Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Southside Neighborhood - The Franklin House

3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, full kitchen, loft, 3 decks to enjoy + attached 1BR/Bath

The Franklin House is a 5 min walk from NAU, 10 min walk from downtown, and is a perfect place to base your vacation. This newly built home provides multiple opportunities to spend some time outside on any of its 3 decks. Enjoy a relaxing drink on the front porch, watch the students drift by while swinging on an authentic ski lift chair from Mammoth, or sit on the upper deck while enjoying the afternoon sun.

If staying in is more your speed, spend time with family and friends in the welcoming great room - watch TV, snuggle in front of the gas fireplace, or cook an amazing meal in the spacious kitchen. If you need to spread out a bit more the upstairs loft provides a separate space for quiet reading or letting the kids play games or watch TV.

Three bedrooms/ Two Bathrooms plus the loft provide comfortable accommodations for 8 people (King, Queen, Full/Twin bunk-bed, Twin in loft).

The kitchen comes equipped with toaster, coffee maker, coffee grinder, cooking/baking essentials, and dinner/glassware for 10.

WiFi and TV is provided.

About Linda Kiehne

Originally from Wisconsin we have both a love for cheese and the outdoors :). We are avid cyclists riding mountain bikes and road as much as possible and know many of the trails around Flagstaff. In addition to cycling, our other passion is traveling and we have spent many of our vacations sight-seeing around the world learning as much as we can through our experiences and those of others.

Linda Kiehne purchased this house in 2014

Why Linda Kiehne chose Flagstaff

The Franklin House stood out for us when looking for a house because it provided a beautiful home in close proximity to both NAU and downtown Flagstaff. We love spending time downtown enjoying the people, the restaurants, festivals, and shopping. You get the sense that you are in the heart of Flagstaff while still affording the ability to get out and enjoy the outdoors at a moments notice.

What makes this house unique

Uniquely situated in the middle of NAU's off-campus housing district The Franklin House provides both a great location and a vibrant urban experience!

Please note however that the neighborhood can get lively in the evening, extending into late evening at times. This is more evident during the warmer season when open windows are a must!

Beautiful Place and Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I just stayed here for homecoming weekend and the place was more than we could have hoped for! The inside was really nice and had plenty of room for all of us to sleep and entertain when friends came over. There are 3 different decks and the very top deck you just can't beat the view and the lounge chairs to relax and enjoy the weather. They have speakers throughout the entire place that you can connect to with an aux cord which was a plus because we forgot to bring ours. The location is prime! You are right off of campus and can walk right downtown in no time. My friends and I can't wait to come back next year and will totally use this place other times whenever we are back in Flag. I definitely recommend it and guarantee you will be just as happy with the place as we were. Thanks again!

Absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5

Could not have asked for a more ideal home and location. The house layout, decor, and special touches such as the bottle of wine, chocolates, coffee... were wonderful. The location was ideal for our trip, we were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. This home made our trip easy and relaxing. Owner is very accommodating and pleasant. My only hesitation in writing such a glowing review is that it might make it harder to book it again in the future. We definitely plan on coming back.

Perfect Place!

  • 5 of 5

The house was great, well furnished and in a perfect location to NAU. We had two families in the house while dropping off two incoming freshmen students. There was plenty of room for all of us. We will be renting again!

Beautiful home very close to downtown Flag

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The house was beautiful and well-provisioned. I've never stayed in a vacation rental with a coffee grinder before! Linda was very accommodating and helpful getting our stay organized.

Perfect location for NAU and downtown!

  • 4 of 5

This house was just perfect for our family vacation - thank you. Easy walk to downtown and close to retailers and restaurants. Choosing a rental house based on photos and descriptions can be a "keep your fingers crossed" moment - but this house is all that and more. My husband was very impressed. The house stayed cool during the day and there was a steady breeze. The roof deck was our "go-to" spot in the evening for the sunsets and cocktails. The Franklin House will be our first choice when we return the Flagstaff. We highly recommend this house for groups and families who need some elbow room. Thank you again.

Gorgeous, comfortable home perfect for families.

  • 5 of 5

Linda's home was a dream getaway for our family, from the time we arrived to when we left three days later. The house is new and really well-designed. It had everything we needed, from the kitchen to toys for my niece and nephew to play with. All appliances worked great, and lots of windows to open for great Flagstaff breezes. Very convenient to downtown, and right next to NAU. All the beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms very nice. The pictures do not do it justice. We were so thrilled upon arrival. Linda was great to communicate with and so kind. We would jump at the chance to stay here again - great value for the money.
