About the property

Cozy but modern cottage that is designed for your comfort in the center of town!

The Cottage on Birch is in Flagstaff's Historic Townsite residential neighborhood, 8 blocks from the center of Historic Downtown. It is the perfect base for year-round activities in and around Flagstaff.

The cozy two bedroom, one bath cottage has a queen bed in the first bedroom, and two twins (that can be made into a king bed) in the second bedroom.

There is wifi and a smart DVD player, plus a bluetooth soundbar to use with music from your own device.

The house is light, airy, and sunny year-round. When the weather is warm (usually from Mid-May through September--sometimes earlier or later) you can enjoy the beautiful yard, comfortable seating, 6-person outdoor dining table, BBQ, and lounge chairs on the lawn under the crab apple tree.

Whatever your interests--from relaxing to enjoying downtown nightlife to hiking and outdoor sports, the Cottage on Birch is the perfect place to stay in Flagstaff.

About Constance Taylor

I have lived in Flagstaff for 24 years--from 1980 to 2002, then left and returned again in 2013. I am excited to share this place in the BEST part of Flagstaff with you, my guests!

I am a professional woman who is passionate about travel, food, and culture and sharing these experiences with others. I'm an avid cook and a frequent traveler within the western U.S. and Europe (especially Italy), but have visited many other places on the globe over the years. I don't travel as a tourist, but like to live in places like a local while I am there. I am excited to share this experience with others when they stay in my lovely downtown Flagstaff property.

Constance Taylor purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Constance Taylor chose Arizona

This cottage was built as a mother-in-law cottage sometime in the 50s or 60s behind the original historic 1923 home. I have lovingly updated the cottage, keeping it cozy and cute, but modernizing it along the way. The beds are comfy, the kitchen is well equipped, and the cottage is clean as a whistle.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is behind the original 1923 home, and was one of the few on the street when it was built. The front home and the cottage share a patio and gas BBQ. The yard is open to the neighborhood, which gives guests a great feeling of being a part of this beautiful historic area.

The perfect stay in historic Flagstaff

  • 5 of 5

From our first contact with Connie to our last good-byes, our five weeks in her cottage was perfect. It was very clean and comfortable and even a place to plug in our electric car. If she could have controlled the weather, she would have gladly. We happen to be from Tucson, as it turned out during record breaking heat. Being in Flagstaff was a relief, but unusually hot as well. Connie brought in fans which were used to keep us cool in the daytime.

At night we just opened the windows which kept us cool for a good sleep. The cottage has everything we needed, location was perfect, Connie's great attitude to help us out with any request, any inquiry was always positive, friendly, mixed with concern for us. Our privacy was respected...however we were invited to use the lovely shared backyard. Morning tea in "our" sitting area, dinners on "their" patio table. Flowers and shade were everywhere. It felt, and actually was, perfect for us.

Owner's Response: It was such a pleasure having you both in the "neighborhood" for over a month! I loved our chats and yes, if I could, we would not had had that Flagstaff heat wave! Hope to see you soon, Connie

Nice cottage -great location in Flagstaff

  • 4 of 5

We just stayed 3 nights in Birch Cottage and feel it fit our needs well. There was ample living space for myself and my two older boys. The two bedrooms, though not large, were perfect after spending all day outdoors visiting local tourists sites. The beds were very comfortable. We also had use of a washer and dryer and that came in very handy.

One big advantage staying here is we were able to walk to downtown restaurants and shops instead of having to find parking -which we heard would be difficult.

I will definitely recommend this place for family/friends.

The Cottage on Birch is in Flagstaff's Historic Townsite residential neighborhood, 8 blocks from the center of Historic Downtown, and two blocks from Thorpe Park and an extensive urban trail system (FUTS). In the spring, summer, and fall there are lots of festivals, music events, and arts fairs. In the the winter you can enjoy skiing, snowboarding, and winter sports. Year-round, there are great restaurants, bars, music, and arts events just minutes away by foot, bicycle, or car.

The cottage is convenient to Lowell Observatory, the Museum of Northern Arizona, Coconino Center for the Arts, Northern Arizona University, The Arboretum and Flagstaff, Walnut Canyon National Monument.

Flagstaff is 140 miles north of Phoenix, 79 miles southeast of the Grand Canyon South Rim, and 30 miles from Sedona via Oak Creek Canyon. It is an excellent location to base outdoor trips in Northern Arizona, and a leaping off point for Four Corners and the National Parks of Utah and Colorado.

But, the best thing about the cottage is its location in the center of the Historic Townsite, a quiet, residential neighborhood. When the weather is warm (usually from Mid-May through September--sometimes earlier or later) you can enjoy the beautiful yard, comfortable seating, 6-person outdoor dining table, BBQ, and lounge chairs on the lawn under the crab apple tree. People walk dogs, bicycle, and even stop to say hi if you're interested! It's a two block walk to Thorpe Park which is a grassy playground and tennis courts, and from there you can walk, run, or bike along miles of trails in the Flagstaff Urban Trails System (FUTS).

Whatever your interests--from relaxing to enjoying downtown nightlife to hiking and outdoor sports, the Cottage on Birch is the perfect place to stay in Flagstaff.
