Updated ranch home situated atop beautiful Monte Sano Mountain. 10 minutes to downtown Huntsville, 15 minutes to USSRC. Traveling for work or recreation- this home is equipped and convenient. Moments from Land Trust and State Park hiking trails and near events and weddings held in the State Park or at Burritt. Great home base for a family, group of friends or work travelers. Live like a local on your visit to the Rocket City from this peaceful mountaintop home overlooking the city.

The space
This Monte Sano ranch home is updated throughout. Furnished with mid-century modern decor and art that gives a nod to Huntsville's long history with NASA and the State Park that surrounds the neighborhood. The home sleeps up to 6 on three comfortable beds (king, queen & twin daybed with trundle) with an efficient layout and two workspaces. Fullsize quiet laundry facilities in the laundry closet (detergent provided) and steamer and iron on site. Fiber wifi.

Whether you are here for work, recreation or vacation, we hope you share our love of Monte Sano and take time to hike, walk, run or bike in this quiet, safe neighborhood during your stay. You are less than 1/2 mile from Land Trust's South Monte Sano Trailhead, and 1/2 mile from the neighborhood's unmarked trail access to the Natural Well. Main entrance to Alabama's top-rated Monte Sano State Park's is about a mile away. If you come to Monte Sano for one of the annual mountain bike events, local trail runs, road races or the grueling Monte Sano Mountain Mist 50K, let this be your homebase for the event!

We aim for you to feel at home. All short term stays are furnished with coffee/tea supplies and light snacks and water for your first day's arrival along with basic cooking essentials in the fully equipped kitchen.

The home has a shaded and scenic backyard with outdoor seating, firepit and hammock available for guest use. Blueberry bushes in season. Mature trees, Spring flowers and native azaleas and hydrangea. You are likely to spot deer, foxes, rabbits, birds and hear crickets and peepers depending on the time of year. Monte Sano means "mountain of health". You'll enjoy the fresh air, yet you're only ten minutes from downtown restaurants, shopping, bars, parks, breweries, Mars Music Hall, Probst Arena, VBCC Concert Hall and the entertainment district. Close to both Huntsville and Madison sports complexes and stadiums. Local food delivery to the house by GrubSouth, Door Dash, SteakOut, pizza chains etc.

At 1600 feet, Monte Sano is 7-10 degrees cooler in the summer and boasts beautiful Fall foliage. Residents call the scenic drive down Bankhead the "backside" that drops you into Five Points and downtown. The drive down the "frontside" takes you past Huntsville Hospital and towards Lowe Mill Arts & Entertainment, Campus 805, Stovehouse, Huntsville Botanical Garden and USSRC off I-565. Robert Trent Jones Golf Course is 15 minutes away as is Hays Nature Preserve and the Flint River.

ATT Fiber wifi is included and the TV has a digital antenna and streaming services. Please message host BEFORE booking if you are interested in traveling with your pet (to see if pet is a fit for home's cleaning schedule and to agree to a pet cleaning fee, no cats due to allergies) or for stays longer than 7 days.

Guest access
You will have the whole house to yourself! Self check-in instructions will be provided.

Other things to note
This home has a shared driveway. Guests must park in designated concrete and gravel spots at rear of house, parking cars parallel to rear of the home. Must have host approval if you will have more than two cars. Driveway and Turnaround MUST BE KEPT CLEAR AT ALL TIMES!

Huntsville, Alabama, United States

Monte Sano is a friendly residential neighborhood on the western side of the mountain. Stay in nature surrounded by a State Park close to all Huntsville has to offer. Take a walk to the Little Green Store across from the fire station and adjacent to the Community Garden for a peek at a unique mountaintop art gallery, often features local artists on Thursday evenings.
