Flagstaff house description

Enjoy a comfortable cottage in the Flagstaff pines. Enjoy two porches and a flagstone patio - great relief from Arizona's summer heat. Cook for the bunch in a spacious kitchen, and eat at dining table for six plus counter space, or order out. Head to town for dinner - front door to any downtown chair is 20 minutes - parking and walking included.

Walk/Bike through the friendly roads in Kachina Village and the local forest roads - head a mile down to Pumphouse Wash and hike in the neighborhood, see elk in the Kachina meadow, or visit the San Francisco Peaks, Wupatki/Sunset Crater, Meteor Crater, Grand Canyon, Oak Creek Canyon and Sedona. Lots of other places to be outside. Lots of shops, restaurants, (Sushi) bars and attractions around town. Be sure to check out The Orpheum Theater and the Pinewood Ampitheater - they're great venues for live shows.

CHECK-IN
Check in after 4 pm. Check out at 11am. The door has a keypad, and there are keys in a lockbox.

That should do it! ;^)

I ask that you PLEASE keep them off the beds/furniture and out of the bedrooms - as a courtesy to those other guests who may have allergies. There's a big fenced back yard. One of the fences is only 3 ft high, so if you've got a jumper that may escape, you might want to leave them at home. Please keep the critters off the furniture. You are expected to clean up after and repair any damages caused by your dogs. I don't want the next guest finding any 'surprises'. Cats should stay at home....moreless

There's often condiments and fresh food in the fridge, and anything in the cupboards you're welcome to use if needed. Follow the rule of 'take some, leave some, there'll always be some'. Watch DVD on the 32' LCD screen or listen to the stereo. No cable/satellite to keep you on the couch but there is NetFlix and Amazon Prime. I think you'll mostly get outside and enjoy the area. Dogs are welcome if pre-approved. An extra charge and/or deposit may apply. Undeclared pets will result in forfeiture of your deposit. Dogs are to be kept off the beds/furniture and out of the bedrooms - as a courtesy to other guests who may have allergies. Cats should stay home, sorry. NO SMOKING in the house.

Out Lake Mary Road go fish at Lake Mary, drive backroads, stop for lunch or dinner at Mormon Lake, head to Happy Jack and Blue Ridge Reservoir. There is an ATV area in the Cinder Hills just northeast of town.

                              In the neighborhood walk/bike through the friendly roads in Kachina Village and the local forest roads - head to Pumphouse Wash and hike locally or there's lots of other places to be outside in the National Forests. Town has lots of shops, restaurants, (sushi) bars and attractions. Be sure to check out the Orpheum Theater and Pine Mountain Ampitheater - great venues for live shows. And Karma Sushi on the main drag downtown is phenomenal - voted Flagstaff's Best!

                              Other Activities: Rafting, jeep tours, live music. First Friday's Art Walk - enjoy downtown in the summer

                               

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 1998

                              About the owner: I work and travel around the west, and am not home much, so make my home available to friends and visitors. I also have a brick Victorian home in Colorado Springs that I'm restoring and updating to make into another vacation home, so that's keeping me busy the last year as well.

                              Why the Owner Chose Flagstaff:
                              I've owned the place since 1998. After living in Flagstaff for ten years I decided to buy this place - well built and insulated with 6' walls, double pane windows, big covered front porch and huge level back yard made it unique in the neighborhood.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              When you visit, you stay in my home - not a sterile time-share. The neighborhood is treed, safe and has quick and easy access to town and sights - whether Grand Canyon or Sedona, Indian ruins, volcanoes, live music/festivals (seems like almost every weekend).
