About the property

Chalet, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)


Location, location, location. We offer 2 Chalets, our 2-bedroom "back" Chalet (featured here -- read more ABOUT THIS CHALET below) and our 1-bedroom "front" Chalet, VRBO 370657. Our Chalets are located an easy 2 blocks west of Courthouse Square in historic Prescott (pronounced “Pres-kitt”) – at one time the pre-state capital of the Arizona Territory. Festivals abound just about every weekend during mild weather seasons, often held right at Courthouse Square -- jazz, blues, arts -- you name it! In addition, Prescott features interesting museums, casinos, our nation's oldest rodeo in July, antique shopping, upscale shopping, outdoor year-round Farmer’s Markets, and 450 miles of hiking and biking with 5 lakes in the area.

It's a pleasant and quick walk from our Chalets to great restaurants, entertainment, and every variety of shopping. Our incredible location -- just two blocks from Prescott's historic Courthouse Square and the center of many of Prescott’s activities and festivals – is, without a doubt, one of the BEST. There’s rarely a need to drive once you get here – just park and leave your vehicle** in our private, off-street lot** – and this is a huge PLUS during any downtown/Courthouse Square event when parking is at a premium. (** One small-regular sized car/van/truck -- sorry, no oversized vehicles, extended bed trucks or RVs. Street parking is available.)

Our Chalet grounds feature lovely and simple Arizona landscaping, on-site parking**, privacy fencing rimmed by soothing shade trees, a vine-covered pergola walkway, and in mild weather.... a little herb garden for use by our guests who love to cook! During the summer, you can hear the cicadas sing. Close to downtown, yet it feels private and secluded – and so-o-o-o-o-o relaxing! (** One small-regular sized car/van/truck -- sorry, no oversized vehicles, extended bed trucks or RVs. Street parking is available.)

Did you know Prescott is known as Arizona’s “Christmas City?” That’s because Courthouse Square is beautifully lit for the holidays (about early December – mid-January: confirm exact dates with Prescott’s Chamber of Commerce There’s also a crazy western “Boot Drop” and mini street festival (Prescott’s answer to New York’s Times Square festivities) on New Year’s Eve at Courthouse Square. You can actually see Prescott’s New Year’s fireworks from our Chalets.

There is always something happening in Prescott, Arizona – everyone’s home town! Find it all at Love live music? -- go to Want to know the weather in Prescott? -- check out Contact the Chamber of Commerce

OR…. mix it up a little bit and take a fun day trip to Jerome, Sedona, Flagstaff, Grand Canyon, or Phoenix/Scottsdale!

About Pearl Carpenter

We fell in love with Prescott for its warm and friendly people, wonderful and mild four-season climate, and the endless entertainment and activities available here. Prescott is, without a doubt, “America's favorite home town!”

Why Pearl Carpenter chose Prescott

This mile-high community provides four distinct seasons and generally mild temperatures. There are endless activities sponsored by an active and friendly community. Our Chalets are within a short walking distance to much of this beautiful historic town. Our incredible location -- just two blocks from Prescott's historic Courthouse Square and the center of many of Prescott’s activities and festivals – is, without a doubt, one of the BEST. There’s rarely a need to drive once you get here – just park and leave your car in our private, off-street lot** – and this is a huge PLUS during any downtown/Courthouse Square event when parking is at a premium. (** One small-regular sized car/van/truck -- sorry, no oversized vehicles, extended bed trucks or RVs. Street parking is available.)

And Prescott’s proximity to other classic southwestern towns – Phoenix, Scottsdale, Flagstaff, Sedona, and Jerome – just can’t be beat!

What makes this house unique

We enjoy a leisurely walk around nearby Courthouse Square just about any time, but especially when it’s beautifully lit up for the Christmas season or hosting a special event. Visiting local shops offering everything from antiques, western attire and furnishings, and high fashion to kitschy tourist memorabilia; attending the many weekend outdoor events (often held at Courthouse Square); shopping at the outdoor Farmer’s Markets held year-round; reading a book while sitting on the porch; or just simply enjoying the beautiful night skies and the cicadas’ melodies on a warm summer evening…. there’s so much to LOVE about Prescott and our Chalets’ great location. And when we don’t feel like cooking, we simply walk into town to enjoy a meal at one of our many “favorite” restaurants – most of them just minutes away by foot.

Guestbook comments from the manager

we are about to wrap up our trip to Prescott and our stay at the chalet. we are so sad we have to leave. If we had our choice we would stay forever. Pearl made everything so perfect and gave us everything we needed and wanted at the property. We hope to be back soon. thanks for making our trip even better than we imagined.

Great house for our stay in Prescott

  • 5 of 5

We had a golf outing with four friends from college and this house was perfect. Even though it was only a 2 bedroom we were able to use the sleeper sofa in the family room and the loft easily accommodated an air mattress that we brought. The house was very clean and fully stocked with everything we needed. The owner was also very helpful giving us a full tour of the property so we knew where everything was and how all of the house features worked. Definitely will try to book this house for next year's trip.

Owner's Response: Wow! Thank you for your rave review! We are pleased our Chalet worked out for you and your college buddies for your golf weekend. Remember we also have a one bedroom Chalet on the same property if your group expands (upstairs loft bedroom and a sofa sleeper on the first floor). Hope we see you again next year -- maybe sooner!?!

