A full two page story of the 81 and 86 year old Riordan brothers returning to their childhood home after it was buried for over 60 years was featured in the November's 2014 issue of Arizona Highways magazine. That story is on the link below "Owners Info" near the bottom of this page.
As a fifth generation general contractor and carpenter, I bought the house with the intent to restore to it's original state to preserve a unique piece of Jerome and Arizona history.

Easy access to down town. Property is very historical. Shower is nice and hot.
We stayed with a group of girlfriends for a short weekend at the Riordan House. We enjoyed the adventuresome ride up to the top of the hill to discover the amazing historic property! The views were second to none with ample patio seating for many! The interior of the home was filled with antiques, which were enjoyed by all. Our stay was very comfortable and Glenn ensured we were perfectly set up. We want to go again and maybe even bring our husbands next time. As a first time VRBO user, the entire experience was exceptional!
Wonderful stay. Walk to everything in Jerome, finish the day with a view that can't be beat.
My daughter and I had a great time, love the house. Had small problem when we first got here, but Glenn took care of it. Will return. Carol & Kristy
We enjoyed our stay in the John Riordan House very much. The owner Glenn was very easy to work with. He sent very specific instructions prior to our stay. The property was exactly as described. We also enjoyed reading all of the historical information about the home during our stay. Lastly the view was spectacular and our children enjoyed using the swing.
In town for Ashbrook at the Spirit Room. The Riordan house is everything as advertised. Amazing views, great 5 min walk to the city center and the home was charming. Only there 1 night but plan on being back for another on our next rendezvous to Jerome. Owner was great to deal with.
Jerome is a nationally Certified former Ghost and Historic town. The John Riordan House is easy walking distance to the center of town.
