Ski and Sun Fun in Flagstaff
Pack your bags; it’s time to travel to the Grand Canyon State for a week of enticing adventure, gratifying exploration, and spellbinding scenery! Whether it's winter, summer or fall, enjoy the brilliance of Flagstaff.
Bring the whole family to this three-bedroom, two-bathroom abode located among the towering pine trees at the base of Flagstaff’s high country mountains. Mountains, trees, deer, and elk surround the sprawling space, while fresh air, pine scent, and wildlife evoke an instant sense of peace and calmness upon your arrival.
Big Sky Lodge features rustic post and beam construction and decor to provide mountain living at its best. The 2,700 square foot home invites you to sit back and relax in the great room with a family-favorite movie as a glowing fireplace warms the space. Visiting in the summer months? No problem—central AC is available for your total comfort. When stomachs start to growl, the kitchen is fully equipped with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops for preparing and serving home-cooked meals.
Drift off to sleep easily in three comfortable bedrooms. The master boasts a cathedral ceiling with oversized windows that gaze outward towards the ponderosa pines. The room is appointed with a beautiful brick fireplace, king bed, office desk, and a luxurious ensuite featuring a double vanity and walk-in shower. The second bedroom also features a king-sized bed, while the third bedroom sports a full bunk bed on the bottom with a twin on top (they can also be side-by-side), and office desk. There's a large L-shaped sofa in the living room (non-pull out) that could sleep two more people if needed, for a total of nine guests.
Big Sky Lodge offers plenty of luxury between its indoor/outdoor living spaces. After a day of mountain biking or hiking, come home to 2 wood-burning fireplaces and sunroom for total relaxation. Then, hang out on the deck underneath the sunshine while your crew grills up a delicious dinner!
Big Sky Lodge is situated a little over an hour from the Grand Canyon and close to all the fun and recreation that Flagstaff offers during all four seasons.
