vacation rental description

Located in the cool pines of Northern Arizona, We are near Grand Canyon, Grand Canyon Railway, Bearizona, Sedona, Oak Creek, Montezuma's Castle & Cliff Castle Casino. The Petrified Forest & Painted desert is about a 2 hour drive. Ideal for family retreats, a couple's romantic week-end, or hunters who don't want to set up camp. It's all set up for you.

Our cabins are about 100 years old with plenty of rustic character. We can offer a soothing atmosphere not provided in the city limits. We are in Parks, Az. which is 1/2 way between Flagstaff & Williams.

Quite often we see elk in the early evening summer days, so we walk quietly & watch for them. You will be in awe looking at the clear night skies, the scent of fresh air, & the far away sound of frogs in a pond. So many things the busy city hotels can't offer or sell. Please take time to hear the sound of silence on a clear moonlit sky.

About the Bunk House: You will enjoy this quiet, peaceful old shot gun cabin we call 'The Bunk House' Built in the early 1900's out of railroad ties milled in Flagstaff, it is now a refreshing escape from today's fast pace. While making it comfortable for our guests we have also preserved the rugged atmosphere. A stay in this rustic old cabin is a great way to enhance your Arizona experience. We have been here since 1984 but didn't convert the Bunk House into a vacation cabin until 2008. We simply put our family heirlooms in there for decor. It will take you back in time. We are so far out in the country that we have to haul our water from a local well. The clean air & quiet atmosphere makes it worth it. (yes we do have running, hot water for your convenience ) But please conserve given that our 'well' is a truck. In addition to The Bunk House, for larger groups we have opened up 'Roger's Cabin' as a spare bedroom. It has a queen bed & bathroom. A stones throw from the Bunk House.

About the area: We are fortunate enough to have national forest on the north & east side of our property. In the summer there is usually a herd of elk that come in to graze, it's an awesome sight . We are about an hour from the Grand Canyon & about 90 min. from the Petrified Forest. We are located in a central spot for a lot of northern Arizona sights. In Flagstaff is the Lowell Observatory & Northern Arizona Museum. Sedona & Oak Creek Canyon is about a 45 min. drive. The Bunk House is not 100% isolated, a cabin like that is hard to find. But it's out in the country.

We love to share our state with you so please feel free to ask any questions about any sites in the area. We live on site & love having the world come to us by way of our many versatile guests.

If you are lucky enough to spot a small herd of elk across the fence, please don't chase after them. Believe it or not we've had that happen & they spooked so bad that we didn't see them for the rest of the summer. Move as little as possible & they will hang around to graze.

Call for any questions you might have about the area or the Bunk House.

  • Notes
    • The Bunk House has a convection oven, slow cooker,waffle maker, coffee maker & microwave. There are some cast iron skillets, pans and microwaveable casserole dishes. However there is no actual stove. We furnish a vacuum and a few cleaning supplies for your convenience. We also provide real dishes if you prefer them over paper & plastic. There is a picnic table out side for your use. You might want to bring an old sheet or a table clothe to sit on & cover the table because it sits under a large pine tree which drips sap & pitch. Also, while the shade is nice for your car you won't like the 'by-products' of a large ponderosa in the warm summer months. Both cabins are heated with electricity & cooled with an open window. At 7,200 ft we've never needed a cooler. Kaibab forest is on the north & east sides of our property so you don't have to drive to get into the forest.

Everything you'd expect from a log cabin!

Review submitted: December 14, 2013   Date of arrival: October 25, 2013

We were looking for an authentic log cabin to stay in while we explored the Grand Canyon. We weren't disappointed! Loved cooking our breakfast and dinner on the barbecue. Beautiful scenery to wake up to.

2 hour drive to the Grand Canyon made it perfect base. That huge bed is so comfy too!

Linda very thoughtful and helpful before and during our stay. Would love to come again!
