Photos and Description of the Parks vacation house rental

House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

East of the Sun/West of the Moon is located in Parks, Arizona which is between Flagstaff and Williams off of Interstate 40.( 4 miles off) It is the absolute perfect vacation and/or romantic get-away, for the outdoor enthusiast, high altitude trainer, artist/writer, family gathering, or just plain rest and relaxation. It is only 3 miles off OLD ROUTE 66!

It is very private and quiet, and has a FULL panoramic view of The Peaks (San Francisco Peaks, or sometimes referred to as Humphreys Peaks), and other surrounding mountains and hills. It is located on 12 acres, of prairie flat land, that backs/or is adjacent to the Kaibab National Forest (1.4 million acres).This allows for endless trails for hiking/walking, running, or perhaps also enjoy biking, and horseback riding. In the winter, sledding, snowmobiling and cross-country ski right out your door! This is a great home base for excursions to the Grand Canyon, Sedona, Flagstaff and Williams, all the outlying areas.

It is located one hour from the Grand Canyon, 25 min. to Flagstaff, about 50 min. to downtown Sedona (35 minutes. to top of Oak Creek where West Fork hiking trail is located). Only 20 minutes to the town of Williams, where you can catch the train to the Grand Canyon or for the Polar Express (winter season)!

It is a perfect house for two-three couples, with a couple of kids, but please inquire. The main house has 2,100 sq. ft.; a very large open floor plan, and a large antique wood burning stove for heating. The house was custom built, all the wood in the house was hand-milled on site; white oak floor throughout the house.

This is a NON SMOKING home; however, there is a designated smoking area. Certain times of the year, there is NO smoking on the premises due to extreme fire danger. One would have to smoke in their car. Please inquire.

You will feel rested and recharged after staying here! Mountain views from every window including the master shower, and plenty of windows and natural light.

The floor plan in the house is open - a large kitchen with a six-person farm table. We also have a card table with four chairs. It is very bright and sunny. Yes, we have internet and satellite TV!

The min age of age to rent the property is 25-years old.

Max. occupancy is eight; however, inquire for more. If you are looking for more space, inquire about my guesthouse availability (VRBO 840085) or my neighbor's VRBO house, for Large Family get togethers!

The great room has an antique yet very efficient wood-burning stove; you'll be plenty warm enough!

The master bedroom has French doors that lead out to a separate deck for privacy. The master bath has a large claw-foot cast iron tub, with a separate shower (views of the mountain from the shower too!)

The second bedroom has a king bed OR two twins.

The sunroom has a queen hide a bed with air mattress for extra comfort. We also have a full size hide-a-bed with a air mattress. We have privacy screens to create a separate space in the sunroom. Two cots and sleeping bags are available for the kiddos.

We also have a pack-n-play and a high chair. The master closet is often used as a bedroom for a baby.

Well-behaved dogs and horses by permission only; extra charge. Extra charge and deposit required. We have a fenced kennel.

Dogs are $25 per night, per dog. DOgs are not allowed on furniture. Evidence of so will result in extra cleaning fee or loss of deposit. Dogs are never to be left alone in the house. Evidence of so will result in extra cleaning fee. I do require purchase of property damage insurance also for pets. ($59)

2100. sq. ft. house @ an altitude of 7,300. ft. Built 2005.

Located four miles north of interstate 40, on a paved road, with year-round access.

House is located on a paved road that is plowed first thing in the morning in winter. In winter, we suggest, but is not necessary, for a four wheel or all-wheel drive vehicles.

FOUR Seasons: We are located at 7,300 ft. We have snowy winters normally although the last few years have been mild with spurts of storms and great hiking weather in between. The summers are high 70's-mid 80's with monsoons in the afternoon. Night temps drop into the 50's. Fall is fantastic, low 70's with temperatures dropping at night. The trees start to turn and it is a secret getaway for fall colors!

The kitchen is open and very large with a wrap-around porch and large BBQ. It is well stocked with gourmet kitchen utensils. We even have staples: flour, sugar, spices etc.

The laundry room is available for stays 7 days or more only.

This is an energy saving house, it requires being mindful of water, as we haul water. If you would like to bring your own linens, please let me know.

The deposit depends on how many are staying, and if there are pets or not, please inquire.

There is a guesthouse next door, which may or may not be occupied. See VRBO 840085.


Located on the majestic San Francisco Peaks, the Arizona Snowbowl lies 14 miles outside of Flagstaff, 2 hours from Phoenix, and 70 miles from the Grand Canyon. The resort opened in 1938 and operates from 9 AM to 4 PM daily.
