The Space

Lovely, cozy and spacious log cabin in the mountains of Northern Arizona. Quiet neighborhood, perfect place to relax after a long day of work or travel. We love having guests from all over the world. We will share stories over delicious breakfast and do everything to make your stay with us authentic, peaceful and memorable. You can even book us for a day-long Grand Canyon tour. Message me for details. See you at the cabin!

We live in the mountains where temperatures drop at night even during summer months. So the cabin gets pretty chilly at night.

Keeping that in mind, please pack extra layers of clothing as you head our way - we will also be happy to offer some extra blankets and layers if need be. Unlike Phoenix, Tuscon and Sedona, Flagstaff gets quite cool, especially after sundown. T-shirt and shorts won't do.

Guest Access

Coffee, tea, spicy chai tea made from scratch, homemade granola, FRESH HANDMADE BREAD, beer and whatever else I have on the stove or in the fridge. I make lots of Eastern European meals and breads which you are welcome to try any time of the day.

Fenced-in backyard, front and back porch, hammock, gas grill, forest trails, parking, dog toys and delicious homemade dog treats.

WiFi, wood stove, towels and bedding, books, recliner, leather couch, laptop, blender, toaster, microwave, snacks.

We also have 2 mountain bikes which you are more than welcome to borrow during your stay. Flagstaff and Sedona are prime biking locations in the United States.

Interaction with Guests

If you are up for it, we are more than willing to join you on your local adventures, hang out with you at the cabin, hike or run local forest trails with you, give you a tour of the Grand Canyon, recommend great spots to visit (and join you, if you like) and, of course, cook and bake for you. You are also welcome to explore the area on your own - up to you.

The Neighborhood


Kachina Village is a small log cabin community 8 miles away from downtown Flagstaff. Beautiful forest trails all over the place, clean & cool mountain air, beautiful cabins everywhere, peace and quiet - that's why we love Kachina, and I'm sure you will as well.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Tanya was just a terrific hostess - we were on a road trip, completely confused as to changing time zones, and misjudged our travel times, but Tanya was totally cool and accomodating, and our stay was lovely. Everything was super comfortable, she's wonderful company, and the breakfast she made was delicious and just what we needed before getting back on the road.

  • Tanya was a gracious host. Her dog was adorable and her cabin was very charming. She made a delicious homemade breakfast that I enjoyed very much.

  • So fun! Tanya was fantastic.... Very accommodating to our changing plans and breakfast was amazing. My kiddo loved lounging in the hammock and I could not get enough of the rocking chair on the deck. Beautiful weather and beautiful people. Sammy was a highlight ;o) Thanks for everything!

  • Tanya was born to host, because I had the most wonderful stay with her! Her cabin was a cozy respite from battling the road all day, and made sure we were 100% comfortable at all times. Her dog Sammy was HILARIOUS and cuddly, and made it hard for me to leave in the morning. There's parking, and it's super close to both Flagstaff restaurants (yum), Sedona, and a great place to stay if you want to visit the Canyon. I totally would've taken up on Tanya's offer for a tour if I had planned things better- if only to listen to more of her stories. She's wonderful to chat with, and can we talk about her homemade bread and granola? Amazing! Highly recommend.

  • Tanya is a very nice prson and a perfect host!
    The breakfast was amazing with a home made bread and food.

  • Our stay at Tanya’s was great! It was a shame that it was only one night, we really felt a connection and could have easily spend more time together. Grab a beer or wine, sit with her on the back porch, let conversations flow, pet the dog (THE dog!! :-) and enjoy the moment. And their bread… nothing more to say than YUMMY!!

    Also the place itself, the wooden house, gave a really nice touch to the stay. For the breakfast she served a lot of delicious homemade goodies (Jelly, Granola, etc.. ) that you must try!

    Overall - go there, if you’re around.

  • We had such a great time staying with Tanya. She is such a kind and well informed host. Loved chatting with her over her homemade breakfast. Her home was clean and comfortable and we hope to stay there again if we are ever in the area.

  • We only stayed one night at Tanya, but our stay was very nice, wooden chalet charmed us, breakfast was sublime with homemade bread and excellent jam. We thank Tanya for her hospitality, kindness and availability.

  • AWESOME. Tanya was so nice and helpful, very educated but so down to earth. The room was just like the picture clean and cozy. The cabin was just 5 min. off of I 17 The breakfast was the healthiest I have eaten in years! Tanya prepares the most amazing bread the night before it just melts in your mouth. You would have to travel over seas to Belarus and hope you can find someone that has the same hundred year old recipes that Tanya does. My 12 year old son and I also got a world history lesson that we could never get in the states. Tanya was so amazing today my son was educated my friends about European politics. We can't wait to go back!

  • My adult daughter, her dog and I needed a heat escape from Phoenix and some hiking time. Tanya's welcoming cabin fit our simple needs perfectly!! Our own room with 2-beds, a hot shower and a most gracious host who fixed a delicious, healthy breakfast before we left for our day hike in the San Francisco Peaks. That nite, after cleaning ourselves up, we ate at a new-to-us restaurant in town recommended by Tanya - Criollo. It was excellent! Next morning Tanya and her amazing dog, Sammy, took us for a short hike on one of the trails accessible from the cabin, before our drive back to the heat in Phoenix. Tanya is an intelligent, interesting, active, health-conscious host who is also an expert creator of handcrafted bread! We enjoyed our stay and our "new friend" and would not hesitate to return.

Rebellious Soviet from Belarus. Europe schooled, New York trained, Kansas chilled, technology enamored. Huge fan of international education and cultural exchange. Trail runner. Grand Canyon guide. Allergic to cities. Born in the Soviet Union and raised in Belarus, I've been traveling since age 15. From the Bay Area to the Baltics, to the US East Coast and then to Kansas, back to Belarus and then back to the States. Fell in love with Flagstaff and decided to just stay here. Do not regret my decision for a minute! When you come here you'll know what I mean. I am involved in an international internship business bringing in young people from overseas for carer training in the US. I also do some freelance web development work, lots and lots of Airbnb hosting and adventure guiding in Grand Canyon through a startup called Tripzaar. I love literature! Vladimir Nabokov is one of my favorite writers (love all his work except for Lolita). I really enjoy reading stuff about communism, Soviet Union and Imperial Russia, probably because it helps me understand where I come from and who I am. I also love trail running with my standard schnauzer Sammy and teaching him cool tricks. We are almost ready to start competing in dog agility contests. Sammy loooves agility training! I find that many people host on Airbnb because of the money. To me, hosting is about PEOPLE: meeting them, taking care of them, hearing their travel stories, drinking wine on the porch, laughing. This is what hosting is all about, if you ask me. When I host my guests, I fuss over them in my typical Slavic way: I will ask them a million questions to make sure they are really comfortable. I will bake fresh bread for them and make fresh breakfast granola, brew coffee and spicy chai tea and offer whatever tasty treats I have in the fridge. I know I don't have to do this, but I WANT to. Because I believe that whatever you give you will get back tenfold. This is how I host every single time, no exceptions. My motto is to "live a century in one moment". That's how one Belarusian poet inspired people to live. I concur. Don't wait for tomorrow, don't wait for next year. Live life to the fullest NOW because now is really all we have. Hope to see you at the cabin some day! Tanya
