Save $$$ *** Experience an ideally-situated, magical Mountain Getaway with Incredible Views and so very much to offer! See my personal site for lots of handy information at: TheMountainStar .com Located in the heart of the Coconino National Forest along the San Francisco Peaks scenic corridor just north of Flagstaff, this spectacular and convenient location is just one thing that sets The Mountain Star apart from other area properties. The Mountain Star, located at an elevation of 8,000 feet (2,438 meters) on 5 beautiful acres and backed by National Forest land, offers breath-taking natural beauty, expansive views, direct and easy access to nature, boundless outdoor activities (nature walks and hikes, biking, climbing, etc.) and a spectacular night sky. It is a sanctuary for inspiration, relaxation, reflection and rejuvenation, as well as being perfectly situated for outdoor fun and adventure. The Mountain Star is less than one hour’s drive from the Grand Canyon’s main entrance, and if you don’t want to drive yourself, a local tour company van will pick you up directly from this property. So enjoy the Grand Canyon and then leave the heat and crowds behind to enjoy your very own mountain retreat! The Mountain Star is completely wind and sun powered (with an automatic propane generator backup system). During the warmer months, the home is 'air conditioned' with refreshing mountain air using the operable windows that are in every room of the house, ceiling fans throughout and the operable window blinds throughout...and nights are always refreshingly cool in the warmest of summertime. A powerful and effective evaporative cooler is also provided for the few occasions when a little extra cooling comes in handy! During the colder months, The Mountain Star stays warm with 3 radiant heaters, a gas 'fire place' and a very efficient, living room pellet stove. In addition to the usual amenities, this resort home offers: •Spacious, 2nd-story wrap-around deck with picnic table, chairs, an outdoor fireplace for burning wood. Cut and split wood provided. •Over one acre of fenced “backyard” •Large outdoor campfire pit stocked with wood •Music and exercise fun loft equipped with a full drum set and an acoustic guitar! Also: an elliptical trainer and dumbbells. •Spectacular star and moon viewing •Living room pellet stove •In addition to WIFI, cellular internet signal present for most major carriers •Outdoor Horseshoes game •Easy hookup of your smart phone or ipod to the home’s central sound system .

About the neighbourhood
The Mountain Star is a rare and amazing location. It has the beauty and openness of a remote mountain location yet is only 20 miles from the key regional center and resort town of Flagstaff.
