Perfect mix of charm, location & modern amenities

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough good things about the Birch House. My husband and I traveled with 3 children and my mom. From games and puzzles, bikes, sleds and personal printed travel guide to the prestocked laundry detergent, toiletries and paper goods, the owners of the Birch House have thought of everything. We will definitely be back!

As advertized - great location within easy walking to downtown Flagstaff.

  • 4 of 5

Location is great and beds were comfortable. Would have preferred a taller fence for some outside privacy and there were no directions on how to use the digital thermostat. Tried working it but had no success.

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing the Birch House for your trip to Flagstaff! We strive to make your stay extremely comfortable and provide all the high quality amenities you would typically enjoy at your own home . . . and then some! I apologize you had trouble with the Nest thermostat. There are step by step directions available through the website link indicated on the VRBO/HomeAway app which is connected to your reservation and in the black binder on the shelf at the Birch House. We will make sure to post another instruction guide adjacent to the thermostat for quick reference. As always, we are only a phone call or text away and would have been more than happy to assist you in adjusting the thermostat. The great thing about Nest is we can actually set it for you via wifi from anywhere! Thanks again for choosing the Birch House!

Cozy, immaculate, all the amenities and a perfect taste of Flagstaff

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four and dog thoroughly used up this magical home. Everything you need to stay in, yet a short walk into Flag. You can't make a rental any cleaner or well-stocked than this place. All the extras are a perfect fit for Flag - we used the yard and decks extensively. The decor has character that make you feel at home. From a frequent user of upscale VRBO rentals - it doesn't get any better than this.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Jennifer's place is perfect. 7 of us spent 5 days in Flagstaff and we were all very comfortable. The house is wonderful and interaction with our host was flawless. The house is in a very quiet neighborhood just a short walk to the historic downtown.

5 stars sll the way!
