FOREST HIGHLANDS COTTAGE, GATED, MOUNTAIN VIEWS. 3 BDR CHARM!

Flagstaff House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

YOUR BEST VACATION YET! You will LOVE coming to Northern Arizona, spending time at a beautiful home at the base of the San Francisco Peaks. Our home is located in the finest private golf country club in Flagstaff, Arizona (Forest Highlands). Our very private home is on a cul-de-sac and our back yard abuts the National Forest. with completly unobstructed views of the San Francisco Peaks from every room. One of the best lots at Forest Highlands.

After you arrive, get unpacked and situated, sit outside and make your favorite beverage while enjoying one of the famous short summer afternoon thunderstorms in the months of July or August while preparing a tasty BBQ on our large covered redwood deck with the outdoor gas grill just steps away. Maybe you'll even see a beautiful Bull-Elk pack meandering out back among the Ponderosa Pines. The stars at night are spectacular. Be sure to bring your binoculars ! You can also look forward to taking nice hike out back among the 9 large ponds for wildlife operated by the State of Arizona.

Indoors, the inviting western atmosphere with three bedrooms, pine ceiling and large kitchen/family room with romantic beautiful stone fireplace will keep you cozy, in addition to the 24/7 wireless internet availability, as well as two big flat-screen televisions in the family room and master bedroom that bring you Direct TV and Net-Flix on-Demand. (Blue Ray) And don't forget to bring your swimming suits to enjoy the nice big Jacuzzi in the spa room just off the master bedroom that also looks out at the mountains. It also opens to the back patio if you need to check on your steaks on the grill!

The kitchen has all you need to make everything from a casserole to a turkey dinner. All the supplies and all the dishes. A fine old-fashioned pine dining room set table with six chairs makes it comfortable to sit down and eat there if you don't feel up to eating outdoors on the patio. Besides the refreshing mountain air, we have some of the best fawcett water this side of the Mississippi. All you need is a glass!

Just five miles away is downtown Flagstaff. Snowbowl for skiing is 30 minutes away. WallMart, restaurants, concerts, rodeos and continual festivals are all within 15 minutes. You have the best of both worlds -- private and quiet natural beauty, as well as busy, local entertainment. The world-reknowned Grand Canyon is about an hour North, and the charming colorful Oak Creek Canyon/Sedona is about an hour South (although only 20 miles by the crow!) Heading East are many other canyons and the Petrified Forest, Meteor Crater a buffalo farm! Bearizona is East of Flagstaff as well as the famous Botanical Gardens which are a great trip for children as well as adults. You will be able to find pleasure in all directions and with all cultures. See the Northern Arizona Museum of Art with fabulous displays of native American art and culture or see a Mozart concert under the stars at the University, OR a rodeo at the local fairgrounds! BB King performed at the fairgrounds last year - just to give you an idea of the entertainment we get in lil'ol' Flagstaff! If you love reading, not only is there a great Barnes & Noble store about 7 miles away, the Northern Arizona University Library is equidistant. And summer classes there also! You just can't be bored!!!

At the house, we have a two-car garage and a special parking place along side the house for an RV or boat parking, whichever you prefer. A long driveway also accommodates guests you may have.

Keywords: Private gated community, modern, spectacular mtn. view of backyard forest and elk. Large covered redwood deck.

Forget You're in the Desert State of Arizona...The Perfect Place to Stay for a Family Vacation

