Overview

Pinetop Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 6 Baths, (Sleeps 14)

This beautifully decorated 4,000+ square foot custom cabin is perfect for your family vacation. Located in a gated community, it comes completely furnished and is stocked with all the amenities you will need.

Relax on the large back deck overlooking the lake, nap in the hammock, play croquet on the manicured lawn, fish off the private dock or play tennis on the courts at the end of the block. Two kayaks and a canoe with electric motor and paddles are available during summer months. This spacious cabin is only minutes from all activities including hiking, fishing, boating, horseback riding, antiquing, casino, dining and much more. Sunrise Ski Resort is approximately 45 minutes away. There are plenty of family games and kid toys to keep your family busy, including a pool/game table in the bunk room and sleds or bikes for your use in the garage.

The cabin can comfortably sleep 14 in beds: one king in the master (2 people), one queen in bedroom #2 (2 people), one queen in bedroom #3 (2 people), one queen in bedroom #4 (2 people), and 3 twin/twin bunks (6 people/kids) in the bunk room/playroom. Each bedroom has its own private bathroom and cable tv. The bunk room has a 1/2 bath.

The family room has cable TV, a DVD player, a VCR and surround sound. There is a DVD library downstairs and a VHS kid's library upstairs. For unlimited local calls, there is a telephone and fax machine. Long distance calls can only be made with your personal calling card. Free computer usage with cable modem and internet w/wireless capability!

Air conditioning is available during summer if needed, though it's not likely that you will. Summer highs 75 to 88 degrees with night-time lows in 40s and 50s. Whole house fans cool the cabin down in a matter of minutes as the temperatures drop at the end of the day.

In addition to centralized heating, two wood-burning fireplaces in the main living areas and a gas fireplace in the master bedroom provide warmth and enjoyment during the cold winter months. Imagine relaxing in front of a roaring fire after a day on the slopes.

This is our private family cabin. We rent our home with the expectation that it will be cared for as if you were a guest.

About Amy Ahler Bhola

Our family cabin is host to three generations: grandparents, five grown children plus spouses and eight grandchildren

Amy Ahler Bhola purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Amy Ahler Bhola chose Pinetop

We have vacationed in Pinetop since the 70's, when we owned a small A-frame in the pines. As the family grew to 19 people and 7 dogs, we needed a larger cabin in which to gather. We love the laid-back and friendly attitude of the White Mountains.

What makes this cabin unique

Our cabin allows us a place we can all gather and relax, yet not be on top of each other. Our favorite activities are fishing and kayaking on the lake during the summer. The kids love to play tennis and the courts are two doors down. In evenings, we play Scrabble, and Rummikube in the loft or watch family movies with popcorn and surround sound. Sledding and skiing are favorite winter activities but we also love building snow forts in the front yard. The dads like to cook - fortunately the kitchen is well-stocked and large enough to accommodate all of them. Although the cabin is convenient to all that Pinetop has to offer, it really is just a great place to hang out with family and friends!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I went to the Ahler Cabin last year and we had the best family vacation yet! Their home was welcoming and beautifully maintained. The property was spacious and slept eight adults and three children comfortably. The kids loved the lake and the swing, not to mention story time in front of the fireplace. We enjoyed ourselves a great deal and cannot wait until we return again this year. Our family will treasure the memories of our time spent at your cabin.

Spring Break Family Reunion Success!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing lakefront property surrounded by beautiful views and big skies. Gorgeous. We were extremely comfortable and had PLENTY of space with our group of 6 adults and 7 children (ages 2-12). We stayed here during spring break and the weather was a bit windy and chilly- as we expected it could be, but on the bright side- we had the lake all to ourselves!!

We covered everything on our itinerary-

-At the property there was a plethora of outdoor activities such as fishing (we needed to buy licenses for those who wanted to partake), kayaking, pedal boating, bicycling, and horseshoes. In addition to ping pong and a pool table inside this amazing cabin, we found plenty of board games, darts in the garage, books, movies, and more! A short drive away we found horseback riding and hiking. Grumpy Jake's, a BBQ place located nearby, was absolutely delicious, as was the Jalapeño Cafe if you feel like eating out.

Wish we could have stayed another week!

Big Family Trip

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time! The cabin has so much room and so much to do. We rented it for a week with our kids and grandkids. We never ran out of things to do. The setting is just perfect and everyone slept very comfortable. We plan on coming back a couple times a year.

Birthday weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house was PERFECT. I rented it for my husbands 40th birthday and invited 3 other families to stay. Everyone had their own room and bathroom. The kids had their own bunk room and played a lot of ping pong! The house is beautiful, the beds are comfortable and the view is fantastic! We had a great time... I would definitely rent this place again!

Awesome for Adults and Kids!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at the cabin with friends and family, and it's certain not to be our last! We had 4 couples and 4 kids, and there was plenty of space for all of us to have a great, relaxing time. The beautiful kitchen allowed for us to make fabulous dinners for 12, and the open space was perfect for night time games together. During the day, the guys went skiing while the ladies stayed back at the cabin and enjoyed the beautiful lake and surrounding area. We plan to try to come back in summer also and enjoy time on the water!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was by far our best family vacation ever. The cabin has everything you need and MORE! My kids 22, 19, 9 and 6 all had a great time. There are so many activities for all ages (our age range was 6-68 years old). You can relax and read a book or play tennis, basketball or spend time on the lake. Our daily walks with breathtaking views was enjoyed by all. My family is already asking when we can go back. This cabin is spectacular, it is really hard to imagine how they could improve because everything was perfect!!! Thanks to the Ahler family for sharing there home with us.
