About Liz

Liz and Jeff live and work in the Phoenix Metro area, but hope to move permanently to their beautiful mountain home in a few years. In the meantime, it is too special a place not to share.

Liz purchased this house in 2007

Why Liz chose Flagstaff

Liz and Jeff are biased, of course, but the truth is that every person that stays at Little Wing (our name for the property) has their lives changed by the experience. Couple this truth with all the wondrous experiences in Flagstaff and Northern Arizona, and you have the recipe for a perfect vacation.

What makes this house unique

Little Wing is a place where magic and miracles have happened. A place of healing and celebration. A place open to all.

Superb Property and Home!

  • 5 of 5

You would be hard pressed to find a better rental property than this one. The House - This house easily and comfortably accomodated 9 adults on our family get together. Flexible sleeping arrangements made it easy to satisfy everyone in our group. Great amenities, multiple areas for eating and relaxing, and a full array of appliances, gadgets, games, books, etc. The Property - Very peaceful and quiet property with stunning views of the San Francisco Peaks and National Forest. We felt like there was no one else for miles around, while we sat on the deck enjoying the views, wildlife and clear night skies for stargazing. The adjacent National Forest trails were very convenient for the walkers and joggers in our group. The Location - located less than a 15 minute drive from Flagstaff, this was the perfect jumping off point for our side trips to Grand Canyon, Antelope Canyon, Wapatki Indian Ruins, Lowell Observatory, Snow Bowl ski lift, and Sedona. It was an easy drive into town for groceries and restaurants. The Owners - Jeff and Liz McKenna have created a wonderful paradise in Flagstaff. They were very responsive with the few minor issues we had, and obviously take pride in keeping the house in good condition. They were also very helpful in providing suggestions for activities and food. They made the whole rental very easy. Bottom Line - This home is exactly as advertised, and more. There is no doubt that we would stay here again.

We had a great week at Little Wing! Great location to enjoy Flagstaff with a young family. We thoroughly enjoyed lots of activity on location and off, a great respite from the desert heat!

If I am ever fortunate enough to be in the Flagstaff area again, I will not have to spend any time looking for accommodations. The layout provided our group of 8 people with privacy while also being cozy and allowing us to gather for meals and activities. The house is secluded and the view of the San Francisco Peaks is stunning. The kitchen is unbelievable with high-end appliances and every gadget you could need. There were also many staples such as coffee, condiments, ziploc bags, coolers to use for day trips, shampoo, shower gel, laundry detergent and so on. We enjoyed our stay so much. Little Wing is absolutely perfect!

Perfect winter retreat!

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for peace, quiet and relaxation in a beautiful cabin getaway, this is the place for you! Jeff and Liz couldn't have been more gracious hosts. The house had everything we needed in terms of the kitchen, bathrooms, you name it. There's a jacuzzi with awesome views of the forest, a ping pong table, video games, and PLENTY of space for five couples (10 total). The house sits on a lot of acreage and backs up to National Forest, so we took daily walks as a group and really enjoyed the outdoors. It snowed on our second-to-last last night, which made the entire setting completely magical. Major kudos to the homeowners for providing everything their guests could need and being so prompt and thorough with their communication. We would love to come back and visit again in the future, and especially if you're a Phoenician looking for sweet solitude and an escape with a group or family, look no further!
