About Ashley Gries
Hi! I'm Ashley, the oldest child of 8 - and I run our family's vacation home. While we no longer live there, myself and my siblings take care of our family's home in Flagstaff so that others can continue to enjoy it's gorgeous views and wide open spaces.
Ashley Gries purchased this Lodge in 2003
Why Ashley Gries chose Flagstaff
Our family landed in Arizona by chance - a cross-country trip brought us through Flagstaff, and our parents fell in love with the location. Upon finding job openings at the local hospital, they decided to move our family from northern Iowa to northern Arizona, and our family has been involved in the community ever since. My siblings grew up here, attended local schools, and worked in several of our favorite local spots (Mary's Cafe and Mike & Ronda's to name a few). When a job transfer meant moving from our home, we knew that we wanted to keep the house, which is why we have loved the option of renting it out so that others may enjoy it too!
What makes this Lodge unique
Our family has loved this home for the past 16 years, and continues to love it due to the stunning views of the San Francisco Peaks, the kindness and generosity of our neighbors, and the proximity we have to so many outdoor activities. Within several miles of our home, you can visit the Cinder Cones at Sunset Crater - a location from which we found our home's name, or go hiking among early pueblo ruins at the Elden Pueblo Ruins, or take a hike on the Arizona Trail.

The home is in a small, residential community consisting of neighbors that we love. Each home is on a 2+ acre lot, so while each house has breathing-room we do ask that you keep noise to a reasonable level. No smoking is allowed inside or outside of the home. Flagstaff is an area prone to fires and as such, we ask that our guests refrain from smoking around the home as ashes from cigarettes and cigars can ignite the dry brush in the area.

Enjoyed our vacation
Nice house. Had a small issue when first arrived but Ashley was quick to resolve problem. Good space for family time.
Loved our quick stay; great location and beautiful property!
We enjoyed our visit and tour of the Grand Canyon
Awsome property and great management
Property owner was very nice and the house was fully equipped.
Great location and lots of space
This house was perfect for our family of 6 adults and 5 children. There were enough bedrooms and baths for everyone. We did not even run out of hot water with 11 people bathing every evening. The only problem we had was that the dishwasher was not working properly. I called Ashley and she said she would have it looked at. We left soon after, but I am sure she has had that repaired. I would definitely recommend this house . We were able to day trip to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, Sedona and the Petrified Forest from hear.
We had a fabulous stay at cinderlodge! Our family was so comfortable and enjoyed an authentic flagstaff experience.
