Guestbook comments from the owner
All we wanted was a relaxing secluded vacation and we got it! Thank goodness there is a well-stocked pantry so that we didn't have to drive back out to a convenience store. There are so many good things to saw about this cabin: great space, quiet, cozy, etc. The cabin is far enough away that if feels secluded, yet close enough to many adventures. We suggest taking the Grand Canyon railway from Williams to the Grand Canyon and stopping at the Safeway for groceries. The Grand Canyon Caverns was also extremely cool though a bit hokey looking from the outside. We ventured back to Williams to go hiking up the Bill Williams mountain. For sure one of the best hikes we have done. Watch out though for the bob cat! It took about 5 hours for a 6+ mile hike. Additionally, we suggest Flagstaff for a day visit - so many things to see and do. Thanks for a great visit.

We started building the 'cabin' in the spring of 2007. It was completed in the spring of 2010. We worked with the construction crew from the pouring of the footers until the roof, door, and windows were installed in Nov 2007. From that point on we were the primary 'crew'. We started building the 'cabin' in the spring of 2007. It was completed in the spring of 2010. We worked with the construction crew from the pouring of the footers until the roof, door, and windows were installed in Nov 2007. From that point on we were the primary 'crew' finishing it out, especially the tongue-in-grove pine on the ceiling, the solid pine doors, all the trim work and the kitchen. It was very much a labor of love (and hard work). The first floor has 840 sq. Ft. And the loft has 110 sq. Ft. It has two bedrooms, a bath, and a large 'great' room which contains the kitchen, the dining room and the living room. This is where the 'living' is really done. The San Francisco peaks, about 50 miles away at 13,000 ft. Are clearly visible through the huge picture window. Except for the summer months they are snow covered. We live in phoenix and drive up to the cabin usually around noon on Friday and stay until Sunday. Schedule permitting. We have stayed for a week or more at a time. We love the views, the tranquility, the creature comforts and the solitude. There are plenty of old abandoned railroad beds for hiking, biking or toy riding. The beds were constructed in 1881 when the Santa Fe built the first railroad through n. AZ. The cabin is furnished with many pieces of northern white cedar from Michigan - beds, end tables, rocking chair, settee in the loft and on the front porch. The Hugh buffalo head greets you upon entry. His name is 'Yavapai Tatonka.' this area was settled by the Yavapai Indians and Tatonka is Aavajo for buffalo. One unique aspect - this 15 acre property some 12 million years ago was a volcanic field and sat where flagstaff is today. Picacho Peak,

Daniel M. Leeper purchased this cabin in 2010

We built this cabin from the ground up including working with an architect, positioning the cabin on the 15 acre parcel on which it is situated, and finishing the cabin inside and out to suit our tastes. It was our desire to have a weekend home that was modern and comfortable yet one that retained the rustic charm of cabins first built when 'manifest destiny' drove the white man across the plains to the Pacific Ocean after the Lewis and Clark expedition in 1803-1805. We wanted a lot of wood. We wanted simple, unfinished furniture. Our preference was not to see another house around. We wanted the house to be accessible in a medical emergency which meant locating it relatively close to highway 66 (about 100 yards away) and accepting some light traffic noise. In 1987 while relocated from ft. Ord, CA, to Ft. Knox, KY, I remembered driving along i-40 and seeing Bill Williams mountain and the San Francisco peaks in the distance while driving right by Picacho butte and thinking to myself, 'What a beautiful place. I'd love to live here someday.' Well, fate brought me to Phoenix in June of 2000 and it wasn't long after that I rediscovered northern AZ and the area I had fallen in love with in 1987. The cabin is on a 15 acre parcel. We were fortunate to find this particular property because it sits very high up on the eastern side of a ridegeline that runs north and south. The views of the San Francisco Peaks, Bill Williams mountain and all the way south to Mingus mountain and Bradshaw mountain near Prescott are simply hard to find on one location. We were fortunate that the land 'perced' so a septic system could be installed and an electricity line was less than a mile away. It still cost $50k to run an electric line to the cabin.

If you're a train lover, one of the main transcontinental lines of the BNSF with over 100 trains a day is only about 3 miles away. You can hear the engines and the whistles from the cabin when the windows are open. Every night in the hot summer time it's possible to open the windows and enjoy the summer breeze hearing an occasional coyote howl or cattle moo from the cattle on the open range around the cabin. If you want to sight see you could stay at the cabin for a month making day trips to the Grand Canyon (north and south rims), up to monument valley and arches, Bryce canyon and Zion national parks, east to Winslow to the La Posada hotel designed by the first great southwest female American architect Mary Jane Coulter, to the meteor crater about 30 miles east of flagstaff, skiing on the San Francisco peaks in the winter time, gambling in Las Vegas, visiting museums, attending plays and enjoying wonderful restaurants in phoenix and Scottsdale. Nearby is Sedona with it's unique southwestern charm. Finally, there's the petrified national forest, the painted desert, Bearizona Wildlife park in Williams, riding the grand canyon railroad from Williams to the Grand Canyon, visiting peach springs with a jeep trip all the way to the west end of the Grand Canyon and seeing Havasupai falls. There's also the Wapatki national monument some 30 miles north of flagstaff on HY 89. Finally there's a 200 foot long registered and protected Petroglyth wall that the cabin caretakers, Richard and Jacque Clayton, would be delighted to show to you. As if that weren't enough, the cabin comes complete with a resident artist, Jacque Clayton. She is a very accomplished artist originally from California who would be delighted to receive a commissioned painting request from you for a portrait, landscape, birds or whatever. Richard, her husband, is a native American of mixed ancestry who has a fascinating background and wonderful stories to delight everyone about native American history.

