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, Property Manager.

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, Property Manager. purchased this chalet in 1996

Why Matt Nelson, Property Manager. 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!

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived, the chalet was warm and everything is beautifully placed. I spent the time with my kids, my girlfriend and some friends.

The place is strategically located. Very close to the i-10 but peaceful. We spent the first day seated at the wonderful wooden terrace. During our first night, there was a snow storm and the morning I saw one of the most beautiful mornings I have ever seen. We roasted marshmallows and sang songs. We played outside, slidding in the snow. It was awesome.

It was one of my kids' birthday so we cut a cake and sang Happy Birthday to him outside, in the snow.

I could go on and on. It was one of my best weekend getaways ever.

What a wonderful weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at the artist's chalet! The side yard was perfect for the pup to run around in the snow, and the sledding hill was so much fun! There was plenty of room for everyone, and absolutely loved all the decorative art! Matt was fantastic to work with and always answered my messages quickly. Cannot say enough good things about our stay, thank you so much!

Loved this house!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful and comfortable! The art and decor are gorgeous. We stayed in early January and got to take advantage of the sleds and the hill in the back. We also took a trip to a sledding hill nearby and did a day trip to the Grand Canyon. Our king bed was super comfy and I loved the warm fleece sheets. The fenced back yard is perfect for dogs, and they had a dog bowl and separate dog towels. The owner and/or manager is obviously a dog lover:) The kitchen had everything we needed. We will hopefully return in the summer for another stay.

We enjoyed our stay at this chalet

  • 5 of 5

We appreciated the unique decorating in this A-Frame chalet. It was located in a perfect spot for our two families. We were visiting Sedona and going to the Grand Canyon. We arrived late and were greeted by Christmas lights and a free bottle of champagne. The home is equipped with kitchen utensils, towels and even soap and shampoo. There was also a nice selection of books and board games. These were nice personal touches that made are stay memorable.

Wonderful experience. Beautiful home. Great property manager.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the mountain chalet for three nights. The home is beautiful and provides all basic necessities and more. The property manager was very helpful during the reservation, and provided detailed instructions for arrival. He followed up on our arrival and our departure. Our deposit return was processed expediently. Great experience.
