10 Relaxing Pet-Friendly Cabins in Flagstaff, Arizona

by Hailey Hudson

Flagstaff is an excellent destination for humans and dogs alike, but finding the right place to stay — even months in advance — can be a chore.

Fortunately for you, we’ve done the legwork and picked out a fine selection of pet-friendly cabins in the Flagstaff area. Flagstaff is pet-friendly and has lots of options for activities do with dogs. Take the self-guided Flagstaff Public Art Tour and get some exercise with your dog at the same time.

Flagstaff’s home to eight local breweries, and pets are welcome either indoors or outdoors at every one. Or you can explore one of the many hikes surrounding Flagstaff. There are even two off-leash dog parks in the city.

Whatever activities you choose to enjoy, play hard with your pet — because you know you can look forward to crashing in one of these cozy cabins each night when you’re all played out.

A-Frame on 1.5 Acres

flagstaff A-Frame Cabin

A-Frame cabins have a special kind of charm, and this one has a loft and plenty of land to boot. Located on 1.5 acres adjacent to the Coconino National Forest, this 755 square foot cabin sleeps four people and, of course, your dogs — no cats allowed, however.

Although small, this charming cabin is famous and highly sought after: not only was it featured in an American Eagle Outfitters campaign, but it’s also been featured in Travel + Leisure, Food and Wine, and People magazine as Arizona’s most wished-for property on Airbnb last year. While located in a quiet, rural area in the forest, you’ll only be a 15 minute drive from the activity of downtown Flag.

The cabin has recycled sustainable building materials and three decks. There are a few things to note — the cabin has no air conditioning; no TV; no Internet; and there is a quiet time between 9 PM and 7 AM. The cabin does have cell service, a DVD player, and an Xbox. Make sure your dog is house trained, doesn’t get on the furniture, and doesn’t stay in the cabin alone.

Cabin Fever

Located just south of Flagstaff, this moderately priced cabin is dog friendly — you’ll find pet beds, a water bowl, and treats in the cabin — but does not allow any pets besides dogs. There is a $50 additional fee for the first dog, and if you have multiple dogs, $25 for each additional canine.

If your dog weighs over 100 pounds, the owner asks that you send more information about your dog. Other features of the cabin: a hammock and fire ring in the backyard, deliciously comfortable mattresses topped with feather down comforters, and a large front and rear patio. Each set of guests receives coffee and fresh baked goods.

At $383 per night, this cabin is a little more expensive, but worth the money. It sleeps 12 people in its four bedrooms — making it a great choice for a small family reunion — and is located in a prime location with views of the San Francisco Peaks.

Inside, the cabin’s aesthetic is defined by majestic 25 foot vaulted ceilings, floor to ceiling windows to take in the view, a pool table, and three fireplaces. Dogs are welcome as long as they don’t get on the furniture, and they can enjoy the 5,000 square foot fully-fenced dog run outside. What’s more, this cabin even lets you bring horses if that’s your thing. The property includes a barn, stables, and space for grazing.

This A-frame cabin is located on 100 acres just between Sunset Crater Volcano and Wupatki National Monuments — 75 miles away from the Grand Canyon, 45 minutes away from downtown Flagstaff. You’ll find hiking trails right out the back door as the cabin borders National Forest land, and you’ll have beautiful views of Roden Crater, the Hopi Mesas, and the Navajo Reservation.

This is an off-the-grid cabin, so you won’t have cell service, Wi-fi, or television — the entire cabin is solar powered. The first floor of the cabin has a kitchen, bathroom, and living area; the second floor has the master bedroom and loft; and the third floor (only accessible by ladder) has a set of bunk beds.

The sunrise, sunset, falling stars, full moons, and Milky Way are the biggest selling points of this cabin.

The cabin is all on one level. Outside, enjoy a barbecue grill, fire pit, and the neighborhood access to hiking trails. Inside, you’re provided with Internet, a washer and dryer, and more. Pets are allowed with conditions: bring one small or medium-sized dog that does not get on the furniture or any bedding.

The living area has leather seating, a Wii, and big windows that provide lots of natural lighting, plus the kitchen is spacious and holds basic supplies as well as offering bar seating.

Survialist Fugitive, Death-Row Folk Hero: Danny Ray Horning

Following his escape from Florence State Prison in May 1992, convicted bank-robber turned fugitive Danny Ray Horning went on the run for seven weeks, resulting in the largest manhunt in Arizona history. Known as “Rambo” to his pursuers because of his skill at avoiding capture in the wilderness, Horning achieved folk hero status among the general public — viewed as something of a blue-collar Robin Hood. Unknown to the masses at the time, Horning had a dark and disturbing history back home in California’s Central Valley. As a suspect in a 1990 dismemberment murder case and convicted child molester, Horning was not your average fugitive. A tale of cold-blooded murder, wilderness survival, and much, much more: this is the true story of Danny Ray Horning.

Exploring Pioneer Living History Museum: An Authentic, Unfinished Wild West

The Pioneer Living History Museum has an excellent collection of old buildings and period-accurate memorabilia, but for all its charm, it still feels like the town left behind. And that’s exactly the village’s appeal. If you want a polished, movie-set version of the west, go to Rawhide. If you want the slow, weary pace of life in a frontier town never fully realized, the Museum has your number, and in that sense it offers a more realistic western experience than many tourist attractions in the metro area.

Cookstove Trail: A Respite in the “Cool” Pines

On a clear and sunny November day, my wife and I loaded up our little Toyota Prius for a weekend trip to Oak Creek Canyon. With a reservation to stay the night in a cabin at the Forest Houses Resort, I was itching to grab a hike in Sedona along the way. As is often the case, my wife’s intuition was much more accurate than mine. Here’s a rough approximation of our exchange as we drove out of town: WIFE: “It’s Saturday, don’t you think the trails will be really busy in Sedona today?” ME: “It’s November. Tourist season is dying off. It’ll be fine!” I should have known better. God, should I have known better.
