About Andy or Linda Pickett

Andy & I Linda were high school sweet hearts, but not approved of by her parents. For over 3 years they cruised the streets of Holbrook, Az which was a town on Old Route 66. Apparently her parents had radar zeroed in on Andy's white, souped up, 1962 Ford pick up. Tucked up nest to Andy, they played the radio, cruised main street, hung out with friends, laughed & dodged her dad's 1966 Chrysler Imperial.

In her senior year of H.S. her dad had a 'chat' with Andy & Andy's dad. Linda didn't know about the 'chat' so for 30 years she thought the was suddenly been dumped. She went off to college & Andy got married.

In 1997 Andy went on a search & rescue mission. So here she was, right here in this old cabin where she had been since 1983. That's when Andy told her about 'the chat' So eventually she still got to marry the boy who stole my heart at a tender young age of 15. With a few years & bumps in the road they said their vows in the same town they grew up in. Andy's mother was unable to attend their wedding, but Linda's (very sorry & appologetic) mother was among the guests.

Alls well that ends well.

Andy or Linda Pickett purchased this cabin in 1983

Why Andy or Linda Pickett chose Parks

When Linda first saw these old cabins she loved it. She had grown up in a remote part of the Navajo res. because her dad had a trading post out there. So living in town was never really something she wanted to do. Andy's roots go back to an old ranching area down in Young at the bottom of the Mogollon rim. It wasn't hard to talk him living here full time once he retired from Salt River Project.

If only these walls could talk.

What makes this cabin unique

This little log cabin is about as close to a true western, Arizona adventure as you can ever get. Just like 'back in the day' there isn't a TV. You won't have time for it, there is too much to see and do right here in an hours drive west, east or south from here.

If you like modern glass 'n brass, this isn't your style. However, for the folks who like quiet, nature, maybe evening elk grazing through, you would LOVE this place. Although it's not really a 'place' it's an Arizona experience.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have wanted to stay in a log cagin in the woods for a long time, this little cabin is perfect and just what we expected. Warm & cozy, very comfy queen bed and we LOVED the quiet star lit nights.

Just an excellent western experience. We also loved the Pine Country cafe in Williams.

The perfect pick for us. Exactly as described.

  • 5 of 5

Fist know that this small cabin is exactly as it is advertised. One room with a comfortable queen bed, toilet, shower, sink, bar fridge, microwave, table and two chairs. A small sitting porch with a table and a two chairs, charcoal bbq and our favorite a well built fire pit. A small neighborhood General Store is within 100 yards and is staffed by very friendly people, some on the clock and some just visiting.

The location was perfect, about 14 miles to Williams, 11 miles to the entrance to the Grand Canyon, and Flagstaff is just 20 minutes east.

Clean. Let me repeat that, Clean. This little gem was as neat as a pin and is obviously always kept in this condition. The owners were out of town during our stay but are normally on the property. They provided us a cell number to call in case of any problems. It wasn't needed.

We're already planning our next visit but will be bringing a larger group and hope to be able to rent one of the other cabins on the property.

If small, clean and perfectly located is what you want. This is the place.

Thanks again for helping us have one of the most memorable vacations we've ever had.

Perfect Base Cap

  • 5 of 5

The description of this "GEM" couldn't have been any more accurate. Upon arrival we found exactly what we wanted and what was in the description. This was the perfect base camp for our Grand Canyon vacation. Easy to find, centrally located, priced right, simple appointments, classy owners and comfortable bed. What more could one ask for. We loved our stay and are already talking about our NEXT visit to the area. Thanks for a great week!

Perfect little cabin

  • 5 of 5

This Route 66 cabin is the perfect stay. Very clean and tastefully decorated. About 20 minutes to downtown Flagstaff and an hour from Grand Canyon. Surrounded by woods but conveniently walkable to the sandwich shop on the corner. It is situated on the property of the owners and still feels very private. Thanks we really enjoyed our time in the cozy cabin!

Cozy and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Had a great two-night stay at Roger's Cabin. Cabin is definitely small (one small room plus a bathroom) but cozy and comfortable.

Linda and Andy were friendly and welcoming without being intrusive.

Easy to find with their directions and very close to the highway. A little over an hour to the grand canyon, and reasonably close to WIlliams for groceries etc. we cooked out on the (Weber) grill both nights and had delicious sunset dinners.

My only complaint is that the cabin is not as isolated as I had expected. it's in a cluster of cabins and these are even close to another backyard. The forest on one side of the cabin extends quite a ways, but the view out the front door is less exciting.

All that said, I was very happy with my stay and would definitely do so again.

Remote Location Small Cabin

  • 2 of 5

Winter not quite over during our stay and despite small size of cabin the one space heater did not keep the place warm enough. No internet or phone were drawbacks. Not enough room for 2 people. Price, however, was right. And we were easily able to get to places on our list. Owners not too visible or accessible but place was clean and ready for us, despite some confusion on caretaker's part about whether we had cancelled. Would likely not stay there again.

This rustic 95 yr. old cabin provides a relaxing atmosphere.

It;s fairly close to the Grand Canyon, hiking, a lava tube, historic downtown Williams, Flagstaff & Bearizona. Within walking distance is the historic Parks in the Pines store & Deli. & an original section of old Rte. 66 If you want do visit Sedona you would love the drive from here and down through Oak Creek Canyon as it is centrally located for this part of Arizona.

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 kick off your boots and hang your hat.

You can see the log walls 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 taken down except two. Dubbed after a very good friend, Roger B., who rented it for several years, this little one room cabin has it's own 3/4 bathroom and small kitchen area. On site is acharcoal BBQ & fire ring. The queen bed has a memory foam topper along with all the linens.

It sits right next to 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.

Andy & Linda are proud of Arizona, love it's history and are happy to share the information with guests from all over the world.

"Roger's Cabin" is rustic, efficient and REAL. It's a piece of American history that is not a place, it's an experience that time left behind.

Notes:
This little cabin is not set up for long term rental, we have had a few requests for that but prefer not to. The firewood is provided by the local Ponderosa Pine tree department just across the fence. There are seasons when outdoor fire is not permitted by the forest service, it will be posted. Other than that there is no restrictions. We provide coffee, sugar, tea, salt, pepper and some basic spices. There desposable plates and also the real deal plates, cups, dinnerware etc. Also there is a slow cooker in there. If you need more than that we will try to provide it for you. Plenty of parking in front of the cabin, you just might want to watch for the sap from the trees. The shade is nice, but . . .
