Oak Creek Canyon

If you're looking for a cozy place to hang your stockings this month, Forest Houses Resort in Oak Creek Canyon features 15 rental "cabins," and they all have fireplaces.

By Kathy Montgomery

For Bob Kittredge, Forest Houses Resort is more than a collection of funky stone and wood rental houses along Oak Creek. It's his childhood home and the repository of his family's history. Walk into the office, and you'll see memorabilia he's unearthed, including his own baby bottles, glass milk containers and a miniature replica of the motorcycle his dad drove in on — one of the first built by Harley Davidson.

Oak Creek Canyon

Not only is it situated in one of the most beautiful places in the world, the food at Garland's is every bit as impressive as the surrounding landscape.

By Robert Stieve

With the possible exception of El Tovar, which has the unfair advantage of being perched on the edge of the world's seventh natural wonder, Garland's Oak Creek Lodge is arguably the most scenic place to spend a night in Arizona. Lodge, hotel, B&B, campsite … good luck finding accommodations with a better view. [more]

RedBuck Ranch

There are a lot of things to like about RedBuck Ranch in Scottsdale: the food, the atmosphere, the hospitality. Even better, it's limited to one set of guests at a time. Talk about privacy.

By Lauren Proper

After Billie "The Kid" Shepherd had her first country dance with Johnny "Wild" West, she couldn't get the bearded cowboy out of her head. He told the enthusiastic city woman about himself and also about two horses, Red and Buck — "an aging sorrel" and "a beautiful buckskin with tiger eyes," according to Shepherd's essay, "The Story of RedBuck Ranch."

By Kendall Wright

At the height of Jerome's mining boom in 1916, when the town was swarming with smelter workers, freighters, gamblers, bootleggers, saloon keepers and prostitutes, the United Verde Copper Co. built a mansion — relative to everything else in the area — as a way of luring a much-needed surgeon.

Tombstone, Tubac, Greer, the Grand Canyon … these are the places people think of when they think of weekend getaways — Chino Valley rarely cracks the top 10. One night at the Teapot Inn, though, and people might start thinking otherwise. [more]
