About Constance Taylor

I have lived in Flagstaff for 24 years--from 1980 to 2002, then left and returned again in 2013. I am excited to share this place in the BEST part of Flagstaff with you, my guests!

I am a professional woman who is passionate about travel, food, and culture and sharing these experiences with others. I'm an avid cook and a frequent traveler within the western U.S. and Europe (especially Italy), but have visited many other places on the globe over the years. I don't travel as a tourist, but like to live in places like a local while I am there. I am excited to share this experience with others when they stay in my lovely downtown Flagstaff property.

Constance Taylor purchased this cottage in 1996

Why Constance Taylor chose Flagstaff

This cottage was built as a mother-in-law cottage sometime in the 50s or 60s behind the original historic 1923 home. I have lovingly updated the cottage, keeping it cozy and cute, but modernizing it along the way. The beds are comfy, the kitchen is well equipped, and the cottage is clean as a whistle.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is behind the original 1923 home, and was one of the few on the street when it was built. The front home and the cottage share a patio and gas BBQ. The yard is open to the neighborhood, which gives guests a great feeling of being a part of this beautiful historic area.

Walk to downtown Flagstaff!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 4 and this was our first visit to Flagstaff. We are so pleased we took a friend's advice and chose this rental property which is walking distance to downtown Flagstaff. It is compact but it had everything we needed.

Nicely appointed, clean and convenient to downtown Flagstaff

  • 5 of 5

We had a nice stay. The owner had it very clean. The kitchen was well equipped and clean. The bedrooms were cozy but met our needs. The location was great for heading out for all our adventures. Flagstaff has 40+ trains a day. We only heard two when we had the front door open. That was a real plus. We would come back again.

Clean and close to great food and hiking!

  • 5 of 5

Location is great with only 10 minute walk to downtown restaurants and 3 minutes to an awesome trailhead that takes you up to the Lowell Observatory. Check in was easy with a key box on the door. The two bedroom apartment was clean and well layed out. It is a seperate unit from the main house so lots of privacy.

Clean, comfortable, well-appointed

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is very clean and comfortable. The kitchen and bathroom are well-equipped with everything you need. The host was easy to reach if needed and left detailed information about the town and the cottage. Also, the location was excellent, we walked into historic Flagstaff on several occasions, but also enjoyed the quiet of the neighborhood. I would definitely stay here again.

A Home Away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at Birch Cottage. Connie thought of everything guests could need to make their stay comfortable, even a washer and dryer. Although we spent much of our time visiting family and friends enjoying all that Flagstaff has to offer, we started each day enjoying coffee on the patio surrounded by Connie's beautiful gardens of herbs and flowers. In the evenings, we returned to a cozy living room, a fully equipped kitchen and comfortable beds. Thank you, Connie, for your gracious hospitality.

The Cottage on Birch is in Flagstaff's Historic Townsite residential neighborhood, 8 blocks from the center of Historic Downtown, and two blocks from Thorpe Park and an extensive urban trail system (FUTS). In the spring, summer, and fall there are lots of festivals, music events, and arts fairs. In the the winter you can enjoy skiing, snowboarding, and winter sports. Year-round, there are great restaurants, bars, music, and arts events just minutes away by foot, bicycle, or car.

The cottage is convenient to Lowell Observatory, the Museum of Northern Arizona, Coconino Center for the Arts, Northern Arizona University, The Arboretum and Flagstaff, Walnut Canyon National Monument.

Flagstaff is 140 miles north of Phoenix, 79 miles southeast of the Grand Canyon South Rim, and 30 miles from Sedona via Oak Creek Canyon. It is an excellent location to base outdoor trips in Northern Arizona, and a leaping off point for Four Corners and the National Parks of Utah and Colorado.

But, the best thing about the cottage is its location in the center of the Historic Townsite, a quiet, residential neighborhood. When the weather is warm (usually from Mid-May through September--sometimes earlier or later) you can enjoy the beautiful yard, comfortable seating, 6-person outdoor dining table, BBQ, and lounge chairs on the lawn under the crab apple tree. People walk dogs, bicycle, and even stop to say hi if you're interested! It's a two block walk to Thorpe Park which is a grassy playground and tennis courts, and from there you can walk, run, or bike along miles of trails in the Flagstaff Urban Trails System (FUTS).

Whatever your interests--from relaxing to enjoying downtown nightlife to hiking and outdoor sports, the Cottage on Birch is the perfect place to stay in Flagstaff.
