Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Munds Park - Mountain Rose Retreat

Surrounded By Pines, Spacious And Relaxing, Roomy And Comfortable 3 Br 2 Ba

This beautifully decorated, well-maintained 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home offers roominess in 1700 square feet, located in Munds Park, AZ, with a 13,000 square foot yard (a third of an acre), completely fenced; it’s like staying in your own private, tree-filled park. And it is fully air conditioned!

Just 60-seconds away (by foot) is the entrance to the Coconino National Park, 200+ square miles of national forest, inhabited by elk, deer, squirrels, millions of birds, and all sorts of other wildlife. It’s a great spot for a relaxing time in the mountains or as a place to get away and entertain family & friends after a day on the slopes, skiing, snowshoeing, sledding, ATV or snowmobiling, hiking, fishing, mountain biking, or just lounging in the crisp, dry, cool mountain air. At an elevation of over 6,500 feet, Munds Park is a picturesque mountain community nestled in the world's largest stand of Ponderosa Pines, delivering cool mountain breezes throughout the summer.

Amenities include: a wood-burning fireplace; full kitchen with island and loads of counter space and cabinetry; a formal dining room with table and chairs to seat eight; a 55-inch HDTV in the living room and 32-inch HDTV in the Master Bedroom both receiving satellite channels; secure wireless internet; a Blu-Ray DVD player; huge master with queen bed, sitting area, and garden tub plus shower; second master with queen bed; children’s room with two twin beds, via trundle; full guest bath and shower; a full-sized laundry; quality linens and bedding; portable stereo; a diverse DVD library; kids books, games and movies, plus more. Sleeps six.

It comes fully stocked with dishes, pots, pans, cooking utensils, laundry detergent and basic soaps/shampoos, towels etc. A gas BBQ is also provided on the huge deck in the front of the home, along with patio furniture to allow you to enjoy the outdoor quiet with your favorite beverages or meals.

There are a nearby restaurant, bar, convenience store, gas stations and a golf course with driving range (Pinewood Country Club, with an 18-hole championship course). Hundreds of miles of hiking trails are seconds away (be sure to bring a compass!). All roads are paved and maintained and Flagstaff is a short 17-minute freeway drive providing numerous options for dining, entertainment, nightlife, festivals, theaters, observatories, skiing, and plenty of shopping. And just 10-minutes up the road is the Mountainaire Tavern, with great casual food, drinks, and games. The spectacular town of Sedona is only about 30 miles to the southwest. Snowbowl, one of the premier ski resorts in Arizona, is approximately 45 minutes north from Munds Park. Phoenix is about 120 miles to the south. Mormon Lake Lodge is just a short drive through the forest.

Day trips from Munds Park include, The Grand Canyon (or Grand Canyon Railway Ride from Williams), Williams Wild Life Park, Navajo and Hopi Lands, Winslow, Verde Valley Wildlife Park, Cliff Castle Casino located in Camp Verde, the red rocks and Indian ruins of Sedona, Meteor Crater, Sunset Crater, Montezuma's Castle, San Francisco Peaks Skyride (summer), and Snowbowl Ski Resort and Lodge, plus Northern Arizona University (with the Phoenix Cardinals Summer Training Camp). Mormon Lake Lodge & Steakhouse can be reached via forest roads in the summer, or paved ones in the winter.

For you nature lovers, you are likely to see elk, deer, turkey, javelina (collared peccary), raccoon, coyote, fox, squirrels, and a large variety of birds on your nature walks. (A javelina looks similar to a wild boar, but are not as temperamental. They are considered big game in Arizona, and are hunted during designated periods with authorized tags.)

The night sky is amazing in Munds Park, because there are NO street lights! You can see a billion stars, constellations, and galaxies, with the naked eye, that you'll never see in a large city. The spotting of a shooting star or man-made satellite occurs frequently. (By the way, bring flashlights if you like to walk at night…..it is really dark!)

Community Information: Wonderful playground, tennis courts, golf, basketball, clubhouse w/workout facility and restaurant, a community lake, hiking trails, and Munds Canyon.

What makes this house unique

When Bret and Mary bought the Mountain Rose Retreat in 2015, they enthusiastically remodeled the property, bought all new furnishings and artwork, and acquired quality linens, kitchen and bath supplies, and bedding to assure future guests of a comfortable, pleasurable vacation experience.

The house is one of the roomiest vacation rentals you will find anywhere (1700 square feet on one level), and the double lot provides a spacious, park-like setting (totally fenced) for guests to relax outside, for great conversation, meals, and room to play. It is one of the rare properties in Munds Park that is fully air conditioned to assure total comfort.

Perfect place to relax with your four legged friends. Loved the porch, yard, and hiking.

  • 4 of 5

The house is beautifully decorated and clean with many thoughtful touches such as candles, bath products, and plenty of pet necessities. The kitchen has more cookware and dishes than many other places we have stayed with fresh roses and chocolates as an added touch. The house is spacious but very cozy. We spent two night there with our two dogs and two pigs and cannot wait to come back.

Beautiful home surrounded by trees

  • 4 of 5

We loved this home. It is beautifully furnished and very comfortable. If you bring a pet, it's great...with leashes, fenced yard and even a separate fenced area. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is that being listed handicap accessible I thought there would be grab bars in the bathroom and even though there is a ramp provided for the front steps, it's kind of steep. BUT that was an oversight on my part. I'd definitely stay again.

Can't say enough good things about this property!!!

  • 5 of 5

This property is beautiful, clean, well-decorated and in a great location. The home was fully stocked with essentials and we were pleasantly surprised by the thoughtful extras left for us like chocolates and fresh cut flowers. The owner Bret was super helpful and accommodating after the previous reservation I booked suddenly canceled. The property manager Barbara was extremely sweet...just a lovely person. She was very thorough with her walk through and told us everything we needed to know about the house. We'll be visiting Flagstaff for the next 4 years while our son attends NAU and will definitely try to book this property as often as possible. I look forward to seeing Barbara again and staying in this beautiful home.

Perfect for dogs and just steps from the forest!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this cabin. It was perfect for our two hunting dogs as the yard was large with a high fence. Also, there is national forest access just past the next two cabins so every morning, we could take the dogs into the forest for a walk. The property manager was very friendly and informative. The cabin was very nicely decorated and had ac if you need it. Lots of space inside with three bedrooms, but we spent most of our time on the nice deck. We will definitely consider staying here again next summer!

Amazing Property

  • 4 of 5

This is actually my second time staying at the property and both times were just great! The fenced in yard is absolutely PERFECT for dogs (and kids). It is SO NICE not having to worry about bringing dog dishes or water bowls (they literally provide them for you!) and there are even a few dog toys and treats for the furry friends. It truly is a dog retreat!

The decor is beautiful and they really have thought of everything (chocolates, roses, and travel sized lotions, shampoos, etc.). The only suggestion I have would be a mattress topper for the master bed. All of the other beds have the topper (which makes them literally some of the most comfortable beds that I have ever slept on!)... this would be a fix that would make this a property literally PERFECT.
