Best Arizona Vacations – 33 Summer Getaways
June, 2011, Page 106
Prescott Log Cabin Bed & Breakfast
3155 N. Hwy 89, Prescott
Prescott gets attention for its Wild West history and Whiskey Row, where you can sling back drinks in the bars where gunslingers such as Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday slung. But just five miles away is the Granite Dells, a tranquil landscape of ochre-toned boulders rising above cerulean lakes.
Here the action is considerably easier on the liver: rent a kayak from Prescott Outdoors (
) and paddle Watson lake, hike or bike the leisurely Peavine Trail, or test your mettle (and your triceps) on a rock-climbing excursion with Rubicon Outdoors (
Nestled amid the scenery is Prescott Log Cabin B&B, a two-story lodge-style building hewn from satiny wood and accented with dormer windows that soak up the sunsets. Owner Gary Edelbrock offers an intimate retreat of just four guest rooms sporting amenities such as skylights for stargazing, fireplaces, claw-foot tubs and patchwork quilts. After a hike through the Dells (or a raucous night on Whiskey Row), a soothing soak in the Jacuzzi on the wraparound deck is a must.

Molly Butler Lodge & Molly’s Cabin Keepers
109 Main St., Greer
This historic lodge has been the heartbeat of Greer since 1910, nestled at 8,500 feet in the cool White Mountains. The seven-room hotel is undergoing the final touches of renovation right now, so here’s a tip: The owners of Molly’s also offer 55 luxuriously appointed private cabins for rent throughout the charming town and in the adjacent Valley.
From cozy, rustic log cottages that sleep two to million-dollar, over-the-top, log-style home estates that can accommodate up to 18 guests on acre lots, Molly’s hideaways are scattered in prime spots throughout Greer’s rolling hills and lush forests. You can prepare your own meals in the full kitchens, but for a taste of the town, head to the Molly Butler Lodge Restaurant to enjoy American classics – the recently refurbished eatery is right next to the hotel, and you can get a sneak peek at the luxury suites that will be unveiled this winter.
: Cabins start at $95 per night. To reach the Molly’s Cabin Keepers, call 928-735-7617.
