"Maxx greeted us warmly in his beautiful home, a house tastefully decorated in the 1912 style. We immediately felt at home in our Dragonfly room. Maxx was a helpful host, obtaining some useful information for us. The breakfast table was elegantly laid out and the food was excellent - a wonderful way to start the day!
We just spent three weeks sightseeing in the US, and Starlight Pines was by far the best place we stayed at. If you have to spend the night in Flagstaff, this is your address." Date of stay: September 2019
"Very comfortable beds! Loved the fire in the main room. Extremely warm and welcoming hosts. Top notch hospitality. We will absolutely come and stay again!" Stephen United States of America
"The breakfast was fantastic. The owner is very kind and friendly. He made great recommendations of places to eat and things to do (Walnut Canyon!!) The location is great. The home was beautifully decorated." Kathleen United States of America
"For anybody, not from America, this place is a must! Maxx, the new owner, has made this a bit of the America we all hope to experience, when traveling to the country, but which one only can, if one were to stay in the home of an American.
Nothing was a problem for our host. We felt spoiled rotten and the my children absolutely loved staying at his place, so much, they didn't want to leave. They were really chuffed, when we got back back to England, to receive the postcards that Maxx had prepared for them, to write to themselves, stamps and all, which he then posted for us, after we left.
Maxx got up really early one morning, to make us an amazing portable breakfast, so that we could get to the Grand Canyon, first thing, to do a hike with the Rangers. We insisted that we were happy to go without, given that were leaving before his set breakfast hours, but he generously insisted on waving us off, provisions and coffee in hand.
Our favorite experience, was sitting out on the porch, one evening, and having a supper of selections, bought from a local deli, with a bottle of wine. Maxx kindly provided us with wine glasses, crockery and utensils and even allowed us to prep the meal in his kitchen. How kind! The evening of conversation, against the background sound of night critters, was precious, quality, family-time and it was one of the most memorable moments of our vacation.
If you have the chance, go and stay with Maxx! His B&B is more than a place to stay, its a destination in its own right."

"From the warm greeting by our hosts Maxx and Lucy to the heartfelt goodbyes when we left, we have never felt more pampered or cared for by any other B&B host. The decor was gorgeous - your eyes will enjoy the turn of the century attention to detail in the room decor, the rooms were comfortable and inviting. And the breakfasts! The breakfasts exploded with tantalizing flavors from the Grand Mariner French toast to egg souffle. There is nothing Maxx can't do for breakfast! Don't pass up this gem in the cool pines of Flagstaff." Date of stay: September 2019 ____________________________
"This place is phenomenal! The new owners created the perfect ambiance in this Victorian style house. Extremely clean and nicely decorated. My favorite part was the amazing breakfast served which allowed us to connect with the other B&B guests. To sum up the experience it felt like I was in a hallmark movie. I will be going again! I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for the perfect vacation get away." ____________________________
"We happened upon Starlight Pines after cancelling a stay elsewhere. So glad we did! Maxx was a gracious host who made sure all of our needs were taken care of - great recommendations about where to go for a quick hike and the best pizza in Flagstaff.
The room was clean and lovely, the bed comfy, the breakfast was sumptuous, and the company was wonderful. Can't rave enough about this little gem. And can't wait to return to Starlight Pines. Thanks Maxx!" Date of stay: August 2019 ________________________________
"Our trip was delayed due to weather by the airline...We were so happy that Maxx allowed us to change one date of our reservation, that way were at least we weren't out money. He was also very accommodating with times for breakfast, dinner reservations and suggesting attractions! We loved Lucy the friendly doggie greeter. Food was great!"

"My wife and I planned an anniversary trip to the Grand Canyon and Sedona. We flew into Flagstaff and spent the first night at Starlight. We could not have been happier with our choice! Max and Monica were the perfect hosts. Went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. The place is immaculately clean and has such character! Max also gave us great sightseeing tips regarding the Grand Canyon.
Now let's discuss the breakfast! Huge bowl of fresh fruit and yogurt with granola, followed up with an egg souffle that was amazing. The crispy bacon as a side was the topper! Trust me, you will NOT be disappointed if you stay here for one or multiple nights. We are super happy with our choice! Thanks for the memories!!"

"My husband and I stay here whenever we have the opportunity for a stopover in Flagstaff - it has always been completely wonderful. This was our first stay since Richard and Michael left for the Northwest. We missed them, but Max and his faithful canine companion Lucy (arf!) were also delightful hosts. The breakfast was beautifully presented and delicious. A new dinner recommendation was just what we were looking for. The beauty of the setting and the house itself surprise us anew each visit. Thanks, Max, for your warm hospitality. We'll be back." Lili and John
