Property description

Welcome to the true labor of love of a custom home designer/builder. This Arts and Crafts inspired home has been our personal residence for 30 years. The home's exterior is Japanese/Southwest inspired, set in a lush oasis of mature landscaping and green lawns. The handcrafted interior is all about details, ranging from custom wood trim and inlays to local colored, sand plastered walls. The ambiance of this home is one of warmth, beauty, serenity, and comfort.

Located at the end of the road in rural Jack's Canyon, the Pine Valley neighborhood is surrounded on three sides by scenic cliffs on public land. Great hiking begins just minutes from the front door. In this tranquility, we see an abundance of local wildlife, including javalina, quail, and even the occasional bobcat. We are also just a few minutes away from the gourmet restaurants, spas, galleries, and bike rentals of the Village of Oak Creek.

$275 per night is for 2 persons only. Additional persons $35 each per night
