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.
My wife and I stayed at this wonderful property for a long weekend. It is a lovely two-bedroom cabin with a nicely equipped kitchen and plenty of obvious care given to the rest of the property. As described, it is very private, with a back yard that looks out on National Forest land. There is a small dirt road some distance off, which attracts its share of mountain bikers and ATVs, but nothing that spoils the overall peace and quiet of the cabin.
We saw plenty of wildlife over the weekend, and the stars in the night sky are truly remarkable.
We really enjoyed our time here and I would recommend it to anyone interested in a quiet escape from the big city.
Just returned from a wonderful relaxing weekend at the "little cabin in the woods." It was a peaceful weekend for four moms who thoroughly enjoyed the cozy cabin. Everything we needed was provided for; fluffy towels, dishes, throw blankets and movies. The cabin is located in a quiet neighborhood; the only neighbors we saw were the 4 legged kind. It was wonderful to be greeted by the animals in the morning. Great location for families or women's groups. Ill definitely keep this place as an option for future trips to Pine.
We scheduled 2 nights in this home & I felt like I was in my own house, everything I needed to sleep, cook, relax & make coffee was available. We hunted all day the first day, came to the house cleaned up & had a great nights rest. We were up early the next day, hunted all day, got my son's first elk- late, made it back to the house by 1 a,m, & slept well after hauling out that elk. I would rent this house again- as opposed to sleeping in a tent or hauling up a camp trailer. The home just added to the great experience we had on our hunt.
Made a last minute decision to head up to the cool country for the weekend. Luckily there was a cancellation and the cabin was open. The owner was great to work with on such short notice, and went out of their way to get us the contract and get us set up within an hour. The cabin was clean, comfortable, and had everything we needed. Pine was a great spot as long you aren't looking for much from the town. A few mediocre restaurants, but the market was great and had everything we needed to be pretty self sufficient at the cabin. The cabin backs up to the wilderness, yet you can be at the market in minutes, so it was a great mix of being in nature and having the town close by. If you're looking for some great close by views, take Hardscrabble Mesa Rd. to the west instead of heading east into town for some incredible panoramic views within 5-10 minutes. There's also a few short, but fun off-the-map Jeep trails to the west, right out the back door if you're looking to explore.
This was our Christmas gift to our 5 small children and we had the most wonderful time! The cabin was clean, cozy, and we loved the fireplace. We stayed for three nights and are left with precious memories! It snowed the day we went up there so the kids had a great time playing in the snow! Can't beat the price! We hope to be back!
My family stayed at the cabin for my son's 3rd birthday. The cabin was very clean and perfrect for a family. My kids loved having their own beds. The extra bedroom has two twin beds and a full bed. The cabin is very easy to find and only 15 min away from Payson. One of our day trips consisted of going to the Llama farm where my kids got to play with the baby goats. We look forward to staying at the cabin again. The owner was very helpful and easy to work with. Thank you for all your help Mary!
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.
