Guests continue to describe our bed and breakfast property in Northern Arizona as something very special – peaceful, secluded, relaxing, rejuvenating. The quiet of the forest changes people, whether guests are here for a quick getaway and choose to just soak in the comfortable surroundings or are here to see as many sights as possible. Having this little oasis in the pines to come back to at the end of a day touring allows for the rest you sometimes need while traveling. Our guest rooms are fully equipped for a retreat from the world, but our guests are welcome to spend time exploring the rest of the inn. Our location at the end of Sheridan Avenue means we have a great deal of privacy here in the quiet of the edge of the forest.
During our beautiful days and summer evenings, the porch off the dining room in the main house has comfortable seating to watch the hummingbirds, read a book, contemplate life, or join in conversation with other guests. Feel free to bring carry-out food to enjoy a private dinner. There is also an outdoor living space below that porch with rocking chairs and a table for 4 people, available to all our guests. It is accessed from the sidewalk half-way down the driveway.
The forest is home to a variety of wildlife. You may see javelinas, deer, skunk, our unique Kaibab squirrels, fox, lizards, rabbits, and many species of birds. While bobcats, coyotes and mountain lions do inhabit the forest, they are rarely seen, and bears don’t make homes in this area due to a lack of food. We are lucky to have very few flying insects in these parts, and those that you may see are usually only around for a quick season.
Our living room is a cozy place for conversation. We’ve displayed area travel and history books that are available for guests to read while here, and we have an extensive DVD collection in the cabinets for guests to enjoy in the privacy of their rooms. We also have a library of books for swapping in the landing up the stairs in the main house.
We decorate for the seasons and the holidays throughout the living room, dining room and hospitality area, creating a warm and home environment for the comfort and enjoyment of all who enter our doors.
