Guestbook comments from the owner

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your home in Prescott. We all agreed we had never rented a home that was so well stocked from A to Z. Perched up on the rocks was a setting new to all of us. Weather was delightful, cool and refreshing. TV's, computer, phone, AC (not needed during our stay), kitchen so well equipped, pantry staples, laundry washer and dryer, on and on, just perfect for us. You welcomed us with wine and flowers too!. Fun to watch the birds that visit your deck.



We all agreed Prescott is a great place to visit. Much to do, loads of eating spots, activities in the town square. Our hikers loved the many trails around the lakes too.



Thank you Colleen for making our visit to Prescott a memorable one.

Birthday Trip

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, and two other couples stayed in the cozy cottage for an extended weekend. We had a wonderful time. The home was everything and more than what we expected. Colleen did an amazing job decorating the place. It was very private yet close to town. I took a nap while my guest where out on the back patio (I know, very rude) and I never heard anyone. It's amazing how quite the neighborhood is. I highly recommend this home. I would love to come back for another stay. Colleen, thank you for sharing your house with us. Sara Jones

Comfortable and Easy.

  • 5 of 5

Nothing pretentious. This three bedroom rambler pretends to be nothing it is not. If you are looking for clean, comfortable well put together and inviting this is a great stay. We were in town to visit our son at nearby Embry-Riddle. Convenient to both the collage and to the Historic Section of Prescott, it made for an easy and relaxing visit. We very much liked the setting, as it felt as though we were up on a hill set back in the woods.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review... we don't pretend to be something we're not. I'd rather under promise and over-deliver than the opposite. Come back again... or try one of our other vacation rentals in Prescott: vrbo.com/858967 or 986733... they are bigger and totally different. Cheers! Colleen & Lindsay

Great location, very vice home!

  • 5 of 5

It was a very nice home with everything you need to stay in, but the location is so good, you won't want to. A mile from downtown, walking is a little tough due to limited sidewalks, but uber and lyft are in the area and cost just over $5. Visited both Lynx and Watson lake which were each around 10-15 minutes drive. Would definitely stay here again. Thank you!

Cute house lots of amenities

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Smoki twice. Coleen thinks of everything. The house is in a nice location. Quick drive to town but quiet street with lots of pine trees. We enjoyed sitting in rocking chairs on the front porch looking out at the clear Prescott sky.

Nice kitchen and outside grill. We will be back.
