About the property

Custom made home, surrounded by open spaces, sleeps 6

Features of this custom built home:

Breathtaking view of both Mt. Agassi and Mt. Humphreys. Feel like you can 'touch the peaks' from two living/family rooms with 'walls of glass' facing the mountains. All the bedrooms have the same view. You can gaze out and say, 'I was up there today, and it was awesome.'

South facing clear story windows and vaulted ceilings make for a cheerful, well lighted home year round. Passive solar design means quicker warm-up on winter mornings especially if using the propane central heating and/or the wood stove. Sitting around the free standing cast iron stove is always warming, and watching the flames through the glass in the doors really sets the mood.

The house is located at the upper reaches of a very large meadow, not quite in the pines. The sweeping view down to the highway and turnoff to go up the mountain is always captivating whether prairie grass or covered in snow. Note: skiers and hikers, YOU CANNOT STAY CLOSER . Wing Mountain snow play area is three miles west on the highway (180), and the south rim of the Grand Canyon is about fifty miles further. Downtown Flagstaff is about twelve minutes the other way.

This is a very quiet neighborhood (one road) with very little traffic because it's easier to get further along from another exit off the highway. There are only a few homes on acre plus lots.

You can hear the wind and lots of bird chatter. You may see herds of elk in the meadow and hear them screech at night along with an occasional coyote baying.

Water, straight from the tap, is cold, pure and great tasting. Snow melt filters through cinders from lava from the eruption back in the day. Our well goes down 150 feet to where sweet water has collected in an aquifer. Yum, take some home with you.

Walk to the pond you can see in the meadow about 1/4 mile away. It is the headwaters of the Rio de Flag and a wetlands area. Snowshoe or cross country ski the giant meadow right off the front porch. Hike out into the neighboring national forest or ride bikes for miles without going near the highway.

Order take-out (or eat in) from the Ski Lift lodge, two minutes away. They serve breakfast and good wings, pizzas, and sandwiches. They have a bar.

The front deck of our house is to take coffee on with the morning sun. The back deck, with the mountain views and spectacular sunsets, calls for a libation or two.

About Ginnie Moore

We have been renting out our house in Beaufort, S.C. for 10 years as a vacation rental as well as a condo in Ventana Canyon, Tucson, AZ we bought 4 years ago. We love the positive feedback we get from guests and we enjoy spending time there ourselves. This property in Flagstaff will be very well received.

Ginnie Moore purchased this house in 1985

Why Ginnie Moore chose Flagstaff

We bought the property in 1983, built a smaller house two years later, then did a major addition in 2008. We like being a few miles out of town with the quiet and more isolated feel that affords. Did I mention the views?

What makes this house unique

Very close to snow use or hiking areas. The restaurant and bar, Ski Lift Lodge, is only a mile away.

Awesome stay!

  • 5 of 5

It was a perfect & quiet getaway (great views, tons of space). It's really close to Flagstaff and couldn't be any closer to Snow Bowl. The house was in great shape and the owners were responsive and had instructions everywhere for you to feel comfortable in the house. I wouldn't hesitate to go back!

Perfect location for Snowbowl

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here with our teenagers for the week. There was plenty of space for us to be comfortable. This home would also be very welcoming for families with younger children. The views were beautiful, and everything was clean and welcoming. The neighborhood was calm and spacious. Our hosts made it easy to check-in and out. We will return again and recommend it to friends. Thank you for sharing your home and allowing us to have a great vacation together.

4.5 stars! Beautiful view of San Francisco Peaks!

  • 4 of 5

This home was great with plenty of room for 6 adults. There was actually room for 8 people to sleep. The futon was very comfortable in a separate section of the house from the bedroom areas. The upstairs bedroom was a bit creaky when anyone walked up there, but once everyone was settled for the night, it was't a problem. The house has two living areas, great if someone needs some time alone for homework. The back & front decks were great platforms for stargazing!! I would

Beautiful views and setting, nice house

  • 4 of 5

We spent about a week here for a family vacation with our parents and our two small children. The setting and views from the house are beautiful, it is only a few minutes into town yet it feels like you are way out in the country. The house was nice enough, typical vacation rental furnishings, everything was in good shape and worked fine. No problems dealing with the owners, no surprises etc... We hope to be back soon. Thanks!
