Right next to the National Forest, our vacation home has 2 plus bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. The master suite has a king size bed, full bathroom and oversized dressing room. The second bedroom has a queen bed and closet. A full, gourmet cook's kitchen is stocked with appliances, cookware, cook books, oven and range, warming drawer, combination convection and microwave oven, side by side refrigerator and dishwasher. Granite tile countertops and a special maple baking top make this a great place for cooking up special meals. The living room has vaulted ceilings, tile floors and a delightful pellet stove to keep you warm in the cold days of winter. There is a queen pull out sleeper in the living room for extra guests.
The house sits on an acre of property, not including the thousands of acres of adjacent public forest lands. In the backyard there is a covered rustic gazebo and a propane grill. Mountainaire is a quiet, peaceful village just south of Flagstaff and the surroundings reflect its rural, eclectic ambiance. There's room for horse trailers and their occupants too. Elk are often visitors in the front meadows and in the woods behind us. Good birdwatching and wildlife viewing abound. Trails for mountain biking, hiking, dog walking, atving, and horse back riding go right from the property line.
Children love the huge yard for exploring nature, playing games and just being children. There are trails for hiking, walking, mountain biking and even cross country skiing or snowshoeing when the conditions are good, that start right in the back yard. Down the road is the Mountainaire Tavern and the Mountainaire Country Store that stocks grocery basics. For wine lovers the Cork Screw Wine bar is next door at the Abineau Lodge where the owners of the home and the Lodge reside too. Some people say that in Mountainaire, everyone and their dog owns a dog! So pet owners are welcome here as well. What a great spot to bring your pup. Play fetch in the front yard or go for a run or a walk in the woods. You’ll see plenty of other people doing the same.
In addition to vacations, the home is available for small retreats, small family wedding and reunions. Meals can be catered from the Abineau Lodge for events and, by prior arrangement, for regular stays. The home is located in such a safe and rural environment that windows can be left open to feel the night air and neighbors rarely lock their doors. It’s a far cry from city life and the atmosphere is small town and country living. Hawks circle the valley in search of a meal, elk herds meander the woods and meadows grazing on grasses, ravens talk to each other all day and the rat-tat-tat of woodpeckers is a daily sound.+ More
