About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths (Sleeps 7-8)

Beautiful Rocky Mountain Retreat is located halfway between Flagstaff and Williams, AZ at 7500 ft elevation surrounded by 3 secluded acres of tall Ponderosa Pines. This immaculate cabin is beautifully decorated and fully furnished with all the modern amenities. There are 2 bathrooms, two queen-size bedrooms, and a third room with a bunk bed with a full-size on the bottom and twin on top. There is also a pull-out queen sofa-bed. The kitchen is fully equipped with all the modern appliances you could need and full sets of serving and cooking utensils for entertaining. Free wireless internet is available (hopefully for fun not work :-). There is also a full-size washer and dryer. Hair dryers, curling irons and basic toiletries are included. There are plenty of cozy pillows and blankets . You can curl up in front of the stone fireplace and watch the wildlife outside. Rocky Mountain Retreat has all the comforts of home.

Outside the Cabin: The large wraparound deck is great for outdoor family meals. Then relax with some marshmallows around the campfire or watch the swaying trees or bright stars as you lay in the hammock. Children will love the tree house with slide and hammock, swing sets, horseshoes, or playing basketball in front of the 2-car garage. There is a huge selection of board games, videos and DVDs as well as 3 satellite TVs. Nearby hiking and off-roading trails abound. The Grand Canyon Deer Farm/Petting Zoo and Oak Hill Snowplay area (in winter), and Bearizona are only minutes away. There are several small lakes nearby, as well as the Lava Cave and breath-taking Sycamore Canyon hiking/rock climbing area. The area around our cabin is abundant with elk.

The Area: Rocky Mountain Retreat offers a true sense of being away from it all, yet the town of and Flagstaff with over 200 restaurants, great night life and shopping is only 20 mins away. The historic Route 66 town of Williams is only 10 mins away, where you can catch the Grand Canyon Railway or Polar Express (in winter). The Grand Canyon is a 60 min drive, and fantastic Oak Creek Canyon/ Sedona is about 45 mins. There are two downhill ski resorts 30 and 45 mins away and a cross country ski trail just a couple minutes away. Snowbowl resort is at 11,500 ft elevation and offers 32 trails of great skiing/snowboarding; in the summer you can take the skyride to the top for panoramic views that include the Grand Canyon, and fantastic hiking. Rocky Mountain Retreat has something for everyone. Why stay in a hotel room or rent a house in a subdivision when you can create the special memories of a real get-away vacation in the cool pines at Rocky Mountain Retreat!

About Dawn

My husband and I have always loved the mountains. He grew up in the city (Chicago), but I grew up in rural California camping in Yosemite most weekends with my parents, wonderful memories... We wanted to own a special mountain retreat where we could build our family memories while our kids were still young (the above picture is 13 years after we built our cabin ;). We love our time in the woods and our cabin has become very special to our family. We truly enjoy sharing our cabin with our guests.

Dawn purchased this cabin in 1999

Why Dawn chose Arizona

We searched a lot of mountain areas and decided that the Flagstaff area had the most to offer - beautiful pine tree covered mountains, close access to skiing, the Grand Canyon and Sedona, a great historic town with tons of restaurants and shopping, and temperatures 20-25 degrees cooler than Phoenix. The town of Flagstaff has a wonderful mix of small-town quaintness and great energy from the young university population. There are fantastic family-owned restaurants, coffee shops and boutiques, as well as all the convenient chain stores we're used to. We knew we wanted acreage with lots of trees (we have enough of 'subdivision life' in Phoenix). We found some beautiful land just 20 mins outside Flagstaff and built our cabin. It was a dream come true for us. We hope your family enjoys this peaceful getaway as much as we have!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We did have a great stay at Rocky Mountain Retreat. It was very comfortable and we had everything we needed. We especially loved the outdoor fire pit. We had a campfire in the snow and made snowmen at night. The kids thought that was really fun! If we come back to Arizona we will definitely stay again and we are telling our friends. Happy New year!

Wooded Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Spring vacation brings travels with our grandsons and we are always looking for accommodations that look like fun for them. This year we wanted to visit the Grand Canyon and Route 66 and when pulling up all the choices for the area we were impressed with all the outside activities here. We were not disappointment as our 9 year old grandson loved the basketball hoop and the tree fort!

For me I'm looking at the functionality of the cabin and the comfort level that it promises. Again, we were very pleased with the layout of the cabin and the wrap around porch that we would have gotten more use out of if the weather and wind had cooperated.

The kitchen was well stocked with cooking and eating equipment. They also had some spices and coffee available. She also had a tray of goodies that we munched on and coming in late was really appreciated.

The outside also had a fire pit that we were able to enjoy. You need to call the fire department first to see if it is permitted to use. You can buy wood locally and there is plenty of smaller branches to get the fire started. Kids had a blast and of course we had some-mores.

There is also plenty of wild life to view through the windows. We saw mule deer, western blue bird and the Albert Squirrel. Can't miss him with the tufted ears.

Walking up the hill you can make it to the top of the mountain in about 5 minutes. There is one tree with a metal sign that says behind this sign is National Park land. The boys enjoyed the hikes and the walkies-talkie from the cabin made the walk extra fun.

On the down side the internet is really slow. My son-in-law ended up driving to Flagstaff to log into his conference call and my husband to download work information. Mobil phones also did not work except for messaging. As soon as we left the cabin we were able to make and receive calls.

Lots to see and do in the area and Dawn has provided binders with lots of information which was a big help. All in all the kids and adults had a great time and you can work around the internet issue if you have to.

For groceries there are the bigger stores in Flagstaff and Williams (Safeway). There is also the little corner grocery store that has take out and a few essentials including wine.

So all in all it is a cute little cabin in a wooded area that will let you put up your feet after a day of travel and sightseeing.

Comfortable, warm, quiet, beautiful, easy to find.

Tranquility, solotude, and the smell of pines.
