Out of 12 places we stayed on this trip, my wife Lisa liked this the best, it's 5 minutes from the Flagstaff/Phoenix freeway, an hour to Sedona via the very scenic Hwy 89a and only 12 minutes to Historic Downtown Flagstaff, therefore this central location is an all around excellent one from which to explore the area.
Although minutes from the freeway the setting is very 'ranch country' and absolutely silent at night.
The accommodation is privately owned by Wendy, the standards are high throughout and the freshly cooked breakfasts are yummy and wholesome, something different each day. I would have liked to see some fruit, yoghurt etc on the breakfast bar, this would have added an extra choice dimension to breakfast, not a complaint but maybe something to consider.
Wendy has lots of local knowledge and also runs a wine shop from the site that holds regular 'tasting sessions' if you want to sample the local area produce.
Next door (400m down the road) is the local Mountainaire Bar which serves basic American fare, beers and wines if you want a night without driving
