Located in the heart of the Coconino National Forest along the San Francisco Peaks scenic corridor just north of Flagstaff, this spectacular and convenient location is just one thing that sets The Mountain Star apart from other area properties.
The Mountain Star, located at an elevation of 8,000 feet (2,438 meters) on 5 beautiful acres and backed by National Forest land, offers breath-taking natural beauty, expansive views, direct and easy access to nature, boundless outdoor activities (nature walks and hikes, biking, climbing, etc.) and a spectacular night sky. It is a sanctuary for inspiration, relaxation, reflection and rejuvenation, as well as being perfectly situated for outdoor fun and adventure.
The Mountain Star is less than one hour’s drive from the Grand Canyon’s main entrance, and if you don’t want to drive yourself, a local tour company van will pick you up directly from this property. So enjoy the Grand Canyon and then leave the heat and crowds behind to enjoy your very own mountain retreat!
Experience seeing the sun breach the horizon every morning and evening, moonrises and moonsets too. Let the mountain breeze, nature’s panorama and the rich senses of the moment guide your day of thoughts and activity. The Mountain Star offers this to you and your loved ones on a daily basis.
The Mountain Star is completely wind and sun powered (with an automatic propane generator backup system).
All outdoor photographs on this site were taken directly from the living room or leisure deck of The Mountain Star. NOTE: The Mountain Star is currently being readied for the rental season – more interior photographs (and possibly a video) will be available soon.
