Perfect Home Away From Home
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Matterhorn Place! The house was the perfect size for our family of 7, with plenty of room and lots of fun & very appreciated extras! Clean, great location, room for loved ones... you cannot go wrong for a Flagstaff getaway! Thank you, Todd!
Matterhorn Place was a great place to stay! It was centrally located to all the sites we wanted to see and had great restaurants/grocery stores nearby. It was very clean and just as listed. Todd really does go above and beyond to make sure his property is the best. We even got some snow and that made our trip that much better! Look no further this is where you want to stay!
What a find!
What a find! On arrival the caryopteris in full bloom. Beautiful! The living room is spacious with comfortable seating. I don’t think there was a thing we needed in the kitchen that wasn’t provided. There is also a family room, a bedroom and bath, and a full-size washer and dryer on the main level, as well as access to the large deck. Upstairs are 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths – including an en suite in the substantial master bedroom. On the lower level is a game table, television, comfy couch, and walk-out access to the fabulous patio! Todd Cislo was a dream to work with – just attentive enough! He said to let him know if there was anything we needed, but we really found no need to bother him. We are a three-generation family of six who came to Flagstaff for a family reunion with my many siblings and their spouses. Over the course of our stay 2 siblings joined us at Matterhorn Place, which is near to family members who live in Flagstaff. Before we got there I spoke with Todd about hosting a family dinner with our large group and he very kindly agreed, with extremely reasonable conditions. Matterhorn Place is well located for tourists; we put over 1000 miles on our rental car. I would absolutely recommend both this property and this landlord.
Thank You so much for staying with us and for such a wonderful review! It was our pleasure to help out a fellow "Flagstaffer"- a relation of yours who was affected by the Museum fire- by allowing you to host a family get-together at the house with the extended family all present. The least we could do...
We love hosting 3-generation parties, as they are truly what we are all about- making family memories a reality while providing accommodations that will cater to such, with ease. Thank You, again. Please come back and stay with us, anytime!
Matterhorn Place: A Perfect Base for Exploring Western Arizona
Exceptionally clean, well stocked kitchen, baths - many extras! Homeowner shared excellent recommendations for restaurants in the area and advice on sights to visit.
Our family group enjoyed this nice, clean, comfortable home.
It's music to our ears when the first thing a guest mentions is how clean the house is. We pride ourselves on offering the best experience possible- and that all starts with cleanliness, we believe. We also believe in making your time spent with us as carefree and uncomplicated as possible, too. It's our pleasure to be a help in any way possible. Thank You again.
Wonderful house, beautiful location
The house was perfect for our family trip. We had four adults and three teenagers and there was plenty of room for everyone. The basement rec room was great for playing cards or watching a movie and was a nice space for the teens to escape to. We had a lovely evening grilling on the patio and roasting marshmallows around the fire pit. The house is conveniently located for the Flagstaff attractions and is not too far from the Grand Canyon. Todd provided not only helpful recommendations for the area, but also the wood for our fire. I would highly recommend Matterhorn Place for anyone traveling with a big group to the Flagstaff area and we would definitely stay there again the next time we visit.
I am so happy the house worked out perfectly for your family- especially the basement bunkhouse and back deck/grill/fire pit areas. We agree they are the perfect place to spend time during our beautiful summer days and nights. So glad to be of help in any way, also. We look forward to your return, anytime! All the best!
Great house, great host
We really enjoyed our time in Swiss Manor/Matterhorn Place. It was the perfect house to stage our northern Arizona adventures, to include the Grand Canyon (south rim) and Sedona. Todd was a great host, with excellent communications and expert local tips/suggestions. We recommend Swiss Manor highly!!!
Thank You for the kind words. I am always so pleased when my tips are helpful. Glad the house was everything you hope for. We look forward to your return.
It's all about location, location, location. Swiss Manor neighborhood and specifically Matterhorn Place allows easy access and enjoyment to all things Flagstaff and the surrounding natural beauty of Northern Arizona like few other areas of town can. Being perched upon the flanks of MT. Elden provides immediate access/ viewing of all things "mountain". "Mountain Watching" from the couch or hanging on the front porch may become a favorite pastime. And the huge deck and backyard area will allow for endless fun and "chill" time- an important aspect of any fulfilling holiday. Hiking, running, mountain biking, skiing, climbing, and kayaking, etc., in the forests of Northern Arizona are world-renowned, attracting Olympic and world-caliber athletes from all corners of the world. Northern Arizona University injects Flagstaff with all things "University", from first-class facilities to activities and entertainment only a vibrant student population can attract and offer. The centrality of the Matterhorn Place allows for all this to be enjoyed easily without getting caught up in all the traffic and noise that can be so prevalent in other parts of town. Matterhorn Place is a peaceful escape after experiencing all Northern Arizona has to offer.
