We are located near an old section of Route 66 north of I-40 between Flagstaff & Williams. This rustic 100 yr. old + cabin, we call Roger's Cabin, provides a relaxing atmosphere you can't find and money can't buy in the city.
We are close to the Grand Canyon, hiking, a lava tube, historic downtown Williams & Flagstaff and Bearizona. Bearizona is not a zoo, it's a small Yellow Stone where even us big kids can spend a day. They have a web site and Face Book Account for you to get a feeling of what it would be like to visit. Even if you want do visit Sedona you would love the drive from here, down through Oak Creek Canyon and back.
Whether you sit around the fire in the summer, play in the snow in the winter or need a warm place to relax at the end of a hunt, this cozy little cabin is an inviting place to hang your hat.
You can see that the logs were hand cut with an axe for the door and windows. There are old dates carved in the logs and painted over. At one time there were six or seven of these little 'effenciency' cabins, outhouses, and one public shower. All of the cabins have been torn down but two. Dubbed after a very good friend of ours, Roger, who rented it for several years, this little one room cabin has it's own 3/4 bath and a little kitchen area. It has a charcoal BBQ grill in place of a cook stove. The queen bed has a memory foam topper, and we furnish all the linens.
It sits right on the forest line fence, so quiet evenings are often enhanced with the passing of a herd of elk as they graze along moving to the water hole on the other side of Old 66.
About us; Andy was born in northern Arizona, I moved here from New Mexico when I was seven. So we grew up 'dragging' the main streets of Old 66, cruising by the Wigwam Motel and taking the Petrified Forest for granted. Back then we just knew that the seldom traveled turn off to the Painted Desert/Petrified Forest was surely built exclusively for drag racing. We thought everyone knew that but the guys in the cars with stars on the doors thought something else.
Andy & I started dating while I was still in high school. But like just about every young girl, I had a dad who thought Andy was too old, too wild ( well he sort of was ) and too everything for his daughter. So after 4 years of trying to change his opinion we gave up on 'us.' But in 1997 Andy found me right here where I had been since 1984, in this old log cabin.
So here we are, living our dream in a place that seems to be forgotten by time. Just happy to be watching for elk across the fence, enjoying a crystal clear night sky and sitting on the porch listening to the sound of nothing.
We are proud of Arizona, love it's history and are happy to share our state with our guests from all over the world.
This cabin is rustic, efficient and REAL. This piece of American history we call Roger's Cabin is not a place, it's an experience.
