About Mahesh

I am originally from Chicago but have lived in the Phoenix - Scottsdale area since college. We enjoy an active lifestyle of travelling, hiking, biking, and snowshoeing the trails behind the cabin as well as snow boarding and cross country skiing at the nearby ski resort. Most of our free time over the last couple of years has been taken up on our renovation of the A- Frame using sustainable building practices. Materials were 0 VOC bio based non toxic coatings that we manufacture and salvaged locally sourced Ponderosa Pine, recycled doors, windows, furniture, and fixtures. All three of us (including the dog) have allergies so we try to keep the cabin as dust and allergen free as possible. We find it rewarding to help bring families and friends together from all over the world to enjoy the wonders of Flagstaff and to share the living experience in our cabin. A portion of your homestay fee helps support Flagstaff Family Food Center, Food Bank and Kitchen.

Mahesh purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Mahesh chose Arizona

The property is a great mix of a peaceful rural area with great vistas but 10 minutes from the excitement of a vibrant mountain town and is one of the highest in the country at 7,000 feet in elevation. The summers are warm but not hot like the central Arizona desert. Be prepared for warm summer days (average high is 78 degrees) and chilly nights (average low is 42 degrees)

What makes this cabin unique

A very quiet secluded country setting with great views of the mountains and in the midst of the world’s largest Ponderosa Pine forest.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“This is the best Airbnb I've stayed in. The cabin was clean, cozy, and well stocked, the area was very quiet and far away enough from the main road to be private, and downtown Flagstaff is only a few minutes up the road, so you're not isolated from modern convenience either. Lots of thought and care went into making this A-Frame the best experience it can be, with a well stocked kitchen and bathroom. There's plenty of books, an Xbox for kids (or kids at heart like us), a pair of mountain bikes for a ride around the woods, and plenty of firewood to keep the wood stove alive. Mahesh is a phenomenal host who was very responsive when we needed to contact him, and did everything he could to make sure it was a great stay for us. We hope to book here again someday.”

Beautiful views, cozy and comfortable living quarters, and a peaceful getaway worth every penny. We enjoyed our stay so much we are already planning the next one. Everything we needed was available to us and the scenery-we couldn't get enough. It was perfect.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the A-Frame for 5 days in April. The cabin was perfect. The views out the front and back were beautiful. It was the perfect chance to relax, unplug, and reconnect. Even our dog gave it 5 stars!!

We loved this cozy A-frame. It was a perfect place landing place between our adventures in Page and the Grand Canyon. The wood-burning stove was a treat after driving through a blizzard on the South Rim. We were so busy exploring and hiking we didn't have a chance to drink the wine left for us. Thank you Mahesh​ ​and Mona!

Cozy hideaway

Extremely convenient for travel to the Grand Canyon. Slept like a rock in the bed. Love the Ben Franklin wood stove during the chilly nights.

Cozy and charming mountain cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time staying here. Wish we had one more day! Since arrival about 9"-10" of snow has accumulated and it makes for some stunning scenery. The large windows make it easy to sit inside the warm atmosphere of the cabin and watch the snow fall.

We had no problem finding the cabin or getting around. Mahesh and Mona stayed in touch with us the entire week prior to check in. We would love to come back sometime. So grateful we found such a neat place in a great town!

Beautiful property, cozy cabin

  • 5 of 5

This cozy, adorable cabin is nestled between mountains. Beautiful views, quick drive into Flagstaff and wonderful property owner. Arrived to a bottle of wine and the cabin ready and toasty for us. It was the perfect place for a weekend getaway, we didn't want to leave. Great location for star gazing, enjoying some quiet and relaxing. Will definitely go back.
