This is a combination B&B in the main house and separate cabins on the property. We stayed in a room in the main house that appeared to be an attic converted to a small suite (#24). One room with a king bed, one with a double bed and a sink and vanity area in each. The small toilet room was in the middle between the two bedrooms with the shower off the room where the couch and TV were located. It was fine for two adults and could be a good space for a family with children. Breakfast was included in the stay, but can't comment on it as it didn't start until 8:30 am...not a good fit for those who start their day early.

When I think of a cabin getaway, I envision a rustic cabin high in the mountains -- or perhaps along the shore of a lake -- where I'm miles away from the city and all its noise, traffic congestion, and conveniences: a place where I can literally unplug from daily existence (and the internet) to commune with nature and unwind. This was not my experience at Arizona Mountain Inn.

My husband and I chose the property for a long weekend getaway based on an internet search. The pictures on the property's website looked inviting and tranquil. Perfect, really. The reality proved to be far different than what we saw on the property's site.

On the plus side, these aren't cookie cutter cabins. We've seen other places where the "cabins on the river" looked like glorified TuffSheds that had been recently trucked in and lined up like motel rooms with a bit of space in between. At Arizona Mountain Inn, each of the cabins is unique. In fact, they all were built between approximately 1949 and 1969, according to the property's website. The cabin we chose (#5, the "Honeymoon Cabin") was clean and adequately furnished. The bed was soft but not saggy -- quite comfortable. The covered porch was perfect for sitting and watching the squirrels chase each other up and down the pine trees that practically abut the buildings. The property has a little playground for kids, and the Inn is generally pet-friendly.

That's where the charm ends.

Unlike the property's website claim, the cabins aren't "secluded." Heck, they're not even located outside the city limits of Flagstaff, let alone 'up in the mountains.' In fact, they're minutes from downtown. On the one hand, this makes the property very convenient for visiting the attractions. But on the other hand -- and this was a HUGE minus for us -- the traffic noise is terrible. All morning and afternoon long, we heard the constant hum (and honking, and squealing tires, and sirens) of vehicles on the interstates and the highway that leads to the cabins. Also, the cabins are located near the airport, so there's a regular whine of small craft taking off or landing. This seriously detracted from our ability to enjoy a little 'peace and quiet.' There never was any peace and quiet during our 3 days there.

We also thought the cabins were overpriced, considering the non-existent service provided. Look at it this way: for the comparable price of a nice hotel room, we had the privilege of performing our own maid services. We had to do all our own dishes and hump our own trash to the dumpster. In fact, there was a vaguely implied penalty for not leaving the cabin in the same condition in which we found it. If we'd wanted or needed fresh linens during our stay, we would have had to take the soiled linens to the office and exchange them for clean ones. It's not that I mind doing dishes, but it seemed to us that we should have received a higher level of service for the price.

All in all, the negatives outweighed the positives for us. We'll continue our quest for a nice, affordable cabin rental in the Four Corners region, but we won't be staying at the Arizona Mountain Inn again.

My family and I had a family emergency and were still charged FULL rate price. They charged my credit card for the stay multiple times and even lied to my credit card company in order to verify expenses. This place is just looking for a quick buck and will do whatever it takes to get it. Be aware!

Various sized cabins on property. Free firewood was supplied daily! The area is so quiet and dark at night, you can see thousands of stars. There are no TV's, but they would defeat the rustic feel of the Inn.
Our cabin was spotless, and well equipped with a comfy bed, basic kitchen utensils, etc.

Our group of 50 rented several cabins here for a family reunion. It was a great base for exploring the area, and also allowed comfortable indoor and outdoor space for our large group to gather. Grand Canyon, Sedona, Oak Creek and many interesting ancient Native American sights were a short drive away. The property is wooded and feels private, even though it is really not adjacent to the national forest; it's adjacent to Flagstaff's strip malls, the freeway and the airport (but you can't tell once you're on the property). The cabins worked well for our group. They were rustic but comfortable. Each family could have their own cabin, or in some cases two or three families rented one of the larger cabins together to save money. Three couples rented the Hogan and we had all our communal dinners there. We rented a gas BBQ and extra tables so we could all sit outside together. The volleyball court got a lot of use. The playground needs updating. There are a lot of rusty metal components. The staff was friendly and helpful; the laundry was great to have available. Grocery and convenience stores are less than 5 minutes away. The weather was pleasant in July (70s to 80s) although they do tend to get afternoon rain showers.

My husband and I spent one night at the Arizona Mountain Inn. We personally felt it was too much for what you got. Sure the location is good, in the woods away from the hustle and bustle of town, very dark. The cabins were not worth the money they charge. Sheets are thin, two skinny bars of soap and that's about it. You are asked to remove your garbage to the bins away from the cabins and also make sure you leave the cabin the way you found it. Our price for the night was not cheap and we were expecting so much more but did not see it. If you are a family with small kids or perhaps having a family reunion this would work for you. If you are looking for a romantic time in the woods in a cozy cabin... I would suggest keep searching.

june 2010 was our first visit to az mountain inn, after visiting several az cabin locations, and we absolutely loved it. the property is very quiet and peaceful with tall pines and adjacent trails, sand volleyball, outdoor ping pong, and a fort and playground for the little ones. the cabin was perfect - large, but well-stocked, very clean and comfortable. lots of space for kids to run and play just outside cabin. large picnic table, grill, outdoor chairs provided. great proximity to flagstaff activities - we visited lowell observatory, lake mary, and sunset crater as easy, half-day trips. easily accessible from phoenix and close to i-17, but feels very remote once on the property. we had a wonderful time and will definitely return in 2011!!!