BEAUTIFUL SCENERY

  • 5 of 5
Had a woderful time at the cabin.It was very comfortable and well stocked with everything you could think of. Was close enough to get to all the area attractions yet far enough out of town to get to enjoy the scenery and view some wildlife. If we go back with the grandkids we would absolutely stay again.

QUIET GETAWAY NEAR GRAND CANYON

  • 5 of 5
My fiance and I stayed at Dan's cabin for 3 days in early March. We were looking for a quiet, dog-friendly cabin near the Grand Canyon and definitely found it. The cabin was in a great location -- about 30-40 minutes away from the Grand Canyon and sits on the same property as another house about .5 mi away.

The cabin was clean, cozy, and had a nice little fenced yard for the dogs. It was everything we were looking for.

Owner's Response: We appreciate the kind comments. However, there is one factual error. The cabin is on a 30 acre parcel with no other structure on it. The house referred to is on another parcel and cannot be seen from the cabin.

GREAT GETAWAY DURING VACATION TIME

  • 5 of 5
This trip to Arizona was always highlighted by the return to such a beautiful and wonderful cabin. Perfectly situated in the wilderness but within great driving distance from many sights like the Grand Canyon, Meteor Crater, and Sedona National Park. My wife, our doggy and myself had such a wonderful time at a wonderful place. Hope to return soon some day!!!

VERY COMFORTABLE & EXTREMELY WELL-APPOINTED CABIN.

Very comfortable & extremely well-appointed cabin.
  • 4 of 5
We had a great stay, & enjoyed the cabin & the surrounding property very much! It was very peaceful & quiet & we had great viewing of the stars. The cabin was very well appointed & I have never seen such a well stocked kitchen & pantry in a rental! We had stopped for groceries on the way in, but if we had been stranded there for some reason, we would have been quite comfortable! I have never rented a cabin (& I have rented quite a few) that was better equipped. We did miss the internet (which we knew about going in), but our phones worked fine so that made up for the lack of internet in large part. The fenced area of the yard worked out great with our dog - she loved having a place to run around & play off-leash. We hiked around the property which has some nice views, visited Grand Canyon, toured Oak Creek and Sedona area, and toured Williams and also hiked in that area - very glad we had decided to stay a few extra nights. There was much more we would like to have done, but ran out of time! The caretakers were very friendly & helpful - meeting with us to show us around the property & were also a great source of local information. This was our first exploration of Northern Arizona, but I'm sure it won't be our last.

WONDERFUL MODERN & COZY CABIN!

Wonderful modern & cozy cabin!
  • 5 of 5
We were very impressed with the interior of the cabin and how clean and well-maintained everything was, with the bonus of it being a pet-friendly rental. The central location of the cabin allowed our family to enjoy many day trip options including the Grand Canyon, Sedona, Hoover Dam & Las Vegas, and our surprise favorite "Bearizona" right off I-70.

The owner was very gracious and flexible with our needs and requests. Anytime we called or emailed with a question, he was quick to respond.

We enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this cabin for anyone traveling with young kids and pets!

The property is ideally situated on Historic Highway 66 (AKA the 'Mother Road') in a quiet, rural location yet only 5 miles from I-40 with numerous day trips possible or to use as a 'base camp' for overnight stays in nearby locations. Nearby are the Grand Canyon (90 miles), Petrified Forest, and Painted Desert National Parks. In southern Utah there are the Bryce Canyon and Zion National Parks less than a day's drive away. In Southwest Colorado there is Mesa Verde National Park and the town of Durango (one day's drive away) with the famous Durango Silverton Railroad. In Williams (25 miles west on I-40) you can enjoy the Bearizona Wildlife drive through park and ride the Grand Canyon Railway (www.thetrain.com). East of Flagstaff (55 miles west on I-40) is the Meteor Crater and the La Posada Hotel (Winslow). North of Flagstaff is the Wapatki National Monument of ancient native American ruins and further north the famous Monument Valley, a Navajo National Park. Las Vegas is 3.5 hours to the west. Prescott is only one hour south with many historic buildings and excellent restaurants. The Phoenix metro area which includes Scottsdale is 3 hours to the south. In the cabin is a map showing the wagon train routes used in the 1800s and the cabin sits on one of the main routes that crossed through northern New Mexico and Arizona to California. In 1881 the Santa Fe railroad built one of the first transcontinental railroad lines through the area which is why all of the towns were founded in 1881. While parts of the original route have been abandoned providing excellent biking, hiking and ATV road beds, the basic route is used today by the BNSF railroad as a main transcontinental line with over 100 trains a day. The cabin is about 3 miles from that line. The cabin is located in the San Francisco Volcanic Field which is over 12 million years old. The area is very rich geogolocally with most of the mountain peaks being extinct volcanoes. The land on which the cabin sits, a 15 acre parcel, some 12 million years ago was located where Flagstaff is today. The North American Plate has moved some 50 miles to the west during that time. Sunset Crater to the east of Flagstaff is the location of the last volcanic eruption only 900 years ago. Some 50 miles to the west is the town of Peach Springs which offers jeep tours to the Canyon as well as the access road to the famous Grand Canyon Skywalk. Finally, as an item of interest, there is nothing but wilderness north of the cabin all the way to the Grand Canyon 50 miles to the north. If you hiked due north from the cabin you would intersect the Canyon at Havasupai Falls. Overall, it is an extremely interesting area with numerous sights and intriguing geography. A large relief map of the entire state of Arizona is located on the wall in the cabin for your viewing pleasure. There is even a 200 foot long ancient native American petroglyph about 10 miles away (5 miles on dirt road) that is protected but available for viewing.
