Recent Canyon Country & Northeast reviews

  • Wonderful townhouse, Excellent location

    "I rented this townhouse for one month and it was awesome! Excellent location just a few minutes from downtown Flagstaff, Snowbowl, and just 90 minutes to the Grand Canyon. It's on a peaceful, safe cul-de-sac with great neighbors, and the townhouse is extremely comfortable with nice furnishings. The owner is super nice. I highly recommend this, and will come back again - for sure! :)"

  • Great Place to Stay

    "We chose this beautiful home to celebrate our first anniversary while visiting the Sedona area. Great decision! We had the equivalent of staying in a VIP suite for less than the cost of a hotel, plus we saved on a few meals by being able to use the well appointed kitchen. Quiet neighborhood, comfy bed, beautiful surroundings, and complete relaxation in a gated community home overlooking a golf course that feels brand new. The pictures you see are exactly what you get. The owners were quick to reply and very easy to deal with. We love the area and will stay here again on our next trip. It is a great value. Highly recommend Manzanita's for dinner, just a few minutes down the road. Centrally located to Jerome, Cottonwood, and of course Sedona."

  • Fabulous Girlfriends Weekend

    "I just returned from spending 3 nights at the Creek House with 3 high school girlfriends. I had chosen this home as we enjoy privacy, nature and a quiet environment. I have to admit I was a bit worried as we approached the house but once we stepped through the doors I knew I had made the right choice. The house is as described by other reviewers and the patios/decks are incredibly relaxing. We would have used the additional, detached room/building if the 5th person had been able to come. It would not have been a problem to share a bath with someone in the main building as all rooms are so spacious. The homeowner had provided me with great directions, although my GPS continued to refer to the "town" as Rimrock and not Lake Montezuma as the actual address indicates. Although there is not much to the nearby town we did enjoy breakfast at Nikki's which, we were told, is under new management. This local cafe is located right where you exit Route 17. It is on the left side of the road. Don't miss it! From the house we were able to easily access Cottonwood, Jerome and, of course, Sedona. The views driving into Sedona from the south are absolutely spectacular. Be sure to check out the Chapel of the Holy Cross just south of Sedona off of Route 179. More spectacular views. All in all it was a wonderful 3 days with great friends in a fabulous environment. I would definitely recommend the Creek House to others and I hope to return soon, myself."

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.
