Our family plans a family vacation once a year where we book a VRBO to get away from it all and catch up with each other. As our children are now adults, it's difficult to get everyone in one place, so we have to set our plans up at least 6 months out. Another challenge is the fact that our family loves those four legged companions and between the 6 of us, we have five of them...so finding a VRBO that's willing to take pets adds to the challenge. We were very lucky to have found this wonderful log home that would do so, and also fullfill our desire to be in the woods, while allowing us to attend the 4th of July festivies in Show Low. Additionally, we have a family of trailrunners, so the ability to step across a small fence into National Forest each morning for a run was pure heaven for us and our four legged buddies! We threw horseshoes and played disc golf during the day, and at night sat on the porch to watch the first monoons roll into the White Mountains. These same monsoons lulled us to sleep each night with a thunderstorm performance. Prior to our vacations, we plan our menus as a family and it can be challenging to find everything needed to cook with in a rental. Not so in this one.... the kitchen was very well stocked and we had everything we needed. I can honestly say this was one of our best family vacations. It was harder than usual to say goodbye after this one.....we hope to make it back.