Forget You're in the Desert State of Arizona...The Perfect Place to Stay for a Family Vacation
  • 5 of 5
Our family wants to thank you for helping us to have a wonderful, memorable family vacation in your home! It was the perfect location and the perfect centerpiece for our needs. We have 3 older children from 16-21 years old and being there allowed us to intersect with our kids all day and also gave everyone the space they needed to relax and reflect. A perfect blend of family time and personal time. The owner Mary has great TV and stereo equipment throughout the house, a sublime relaxing back deck, and a jacuzzi that was great to unwind in late at night. This home opens to a forest that is their backyard with the wonderful views of the peaks. For us, this rental is the perfect combination of great value, great cost! We typically stay in two rooms at four and five star hotels, but will likely change the way we travel as we were relaxed with all the comforts of home.
Mary had just installed a new stainless steel BBQ and the steaks were great. WOW! I want to go back just to enjoy the deck and grill. One night, we went to the local Safeway (the house is minutes away from everything) and bought steaks, lobsters, stuffed clams, and everything else to make the perfect dinner on the deck.
Any time you are renting a personal residence their are quirks, and anything that popped us was attended to quickly and effectively by Mary. The location is Forest Highlands which gives you a million dollar location , complete with countless stars in the sky at night. It is the best-suited location to visit downtown Historic Flagstaff (centerpiece of Route 66 for the area), Grand Canyon and breathless Sedona. The gated community where Mary's home is literally is the same road (Highway 89A) that takes you to Sedona. This route is the ideal way to drive, sightsee and visit several great area landmarks (Slide Rock, Oak Creek to name a few) from Mary's home to Sedona- only 40 wonderful minutes away!
In closing, we look forward to going back there in winter and maybe even to do some other fun stuff in the area beyond sightseeing. We highly recommend you consider this place as it is the perfect setting for anyone visiting the area!

Charming house in great location!

  • 5 of 5
This house was perfect for us! We went on a week long vacation with two children aged 6 & 7, my parents, and my husband. The two twin beds, the queen bed, and the king bed were all very comfortable with great pillows. The house was very clean and in a convenient location in the beautiful Forest Highlands community. It was a short, easy walk or bike ride to the park, and you could take off on a hike of the "wetlands" area right off the back patio. It was also nice that the house had wi-fi, as well as a DVR setup so the kids could record and watch some of their favorite cartoons. The owners were very helpful and accessible when we had questions.

Wonderful Vacation House!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at this property was great! The beautiful view from the partially covered back patio was wonderful, and we spent a lot of time out there. We had two couples in our party, and there was plenty of space for us. The master bedroom is very nice, with great linens on the comfy king bed. I think it is one of the most private locations in Forest Highlands. We left some items behind and the owner quickly contacted her cleaning woman to recover them and get them back to us. We really appreciated that! We would definately stay at this property again!

Our granddaughters and my wife and I stayed for a week in this lovely house. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and found the house and amenities first class. The view from the living roo m and patio of the San Francisco Peaks were a highlight of our stay. We arose with a beautiful view and retired at night with their majestic peaks shining in the twilight. The location was so peaceful and quite. Never were we disturbed by anything. Miss Mary, our hostess, was so accommodating to all that we asked. She expressed genuine interest in and concern for us and our stay. She was always available if we needed to ask something of her. We do highly recommend this rental as one that any family, group or individual will find charming, comfortable, well maintained and in an area truly beautiful. If you are seeking a place to rent that is close to all your needs, terrific sites, easily accessible and calming, this is it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Winter Stay

  • 4 of 5
We stayed at the property the week before Christmas. Our boys had a wonderful time. The location was great, backing to open fields of snow and woods. We feel we had wonderful privacy. The golf course exercise room was open to us, which was an added bonus. The lodging was cozy, we made great use of the fireplace and hot tub. Hope to get back next year.

Great views!!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you for opening up your home to our family! Your home is very warm and cozy. Loved the nice TVs, including Directv with all of the movie channels! The deck has the most amazing views of the San Francisco Peaks! We sat out there for hours....drank coffee out there every morning and had dinner out there almost every night! The cul-de-sac location was perfect for the boys to throw around the football. They rode bikes to the park several times throughout the day. Of course, our Lab, Ellie, loved hanging out in the cool weather. She found some of the balls that were in your yard so she had tons of fun! We look forward to staying at your home in the future!
