About Paul and Julie
Paul is a native Arizonan; Julie moved to Arizona in 1987 from MN. Heber/Overgaard is a great "escape" from the Valley of the Sun desert climate and a little "reminder of home" for Julie. Paul is an avid hiker and has hiked the Grand Canyon rim-to-rim 21 years in a row! We love to ski, and the cabin offers a great place to escape to the snow for a weekend or over the Holidays in the Winter and a cooler weather escape during the Summer. Our favorite thing is seeing the wild horses in the forest, enjoying wildlife and nature, coffee or a glass of wine on the porch, listening to the wind rustling through the trees, taking a walk, we could go on and on. We'd love for you to come stay and let us know what you enjoyed most about your stay at WILD HORSES Luxury Getaway!
Paul and Julie purchased this Cabin in 2016
Why Paul and Julie chose Heber-Overgaard
We had previously owned a cabin in the area and, after selling it, realized we missed escaping to the High Country. We recently purchased WILD HORSES in Bison Ranch to enjoy during our free time ... and to share with you!
What makes this Cabin unique
LOCATION - LOCATION - LOCATION! We love Bison Ranch and, if you haven't experienced its lifestyle, we know that you will fall in love with it too! The best part? We park the car and walk wherever we want to go! Tennis, horseback riding, basketball, sand volleyball, fishing pond, playground, hiking, biking, shops, restaurant, saloon, ice cream store ... it's all just a block or two away! How awesome is that?
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Great cabin and great location.
One of the best rentals we've stayed in. Will definitely be back
It is located in a nice community with everything you need and want right there. Found the cabin with no problem. The locking system is unlike anything we've seen before - no hidden keys to try to find. It was very clean and had everything we could think of needing. The bed was amazing and extremely comfortable. Usually the beds are hard and uncomfortable. We enjoyed a long weekend relaxing on the deck and BBQing. Everything is be and in perfect condition. A real treat. We loved our stay and would certainly recommend this cabin especially if you are picky about where you stay. Can't wait to go back!
Thank you for your glowing review, and for taking time to write it. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay at Wild Horses! We look forward to seeing you again. Thanks again!
Girls Weekend Getaway
Every year, my girlfriends and I meet up somewhere none of us have been to, and we catch up, as we're from different states. This cabin was the perfect getaway for all of us! The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to make a gourmet meal. We really enjoyed sitting on the deck and watching the snow fall with our hot cocoa. The great room is so cozy and relaxing, turn on the digital cable to your favorite music channel, sit and chat with a glass of wine, or put a puzzle together. The bedrooms are in the back of the cabin, so if you want a little alone time... the floor plan is great! You really feel like your at home with all the amenities. The beds were extremely comfortable and the linens were great! The washer and dryer was a great bonus! Bison Ranch is just a short walk away, so if you want to get out, the walk is gorgeous! Booking is easy, and the owners very responsive if you have questions or concerns. We will most definitely keep this cabin in mind for our next trip!
Thanks for your awesome review Liz. We really appreciate it. We're so glad you and your friends had a great time at Wild Horses. That's what it's all about ... good friends, good times ... great memories! Thanks for choosing to stay at Wild Horses for your girls weekend. We hope to see you all again soon!

Picturesque Romantic Cabin
This 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, romantic cabin in Heber was the perfect winter retreat for us! The luxury amenities were top-notch and we really enjoyed the fireplace and watching the snow fall. Our stay was better than any 5 star hotel. This could not have been more perfect for the best, romantic weekend! Please book your stay today, its worth it!
Best Place We’ve Stayed At!
This was incredible and we will definitely be back. When the owners say that they have everything there, they're not kidding. The kitchen is fully packed with everything you need and then some!!!! The place is beautifully laid out, clean, and tastefully decorated. The beds and bedding were so comfy and cozy! The smart tech that was installed is high-end and easy to use! When you get there, you can park your car right in the driveway... no trucking luggage through the snow during the winter and it's right by the front deck entrance!! The views and landscaping are amazing! We can't wait to go back! Thank you!!!!!
Thanks for the great review Stefan. We enjoyed having you and are so glad you had a great time at Wild Horses. We loved adding the tech-y aspect to our home - glad you liked it too. We can't wait to have you back! See you soon
