Experience a magical mountain getaway in one of the most beautifully-decorated and spacious vacation rentals in Flagstaff! The property is perfect for a romatic escape for two, or a memorable family vacation. We have more 5-star reviews than any other vacation rental home in Flagstaff so you won't be disappointed. And, we are only 1 hour from the Grand Canyon!
This 3,000 sf, 4 br 3 ½ bath single-level home on 2.5 acres is located in north Flagstaff. Built in 2006, the Ranch has a perfect, unobstructed view of the San Francisco Peaks out the large front picture window, and the property backs up to National Forest. Enjoy a more secluded feel here at Windy View Ranch, which unlike many other rentals on the market is not located in a densely-populated neighborhood with home after home next to each other. The home is immaculate with decorator furnishings, for those who are accustomed to and appreciate beautiful décor.
The home's courtyard which faces the forest is the perfect spot to relax and read a novel, share a great bottle of wine, play with the children, enjoy a cup of morning coffee, or host a family cookout with the available propane BBQ grill.
As you enter the massive great room, soaring windows showcase the forest on one side and the San Francisco Peaks directly out the front patio doors. Ceiling fans in the 25' ceiling cool the room while fixed seating for 8 people in the family room is positioned to take advantage of the great views, the stone-front gas fireplace, and the 42” plasma TV. Watch your favorite shows on High-Definition DirecTV on the big screen, featuring a state of the art Bose sound system and a DVD player.
The perfect gathering spot for special family meals, a large table adjacent to the great room comfortably seats 10 people. Adjacent to the dining area is the beautiful kitchen with granite counter tops, knotty alder cabinets and stainless steel appliances - the windows above the sink offer a perfect view of the Peaks!
On the north side of the home, you’ll find the Master Bedroom Suite featuring perfect Peak views to the West, a massive pine KING-sized bed, and a large comfy sofa. The beautiful master bath has dual sinks, a large soaking spa tub with water jets, a large tile shower and a huge master closet.
With this home that features 4 bedrooms and a total of 2 KING and 2 QUEEN beds, you don’t have to rely on sofa sleepers, futons or trundles; you will enjoy sweet mountain dreams in full comfort! Also on the north side of the house is the second master suite, the Courtyard Bedroom. This next-largest bedroom has a QUEEN-sized bed, it’s own private bath with tub and shower, five windows looking out on the forest, an antique sofa, a color TV with its’ own receiver box, and a private entrance which opens onto the home’s back courtyard.
Also located in the Courtyard Room is an antique white desk with a hardwired Internet hookup, and the wireless router that provides wireless Internet access throughout the rest of the home. A doggie door in this room leads to a 10' x 10' securely-fenced dog run, which can also open up into a 1-acre fenced (5' high) yard.
On the opposite (south) side of the house, you’ll find two more large bedrooms which share a hall bathroom. The Forest Bedroom features a large, pine 4-poster KING-sized bed and a lovely view of the forest. Next door, the Mountain Bedroom’s QUEEN-sized bed and 3 windows with perfect views of the Peaks offer a lovely retreat; an oversize stuffed reading chair is nestled below the window. The shared bathroom in the hallway features double sinks, a tub and a shower, with beautiful tile floors and knotty alder cabinets. If additional sleeping accommodations are needed, two twin-size 6" plush memory foam folding mattresses, with bedding, are stored in the Mountain Bedroom and Forest Bedroom closets. While great for kids, they are HEAVEN to sleep on and will comfortably sleep most adults as well.
OTHER HOME FEATURES:
For your convenience, the home offers a laundry room with a full-sized washer and dryer – the laundry room leads to the 3-car garage, with one large space left available for parking your own vehicle. Just outside the garage is plenty of parking for additional vehicles.
Of course, the best part of Flagstaff is the great outdoors! Children, pets and families will love spending time in our large, acre-sized, wrap-around fenced yard. In the evenings, watch for elk who often stroll past the property near the forest as they come for a drink at our elk watering tank located just outside our back fence. Bring your ATVs, mountain bikes or dirt bikes; we are only 2 short miles to the Cinder Hills recreation area where miles and miles of dirt track await your exploration. Or, grab a backpack, plenty of water and hike for miles through the forest as the wind whistles through the trees.
Windy View Ranch also serves as the perfect “base camp” for exploring all the wonders of northern Arizona – from skiing at Snowbowl, to discovering mystical Sedona, to taking a ride to the Grand Canyon or Lake Powell, we’re located in the center of all the action. Or, simply drive 10 short miles into the heart of downtown Flagstaff where plenty of shopping, dining and entertainment choices await your arrival.
Although Windy View Ranch is pet-friendly, if you're looking for a pet-free weekend and are traveling from the greater Phoenix area, consider sending your pet on vacation at Second Home Pet Resort (602-997-6600)! This beautiful pet resort offers a 10% discount to customers of Windy View Ranch during non-major holidays - be sure to tell them you are referred by us!

About the owner: We live in Phoenix, Arizona; our two children are grown, and we share our home with two dogs. In 2006, after having enjoyed a summer home in Sedona for 3 years, we began looking for something larger (and with cooler temperatures) in Flagstaff. We love to travel - here is a picture of us in Santorini, Greece. We hope you experience the magic of Windy View Ranch as much as we do; you'll enjoy a feeling of peace and relaxation as you escape the stresses of everyday life and enjoy the beautiful surroundings that make Flagstaff so special...
Why the Owner Chose Flagstaff, AZ, USA:
Flagstaff is a short 2-hour drive from Phoenix, but the temperatures are typically 25 to 35 degrees cooler, making this the perfect mountain getaway! Flagstaff is a beautiful area with mountains, forests and wildlife, yet the city is large enough to have the shopping, dining and amenities that you'd find in a larger urban environment. It's the best of both worlds!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Secluded, rural environment; miles and miles of national forest right out the back door; the most perfect, unobstructed view of the San Francisco Peaks mountain range; yet only a 10-minute drive to the grocery store. The best of ALL worlds!
