A LOG CABIN IN THE PINES, BY KAIBAB FOREST. HISTORICAL, SMALL & QUIET

Parks Cabin Rental Photos and Description

1 room, queen bed. Perfect for 2.

The main exit to the Grand Canyon is just 13 miles down the freeway or you can use a 7 mile stretch of Old 66 then get on the freeway at the Deer Farm exit. Sedona is about an hours drive from here. With the canyon to the west, Sedona to the south/east and Flagstaff to the direct east this little cabin is in an ideal spot. If you go to Sedona, Jerome would be a nice addition to your trip. At the first entrance to Williams you will see the turn off to Bearizona, you can't miss that if you are in the area. Roger's Cabin is clean and quiet sitting right on the edge of the Kaibab National Forest. Also it's non-smoking and pet friendly. If you are in northern Arizona for hunting in area 7 west, fishing in the lakes near Williams, hiking Kendrick Peak or just enjoy walking, you won't be disappointed by the location. In the past 4 years we've not had a disappointed guest at all.

Suitability:
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters
  • pets considered
  • Singles
  • non smoking only
  • Low Allergen Environment
Guestbook comments from the manager
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.

Andy & I (Linda) were high school sweet hearts, but not according to my parents. For over 3 years we cruised the streets of Holbrook, Az which was a town on Old Route 66. I think my parents had radar set up for a white, souped up, 1962 Ford pick up. Tucked up against Andy we laughed & dodged their tan Chrysler Imperial as much as possible.

In 1966 my Daddy had a 'chat' with Andy & his dad. Since I didn't know about the 'chat' I just thought I had suddenly been dumped. I went off to college & Andy got married.

In 1997 Andy went on a search & rescue mission. Here I was, right here in this old cabin where I had been since 1983. He then told me about 'the chat' So I still got to marry the boy who stole my heart at a tender young age, just a few years & bumps in the road later. Our wedding was in Holbrook, where else?

Both of our Mother's were still alive when we starting dating, out in broad daylight with no sneaking around. My Mother loved Andy & apologized many times for the way they treated him.

Alls well that ends well.

Andy or Linda Pickett purchased this cabin in 1983

When I first saw these old cabins I was in love. I had grown up in a remote part of the Navajo res. because Daddy had a trading post out there. So living in town was never really something I wanted to do. Andy's roots go back to a ranch 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.

I wish these walls could talk.

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 guests, you would LOVE this place. Actually for us it's not a 'place' it's a life style we were born for.

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.

GREAT SPOT WITH WONDERFUL PEOPLE

  • 5 of 5
Roger's cabin is a wonderful little spot on the edge of the national forest. We spent three quiet, cozy nights there, slept soundly, and had breakfast each morning out in a sunny spot in the forest. It was wonderful and clean; small but nicely furnished and just right if a cozy intimate space is what you're looking for. Also the owners are special people and we enjoyed talking with them very much as they taught us about the history of the area and suggested places to explore. They are generous and kind people. Thanks very much.

GREAT LITTLE GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
I love to camp but haven't been able to do it at all this year. Now the weather is a little too cold at night to do any traditional tent camping, so my husband and I were looking for a nice, rustic cabin that still had the upside of camping but without waking up in a freezing tent. This is definitely the place.

Coming from Phoenix, we tried to get out of town as soon as we could but, unfortunately, we weren't able to get to our destination before dark. I had told Linda this beforehand and she was very accommodating, providing precise directions so we wouldn't get lost in the dark and in an unfamiliar place. There is a heater in the cabin and it was toasty warm when we arrived, despite the temperature having dropped into the low 40's. There is a very nice fire pit that we immediately lit up, and the cabin itself is exactly as advertised. There were even some things that were surprisingly better than we thought they would be. There is a sufficient amount of flatware and plates/bowls to accommodate 2 people, in addition to plenty of towels and coffee, tea, sugar, salt & pepper, etc. It's not fancy, but doesn't need to be. The décor is cute, and there a few neat little things such as a rake head used as hooks to hold the spatulas and other cooking utensils. We brought our camping box that contains everything necessary to cook and eat, but found we put more than half of the stuff back in the car. There is a BBQ and we brought our camp stove, but we did most of our cooking on the grate over the fire pit (we had brought a couple of cast iron pans.)

The location is a bit different than we were expecting but we weren't disappointed. The general store is a short walk away and the cabin is close to the intersection of two roads, one of which seems to be traveled frequently, but there are no street lights and it is quiet. There's also a train that can be heard going by pretty often, but once you're inside the cabin it's not disturbing at all. The national forest is literally just a step outside and if you wanted to, you could walk forever. After a short exploration I came across an abandoned portion of what was once Route 66 between 1931 to 1941. Pretty cool stuff.

Andy and Linda are very friendly but know enough to allow their guests privacy. We will definitely return anytime we need a nice reprieve. Hopefully, we can find others to come with us in the future so we can try out the bunkhouse too.

QUIET, CLEAN AND WELL MAINTAINED COZY CABIN.

  • 5 of 5
Cal and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Roger's Cabin. It was cozy, clean and well supplied. The location was fantastic with all of our daily sight-seeing trips during our 7 day stay. Being right at the edge of the National forest was a plus because the deer and elk also liked the area. The owners, Andy and Linda, were very kind and hospitable and very helpful. We definitely would stay again when in the area.

Roger's Cabin is located near an old section of Route 66 north of I-40 between Flagstaff & Williams. This rustic 100 yr. old cabin provides a hard to find relaxing atmosphere that money can't buy.

We are 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. If you want do visit Sedona you would love the drive from here, down through Oak Creek Canyon. This area is very 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 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. There is a fire pit to sit around & enjoy the night sky.

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.

We have done our best to keep the authenticity of this old cabin while adding modern conveniences, like running water & electricity.

In the summer we keep bird feeders out to accommodate the many colors & species that are protected by a close by bird sanctuary.

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. 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 . . .
