Overview

Nob Hill Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 1.5 bathroom close to Downtown Square

The Terrace is located in the historic residential area just 2 and a half short blocks from The Historic Downtown Courthouse Square & Whiskey Row. There is a tremendous array of activities at The Square and you are literally only a short 3 to 5 minute walk from The Square and the famous Whiskey Row.

The Terrace was professionally decorated with a romantic French theme in mind. We recently renovated the entire property with new tile, carpet, paint, and wood trim work throughout. When you arrive and walk-out onto The Terrace deck and view Thumb Butte Mountain, immediately all of your stress vanishes!

The outside Terrace Deck is quaint and a fabulous place to relax, barbecue or sit and have a quiet cup of coffee or espresso! Just sit and watch your neighbors stroll the sidewalks of the historic residential area which The Terrace is nestled amongst.

The Terrace is approximately 1,100 square feet with two bedrooms (king size bed in the master bedroom and double bed in the second bedroom), full bath/shower, very large completely stocked kitchen (cook your Thanksgiving, Christmas or Easter dinner), nook eating area and living room with new 40' flat screen HDTV, HD cable, and Blu-Ray DVD which enables you to downstream Netflix, since we have high speed WIFI access. The Terrace can easily accommodate two couples or a family of five. Also remember we are pet friendly, so bring the pooch!

Check out our other exceptional properties all within walking distance of downtown! The Artist's Loft (VRBO #336756 our property near historic Park Ave), and The Cottage (VRBO #442389 next to The Terrace and The Townhouse).

About Larry Schmidt

Larry Schmidt, owner of the Terrace, Townhouse, and Cottage, owner of the Artist's Loft welcomes you to his VRBO units. Larry is still working for a company out of Minnesota and travels extensively. He enjoys golf, hiking, and traveling. Larry feels Prescott represents the charm of the West with midwestern values which is illustrated by the community centric Historic Square.

Larry Schmidt purchased this bungalow in 2012

Why Larry Schmidt chose Prescott

I purchased the Terrace and Townhouse in early 2012. I had watched this property over the last several years, and always felt its street appeal and exceptional location were perfect for travelers exploring all that Prescott and The Historic Downtown Square has to to offer.

I have invested in substantial renovations to the units, resulting in a romantic French feel in the Terrace and a southwestern feel in the Townhouse. Both units are well suited for one month or longer stays.

This property has been a labor of love, but it is now a shining jewel nestled in the residential historic district. All day long people stroll around the block with their dogs admiring the array of historic and eclectic homes, and the Terrace and Townhouse are a significant part of the area.

What makes this bungalow unique

The uniqueness of this property is the fact that it is like a private home which is so close to all of the activites of the Historic downtown square yet nestled in a quiet well kept neighborhood.

Perfect location close to downtown

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay in the Townhouse. While the kitchen was small, we had previously decided to go out for meals in order to see the sights and sounds of Prescott.

Larry was very attentive to any needs that developed and spent time on the patio next door with us and the other renters as he gave us a brief history of the Terrace, Townhouse, and Cottage.

We will be back.

Great location, comfortable setting, beautiful Prescott.

  • 5 of 5

This rental is very interesting as it is 3 separate rental parts that seem to overlap and wrap around themselves. The building is certainly unique. Very nicely put together rooms with everything you might need for your stay. We were able to BBQ on the propane grill (Brinkman, nice grill!) and cook breakfast on the stove, all we had to do was go grocery shopping and everything else you needed was there. High speed WiFi worked great. Never used the cable TV, but it looked like it was nice, large flat panel HD TV downstairs, an older tube TV up. Small washer/dryer stack unit upstairs, which we only used to launder couple loads of the provided sheets and towels before leaving, which worked very well. There is also a dishwasher to make life that much easier and also worked very well. The refrigerator seemed to be extra large, and kept everything ice cold. The best part about this property is the proximity to the square and Whiskey Row. We were there for a bachelor guys weekend out, but whatever your favorite part of Prescott, it's just a quick walk or drive away.

