“Exceeded our expectations.”
Reviewed September 16, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Our family stay at Mountain Star exceeded all expectations. The house was beautiful, the setting tranquil and lovely, the sky at night, magical. Whether we were indoors making dinner and listening to music or outdoors on the wrap around deck having dinner by fire light this was a perfect family experience and one we will all treasure. The proximity to the Grand Canyon as well as many other outdoor experiences was an additional bonus. Our hope is to come back again.

“Prairie and Mountain Views for miles”
Reviewed July 15, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Our family (2 adults, 2 teens and 2 dogs) spent a long weekend at the MountainStar. The house is situated in the middle of a beautiful prairie with mountain and forest views. It is about 30 minutes NW of Flagstaff and even though it was just a short drive into town we never went. We enjoyed the house, unplugged from technology, played card and board games, watched movies from the DVD library, hiked, bbq'd and enjoyed spending time together. The furnishings were very comfortable; the house was fully stocked with supplies and there was nothing we needed that wasn't already in the house. Wildlife abound, birds, bunnies and Elk walking through the area on a daily basis made for a wonderful weekend and we will deffinitely return!
