About this listing
We live in a gorgeous log cabin and would love to hear your life stories and feed you breakfast in the morning. Homemade bread and granola are our special treats. Stay with your family or friends. Excited to meet you! Tanya, John & schnauzer Sammy
Lovely, cozy log cabin in the mountains of Northern Arizona. Perfect place to relax after a long day of work or travel. We love having guests from all over the world. We'll share stories over homemade 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.
COLD WEATHER NOTICE
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.
Coffee, tea, homemade granola, FRESH HANDMADE BREAD and pastries, beer and whatever else I have in the fridge.
Fenced-in backyard, front and back porch, hammock, rocking chair on the porch, gas grill, forest trails, parking, dog toys and 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
We are eager to hang out with you at the cabin and show you local trails and hangout spots when we are free.

Other Things to Note
OTHER THINGS (AND CREATURES)
We have a 4 year old standard schnauzer Sammy living with us. He is well-trained and very intelligent.
Even though check-in time is flexible, I ask guests to arrive in the evening between 6 and 7 pm if at all possible. I'm a baker and wake up pretty early to make fresh bread and pastries in town.
If you are coming with your dog, let me know ahead of time. Your pet must be 100% house trained and friendly to other dogs and people.
If you have any dietary preferences (vegetarian, vegan etc.) or food allergies (gluten, peanuts, dairy etc.), let me know ahead of time as well.
Other than that, have a safe trip and enjoy your stay at the cabin!
Mornings at the cabin. Oats, nuts, seeds, dried berries and fruit, honey and a bit of coconut oil. That's Tanya's granola
Staying @ Tanya's is a great experience. First of all, she is a really truly Nice person. She helped us a lot figuring out which hike in the Grand Canyon would fit us the most and she is an amazing Baker. Breakfast at her place is a pleasure. I love breakfast and i couldnt Wait to wake up to taste her bread or her brand new cake recipe.
Then, the place. Tanya's house is beautiful and the area really quiet. It´s only 15 mns away from Flagstaff.
Finally, Sammy. Staying @ Tanya's means meeting the cutest dog ever!!
If i go back to Flagstaff, i Will probably come back to Tanya's and if you plan to go there, book immediately her place!
Tanya was a wonderful host. She gave us tips for short trips, healthy breakfast every morning, and was really accommodating to our ever changing plans. Highly recommended!
Tanya was a wonderful host and her log cabin home is welcoming and adorable. She provided great restaurant recommendations and made us feel at home in Flagstaff immediately. She provided a delicious breakfast spread that was perfect fuel for hiking in the canyon. Overall, a great airbnb experience.
Tanya is a very lovely and caring person,her breakfast was delicous. She gave us very useful recommendations for the Canyon! Samy is a cute und good behaving dog! The cabin is very charming,everything was clean and it's quiet during the nights. We could highly recommend her place.
The place matched the description perfectly. Their place was off the beaten path in Flagstaff - close enough to downtown to easily check it out but just a little secluded. Tanya was a great hostess - laid back, welcoming and helpful - and fed us delicious treats! Great place to stay.
Tanya was extremely welcoming to me, my dog and my two year old son upon arrival. The house is very quaint and charming and we immediately felt like we were at home. The breakfast was wonderful; my son kept on saying "very good" as he was chomping away at the muffins. We will definitely be back to escape the Phoenix heat!
We stayed for 2 nights and Tanya was a great host! The house was clean and just as described. She hooked us up with a great breakfast both mornings prior to venturing out. If you're looking to be just a bit outside of the city, this is a great spot.
About the Host, Tanya
Rebellious Soviet. Baker. Trail runner. Grand Canyon guide.
Born in the USSR and raised in Belarus. Been traveling since age 15.
From San Francisco 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 do some freelance technology work, lots and lots of Airbnb hosting, baking for guests and local businesses and adventure guiding in the Grand Canyon.
I love literature. Really enjoy reading books about communism, Soviet Union and Imperial Russia, probably because they help 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.
To me, hosting is about PEOPLE: meeting them, taking care of them, hearing their life stories, drinking wine on the porch, laughing.
My motto is to "live a century in one moment". That's how one Belarusian poet inspired people to live.
Hope to see you at the cabin some day!
