Set amid the granite boulders above historic Prescott, this is a high country sanctuary that is custom designed for rest and relaxation; situated in Yavapai County, in central Arizona, two hours north of Phoenix, an hour's drive from scenic Sedona, and an hour and a half from the Grand Canyon, and Flagstaff, our home is perfectly located for those who wish to explore our beautiful state. With its panoramic countryside views and yet its close proximity to downtown Prescott, our comfortable lodgings provide a blend of rural and urban characteristics, the best of both worlds, if you like, and as such could be considered a great home-away-from-home base from which to venture out on hiking expeditions, not only around local neighborhoods, but also to nearby Thumb Butte and Granite Mountain, or around the Granite Dells, its adjacent lakes, or along the invigorating Peavine Trail.
All in all, our home is a retreat, a place to recuperate from the rigors of the "daily grind", where one can savor some peace and quiet, reclining on our south facing deck, absorbing some fresh mountain air, surrounded by resident wildlife, in an environment that boasts some of the most picturesque scenery in the world.
Please feel free to contact us either if you would like to rent a bedroom, or if you would be interested in renting the whole house, which might conceivably be available on occasions.
Guests will have use of their own living room area in which there is a 32'' flat screen TV with multiple channels available within the Top 250 satellite programming package provided by DISH network, via a Joey, a DVD player, and a CD player with amplifier and speakers. A gas grill is available to guests for barbecuing on the deck.

This was the PERFECT location for our stay over the Independence Day weekend! We enjoyed peaceful seclusion yet had convenient access to nearby attractions and festivities. These wonderful hosts were altogether friendly and accommodating. They really went above and beyond in making us feel welcomed and comfortable in their home. The elevated deck was a real selling point. We couldn't have asked for a better vantage point from which to view the amazing sunset and night sky. We will absolutely check here first when making future plans to visit the area. Thank you Tim'N'Ronda!!!
