THE TERRACE-2.5 BLOCKS FROM HISTORIC DOWNTOWN SQUARE & WHISKEY ROW

Prescott Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 1.5 bathroom close to Downtown Square

The Terrace is located in the historic residential area just 2 and a half short blocks from The Historic Downtown Courthouse Square & Whiskey Row. There is a tremendous array of activities at The Square and you are literally only a short 3 to 5 minute walk from The Square and the famous Whiskey Row.

The Terrace was professionally decorated with a romantic French theme in mind. We recently renovated the entire property with new tile, carpet, paint, and wood trim work throughout. When you arrive and walk-out onto The Terrace deck and view Thumb Butte Mountain, immediately all of your stress vanishes!

The outside Terrace Deck is quaint and a fabulous place to relax, barbecue or sit and have a quiet cup of coffee or espresso! Just sit and watch your neighbors stroll the sidewalks of the historic residential area which The Terrace is nestled amongst.

The Terrace is approximately 1,100 square feet with two bedrooms (king size bed in the master bedroom and double bed in the second bedroom), full bath/shower, very large completely stocked kitchen (cook your Thanksgiving, Christmas or Easter dinner), nook eating area and living room with new 40' flat screen HDTV, HD cable, and Blu-Ray DVD which enables you to downstream Netflix, since we have high speed WIFI access. The Terrace can easily accommodate two couples or a family of five. Also remember we are pet friendly, so bring the pooch!

What are you waiting for??? Whether you are escaping the scorching heat of the valley or exploring the hidden treasures of The Courthouse Square & Whiskey Row and Prescott's Western Heritage, you need to stay and relax at either The Terrace, The Cottage (VRBO 442389 which is next door to The Terrace) or The Artist's Loft (VRBO 336756 which is located near historic Park Ave.)!!!

My wife Deni and I found Prescott in 2007, and we will never leave, since Prescott has everything that you could ever hope for. My wife is retired, yet fully engaged in activities. She is a very accomplished artist, and she teaches an informal art class to friends once a week. In addition, she owns a horse that she rides on trails in and around Granite Mountain. I am still working, and as a result of my job, I travel throughout the United States. Bonner, our 210 pound English Mastiff, is our spoiled kid, since we are empty nesters.

Larry Schmidt purchased this bungalow in 2012

When The Terrace became available for purchase in early 2012, we could not help ourselves so we jumped at the opportunity to purchase this unique and fantastic property. I have watched this property over the last several years, and I always felt its street appeal and exceptional location were perfect for travelers exploring all that Prescott and The Historic Downtown Square has to to offer. In addition as a result of The Great Recession, our 401K like many others became a 201K!!! So we felt another investment in a fantastic VRBO property, would be a sound investment compared to our '201K'!!!

So we purchased the property, and it closed at the end of April, 2012, which was approximately 3 weeks later than planned due to the 'New Economy' and the ridiculous current rules of the mortgage companies!!! We have done substantial renovations and remodels to The Terrace, resulting in a romantic French feel. This property is also well suited for one month stays or more.

This property has been a labor of love, but it is now a shining jewel nestled in the residential historic district. All day long people stroll around the block with their dogs admiring the array of historic and eclectic homes, and The Terrace is a significant part of the area.

In conclusion, although there were lots of hoops and hurdles, we are immensely satisfied with The Terrace (also see our neighboring property, The Cottage at VRBO site 442389), and we are confident that you will be as well...so please visit and enjoy!!!

The uniqueness of this property is the fact that it is like a private home which is so close to all of the activites of the Historic downtown square yet nestled in a quiet well kept neighborhood. The rental experience would be nearly impossible to match in the Historic District!

In addition, the street appeal of the Dutch Bungalow architecture is so alluring, that your anticipation is at a very high level of what the accommodations will be inside The Terrace.

ABSOLUTE THE BEST ALTERNATIVE TO A HOTEL!

  • 5 of 5
I travel weekly and always look for options that are not in a hotel. I stayed in this lovely Terrace for 4 nights. It was a wonderful place to stay, beautifully decorate in a French theme. Very comfortable, clean and has everything you need. Larry is great - he came and gave me a tutorial on working Netflix and the t.v.

HOME, AWAY FROM HOME...

  • 5 of 5
Exactly as advertised. Fantastic location, spotless throughout, everything you could possibly need is there, just add your culinary pleasures (We made a great batch of chili) some nice music (supplied) and you're living large...5 min walk to the square and every possible eatery or shop to choose from. We ate at a great Italian place, watched the baseball playoffs at a great pub and did some relaxing strolling around town. Prescott is Arizona's little gem, or Mayberry if you will. It's fast (if that's what you want) it's slow, it's modern, it's classic...one stop shopping. And you couldn't pick a better launching place to take it all in from than this place. Jill and I are already planning our next visit up to Prescott (If Larry will have us) and we can't wait... and did I mention the bed?...or "My Cloud" as I called it...My only regret about the entire trip was I couldn't fit it in my trunk...Thanks Larry, See you and Prescott soon.

WONDERFUL STAY!

