Adorable & Affordable Historic Cottage/Walk to Downtown/NAU/Groceries & Trails

Located in: Flagstaff
Lilac Cottage will be available from May 31st 2019 to end of August 2019. The front room now has a farmhouse table and chairs at the window instead of the second daybed (pictured). And a workspace too. This ground floor apartment is spacious and tastefully furnished with antiques that look great with the original wood floors. High ceilings and large windows add to the ambience. There is a sweet fenced yard in front to enjoy with options for sun and shade. Kitchen and bathroom have been updated in White Farm house style. Eat in kitchen plus dining area in living room. Lilac is located in a large historic home (Built in 1901) just two blocks to NAU, Route 66 and walking distance to the hip South-side of Historic Downtown Flagstaff with it's unique eateries, breweries, coffee shops & galleries. 90 mins to Grand Canyon. 35 mins to Sedona. 25 min to Ski-ing. Cottage is cute, well-equipped and nicely furnished and located in a central Westside neighborhood but please note: the train runs regularly across the road and up the hill, night and day. Welcome to Downtown Flagstaff! But you will enjoy convenience, safety, walking to town/NAU plus privacy, a sweet perennial filled garden and ample off street parking. Natural Grocers is at the end of the street. This unit (attached to two others) has one bedroom, day bed in living room, updated bathroom and fully equipped kitchen. They offer a great in town location for the right price in super expensive Flagstaff plus vintage charm and high speed internet and lovely outside spaces that are rare for in town. Convenient base for all your Northern AZ excursions. ***For stays of one month or more, no tax is paid. Contact us for availability, rates and details.

The Location:
This is a safe inner-city neighborhood that is mostly residential (mix of families and young people/students) but with businesses mixed in. Old homes are being torn down to build luxury apartments and historic preservation is sadly missing. Don't expect a high-end manicured residential area. NAU is a couple of blocks away as is Route 66 and a row of mid-century motels. The house is in the oldest part of town which pre-dates Downtown. There is a community ballpark half way down the street. At the beginning of our street you'll find Natural Grocers, Haven Montessori School, Matador Coffee and nearby Barnes and Noble. This is an urban getaway; if it's a gated community or country club you're looking for this is probably not your place. However we love this end of Clay Ave. - children play in our section of the street, the forested hillside above the house make it feel like the country. You can walk to Flagstaff's award winning Himalayan Grill, (All you can eat Indian lunch buffet $8.99) Not to be missed. Also walking distance; Mike & Rhonda's is a popular down-home, affordable breakfast spot. Sweet Pea Cottage is walking distance to Downtown Flagstaff, particularly the newly revitalized South-side district known for unique funky eateries and bars. At the end of our street, cross Milton/Route 66, and turn down Mike’s Pike and you’ll find The Toasted Owl for a more relaxed truly Funky Flagstaff breakfast or lunch on the patio or inside. Mother Road Brewing company is across the street from the Toasted owl. Fratelli's Pizza and Beaver Street Brewery, both highly recommended, are around the corner. Walking in the opposite direction to town there is a path along the railroad tracks at the end of the street. An underpass leads to the dense forest of Thorpe Park. It's so great to be in town but close to trails. We love staying here when we visit town and we hope you will too. ANY QUESTIONS, JUST ASK :)

WALKING TO TOWN & PLACES TO CHECK OUT: The best breweries and restaurants of South Side ARE within walking distance, for an English person anyway, IF you follow these directions ☺ Cross the street and walk down Clay Ave, you will reach Matador Coffee. Cross Milton and you will see a sign for Mike's Pike (Road runs diagonal to Milton) Walks down Mikes Pike and you will see Mother Road Brewing, Toasted Owl and around the Corner Fratelli's Pizza; ALL GREAT! And beyond that many more great establishments: Dara Thai, Beaver St Brewery, Historic Brewery, Lumbermans (crowded and noisy), Macey's Coffee, Bellagio for breakfast, Raw with it's stunning rooftop bar, The Patio and more. Across the tracks, you will find The Visitor Center, and North side. If you don't like to walk, stop here. But if strolling around a walkable Historic town is your idea of fun then continue on to Fire Creek Coffee (Live music/poetry/storytelling) and beyond. Karma is a local favorite sushi place, Flagstaff Brewery is good for live music and reasonably priced food. Head up San Francisco St, you’ll find art galleries, boutiques and Creolo, Latin American cuisine, another local favorite and dozens more eateries around Heritage Square plus more breweries, pubs, historic hotels, tea shops , coffee shops, wine bars and music venues. If you don't want to walk more than a couple of blocks from the cottage, try Mike and Rhonda's for Breakfast and Himalayan Buffet for lunch or dinner. Natural grocers is at the end of the street. Matador coffee is truly great Java. Sprouts and Safeway and many fast food/cheap eats including Chipotle are a super quick drive heading South.
