Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Arizona - The Cedar House

4 Bedrooms + Loft - 2 Baths - (Sleeps 14)

Set in 5 acres of tall timber, this Park's home offers rustic elegance, comfort and absolute tranquility. A visitor would never know they were only minutes away from Flagstaff, restaurants and city activities. Choose from the night-life of Flagstaff or the adventures of the Grand Canyon (that is only a 55 minute drive!) , mountain biking, skiing or any number of outdoor activities within minutes of this beautiful retreat.This 2500 square foot home features a master suite, 4 bedrooms, a loft and 2 bathrooms. A supplemental wood burning stove adds that cozy touch while a family, or group of friends are nestled in for a late night home movie in this beautifully appointed Casa. The loft is great for kids and the covered porch, just off the living room, is great for BBQ's, boisterous conversations, relaxing evenings....Or just watching the wildlife. You are in the woods! The property backs up against 500 acres of Coconino National forest, so the only unexpected guests will be the deer,elk and eagle.

Snow play park off of Route 66 : 5 minutes away is a state park for kids to play in the snow, they have small runs for sledding and sliding etc. Anything you can think of to do in the snow. Great time for the family. Tubing year round at Elk Ridge Ski area.

Tubing in Williams, AZ : 12 minutes away is Williams, AZ 'Gateway to the Grand Canyon' and it has a small ski slope but half of the ski slope is used for tubing (year round) and it is a blast.

About Malcolm Giles

If you are a kind person I will give your family a discount. I take my job very serious and I want our guest to feel very comfortable. I will go out of my way to help them have an enjoyable visit. I love sharing my special place/home with guest. 99.9% love the experience.

Malcolm Giles purchased this house in 1999

Why Malcolm Giles chose Arizona

Wanted time away from the busy 'Valley of the Sun' time to relax and rejuvenate one soul and time to enjoy nature. Time to live in the now and be present to myself. The fun part now is I can share these moments with our wonderful guest.

What makes this house unique

No one is around, you are alone in the woods and you will not see anyone else while you are there. Why not get away from the crowds. I promise you will not want to leave.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We came to vacation and get out of the valley. Thank you for sharing your lovely home. We enjoyed rain storms, fresh air and relaxed. We didn't see any animals but it was nice stop between the Grand Canyon, Flagstaff and Williams. Which we were able to visit all due to the wonderful location of the cabin. Very peaceful, love the location, cabin had everything you could need. Plenty of water, lines, dishes and utensils, etc. Thank you for letting us use the garage to put ours in to keep animals away. We had a great time and really enjoyed our stay.

Ideal!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic stay! We came as a company of actors who needed a home for a weekend while doing a show in Flagstaff, and the cabin environment was so relaxing and invigorating. The property was beautiful and welcoming--highly recommended!

Great location! Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

Actually our stay was in Oct 2013, but I forgot to add our review. We've stayed at this wonderful home a few times over a period of 3 years and absolutely loved it each time. We love the location, the property, the home, the rental rates, and working with the owner. It's a great place for a family vacation or group outing!

Wonderful family vacation to be remembered!

  • 5 of 5

I wanted to have the perfect family vacation that my boys would cherish and remember always. We found the place in Parks, AZ. Malcolm was a joy to work with and very accommodating. The house is in an ideal location. We flew into Phoenix and rented a car. We soon found out that Parks was a perfect gateway to all our family fun. Williams, AZ was a short distance away. It is a charming town. We took the train to the Grand Canyon from here. That was a great experience. My boys loved it. We also visited Bearizona in Williams as well. The house was only an hour from the Grand Canyon, drive time as well as 20-30 minutes to Flagstaff and an hour to Snowbowl. Being from Florida my boys have never seen snow. We were blessed with 3 days of light snow. We also drove to Jeromone through Sedona. It is a beautifully breathtaking drive. The house was perfect for our family of 5. The boys could have their own room. There was plenty of exploring to do on the property. Again, perfect for children. Perfect, memorable vacation!

Perfect Family Venue!

  • 5 of 5

This property was absolutely perfect for our family. We wanted to end our busy tourist day in a quiet and secluded area that was centrally located between Flagstaff, Williams, and the major attractions in northern Arizona. This was that place. Since I was in the property management business, I could tell early on that our vacation experience would be a good one given the concern for our needs expressed by the property owner prior to our arrival. While some small items didn't work at the property (as you would expect in a home of this size), the property was a source of great comfort and joy after a long day. That's what we wanted and that's what we got. Not only would I revisit this property myself, I would highly recommend it to other families. Now that I think about it, this property could be a "Presidential Retreat". Bottom line: It doesn't get any better for a family to absorb one of the seven wonders of the world by day and then watch our kids roast marshmallows under a chilly, star filled sky by night.

Perfect for kids!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at the cabin. We used it as a home base for our school travel group: 12 middle school students and 2 adults. There was plenty of room for sleeping and eating, the kids loved being able to run and play outside and we thoroughly enjoyed building a fire at the end of each night.

Notes:
We have added two new decks for your viewing pleasure, high up in the trees. Decks are on the second floor and you sit in the middle of ponderosa pines. Breathtaking. There is plenty of space to park an RV, boat or any tow-alongs. The spacious 2 car garage is available to all guests wishing to put vehicles in for the night. And of course....The full kitchen is equipped with everything a vacationer would need. The great room is large enough for some 'private space' and a fantastic gathering area to socialize and interact with family and friends.
