About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Black-Eyed Susan's Cottage is a beautiful single level cabin situated in the cool pines of Northern Arizona on 1.5 acres adjacent to Kaibab National Forest in Parks, AZ, which is 15 miles west of Flagstaff off of I-40, making it a quick 20 minute drive into town. It is close to the Grand Canyon, Sedona, Monument Valley, Petrified Forest, Sunset Crater, Walnut Canyon, Wupatki, Montezuma Castle and Tuzigoot National Monuments. Flagstaff is a year round destination with summer highs in the low 80's and snow for skiing, tubing and playing in the winter. With 3 bedrooms that sleep 10 as follows:

Master Bedroom Queen

2nd Bedroom Two Twin Beds

3rd Bedroom Queen Futon

Living Room Queen Sleeper Sofa

The fully equipped kitchen has a coffeemaker, blender, toaster & microwave as well as all the pots & pans, bakeware, dishes, utensils and serving pieces you need. There is a separate laundry room with a washer & dryer. The living room has a woodstove for those cold winter there is a forced air gas furnace as well. The rear deck with patio furniture and a propane grill faces unrestricted forest views of Kaibab National Forest. This rural setting allows direct access to the national forest land and clear views of the night sky for star gazing. ATVs and Snow Mobiles are allowed on the property, but their use must be kept to the driveway area. There are hundreds of miles of forest service roads that can be accessed directly from the cabin. The flagstone patio out front is beautifully landscaped, and is the perfect place for your morning coffee. The Cottage is located about an hour away from the Grand Canyon and 20 minutes to either Flagstaff or Williams, AZ. It is the perfect place for your next family getaway.

It has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, as a 2nd one was added in November 2013. There is a wood burning stove in the living room. There is an outside deck with dining table, chairs and a propane BBQ grill with an unobstructed view of miles and miles of National Forest.

About Karen Chapman, Broker UR Home Realty

The owner's of this property live in Northern California. They visit Black-Eyed Susan's Cottage about 3 times a year and generally stay 2 to 4 weeks.

Karen Chapman, Broker UR Home Realty purchased this cabin in 1999

Why Karen Chapman, Broker UR Home Realty chose Parks

They originally purchased the property when their daughter was attending Northern Arizona University. But, because they love the Flagstaff area so much, kept it after her graduation.

What makes this cabin unique

The hardwood floors throughout add to the cozy atmosphere of the cabin. The front entryway acts as a solar room on chilly winter mornings. That coupled with the woodstove make it cozy all year long. Brilliant stars in the night sky and uninterrupted views of the forest make this a special place.

Quiet and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Excellent time in a very quiet and relaxing area. Very nice cottage. The only thing I would suggest is to verify that all the dishes are clean.

Great location, quiet, and ideal for families with dogs!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here! The property is located about 25 minutes outside of Flagstaff and 20 minutes away from Williams, so you are far enough away to hear only nature at night, but close enough to run to the store for groceries if needed. The back door leads to a large deck and fenced-in back yard, so our dogs could be let out to take care of business without worrying about them wandering off. It snowed while we were there, so the mud room at the front door and the laundry room at the back door were great to keep snow from tracking into the house proper. The kitchen is well equipped with a gas range, microwave, and coffee pot and any pots and pans you might need. We made pancakes, bacon, pizza, brownies, and hot chocolate while there. There was a lot of room for the four of us with two bedrooms and a bathroom on one end of the house, and a room with a futon couch and a bathroom at the other end of the house. Our kids' only complaint was that the twin beds they slept in were not very comfortable (a bit hard and squeaky). Hot water pressure is low, but manageable - you just have to finesse the shower controls to get it right. There are extra blankets and linens in the hall closet in case you get cold. As stated in the description, there is no wifi, and although cell service is available, even with Verizon, which typically has the best coverage in rural areas, the most we could get were 2 bars in all parts of the house - but then again, cell coverage wasn't a big priority for us this trip. Just an FYI in case cell coverage is important to anyone. Clean up after your dogs, take out the trash, turn down any slept-in beds, and place used towels in the laundry room were the very reasonable checkout rules. The manager, Karen, responded back right away the one time we had a question regarding location of extra trash bags. Great place. Would definitely recommend this for families with dogs.

Experience AZ the way you should

  • 5 of 5

If you plan on spending your vacation watching cable and surfing the web this is not the place for you. But if you want to stay in a beautiful quite spot away from the tourist traps around the Grand Canyon Check this gem out. At night you would never even know there was another house around and the stars will put on a show that will put Facebook to shame. The kitchen was perfect for cooking and the back porch was the ideal place for morning coffee. If you love country living here is the place.

A great step back in time!

  • 4 of 5

The cabin served us perfectly - it was great having our own kitchen and space.

It was lovely to be away from light pollution and I enjoyed having no wi-fi.

Some new bedding and towels would be a nice addition but overall we had a great time!

Old home that isn’t looked after very well

  • 2 of 5

I have never written a bad review on this website but reluctantly I need to write one for this cabin. The yard was very overgrown so it wasn’t a nice area for my dogs and I to play, we found 3 live black widow spiders in the cabin (and so I spent the whole weekend worried my dogs or I were going to be bitten), and the smell of mold in the small bedroom/den area was so overpowering that we couldn’t sleep in that room at all (I’m not sure if it was coming from the carpet, the furniture, or the walls). It is obvious that no one lives at, or routinely visits the property because it is not well cared for.
