About Marianne Auten
Marianne is a faculty member in Counseling at a local community college and also regularly leads workshops on the topics of growth mindset, grit, and goal achievement. Brad is a Chaplain at a large retirement home after having been a Commercial Beekeeper with 1600+ beehives for 26 years. We have been married for 34 years and have two grown children who are both married, and (so far) one adorable grandson. We both enjoy traveling, particularly to places with lots of great hiking, art, history, and theater.
Marianne Auten purchased this House in 1995
Why Marianne Auten chose North Mountain Village
We have lived in Arizona all of our lives. We bought this house in 1995 because it was a great house and location to raise our kids. At that time, it had a shop built on to it that was ideal for storing the equipment associated with Brad's beekeeping business. (The beehives were mostly up north in high desert). In 2002 we sold most of the bee business due to extended drought (no rain - no flowers - no honey). Last year, as empty-nesters, we turned the shop into an apartment and we live there - a fully separate house of 1550 sq ft - and opened up our 5 bedroom house (2500 sq ft) as a vacation rental as of September 2016. We have a cabin near Flagstaff that is a very successful vacation rental - so that inspired us to do the same with our big Phoenix house. We love homesharing and helping people enjoy the great state of Arizona!
What makes this House unique
Our 5 bedroom house is very much like home, very comfortable, and has lots of space to move and gather. The beautiful, extra large kitchen is a great gathering place that is open to the family room with big screen TV and the inviting covered patio outside. The large pool has a built-in slide and spa. The grass backyard includes a fire pit. There is a large dining table that seats 10. Five bedrooms all have very comfortable beds. Since we are on a corner lot, there is plenty of room for parking. We live next door so are readily available to help with anything you need as well as provide great tips on all the best spots in Phoenix as well as all of Arizona.

The accommodations are great, the owners are awesome and the visiting dog is very friendly. The 5 of us all agreed we want to do this trip again.
We travelled as a group of 9, there was more than enough space for everyone. The house was perfect and had everything we could need. We all loved the pool, hot tub and large yard. It was great to get a visit from Yazzi!
