The Little Blue House -- What a Jewel!!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at several VRBO's in Prescott. We thoroughly enjoyed the first two, but the Little Blue House is by far our favorite. And even though the other two were closer to the Courthouse Square, the little bit farther distance to the Courthouse was well worth it! It is on a lovely street which was fun to walk up and down, especially this time of year with Halloween decorations appearing in the yards! The cottage itself is lovely! It is well-maintained, very nicely decorated, and it was immaculately clean. It was so cozy and comfortable, we did not want to leave it to explore Prescott. We did, however, and because of its central location, it was easy to go in any direction to hike, play golf, kayak, etc. It was very pleasant sitting in the backyard early in the morning with the warm sun coming through the trees, sipping coffee and listening to the fountain. In the afternoon the front porch was a comfortable place to be, reading, people-watching and enjoying the sun. With all of the windows -- while we were indoors, it felt like we were sitting outdoors with all of the beautiful trees and vines. We definitely enjoyed ourselves and hope to return again soon!

We spent 3 days at this amazing property while mountain biking in Prescott. The home is beautifully updated, and is in a great location close to town and mountain bike riding trails. WE use VRBO a lot for travel, this rental is one our favorites.

Really wonderful.

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful stay in the Blue House. It was everything I had hoped for. Very well taken care of, and lots of hospitality touches. Better than any hotel in the Prescott area by far. It was great coming home to the Blue House after my program at the college every day. Very relaxing, and quiet at night. Thanks! I'll definitely rent this gem again!

Quiet, comfortable and welcoming.

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked up to the colorfully decorated front porch and entered this sunny, comfortable, beautiful little home, we were enchanted. The smallest details were evident in the tasteful decor. The thought for comfort of the guests was amazing and greatly appreciated.

The location was perfect for our trips to Sedona, Jerome and the Grand Canyon. And we love Prescott!

It is a delight to sit on the patio, watching the birds enjoying the fountain. And on our last morning there, while having our coffee, we were joined by a covey of quail.

Our whole experience was perfect. We certainly were sorry to leave and already planning a return visit to that "Happy Little Blue House".

Thank you for making our Arizona vacation a very memorable experience.
