This beautifully remodeled 3 bedroom, 2 bath home is in a very quiet neighborhood near McPherson and Buffalo Parks, a five minute drive from downtown Flagstaff and 20 minutes from the Snowbowl. The location is perfect to enjoy the beauty of outdoor Flagstaff and still have easy access to stores, shopping and dining! It's a short walk from the front door to Flagstaff's Urban Trail system, with its wonderful San Francisco Peak views and tall pines lining the hiking and biking trails. The city tennis courts, ice skating rink and 18-hole championship Frisbee course are right across the street--behind the trees!
This home sleeps six with comfortable one king, one queen, and two twin beds, a fireplace in the front living room, wood stove and HD TV (DirecTV satellite) in the den, plus wireless internet, Ipod docking station for your favorite music, DVD players and board games. When you decide to cook, the kitchen is equipped with everything you’d need. Outside you'll find the gas grill, tennis rackets and balls, a basketball, Frisbee, and two cruiser bikes ready to explore the neighborhood!
Take a day trip to the Grand Canyon, hike down to the ancient cliff dwellings at Walnut Canyon, study the pueblo ruins of Wupatki National Monument, or visit the Snowbowl for skiing, snowboarding, sledding or a scenic ride on the ski lift. If your interest is astronomy, visit Lowell Observatory, where Pluto was discovered; or for other historic and geologic wonders, try Sunset Crater, Meteor Crater, or the lovely drive south of Flag through Oak Creek Canyon and on to marvel at the world-famous red rocks of Sedona! Northern Arizona University (NAU) is two miles away for those who are student-minded. Finally, there are several nearby golf courses and lakes for fishing or boating. Enjoy Flagstaff and experience great outdoor FUN in all four seasons!

We live in Phoenix, Arizona, have been married since 1990 and have two children (our son, now at ASU, and our daughter, still at home). Here we are outside the Grand Tetons north of Jackson, WY in summer 2011.
Kevin and a business partner purchased this Flagstaff home in late 2007, intending to remodel and then sell it. After the remodel was completed, they realized what a wonderful vacation home it would be for us and others as well! Working together, the two partners furnished and decorated it. In July 2009 we bought out Kevin’s partner. Now we stay as often as we can, making sure it's in good shape and trying to think of everything a guest would need to be comfortable.
People from all over the United States and the world travel to Flagstaff to see the Grand Canyon, Sedona, Monument Valley, Walnut Canyon and much more, and there's no doubt: This home is a great central hub and place to relax after a long day of sightseeing, hiking or skiing!
