rifle and can be accessed by turning off of Interstate 70 at the main Rifle exit and going south to the second round about and turning east on Airport Road.
