Brian and Louisa after a snowmobile ride!

Brian milled all the wood for the house, a true piece of craftsmanship.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

This area is beautiful and the feeling that you have the whole planet to yourself is right out the door. You can watch the sun and moon rise and set. Are you into astronomy? This is the place for you!!!

The best part about this place are the views! Watching the sunrise, moonrise, and sunsets are fantastic. A common statement from our guest's is, ''your photos don't do our house/property justice.'

The wildlife here is equally as grand. On any given day you may see elk, antelope, eagles, blue herons, hawk, coyotes, and fox.

Because it adjoins forest service land you can cross country ski, snowmobile, hike right off the property.

Babysitter/nanny on site with a degree in child dev., CPR and First aid certified. Go out to dinner and enjoy yourself!

It was a great place to stay on our way to Grand Canyon. The views from the place are amazing. The house is very beautiful and well equipped. We couldn't have asked for more.

This home was everything and more as shown on VRBO. What a pleasant surprise to arrive and find it even more breathtaking than the pictures could ever show. This location was great for visiting Sedona, Grand Canyon, flagstaff. We needed a quiet, restful place away from crowds and traffic. And, WOW....this beautiful ranch home on the prairie does deliver! We would certainly recommend the place to family and friends. Pet friendly, kid friendly.

THE PERFECT PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at Louisa's house for a week while exploring through Arizona. It is exactly as described if not better! We relaxed in the evenings with the wood stove fired up after long days of sightseeing. The views are absolutely breathtaking and the stars we could see at night were in the millions! We used this as our base to tour Flagstaff, Winslow, Williams, Sedona, Page and more. It was wonderful to come home to quiet relaxing views and all the comforts of home.
Louisa was more than helpful from first contact to after we stayed. Thank you, Louisa for helping make our visit to your home so wonderful. We hated to leave.

WEEK IN PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
Two friends and I stayed in this beautiful home for a week in late July 2013. None of us had ever been to Arizona on vacation, so we had no idea what to expect. Needless to say, we had the time of our lives. This home is in a great location--close to Flagstaff, a beautiful scenic drive to Sedona, and very near The Grand Canyon. We loved the ease of getting to the many sites in the area, but loved coming home every evening to this quiet and secluded place. Our daily hikes in the hills behind the house were enjoyable, and sitting on the front porch watching the hummingbirds at the feeder was so relaxing. The elk (as many as six bulls) in the yard most every morning was a special treat. If you're looking for an out-of-the-way location with close proximity to a lot of activities, this is your place.

LOVED IT !!!

  • 5 of 5
Our time at the home rental in Parks, AZ, was exceptional - rest, relaxation, in a retreat equipped with anything we could possibly need or want! We had high expectations from the pictures and reviews on the website and were pleasantly surprised that this property delivered far more than we could wish for. To start with, the main house is completely custom built with over 40 windows, a spacious open floor plan, high ceilings, and even a vaulted ceiling in the master. In addition, the picture windows and French doors make this beautiful two bedroom home sunny and bright. It gets better....the views from each window are some of the best of what AZ has to offer! The covered porches are also great spots to view wildlife and several mountains around this magical home. We had planned to head into Sedona one day, but we found ourselves not wanting to leave therefore spent the day walking on nearby trails, taking photos, watching birds (hummingbirds especially active!) and reading from the great variety of books at the home. Overall the home is especially well equipped, clean and provides all that is needed for relaxation and rejuvenation. From booking to departure the communication with Louisa could not have been easier or more informative. Looking back, our two nights here will be a highlight of our 10 days in the area.

GREAT BASE FOR GRAND CANYON & OTHER ACTIVITES

Great base for Grand Canyon & other activites
  • 5 of 5
This property was a wonderful home away from home during our vacation. It was a short drive to many of the main attractions in the area including the Grand Canyon, Sedona, Williams & Flagstaff. So much to do and a great haven for quiet at the end of the day of activities. Our kids really enjoyed relaxing at night - playing games or watching movies. Louisa was a great hostess - very good communication and responses when I had a questions before, during and after our stay. Beautiful rustic home in a peaceful setting - away from the crowds but not too far from things to do. House had everything we needed including lots of suggestions of what to do in the area. We've rented vacation homes many times before and this was one of our favorite - highly recommended.
