About Heather Heselton

My wife and I have two daughters 11 and 9 and live in Marin County, CA. We lived in Arizona for nearly 15 years primarily in Scottsdale. We have two dogs and enjoy the outdoors when possible.

Heather Heselton purchased this house in 2004

Why Heather Heselton chose Baderville

The decision to buy this property was sudden. We had looked for several weeks and could not find properties that quite matched our criteria. Our goal was to be on some land and have something that provided a break from the larger Phoenix area and the accompanying hot weather. I came upon the property on a solo trip to Flag and stood on the deck looking at the San Francisco Peaks and a stunning rainbow after a late summer rain. I called my wife and told her that I found the house we've been wanting. As a second home, we wanted to be able for the our kids to enjoy the outdoors and learn about nature and breathe clean air. We also wanted a place for our extended family and friends to visit without feeling that they were imposing. In short - we wanted everything this home had to offer.

What makes this house unique

There is not many things as satisfying to me as grilling at the outside kitchen looking at the SF Peaks. A glass of wine, the clean air, and the quiet solitude does wonders for my soul. I have gotten great satisfaction taking my young daughters on a hike to collect pine cones and look for 'treasures' on the easy hiking trail behind the house. We have had great times with our extended families including a 50 person family reunion this past summer. Everyone who visits is relaxed and loves staying at this property due to the space and privacy. The convenience to the Ski Resort is just an added plus. After skiing, it's great to go into the jacuzzi, look at the Peaks, relax and reflect on the day.

Family-friendly home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The property owner is very responsive and the cabin was fully equipped. The property is only 10 minutes out from town. Well worth the cost.

Gorgeous Property with Tons of Space

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying here while visiting Flagstaff. The home was warm and comfy with lots of space for everyone. We enjoyed the hot tub and outdoor fireplace as well as the grill. The homeowner was very nice and was happy to answer my questions as a first-time renter. Would love to stay here again. This home was also equipped for children which was a definite plus! Highly recommend a stay here especially if you have a large family or group.

Great place to stay and wonderful view.

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable for our stay with family and friends. Spectacular view of the San Francisco Peaks. The extra bedroom and bath along with the loft in the garage was perfect for our daughters wedding. Close proximity to Snow Bowl was nice. Quiet at night and the elk bugling was awesome. Unfortunately did not get to fully enjoy all the comforts like the fireplace and hot tub as we were just too busy. Maybe another time. The owner Heather was very easy to work with and extremely accommodating to all our questions prior to our arrival.
