Overview

Photos and Description of this Parks holiday cabin

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 6-8

A gorgeous A-frame cabin on 2.5-acres is located in Parks just off Historic Route 66 between Flagstaff and Williams (Gateway to the Grand Canyon). Two sides of the property border the Kaibab National Forrest. It is an excellent retreat from the heat in the summer and snow play in the winter. Enjoy historic downtown Flagstaff and home of NAU just 17 miles away. The drive to the Grand Canyon is less than one hour. Points of interest within 30 minute drive are Sedona, Oak Creek Canyon & Slide Rock State Park, Williams, Kaibab Lake, Bearizona, and Arizona Snowbowl ski lodge. Places to see in the Parks area include the Lava Tube Caves, Sycamore Canyon, Key Hole Sink, Deer Farm and Oak Hill Snow Play Area. There are many great quad and dirt bike trails. Other activities include hiking, mountain biking, fishing, hunting, golfing, skiing, dinning, shopping, sightseeing and star gazing.

Description of the Cabin: Our 2-story cabin is 2035 sq. ft. with 3 bedrooms (2 master bedrooms) with beds for 7 people. A futon and two hide-away single beds can be used for maximum occupancy of 10. The cabin is beautifully decorated in a Cowboy & Indian theme and Southwest art. The lower master suite has a queen bed, satellite TV, private deck facing the forest and a private bathroom. The 2nd story master bedroom has a king size bed. The 3rd bedroom has a bunk bed and single twin. The 2nd bathroom is on the upper level. The loft is a great play area for children with a TV for video games, toys and board games. The Loft has a futon that converts into a standard size bed with an additional vanity sink. The living area has leather furniture, satellite TV and DVD player. The dining area has a bay window looking over the pines, comfortably seats 8 but will hold 10 people. The kitchen is well equipped with service for 10. The laundry room has a washer and dryer. The large deck has patio furniture, gas heater and gas grill.

On-Site Amenities: A large circular driveway provides room a RV or toy hauler. There is an awesome play ground fort for the little ones and a fire pit perfect for toasting marshmallows under the stars. Special detail went into the décor such as hand carved bear cubs climbing a pole that supports the loft, Hopi Indian and South American one-of-kind art pieces. Oak Hill Snow Play Area (1 mile away) has 2 main sledding areas. Directly across the street (Route 66) is Key Hole Sink where you can see petroglyph drawings. The Deer Farm (2 miles away) is perfect for the little ones. Bearizona and Kaibab Lake is 8 miles away. This is the kind of vacation retreat you will come back to again and again.

Activities and Attractions: Historical Flagstaff has many multi-cultural restaurants, great shopping and art galleries. Lowell’s Observatory and Meteor Creator are near Flagstaff. During the winter months there is downhill skiing at Snowbowl. From spring to fall, take a ride to Sedona's Red Rock Canyon and Oak Creek Canyon. While there, hop on a Pink Jeep Tour or Hot Air Balloon ride over some of the most beautiful and unique scenery in our country. During the summer, pack a cooler and enjoy a day at Slide Rock State Park where kids slide along the rocks and adults’ sunbath or catch up on their reading while lounging on the many levels of flat rock formations along the creek. In less than one hour you can be at the Grand Canyon hiking or riding a mule to Indian Gardens. The city of Williams has the Grand Canyon Railway featuring the Polar Express during the winter months, many fun restaurants, an indoor skate board park and Native American shopping

About Gina Day

Hello! My name is Gina and I love to travel. With that said, I try to stock our cabin home with just about everything you need to make your trip easy, fun and relaxing. I keep active and enjoy new experiences when I travel so I provide lists of things to do or place to see in the surrounding towns for our renters. Renters from out of state or the country especially appreciate this as it helps them make the most of their time in northern Arizona. Even Arizonians appreciate this because they don’t realize how much there is to do up here and it is constantly changing and improving.

I also love to cook so I keep the kitchen stocked with items to simplify meal preparations so you can enjoy more time having fun and relaxing but still enjoy a home cooked meal.

Our family keeps busy in the city so when we come up to the cabin, we unplug and reconnect with each other. For this reason, do not have Wi-Fi but we do have satellite TV, DVDs and board games for all ages.

Gina Day purchased this cabin in 2003

Why Gina Day chose Arizona

We built this cabin with love and it took 2.5 years. We completed it in 2006 and we are constantly making improvements. We wanted a place to take our children so we could relax and enjoy all the natural beauty of northern Arizona. We love to snow ski and board and have hiked the Grand Canyon to Phantom Ranch, Indian Gardens and from south rim to north rim countless times.

We also love hanging out in historical down town Flagstaff...there is always something going on. Flagstaff is clean, safe and has unique and wonderful restaurants and shops to visit. We also enjoy Williams for the same reasons. We decided to rent out our cabin because we wanted to share all this with others so they would have a nice place to take their family and friends at the best possible price.

Although we are in the Kaibab National Forest (it really is our back yard), and because of our exact location, you can quickly and easily drive in any direction and find fun and adventure. Our cabin sits at 7,000 feet so if it snows in Flagstaff, it will snow on our property. So many renters have told us a stay at our cabin was the first time their children played in snow. Children and adults love this place...it is MAGICAL!

What makes this cabin unique

What makes our cabin so unique is the location. We are minutes to Interstate 40 and walking distance to Historical Route 66. The town of Parks and Williams will remind you of the Disney movie “Cars”, right down to the historical 76 Station that serves up great breakfast burritos and sandwiches.

The national forest service gave us permission to install a gate on their fence so you may easily walk into the Kaibab National Forest and if you look close enough, you may find horney toads. They really do look like miniature dinosaurs! Elk and deer are a common site while sitting on the deck or driving through town, especially at dusk.

The cabin is clean and decorated with local art and comfortable furniture so guests feel as if they are somewhere special. I can only assume all this explains our repeat clientele base and we feel blessed they choose to return to our cabin.

Beautiful hideaway!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is beautiful! The home is secluded somewhat within the national forest. It was perfect for my family for the week to take daily adventures to the Grand Canyon, Sedona, old ruins and other state/national parks! Great access to grocery and restaurants in nearby towns but far enough away to feel like a getaway! We loved it!

We have stayed at this cabin a few different times now and it is by far our favorite! We rent cabins about 3 times per year in different areas of the state. Very clean, cozy, comfortable beds. Everything you need or want is is here. Well stocked kitchen. Super clean, well maintained, The owner is the best too. Good communication. I would recommend to everyone. Every time we have stayed here we have been fortunate to see Elk or deer . Love love love this place!

The cabin was a great rustic getaway during NAU Family Weekend for our families. It gave our families a place to unwind after a busy day of school events. Thanks so much.

Beautiful cabin in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We booked this cabin as a part of our dream family vacation to Arizona and the Grand Canyon. The location was perfect for our plans to explore the area. We spent one day at the Grand Canyon South Rim and then explored all the other local great National Parks, Williams and Flagstaff. We especially enjoyed coming back to this cabin in the evening to relax. The cabin is well supplied and had everything we needed. We felt safe and secluded, as the cabin is nicely located out of the way next to the forest land.
