  • Perfect spot

    "My husband and I stayed at this beautiful home for six nights recently when we were in town from Phoenix for our son's wedding. It was just 5 minutes from our son's home and was very convenient for us. We were pretty busy the whole time we were there, but still appreciated that there were games, bicycles, tennis rackets, and a notebook FULL of things to do. While we didn't get to use those things much, we were VERY thankful for the nice comfortable beds and linens. We had a little cooking to do and the kitchen was well stocked, and there was even a little drawer with scotch tape, pens, scissors. We loved the beautiful park across the street and the quiet. It was spotlessly clean and comfortable. We hope we can go back again, although we don't often have 5 nights, which I believe is the minimum."

  • High Desert Hideaway

    "We are a couple in our early sixties and were looking for a quiet semi secluded getaway and this place fit the bill perfectly. We took day trips to the Grand Canyon and surrounding sights and being that it was November it was pretty cold outside so we could not wait each day to get back to the pool,sauna and jacuzzi tub that the house has to offer.....we cooked all of our meals at the house and found the kitchen had everything we needed and also enjoyed the Direct Tv music and movies....overall the house was very clean and we had everything we needed and expected.....we will be back when it is warm outside next time so we can enjoy the outside as much as we enjoyed the inside of the house."

  • Comfortable Home in a Great Location

    "My husband and I have been to Sedona many times for day and weekend trips. We wanted more time to really explore the Sedona area. We also were hoping for a quiet home to use as our base. Mark's home is located in a great spot. A very peaceful neighborhood in West Sedona, with no traffic noise, but friendly neighbors and within walking distance to several restaurants and a very short drive to Uptown Sedona, the Village of Oak Creek and hiking trails. Mark created a very comfortable atmosphere with his personal touches that make it a very welcoming home. His attention to detail was what impressed us the most. If you enjoy reading, you will appreciate his library of books. Mark is a very gracious host. If you have questions or comments, he responds and reacts quickly. The beds were comfortable, the bathrooms clean, and he had all kitchen and barbecue items available, plus a washer/dryer and much more. We would stay there again and highly recommend Mark’s home. We left feeling we found a friend Thank you for letting us share your delightful home. We sincerely hope to return."

  • Beautiful Cabin

    "Very nice, modern, and clean home. Everything was organized and set up for enjoyment. The house was a little close to the adjoining neighbors, but the trees and forest made up for it. The home owners were easy to work with. Would rent it again."

Canyon Country & Northeast Travel Tips

Getting to Northern Arizona Vacation Rentals

Northern Arizona is famous for the Grand Canyon and it attracts many tourists throughout the year. For visitors from other parts of the world, your main access points are either Phoenix, Arizona or Las Vegas, Nevada. As the crow flies, Las Vegas is closer but the vast canyon lands make access limited so Phoenix is actually the closest major airport when you travel by car. It is located approximately 230 miles south from the Grand Canyon. Phoenix hosts most major airlines from North America and also has good flight connections to other destinations in Europe, South and Central America. Las Vegas International Airport has regular direct flights from the major eastern cities and Europe. If you don't want to drive the 200 or more miles to Northern Arizona then you can get a domestic flight to Flagstaff which has a regional airport. Flagstaff has regularly scheduled flights from Phoenix, Las Vegas and other cities, such as Denver or Salt Lake City. Your best option once in Northern Arizona is to hire a car. There are bus and rail services but they do not operate on a daily basis so you will need to plan carefully if you want to travel this way.

Year-Round Vacations at Northern Arizona Cabins

Arizona is known for its year-round warm climate. The summer months which run from May to October can get blisteringly hot. You need to protect yourself from the sun if you plan to spend any time outdoors. Sunhats, sunglasses, sunscreen and long sleeves are essential, and closed boots are recommended as the terrain is gravelly. In the winter months, it can still get very warm during the day and temperatures drop to below freezing at night. Snow does occur occasionally, especially at higher altitudes. Your best bet is to wear layers so you can peel off or add on as the weather changes. Because of these extremes, most people say that their favorite time of year to visit is during the spring and fall months. The temperatures are somewhat milder but still warm enough to explore and enjoy the many magnificent sights.

Major Attractions and Activities at Northern Arizona Lodging

Most people travel to Northern Arizona to see the impressive natural landmark known as the Grand Canyon. The canyon stretches for a distance of 277 miles along the Colorado River. In places, the canyon is 18 miles wide and more than a mile deep. Scenically, it is one of the most dramatic and impressive landscapes that you can ever wish to see. Sections of the canyon are protected national parkland. There are several viewing sites and lookout points on the canyon's rim. If you want to get a close up perspective of the canyon, one of the best ways is to take a whitewater rafting trip down the Colorado River. Local outfitters offer guided day trips as well as multi-day trips. There are various launch sites depending on which type of trip you opt for. Another way to explore the canyon is by following one of the many hiking trails. If you are inexperienced, it is best to take a guided trip with one of the park rangers or local outfitters.

Visitors to Arizona Vacation Rentals

Northern Arizona attracts a wide variety of visitors. Some come just to tick off the Grand Canyon on their travel list. Others come to marvel and explore its landscapes. Many artists and photographers visit to capture the scenery on film or canvas. Outdoor enthusiasts can choose from a number of great adventure activities in the area.
