To protect the forests during hot and dry weather conditions, Coconino National Forest will be fully closed beginning 6/23/21 and will remain closed until the area receives sufficient rainfall. This includes Slide Rock State Park, West Fork Trail, hiking trails, campgrounds, roadside pull-offs and day use areas in the canyon. This does NOT affect Forest Houses Resort as we are private property. We are open and welcoming guests! You are able to enjoy our lawn and grounds, swim in Oak Creek along our property, and experience quiet and relaxation. Highway 89A and roads to us will remain open, as well as restaurants, stores, Sedona and Flagstaff.
Thank you for helping to protect our forests and keeping Oak Creek Canyon beautiful.

Stay in a Forest Houses Resort Studio House

In the 1940’s, the Studio House was originally built as Mom and Dad’s working studio for sculpting and art. Dad converted it to a rental in 1950. I remember riding the bus home from school and seeing him building the house. There was an antique, disabled French World War 2 turret sitting on the patio during that year, and I was too small to work the mechanism. I would yammer and yammer until Dad would finally come out and set it for me to have one satisfying “click”.

  • Size: 2-story 
  • Bedrooms: 3 bedrooms (King downstairs; King and 2 Twins upstairs)
