About Gina Day
I love to cook so everything you need is available. I also stock the cabin with just about everything you may need so a get away is easy and relaxing. Many times by the time I pack and unpack after a trip, I need another vacation. You know what I mean. I also give renters many ideas in advance of places to see and things to do. Renters from out of state or the country do appreciate this. We do not have WiFi for a reason. We wanted us and our kids to unplug and be present in the moment. But we do have satellite TV:)
Why Gina Day chose Flagstaff
We built this cabin with love. It took 2.5 years. We completed it in 2008 but are constantly making it better. We wanted a place to take our kids so we could relax and enjoy all the natural beauty of northern Arizona. We love to snow ski and board and have hiked the Grand Canyon to Phantom Ranch, Indian Gardens and from rim to rim many times. We also love hanging out in historical down town Flagstaff...there is always something going on. They also have unique and wonderful restaurants. The town is clean and safe. We also love Williams for the same reasons. It is much, much smaller than Flagstaff. We wanted to share all this with others so they would have a nice place to take their family and friends at the best possible price. We are so remote, we have the water and gas delivered to our cabin. But because of the location, we are also close to many attractions. So many renters have told us a stay at our cabin was the first time their children played in snow. Children (and adults) love this place...it is magical.
What makes this cabin unique
We have four seasons! Because we sit at 7,000 feet, if it snows, we will get it! When was the last time you built a Snowman?!? Because we are only minutes to Interstate 40, it is quick and easy to see so many historical towns and attractions. Remember the Disney movie Cars? That is Williams and Parks, Arizona! Our cabin is within walking distance to Route 66. It's the kind of town where if you drive down the road, people wave at you. The Kaibab Forest really is our back yard. They let us put a gate on their fence so you can easily walk onto the national forest. Elk are a common site while sitting on the deck, especially at sunrise and dusk. We once had a visit from a pot belly pig who liked to play soccer with our boys. We did find his owners and his name is Warren. He was terribly missed!
