Set at the upper end of Oak Creek Canyon and built right on the banks of the creek, these rustic houses and apartments date to the 1940s. Built by a stone sculptor, they feature artistic touches that set them apart from other cabins in the canyon. About half of the houses are built right on the creek; some seem to grow straight from the rocks in the streambed. Terraces let you fully enjoy the setting. One of my favorite units is the two-bedroom Cloud House, with stone floors, peeled-log woodwork, and a loft. There are units for 2, 4, 6, and 10 people. This property is certainly not for everyone (no phones, no TVs; you have to drive through the creek to get here; weekend stays require a 2-night minimum, 4 nights in summer), but many who discover the Forest Houses come back year after year.