The owner was responsive and helpful with details before our visit, and was reachable by phone if you needed to (I dialed him by accident while he was golfing, sorry Larry!)

The Townhouse in Prescott

  • 4 of 5

My husband, two dogs, and I really enjoyed our stay at the Townhouse. The location was terrific and the place was very clean. We had all the supplies we needed. Once my dog that has only lived in a one-story house figured out the stairs, we were all set. Thank you for being so welcoming.!

Pleasant upstairs apartment

  • 4 of 5

The home was nicely furnished and decorated. We did have an ant problem during our 5 night stay which the owner was responsive to assisting us with. Since this is an upstairs unit, and the stairs are rather narrow and steep, we would not recommend it for small children or those with mobility issues. Overall, it was a pleasant, quiet place to stay with close proximity to downtown.

Owner's Response: Stephanie I am glad that enjoyed your stay, especially when it was so brutally hot down in Phoenix and Scottsdale during your stay. The weather was extremely hot in the valley during middle of June and early July, which means it is much hotter than normal in Prescott (100 to 103 degrees). During such periods of high heat and no rain (monsoon period came in the middle of July this year, which has been wonderful!!), there can be isolated ant activity in Prescott. As you noted, my manager and I reacted quickly to remedy your problem. As it relates to the stairs, The Terrace is older historic home, originally built in 1921, which gives its charm and uniqueness. With the older homes it is not uncommon to have stairs that are a bit smaller. Look forward to seeing you in the future. Sincerely Larry, owner

Lovely Place in a Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband, daughter, our dog and I stayed at The Terrace for the past long weekend and we loved every minute of it. Larry's properties have the most fantastic location just minutes away from Prescott's center, dining and fun, but still the area is very quiet and nice. The Terrace is very comfortable, fully stocked and the decoration is lovely. There is everything you might need from the fully stocked kitchen and bath to even a doggy gate & vacuum cleaner. We would love to visit again and definitely stay in one of Larry's properties.

The star attraction of Prescott is the Historic Downtown Courthouse Square and the famous Whiskey Row. The Courthouse was the original Territorial Capital for Arizona beginning in the 1860s, and Whiskey Row is the site of western saloons and brothels of years past! The Square is the heartbeat of Prescott, where you find a vast variety of boutique and specialty shops, original saloons, locally owned restaurants (including organic only restaurants), local art galleries, museums bars with live music.

In fact virtually every night of the week, you will find at least one bar with live music. On the weekends, you will have a choice of country, classic rock, hard rock, contemporary and jazz music. Starting in the spring going through the early fall, there is musicians during the week at The Square sponsored by the City of Prescott.

Prescott has often been voted one of the top five cities to retire in, but there is a vast array of activities for all ages. Our location easily facilitates day trips to the Grand Canyon of Sedona with its awesome Red Rock vistas. When most people think of Arizona, they think of the hot desert (remember it is dry heat, but over 100 degrees is too hot regardless) and Phoenix or Tucson. But not Prescott, since it is at 5,300 elevation within the Prescott National Forest. Feel the cool summer nights and escape the heat of the desert!!!

Don't forget to come during the fall and winter, since Prescott is a year round destination with four distinct seasons, but with temperate temperatures in both the winter and summer. Some annual seasonal events to remember are as follows:

In April the annual world famous amateur and pro Whiskey Row Off Road Mountain Bike Race

During the first week of July the Oldest Rodeo in North America and Fourth of July Parade around Downtown

For the month of October, Mount Vernon Street (one street east of the property) with its Victorian Homes are totally decked out for Halloween, and our Halloween Eve the street is shut down for the kids and Trick or Treating

Prescott is renowned as the Christmas City of Arizona. The Historic Square is totally decked out with lights and decorations. The first Friday in December is Acker Night, where the Square is closed to traffic, and all of the shops and restaurants/bars have musicians playing. Also there are two separate Christmas parades.

So what are you waiting for, come visit and explore all that Prescott and The Historic Downtown Courthouse Square has to offer.
