About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 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. Also review The Townhouse, VRBO # 1012557, which is 2 bedrooms and one and a half baths.

The Terrace was professionally decorated with a romantic French theme in mind. 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), one full bath/shower, 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 Townhouse is a sister property, view VRBO # 1012557 for details, and The Cottage, view VRBO # 442389, is a larger rental with approximately 1,550 square feet.

About Larry Schmidt

I moved to the Prescott area in 2007, and after 10 years, I consider myself a true Prescottonian and ambassador of Prescott. Although I am getting closer to retirement age, I still am employed in sales management, with a fantastic company in Minneapolis, which enables me to work out of the house.

I got into the renting of VRBO properties in 2011, when my first property was only the 50th listing in Prescott, where in today's world there is over 200 listings. Since I travel a lot myself due to my job, I have used VRBO extensively. I look for clean, well managed properties that are close to local activities with a homey feel, as opposed to the clinical feel of a hotel chain. I strive to run and present a VRBO experience that is consistent with what I would be looking for.

Larry Schmidt purchased this bungalow in 2012

Why Larry Schmidt chose Prescott

I purchased this property due to its fantastic location to the downtown historic courthouse square. The property has dedicated concrete paved parking perpendicular to the street, in the front, which is very unique for downtown, and the street appeal is outstanding.

The property sits in the historic residential neighborhood, so although it is close to downtown it is quiet.

Also as a personal investment, with the Great Recession, I like many others was disturbed by my lack of ability to avoid the huge crash in my 401K investments. With this property and marketing under VRBO/HomeAway, I can control my own investment, and I enjoy the interaction with my guests. The measure of success is the tremendous amount of repeat business my properties generate, and the friendships that I have made along the way.

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.

Ideal place for us

  • 5 of 5

Great location, convenient, easy walk to central square yet quiet. Larry did everything possible and then some to make sure our stay was pleasant and trouble free. He has a very nice write up on the logistics of the property plus info about area restaurants & an informative and entertaining write up on Prescott from past issue of Arizona Highways magazine. It's clear he loves Prescott and wants all those who visit to have an enjoyable experience, which we certainly did.

We've rented and enjoyed all of Larry's Union Street properties

  • 5 of 5

This review is long overdue: Over the years, we have rented the cottage, the townhouse, and the terrace. They are all different and very thoughtfully cared for. The cottage is the premier property, and if available I'd go for the cottage. Over the past year or so we lived in the townhouse for about 6 weeks, and the terrace for more than 3 months. You may be tempted to pass on the terrace since it has only a balcony and not a fenced year, but the view at sunset over to Thumb Butte was spectacular. We also saw all the hummingbirds coming in to roost in the big trees out front at dusk. Memorable! Larry upgrades his properties regularly with new carpet, mattresses, etc. so things are very clean and neat and comfy. I think you will be very happy renting any of these properties. But do remember this is a historic home, and they all have their little quirks like stairs and a low ceiling here or there. I like character in houses, so enjoyed these quirks a lot.

Owner's Response: Hilary & Neal I appreciate your very kind words, and I am sorry that you will no longer be renting, BUT I am extremely happy that you have made Prescott your NEW PERMANENT HOME!!! You two are great people, and Susan and I look forward to a long relationship as your friends. Also, let's play some golf this summer. Sincerely Larry

Very Comfortable Townhouse ideally situated within easy walk to town square

  • 5 of 5

This review is for the 2-story Townhouse (Terrace is partially above both Townhouse and adjacent rental The Cottage).

First, the corner situation couldn't be better, as the living room looks out onto 2 of Prescott's picturesque tree-lined streets. With short walk to town square and its many excellent non-chain restaurants we were set for a lazy long week-end, with no car - it stayed conveniently parked in front of the house.

Our stay was a winter stay, and the house stayed nice and toasty all weekend. As advertised, TV had extended cable and Netflix with conformable seating to enjoy it from. Kitchen was well equipped for any meal preparation, although our actual cooking was limited a single cooked breakfast. The 2 bedrooms upstairs were compact and the beds were very conformable. The quirky upstairs room arrangement with a Jack and Jill bathroom worked well to maximize the limited space available for the bedrooms themselves.

Finally, we must thank Larry, the owner. He was without doubt one of the best hosts. When he learned that we had a problem just before we were due to stay, he offered a solution, without us even asking (I would say more but don't want to set any potentially unrealistic expectations from Larry for future). He really made our weekend.

Thanks Larry.

Owner's Response: I am very glad that you had a great stay in Prescott during the Christmas Holidays. Prescott is definitely the Christmas City of Arizona with all of the downtown decorations and virtually all of the trees completely lit on the historic downtown square. It was nice to accommodate your unexpected issue, since due to a slower rental activity for the first week of January, I was able to accommodate you. Hope to see again in the near future.

Very nice property

  • 5 of 5

With 3 adults and 2 children we had plenty of room. The upstairs apartment in which we stayed was very clean and well laid out--that is, the bedrooms are away from the living room so some people can sleep while others visit. We never heard any noise from the downstairs unit. The kitchen was fairly well appointed though we didn't cook much while there except for breakfast. There are too many good restaurants around to want to spend my time cooking. It's within easy walking distance to town center. We plan on staying here again during the summer except for a longer period of time.

Great place to relax with family!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Townhouse over the Christmas holiday. We had a blizzard which limited our outdoor activity but this place is very cozy and clean, and we throughly enjoyed out stay with family here. The Townhouse is very bright and has a little outdoor area that is fenced which is helpful when you have a dog. The neighborhood is very cute with many historic homes. We have stayed here before and will continue to come back. Great time!

Owner's Response: Mary This Christmas Holiday season was definitely a winter to remember due to the approximately 8 inches of snow that Prescott received on Christmas Eve!! The last few years have been mild as it relates to snow, but I think this winter Prescott and the surrounding area will be receiving so much more snow to make up for our loss in the last 3 years! There is so much to do during Christmas in Prescott, since Prescott has been officially designated the Christmas City of Arizona, and it is fun to frequent many of our fine locally owned restaurants in the city during this period. I am looking forward to seeing you again in the early spring. Sincerely Larry Schmidt Owner

Cute convenient place close to downtown

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in the terrace, and we have enjoyed both stays. The owner (Larry) is easy to deal with and ensures that your stay is enjoyable. He is quick to address any issues or questions you may have during your stay. The terrace is clean and has new carpet, the kitchen has the basic necessities to prepare simple meals and the beds are comfortable. We will definitely stay here as long as it or one of the other units are available

Owner's Response: Darren It was nice to have you and your wife stay in The Townhouse again, and to be here when your long time friends, the Gaddys, were staying in The Terrace as well. You continue to select the time period when one of Prescott's signature events occurs, which is Acker Night on the second Friday of each December/Holiday period. On Acker Night, Prescott presents itself like a Norman Rockwell painting, when all the stores, saloons, art galleries and restaurants are not only decorated for the holidays, but host a local musician and serving hot cider and cookies. I hope you and the Gaddys will visit Prescott in the summer and stay at both The Townhouse and The Terrace. Prescott summers are so enjoyable and the weather is very comfortable. Otherwise I look forward to seeing you during next year's Christmas Holidays!! Sincerely Larry Schmidt Owner

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.
