"Sahalie" is a Chinook Indian name meaning "High Heavenly Ground". The views from this property are spectacular with Mt. Humphries (San Francisco Peaks), Mt. Kendrick, Sitgreaves Mountain and other beautiful peaks right outside the door. Sitting at an altitude of 7,300 feet, this rustic log cabin (with all modern conveniences) sits on 6 acres only 3 miles north of Route 66 in Parks halfway between Flagstaff and Williams.
Sahalie Cabin borders Kaibab National Forest making access to the forest and all its adventure just steps away. Explore the numerous forest service roads in the area and look for the resident elk, deer, antelope and occasional bear. Enjoy hiking and climbing the hills looking for elk or deer antlers that have been shed by these beautiful animals that are frequent visitors to this property. Better yet, just sit on the deck and enjoy the magnificent beauty that surrounds you. The sunrise and sunset are not to be missed. Beware of the Hummingbirds that will "buzz" around you as they drink from their feeder right off this deck. Did I mention the stars at night? If you have never experienced seeing the Milky Way, this is something you have to see. The night sky is simply breathtaking! Watch for satellites and those shooting stars too!
For those who want to take in all the many treasures that Northern Arizona has to offer, the Grand Canyon is only 55 min away. 15 minutes to Williams (catch the train to the Grand Canyon), 15 minutes to Flagstaff and 60 minutes to Sedona. Visiting attractions like Bearizona are always a fun time and fishing the lakes near Williams is a summer favorite of many as you bask in the 70-80 degree summer temperatures. The monsoon storms are an afternoon favorite for many in July and August. Afternoons can be spent on the deck watching these storms build up all around then letting loose. The sound of thunder rumbling through the forest is a sound few people ever get to hear.
This very special cabin has room for 2-3 couples and kids too. There is 2650 square feet of rustic comfort. 3 bedrooms with 2 1/2 baths. Master bedroom has bath with shower. Both guest bedrooms share a "jack and jill" bath with tub/shower. There is a half bath in the hallway. All bedrooms have comfy queen beds and there are Aero Beds with plenty of room in the loft. The open floor plan features a large kitchen that has everything needed for cooking those hearty mountain meals. There is a propane barbecue available if so desired. The kitchen is open to a large family gathering area that features a floor to ceiling fireplace that was built with rocks gathered from the property. Satellite TV is available in the great room and the master bedroom. There is an XBOX in the loft ready for the kids. A Pak-N-Play and a highchair are available if needed.
If you're looking for a few days or a few weeks of nothing but relaxation, come visit the "high heavenly ground" Sahalie has to offer. You won't be disappointed! However, there is one thing that must be mentioned, leaving is very difficult!
