There is a firepit, inside the fenced area, at the corner of the grassy yard if you want to enjoy the crisp clear stars at night "out in the woods" with no neighbors behind you. Head south - and down- out the backyard, through the trees, further down the hill to the schoolyards, playgrounds, ballfields and b-ball hoops and sport-courts, all buffered by 60-foot pine trees and Aspens.

Eldon, no driving!) or just go 5 minutes west on bikes and you are in HUGE Buffalo (city) park with it's own trails. ALL RIGHT OUT THE DRIVEWAY!

About Janet

Both of us are from the midwest and fell in love with all Flagstaff has to offer. Our kids went to NAU and ASU so we know what the town offers - we are outdoors people, love Wupatki, Walnut Canyon, Lake Mary, putzing around downtown, Nordic cross country, sledding with the kids. Up here a week in the spring/summer /fall, you should do a day trip to Grand Canyon and to Lake Powell. After 31 years traveling AZ, Flagstaff is the perfect getaway spot for us, not a lot of people but plenty to do. Or just read on the back porch, have a glass of wine and listen to the wind in the trees!

Janet purchased this house in 2004

Why Janet chose Shadow Mountain

We always experience a sense of true relaxation and love the fresh air and pines. This is the forest and mountains in the middle of town. Very chill, kickback and lazy/cozy place to get away. Read "about you" and you'll get it....

What makes this house unique

On our South-side backyard, we buffer the National Forest, and below that is a grade school and junior high with playgrounds and ball fields well below us to the South. Our lot is nearly twice the size of others around us and very private and relaxing, with 2-mile views off the back deck and kitchen. Front living room has large windows that view Mt. Eldon, which is immediately to our North. And yet - this place is right in the middle of the city of Flagstaff. You want to get a gourmet meal, take in a movie or a seasonal event, you come and go in less than 20 minutes!

Loved this beautiful home!

I stayed in this beautiful house with my 4 sisters - all in our 60s. It is roomy, clean and comfortable. Close to shopping and sightseeing. We would love to stay here again!

Amazing house, fantastic owners, and great location with wonderful views.

  • 5 of 5

Our children and grandchildren stayed at Janet and Link's lovely home here in Flagstaff for Thanksgiving week and it was a perfect fit. The house is very spacious and accommodated all eight of them nicely. Having an unusually warm Thanksgiving week this year, they were able to enjoy the deck with its great view and even a little football in the back yard on Thanksgiving Day. The house is close to ours so it made visiting easy. As our twelve year old granddaughter said "This is one of the best vacation houses that I have been at and I enjoyed the fun, warm feel of the house" All agreed with her and will be back.

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying here during our kids' Spring Break last week. The house was very clean, well maintained, had plenty of space to accommodate our whole family and served as the perfect "home base" for our day-trips to Bearizona and the Grand Canyon. We felt right at home and appreciated the owners' efforts to help make our stay enjoyable. We would definitely stay here again next time we visit Flagstaff!

Perfect Snowbowl Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent the holiday weekend here and got in some time on the slopes. The house was perfect for our large family, loved having the playground nearby for little kids. Well stocked kitchen, plenty of extra bedding, spacious living area. Location was perfect for day trips to snowbowl and sledding areas. Owners were very easy to communicate with and made sure we had everything we needed. Will definitely be back!
