The summers are high 70's-mid 80's with monsoons in the afternoon. Night temps drop into the 50's. Fall is fantastic, low 70's with temperatures dropping at night.

About The Owner

Brian and Louisa after a snowmobile ride!

Brian milled all the wood for the house, a true piece of craftsmanship.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Why The Owner chose Parks

This area is beautiful and the feeling that you have the whole planet to yourself is right out the door. You can watch the sun and moon rise and set. Are you into astronomy? This is the place for you!!!

What makes this house unique

The best part about this place are the views! Watching the sunrise, moonrise, and sunsets are fantastic. A common statement from our guest's is, ''your photos don't do our house/property justice.'

The wildlife here is equally as grand. On any given day you may see elk, antelope, eagles, blue herons, hawk, coyotes, and fox.

Because it adjoins forest service land you can cross country ski, snowmobile, hike right off the property.

Babysitter/nanny on site with a degree in child dev., CPR and First aid certified. Go out to dinner and enjoy yourself!

Fantastic place to stay

We were very happy with everything about the house and the location. Very clean and the photos showed the house off very well. We had great stars all of the nights. Very easy to get to the area attraction's. We have told some of our friends it they travel in the area to stay here it was great.

Great excape

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at this beautiful cabin was wonderful. The cabin was clean, cozy, even though there is a lot of space and the views were awesome. It was a perfect place for us to take the forest roads with our razor. We loved it.

Just amazing!

  • 5 of 5
We had a WONDERFUL time at Louisa's home. The place is beautiful, peaceful and the view is just amazing with big widows all around. The house is huge, super confortable and well organized. The beds are super comfy. We enjoyed cooking with the view of the San Francisco peaks and woke up early just for the pleasure of seeing the sunrise. It was very relaxing to come back here after hiking or visiting. From there we were able to see a lot of things: Grand Canyon, Sedona, Sunset Crater (beautiful juste before the sunset), the Lava Cave, Flagstaff and the delicious burgers of Diablo burgers, Williams where we had delicious coffee, tea and pastries at Cafe 326. As we were with our 3,5 years old daughter we also went to: Bearizona (really worth seeing), the Deers Farm (a little bit pricy but our daughter loved to feed the deers and to talk with the funny parrot).
Also, Louisa (the owner) is very kind and replies quickly whenever you have a question or need advise about things to do.
We were really sad to leave this little paradise and hope we'll come back.

Great location; very quiet!

  • 4 of 5
The house is nicely located for visits to the Grand Canyon and Flagstaff area. The Grand Canyon is about an hour and Flagstaff is only a half hour away. The location is very quiet with great views of the hills. The house is located at 7000 ft elevation, which keeps the temperatures cool all day. The nights are very cool; a coat and sweats are necessary for walking and sitting on the deck. Great for a family of four or five. Great selection of board games available for family time.

Memories to last a lifetime!

  • 5 of 5
As stated by previous posts, it is such a peaceful, relaxing, comfortable and well equipped home to stay in. Louisa was awesome and accomodated our last minute reservations without question and the most important thing was we needed a house that was pet friendly for our 3 dogs. It was heaven for our pups, we spent almost everday hiking and exploring the forest lands around the property and area. SO many areas to explore and hike, we did make it to the grand canyon (very easy communte from the house) and the pups even enjoyed that. We found a few lakes in Willams area that were nice and not to crowded (dogtown and kaibab) We did see 4 elk roaming the meadow next to the house and a deer here and there on our hikes through the area. It was awesome to come home to the secluded comforts after long days of exploring and enjoy a glass of wine on the porch while staring out at a beautiful views. We look forward to returning soon!
