It's a special, peaceful place. (may hear children playing next door during the summer). Great location in West Prescott- stores and restaurants, as well as national forest trails nearby, nearby. Mellow traffic. Town square 2 mi, Fry's 1 mi., Whole Foods & Deli 1.5mi. , Thumb Butte & national forest trails 2mi., Granite Dells (20min.) Garchen Buddhist Institute (45min). Surrounded by national forest in 3 directions. Approx. 2 hrs to Sedona, Flagstaff, or Phoenix, 2.5 hrs. to Grand Canyon. We are off the beaten track and known for the friendliness, slower pace of our community, and summer fairs, music, and activities in the town square.
I feel blessed to have such a special home in an amazing place and love to share it, when possible. Too many variables at times to just use the airbnb calender. Please email to check your dates.
Although most of the time I check emails within 24 hr. , I'm an outdoor enthusiast and teacher, so may be away from internet. Airbnb says the host declined, if we don't respond within 24 hr. I will respond with a note if I decline or accept.
I enjoy hosting and am happy to answer your questions and do my best to meet your particular needs or requests. Upon arrival, you will find clear house notes to simplify your stay, and a folder with maps and info on the area.
Interaction with Guests
Although normally I am available for arrival, I'm away now until September 10th. The house is simple to use and my house info sheet is thorough. I will be available by cell phone. My housekeeper lives closeby and will also be on call if needed. I'm available for any questions that arise before, during, or after your stay.
I love that: our neighborhood is nestled in the boulders and pines, that I live on a deadend street with three neighboring houses- ALL my neighbors are friendly and will help if needed, close to downtown and national forest...and more... The homes are eclectic- a bit of everything.
I haven't used the public transit- I doubt that it is very convenient. I often ride my bicycle or walk. Traffic is mellow most of the time for driving.
Other Things to Note
Guests often say they feel renewed and rested after staying here. Artists and writers feel at home. I've practiced meditation and yoga here for 15 years. No animals have ever lived here. Only natural cleaning products, etc. are used.
