Enjoy our newly remodeled "Industrial Farmhouse" at the base of Mount Elden
About Velvet Gardiner
Jeff and I have been together for over 13 years now, and we love to purchase a home and completely remodel it while living in it. Well, when I say we love this....it can get old when the kitchen is completely gutted, you're down to one bathroom, and you have nothing but plywood flooring. LOL! This home was built in '92 and had white carpet throughout the house (even in the bathrooms), white walls, white ceilings, marble around the fireplace, and oak trim throughout including cabinets/windows/door casings, etc. YUCK! When the previous owners walked us through the home when we were considering putting an offer on it, we knew from the beginning what we would do.... Make it look like an old refurbished industrial farmhouse. So we started gathering all of our materials from old barn wood, shiplap siding (some of which came from old buildings), old tumbled brick, etc. The brick we gathered from torn down or burnt down houses from Flagstaff, Winslow, AZ, and parts of New Mexico. The remodel began in February 2015. Now we want to share the beauty of our home with people, like yourself, who want to enjoy the majestic nature of Northern Arizona. We are animal lovers and encourage you to bring your pets as we have wonderful hiking trails that your pets will absolutely love. Since we live at the base of Mount Elden your entire family will enjoy the abundant hiking just at the edge of our cul-de-sac. We encourage constructive feedback after you've stayed in our home. We are always making improvements when we hear great suggestions from others. We encourage you to come and enjoy our home!
Velvet Gardiner purchased this House in 2014
Why Velvet Gardiner chose Shadow Mountain
This property, as you read above, has our sweat and tears built into our home. Even though the home is very open inside and has very high ceilings, you will feel how cozy and quaint it is when staying here. The tongue and groove ceilings along with the wood beams are gorgeous. The rod iron railings in the loft allow anyone upstairs to overlook the kitchen/dining/living rooms; making everyone feel right at home. The kitchen and dining area with plenty of barstool seating makes it comfortable to cook or bake while everyone is enjoying the comfort of being together and smelling the rich aroma of the cook at hand. We had 7 people cooking or baking in the kitchen for Christmas 2016 at one time, as well as, 38 people in our home for dinner and there was plenty of room. The outside balcony/patio areas all look upon Mount Elden where you can sit and enjoy a nice glass of wine in the evening or a cup of coffee in the morning. If you are looking for a place to have a great time and reconnect with family or friends, you found your home!

This house is awesome and the owners are great at communication and the house has every detail thought out. Items in the home are labeled for convenience and everything works perfectly. We had an incredible time in this beautiful home with my family. Highly recommend this property.
60th Bday Family Celebration
The house was perfect for a large family celebration. The kitchen was very well equipped. So many unexpected staples and gadgets.
This home was created with love by the owners.
Beds were all very comfortable. Many areas to gather and not crowd each other.
Owners were responsive.
Nice private Circle location. Very close to Safeway and Sam’s Club.
Only disappointment, was that we were not able to use the hot tub.
Great Ski Weekend!
Everything was fantastic! We loved the house, the hot tub, the awesome kitchen for cooking... all of it. The kids loved the bunk beds! Also, very responsive hosts when we had questions. I highly recommend it!
We thoroughly enjoyed this property and our stay. As is evident by the pictures, this property has been beautifully renovated throughout. The bunk bed / loft area is so fun and great for kids. This home had everything we needed throughout our weekend, and the hot tub was also enjoyable. The Owners/Property Managers were also great at communicating with us and making sure we had everything we needed. The only downside we experienced, which wasn't a huge issue but worth noting - since the garage is locked and can't be used by guests, you have to unload and carry all of your luggage up the steep flight of stairs through the front door. We stayed during a snowy weekend and there was a bit of ice on the driveway/stairs, so this was a bit of a challenge (and a workout) but not a big deal. We can't wait to stay here again - beautiful property!
Rachel we thank you so much for the wonderful review.
Wouldn't change a thing
The home and property is absolutely beautiful and in such a great location. Tons of amenities, the hosts are very communicative and helpful, wouldn't change a thing.
We stayed for a bachelorette party/bday celebration and had such a blast. Perfect space for a big group, and the bunk beds are a lot of fun. Would absolutely recommend.
Christine- we loved having you and your family in our home.
