3. High Country Motor Lodge

Wildsam

Inspired by Flagstaff and Northern Arizona’s vast beauty—rugged mountains, deep forests and storied highways—the High Country Motor Lodge is more than a roadside motel. It is an ode to wilderness. A contemplative retreat set against a clear night sky, melding vintage style, contemporary design and the adventurous spirit of the high desert. This alpine getaway beckons both locals and visitors alike to take a deep breath and reflect on the beauty of this hotel at the foot of the San Francisco Peaks, between the Grand Canyon and Barringer Crater. Relax on the communal lawn, sip craft beer from The General Store, venture out into the woods, or unwind for real at the first Nordic Spa Experience in all of Arizona. No matter where High Country Motor Lodge sits within your greater journey, you will find safe harbor after a long day’s travel.
