Overview

About the property

Chalet style charmer with 4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, sleeps 8 in Kachina Village.

This visually enchanting Artist's Chalet is a perfect Flagstaff retreat. The home is located in Kachina Village in a quiet cul de sac 8 miles from historic downtown Flagstaff, 5 miles from west Flagstaff and 23 miles from Snowbowl. There is a semi private and safe SNOWPLAY AREA including a hill right out the back of the driveway!

This unique and eclectic home has many of the owners paintings and carved and painted furniture showcased throughout the home, as well as many local artists paintings and artwork gracing the home. It also features an expansive entertaining deck to enjoy the garden oasis and tall pines while relaxing in a swinging chair, or outdoor firepit. Upstairs skylights and lots of windows provide plenty of day light and an evening solar system view.

An outdoor paradise, surrounded by amazing hiking trails, excellent cross country skiing, world class mountain biking, and canyoneering. Just minutes from historic downtown Flagstaff, you can find native culture, fine arts and great restaurants and epic winter sports activities at the Arizona Snowbowl and Flagstaff Nordic center. Great adventures and memories are just a short trip in your car! The red rocks of Sedona, Monument Valley, Wupatki National Monument, Painted Desert, the Arizona wine country, kayaking on the Verde river, bumping along dirt roads in the Arizona back country while discovering wildlife, alpine lakes and high desert vistas, and of course, the epic views of the Grand Canyon!

The Artist's Chalet is dog friendly with approval of the property manager. The home has a fenced in back yard that many a critter has played in. Please note that forest is a wonderful place for dogs to explore but don't under-estimate the vastness of this wilderness section. Miles and miles of forest, canyons and steep cliffs offer opportunities for adventure but easy for a critter to get lost (and you too!).

About Matt Nelson

I am an artist, outdoor enthusiast and a social worker! This house has been such an extension of all these things.

I've traveled around the world and have had the pleasure of staying in family homes, I'm so happy and to be able to offer my home to you!

Matt Nelson purchased this chalet in 1996

Why Matt Nelson chose Arizona

My former wife and I fell in love with this home in the forest back in 96. I made my name as both an artist and a social worker. The Grandon Art gallery was a fixture of Flagstaff for many years and fostered acclaimed artists of the region. Many of these artists, as well as my own work hang on the walls of the House. The original drive way was in the front and there where no plants other than the pines! This is the first year that the apple tree bore fruit!

What makes this chalet unique

The adventure starts from the front porch! Whether you are interested in a meandering hike along a seasonal stream, exploring remote canyons, discovering a hidden waterfall, or canyoneering with ropes and narrow chilly slot canyon swims, you can get there, without starting your car. From the front porch Iv'e seen coyote, fox, elk, bear, porcupine and javalina that have snuffled in the flowers! In the winter time, the sledding hills are spectacular for kids, plus cross country skiing or snowshoeing gives you access to a silent wilderness. The mountain biking is outrageous! Tremendous trails for all levels.

Flagstaff is such a charming mountain town with a vibrant arts, dining and music scene. You might find yourself enjoying great bluegrass music sitting outdoors on the patio of Flag Brewing Company chatting with local artists or river guides reliving the epic run at Hance rapid or lava falls in the Grand Canyon. You will fall in love with this mountain town!

Great house and location.

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 7 adults found the house to be comfortable, well equipped and clean. Matt, the caretaker, contacted us promptly and offered any assistance we might need, but we found everything we needed. The location was perfect for the Grand Canyon and Sedona. Be sure to take 89A, the canyon drive, when you go to Sedona. Awesome scenery. Flagstaff has a lovely, historic downtown and well worth a visit. Great vacation!!

Beautiful cabin, very clean!

  • 5 of 5

We had 6 people stay in the cabin over the weekend and everybody loved it. The cabin was easy to find, fit 6 people comfortably and it was very clean. The front porch and yard are beautiful and we spent most of our time around the fire. Beds were comfortable, towels were provided, and the owner was easy to contact. I would highly recommend this cabin to anyone looking to find a home in flag to accommodate 6+ guests.

We stayed here for the weekend this summer. Loved the location and the home had everything we needed! The firepit out front was beautiful in the evenings. Thanks for such a relaxing home.
