It is said that Mountain lions favor the top of this peak as there is no established human trail and few people venture up there. From the vantage point afforded by this mountain top the mountain lions are able to view a fairly large...

Here it is, May 1st and look at the snow on the mountain. We even had a trace of snow here overnight. This view is from the Elden Trails B&B patio looking at Mt. Elden. The forest was alive this morning with a rich forest duff fragrance and a skiff of snow covering the wet grass. The skies remain cloudy for now and we...

What Our Guests Are Saying

  • "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."

  • "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 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."

  • "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 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 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 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."

  • "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."

  • "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 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!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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."
