About Madeleine Sinclair

Hi, I'm the owner/manager. Originally from England, the scenery and surroundings of Flagstaff blow me away. We had a hard time finding a cabin in Flagstaff that fit our criteria for privacy, quiet and inspiring views in the pines, yet close to town. Everywhere we looked we found properties on small lots, overlooked by neighbors and plagued by traffic noise. We didn't need a big cabin, but we ended up with this one because we just couldn't beat the location, views and privacy. It's turned out to be one of the best things we've ever done. We get to stay in this incredible retreat, enjoy the Country Club amenities, and share it with the wonderful families who literally move us to tears with their appreciation for the special place we've designed. The Lodge is used by couples, often with their furry friends, enjoying a special occasion but more often it's the gathering place for families who are looking for that unique dream place to create memories. It's a joy to share Lone Elk Lodge with our renters.

Madeleine Sinclair purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Madeleine Sinclair chose Flagstaff

My family from the UK have loved visiting me in Flagstaff. Of course they love the sightseeing and just being in the South West but they also love the scent of the forest, the Aspen in Fall, and the wildlife. At night they enjoyed visiting unique pubs and restaurants Downtown and the live music at night, the independent coffee shops, the galleries. While they liked visiting Sedona, they were glad our cabin was in Flagstaff where there is more to do and see and it's a better base for excursions to the Grand Canyon etc.

What makes this cabin unique

I sometimes wonder why so many guests email me with their appreciation but don't post reviews. I guess most of our guests like to keep Lone Elk Lodge a secret! While the Lodge does have air conditioning, for me it's all about the clear mountain air, sleeping with the windows open with the scent of the pines.

It's about getting up in the morning and seeing those views, walking through the pines with with my coffee, and greeting the deer that sleep in the hollow above the cabin. While my guests rave about the golf and the pools, I love the nearby hiking trails. The Country Club is surrounded by forest and the deer and elk roam free in our heavily treed neighborhood of Lakeside Acres where the houses are hidden in the pines. At night you can't beat the real wood fire, it never gets old for me. I'm only seven minutes from town for whatever I might need, but it's hard to tear myself away from the Lodge once I arrive. It's fun for me to visit and see the snow men made by the families that stay here and try out the sled run. Keeps me young!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you for sharing this wonderful home. We all enjoyed the roomiest, most comfortable rooms, the decks and patio and all the furnished amenities of home. We would love to return for the relaxation and peace. Thanks again

We just keep coming back!

  • 5 of 5

We have had the great good fortune to stay at Maddy's Lone Elk Lodge four times already and we will certainly be back time and again. The pictures really don't do it justice. The views and privacy are amazing and yet you are still only a few minutes drive to town! The property is cozy and inviting, yet has all of these neat areas so family members can also spread out. We generally have a party of six comprising of four adults and two kiddos and we all always marvel at how well the property accommodates our together time as well as time spent alone relaxing or reading. We also love that we can bring our family dog with us! She loves the outdoor many smells and new things to explore! We enjoy family games and meals at the big dining tables both inside and outside. We also love exploring nature around the lodge and on the nearby trails. This last visit we saw a huge herd of elk just strolling through the property. Our boys went nuts taking videos and photos...a very unique experience for them to see such amazing creatures up close and personal. It's a great, great vacation property...clean, well appointed, comfortable. Maddy is wonderful to work with! We just keep coming back:).

Convenient, roomy, and quiet

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Flagstaff and plan to come back again next year. This house was perfect for our family of 6. We had plenty of room to spread out and everyone had a bed. The kitchen is spacious and fully equipped for all kinds of cooking. This is in a great neighborhood and a great location. It’s close to I40 but secluded and private.

Amazing views and so cozy!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our stay at Elk Lodge and we had the best time! We shared the cabin with some friends of ours and had more than enough room for 4 adults and 3 kids. The pictures just don't do the place or property justice. There are so many cozy corners to tuck away with a good book. And several areas to enjoy games together, puzzles, conversations by the fire and a huge dining room table to gather together for meals. The media loft was wonderful to watch a couple of our teams basketball games. We decided to do a small "Thanksgiving" dinner while we were there and had everything we needed to prepare and enjoy the meal! The neighborhood is so quiet and fun to walk around and see all the beautiful homes. The weather was too cold for us to go outside and enjoy the huge deck, but it was beautiful and I could see how it would be wonderful in the warmer months. We did get one glorious day of snowfall and all of us enjoyed being able to sled right on the property! The views from this home are just breathtaking! Surrounded by pines, but with a glimpse of Humphrey's peak! You definitely feel tucked away, but downtown Flagstaff and grocery shopping are just a short, convenient drive. Maddy was absolutely wonderful to deal with! She was quick to respond to all my questions, was very accommodating about bringing our dogs and helped walk me thru the booking process when I encountered an issue. All in all this was just the vacation we needed to get away from busy life. It was so relaxing and had all the comforts of home. Oh and the beds are so comfortable! Something that as we've gotten older is so important on travel! Thank you again for a lovely stay! Hoping to come back again next year or even this summer!

Luckily, to help plan your schedule, the Flagstaff Visitor Center in Downtown (Old train station) on Route 66 is staffed and equipped with everything you'll need from maps and insider tips to the latest weather forecasts on the roads to the Grand Canyon.
