My family and I was so overwhelmed and amazed with this wonderful well maintained retreat. It had all the amenties one could ask for. The house was clean, warm, spacious and accomodated my family and guest so comfortably.
Everyone was so pleased and satisfied with the game room, kitchen and family room including the fireplace.
The house was so conveniently close to NAU, Snowbowl, Grand Canyon, Sedona:
Restauarants-(Oregono's, Chipotle and Cracker Barrel);
Supermarkets-(Safeway, Bashas) and others places of interest we visited and enjoyed.
Overall, we were totally satisfied with our selection of this retreat. Desi and Lori were absolutely wonderful and provided everthing we needed and more. I will love to come and stay again in the summer and strongly recommend this retreat to other family and friends!
Thanks Desi and Lori for allowing us this Fabulous opportunity!

We rented this house for a small church group to have a mini-retreat and it worked perfectly. The house was huge, with plenty of space for people to relax and hang out. We especially enjoyed the great room which had a pool table, Foosball table, TV and drop-down projector screen (although the projector covered the TV so you watched one or the other). The Master Bedroom was huge and well appointed (big screen TV, seating area, Jacuzzi tub in the bathroom, etc.) The other bedrooms each had full or queen size beds so they worked well for couples but would not work quite as well if you had multiple people who did not want to share a bed.
The house was close to the highway which made finding it easy but you still had a good deal of privacy as it was heavily wooded. The backyard was a great space for hanging out as it had a gas grill, wooden bench swing, and several chairs. The owner provided us with a metal fire pit and we had a great time one of the evenings roasting marshmallows and hanging out around the fire.
If we head up to Flagstaff again we will look to see if this property is available!
The house was great. The space is clean and laid out so well. We enjoyed watching the olympics on the huge projector screen! The Master bedroom is very spacious. Would definitely return to this property.
This was a perfect place to gather for my parent's 50th anniversary. The house is spacious with plenty of room for multiple activities at the same time. The game room was in use almost constantly with pool being the game of choice. There is another living room where some of us could have quieter conversation! Since we love the forest, we ate the main meal outside - until the rain drove us back indoors!
This house is literally located at the base of the Arizona Snow Bowl mountain (Mt. Humphries/Agassiz), making it a quick trip to get to the ski lift (highly recommended). There is a fantastic disc golf course there as well that the boys tried to finish over the course of our stay, but never could due to intermittent lightning and rain! One day we visited Bearizona, a drive through bear habitat that we enjoyed. Our final activity was to hike to the end of the lava river cave (0.75 miles through a lava tunnel underground), also about 8 miles from the house. Make sure you take a flashlight or headlamp for every one or two people.
In July the temperature was beautiful at night and just a little warm in the day, unless it rained. We opened the windows at night and put a fan in the window sill for a refreshing breeze - free air conditioning!
The owner was super great to work with and responded quickly whenever I had a question--and I had plenty! :) Check out the photo book of how the house was built by the owner while you are there.
Overall, we had a great time, and really felt like we were able to "get away." I definitely would recommend this house. Thanks!
This is our first time stay here and we would rent again. We rented homes through HomeAway on several occasions and for this stay our group of eight ranged from ages 64 - 7. Everyone enjoyed the stay here. In fact, why stay at a hotel when you can have all this? Despite a recent mediocre review from another renter, our experience was nothing but great. Clean linens, clean floors, plenty of recreation options and fast and easy communication from the owner allowed us to focus on why we were here - to take first timers to the Grand Canyon. For those of you not accustomed to homes/cabins at higher elevations in the mountains, during the warmer months you will see spider webs on the exterior of a house, however, we didn't see any webs, insects or critters inside. It is normal life in the mountains surrounded by pines.
The beds were comfortable and using the window fans to draw in the cool air at night made for great sleeping. For you Keurig users, this property has a traditional drip coffee maker. Filters are provided but you will need to bring your own coffee. We used the gas grill one night and it worked fine. The property was built a few years back (check out the neat photo album of the construction) but is kept up well. The kitchen is well laid out for preparing meals and eating as a group in an informal setting. The multiple family rooms are good for adults that want quiet and also for those who don't mind hanging out with the kids at the pool and foosball table while the TV is going. I recommend turning on the ice machine in the freezer so you'll have ice later in the evening to mix cocktails. There is a small ice tray so you'll have some ice when you arrive but if you have a larger group, bring ice if you need to make drinks straight away.
The house is conveniently located to get into Flagstaff fairly quickly and it's about an hour to the GC. In the past, we've used hotels in Flagstaff and Tusayan but will return here as it is a better value and allows the entire family to hang out with plenty of space. Lastly, our damage deposit was returned quickly and the owner was always quick to respond to our messages. We have no hesitations recommending this property to others.
Had high expectations for this place based on the previous reviews - unfortunately it didn't live up to my expectations. It is starting to look worn so a lick of paint wouldn't go amiss. Whilst it had all the amenities listed, for our stay the master bathroom shower was out of order as it had been broken by a previous renter. Cleanliness was spotty with my daughter switching out beds as she found hair in her original one. The previous renter group was either large or there for a long time as both the trash and recycle bins were overflowing to the point that the local wild life was enjoying left overs. When we contacted the owner about this he told us to just continue to add our trash to the mess out on the curbside. With no wifi, too far outside town, the family enjoyed the dish tv and games in the games room. Convenient for the Grand Canyon as it is on the road from Flagstaff to the Grand Canyon, although grocery shopping is a 7 mile drive back into Flagstaff so try to plan accordingly. Try the Delhi Palace Indian in town as it was amazing.
