So much fun!

  • 5 of 5
I went up at the end of July for a weekend retreat with a few friends and had a FABULOUS time. We are actually planning another weekend this January.

Honestly, we were a bit wary from reading the most recent review, but our stay completely changed our minds! The cabin was spotless and had no pest problems that I was aware of. Which is surprising since it's in the woods! I was expecting some sort of furry guest..

Kitchen was fully stocked - pots, pans, dishes, silverware - the whole shebang. The bathrooms had plenty of towels and lots of bedding. It was nice not having to bring extra everything which I have had to do with other rentals.

The only thing that I noticed is that the driveway to the cabin is very steep. I was able to get up and down just fine in my small car, however when we decide to come back up, I'll probably bring my truck.

There are also a ton of trails nearby and even more within a 5 minute drive. However, our favorite was sitting out on that deck and checking out all the stars. I have never seen so many in my life!

Management was great, very friendly and accommodating. - Overall, I would definitely recommend this place for a fun weekend getaway.

don't do it!

don't do it!

upon arrival, upstairs toilet had to be plunged. Shower water pressure unacceptable ( almost a drip at full throttle), ants everywhere on first floor, floors had not been swept, mousetraps everywhere, kitchen stove and oven were filthy, kitchen utensils were of VERY poor quality for cost of rental. It was very difficult to reach the property manager with these issues. She responded > 24 hours after multiple attempts to contact her. Our party of three ended up leaving a day early, as the accommodations and lack of amenities were not worth the excessive cost. Most important to know: the property is NOT ACCESSIBLE by vehicle and the walk to the cabin was over uneven, rough terrain. Anyone with the slightest of health problems would not be able to reach the cabin ( i.e. any respiratory, back, or orthopedic problems. An elderly person would not be able to reach the cabin). In addition, NO TV, no washer, no grill. The listing did not accurately reflect the actual property

Owner's Response: We sincerely apologize that your stay was unsatisfactory.
Our cleaning crew had not informed us of missing the date to clean our cabin. We have since replaced them for a more reliable company.
When we met the tenant to discuss the situation, most of these issues were not mentioned. We reimbursed the tenant for a full nights stay, as an apology for the state of the cabin. We discussed the ants and the cleaning company, and had a pleasant parting. I wish these other things had been addressed in person, however we still do appreciate your feedback so we can correct our mistakes and make sure future tenants have a pleasant stay.

We have since amended the following:

- No more ants!

- The driveway was excavated and redone to make sure it is more easily accessible.

- Water pressure works!

- The TV's and DVD player are in working order, however we have cancelled cable due to lack of use.

- Washer and dryer work!

- Hired a more reliable cleaning company to maintain the cabin.

Again we appreciate the feedback, and apologize for the inconveniences.

We look forward to making sure future renters have a pleasant stay in our home.

Lovely cabin

  • 5 of 5
I stayed over the weekend mid march and had a wonderful time at the cabin with my family.

Pros:
Plenty of dishware, towels, toiletries, and firewood.
Close to many trails and within walking distance to Summerhaven (we drove, but it IS that close which is nice)
The woodburning stove was GREAT! - There is no central heat in the cabin which had me slightly worried, but as soon as we started a fire it heated the whole house wonderfully.
Plenty of places to sleep - I feel like you could sleep 15 people!
They are pet friendly! I was ecstatic when I found out we could bring our dogs.

Cons:
Nothing particularly wrong with the cabin, but I feel like it could be more aesthetically pleasing in the interior. I appreciate how simple it is, but it could definitely use a little sprucing up and possibly replacing some of the furniture. ..Also, I wish there was a grill up there!


Other than that I had a very pleasant time and would like to stay there again. The management was very pleasant and prompt with sending back our security deposit back. :)

Gorgeous cabin!!

  • 5 of 5
I had a WONDERFUL time at this cabin! I stayed up there with a few friends overnight and it was fantastic. Tons of room, all household goods provided (towels, cookware, even a washer and dryer downstairs!) There are tons of places to go hiking nearby that we definitely took advantage of! And it was AWESOME to come back at night and sit by the wood burning stove, turn off the lights and gaze at the sky through enormous windows in the living room.

I was a little hesitant from the past reviews if it was going to be a nice stay or not (talk of mice, and poor management) But when we got there everything was fine. I even spoke to the neighbor one day and he mentioned to me that he, as a permanent resident, gets mice every now and then. Which I realized "Hey, it makes sense, its in the middle of the woods!" And the manager Jen was great. Very accommodating and was very helpful, especially when we had trouble locating the cabin. (Directions are not my strong point)

Overall, I HIGHLY recommend this cabin for a sweet getaway! I am planning another visit in the winter with family to play in the snow!

Survival Camp on Mount Lemmon

  • 2 of 5
There was a storm during our weekend up at this property. The storm didn't bother us, we were happy to see snow. The power went out and remained out for 13 hours! The house does not have a generator (for the price it should) no candles - no light, no heat. We had to go out and collect branches just to stay warm. The weekend became more of a survival mission. This would all be borderline acceptable at half the price The owner never got back to us when we requested a partial refund, I guess they had our money already and that's all that mattered. Nice cabin, but it's an empty shell.
