This little cabin in the woods is located in Pine, AZ - less than 2 hours from Central Phoenix. Nestled on the Tonto National Forest, this quaint, recently remodeled 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom provides an escape from busy life. Relax by the fireplace, enjoy the abundant wildlife, horseback riding, a hike in the woods, or visit any of the local sights. Elk migrate right behind the cabin! You will be a nice walk away from antique stores, berry picking, and the restaurants in pine, and a short drive from the casino, Christopher Creek, and Tonto Fish Hatchery. Reserve your time when the Rodeo is in nearby Payson or during one of the summer art/craft fairs that line the small town of Pine. Escape the heat of the valley or come to play in the winter snow. The kitchen is fully stocked and toys, games, and pack-n-play can be found waiting for the family seeking an easy get-away. Cabin was remodeled in 2010 with new bathroom, laundry closet with washer/dryer, new flooring and paint throughout.
We have been married 12 years and have 4 children to show for it. We are both Arizona Natives, both went to graduate school at ASU, and have made The Valley our home. We live in Tempe, AZ and in the bustle of raising our family find that we don't get to relax in our forest retreat as often as we like. We are hoping you will be able to enjoy it!
Pine is a wonderful, small, quaint community with a few restaurants, a hardware shop, some antique stores and a fudge/ice cream shop. I wanted our children to experience what life was like before 'Big Box' stores populated the world and my husband has fond childhood memories of spending time exploring around his families cabin growing. We wanted a place to escape the rest of the world - but someplace close enough that we would be there before we started hearing 'are we there yet?'!
My Favorite Things about the Place-
Because of our unique location on the forest we often pull into the drive and find a welcoming party of deer on our property.
The window above the kitchen sink is a great place to view the Elk as they follow a migratory path behind the house.
I love the both the quiet of the forest and the sound of the wind blowing through the tall pines.
In the summer we often get fantastic, albeit short, afternoon rains that leave the whole forest smelling and feeling just fantastic.
I love that it is close enough that we can make a day trip out of it or just go up for one night.
It is a situated on the edge of the Tonto National Forest and is a quiet retreat with all the comforts of home. Living room has a new sofa, TV with cable, and wood burning fireplace. The 'kids' bedroom has a set of twin-bunk beds and a full size bed as well so the entire cabin could sleep 6 comfortably. There is a pack-and-play and baby sheets stowed in the closet for your use as well. We remodeled in 2010 providing a completely new layout for the bathroom and creating a laundry closet tucked off the second bedroom which has a queen-size bed. No smoking on the property please.
