WHAT TO DO IN THE AREA (specifics included in the Finding Your Niche in Flagstaff book in the house)
o Considered the gateway to the Grand Canyon (1.5 hours) away, Alpine Stone Cottage is in the center of the downtown activity, just 3-4 blocks from the Burlington Northern & Santa Fe Railroad station/Visitor's Center on historic Route 66, Greyhound Bus Depot about 1 mi. away , adjacent to the Northern Arizona University campus, in at the center of the world’s largest Ponderosa Pine forest, and within minutes of a myriad of other national, state and private monuments, parks and museums. In two hours, one can travel to Phoenix or to Lake Powell Recreation Area (including Glen Canyon Dam). Just outside the city limits, there are several small lakes and a reservoir where visitors can enjoy fishing, canoeing or kayaking. The Urban Trail System weaves throughout the city and outlying areas for cyclists and walkers. Winter visitors converge on the Nordic Center for cross country skiing or Arizona Snowbowl for alpine skiing and snowboarding, sledding at the Snow Park at Ft. Tuthill, offering summer visitors a Sky Ride to the top for a glimpse of the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. You might want to plan your visit around a new or favorite interest, like the Rodeo, Dog Sled races, Coconino County Fair, summer indoor and outdoor concerts, or theater performances for all ages.

o FOR THE ACADEMICS, Flagstaff is located within the Colorado Plateau, offering anthropological interests of indigenous peoples (see The Museum of Northern Arizona) and scientific explorations of the geological sites (home to the National Geologic Survey and Moon Rover) (Meteor Crater) including dormant volcanoes and desert formations, or the night sky at Lowell Observatory, highlighted during The Festival of Science in September. There are a variety of festivals celebrating our diverse ethnicities from Native American, Mexican, Celtic, Scandinavian, German and Greek cultures. We even have several culinary and beer festivals.

o If your interests are more in the areas of visual or performing arts, the university and community have a steady of stream of changing museum collections, 4 large live concert venues (2 outdoor and 3 indoor), 6 community theater troupes, and 3+ community dance organizations. Arts in the Park events, the First Friday Art Walk (year round) and Open Studios in August give residents and visitors access to the works of local contemporary artists(URL HIDDEN)

If you just want to explore the beautiful vistas and hiking trails by car, on horseback or on foot, there are options for you.

o Once your booking is accepted you will be given the option to explore your own personal interests by connecting to our concierge website

Historical notes
o At the convergence of Interstates 40 and 17, Flagstaff, Arizona, USA is nestled at the base of a dormant volcano. At an altitude of 7,000 feet, this small city enjoys the aspen and pine forests that rise to the highest biome of the San Francisco Peaks at 12,600 feet to the north. Residents and visitors enjoy all four seasons full of beauty and outdoor activities. Within two hours to the south or east, you will pass from taiga through desert scrub, chaparral, and grasslands to desert. As a university town (Northern Arizona University), we offer the cosmopolitan spectrum as well, full of historical, anthropological, geological, arts and science venues. (Within NAU curriculum there is a large department for TESOL-teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages.) This destination can easily be reached via of bus, plane, train, automobile, and yes, even horseback.

o As the great railroads connected the East and West coasts in the mid 1860’s, the Santa Fe Line took the Southern Route. Soon, the lumber and ranching industry gave birth to Flagstaff, making it an important stop. The post-World War II boom of the automotive industry of the late 1940’s produced a maze of US highways connecting the states east to west and north and south. The famous Route 66, put Flagstaff on the map, as the second California migration began (after the Gold Rush of the 1900’s), soon to be replaced by the Interstate Highway system. In 1947, our Alpine Stone Cottage was completed by Mexican immigrants, who were and are masters of stone work.

o Grand Canyon National Park, a global key attraction, is an hour and a half from downtown Flagstaff, drawing upwards of 6 million visitors a year, making tourism a major industry. Though it is a top draw, there are many other national and state parks or monuments with scenic and historical significance that could consume a month’s worth of day trips. From the Museum of Northern Arizona the geology and anthropology of indigenous people of the Colorado Plateau, to the Lowell Observatory where the planet/star Pluto was discovered, exploring the ancient Indian ruins at Walnut Canyon and Wapatki National Monuments, natural sculptures of Monument Valley, Sunset Crater NM and the inner basin of the San Francisco Peaks, or enjoying historical buildings of Flagstaff’s earliest settlers late in the 19th century, you will learn why its residents still find living here captivating.

We are a retired couple living in Flagstaff since 1984 and have found it the gem of the West. We met in college and went on to have accumulated careers in human resources, insurance adjusting, education, construction, design, and law enforcement at local and state levels. We have done quite a lot of traveling in the US, Europe, and the Caribbean, but still have places we want to see. Our son, Wade, is sharing brawn and brain in this business venture and lives locally, as well. His interests also include renovation, travel and all things outdoors. He is involved in the arts, including photography and theater. His photography can be found adorning the walls of the Cottage. He speaks Spanish and is available around his day job.
