Overview

About the property

3 Bdrm, 2 1/2 Bath, Walking Distance To Historic Downtown Prescott AZ

"Our Craftsman Home" is the perfect escape from the Phoenix or Las Vegas Summer Heat, or a quick weekend getaway into the Mountain Pines. 1.5 hours from Phoenix, 3 hours from Las Vegas, 5.5 hours from Los Angeles/Orange County. One mile to Whisky Row....

Feels like home, light & bright, open up the house during the summer for a nice breeze, or get the fireplace going during those colder times. There’s a nice patio deck off the kitchen for morning coffee, getting some fresh air or just enjoying the view.

Rural feeling surrounded by natural landscaping and trees, yet walking distance to all your needs, including Downtown Whisky Row & the Courthouse Square.

Drive-in from Los Angeles, Phoenix or Las Vegas. Or fly in on Great Lakes Airlines. Check your city for direct flights. Once you get to the house, you can walk or ride a bike to wherever you need to get to.

Kick back in a beautifully furnished home walking distance to all that Prescott has to offer. The Craftsman Home has a first floor bedroom with a king size bed, ceiling fan, clock radio with docking station for your I-phone or USB for any other phone. There are 2 bedrooms downstairs one with a queen size bed the other with a full size, dressers, ceiling fans and large closets. You can stay home and cook meals in the fully equipped, modern kitchen. There is a front porch with rocking chairs to quietly sit and read a book or to enjoy a glass of wine with a friend. The yard is professionally landscaped with solar lighting guiding you along a walking path in the back yard. The patio has a Weber barbecue grill and seating for up to eight people. It’s a great location for entertaining whether serving meals or stargazing on a cool summer evening. There is a bathroom on each floor, full size washer & dryer, satellite TV and Wi-Fi.

The weather in Prescott is hard to beat: more than 300 days of sunshine with four distinct seasons due to the 5400 feet elevation. The town square has various boutiques, open-air bistros, numerous restaurants, live entertainment nightly, theaters, art shows, film festivals, craft fairs and outdoor concerts. It’s also the Christmas capital of Arizona with activities galore during the holiday season. Never a dull moment… check out the “Things to DO” at www.prescott.com. This website will update you with attractions, tours, outdoor recreation, winery tours, shopping, casinos and special events.

There are hiking and biking trails for the outdoor enthusiast along with bike shops that will rent equipment to you and your family. We have trail maps and menus along with suggestions of places to visit. Prescott was the first capital of the territory of Arizona and is home to the Prescott National Forest. This is pine tree country with scenic crystal clear mountain lakes and it provides activities that are fun and picturesque beyond words. Watson Lake is 4 miles from home and one of our favorite places to go as it features fishing, boating, kayaking, canoeing, hiking, rock climbing, camping and day picnicking.

About Property Manager/Owner

Hello! We are Doug and Barbara Johnston and our “main” home is in Bakersfield, California. At every opportunity, we escape to the peace and relaxation we have in our "Craftsman Home" at Prescott! We hope you’ll enjoy it as much as we do.

Why Property Manager/Owner chose Prescott

During the many years we’ve traveled abroad, we always kept an eye open for a “getaway place” to enjoy and perhaps even live one day. A laid back place that was slow and relaxed and yet one that offered a variety of activities that would keep things fresh and exciting. On our most recent trip to Prescott Arizona we knew we'd found what we were looking for. With it's warm, friendly people – we knew we found the perfect destination.

When we first saw the Craftsman home, it was all over. We'd found a beautiful home that was easily accessible to the Town of Prescott and yet far enough away to retain it’s exclusivity, yes….we knew this was the right place….the little piece of paradise that we could call our own! Quaint and stunningly impressive with it's Craftsman style and lost in the woods feel we bought and we’ve not had one regret!

What makes this house unique

Feels like home, light, bright, open floor plan with all the amenities needed to be at home, while away from home. Closeness to all that the Prescott area has to offer.

It just doesn't get much better then this.

Wonderful stay! 5 star Home and hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

This Home was even more beautiful in person if that can even be possible. It was clean, well stocked and we had one of the most relaxing weekends we have had in years. The outside fireplace was great. While sitting on the deck outside the kitchen we saw Deer passing by. The hosts were also great in making sure we had all info we needed! Thanks - we will be back!

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My family of four thoroughly enjoyed our four-night stay at this gorgeous property. From the moment we arrived, we all felt right at home. Well-appointed, spotlessly clean, comfortable, and charming -- there are plenty of superlatives I can use to describe this home. In particular, we loved the outdoor seating area with wood-burning fireplace. The whole experience was, quite honestly, perhaps the finest we've ever had through VRBO (and we travel a lot). Hope to return next year!

This is a beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

The home is tastefully decorated and immaculate. The owners have anticipated your every need and have provided more than just the basics. We enjoyed sitting on the deck watching butterflies and humming birds during the day and sitting by the outdoor fireplace in the evening. We look forward to enjoying this home again.

This charming home is beautifully appointed, welcoming, clean, roomy and just delightful. The outdoor spaces are just wonderful. Although there are other homes very near, the perfect landscaping provides total privacy. We will be back!

Beautiful home in a wonderful area of Prescott!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in this beautiful home. We couldn't ask for a nicer place to enjoy the mountain summer. The location is perfect - a quiet neighborhood convenient to downtown Prescott, restaurants, golf courses. What more could we ask for? The home is beautifully designed and decorated. Everything we needed was there. Loved sitting on the front porch in the morning and dining outside in the evenings. Doug and Barb have a wonderful property and are such nice people. Anything we needed was just a phone call away. We feel very lucky to have been able to stay here and look forward to visiting again next summer. Thank you!

Did you know that the Prescott’s year-round activities have made it one of the top destinations in the Southwest? Stroll to the dozens of antique shops, boutiques, stunning art galleries, and restaurants from your cottage. Enjoy the nightlife of Whiskey Row, as well as Prescott’s new state-of-the-art library also within walking distance. We also have several public golf courses nearby so bring your clubs!

With more than 300 days of sunshine per year and four mild seasons, Prescott is a year-round destination. Prescott is known internationally for the World’s Oldest Rodeo in July, the Prescott Bluegrass Festival in June, dozens of arts and craft shows (some juried), and the Cowboy Poets Gathering. Did you know that Prescott is recognized as Arizona’s ‘official’ Christmas City? Join us for the spectacular tree lighting on Courthouse Square and our electric parade. Also, be part of the thousands of people who stroll the free live entertainment featured in every downtown shop for Acker night in December; a music festival like no other! For these attractions, be sure to book your stay early.
