House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps up to 10)
We live in Phoenix, Arizona; our two children are grown, and we share our home with three dogs. In 2006, after having enjoyed a summer home in Sedona for 3 years, we began looking for something larger (and with cooler temperatures) in Flagstaff. We love to travel - here is a picture of us in Santorini, Greece. We hope you experience the magic of Windy View Ranch as much as we do; you'll enjoy a feeling of peace and relaxation as you escape the stresses of everyday life and enjoy the beautiful surroundings that make Flagstaff so special...
Owner purchased this House in 2006
Why Owner chose Flagstaff
Flagstaff is a short 2-hour drive from Phoenix, but the temperatures are typically 25 to 35 degrees cooler, making this the perfect mountain getaway! Flagstaff is a beautiful area with mountains, forests and wildlife, yet the city is large enough to have the shopping, dining and amenities that you'd find in a larger urban environment. It's the best of both worlds!
What makes this House unique
Secluded, rural environment; miles and miles of national forest right out the back door; the most perfect, unobstructed view of the San Francisco Peaks mountain range; yet only a 10-minute drive to the grocery store. The best of ALL worlds!

Everything about the Windy View Ranch was PERFECT! Enough space for 7 of us and everything you could possibly need. The surround sound made a great movie night. The location is central to all the major touristy things. So awesome to come "home" to this place every evening and be able to relax. Had 5 huge elk come to the backyard one evening....so cool to watch! Cheryl was super responsive with questions. Would stay here again 100%!
Windy View Ranch was perfect in every way! From the well appointed beautiful home, breathtaking views, wildlife, secluded and quiet but yet conveniently located to grocery stores, shopping, restaurants, and major highways for day trips. Cheryl has thought of everything from a welcome/property information binder, labeling all cupboards/drawers, keeping area information categorized so that what you’re looking for is easily found and her home is impeccably clean and organized!! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! I would highly recommend staying at Windy View Ranch.
We stayed at Windy View Ranch during the second week of March, 2019. First of all, the house is even more amazing in person than in the pictures! We had considered several hotels and home properties, but chose Windy View because of it's seclusion. I'm so glad we did! I will never stay in a hotel again! The weather was cold and snowy. We loved being able to sit by the fire and relax. The home has spectacular views of both the San Francisco Mountains and the nearby forest. It sits at the back of a small community, so has a lot of privacy. The sound of silence was such a gift! No traffic, sirens, barking dogs, or leaf blowers! I got up each morning, had a cup of coffee, and took in the views by the fireplace. We spent a lot of time lounging on the overstuffed leather couches and reading our favorite books. The home provides both movies and board games, both of which we enjoyed! There is plenty of space and would be a great get away for large families. The kitchen is big and has everything you need. All we had to do is drop by the nearby Safeway and stock the fridge with food. We came to enjoy the Grand Canyon and Monument Valley, but really liked the parks near Flagstaff. If you are there, check out Walnut Canyon and Sunset Crater/Wupatki Parks. Sunset Crater does not have a lot of visitors, so it was very peaceful. There are fantastic views of the painted desert and the SF mountains from this park. We were also surprised to find that Flagstaff is such a charming city. We enjoyed several of the restaurants (Fat Olives, The Cottage, Brix) and one of the local coffee shops (Firecreek). We also took a short trip to Sedona. If you are having trouble choosing where you will stay, look no further. Choose Windy View Ranch and you won't be disappointed.
We are delighted to receive your lovely review! You were able to experience so many of the great northern Arizona attractions, and to also just enjoy the solitude of the home and surroundings as well. We were honored you chose us for your mountain getaway, and we’d love you to come back and experience the summer season next!
We have been renting a cabin every year in Flagstaff for over 10 years. This home by far was the best home on every level!
Our home for christmas!
Our stay was, as always, perfect.
It is a pleasure to arrive and find everything clean, stocked (lots of blankets, pillows, towels, no shortage of glasses, dishes, silverware, etc.) and after a few minutes..settled in front of the warm fireplace....making ourselves at home for our early Christmas celebration. Did we mention the christmas tree?
The property is set back from the road with the forest out the font door and the mountain out the back with an unobstructed view of both.
Anything needed is close enough but far enough to experience the peacefulness.
With everything on one floor, accessibility is easy for anyone.
The home is well appointed and has a very comfortable feel....kinda like: aaahhhh!
Making arrangements for our stay is always effortless with all details provided, questions answered, and a welcoming attitude.
Thank you so much again..for making it a great getaway!
L,T, and family.
The home is beautiful, but the living room furniture needs a major update! Lots of recliners but none of them are comfortable. All other areas of the home were very nice, great outdoor seating.
Thank you for the feedback. We will definitely take a look at the sofas however this is the first feedback we’ve ever received that is anything short of stellar on the comfort of the living room. So sorry you didn’t find them comfortable; thank you for being our guests and I am so glad you found everything else to your satisfaction. UPDATE 1/2/19 - Brand new couches just ordered and will be arriving on 1/6/19!
