About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

At a 7,400' elevation, Snowbowl Mountain Hideaway has magnificent views of the San Francisco Peaks and sits nestled in rural surroundings. The forest area is located near the front of house and is literally within 1 minute walking distance to trails for hiking/biking.

This home has the best of both worlds. The back of house has a country-like setting which sprawls over 2 1/2 acres of natural grasses meadow terrain. Wildflowers crop up during the summer months where one hesitates to run the tractor to mow! The winter seasons bring wonderful snowfalls that leave picturesque views across the valley. A wooded area of ponderosa pines are scattered on the west side of the property. The side yard and all around the back of perimeter of yard is completely fenced in.

Here, one can sit and enjoy the sunrise with a cup of coffee on the deck/balcony in the morning, and cap off the day with a glass of wine in the evening - perhaps capturing the herds of elk heading down from the nearby forest to graze in the distant pastures. There is a variety of wildlife in the area; elk, deer, coyote, skunk, badger, raccoon, and even black bear. Overall, one never tires of taking in the serene sites of the countryside and mountain views. Other homes sit sprawled out on one or two acre lots.

In the evening, the extremely clear skies make this is a wonderful place to star gaze and one doesn't have to wait long before making a wish - seeing their first falling star of the night!

The house is approx. 1,800 sq feet. It has a Kitchen/Dining Room which is open to the main Living Room area. There is a wood burning stove that sits in this room supplying appealing warmth/ambiance for those chilly Fall and Winter seasons. A cathedral ceiling is over these rooms.

The Kitchen is a full kitchen with microwave/electric stove/refrigerator. There is a large pantry for storage. The Kitchen has ample counter space for preparing meals and for seating, in addition to the table in Dining area. The outside deck/balcony has an additional 500 sq feet of extra space with picnic table/umbrella along with deck furnishings for comfortable and relaxed seating to enjoy the great outdoors.

The Master Bedroom has a king-size bed, and is located on the west side of the house, with a full bathroom attached. There is also a large walk-in closet in the Master Bedroom. On the other side of the house, beyond the Kitchen/Living Room area, are the other two bedrooms. Both bedrooms have two single beds in each room/dressers/end tables. (The 3rd bedroom has a day bed with trundle, that easily pulls out to a single bed). There is a full bathroom across from these bedrooms and a utility room with washer/dryer accommodations. A fully stocked linen closet is located at the end of the hall.

In the Living Room area, a queen-size fold-out sofa bed can be utilized to accommodate additional guests upon requests.

All bedrooms/Dining/Living Room areas have glass (arcadia) doors that lead out onto the deck/balcony area in the backyard. All of these bedrooms have wonderful views of the Peaks.

The two car garage sits separate from the house and has ample room for bikes etc. There is plenty of parking in the driveway if one has an RV or trailer.

About Julie Bruggeman

Julie Bruggeman purchased this house in 2004

Why Julie Bruggeman chose Flagstaff

The location of our home is in a rural/country setting and has spectacular views of the San Francisco Peaks/forest areas. The four seasons in Flagstaff have allowed our family to escape the heat of the Valley during the intense summer months while giving us the opportunity to enjoy fall and winter activities. This house is located approximately one hour from the Grand Canyon, and one mile away from the entrance road to Arizona Snowbowl Ski area. Nearby hiking/biking/sledding for all to enjoy. The home is a short distance from downtown Flagstaff.(appr. 7mi).

What makes this house unique

One of the main benefits of staying at this property is getting away from the busyness and fast-paced city life. Here one can relax, experiencing the tranquility of bygone days. This is how life should be — definitely more down time and outdoor living. Of course I can't stress enough the million dollar views from this property!

Our family enjoyed a very special week at this 'Mountain Getaway' enjoying life. Spent morning and evening time on the deck enjoying an incredible view. We were treated to regular visits from Elk, Mule Deer and resident Chipmunks. Grandsons spent hours playing in the fenced 'yard' (yard is an understatement... it's huge). Mountain air, warm days, cool nights, and QUIET unfamiliar to a city family made the experience very memorable. With this incredible home as a base we were able to enjoy the Grand Canyon, Wupatki Indian Ruins, Northern Arizona Museum, mountain hikes, and even a rodeo in Williams. This home is everything advertised and beyond. Must be experienced to appreciate!

My husband, daughter and I headed north to escape the heat in Tucson for the Labor Day weekend and chose the Snowbowl Mountain Getaway. The house was perfect for us. Fully equipped with everything we needed, we found the house to be spacious and very comfortable. The mountain view from the back deck was just stunning and it was nice that no other houses were close by; we spent our afternoons out there relaxing and reading. The beds were comfortable and the house was very clean; we loved the layout with the master on one side of the house and the other two bedrooms and laundry room at the opposite end. There are lots of games, puzzles and movies and a large screen TV in the living area (smaller TVs in the bedrooms). No AC but we didn't need it with the way the nights cool off in Flag, it was heaven to sleep with the windows open and enjoy the cool breezes (lots of fans provided if you need them, though). The house is a short drive (10 min) to town and attractions but we enjoyed the setting so much we didn't want to leave the house. There are hiking trails at the edge of the property and we enjoyed hiking in the pines and spotted deer while hiking. We found the owners to be very responsive to any questions we had prior to arrival and easy to work with. Would definitely stay again. Highly recommended!

Our family enjoyed our weekend stay for a family wedding in the area. The house was perfectly situated for our commitments in the Flagstaff area. We would stay there again if we are in the area.

Very Comfortable and a Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect house for our vacation in Flagstaff. Its location in the shadow of Humphrey's Peak guaranteed a great start to every day. Nearby hiking in the plush forest and our proximity to so many different sites makes this house perfect for a family getaway; either for just a couple of days or much longer. The house was very comfortable. The kitchen was well-equipped and the three bedrooms were exactly what we needed. Will definitely be back!

The home was very nice and cozy, very clean, gorgeous view and close enough yet far enough away to be perfect. We plan to request again.

Thank you
