We come here often to get away from the heat and relax.The retreat has all you need .There are movies , all the kithen ware and the exterior patio has got to be the best place to sit.

A relaxing getaway for the whole family

  • 5 of 5

Our large extended family consisting of 8 adults and 5 children had a great time at this rental house (also rented the casita). We really enjoyed the privacy and being surrounded by nature. It was nice to get away from the bustle of city life. The house was clean, kitchen was well-stocked and updated. It was very convenient having a bathroom in each bedroom. We enjoyed playing pool, badminton, and of course roasting marshmallows and having smores near the firepit. Having the creek right in the backyard was an added bonus. Although we didn't catch anything, the kids still had fun trying to fish. It was definitely a memorable time and the kids did not want to leave. We will hopefully be back in the near future!

Something for everyone

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at several cabins in the Payson area and this one was voted the favorite by far from the whole family. There is something for everyone here. Lots of seating down by the creek for relaxing and just listening to the water. We played badminton and had a fire every night in the fire pit. Lots of trees for shade and listening to the wind blow thru. The house itself is amazing. We took 5 adults and 3 kids and everyone was very comfortable. It was especially nice to have plenty of bathrooms for everyone. A private bathroom for every bedroom is something you rarely find in a rental. We loved having all the seating out on the deck so we could eat all our meals outside enjoying the weather and listening to the creek. And the cabin was so well stocked. Plenty of pots and pans for cooking and very modern appliances made meals a breeze. Mark was great about answering our calls just to give us info on the best places to go hike and creek stomping with the little ones. We will definitely be booking this cabin again. Thanks Mark for a great, memorable weekend.

Wonderfully Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed ourselves. There were 6 of us and we were all very comfortable. We all took turns cooking meals, plenty of pots, pans etc. Bring tin foil and saran wrap. Listening to the river was awesome from the deck. It really was one of our best weekend trips up to Payson area. It is a bit of a trek for groceries so bring everything on the way up so you don't have to leave once you get there. There isn't A/C but they provided lots of fans and it was never too warm in the house. Would recommend and go back to again.

Joyful in June!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this beautiful home and were riveted to the rushing waters of the East Verde river right in the backyard. Best therapy ever! The house itself had every comfort we needed and the access from the Phoenix metro area is so incredibly convenient - fewer than 2 hours to get there...and we felt a million miles away! Hiking trails nearby include the Arizona Trail and the amazing Waterwheel waterfalls. We highly recommend this wonderful retreat. We especially love the owners. Nicest.People.Ever!!

Perfect place to relax in the trees!

  • 5 of 5

We had only a short weekend to enjoy this house but we are still talking about going back. The home inside was light and bright with plenty of space for us to spread out. The back deck was perfect for sitting with a book and a glass of wine after a day hike. The sound of the wind in the trees was so calming. The creekside area is almost too good to be true. Our kids couldn't decide what to do next between the volleyball, swing, creek, croquet or badminton. The owners have outfitted the home very well. Plenty of places to sit, a dining table that seats 6, comfortable beds and plenty of hot water and towels. I will mention, because we had never been up this way, that the property is on a dirt road that you must travel for a few miles and is about 25 minutes from payson, in case you forgot something. The road was very well maintained and passable in our mini van when we travelled it. Also, we have AT&T cell service which does NOT service that area so be sure to have those directions printed before you leave! Great owner to work with.

Family bonding time

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful, wonderful place. We had eight adults and two kids, ages 8 and 11. So many places to hang out and talk, laugh, play games, sit around the fire pit! Everything was perfect, except the pool table, does need some cue sticks that work! Ps. Still a great place😆
