If Spa indulgence and quiet spaces are more your style, the world-class Copperwynd Resort and Spa is the closest you can come to living in your own private resort retreat in Fountain Hills. Often featured among world class boutique hotels by Conde Nast and Lonely Planet, its Scottsdale Resort Spa Club is affordable for area residents ($50 per month for one of many key services, and discounts on other spa services). Club members have the use of the pool, gym, steam room and hot tubs on the day of service. Summer Spa and Stay packages start at $129, and change frequently throughout the summer.
But sipping an excellent wine on the balcony at Alchemy or Barista can be addictive…You are lulled by the quiet of the hills, and soothed by the 100 mile view of range after range of mountains. As you look across the hills toward Goldfield Ranch and the Verde River, you can see that just about everyone in Fountain Hills enjoys this kind of Resort serenity in their own back yard.
Once you give the Sonoran Desert lifestyle a try for a few days, you’re likely to long for our peacefulness and convenience when you return to the hustle of your “other life.” The Fountain Hills Post Office, Grocery Stores (3), Hardware Stores, Target, Ross, Tire Stores (4), Gym (6), Coffee and Wine Shops, Restaurants, Boutiques, Salons and Restaurants…are all less than 15 minutes from your door, and parking is never a problem.
From your Fountain Hills home or elegant condo, you can be at your Saguaro Lake boat slip in 25 minutes or at the cool pines of Payson before your coffee is cold. Sedona is less than 3 hours, unless you stop for a wine tour on the way!
Sky Harbor is a short 25 minutes down the Beeline Highway, and the Shea Corridor/101 Loop puts Scottsdale, North Phoenix, Tempe, Mesa and Chandler within reach in less time than most central Phoenix or North Scottsdale locations.
