About Caroline McCormick
Your hosts, Caroline and Charles, recently purchased this old homestead. Charles is a retired Natural Sciences teacher. He taught high school Chemistry, Physics, and Biology. His family has been in Arizona four generations. When Charles was a small boy, his family moved to Bisbee, AZ where he graduated high school. Caroline came to Arizona in 1985 to work at Grand Canyon National Park and subsequently moved to Flagstaff, AZ and worked at Sunset Crater National Monument and Walnut Canyon National Monument. It was at Walnut Canyon that Charles and Caroline first met while they were employed as seasonal Park Rangers.
Caroline McCormick purchased this Guest house/pension in 2018
Why Caroline McCormick chose Saint David
This former ranch homestead on ten acres, has unique charm for the area. The mature Arizona Cypress, Mesquite and pine trees provide lots of shade. Anecdotal history and county records show it was first settled in 1915 and like most ranch houses it has been added to and remodeled as the family needs changed. The mature fruit and pecan trees along with ornamental flowers and garden plots are hard to find in this area and to us are a real bonus. There are 41 flower beds incorporated into the landscaping. We love the panoramic views which are enhanced each night with beautiful sunsets. We wanted a place where we could raise a garden. In addition to the basic vegetables, Charles has started a fruit orchard. We also wanted a property where we could ride and train our horses. Caroline occasionally shows her horses in ranch horse competitions. There is currently a 120' x 240' arena with good sandy footing and a natural trail obstacle course on the property. We plan to add a round-pen and improved bridle trail, and shades/corrals for more horses. Since we recently purchased the property you will see subtle changes made to the property as we go about making these improvements.
What makes this Guest house/pension unique
Location, Mature Shade Trees, Horse Facilities, Guest House. You will find this rural setting easy to access because we are right off of a paved road and AZ Highway 80. If you are traveling with horses and need a safe place to stop over, the ranch can accommadate you and your horses. Be sure to call ahead so we can prepare the corrals for your horses*. *We expect you to provide current negative Coggins test and Health Certificate (30 days or less) for each horse.
