Flax Gulch sets you "In the heart of the Sonoran Desert." This private room with wall-to-wall windows is the perfect space to enjoy the beauty of the surrounding desert and observe local wild animals in their natural habitat!

This property is just a short scenic drive north of the town of Cave Creek and its many restaurants, shops and activities.

Hostess welcomes meeting folks from all regions, nationalities and cultures.

The space
This Flax Gulch room has its own private entrance and offers you a quiet & secluded place to enjoy your stay.

Dine on your outside patio, with comfortable seating and table as you watch colorful sunsets and listen to coyotes howl not far away.

Wake up to a cup of coffee and a beautiful pink sunrise lighting up Black Mountain and the surrounding saguaros.

During your stay you will see lots of lizards, Gambel's quail, bunnies, many birds and the occasional roadrunner, coyotes, mule deer, bobcats, javelina, and snakes, and enjoy viewing mountains and wash, natural vegetation with a number of saguaros and other cacti blooming at various times of the year. Pull curtains for privacy. (Neighbors are more than one-half block away, perhaps not even in residence.) If you have hiking boots, you can stroll the two-acre property - carefully! - for complete immersion in the surrounding desert.

Amenities: microwave, Keurig coffee maker, small fridge (without freezer), toaster, electric cooking pan, parking at the door, queen bed with dual control Select Comfort mattress, TV, Wi-fi, radio/tape & disc player, patio with table and chairs.

Guest access
Guests have access to their own private porch and sitting area just outside the Flax Gulch room. There are plenty of hiking trails in the vicinity.

Other things to note
The space will be most comfortable for only one or two people, but furniture placement can be readjusted to accommodate a third on a single air mattress on the floor (by prior arrangement).

Absolutely no smoking in the room, outdoors, or anywhere on the property, please! Containers for recycling your trash are provided which I'll take to the dump's recycling center. Your garbage I'll put in my compost barrel!

Cave Creek is a small "cowboy" themed village with:
~ a variety of arts and crafts shops, including
Mexican arts and crafts
~ many good restaurants
~ a library and museums
~ a desert park
~ golf courses in town and nearby
~ another small "artsy" town, Carefree, adjoining,
which has a lovely fountain and desert plantings
downtown
~ exciting celebratory events
~ excellent hiking and horseback riding trails at
large nearby parks, in the immediate vicinity and
through town
~ bicycling on local roads (very popular).

Early spring in the Sonoran Desert can bring outstanding blooms of desert flora. Hot air balloon rides, jeep tours, and horse rentals are available nearby. There are a number of churches of various denominations in the area. It is about an hour's drive to downtown Phoenix, 45 minutes to downtown Scottsdale, one-half hour's drive west to Lake Pleasant, one-half hour's drive east to Lake Bartlett (both beautiful parks).

It is nice to walk (or bike) the roads in the immediate locale. There is a shortcut trail of about a mile if you wish to walk to Cave Creek and some local washes are open for walking and horse riding. (But it's too hot in summer!).

Active and perky elderly woman. Room lights up with my smile! Flexible. Friendly. Good listener and conversationalist. Can read and speak some Danish and Swedish. Have lived in Denmark - 50 years ago! Love the desert I live in, its vegetation and its birds and animals. Love windsurfing and deep powder skiing, able to do both. Love all things Scandinavian. Retired. Periodically I do weaving of woolen and rag rugs and table runners, make rose petal and paper bead chains and rosaries, and make strip quilts.

During your stay
I plan to receive you in person to acquaint you with the place. Mostly I'll then leave you to your privacy, but will be pleased to chat if you like, whenever I'm around.
