Flagstaff Welcomes Spring

Flagstaff sunsets are fantastic

Flagstaff Welcomes Spring
Okay, so its not officially spring yet but it sure has felt like spring lately. A little dip in the temperatures now & then but on the whole its been pretty nice. The extended forecast is looking for more of the same. Yes, I admit it. We like our sunsets here. But then, sunsets are an Arizona strong suit. Whenever...

Warmer Days in Flagstaff
Here's another in our series of sunsets photos. This one was taken with the Elote Cafe in view. Guests at this top drawer Sedona restaurant are often treated to sunsets such as this. The photo was taken by my daughter who is married to the owner/ head chef. On another note sunny and warmer days have returned to the...

Fascinating Flagstaff Forests
Saw this in the forest recently. What does it look like? Could be a number of different things I suppose. It might be fun to have it right here on ET property. Perhaps a good accompaniment for our various large rocks like the 15 lb rock we brought back from the beaches of Maine. We also have a pretty cool Death Vally...

Spring like weather continues in Flagstaff

Elden Trails B&B has great hiking trails

Spring like weather continues in Flagstaff
Here's an alligator oak tree that's been partially burned in a long ago fire. These trees are extremely resilient. Many such examples can be found on the slopes of Mt. Elden. This one is about 500 yards up slope from Elden Trails. A warm weekend is in store for the Flagstaff area with highs reaching into the mid...

What's Up With That

What's Up With That
Here's another pic from the ET travel files. This large high rise apartment building in Miami with a gaping hole right through it is an odd sight. Why the large opening? They have a monorail system with tracks that run right through this building. One has to wonder what the noise level is like for the people on the lower...

A Flagstaff B&B couple's vacation

Great Escapes
Here is another photo from the ET travel files. Where do you suppose this is? California? nah, Minnesota, nope. Here's a clue, this lake has a resident 10 foot alligator. Guess that gives it away huh? This is basically a private lake behind the home of some close friends in central Florida. We spent three wonderful days...

What Our Guests Are Saying

  • "We had a splendid one night stay at Elden Trails B&B. The studio suite is comfy and quiet with forest trails directly behind the suite with a variety of hiking options. Marnie and Steve are gracious hosts and helped us with dinner and entertainment options in Flagstaff. We can't say enough about how wonderful the breakfast was. We requested a vegan breakfast and it far exceeded our expectations. Plenty of variety and it was very tasty."

  • "Steve and Marney were wonderful hosts and our room was cosy and comfortable. Breakfast was special with everything organic and home made. Walks and wildlife were just out the window and back gate. It was great talking with Steve and Marney over breakfast, they were genuine and engaging hosts. I would recommend this B&B."

  • "We stayed for 2 nights and the experience was memorable. Steve and Marnie were exemplary. The place was spacious, elegant and comfortable. Our breakfast was amazing and should be experienced by everyone. Healthiest breakfast ever. The garden was spectacular and optimized. The best was the bonding with the whole family. Truly beautiful and authentic."

  • "Steve and Marnie are exceptional hosts in an industry (B&Bs) that has attracted too many people who are merely interested in revenues. It is obvious that they have captured the spirit of hospitality that guided B&B's previously. It shows in the lodgings, the food, and their level of helpfulness."

  • "I stayed at Elden Trails in September 2013 for three nights before joining a Grand Canyon hiking tour. It was a beautiful spot, with great access to hiking trails and very close to downtown Flagstaff. The cabin is spacious, comfortable, and very quiet. Breakfast was absolutely delicious and I really enjoyed the company & conversation each morning. Thanks Steve & Marnie for being great hosts!"

  • "This B&B is great! We loved the home like feel of the cottage. The attention to detail, the delightful patio, fabulous breakfast and the hospitality of our hosts make this Bed and Breakfast one we will return to each time we head West."

  • "I stayed 4 nights when on a recent personal retreat. The food was awesome and Marnie packed a breakfast for me for the day I left at 6am. The location was exactly what I was looking for - quiet, access to gorgeous trails and hosts that were most helpful with information. Looking forward to returning there again."

  • "A great experience in bed and breakfasting! The food is healthful and delicious. The ambiance reflects the good taste and congeniality of the innkeepers. Comfort and attention to detail are evident everywhere. Will we stay there again? Emphatically yes! We have already made reservations for our next stay in Flagstaff."

  • "I stayed here with my girlfriend and her sister last month. It couldn't have been better. Although its a few miles from town, it is right at the heart of great hiking trails. Its set back in a quiet neighborhood which was very nice. The room is very cute and clean. The food was the best part. Breakfast was hearty and healthy. The owners are very kind."

  • "Steve and Marnie are exceptional hosts; very solicitous and friendly. The breakfasts were amazing and healthy. The room is very comfortable and cozy with a separate bedroom, roomy living space and nice bathroom. There is a little frig, hot water pot and filtered water. A microwave would have made the room just perfect. Great place to stay!"

  • "Great examples and advocates for sustainable living. This cute studio bed and breakfast provided the quiet night that we needed, unique touches everywhere. Would have enjoyed softer sheets but over all comfortable experience. Owners were great hosts as the left a key and warmed the studio since we were late arrivals. The property backs up to a national forest for our beloved four-legged friends to run free. The most mention-able part of our experience was the breakfast. It was healthy, wholesome and organic. We ate eggs laid that morning from the chickens right outside the studio."

  • "This is our first full summer in AZ and we wanted to get out of the heat of Phoenix. Flagstaff fit the bill and Elden Trails made us glad we came. The innkeepers are very interesting and friendly and the breakfast is delicious. Great hiking and fun historic downtown area."

  • "We spent a quiet night in the private suite at Elden Trails. It is attractively decorated (not frou-frou) and comfortable. Our host delivered fresh coffee at our requested time first thing in the morning. The breakfast was delicious, all made from scratch. The fresh egg layers live on site. Out the back gate we had a snowy walk in the woods at the base of Mt. Elden."

  • "Even though the weather was freezing and it was snowing the hospitality of Steve and Marnie made our stay warm and friendly. They went the extra mile to make sure our stay was comfortable and easy. The convenience to hiking trails was a nice surprise and the breakfasts....well, that's a reason to return all on its own. A big thank you for making our time in Flagstaff wonderful."
