About the property

Adorable, Rustic, Historic Log Cabin /Forest Views /20 minutes from Flagstaff

Located in the cool pines of Northern Arizona, we are near the Grand Canyon, Grand Canyon Railway, Bearizona, Sedona, Oak Creek, Montezuma's Castle & Cliff Castle Casino. The Petrified Forest & Painted desert are about a 2 hour drive. This lovely place is ideal for family retreats, a couple's romantic week-end or a family escapade.

Our cabins are about 100 years old with plenty of rustic character. We can offer a soothing atmosphere not provided in the city limits. We are in Parks, Az. which is 1/2 way between Flagstaff & Williams.

Quite often, we see elk in the early evening during the summer, so we walk quietly & watch them. You will be in awe looking at the clear night skies, the scent of fresh air, & the far away sound of frogs in a pond. So many things the busy city hotels can't offer or sell. Please take time to hear the sound of silence on a clear moonlit sky.

About the Bunk House: You will enjoy this quiet, peaceful old shot gun cabin that we call 'The Bunk House.' Built in the early 1900's out of railroad tiles milled in Flagstaff, it is now a refreshing escape from today's fast pace. While making it comfortable for our guests, we have also preserved the rugged atmosphere. A stay in this rustic old cabin is a great way to enhance your Arizona experience. It will take you back in time.

Please note that there are four beautiful cabins on site that are different sizes. All are unique and beautiful. This provides the perfect opportunity to bring families and friends together for reunions or other events.

Any requests for four wheelers, trailers, RV's, or pitched tents must be discussed and approved by the Property Manager. Extra fees may apply.

This is a No-Smoking cabin.

Pets are considered.

This cabin is professionally managed by Kathy Duncan, Vacation Rental Specialist, KD Prime Vacation Rentals at Front Door Realty.

What makes this cabin unique

We are about an hour from the Grand Canyon, Sedona, & SnowBowl. And only 13miles to Bearizona, & historic downtown Williams. Flagstaff with all of the festivities & restaurants is only about 20 min.

The pine trees are so tall & thick you can 'barely see the forest for the trees' They have a fire pit or fire ring in front of all 3 cabins. Mother nature provides wood just across the fence for the out door fires. In the reviews 'quiet' and 'peaceful' seem to be the general consensus.

The Bunk House has a convection oven, slow cooker,waffle maker, coffee maker & microwave. There are some cast iron skillets, pans and microwaveable casserole dishes. However there is no actual stove. We furnish a few cleaning supplies for your convenience. We also provide real dishes if you prefer them over paper & plastic. There is a picnic table out side for your use. You might want to bring an old sheet or a table clothe to sit on & cover the table because it sits under a large pine tree which drips sap & pitch. Also, while the shade is nice for your car you won't like the 'by-products' of a large Ponderosa in the warm summer months. Kaibab forest is on the north & east sides of our property so you don't have to drive to get into the forest.

Very good!

  • 4 of 5

This property turned out to be a great rental! My husband and my mother and step father stayed here April 30-May 2, 2016 and we were all pleased. The decorations were very neat; all Wild West themed. The house was clean and well equipped. Of note though, the rental only has a small refrigerator, be sure to keep this in mind when purchasing groceries.

The property was not far from any of the major attractions of the area. We managed to visit Sedona, Jerome, Prescott, Williams and Flagstaff with ease. And it wasn't far from the Grand Canyon though we made this trip after check out. Overall this property was great.

Phenomenal experience, great value, charming property!

  • 5 of 5

I couldn't be happier with this fantastic little cottage, where my family spent two wonderful nights a few days ago. Just 20 minutes from fine dining in Flagstaff, 5 minutes from Bearizona (and absolute MUST-SEE if you have kids, or even if you don't), and an hour from the Grand Canyon. Great location away from it all, well-equipped, and very well-maintained property. Highly recommended!

Adorable cabin, sweetest owners. and fun in the snow. What more can you ask for?

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an absolutely amazing time at the cabin! Linda and Andy are amazing hosts. Our kids did not want to leave the cabin! If it wasn't for Christmas being in a few days, we would have had major meltdowns. We loved the rustic feel of the cabin. It was very cozy and comfortable. We didn't miss a stove one bit! We played in the snow, went to the Polar Express, visited Bearizona (amazing!), went to a sweet coffee show in Williams, and relaxed. It was 4 days of pure enjoyment for our family! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! Owning a little cabin in the forest is now a dream of ours...

Perfect cottage for our family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

As Minnesota natives currently living in Arizona, our family planned a getaway to get into the holiday spirit. We came across The Bunk House and so glad we did! It was the perfect setting and size for us. Andy and Linda have created a very welcoming space, and even decorated for the holidays which made it extra special for our boys. Our weekend was perfect - so much so that our boys didn't want to leave! They're still asking to go back to "the cabin!" We definitely recommend staying here.

Quaint cabin nestled in convenient location

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I had a wonderful stay at Linda and Andy's cabin. It's well situated for anyone looking to make day trips to the Grand Canyon, Sedona, Flagstaff, and beyond. We found the cabin itself to be quite enjoyable for simple and quiet evenings alone; a perfect vacation.

We are north of Interstate 40 off if exit 178. Not in any city limits, it's quiet & easy to find. It’s best to use the directions that are sent to you.

Hunting area 7 west. Elk, deer & wild turkey.

Going west on Interstate 40/Route 66 take exit 178. Go right ( north ) to the 'T' in the road and turn left ( west)

You will then be on an original section of Old Route 66. There is a historic country store on the corner of Old 66 & Spring Valley Rd. You will turn right (north) there. Not far up the road on the right ( east) is the Bunk House. Parks is more of an 'area' than a town with a population of less than 1,000 people.

If you use a GPS be sure to put our town & zip code FIRST then the address

If no it will take you to EAST Springvalley Rd.

Other Activities: Grand Canyon, Grand Canyon Railway & Bearizona. In Flagstaff there is N. Ariz Museum & the Riordan Mansion. (especially during the holidays. They try to re-create the exact way the Riordan family decorated)

Ski: We are about a one hour drive to Snowbowl which is located north of Flagstaff. We are west. So to get to Snowbowl from here you would go back into Flagstaff and then go north up to the ski lodge. Be safe on your drive. The road from Flagstaff up to Snowbowl is a narrow road shaded by pine trees quite often the snow/ice on the road doesn't melt. There are several housing districts there so the traffic can get busy.

The 'Local Services & Attractions' that are listed are in Flagstaff or Williams. A We are in the middle.

A drive up Spring Valley rd. will take you into some open & very beautiful country. We often see deer & elk when driving all the back roads. A lava tube is near & anasazi pictographs.

The beautiful red rocks of Sedona & Oak Creek Canyon is not far to the south east.

Grand Canyon Cafe & Red Raven in Williams & LaFonda for Mexican Food in Flagstaff are our favorites. But there are many many privately owned places to eat in Williams.
