Description and House Rules Below:
The Barn is a wonderfully contemporary rustic barn-style home. It is on a cul-de-sac, a very private 2.5 acres, and is a perfect place for golfers, balloonists, birders, bikers, hikers, tourists, and more.
Enjoy a combined rustic and urban experience in pristine air --town population 10,000. Swimming pool, garden area, firepit, circle driveway, convenience (maybe 5 minutes to local markets and shops).
Minutes from five different wineries as well as Sedona, Jerome, Dead Horse Park, Tuzigoot Ruins, Sycamore Canyon, Oak Creek, Verde River, Montezuma’s Castle, Camp Verde, The Clarkdale-Perkinsville train run, and the Cliff Castle Casino. Three hours from the Grand Canyon as well as Sky Harbor Airport.
The Barn is one mile from the charming Old Town district, but you won't have to leave the property in order to relax and watch the wildlife such as javelina, quail, coyote, roadrunners, and hear and see horses and peacocks. Swim in the pool in the warmer seasons. Sit by the firepit outside (gas grill on front patio) with veranda dining or sit by the cozy wood stove inside. All modern amenities with stainless steel appliances and butcher block counter tops.
See fantastic views of Mingus Mountain, the distant Mogollon, (and on a crystal clear day, majestic buttes and mesas are visible for miles.) Inside the double storied Barn, you’ll find a Hi Def TV hooked up to cable, free WiFi, a full kitchen and laundry, air and heat, and a wood burning stove, games, maps, brochures--everything but food!
The two bedrooms plus a loft sleeps seven comfortably-eight possible, and a blow up mattress is available for more. The master bedroom can double as family room with portable screen dividers for privacy. The bedrooms have closets and drawer space, and the loft has king bed with storage and wardrobe clothing valet.
On 2.5 view acres. Gigantic private patios both front and back. Back yard is shady and securely fenced, (so is the pool) so that kids and dogs and in-laws are safe and contained.
PLEASE READ THOROUGHLY AND PRINT THESE INSTRUCTIONS.TAKE THEM WITH YOU TO THE BARN.
Before you use the fire pit, you must check for fire restrictions: https://firerestrictions.us/az/
When using the fire pit, make sure hose is functional at pit--is connected properly to pool side house spigot. Test it, please.
Yavapai county is very serious about open fires .
Pool light--dimmer switch on back patio beside sliding glass door.
Please roll the garbage and recyclables out Tuesday night or before if leaving Sun/Mon. Taylor Waste comes way before dawn on Wednesdays. They charge extra to come back out if it isn't out there.
Guests , children and or playful dogs can get gravel, glass, cinder rocks or crayons (yes, it happened) into the pool. Those items are dangerous and will damage vacuum and pump--repairs at guests' expense.
Our key concerns are that you enjoy your stay and that our neighbors are considered respectfully regarding noise, parking, road courtesy, fire pit use and safety, etc. The baby grand is for pianists only--not children. Also, please do not rearrange furniture outside or in. If patio furniture is moved, please put it back in original positions before leaving. Do not leave lounge chairs in the sun or out overnight.
Please try to launder ALL linens and ALL towels before departure; leave folded on dining room table. There are clothes lines in back if needed. Trash and recyclables are to be rolled down to "curb" so that housekeeping does not charge additional fee.
The pool is serviced weekly but, when the wind blows, debris can appear quickly on the surface and in the strainer basket. Feel free to skim the surface when needed and to empty the basket. BUT, never remove the pool vacuum. That could damage the pump.
Important note: Just in case there should be a pipe break or water leak (that has not happened but it's a good thing to know), the main switch to turn everything off, including the well pump marked "well pump" is in the breaker box outside on right side of barn exterior wall. There is a pressure tank in the small back porch enclosure that has a valve handle to turn off water going into the house. Again, hasn't happened but good to know.
A set of starter paper supplies is provided. Towels and linens provided. Propane and small bundles of wood can be purchased at the Chevron down the street on Fir- Street. We do not keep condiments other than salt and pepper on site.
Let me know if you need anything. Thanks for taking care of the barn.
Happy and safe travels,
p.s. please don't leave any food on premises, in fridge, in cupboards. (rules, rules, rules--sorry)
