Enjoy our remodeled industrial farmhouse style home at the base of Mount Elden
About Velvet Gardiner
Jeff and I have been together for over 12 years now and we love to purchase a home and completely remodel it while living in it. Well, when I say we love this....it can get old when the kitchen is completely gutted and your down to one bathroom with plywood flooring. LOL. This home was built in '92 and had white carpet throughout the house (even in the bathrooms), white walls, white ceilings, marble around the fireplace, and oak trim throughout including cabinets/windows/door casings, etc. YUCK! When the previous owners walked us through the home when we were considering putting an offer on it, we knew from the beginning what we would do.... Make it look like an old refurbished industrial farmhouse. So we started gathering all of our materials from old barn wood, shiplap siding (some of which came from old buildings), old tumbled brick, etc. The brick we gathered from torn down or burnt down houses, we gathered brick from places like Winslow, AZ, and parts of New Mexico. The remodel began in February 2015. Now we want to share the beauty of our home with people, like yourself, who want to enjoy the majestic nature of Northern Arizona. We are animal lovers and encourage you to bring your pets as we have wonderful hiking trails that your pets will absolutely love. Since we live at the base of Mount Elden your entire family will enjoy the abundant hiking just at the edge of our cul-de-sac. We encourage constructive feedback after you've stayed in our home. We are always making improvements when we hear great suggestions from others. We encourage you to come and enjoy our home!
Velvet Gardiner purchased this House in 2014
Why Velvet Gardiner chose Shadow Mountain
This property, as you read above, has our sweat and tears built into our home. Even though the home is very open inside and has very high ceilings, you will feel how cozy and quaint it is when staying here. The tongue and groove ceilings along with the wood beams are gorgeous. The rod iron railings in the loft allow anyone upstairs to overlook the kitchen/dining/living rooms; making everyone feel right at home. The kitchen and dining area with plenty of barstool seating makes it comfortable to cook or bake while everyone is enjoying the comfort of being together and smelling the rich aroma of the cook at hand. We had 7 people cooking or baking in the kitchen for Christmas 2016 at one time, as well as, 38 people in our home for dinner and there was plenty of room. The outside balcony/patio areas all look upon Mount Elden where you can sit and enjoy a nice glass of wine in the evening or a cup of coffee in the morning. If you are looking for a place to have a great time and reconnect with family or friends, you found your home!

Beautiful, spacious farmhouse!
The farmhouse was perfect for our family vacation! It was close to many outdoor activities as well as being wonderfully appointed for a large number of guests. The kids loved the bunk beds as well!!
The home and amenities were just perfect! Velvet and Jeff have thought of everything, so just bring yourself. We are looking forward to coming back!
Perfect for our graduation gathering.

My family travelled from Boulder, CO to see the Grand Canyon. One of the highlights was staying at your lovely home😍�. Your beautiful home was so luxurious and had everything we needed and more! I would highly recommend staying here and we hope to return soon!
We loved our stay at the Farmhouse. It had everything! The furnishings were beautiful, the beds comfortable, and every need was available.
The teenagers loved the loft area, bunk beds and hot tub. The adults loved the stocked kitchen, the proximity to hiking trails and all the areas to relax.
