Sweet Getaway House Near All the Best Arizona Has to Offer

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6) Mountain Views

Dream getaway cabin/house with incredible views close to the best Arizona has to offer. The 3 acre property borders the Kaibab National Forest and is home to the highest remaining density and distribution of old growth ponderosa pines in the Southwest. A gorgeous view of the San Francisco Peaks and Snowbowl is seen from the front deck and living room and a perfect view of Mt. Kendrick from the yard. This high-country retreat is fully connected with wi-fi, direct -TV with HBO on a large flat screen tv, and cell-phone reception on Verizon or forward your calls to the land line. Peace, quiet and solitude is built-in or take a short drive to: Flagstaff (30min) with it’s great college-town vibe, shopping and nightlife; Sedona (45min) with the stunning beauty of the red rocks, Oak Creek and art galleries; or Williams, (30min) the gateway to the Grand Canyon with it’s old-school Route 66 charm. Just minutes off of I-40 and only 1 hour to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, glimpses of which can be seen up a hill a 10 min hike from the front door.

The house has a huge king size bed in the lower main bedroom and a queen in the upstairs loft. There is cushy queen blow up mattress for extra sleepers. There are 2 full private bathrooms one upstairs and one down. The kitchen is really nice, relaxing to cook in and fully stocked with everything a home chef would desire. Toss a ball with your kids in the yard or sprawl out on the comfortable southwest furniture in front of the wood-burning stove and enjoy the view. Cozy and romantic yet spacious enough for 2+ couples or a size-able family.

Nature is poetry here. Fields of wildflowers in the summer and magical snow in the winter. The wildlife is bountiful: herds of elk and mule deer are seen roaming the meadows most every evening. It is a birders paradise- one afternoon brought 17 different birds to the feeder. Some of Arizona’s best day hikes are a short drive away. There are many things to do in the area including the Historic Grand Canyon Railway, Bearizona, the Grand Canyon Deer Farm, Snow Bowl, Lowell Observatory, N. Arizona Nordic Center, Elk Ridge Sledding Area, Sedona Pink Jeep Tours and a lot more. Stay here and unwind with the fresh mountain air and spectacular views or make it an exceptional base camp for fun and adventure!

We enjoyed our 9 days at Peter's cabin, very comfortable,everything we needed for for a unforgetable hunt except any deer. WE enjoyed sitting on the deck and taken in the beautiful and scenic view of the mountains and forest. Maybe next year

Quiet, nature surrounds you, Elk, Mule deer & jackrabbits we’re everywhere and the VIEW is amazing!

  • 4 of 5

This was our favorite house during our trip (we stayed in two & the other was bigger, professionally decorated and managed, with spa tubs & a hot tub).

But this sweet little getaway house was AWESOME!

And did I mention the VIEW? SPECTACULAR!!

While I realize you should expect some critters when you are in the woods....there was a bit of a spider issue. Only other thing the owner could do to provide a better experience would be better, more detailed instructions to find it. We arrived in the dark and it was hard to tell which Home was ours.

Thanks Peter, Dana & family for allowing us to stay in your home! It is indeed SWEET! :-)

Off the beaten path and rough around the edges.

  • 3 of 5

We picked this Home Away house based on reviews as we had with our other HomeAway rentals. Unfortunately this one did not meet our expectations. After paying our final payment the owner sent us an info sheet on the house that if we had read before hand probably would have dissuaded us from renting this property. But we went in with an open mind and determined to make the best of it. The main reason we picked this property was it's location close to Grand Canyon and other neighboring attractions. What we didn't realize was that several of the roads surrounding the property were deemed "primitive" roads and were very rough- especially towards the end of our stay. The cabin itself could use a deep clean and refresh. Several items were showing wear, broken closet and blind in main bedroom, torn pillows and dirty area rugs. Cobwebs and dust covered a lot of the house. We were staying during a week of record heat and really missed having a/c in the house. Fans did not do much good until til very late/early when the temps came down. When we arrived the windows had been opened, but this just highlighted the bug problem in this area of the woods. every manner of flying insect found it's way into the cabin and we spent the week fighting them all. The house has a water pump the shut off half a dozen times sometimes mid shower, every though we took them sparingly. Things that I think other travelers should know before booking this property. No garbage service- we hauled trash out every day to where ever we were going. The property sits on a free range of sorts, dealing with cows in the road was a daily occurrence. We did not have phone service with ATT - so our only connection with the outside world was through the house wifi, which was severely limited and very slow. Not a fault of the cabin, but there was also fires burning on the mountain which made for hazy days so views were obscured.

The surrounding area is beautiful and the neighbors we met were met were helpful and friendly. We had fun at the Grand Canyon and the other places we visited.

Owner's Response: Sorry to hear your expectations were not met. Some points of fact though- it is professionally cleaned after every guest, the road to the property and the nearby roads are graded/maintained by the county, it is not on open range but strays sometimes happen, there is a land line available for unlimited guest use, we have the best available satellite internet for the area, there are screens on all the windows, occasional power outages occur which would shut off the water pump but the chances that it would happen while showering are very, very slim, there is a 50 gallon bin for guest trash and the woods do, in fact, contain some insects.
