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. The kitchen is small but well thought out with everything needed to cook full meals, and the dining area has a dining table and placemats for four people.

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.

Great little cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with our two teenage sons stayed here for 3 nights and felt like this was our home. Very well appointed with games to play, Netflix access, and within walking distance to downtown. We parked our car and only drove it when absolutely necessary - so nice to walk! Just enough room for us all (including living room futon for an extra sleep spot). Connie was very friendly, responsive and helpful. Hope to have the opportunity to stay here again.

Great Little Cottage, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

It's a wonderful little place, cozy and well kept. The kitchen has everything we needed. The neighborhood is quiet, and not far from downtown. The place has all kinds of television access. It has one off-street, driveway parking space. We only had one car, so that was no problem for us.

Owner's Response: Thanks Deborah, it was my pleasure hosting you. And normally we have more parking along the fence, but our big snow claimed those spaces for a while! Hope to see you again, best, Connie

Walk Downtown from here.

  • 4 of 5

The main reason we chose the Cottage on Birch was because we wanted to walk downtown to the the shops and bars and restaurants. It worked out great! The Cottage was clean and comfortable. It had everything we needed, including a washer and dryer so we could catch up on our laundry. And Connie was a great host who gave us many ideas on places to go and things to see. The only downside was the only TV programming available was streaming. It was mentioned in the description that there was no cable, and I don't have cable or a dish at home either. But I do have an antenna so I can pick up local programming. I learn about a city by watching it's local programming. But I didn't go to Arizona to watch TV anyhow, so it wasn't a big deal.

Owner's Response: Emmett, thanks for the review. It was a pleasure having you in the neighborhood for a week! I saw your mention of no cable--anyway, in Flagstaff we no longer have a local news station so you would only get Phoenix news. I should have mentioned to you that our local NPR radio station, KNAU, has good local coverage. Hope to see you again in Flagstaff! Connie

Great stay at this great location!

My family had a great stay at the cottage. The location is terrific, it is really close to downtown and to NAU. It was a nice size for the 4 of us and we had everything we needed. We would definitely stay here again.

Spotless, cozy, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cottage with our baby. The cottage was spotless enough to lay here down anywhere. The beds were very comfortable, in fact it was the best sleep I received in months with a baby! The cottage is the perfect location with just a short walk from hiking trails, a park and downtown. The owner was extremely helpful and kind and made our stay even more welcoming. It was a beautiful weekend when we were there and it was lovely to enjoy the sun on the outdoor patio. We would definitely stay here again!

Wonderful cottage, great location

  • 5 of 5

Connie's wonderful cottage made our stay in Flagstaff a trip to remember. It was in a great location---easy to walk downtown or leave the city for day trips in the area. The neighborhood was very pleasant for walks; the cozy patio wonderful for morning tea or evening wine and cheese. The cottage was very clean and provided everything a person could need. Thanks, Connie, for everything!

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.
