No central heat & air / window ACs upstairs only in living room & sleeping area / heating is LP space units and electric space units, no cable TV or internet/WIFI, etc. If you want to stay in there are movies and board games. This is the place we go to get away from the world and electronics! If you are looking to get away and back to basics this is it! We'll always help you locate what it is you want to see or do. The NeighborhoodOnly way in to the property is by the Historic Phoenix Railroad Bridge and is a dead end gravel one lane road. Great privacy but still a sought after place by others during weekends and holidays for all the outdoor features of this area. So it is busy during the holidays in this area.