  • 5 of 5
Stayed at The Terrace this week for 4 days. The bungalow was just as the pictures showed. It was spotless clean, the kitchen was fully stocked with everything you would need to cook your meals. The bedrooms were comfortable and beautiful. The décor was so inviting. The terrace was so wonderful to sit and enjoy the gorgeous weather, the view, beautiful trees, beautiful neighborhood. We were close to the downtown and yet it was not noisy. Close to all those wonderful places to eat and do some shopping. Larry was there to greet us and made himself available if we needed anything. Which we didn't because everything was perfect! Looking forward to staying there again!

PERFECT GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
The Terrace was exactly as described and a perfect escape from the heat of Phoenix. We particularly enjoyed grilling on the balcony as well as sitting out for an evening drink. The location is perfect for exploring historic Prescott. Don't miss the Sharlot Museum. The neighborhood is reminiscent of a Norman Rockwell painting, i.e.nostalgically charming. We plan to return for a post-Christmas break. Larry is an excellent host and makes sure your stay is enjoyable.

A SLICE OF AMERICANA

  • 5 of 5
My long weekend getaway from the Valley of the Sun to Prescott was such a wonderful treat for me. The weather and the location turned out perfect for my mini vacation.

I had hoped to rent another one of the Schmidt's properties but it was already taken for the dates I needed for this trip. When Larry told me that news I was somewhat disapointed but he was quick to offer another property and with limited time to browse any further I agreed to his suggestion.

Believe me...I was very pleasantly surprised as it exceeded my expectations with all the comforts of home and then some! Very tastefully decorated, exceptionally clean and stocked with all the necessary kitchen utensils, pots & pans, spices for cooking and even several sizes of cutting boards. I made use of the outside grill (the propane tank WAS filled ...woohoo! )and the quant outside patio seating area was perfect. Great flatscreen T.V. and I had no problems with the wireless connections.

There are two bedrooms and both beds were very, very comfortable(had to try them both). My only recommendation is that I wish there was a small nightlight in the bathroom. It was pitch black with the drapes drawn in the bedrooms. Bathrooms were well stocked with supplies, large bath towels in the Jack & Jill bathroom and the hot water was hot and cold water cold...as it should be!

Although The Townhouse is very close to the downtown area it was remarkably quiet in the evening and at night. I was on a artist retreat weekened getaway, so I spent most of my time drawing, painting and relaxing. The location worked out perfect for me. Great choice of artwork for that unit!!!

The downtown area is closeby with lots of restaurants to choose from, along with nightlife and other activities. When I was taking a stroll to town all the people I passed by..some working in their yards...some just getting in their cars were very friendly saying hell-o and smiling.This reminded me of the idyllic town of "Mayberry". I was halfway expecting Barney and Andy to come walking around the corner at some point in time.

Larry was very helpful in providing a restaurant recommendation list. The Dinner Bell Care has a great breakfast selection menu as The Schmidt's stated. Great spot to start your day but beware that if you order a biscuit with your eggs it's more like a loaf of bread!

Highly recommend The Townhouse and I'm looking forward to another stay there in the future.

Owner's Response: Wow, that is probably the best and most concise review that I have ever received!
Prescott trully is a "Slice of Americana", and a quaint blast from the past that could be captured in a Norman Rockwell painting.
Please come back and enjoy our distinct mild four seasons in any of our Prescott properties: The Cottage, The Townhouse, The Terrace, The Artist's Loft or Our Historic Home.
Hope to see you soon.

The star attraction of Prescott is the Historic Downtown Courthouse Square and the famous Whiskey Row. The Courthouse was the original Territorial Capital for Arizona beginning in the 1860s, and Whiskey Row is the site of western saloons and brothels of years past! The Square is the heartbeat of Prescott, where you find a vast variety of boutique and specialty shops, original saloons, locally owned restaurants (including organic only restaurants), local art galleries, museums bars with live music.

In fact virtually every night of the week, you will find at least one bar with live music. On the weekends, you will have a choice of country, classic rock, hard rock, contemporary and jazz music. Starting in the spring going through the early fall, there is musicians during the week at The Square sponsored by the City of Prescott.

Prescott has often been voted one of the top five cities to retire in, but there is a vast array of activities for all ages. Our location easily facilitates day trips to the Grand Canyon of Sedona with its awesome Red Rock vistas. When most people think of Arizona, they think of the hot desert (remember it is dry heat, but over 100 degrees is too hot regardless) and Phoenix or Tucson. But not Prescott, since it is at 5,300 elevation within the Prescott National Forest. Feel the cool summer nights and escape the heat of the desert!!!

Don't forget to come during the fall and winter, since Prescott is a year round destination with four distinct seasons, but with temperate temperatures in both the winter and summer. Some annual seasonal events to remember are as follows:

In April the annual world famous amateur and pro Whiskey Row Off Road Mountain Bike Race

During the first week of July the Oldest Rodeo in North America and Fourth of July Parade around Downtown

For the month of October, Mount Vernon Street (one street east of the property) with its Victorian Homes are totally decked out for Halloween, and our Halloween Eve the street is shut down for the kids and Trick or Treating

Prescott is renowned as the Christmas City of Arizona. The Historic Square is totally decked out with lights and decorations. The first Friday in December is Acker Night, where the Square is closed to traffic, and all of the shops and restaurants/bars have musicians playing. Also there are two separate Christmas parades.

So what are you waiting for, come visit and explore all that Prescott and The Historic Downtown Courthouse Square has to offer.
