Enjoy the Elegance of the Old South in Scottsdale

April 18, 2018 Vacation Rental Insider Travelers

When you think of Scottsdale Vacation Travel, you probably picture a true Southwest vibe, replete with arid desert landscapes and earthy decors. However, among the Old Town Scottsdale Places to Stay is an estate that is rich with Traditional Southern Charm and embraces Camelback Mountain Views. If your favorite design elements are reminiscent of the Deep South rather than the Southwest, you’ll love staying at Old Town Scottsdale Chateau.

 

A Plantation in the Desert

This brick and white-paneled manor would be as much in place in Atlanta as it is in Scottsdale. One of Holiday Rental’s Luxury Vacation Homes, Old Town Scottsdale Chateau’s brick walkway leads to an enchanting entrance with Georgian pillars that welcome you as you arrive on the one-acre estate. The lush green lawn and towering trees create an oasis feeling outside the desert, while still situated within an arid climate. The northern lighting keeps everything temperate and pleasant. Let’s step inside.

 

Airy and Spacious Interior

Of all our Scottsdale Luxury Vacation Homes, this might have the brightest ambience. An elegant formal staircase leads to the upstairs bedrooms. White and lightly colored walls and furnishings set off the rich dark wood flooring and molding throughout the home. Each room is softly appointed with plush seating for your entire party to gather. The formal living room and dining room are surrounded by 10-foot Palladian windows with arched tops and French doors through which sunlight brightens the home’s interior. The breeziness filters across the kitchen and its white marble island, white cabinets, and stainless-steel appliances. Picture yourself visiting Arizona for the holidays and creating culinary magic in a fine chef’s delight with a double-sided brick fireplace. Bring your favorite vintage wines to store in the wine fridge under the island.

 

Luxury Sleeping and Bathing Accommodations

This glorious manor features eight bedrooms and five and a half baths to comfortably accommodate up to 20 people. The master bathroom has a balcony to enjoy some private views. Inside this master bathroom is a spacious tub to soak away a day of sightseeing or golfing. Crisp linens and soft hues in each room set the tone for a peaceful night’s sleep.

 

Step Outside

An old Southern home wouldn’t feel quite right without an expansive space on which to gather. Exit the house through one of the many French doors and step onto the covered brick patio. There is an abundance of seating, including an old-fashioned swing that’s perfect for curling up with a book and a mason jar filled with fresh lemonade. Off to the side is a wood-burning fireplace and outdoor dining area that wistfully beckons everyone for an evening of gazing and laughing under the stars.

 

Care for a Dip? Or Maybe Shoot Some Hoops?

One of our lovely Scottsdale Vacation Rentals with pools, divers will appreciate the deep end to practice their graceful techniques. Lounge chairs and a gazebo provide ample opportunity to sunbathe in privacy. For those with an insatiable competitive spirit, there’s a lighted sports court featuring a basketball hoop. A ping pong table, bocce set, and corn hole game are also available for your entertainment at this Family Friendly home.

 

Walk to Old Town Scottsdale

While this property offers all the privacy you want from a luxury vacation home rental, it’s so close to the action that you won’t even need to drive. Located in the Arcadia neighborhood, you’ll have easy access to the fun in Old Town Scottsdale and its Old West feel. Whether taking in a festival, shopping at the boutiques, or enjoying the exciting dining and nightlife options, you’ll find whatever makes you happy in this district.
