Exactly what we were looking for...

  • 5 of 5
My new husband and I rented this home for our wedding weekend and it was exactly what we were looking for. Communication with the owner was easy and convenient. The house was clean, comfortable, and beautifully appointed, we felt right at home there. So much so that I wanted to buy it! The caretaker was thoughtful and already had a fire going in the unique and stunning wood-burning fireplace on the night we arrived. The home has a stunning view of the highest peaks in AZ. It was private, but very easy to get to from the interstate. Flagstaff and Williams are just 10-20 min drive with plenty of things to do...that is, if you want to leave the house once you're been there. The claw-foot tub and shower in the master bedroom are to die for and the log-framed master bed truly added to the atmosphere. We thoroughly used the kitchen for our meals and found everything we needed easily. Thank you to the owner for sharing her amazing home, we wish it could be ours!

My favorite getaway! The views and serenity of East of the Sun West of the Moon have to be experienced. Great launching point for hiking, exploring Sedona, Flagstaff, Williams and the Grand Canyon or for doing nothing and relaxing with a great book. It is a place that always gets me centered the minute I pull up the driveway.

We were very happy with everything about the house and the location. Very clean and the photos showed the house off very well. We had great stars all of the nights. Very easy to get to the area attraction's. We have told some of our friends it they travel in the area to stay here it was great.

Our stay at this beautiful cabin was wonderful. The cabin was clean, cozy, even though there is a lot of space and the views were awesome. It was a perfect place for us to take the forest roads with our razor. We loved it.

Just amazing!

  • 5 of 5
We had a WONDERFUL time at Louisa's home. The place is beautiful, peaceful and the view is just amazing with big widows all around. The house is huge, super confortable and well organized. The beds are super comfy. We enjoyed cooking with the view of the San Francisco peaks and woke up early just for the pleasure of seeing the sunrise. It was very relaxing to come back here after hiking or visiting. From there we were able to see a lot of things: Grand Canyon, Sedona, Sunset Crater (beautiful juste before the sunset), the Lava Cave, Flagstaff and the delicious burgers of Diablo burgers, Williams where we had delicious coffee, tea and pastries at Cafe 326. As we were with our 3,5 years old daughter we also went to: Bearizona (really worth seeing), the Deers Farm (a little bit pricy but our daughter loved to feed the deers and to talk with the funny parrot).
Also, Louisa (the owner) is very kind and replies quickly whenever you have a question or need advise about things to do.
We were really sad to leave this little paradise and hope we'll come back.

Great location; very quiet!

  • 4 of 5
The house is nicely located for visits to the Grand Canyon and Flagstaff area. The Grand Canyon is about an hour and Flagstaff is only a half hour away. The location is very quiet with great views of the hills. The house is located at 7000 ft elevation, which keeps the temperatures cool all day. The nights are very cool; a coat and sweats are necessary for walking and sitting on the deck. Great for a family of four or five. Great selection of board games available for family time.
