The Mountain Star was the perfect landing spot for our family of five! Close to Grand Canyon National Park and other natural attractions, the house was our home away from home. Rob, the property owner, was the perfect host – forgetting no detail and leaving no comfort unfulfilled. Best of all were views at The Mountain Star, particularly spectacular at sunrise and sunset, maybe only to be outdone by the magnificent night skies. We loved that the house is solar and wind powered too! We couldn’t have been happier with our stay there – unless it was longer.
The Mountain Star was an amazing place . We truly enjoyed Rob's hospitality and help with planning our itinerary! It was spectacular inside and out!! We give it five stars!
My husband wants to look for land near this beautiful spot!
Thanks so very much Rob!!

Had a great time, perfect for my family of five. My son loved the drum set! Beautiful views, cozy and comfortable, would recommend.
We travelled to the Grand Canyon area to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. From day one when we first started considering Mountain Star, the owner (Rob) has been the most responsive and prompt home owner we have ever worked with! All of our inquiries were responded to within 24 hours or less. Once we booked the Mountain Star, Rob sent us a great deal of information about the home and the multitude of activities that are nearby - and there are a lot! With his advice and the help from his activities/hiking guides that are provided, we visited amazing places at the Grand Canyon that had an unexpected level of privacy. We also experienced a beautiful scenic drive through Oak Canyon and Sedona. Additionally, we were able to visit places like the Lava River Cave and the Red Mountain (do not miss this!) that we weren't even aware of before we received the guides.
We arrived at the Mountain Star after a 2 day drive and Rob was there to meet us in person to walk through all of the amenities of the house, which was much appreciated. At the beginning of our stay, Rob provided us a weather forecast for our entire stay, specific to the elevation of Mountain Star. He also went above and beyond by texting us later in the week when the forecast changed and high winds were predicted to make sure we were aware and safe.
The mountain view from the house does not disappoint! Having a fire on the deck and being able to take in the stars (minus any light pollution) was beautiful! The house was well-appointed and very comfortable.
We can't think of a better place to have celebrated our 10 years together! Thanks, Rob!
I would like to note that this review is my husband's and my honest opinion of our stay and that no compensation has been provided for this review.
We’ve rented many homes but with the Mountain Star, Rob was the most helpful and supportive owner we have dealt with. From all of the detailed input to our plans as well as the comprehensive hiking information, Rob helped make our stay very comfortable and relaxing, knowing we had a resource to count on in unfamiliar territory. Mountain Star was like a home away from home, offering everything we needed and being a great hub for hikes, trips to the Grand Canyon, Sedona, and Page/Lake Powell. For those reasons, we would highly recommend Mountain Star to other visitors.
Rob, owner, is the real deal! He met us at the Cabin and spent an hour going over all the details with us, including his favorite off the beaten path hikes. His guidance was spot on and helped us avoid crowds and touristy spots. We can't thank him enough for helping us plan our perfect days to Grand Canyon, Sedona, and Flagstaff.
The cabin was so comfortable and had such a wonderful homey feel to it. We sure enjoyed the stocked kitchen and plentiful cut up wood for our fires on the deck. The night star gazing did not disappoint.
We hope to be back.
We stayed at the Mountain Star for our honeymoon and had a wonderful time! We visited the Grand Canyon and Sedona and were glad the Mountain Star was waiting for us nearby when we were ready to rest. We could have spent our whole vacation in this house! There are many attractions very close by, which the owner (Rob) details in his guidebooks available in the Mountain Star. Rob has fantastic inside information on all the best attractions in the area, so be sure to ask him any questions you may have about the area. Very comfortable, bright light, great scenery out any window. Everything you need while on your Arizona vacation is waiting for you at the Mountain Star! We certainly will return again and again!
