About the property

4 Bedrooms, 2 Full Bathrooms, Comfortably Sleeps 8, over 2100 sq ft.

Elk Meadow Cottage was recently chosen as one of VRBO's Top 10 Cool Places to Stay Warm! In fact, it was #2!!

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 Grand Canyon

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.

Excellent stay!!

This was one of the best experiences of my life! I'll probably rent this cabin every year for my family. It felt like home being there and my family never wanted to leave. Thank you for allowing us this great opportunity!

Wonderful stay with the family

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable in this house with a good kitchen. We didn't have small children with us, but looked well equipped for that also. Everything was in good condition and we enjoyed being able to use this spot as a launching pad to drive to the Grand Canyon, Flagstaff and Sedona. Lovely property.

Great Rental

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough great things about this property. Our stay included 4 adults and three children and we still had plenty of room. The two 9 year old boys kept coming downstairs saying "I love this place" and then disappearing again into their own little loft. The walking trails were amazing and right outside. You can make a whole day out of just exploring. The location is perfect for a safe and easy exploration away from the rest of the world. We never got bored, there were games, movies, outdoor activities, all kinds of stuff for all ages. The owners thought of everything. We bought some frozen pizzas at the store and were shocked to find a pizza cutter in the drawer. Who would have thought of that? I am telling you, this place had anything and everything you could want and/or need. Best of all the owners were only a phone call or text away. They were very accommodating. We will definitely be back.

Fun and relaxing family time

  • 5 of 5

Awesome time at Elk Meadow Cottage! The whole family enjoyed our stay in the lovely well kept house. It was great to see that the house is so child friendly. Our children loved the board games, the yard was pleasant, the hamock was relaxing, the loft was fun, our little ones loved the game room and the zip line was a blast! Movie nights with the fire going were warm and cozy. The kitchen was spacious enough for our cooking and baking needs and the whole house was very inviting and well taken care of. We enjoyed the hiking trail that starts just outside the house.

Elk Meadow Cottage is close to The Grand Canyon, Sedona and Meteor Crater making it a pleasant drive.

The owners gave exceptional customer service. Owner went above and beyond on our arrival day when we checked in!

Throughout our stay communication was always quick and easy with the owners. Always asking how they could make our stay more pleasant or if there was any additional thing that they could offer or do for us.

We did not want to leave, we felt right at home at Elk Meadow Cottage.

We definitely recommend Elk Meadow to anyone traveling with small children or anyone who wants to get away from it all.

We would definitely come back to Elk Meadow Cottage.

Thank you!

Our beautiful cottage has the convenience of being just 5 miles off of I-40 but is quiet and serene beyond compare. There are frequent wildlife sightings!

Located at the Parks Road Exit off I-40 just west of Flagstaff, this home is perfectly situated to allow you to enjoy the smell of the pine trees and the fresh mountain air, yet convenient to many of Northern Arizona's most spectacular scenery and attractions including the Grand Canyon, Sedona, the Meteor Crater, Painted Desert, and many many more.
