Why Jennifer Morris chose Canyon Country & Northeast

The charm of the classic downtown house and location can't be beat! We love the small town feel and expanse of the outdoors at 7000 feet! We ski, hike, cycle, boat . . . if its outside, we are doing it!

Fantastic Family Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the charm of this house. It was very tastefully decorated and well appointed. The location was fantastic. You felt as if you were still in the forest, but you're in town. The house is walking distance to the downtown area, which makes it very nice. Jennifer was fantastic to work with and was really accommodating when one of our girls became sick. I would highly recommend this house if visiting Flagstaff. We'll be staying here again, I am sure!

Sweet home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Our family and dogs stayed two nights in order to attend the Made in the Shade Beer Festival. The house was very comfortable, clean, and had everything we needed for our brief stay. The property is dog friendly and the yard is fenced, though the fence is short in some places so we did not leave our dogs out unsupervised. We will definitely rent this property again when we return to Flagstaff!

Very comfortable, clean and very well equipped house next to downtown Flagstaff but in a quirky setting that makes you feel you are in the forest. I could not have been happier
