Elden Trails Bed and Breakfast is a full service B&B offering the luxurious simplicity of our two room Studio Suite at the foot of Mount Elden and miles of ponderosa pine forest and high desert hiking and biking trails. We are five miles east of historic downtown Flagstaff, near public transportation and shopping, but away from the hustle bustle. Many of our foods are grown in our gardens and greenhouse. We have chickens for eggs. At Elden Trails we aspire to be an example of sustainable living and to serve local, organic nourishing, gourmet food.

We loved, loved, loved our stay at Elden Trails B&B! The room was clean, homey,and very comfertable. Marnie is an incredible chef and breakfasts were amazing. We, typically, jump up from breakfast, ready to go and do...but the environment at this B&B begged for relaxation and conversation...an hour of time just to BE. (Thank you for that, Steve and Marnie!) Suggestions for places to go and the best way to see the sights were always available...and we were never sorry we followed Steve's advice. We have been on extended travel across the US. I must say, Elden Trails B&B has been our favorite stay so far.

Marnie and Steve have created a delightful retreat! The "room" is actually a studio with separate sleeping area, which backs up to the Coconino National Forest. Breakfasts are outstanding: all-natural, organic, with eggs fresh from The Girls (Marnie and Steve's chickens). I would have loved to stay more than our two nights! In fact, I would return to the Flagstaff area just to stay at Elden Trails!

I stayed at Elden Trails in September 2013 for three nights before joining a Grand Canyon hiking tour. It was a beautiful spot, with great access to hiking trails and very close to downtown Flagstaff. The cabin is spacious, comfortable, and very quiet. Breakfast was absolutely delicious and I really enjoyed the company & conversation each morning. Thanks Steve & Marnie for being great hosts! Lisa

I stayed 4 nights when on a recent personal retreat. The food was awesome and Marnie packed a breakfast for me for the day I left at 6am. The location was exactly what I was looking for - quiet, access to gorgeous trails and hosts that were most helpful with information. Looking forward to returning there again.

We had a splendid one night stay at Elden Trails B&B. The studio suite is comfy and quiet with forest trails directly behind the suite with a variety of hiking options. Marnie and Steve are gracious hosts and helped us with dinner and entertainment options in Flagstaff. We can't say enough about how wonderful the breakfast was. We requested a vegan breakfast and it far exceeded our expectations. Plenty of variety and it was very tasty.

Steve and Marnie are exceptional hosts in an industry (B&Bs) that has attracted too many people who are merely interested in revenues. It is obvious that they have captured the spirit of hospitality that guided B&B's previously. It shows in the lodgings, the food, and their level of helpfulness.

Great examples and advocates for sustainable living. This cute studio bed and breakfast provided the quiet night that we needed, unique touches everywhere. Would have enjoyed softer sheets but over all comfortable experience. Owners were great hosts as the left a key and warmed the studio since we were late arrivals. The property backs up to a national forrest for our beloved four-legged friends to run free. The most mentionable part of our experience was the breakfast. It was healthy, wholesome and organic. We ate eggs laid that morning from the chickens right outside the studio.

I stayed here with my girlfriend and her sister last month. It couldn't have been better. Although its a few miles from town, it is right at the heart of great hiking trails. Its set back in a quiet neighborhood which was very nice. The room is very cute and clean. The food was the best part. Breakfast was hearty and healthy. The owners are very kind -darren n ashley

Steve and Marnie are very gracious hosts - in addition to being very interesting and thoughtful people. We had a great time eating breakfasts with them and chatting (though that is optional, if you prefer to eat alone). The location is nothing short of spectacular. The moment you walk into Steve and Marnie's yard, you'll know that your choice of venues was wise. The yard is lovely, replete with Koi pond, 9 chickens (fresh eggs for breakfast), and seasonal gardens. Their yard - and your suite - backs up to spectacular National Forest Service land and a 9000+ foot tall mountain, with hiking trails out your bedroom door if you are so inclined. Your bedroom windows will be in the forest, and I mean that literally. My wife and I have run a bed and breakfast, so we know a thing or two about the business, and I can tell you unequivocally that Steve and Marnie are running a top-notch operation. I hope to return again sometime. Two enthusiastic thumbs up!
