The outdoor areas at The Birch House are spacious and inviting with plenty of trees! There is a small stone patio with a gas grill off the kitchen for when you feel like grilling at home.

Lovely historic home near downtown

  • 5 of 5

This is such a delightful historic home with all the modern conveniences within walking distance to downtown Flagstaff. Everything was provided, including detailed instructions on how to work the television remotes. I can’t tell you what a joy it was to have that. Also, everything you wanted to know about Flagstaff, including restaurants and things to do is in the black binder. It made the trip so enjoyable to have so much information at our fingertips. The WiFi was fast and the fireplace was awesome. Loved our stay here!

Brich House - Downtown Flagstaff

  • 5 of 5

We love this house so much. It is one of our favorite places to stay when we visit Flagstaff. It is so convenient to everything; you can even walk to downtown Flagstaff; yet it is very quiet and tucked away. The house itself is wonderful; lots of room inside and all the amenities, always immaculately clean. Kitchen is awesome with everything you need to cook full meals if you want. We love the front yard with the fire pit; so fun to sit around and look at the beautiful Flagstaff sky!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

I was in town with family for my NAU graduation & we found this little gem! Wonderful location and an adorable place. Plenty of space & 2 full bathrooms but the best part is a close walk to old down town to shops & restaurants.

We enjoy our stay & will be back!!

Great house with character very near downtown

  • 5 of 5

This house is very comfortable and in a great location. It is located just a short walking distance from downtown Flagstaff. The house is old, but it is nicely decorated, clean and very comfortable. The owners are very responsive as well. We enjoyed a great Thanksgiving dinner during our stay.

Perfect mix of charm, location & modern amenities

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough good things about the Birch House. My husband and I traveled with 3 children and my mom. From games and puzzles, bikes, sleds and personal printed travel guide to the prestocked laundry detergent, toiletries and paper goods, the owners of the Birch House have thought of everything. We will definitely be back!

About Jennifer Morris

We started our family here in Flagstaff in 2003. The Birch House was our first home and we couldn't let it go! We live and work here in Flagstaff and cannot imagine ourselves anywhere else!

Jennifer Morris purchased this house in 2003

Why Jennifer Morris chose Flagstaff

The charm of the classic downtown house and location can't be beat! We love the small town feel and expanse of the outdoors at 7000 feet! We ski, hike, cycle, boat . . . if its outside, we are doing it!

What makes this house unique

The Birch House is located at the end of a quiet, residential street located close to it all! It's old house charm with original wood floors and windows and fabulous lighting made us fall in love with it more than a decade ago! We are certain you will fall in love as well!
