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.
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.
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.
