We left our heart in the Little Blue House

  • 5 of 5

This little home is a slice of heaven! It is in the amazing town of Prescott and all it has to offer is a short walk away. We have been coming here for many years and have watched this little home evolve into a romantic, warm, peaceful and welcoming destination. Everything is perfect from the welcoming flowers to the little extra treats. The beds are super comfortable. We read our paper daily in the rockers on the front porch. In the evening we share wine and cheese in the sweet backyard patio area. We will return every year as it is one of our "great escapes" from the heat and busy city.

Wonderful Place in Prescott on Mount Vernon Street

  • 5 of 5

This is our 4th Year staying at Rachel's house. Flowers got an earlier bloom this year.

The Trumpet vines along the fence filled in nicely. Lynda and I, along with our pups have always enjoy our stay in Prescott. And the Firefighters did an amazing job during the Goodwin Fire outbreak to help contain the fire to outside Dewey-Humboldt, so that City of Prescott can enjoy their 4th July Rodeo Events.

Best VRBO Ever!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Little Blue House when in Prescott for our son's graduation from college. The house was perfect for entertaining our out of town family. The house was clean, well appointed, and the attention to details were fantastic. Upon our arrival, we were met with chocolate, flowers and a nice bottle of wine. The pictures are very good, but the house is even better than shown in the pictures.

The location of the house is fantastic. Walking distance to the historic downtown. We loved the house and did not want to leave. Would highly recommend the Little Blue House.

Thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home.

Beautiful home, close to town, very clean!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect location for our annual weekend trip to Prescott. Rachel's home is beautiful with an attention to detail and cleanliness. Everything we needed was provided in the house from toiletries to basic kitchen supplies to laundry detergent. The beds were comfy with lots of pillows. The back patio in the morning sun and the front porch in the evenings were highlights of our stay. Thank you!!!
