Forest Houses Resort is situated on 20 wooded acres in upper Oak Creek Canyon. Sixteen uniquely designed houses crafted from native boulders and log beams feature fine views of the canyon and forest. Beneath the canyon walls and multi-colored cliffs, Oak Creek runs by the property – a clear, cool, continuously flowing mountain stream.
The canyon floor, 1,500 – 2,000 feet below the rim, is shaded and cooled by giant Ponderosa Pine and Douglas Fir.
Oak Creek is lined with lush sycamores, walnuts, alders, willows, flowering shrubs and wildflowers.
Summer temperatures are pleasant, the nights cool.
Winter brings several snowfalls as the resort is just above the snowline at an altitude of one mile.
Close to the resort are several spectacular trail walks and scenic hikes varying from relaxing to strenuous and providing opportunities to explore the unusual geological formations and vegetation of the canyon.
Beautiful trail walks, scenic hikes, birdwatching and wildlife observation, photography, trout fishing, creek swimming and relaxation. Nearby in Flagstaff and Sedona are golf, horseback riding, tennis, spas, restaurants, museums, theaters, and art galleries. We are an easy drive to the Grand Canyon, Painted Desert, Antelope Canyon, Walnut Canyon, Montezuma Castle, Tuzigoot National Monument and the bustling “ghost” town of Jerome, or a longer day trip to Navajo and Hopi country, Monument Valley and the Petrified Forest.
