Unique Benefits and Location Advantage

  • The Mountain Star is a truly rare and amazing location. The home offers the most beautiful and panoramic views available in Northern Arizona. The home’s extensive windowing was designed specifically for the views. The home directly faces the beautiful San Francisco Peaks to the south, Kendrick Peak to the west, Saddle Mountain to the east and forested hills to the north. At 2,438 meters (8,000 feet) of elevation, the night sky is glorious and the summer evenings delightfully cool. Sunrise and sunsets can be readily seen daily as well as the rise and setting of the moon.

    The Mountain Star enjoys the beauty and openness of a remote mountain location yet is only 20 miles from the key regional center and resort town of Flagstaff and less than one hour’s drive along a scenic undivided highway to the main entrance of the Grand Canyon National Park. The home is easily accessed via a well-maintained and beautiful, undivided 2-lane highway (AZ 180) that exists almost exclusively to provide thoroughfare to the Grand Canyon. The Mountain Star’s five acres are part of an area known as Kendrick Park, a 180-acre private land “island” in the middle of the Coconino National Forest (the largest stand of Ponderosa Pine in North America). The home itself is directly backed by the national forest.

  • Hiking and sight-seeing opportunities abound in the immediate area. You can walk out the back door right into the Coconino National Forest. In addition to recreational opportunities just outside the Mountain Star’s walls, this location is, in addition to the Grand Canyon, a doorway to the many attractions of the region including Oak Creek/Sedona, Meteor Crater, Wupatki National Monument, Sunset Crater National Monument, Walnut Canyon National Monument and more. Upon booking you will receive an area activities and sightseeing guide including these destinations and more, a custom hiking guide to the area, and a forest service road excursion guide.

    As guests of the Mountain Star, you will also have the option, if you so choose, of picking between two Grand Canyon touring companies that will pick you up right from the Mountain Star’s driveway. These companies provide guided van or hiking/walking tours of the Grand Canyon. This information is provided with your completed booking.