Great 2nd visit to Prescott home-away-from-home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the 2-bedroom Chalet. As we recall from our first visit, the Chalet continues to be clean and well-appointed and the large kitchen worked great for making our pre-Thanksgiving Dinner for our son and girlfriend who live in Prescott. We did notice several new, upgraded items this time, including a large, outdoor gas grill (we shared with the front Chalet) and a huge, flat-screen Smart TV with lots of free streaming channels. The décor has also been changed a bit to give the Chalet a subtle Southwestern look. The owners also now provide nice quality shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and hand soap in each of the two bathrooms -- very appreciated! What hasn't changed, of course, is the great location. We parked our car in the brick-covered, little courtyard parking lot and pretty much left it parked there the whole time, since virtually everything we wanted to see and do, the shopping, and the restaurants, were all within walking distance. There's a little street noise in the evening as we remembered from last time, but that's to be expected from this convenient location and It didn't bother us. Even though it was mid-November, we still enjoyed several outside meals and wine on the front porch dining table. The outdoor dining areas, both front and back, have a private feel because of the wooden fencing and tall, shade trees surrounding the Chalet property. We've also stayed in the 1-bedroom, front Chalet, which we remember being very pleasant too; it was occupied by other guests during this stay. All in all, we continue to recommend this Chalet and hope to come back for our third visit sometime soon!

Our Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This was our third year staying at this rental and we had a blast as expected!! The property is very well-kept and in a perfect location, we enjoyed the Italian restaurant across the street at least twice. Pearl does a fantastic job of keeping the property beautiful and clean. We truly feel like this is our home away from home!

Great location great place

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we stayed here and this time we rented both places. The location is great - only a block or two from whiskey row and the square. An easy walk. The place is super clean and full of great features like the huge Weber grill and large deck to relax and eat on. In addition Pearl is a great host and is only a phone call away should we need anything.

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying with us again this year -- we love having you and your crew! Sometimes we forget the combination of our two Chalets is just perfect for a larger group traveling together -- thanks for reminding us of that! And remember, as the old saying goes: "The third time's the charm" -- so we hope to see you once again at our beautiful Chalets and in our great, little American Southwestern town of Prescott, AZ

Beautiful home but lacked privacy

  • 3 of 5

The home itself is beautiful, and in the perfect location just blocks from downtown. It was clean and well maintained. We were put off by a few things though. For our trip, it was just the two of us, my boyfriend and I. Pearl, the property manager, didn't seem to believe that it was just two of us, so made sure to stress the fact that she needs to know everyone's names who are staying because of fire codes. I reassured her several times that we were the only ones staying. At 10AM the following morning, we were awakened by Pearl and her husband walking the property and knocking on the door. We were still sleeping, but I came to the door and asked what she needed. She wanted to print something, using the printer that the office the home has. Maybe this was legit but seemed that she was checking up on us. With the outdoor security cameras this should not have been necessary. She also informed me that I should not have the doors open (the security doors were closed) as the cottonwood trees would cause a mess. Coming from the Phoenix heat we were excited to have some fresh, cool air, so this was annoying and seemed like any mess the trees made could be easily swept or vacuumed up.

A couple of things that the posting does not state that are noteworthy:

The fireplace does not work - it just has battery operated candles.

Checkout time is 10:00 and not 11 (Pearl was there at 9:45).

A check is required at check in, and it's given back once the property is inspected at check out.

Though Pearl was willing to work with us for a later check in, it was a lot of back and forth with her wanting to know exactly what time we would be there. Exact 4:00 check in seems to be what's preferred.

For the price paid we hoped for a better experience.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are sorry you were not pleased with all aspects of your stay at our Chalet and we do apologize. As property owners, we’d like to respond very specifically to your concerns. ----- FIRST, to clear up some misunderstandings regarding our property’s amenities/policies….. The “Overview” section of our HomeAway/VRBO listing, plus the “Notes” included in the “Rental Rates” section, state a security deposit is collected separately at Check-In. Security deposits are standard for vacation rentals, so this should not have been a surprise. We do not list a fireplace as an amenity – it is shown in one picture, but enlarging that picture will show candles placed inside, so it is visibly not a working fireplace. The rental agreement signed prior to or at occupancy states a Check-Out time of “at or before 10:00 a.m.” Our review of the HomeAway/VRBO booking conversations between you and Pearl show a requested a flexible Check-In time (i.e. after 4 p.m.) which Pearl said she could accommodate – how that changed the evening of your actual Check-In was further arranged between you and Pearl and perhaps that got complicated. ----- SECOND, regarding your concerns about privacy….. Our listing states there is another Chalet (our “front” Chalet) on the same property. We had a guest checking out from and a new guest checking in to that front Chalet on one of your days of stay – and so our Property Management team, Pearl and her husband, needed to get that front Chalet ready for the next guest and our supply shed is located behind the "back" Chalet where you were staying. You were aware there was a front Chalet because you had inquired about it, but it was already taken, so you rented the back Chalet. Pearl’s request to use the printer was an innocent request, but one we acknowledge she should not have made of you. That request is not typical of her interactions with our guests, as evidenced by most reviews for our Chalets which typically point out Pearl’s willingness to be an invaluable local resource, as well as provide the best guest experience possible. Pearl is always conscious and concerned about the need to respect our guests’ privacy, and often communicates this to us as owners. Again, we apologize for your experience. Thank you. PROPERTY OWNERS

Nearest Restaurant
0.01 Miles
Car: recommended

Located just 2 blocks from the city center -- the beautiful Courthouse Square, plus the famous "Whiskey Row," great restaurants, entertainment venues, and all the other great happenings in historic downtown Prescott. The city presents free activities in Courthouse Square many days and nights, especially during the warmer months. Prescott is close to Jerome, Sedona, Flagstaff, and the Grand Canyon. Phoenix/Scottsdale are only 100 miles to the south. Flying in??? -- you don’t need to rent a car unless you want to take day trips out Prescott since the "Arizona Shuttle" service makes numerous trips to/from Prescott and the Phoenix airport every day -- just ask to be dropped off at the St. Michael Hotel/Bistro drop off point and you can easily walk to our Chalets in about 5 minutes or less.
