Three Weeks in Heaven

Our family met at Granite View this summer and it was exactly as presented in the review by the owner. This is a perfect place to escape a stress filled life. In fact, it was hard to leave the house and get out and enjoy Prescott and the environs. There were 3 generations, and there was something for everyone. The seniors in the group spent lots of time on the upper balcony, reading and watching the hummingbirds feed. The youngsters really loved the 2nd floor with all the video and table games, and the adult children drifted from the weight room to throughout the house. The privacy was great, and the silence golden. Late one afternoon we had 3 deer feeding in the back yard. At night the star gazing was incredible...can't see that in the city!
It is true that I am very stingy with that 5th star.....always have been. There were some minor inconviences: With no remote for the garage door, someone had to scamper and jump the beam to go in and out of the garage. (It became an Olympic sport for the little kids known as "Jumping IT". It was somewhat uncomfortable for the people sleeping downstairs as there was no access to the AC. But there were ceiling fans that helped. Since we were there for an extended period we had bought quite a lot of groceries. There was not a storage area, so we turned the kitchen table into the pantry. The dog was constantly looking for a small patch of grass, but he too, adapted. As you can see these are all minor complaints. Oh, yes, no one to tuck us in bed at night.
NICE SURPRISES: The city of Prescott was a nice surprise. It was consistantly 3 to 5 degrees cooler at the house than in town. Lots of hummingbirds. Very nice hikes available. Beautiful scenery even from the bed! The management was very nice and quick to respond. Thanks to all of you.
