About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)



Our popular, well-appointed, clean and comfortable cabin is located among tall pine trees, in the mountain community of Munds Park, 18 (all-interstate) miles south of Flagstaff, 2 miles east of of I-17 at exit 322. This location provides easy access to explore all the attractions in Northern Arizona, including Sedona, Flagstaff, Williams and the Grand Canyon. It is the perfect place for one/two couples or a small family, which is what most renters want. Why pay the extra rent for a cabin that sleeps 8-10 when all you need is a cozy two bedroom/two bath?

You will enjoy cooler summer and fall temperatures due to the higher elevations in Northern Arizona (6,800 feet). Daytime summer temperatures range in the high 70's to mid 80's and nights cool down to the 40's and 50's and it is only a 90 minute drive from north Phoenix!

Located near the entrance to the Coconino Forest Preserve, you can enjoy hiking trails, fishing on nearby lake, mountain biking and ATVs. Take a day trip to beautiful Sedona (40 minutes away) or to the Grand Canyon (1-1/2 hours). Visit downtown Flagstaff (20 minutes away) with its quaint shops and restaurants, or simply relax and read a book on the large front deck under the towering pine trees.

This tastefully decorated cabin is well maintained and fully furnished with two bedrooms and two baths. There is a king-size, pillow-top bed in one bedroom and a queen-size bed in the other bedroom. Each bedroom has adjoining bathrooms and the bedrooms are on opposite sides of the cabin. There is a 37' Flat Screen Recordable Hi-Definition TV (Direct TV) with a DVD player in the living room and each bedroom has a 32' High Definition TV, plus there is WIFI High Speed Internet through Century Link. The cabin is kept very clean and stocked with alot of extra's for your enjoyment.

About Elaine Madden

Dan and Elaine - Owners

Elaine Madden purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Elaine Madden chose Munds Park

We started vacationing in Arizona in the mid 1990's and FELL IN LOVE with the beauty of this state - especially Sedona and the Grand Canyon. We moved to Arizona from the midwest 16 years ago and have never regretted it. But, the summers are very hot in the desert, so we started venturing to northern Arizona during the summer months and discovered the cooler temperatures of the Flagstaff area. We bought our place in this area because of the quaintness and the abundance of pine trees, without being far away from public services - such as city water and sewer, a fire station (very important), and friendly neighbors. The proximity to Sedona, Flagstaff and the Grand Canyon is wonderful because our place is located just minutes from I-17 and you can get anywhere quickly. We love spending time in our cabin get-away and hope to spend alot more time there after we retire. But for now, we hope YOU enjoy it as much as we do.

What makes this cabin unique

You will be 35-40 minutes from Sedona and 15-20 minutes (straight up I-17) to Flagstaff. The south rim of the Grand Canyon is 1-1/2 hours away. Our cabin is charming and cozy - we keep it well-maintained and stocked with extras for your convenience. If you walk out at dark and look up at the sky, you will see stars like you've never seen before. The deck on the front is 500 square feet and it is where you will spend most of your time! It is also not uncommon to see several Elk just standing along the empty lots on the main road that runs through Munds. That's why we love it!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were very impressed with how clean and stocked everything was. Your place is even cuter in person - loved how you decorated!!!

Mountain Cottage

  • 4 of 5

This was a very nice fall experience - we found the mountain cottage very comfortable and well kept. All the needs of home were provided for! The beds were comfortable and the amenities very enjoyable. There is easy access to nature trails in the Forest Reserve just a short drive up the hill. We ate on the front deck and loved the smell of the fresh mountain air.

Most excellent cabin and location

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect for us. It was peaceful and beautiful. The people seemed friendly in Munds Park and the area was secluded. It was very convenient to get to the mountains and attractions around Flagstaff and Sedona.

The rooms were cozy and the instructions that the owner gave us were accurate and easy to follow. The whole cabin was very clean. The many candles inside and out gave a nice glow to the cabin and our stay.

We thoroughly enjoyed the front porch and the heater on the table that made sitting outside pleasant even in cool temperatures. The birds and squirrels around the cabin entertained us every time we went outside. The flowers around the deck added a lot of color to our stay.

The furniture and conveniences were laid out in an efficient manner. It was comfortable to sit and watch the baseball playoffs. We also enjoyed playing cards on the table which was well lit.

The owner was very concerned that things went well for us and called the day after we checked in to verify we were happy. We also had a contact number to get with them if there was a concern.

We are grateful for a great time there!

Beautiful, Charming, Inviting Cabin

  • 5 of 5

This Cabin is a beautiful place to relax and get away. The inviting space is clean and beautifully decorated. They take great care of their cabin retreat and it is evident in the little details, from potted flowers on the deck to timed indoor/outdoor lighting. We will definitely stay again!

Perfect place to stay when in Flagstaff!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a well-equipped and modern “cabin in the pines” home that we just loved. The very nice owners have left plenty of everything you could think of - toilet paper, detergents for the washing machine and dishwasher, matches, batteries, etc. When we arrived, the owner called to make sure everything was fine and she assured us that we could reach her if there were any problems. The interior of the house is decorated beautifully and there is a large front porch with a modern grill for outdoor eating. There are no negatives I can say about the house especially since it is in immaculate shape and has very comfortable mattresses. What a find!!!
