Cozy House in Town Near Trails

House - Private room · Shoup Street, Prescott, AZ 86305, United States

Treat yourself to a comfy getaway in our lovely home! Enjoy our organic garden (eat fresh greens!) and simplify your life with our green lifestyle. We'll point you downtown, 2 miles away, for great restaurants and galleries too.

The Space

This 1910 late victorian home sits at the western side of Prescott, in a relaxed neighborhood. 2 miles to downtown but away from the noise, this house is a short walk from 6 good restaurants (including the historic Dry Gulch Steakhouse at the end of our street), several bars, and shopping. Prescott's newest microbrewery, The Black Hole (opening April 2014), is located 2 blocks away. We are within walking distance of the rodeo grounds, home of the Worlds Oldest Rodeo, and about 1.5 miles from Prescott College.

Anticipate a bit of history here in Prescott, and don't be surprised at the unique feel of our home. Our kids grew up here so the guest rooms still hold some of their items (e.g. a Star Wars poster, framed gymnastic medals) and the feel of a well loved house.

A short drive will get you to the National Forest, Thumb Butte, and Granite Mountain. The newly constructed Centennial Trail circles Prescott, and is accessed at the end of the street, beckoning mountain bikers, hikers, or anyone who wants to take a stroll in the boulders. Short hike to petroglyphs!

The common space living room and dining room, have couches, comfy chairs, large dining table, TV and music, all under 10 foot ceilings and surrounded by original woodwork.

The guest room is clean and well appointed, with a very comfortable double bed. Shared full bath and powder room are next to the guest room.

Lots of space to park. Really good coffee and tea are served every morning, and a yummy light breakfast is included on the weekend if requested.

Guest Access

Guests may use the kitchen for cooking and storing yummies - there is a cupboard space and a refrigerated bin for guests. The back patio and porch are great hang-out spots. Both bathrooms are shared.

Interaction with Guests

We love being hosts and enjoy taking time to chat with our guests. We are here when guests arrive as well as most mornings and evening, and enjoy sharing coffee and conversation. We are happy to help customize your stay with suggestions for dining too.

The Neighborhood

Our neighborhood is quiet and safe. We all know and look out for each other, making this a very special street. It is a dead end road, so very little traffic.

Getting around

A short drive will get you to downtown, or out of town. Being on the edge of town, but near a natural grocery store as well as Walmart and Starbucks, makes this a good location for most visitors.

Other Things to Note

We can not accept guest doggies as we already have 2 dogs and a cat. To ensure a peaceful experience for everyone, its best for us if we don't add another doggie to the mix. Sorry!

  • Maggie and Barnabas were delightful hosts. My request was very last minute and Maggie was spot on in replying. Their home was warm and inviting...as described and more! 4 leggeds were sweet and well mannered. I slept wonderfully. Would definitely stay with them again.

  • I loved staying with Maggie and Barnabas! Their house is very cozy and they made me feel right at home. I appreciated the laid back atmosphere, eco-friendly mindset, and interesting conversation. They have adorable pets who are friendly and well-behaved. Looking forward to staying with them again!

  • Very cozy and quaint. Most of all I felt very safe in this neighborhood as a woman travelling by myself. The pets are great, very sweet but not intrusive. . though the cat is quite talkative : )

  • On a rainy day in the Prescott Valley, Maggie and her husband Barnabas' Cozy House was a sweet homecoming at the end of a long roadtrip. Their home is imbued with a great family atmosphere, with furry little friends to pet, photography and great books for those of us who love to read, look and learn; we shared inspiring conversations over coffee and shared a homemade breakfast made from the fruits of their garden. It was a great experience. Thanks a mil!

  • We had a short, overnight stay inPrescott. I wish we could have stayed longer. Barnabas, Maggie's husband, was a great host - giving us restaurant tips, travel notes, and answered questions about his raised-bed garden. In addition to a beautiful cottage-type house, a cat and two great dogs were also welcoming. Plus, there was some really cool Arizona-room furniture.

    While Maggie had to be out of town, she was still available on the phone to answer any questions for us before we arrived. Barnabas, though, was a thoroughly gracious and knowledgeable host, who, by the way, makes the best coffee this side of the equator! No, really.

    June 2013
  • Maggie and Barnabas made us feel at home and were very easy to be around. The stay was relaxing and their pets are great as well.

About
My husband Barnabas and I love being air bnb hosts! We are outdoorsy and active, enjoy hiking, gardening, and hanging out together. Our two children are both in college but we love it when they come home for a break. I am a middle school science teacher and geologist, and my husband is a landscape architect/designer who runs his own small business in his beautiful studio at the back of our property. We like to read, eat healthy, take walks, ride our bikes, listen to music, watch movies and sports, and visit with friends and family. We love to travel to the mountains, the beach, go overseas or to see family throughout the US. We are social, and outgoing, but also enjoy our downtime. We have 2 dogs, a cat, and lovebirds, so there is always something going on. We use solar panels, collect rainwater for our irrigation, compost, and recycle with enthusiasm. We hope to limit the negative impacts our lives might have to our environment, and we do our homework on environmental issues so our choices are based on good information. We are happy to loan you a mountain bike (or unicycle!) to ride on the trails, or just go around town with. Being close to trails allows our guests to take nice hikes. We like to get to know our guests, and are happy to hang out in the evenings with a beer or cup of tea and talk if you like conversation. We have always had an open door for friends and family, so its easy to be Airbnb hosts. I hope you come and enjoy our hospitality.
