Cute, Cute, Cute! A Bona fide Log Cabin, built in the 40's, possibly older, but that's as far back as the property records go. It's sweet, small, quaint, funky & located on 1.25 acres with a meadow, seasonal creek (July, December-March) and tall elms & cottonwoods (the pine forest is at a higher elevation, 1 mile away but we've planted quite a few!). There are lots of birds, butterflies & lizards to watch (but sorry, no TV, tho WiFi & Sirius radio are avail). Wildlife goes through nearly every night, especially javelina and raccoons! We've also seen a coyote on the critter cam! This one bedroom has gas stove, a deep Serta Sleeper mattress & high-thread count cotton sheets plus an assortment of pillows, including cervical support or memory foam. Pets must be okayed by owner with signed Pet Addendum & Pet Fee.
A layout of the Cabin and view of each room is available at:
Please C and P.
We also have a 2 bedroom Cottage if the Log Cabin is booked: VRBO - 889880
You'll love the interior of this 1 bedroom (Queen-size bed), 1 bathroom (large shower) log cabin with log walls, log ceiling beams and hardwood floors throughout.
The Log Cabin has fascinating features, like the original walk-in closet and built-in bookshelves. Even the vintage wood kitchen cabinets with rope pulls are adorable! We outfitted the dining room with an oak table and kitchen chairs made with rodeo cowboy upholstery! In the living room there is another oak table with hand-painted bears and bear claws on it, a loveseat and 2 rocking chairs.
There is not a TV. We provide great high-speed Internet, games, puzzles, cards, and lots of books, magazines and brochures about the area, history, events and cowboy and Native American art and culture.
The Kitchen is Furnished with a Stove, Refrigerator, Microwave, Toaster oven and Coffee maker. Cooking utensils are provided along with pots and pans, glasses, coffee cups, silverware and dish towels. There is a storage closet with brooms, cabinets and shelves for your extra kitchen items and cleaning supplies under the sink. Coffee and filters, sugar, creamer, salt and pepper, coconut oil and a few other items are provided.
The Cabin is decorated with Antique and Mid-century Modern furniture, Southwestern patterns and artwork of Native Americans, Cowboys and Arizona nature and wildlife. We did some renovations including a new refrigerator, toilet and water heater, so there's nice hot water and good water pressure for the shower!
We scrubbed the floors and logs and put a bright, fresh coat of paint in the bathroom, bedroom, kitchen and living room. We've added new curtains, door locks, a keyless entry, hardware, grill and outdoor seating. The front porch has a Flagstone floor with a bench and rocking chairs where you can sip your coffee in the morning or wine in the evenings while you watch the birds and wildlife. We've had a lot of the yellow finches, roosting mourning doves, ravens, and a ladder-backed woodpecker lately.
In front of the cabin we've added native grasses and a seating area. Past the meadow (newly sown with Poppies, Lupines and Southwestern Wildflowers) Miller Creek runs seasonally after snows or Monsoon Season. In back of the cabin an herb garden grows with oregano, sage, mint, rosemary and thyme. You're welcome to cut a few to take home! When in season, there are also penstemon, salvia flowers, clematis, sweet-smelling jasmine, butterfly bushes and grapevines of Chardonnay and Muscat.
In the Bedroom, a high Queen-sized Pine Bed reigns over the bedroom with Iron Scrolling and a deep Serta Perfect Sleeper Pillow-top Mattress on top of box springs. You'll feel like the Princess and the Pea on this massive bed! Don't worry--there's a step stool to help us shorter folks! High-thread count sheets, a cottony quilt, blanket and three styles of pillows are available to you: non-allergenic bamboo, doctor-recommended, cervical support or anti-allergenic poly-fill. Wall Lamps provide lighting for night-time reading. The rustic walk-in closet holds built-in shelves for clothes, a chest with a key for clothes or valuables, plenty of room for hanging clothes, a full-length mirror and an ironing board and iron.
The bathroom is clean and bright with a window, new grout in the shower, a pedestal sink and a toilet to which we've added dual flush...up for one, down for two. A medicine cabinet will hold your sundries and there's lots of fluffy bath towels, hand towels and washcloths! Shampoo, conditioner and soap are provided. We try to be non-wasteful with healthy products in bulk or if you prefer, you can choose sample sizes.
The Western theme continues in the Living Room meeting a Mid-century flair with loveseat, antique chairs, and a vintage rocking chair. An iron coffee table with Southwestern cutouts and a a stone top compliment the design. A TV is NOT provided at this time but there is High-speed Internet for streaming movies.
We'd love to have you come visit. There are so many things to do in Prescott and surrounding areas, whether you're driving through on a short visit or staying longer. As the cowboys say in Potter's Cowboy Slang, You're "as welcome as a pat straight flush"!
We also have a 2 bedroom cottage, if this does not suit your needs or is booked. The VRBO number is 883663, "Sparkling, Renovated Cottage". We'd be happy to accommodate you there too!
