Parks House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 2 Full Bathrooms, Comfortably Sleeps 8, in the Kaibab Nat'l Forest

Elk Meadow Cottage was recently chosen as one of VRBO's Top 10 Cool Places to Stay Warm! In fact, it was #2!! http://www.vrbo.com/info/travel-ideas/top-10/cool-places-to-stay-warm

In the middle of it all, yet away from it all... Elk Meadow Cottage is the best of both worlds. Our house is just 5 miles off of I-40 and bordered on 3 sides by the Kaibab National Forest, giving you privacy, peace, and quiet. Yet, it is also conveniently located just 20 minutes from Flagstaff and Williams/Polar Express, an hour from the Grand Canyon, and an hour from Sedona! There is so much to do and see in Northern Arizona and Elk Meadow Cottage is the perfect home base for your adventures.

Our Cottage is nicely furnished, has new, top quality linens, and is kept in immaculate condition. We recently added a relaxing hammock and a super fun zipline for our younger guests!

The master bedroom features a king bed and adjoining bath with jetted soaking tub. Upstairs are 3 more bedrooms plus a 2nd full bath. Kids love sleeping and playing in the inviting loft space.

Perfect location for your base camp for all the attractions and natural wonders that Northern Arizona has to offer. Access to the Grand Canyon, Sedona, Slide Rock Park, Polar Express & North Pole Experience, Grand Canyon Railway, 5 area fishing lakes, and several golf courses.

Relax by the fireplace with a book or enjoy one of the many family friendly movies and games provided. BBQ and dine on the deck under the pines. Cool, fresh, pine scented mountain air in this wooded setting in the Kaibab Nat'l Forest at 7500 ft. The home is located in an area known for wildlife viewing, views of the San Francisco peaks, and access to miles and miles of hiking / biking / cross country skiing trails.

All the creature comforts you expect in a fine vacation home are here for you.

About Emily Locke

Hi :-) I grew up in Southern California, then lived in NYC for a few years (where I met my husband) before settling in Anthem, AZ and starting our family! My husband and I have lived in Anthem for 8 years and have three small children, with one more on the way. The Flagstaff/Williams area is a perfect escape from the heat of the Valley during the summer, a gorgeous place to see the leaves changing in the Fall, and a wonderful place to experience a 'real winter' and give our kids a chance to sled and build snowmen!! :-)

Emily Locke purchased this house in 2013

Why Emily Locke chose Parks

This place is amazing! We fell in love the first time we saw it. The Parks area is the perfect location, halfway between Flagstaff and Williams. Our cottage is about 5 miles off of I-40 and is bordered on 3 sides by the beautiful, Kaibab National Forest. The cottage itself is immaculate, well furnished, and a perfect place for a getaway!

What makes this house unique

One of my favorite things about the cottage is the 'Loft', which is a kid-sized play area above one of the upstairs bedrooms. It is such a unique and fun place!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Everything was great! I really can't think of anything about the house that we didn't like. We loved the wood burning stove, and that there were toys to keep our kids busy. The location was perfect, we loved how secluded it was.

Great House and Location for a Long Overdue Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
The location of Elk Meadow Cottage and the cottage itself could not have been better! The beds were comfy and the kitchen/great room were perfect for our group of 5. The woodstove came in handy for the chilly nights. Everything in the house was spotless and ready for our arrival, and the owner got right back to us on any questions that we had. Hiking trails out the back door, a little over an hour to Grand Canyon, the same for Sedona, and less than 30 minutes to either Flagstaff or Williams. Perfect jumping-off spot! We would recommend this property to anyone.

Spacious and Inviting

  • 5 of 5
We found the Elk Meadows Cottage to be a wonderful place to stay for our weekend visit to the area. The rooms are very spacious and it was clean and well prepared for guests. Cooking our meals was easy and the kitchen table was a favorite gathering place for our group. The owner was super helpful and made us feel welcomed and comfortable by communicating with us prior to our trip. This was our first VRBO experience and it was delightful. Thank you for sharing your beautiful cottage with us!

A wonderful place to unwind and enjoy nature

  • 5 of 5
Our large group of adults enjoyed the Cottage very much. It was exactly as advertised - nestled in the pine trees with comfortable beds and a well-stocked kitchen. The weather was perfect and the air was so clean that the sky was a beautiful blue. At night we could see the Milky Way. We spent some time in nearby Williams, which has a lot of character, and we took advantage of the hiking trails behind the cabin. We are already planning our next visit.

Relaxing and beautiful getaway

  • 5 of 5
This cabin is large, beautiful, very clean and well stocked. We had a great time with our adult children and our toddler granddaughter. There were toys and books for our granddaughter, games and books for the adults. We enjoyed walking the easy trail right behind the cabin and relaxing on the porches enjoying the beautiful views. The owner was easily accessible for questions. The cabin is out of town a bit and it felt like a real getaway for us. There is a little market about 5 miles away. We loved everything about it and hope to return some day.

Amazing Vacation Destination!

  • 5 of 5
The Elk Meadow Cottage has it all! It is clean, well appointed, and has everything needed for adults and kids. We have five children and there truly was something for everyone: hiking, great kitchen and dining amenities, family games and movies, books, children's toys, fenced yard, horseshoes, see-saw, etc. We spent hours exploring the trails right outside the back door, playing checkers, Yahtzee, Clue and other games. It is quiet and right in the middle of the forest, a welcome change from our usual suburban setting. It was in easy driving distance of Flagstaff, Williams, the Grand Canyon, and Winslow. The owners are amazing! They thought of everything and personally made sure our stay was the best it could be. If there were a six star rating, we would give it!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5
We were very pleased with our stay at Elk Meadow Cottage. The home is spacious and very clean and comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed. Emily was wonderful to work with and responded to all of my questions promptly. The home is located in a quiet wooded area with an aspen grove nearby. We went on hikes three different directions from the house and all were very enjoyable. Beautiful area and home!
