This adorable, large studio cottage, will give you the whole experience of a flagstaff vacation. The minute you step inside our cozy cottage you'll feel at home. Newly remodeled kitchen has all the necessities for cooking and preparing a meal. Including: refrigerator, oven/stove, high-end microwave, toaster, Keurig coffee maker, teapot and utensils. Full bath/shower combo, towels, blow dryer and essentials. For the bedroom: clean/sanitized linens for each guest, and plenty of pillows, and blankets. Separate closet and dressers.
Comfortably sleeps 2 adults and 1 child/teen. We can accommodate a family with 2 children or any combination up to 4 (i.e. 3 children 1 adults) but you must inquire beforehand, as it takes some set-up on our part. We do not allow 4 "adult" guests at any time in the cottage (please don't ask). Three adult guests will be considered. We have a comfortable rollaway bed with springs (not a board type). There is a $30 initial set-up fee - plus $10 per night if we setup a twin for a 4th guest (child/teen). For one child (under 8 years) who would be using the rollaway bed, there is NO extra $20 nightly guest fee. We will remove it from your booking total. There is an additional $10 fee for the use of the rollaway, clean linens, blankets, pillow etc.
Please count your child(ren) in your initial inquiry and guest count. If they're 8 years old and under, we will make the adjustment in the number and in your price, and then add the appropriate bed fee.
More about Madeline's Cottage . . .
Madeline's Cottage is nestled under the main house (private residence). It is completely separate. It has a private entrance. Hosts have no access in, nor will they invade your privacy at anytime unless you ask - or if we had an emergency, and/or the guest should require our presence.
The cottage is more of a hideaway (*please see photos). A comfy place of rest, retreat or to gear up for your stay in Flagstaff - and all the places you plan to visit. Blueberry Hill itself has it's own charm, and over an acre that you, your partner, your children, your pets, are welcome to explore. When you step outside the door, short steps towards the East and/or a look to the West, you have endless views and beauty to discover. There are hiking trails to the South and more towards the North & Northeast, which is just a short walk down our back road for those who do participate in this sport. Simply walking around the quiet rural neighborhood is a real treat.
Upper & Lower Lake Mary are about 8 miles up the road and a few others just a bit further. Blueberry Hill is the perfect spot and access for: fishing, professional/team bicyclists, runners, joggers, walkers - especially in Spring & Summer months, but we see them all winter too. If you come with gear, bikes, boats, RV's, etc, and need a place to host them as well, we've got the space on Blueberry Hill for you to do that. So, please inquire and we'll assist you in any way we can.
Close to everything - but has a remote feel. The location could not be more perfect. The small neighborhood is kind and welcoming, immediate surroundings are quiet and peaceful. Only 3 miles from grocery stores, department stores, restaurants, and NAU campus. Sits right at the edge of the forests with great hiking right in the backyard. These trails are some of the best in flagstaff, stretching for miles in various directions all the way to walnut canyon, mormon lake, and downtown flagstaff. The diversity of sights within an hour of flagstaff is magnificent. The depths of the grand canyon, wonders of Sedona red rocks, tranquility of oak creek canyon, and heights of the san francisco peaks are all close by. Add to that the impressive human history: native american ruins such as Wutpaki national monument, Navajo national monument, Montezuma castle, and Walnut Canyon.

Private residence is off limits to guests except by invitation only.
Public transportation is nearby - 2.5 miles from the I-17 & 89, Freeways. We're about 4.7 miles from the heart of downtown Flagstaff. If you want more of a city experience do not choose Blueberry Hill. We're definitely rural and you will be disappointed if you thought you would be within walking distance to the downtown scene. Otherwise, if you want: quiet, privacy, retreat, romance, hiking trails, biking - and the great outdoors - a more relaxing vacation for your visit to Flagstaff, then for sure choose us!
Pets are allowed however, see below for specifics.
Occasional snacks/meals available (will post if so) WiFi access, flatscreen TV in living area. Extra bedding is available at no extra charge.
If guests have guests, who would like a place to stay nearby and/or to camp and/or park a small self-contained vehicle/RV on Blueberry Hill, please ask about our motorhome and camping rates. We can also offer, when available an RV pad that will accommodate up to a 35' rig (need height measurements as well). This includes all services. Prices change with the season so please inquire.

Pets are NOT allowed on beds or furniture and cannot be left unattended unless they're crated - NO exceptions!

Pets are allowed entirely at the hosts discretion and on a case by case basis. We do not charge a refundable deposit. We charge an extra, "Non-Refundable" cleaning fee. For dogs/cats under 15 lbs the cleaning fee will be adjusted to $129.00 (total for human, feline & canine). We may consider two smaller breed dogs for the same cleaning fee as a larger dog. If we consider a pet over 20 lbs (seniors etc.) the cleaning fee will be adjusted to $149.00 (total human & canine).
If you'd like to bring a PET (we love animals) you must offer all the information about them up front. Please don't make me ask or guess - it wastes time for all concerned. Therefore, your initial request must include: type (cat, dog, bird etc) weight, size, breed, age and temperament. If this information is not included in your initial inquiry, and I have to ask for the details, your request could be declined.
Please DO NOT bring a pet with you as a surprise and/or as if we wouldn't notice and expect to add them later. This would be cause for an immediate cancellation of your entire reservation and you would be asked to leave immediately - without refund.
Pets are NOT allowed on beds or furniture and cannot be left unattended unless they're crated - no exceptions! If you plan to leave your pet crated, you must notify us by text so that we can be prepared, in the event of an emergency, while you're absent. These rates are good for up to a 5 day stay - longer stays will be adjusted accordingly.
Pets are absolutely NOT allowed to be bathed in the cottage bathroom and/or kitchen sink, at any time for any reason - outside only! If you plan to bathe your dog, bring YOUR OWN TOWELS and ask to use our hose unless of course you bring their own bathing tub. We're happy to share our hose and let you use warm water for bathing, but it needs to be outside - period, no exceptions!
