About Robin Riker

Born and raised in Colorado I learned to water and snow ski, fish, hunt and camp out at an early age. When my career brought me to Arizona I continued those activities in the beautiful White Mountains.

Robin Riker purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Robin Riker chose Lakeside

My parents came to live with me from Colorado in the Phoenix area in 2000. During the summer they would park their motor home in the White Mountains to get out of the heat. The limited space in the motor home made it cramped during summer visits and was not an option for winter visits. So began the search for a real log cabin!

What makes this cabin unique

Having the security of a hospital close by for my aging parents and a regional airport for easy access were important factors in choosing the Pinetop/Lakeside area. Convenient access to skiing, fishing and hunting enabled me to pursue my interests. The bonus was getting all the extras; casino, shopping, movie and live theater, night life, restaurants and special events year round.

My parents enjoyed the cabin as their summer home and parked their 34 foot motor home for guests next to the open paved patio. After 11 years my parents moved back to Colorado to live with one of my sisters and Little Bear Log Cabin became a vacation rental in late August 2011 with the first guest booking for Labor Day Weekend. Sharing Little Bear Log Cabin with others restores it purpose now that my parents have moved away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our whole family totally enjoyed our stay at your cabin. We found it clean and equipped for all our needs. Plus, beautifully decorated! I can't tell you how much we enjoyed ourselves, and undoubtedly your cabin was beneficial in making our Christmas one to remember!!

Thank you and many blessings,
Dec 2011

Just what we needed

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I have been in the fast lane for awhile and looking for a place to mostly be alone,read,hike and enjoy a fireplace. The cabin was everything we hoped for. Cozy,well equipped, a VERY comfortable bed, clean, and our small dog loved it as well. Having our evening wine by the fireplace was so theraputic. We would love to come back in the summer months to enjoy the lakes for boating and fishing.

Cozy Cabin

  • 5 of 5
This was my first time to use VRBO. A wonderful experience. Very comfy and cozy. Very clean. Has everything you need, including a large yard, for our miniature schnauzer. We can't wait to visit again, during the summer months. Robin is an excellent owner! Thank you, we hated to leave.

What else could I ask for? GET and Teddy and Tucker

  • 5 of 5
This was my first experience with VBRO rentals and I was lucky enough to find the Little Bear Cabin on the top of my list! I spent three months at the cabin and truly enjoyed every day of it. The outdoor area was exactly what I had hoped for my two Golden Retrievers...they had plenty of space to play and many squirrels to torment. Though most of the time is was the squirrels teasing them from just above their heads.
Inside I found the cabin to be just as expected. Cozy and fully stocked with everything one might need in the kitchen and throughout. Located perfectly for walking the dogs in the morning along the Rim Road Trail and then in the afternoon around the lake. After three months I was comfortable with Pinetop, the neighborhood itself (where of course, by now we knew the names of all the dogs) and the local activities. I did have some out of town guests and they were amazed at the community and the trail systems as well. We occasionally had some mechanical malfunctions but Robin was right on top of things and all the issues were resolved quickly and professionally. I would have gladly returned to the cabin again in 2015 but unfortunately the dates were already booked!!

Real Basic Cabin

  • 3 of 5
We stayed at Little Bear cabin for a month with our two dogs. PROS: The setting is quiet in spite of being residential and backing to a mobile home park. 2. The cabin was tastefully decorated with quality décor. 3. The yard is securely fenced. Our dogs loved it. 4. The cabin has an excellent hot water source for showering/dishes, etc. 5. The beds are comfortable. 6. The cabin is conveniently located near stores & some walking trails. 7. The owner has developed a very informative book on the area. 8.The porch was very relaxing. 9. The owner was easy to reach with questions or problems. CONS: 1.The kitchen is basic & tiny with limited counter space. It made food preparation difficult, so we would not recommend this cabin for longer rentals. 2. The dish washer is a small portable that needs to be rolled to the faucet for hook up so is not convenient. 3. There is a beautiful fire place but to use it one has to move furniture out of the way, thus, obstructing a view of the TV. 4. The cabin lighting is very poor so if one has an artistic hobby it is next to impossible to see detail. 5. The table seating (wooden benches) is uncomfortable and the space for the table cramped. 6. We found the beds clean upon arrival, but the rest of the cabin had wads of pet hair under chairs, beds, behind doors. The coffee pot still had grounds in it. (We took dated photos upon arrival to verify. We informed the owner & hopefully this will be resolved for future guests.) 7. The cabin has a fire safety issue in that there is only one egress to the outside. 8. There is a vacant, wooded lot to one side of the cabin posted KEEP OUT. It provides a pleasant view but the view is partially obstructed by the house across the road & their RV. 9. There was a leak in one of the two showers & though we told the owner that we did not plan to use that one she was adamant about having it repaired while we were there. She offered to have someone come into the house while we were away but we didn’t feel comfortable leaving our valuables (Computer, printer, tablets) with someone we did not know. (Something we don’t allow even in our own home) We reluctantly agreed and had to change our plans & give up 4 days for repairs to be done... something one tries to get away from on vacation. This was something that could have & should have been completed after we left. Overall this cabin did not suit our needs as far as space, lighting, cleanliness and customer consideration.

Terrific, relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5
The minute I drove into the driveway I knew this was the cabin experience I was looking for. The outside property was inviting, but the inside was so charming and homey...I can see myself living there. The inside was cozy and was complete with all the comforts of home. My dog loved the yard and enjoyed watching squirrels in the trees. I liked the fenced yard. The neighborhood was so very quiet. It was so relaxing sitting on the front porch listening to the wind in the pines...I'm ready to plan another vacation at this cabin.

Wonderful getaway from the Valley

  • 5 of 5
My husband, pups, and I spent the week here at the Little Bear Cabin. I have described this getaway to our friends in the Valley as "all the conveniences of home with the rustic, peaceful feel of the pine trees and the mountains. The fenced yard was the major draw for us initially, but having been here a week, the whole experience has been awesome. We and the pups highly recommend!
