  • Beautiful!

    "Beautiful home and setting. Accommodated our dogs well. Loved sitting on the deck listening to the wind in the trees...very peaceful. Enjoyed looking for wildlife and actually seeing some. Just a heads up to anyone with mobility issues, there are steps to get into the house as well as inside the house, but they are wide and shallow. House was spotless; owner was very helpful with our last minute reservation with dogs. We will definitely stay here again and recommend it to friends and family!"

  • Wonderful Sedona

    "We are a British family of 5 that stayed in the Creekside Chateau in August 2014 for 3 nights. This was our first visit to Sedona, and was one of the highlights of our vacation. The Creekside Chateau was exactly as described and with the most amazing terrace and garden. We especially liked the quirky nature of the interior (previous occupants had tried to count the number of angels in each room), the extremely comfortable chairs and the enormous DVD collection. The outside and the garden were wonderful too. The giant chess set was put to use, as well as the bbq and tables for dining out. We sat out on the lawn after dark and gazed at the (very clear) Milky Way and fished in the river. We especially enjoyed the seclusion and privacy that is a feature of the property. The property is within an easy drive of Sedona town centre, but has a grocery store within walking distance of the house itself. We had no reason to contact the owners while we were staying there as everything was in good order. They were, however, extremely courteous and helpful when we were making enquiries. Highly recommended."

  • Felt Like Home

    "Our family of 5 stayed here for 7 nights over New Years. The house is very nice, very comfortable and well stocked with what you would expect in your own house. It's close to all things that Sedona has to offer."

  • incredibly peaceful.

    "We rented the Contentment Lodge in July 2014 for three nights. In total, we had three families with ages ranging from grandparents to a twelve year old, 13 people total. We were in town for a nearby family union. The house was perfect for a big group. The home was extremely well equipped and there was nothing we came across that we missed- all the essentials were there. Cornville / Sedona area is fantastic and the lodge location was close to everything, but not to close. The name of the house is perfect. The Contentment Lodge was a great place to get away with the setting and views incredibly peaceful."

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.
