“At an elevation of 7,000 feet, in the midst of the world’s largest ponderosa pine forest, Flagstaff is a four-season hub of activity where an eclectic mix of small-town charm and endless outdoor adventure beckons” (Flagstaff, Arizona CVB)

A town that offers authentic experiences for everyone is a place we like to call, Flagstaff. Unique shopping, lodging, dining, and some of the best art and entertainment events in the region. This summer take a trip up north and enjoy what nature has to offer. Whether you enjoy hiking, biking, rock climbing, or even riding a Segway, Flagstaff has almost everything to satisfy your outdoor needs.

   The Urban Trail System is close to downtown and offers 56 miles of trails that are incredibly diverse in the range of experience, some trails are located along busy streets, while others transverse beautiful man-made places. It’s perfect for hiking, biking, or even for an evening stroll.

While you are here, plan to use Flagstaff as your home base to explore some of the most spectacular scenery in the world. The city is only 80 miles from the Grand Canyon and close to seven national parks and monuments.

Just listed this spectacular log home just in time for your summer retreat. As the heat rises in the Phoenix valley what better way to enjoy summer than to get away to the unique community of Forest Highlands.

Arrive at the front door under the porte-cochere and step into this meticulously crafted Forest Highlands masterpiece. This home is situated on a cul de sac in one of the more private sections of the community. As you walk in you will see the use of massive logs, native stone, and exquisite finishes in the great room area. There are four bedrooms with three and one-half bathrooms throughout this 4,063 square foot home. The kitchen includes stainless steel appliances, with an island in the center. In the master suite, there is a large bathtub, walk-in shower, separate water closet and his and her sinks.

Outside features a large patio deck with a wide area for seating with space to even add a jacuzzi, play area for children, or a bar area with a bbq. This log home truly is remarkable and offers endless possibilities. Make this place your new summer home.



This year the third annual Home Expo took place at the Forest Highlands Sales Center and was a success! We included some of Forest Highlands most trusted vendors and enjoyed their company over sips and snacks.

SUMMER IS HERE! Re-imagine your outdoor space. A new take on the classic Adirondack…

The classic Adirondack has been a staple for comfortable seating on patios, lawns & decks since its humble beginnings in the early 1900’s. The original Adirondack chair was built in 1903 by Thomas Lee for his 22 family members who visited his cottage in West Port, New York, in the Appalachian Mountains. His requirements were that the chair needed to be made from local wood from the Appalachian Mountains, be comfortable & durable, with wide armrests to set a glass, and have a deep sloping seat to be comfortable on the steep terrain. His design was “loaned” to his friend Harry Bunnell who began producing the chairs to sell in the local store. Unbeknownst to Lee, Bunnell patented the chair as his own design calling it the “Westport Plank Chair” and that design, as seen in the drawing on the right, continued for 20 years. The next generation of the Adirondack was by Irving Wolpin who made slight adaptations to the original design before receiving a patent of his own in 1935. The rounded backs that we still see today can be attributed to his more modern version of the original chair.


Over the years, artists, carpenters, and weekend craftsmen have all created their own interpretations of this classic design and over time, they became officially known as “Adirondack” chairs. So what’s new & what’s next for the Adirondack is the version pictured below…

What I love about this take on the classic by Sutherland Furniture, are the sleek modern lines, the wide double slat back & fantastic colors in either powder coated metal or wood finishes that can go with any type of décor from contemporary to transitional. They still retain the deep-seated comfort of the original making them the perfect addition to your Forest Highland’s environment.

FLAGSTAFF, AZ, April 26, 2018 – Forest Highlands Golf Club is pleased to announce the appointment of Eddie Matney as the club’s Executive Chef. One of the Valley’s most beloved culinary personalities, Chef Eddie is sure to please the members of Forest Highlands with his dynamic energy and renowned culinary style.

Bill Griffon, General Manager for Forest Highlands Golf Club shared the news, “Over the past six months, we have been working to find an Executive Chef that fits the culture of Forest Highlands, with the right leadership and skill set to enhance the culinary experience we offer our members. After reviewing resumes and meeting candidates, the team went back to Chef Eddie Matney and asked him to return, due to the stellar experience the members and staff had with him last summer. We are thrilled that he will bring his creativity, dynamic flavors, and larger than life personality to Forest Highlands!”

“Every part of the Forest Highlands experience is focused on creating memories. Throughout all four seasons, families have access to incredible programs designed to foster a connection to family, community, and nature. Great food and unique dining experiences are an inherent part of that and I am looking forward to sharing my food with new friends at Forest Highlands,” said Matney.
Chef Eddie Matney has built a loyal following thanks to his culinary talents and his devotion to the community. Well known for his philanthropic efforts, Matney was able to use his celebrity chef status to support numerous causes over the years. When he sold Eddie’s House after nearly 30 years in the restaurant scene in Phoenix, Chef Eddie joined Forest Highlands for the summer where members raved about his style and food.

Forest Highlands recently completed a $6.75 million renovation to both The Canyon and The Meadow Clubhouses. These upgrades included expanded and enhanced dining rooms where members and their guests will enjoy the culinary delights of Chef Eddie. The 1,100-acre community in Flagstaff continues to set the bar for gated communities in the Southwest. The community includes award-winning golf courses, tennis, an active, engaging club life, and access to the national forest.
