We are the Brooks family raising our family in a community we love.

James Brooks purchased this house in 2012

The downtown area has always had a charm that was irresistible.

Walking distance to downtown, far enough to be quiet in the busy season, yet close enough to walk to dinner or downtown events.

GEM OF A HOME!

  • 5 of 5
4 adults, 2 kids and 2 dogs and we all fit beautifully with room to spare. As has been mentioned before, the location is perfect - close to downtown and two great parks - and the secret bedroom would be a hit with most any age kid. It's also stocked with a dollhouse, toys and games.

The kichen is spacious and beautifully stocked - lots of plates, silverware, good quality cooking utensils and best of all, really high quality, sharp kitchen knives. (We usually bring our own as most rental knives won't even cut butter.) The dining room table sits 6 and can easily fit 2 more, and the backyard has ample seating and a nice grill. The only thing missing was a coffetable, but we improvised with dining chairs and it held our wine glasses beautifully! :-)

GREAT LOCATION, GREAT PROPERTY!

  • 5 of 5
We (group of adults in 30's) used this as a place to stay for a wedding weekend in Flagstaff -
The house is located in a quiet neighborhood, walking distance to downtown and a large park in the northwest. It was much better than staying at a hotel, where you'd have to drive to get to downtown and deal with noise all night. The downtown hotels are also very noisy since they also serve as bars.
The house itself is beautiful, very well-maintained, and comfortable. The heat isn't too bad in Flagstaff since it cools off quite low at night. There was plenty of room for everyone, the full bath was nice, and it was handy to have the second bath upstairs. The backyard is very private and the deck was a nice place to sit, day or night. The kitchen and living room are just as nice as what you'd have at home, and everything we needed for cooking was available. Great to have a washer/dryer and dishwasher there as well.
We visited the Grand Canyon (about 1-1.5 hrs north), Sedona (about 1 hr southwest), and the ski resort (about 20 min) with ease. There are a ton of great places to see in downtown Flagstaff, there's a good grocery store about a mile north, and there's a great park for the whole family within a 10 min walk. With all that, coming back to this house was still one of the best parts of our trip! I would definitely reserve this place again and bring my family next time.

BIRCH HOUSE STAY

  • 5 of 5
Comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen, but we found the Krupps coffee maker difficult to use. We suggest the family leave printed directions on how to use. But everything else was
great. Comfy living room space. Clean and inviting. Would stay there again! Owner checked to be sure we were comfortably settled in. Nice park a block away.

GREAT HOUSE FOR FAMILIES

  • 5 of 5
This house was exactly what we needed with 4 adults and 2 kids.,the kids loved it and didn't want to leave! Little touches in the house make it very welcoming. The cubby house, special bedroom and toys made it kiddie heaven. And only a short walk to a great park for burning off more energy.
We mostly used the house as a launch point to see the Grand Canyon and other touristy destinations in the he area but also enjoyed flagstaff proper too.
Small issue with water heater fixed very promptly and owner very approachable. Able to offer suggestions for things to see and places to eat in and around town which were all great for what we needed with the 2 youngsters.

BEAUTIFUL AND UNEXPECTED

  • 5 of 5
I love older homes and live in one myself, so I am prepared for the creaks and groans of a home that has been around for over a hundred years. The Birch House did not meet ANY of my compromising expectations. The humble A frame you drive up to is a gateway to a luxurious and comfortable interior. There are nooks and crannies and the floors are gorgeous. We arrived at night in the snow, and the lights and the heater were on, with solar christmas lights on the post next to the front door. The rooms were large for an older home, and the upstairs was surpisingly roomy. I am 5'10 and my husband is 6'4 and we were comfortable. We accidentally stumbled upon the hidden wardrobe room - what an awesome surprise! The heated floors in the bathrooms were amazing and necessary during our stay. The backyard and the treehouse were perect exploring grounds for our 22 month old, and we were able to walk 1 block to a great kid's park and 3 blocks the other way to downtown Flagstaff, all while nesteled in a quiet historic neighborhood. This is my ideal Flagstaff getaway, and we will return to the Birch House. Enjoy!!

GREAT PLACE TO STAY IN A GREAT TOWN

  • 5 of 5
Everything about my family's stay in the Birch House was great: location, comfort, convenience, and charm. The house was clean and well-maintained. The friendly owner provided everything we needed, including laundry detergent, coffee, and soap and shampoo, which was a nice touch. The house itself definitely has character, so we felt welcomed to Flagstaff as soon as we unlocked the front door and stepped inside.
