View from the porch tonight. We are staying in a complete “off the grid” home, powered by the sun and the wind. The water is hauled to the site and loaded into a cistern. A beautiful, well decorated, and full of plants home, with a loft and wraparound porch. Every detail has been with thought, and feel blessed to be apart of someone’s dream today. The owner is a photographer artist, and has his work displayed all over this casa! Thank you Rob Dutton for sharing this incredible place called the “Mountain Star”
First....the property owner was very accommodating and really made us feel at home, we weren't treated like a customer. The location was amazing, the house was beautiful extremely clean and really made us feel comfortable and at home. I wish I could of stayed longer! Next time I'm back in town I will definitely be booking another weekend stay!
My husband and I can't say enough about the house and wonderful time we had staying at Mountain Star Rob our host had everything we needed to plan our days he went about and beyond the house itself was very comfortable and cozy and the views of the mountains is something you can never get over we are looking forward to future visits at Mountain Star
We enjoyed 3 wonderful nights at Rob's house. It was a perfect base for our exploration of the Grand Canyon, Flagstaff and surrounding areas. Rob met us at the home right on time and gave us the grand tour. He has a wonderful book of things to do and helpful materials all about the area. Quite better than any host we have had before. We were 2 couples, each bedroom was very comfortable with a private bath. WiFi worked great. The house is very clean and well equipped for cooking at home, playing games, watching DVD movies, enjoying the starry starry nights. Shampoo, soap, toilet paper, detergent etc. - all provided. The house has a very warm - positive energy feel from the moment you walk in. It is a private and happy place to be, especially after a long day of sightseeing and hiking. There are extra backpacks and flashlights and basically he has thought of everything you might need to borrow. We brought up some of our food, but there is a great Safeway about 30 minutes away in town so you can stock your fridge. It is a quiet, restful, safe place and I just wish we could have stayed longer! Thanks Rob!!!
From the moment we arrived at the beautiful Mountain Star, we felt at home and appreciated the personal note, flowers and message on the message board left by Rob the owner. It was the perfect location to stay to do day trips in the area. Some of our hikes and sights included Red mountain, Grand Canyon tour with All Star Grand Canyon tours (with amazing guide Chris McLuen) , Az trail, Sunset crater, Slide Rock in Sedona, Adobe Jack trail, Broken Arrow, Cathedral Rock, Templeton trail, Airport Vortex, and the Watchable wildlife trail 5 minutes from the house. We also took full advantage of the house and the amenities ( BBQ, washer dryer, dishwasher, cooler for day trips, games, Xbox, DVD’s etc.) We love that this home is powered by solar and wind and that it is so peaceful, comfortable, organized, spacious with stunning views.
We leave with so many amazing memories of this precious time spent with our teenage kids and we’ll surely plan on coming back soon!
