If You Love Wide Open Spaces, Mountain Views and the Colorado River, You Will Love Loma!
Perhaps it’s a place where the sky and farmland are vast, where the soil is fertile for growing your own food, the trees grow tall, and your neighbors offer genuine small-town friendliness. Where there’s little crime or traffic, and all you hear at night is the rush of wind through the trees. You have found the right place…..Loma, Colorado!
Loma Homes and Real Estate is Your Ideal Patch of Mother Earth
Located in Mesa County and 18.5 miles northwest of Grand Junction, an unincorporated community and census designated place with a population of approximately 1,324 people and right around 463 households. There is not a lot of commercial or residential development in Loma and Mack, which is just the way most people who live out there like it. Most of the land is zoned agricultural, and there is no existing infrastructure to accommodate higher density development, which stops future housing. Loma and Mack are agricultural communities and because there is no sewer systems things will likely remain that way.
There are a few quality subdivisions in Loma, some of the more popular are: The Canyons, Gold Lake Estates, Kuhl, Red Canyons, Golden Hills. Loma Country Farms and Tierra Bonita. Many of the homes that are on acreage are not in subdivisions and do not have any CC&R’s. You have more flexibility with what you can do without CC&R’s. Home choices include ranches, large and small acreage homes, from luxurious to very affordable and some older homes
The old Loma School dating back to the early 1900’s is still standing and the only students in the building are the pigeons. Loma has it’s own elementary school, but middle and high school children attend schools in Fruita. Sharing the road with tractors is the way here!
Shopping and services is very limited and nearby community amenities are just a short drive to Fruita or a little further to Grand Junction for groceries, restaurants and entertainment. I-70 is right off the Loma exit and you can go east or west.
Highline State Park is nearby and home to two lakes, the Highline Lake and Mack Mesa Lake. Highline State Park is 563 acres of year-round recreation, hiking, biking, and wildlife viewing. The Ruby-Horsethief section of the Colorado River, runs from Loma, Colorado, to Westwater, Utah. This is a 25-mile stretch of mostly flat-water with sections of Class I and II rapids. This section of the Colorado runs through beautiful red rock canyons and has many day hike opportunities. The beauty of Ruby-Horsethief Canyon is not visible from the highway, only by foot, boat or Amtrak.
Nearby Rattlesnake Canyon is a scenic area within the Black Ridge Canyons Wilderness and part of McInnis Canyons administered by the Bureau of Land Management. There is unlimited hiking and horseback riding opportunities all through this area.
