Matterhorn Place is an Owner/ Operated Vacation rental. What that means for our guests is unparalleled attention to our guests and the cleanliness of the property, and, all the other little details that will make your stay unforgettable. Experienced Vacation Rental travelers themselves, the owners recognize what makes for a memorable vacation experience. They recognize just how important the accommodations are to that end.
Completely renovated over the course of the past year, the property is immaculately clean and tidy. Adorned with special decorative touches, all with a regional flair, you’ll literally feel “right at home” the minute you walk through the door.
The house is expansive enough and the floor plan so inviting you can have multiple families easily accommodated while not feeling overcrowded or in each others way. There’s plenty of room to go around. The Kitchen is fully stocked and the bathrooms have had the special attention needed to comfortably accommodate a house-full of guests. The bunkhouse is the perfect getaway for the kids by day, and a haunt for the adults by night. Poker anyone? And, it’s perfectly temperate year-round!
The beds, featuring either memory foam or pillow-top construction, are as comfortable as any can be, assuring all the needed rest your busy time in Northern Arizona will require. The “main floor” bedroom with its bathroom in close proximity and private access to the expansive deck is a sure hit with seniors (no stairs), or allows for some versatility and privacy if there are several family’s staying together at the same time. The front porch is a great place to chill, providing unprecedented views of the mountains and great people watching as the locals walk their dogs in the evenings. The rear deck is huge!, overlooking the flagstone patio area just below. The fire pit in the middle of the patio will warm even the coldest on a winter’s night or provide just the right ambiance as cocktail hour wanes on a cool Flagstaff summer night.
The house is capped at 10 guests. But not to worry, there is a real bed for each and everyone. The garage and driveway will easily accommodate 5 autos so you’ll never have to worry about being short of parking space during snow season or having a “parking issue” with the neighbors.
Swiss Manor neighborhood is known locally as one of the best places to live in Flagstaff. Its central location allows quick, easy access to virtually everything in town. This proximity also facilitates the same to the many natural and cultural wonders of Northern Arizona via all major roads and highways. Easy getting around.
Consisting primarily of owner-occupied single-family homes, Swiss Manor is quiet, safe and provides some of the quickest, easiest access to the great outdoors- the primary reasons visitors come to Flagstaff. Access is literally 200 yards away, connecting you to the labyrinth of hiking, running, mountain biking, etc., trails that makes Flagstaff world-recognized. The property’s owners have lived here for 35 years and have stayed in the Swiss Manor neighborhood themselves because of all the neighborhood offers.
To the relief of our guests, you won’t find yourself caught in the noise, congested traffic and university mayhem of downtown and west Flagstaff. And this includes avoiding all the traffic congestion during winter both to the Arizona Snowbowl and back, again. Back roads, anyone?
But, the beauty of Matterhorn Place is that within minutes you can be in the “middle of it all” if you desire and then conveniently return to peace and quiet via local back-roads which provide some of the best vantages of Flagstaff’s extraordinary scenery,. You’ll experience all the ease and wonder the locals do, making your stay just that much more memorable. Additionally, the views of mountains and the surrounding forests from Matterhorn Place are virtually unparalleled in Flagstaff. This is due to the fortune that the neighborhood sits high above the city on the flanks of Mt. Elden.
