Overview

About the property

Accurately Historically Restored With Functioning Antiques and Fantastic Views

Step back into 1898 with all the comforts of modern day conveniences. 2 bedroom, one bath, with 1200 square feet of wood deck and flagstone patio overlooking the center of the Town of Jerome and the entire Verde Valley. Easy (vertical) walking distance to the center of town shops, wineries, restaurants. Great year round weather and peaceful mountain air evenings. Stay in a house that is 118 years old buried in mud and abandoned for 60 years.

The John Riordan House is the highest rentable space available in Jerome. It is located directly above the center of town with fantastic views of the tourists and valley below. Please perform an internet search for much more complete information and interesting history on 'The John Riordan House, Jerome.'

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.

About Glenn Odegard

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.

Pictured along with myself (on right) is Neil Riordan(on left). Neil, now age 81 along with his brother John , now aged 86, who grew up in this house from 1931 until 1953. Click on the second link below to read the 2 page article in ARIZONA HIGHWAYS MAGAZINE about the families life and their escape when the mudslide struck the house while living inside.

Glenn Odegard purchased this house in 2012

Adventure, Historic, Amazing Views!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Thumbs Up!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

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.
