Nestled within the San Francisco peaks near Flagstaff, Arizona, the 1870s homestead at Hart Prairie was gifted to The Nature Conservancy following the discovery of the world’s largest known community of globally rare Bebb willows. Here, your cozy and rustic cabin serves as home base for exploring the preserve’s mosaic of old-growth aspens, ponderosa pines and open meadows. Throughout the 245-acre property, you can look for herds of elk and deer, porcupines, prairie dogs, and the impressive array of birds and butterflies that inhabit this alpine pocket of the Southwest. We will also venture off-site to the Wild and Scenic Verde River and the unforgettable Grand Canyon National Park.


  • Unplug and relax in rustic and cozy lodging on Hart Prairie Preserve.
  • Hike the South Kaibab Trail and marvel at the Grand Canyon’s South Rim.
  • Travel a scenic loop through high ponderosa pine forests to Sunset Crater Volcano National Park.
  • Kayak on the Verde River, the lifeblood of the region.
