Overview

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.)!!!

About Larry Schmidt

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

Why Larry Schmidt chose Prescott

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!!!

What makes this bungalow unique

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.

We had an amazing family relaxation extended weekend here and LOVED it. It's close to downtown so we walked downtown every day for meals and ice cream. We have a 17 year old and an 11 year old and it was perfect for them. Very clean, very nice...wonderful

I realize the rental of The Townhouse was kind of at the last minute, but I am glad that it met or exceeded your expectations. Prescott is also a great place for the kids to come and visit. Hope to see you again at The Townhouse.

Beautiful and immaculate!

  • 5 of 5
I highly recommend renting this beautiful property. Everything was very clean and Larry was very pleasant to work with. The property was within walking distance of downtown with plenty of shops and restaurants. Very quiet neighborhood too! It was so much nicer to have room to spread out with our kids than being crammed in a hotel room. We would love to stay here again!

During the Holiday season in downtown Prescott there is so much to do at the Historic Square, and although it is fall/early winter in Arizona, we do get a true fall season yet not extreme colds.
Also, it is a place that kids can enjoy as well, and your children were so behaved. The breakfast your husband was preparing in The Terrace's large kitchen look and smelled scrumptious...I only asked to see if I could have a plate!!!
We hope to see you in the future.

Beautiful place

  • 5 of 5
There are 3 properties here. (Which had me confused as to which photo was which property). However Larry managed to put me straight with his very prompt responses. We stayed in the townhouse. Beautiful. Had a big enough garden for our two dogs. Only a five minute walk into Prescott town centre too - (also beautiful), where you have your pick of all kinds of fabulous restaurants and bars. Matts Bar has live country music and dancing on Saturday night. Great !
If you want to self cater however, the kitchen is stocked with everything you need (including spices and herbs). So all in all a perfect stay in a lovely little house, which is clean and well maintained. i would definitely go again, (assuming that's OK with you Larry).

I am glad that you took my recommendation and stayed at The Townhouse, which is setup very well for having your two pooches. Since The Townhouse is so close to the Historic Downtown Square, you are able to enjoy all of the shops, restaurants, art galleries and bars. Nightlife on Friday and Saturday at The Historic Square is fantastic, since there are 6 live bands within a 2 block area. I do not think you can even find that in Scottsdale, or for that matter in any town in Arizona.
You are always welcome back at any of the 3 Union Street properties. Hope to see you again in the near future.

home away from home

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at this comfortable townhouse for 3 days. It had everything you needed, it felt like home away from home. We were close to the downtown area which had some unique and fun shops. The bed was so comfortable and the place was very clean. It was nice to have the washer and dryer so when we packed to go home, everything was already clean. Thank you Larry for an enjoyable stay. Debby and Jimmy

I am happy that you were ultimately able to stay at The Townhouse. The Townhouse works great, since it is so close to the Historic Square, yet it is in a quiet, historic residential neighborhood. The Townhouse works great with the washer and dryer in the unit.
We hope to see you again, when you visit Prescott and the Southwest.

Wonderful little gem!

  • 5 of 5
The Terrace is a great little place so close to downtown. It's in a safe neighborhood, surrounded by gorgeous historical Prescott homes. Larry was more than accommodating and so helpful upon our last minute arrival. This unit has been remodeled beautifully. It's cozy, well-appointed, and made us feel right at home. We hope to come back again and again. Thanks, Larry!! We really appreciate everything you did for us to make our stay more than wonderful.

I am glad you and your young toddler enjoyed your stay at The Terrace. The outside deck is very enjoyable and relaxing, and I bet Oliver enjoyed watching the birds and people walking by during the day from his vantage point.
The neighborhood being a part of the Prescott historic home district is very safe and quiet.
Yes you and Oliver are welcome back anytime.
Sincerely Larry

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.
