“Consistently a pleasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

The Innkeepers continue to run a splendid place. Richard is so amiable; he had a fire going and sat with the guests who wished to talk. Breakfast is both artistic and delicious. I get some of my best sleeps at this place. The front porch swing remains one of my favorite places on Earth.

Only disappointment?: I miss the train whistles which were once in the distance (so soothing!).

Room Tip: one room is on the main floor (no stairs); one room has a fireplace; another has a balcony to the vi...

We took an impromptu overnight vacation to Flagstaff and arrived in town without a reservation. We had always wanted to go to a Bed & Breakfast, so when I started to make calls to check availability, my naivete showed. The first B&B I talked to told me that B&Bs are usually booked a month or two in advance, but he knew that the Starlight Pines might still have one room available. That gentleman also served as Flagstaff's B&B Ambassador by telling me that the tax rates for hotels in Flagstaff is 14%, while the B&B rate is 3%. That was super information to know as we were trying to make a decision on where to stay.

I immediately called Richard at the Starlight Pines B&B, and yes, he actually had two rooms available because of a last-minute cancellation. We headed over immediately.

Richard had us at "hello"! What a warm, welcoming man he is! Not having had a B&B experience before ("B&B virgins," as Richard called us), we didn't know what to expect. But how wonderful to feel as if we were being welcomed into someone's home! We took a walk through the beautiful home. I think Richard said it was built 16 years ago, but it's a replica of a Victorian home. Beautiful porch. Beautiful decor. Very, very clean. A kitchen to die for.

Richard asked what we planned to do while we were in town, and we mentioned that we wanted to go to the Lowell Observatory. He disappeared for about 20 seconds and came back with two discount coupons for the observatory! What nice service!

He told us that breakfast (souffle) would be served at 8:30am. Because I am recovering from breast cancer treatment and still moving pretty slowly, we told him we would forgo breakfast and sleep in.

We stayed in the Art Deco bedroom, which was just wonderful. We told Richard the next morning that our only learning was that we should have opened the window in the bedroom to let the cool evening breeze in before we went into town. That would have made the room temperature much more pleasant for us (we love a cold room to sleep in). We won't make that mistake next time! We're from Phoenix, so we love cool weather!

The bedroom was immaculate, and it has an attached bathroom. Claw-foot tub, beautiful antique fixtures and furniture. Again, very, very clean. We were entirely comfortable there.

One side note: Richard has two beautiful small dogs that had been very well behaved when we arrived. When we returned from dinner in town at about 10:30pm, we used our guest key to get into the home. We laughed because those two pups were sacked out on their beds in the foyer and didn't open their eyes when we came into the house! They're obviously used to folks they don't know coming and going. GREAT B&B dogs!

Sure enough, we got rolling well after the 8:30am breakfast, but Richard greeted us with an offer of coffee and a beautiful fruit bowl, which he made on the fly. Given that we had declined his regular breakfast fare (which sounded so yummy), we were so touched that he would drop everything to create those beautiful and delicious fruit bowls for us.

We are definitely going to return to the Starlight Pines B&B. Don't hesitate to make a reservation here. You won't be disappointed!

Room Tip: For those with disabilities or trouble with stairs, there is a beautiful downstairs room with a king...

How often do you pick your destination based on a B&B? We do! We've gotten to know Flagstaff, AZ, and its wonderful environs because we love staying at Starlight Pines Bed and Breakfast. We've visited the Grand Canyon (North and South Rims), toured ancient ruins, hiked the San Francisco Peaks, visited Sedona, strolled and eaten in downtown Flagstaff (just a few minutes away), and never have had a boring trip to this lovely small city. But the best part of each stay always centers on Starlight Pines, where the hosts, Richard and Michael, make us feel like we are in an extension of our own home (only cleaner). We've stayed in each of the four bedrooms and like them all. Breakfast is served in the inviting dining room and it's always delicious and just the right amount: expect your day to be energized, not overburdened, by these perfectly proportioned meals. Conversation is never lacking as the fellow guests have been stimulating, and our hosts are experts at guiding their guests into delightful, sometimes hilarious, evenings in the living room or on the spacious front porch. Retiring to your well-appointed room with its relax-to-the-bone comfortable bed and, perhaps, a giant claw foot tub instills the peace and calm that one truly hopes to find while on vacation. Starlight Pines exemplifies everything a great B&B should be.

Made a weekend getaway from the hot valley(s) of Tucson (and Phoenix) to the cooler pines of Flagstaff -- lucky for us, the B&B where we've stayed before was booked and we decided to try out Starlight Pines instead.

Gracious and welcoming host, Richard, made us feel right at home immediately. The rooms have just the right amount of period pieces -- it's a relatively new property (built in the 1990s) with decor and architecture more in tune with the 1890s.

Breakfasts were scrumptious and filling, keeping us energized all day without having to interrupt our busy schedule. (We really liked the smiley fruit faces that greeted us Sunday morning.)

Helpful hosts with lots of local knowledge kept us right on track. Interesting fellow guests to meet and greet over breakfast -- lots of shared experiences.

While it isn't in the center of town, and there is a little bit of train whistle noise, it's not in the least bit obnoxious -- and after all, Flagstaff isn't THAT big -- we weren't more than five to ten minutes away from whatever we wanted to do.

Thanks for a wonderful weekend getaway!

What an awesome place! My new bride and I made this lovely B & B our choice to honeymoon in and we weren't disappointed. Richard and Michael were the most wonderful hosts. The food was tasty and drinking coffee on the porch in morning was perfect. They have a lovely little dog named Taz. We were very impressed with the cleanliness of the rooms, spotless and very romantic. I have stayed in two other Bed and Breakfasts in Flagtaff and they don't compare. If you plan a trip to Flagsaff, don't miss it!

This was our first experience in the US with a B & B. Our first experience with a B&B in Flagstaff. It was wonderful. Intimate in the sense of relaxing, conversing, sharing time and space with other travelers on life's journey in the cool pines of Arizona. They accommodations and the delightfully filling breakfast's were the artistic presentation of our Host Richard. Thank you Richard for making our weekend in Flagstaff to enjoy our Navajo Native Culture wonderful. We will return.

Room Tip: We enjoyed the Peacock room. Two very comfortable beds for two independent travelers. Windows that...
