About Us

Our Story


Windmill House is the vision of Joe Cordovana or JC as he prefers to be called.  JC came to America from Sicily Italy in the late '60s and found himself in the area of Prescott, Arizona in the early 1970's.  Around that same time, he found and purchased the 160 acres of land which would become the JC Ranch and home of the Windmill House in Chino Valley.   

Going back to his farming roots from Sicily, he initially stated to grow pasture and raise livestock all the while working on his vision.  In 2006 he went to work digging the pond and began construction on the Windmill House, the cottage and the landscaping.  In 2016 we celebrated our 10 year anniversary of the Windmill House and the 40th year anniversary of JC Ranch.

JC continues to develop on his vision everyday, towards what he wants to be the most premier property in Northern Arizona.  He continues to work daily on site, and is now in the development of JC Ranch Estates which will be a premier custom home subdivision that surrounds the Windmill House.   While the property is not open to the public at this time, JC has plans to open to the public in the near future for special dinners, happy hour on the patio and other community events.  

At this time, Windmill House is Northern Arizona's most premier, one of kind event venue and wedding venue.  While we host unbelievable weddings we also host amazing receptions, parties and business luncheons.
