“I felt as though I had been welcomed into their home, NOT just some tourist!”

Navajo Paintbrush is conveniently located between the renowned Canyon De Chelly and the legendary Monument Valley in the small community of Rough Rock (Tséchʼízhí), Arizona. Tséchʼízhí lies beneath the rugged and fabled Black Mesa known to the Navajos as Dziłíjiin (Black Mountain). Dziłíjiin has been the center of many Navajo folklore and still hides ancient secrets.
Navajo Paintbrush is named after the brilliant-red desert flower (Castilleja) that blooms after the first rains in April and grows abundantly throughout our property. Furthermore, our residence has superb views of Dziłíjiin and offers you and your company a unique Navajo experience that few tourist are allowed.
