Overview

About the property

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 6 Baths, (Sleeps 14)

This beautifully decorated 4,000+ square foot custom cabin is perfect for your family vacation. Located in a gated community, it comes completely furnished and is stocked with all the amenities you will need.

Relax on the large back deck overlooking the lake, nap in the hammock, play croquet on the manicured lawn, fish off the private dock or play tennis on the courts at the end of the block. Two kayaks and a canoe with electric motor and paddles are available during summer months. This spacious cabin is only minutes from all activities including hiking, fishing, boating, horseback riding, antiquing, casino, dining and much more. Sunrise Ski Resort is approximately 45 minutes away. There are plenty of family games and kid toys to keep your family busy, including a pool/game table in the bunk room and sleds or bikes for your use in the garage.

The cabin can comfortably sleep 14 in beds: one king in the master (2 people), one queen in bedroom #2 (2 people), one queen in bedroom #3 (2 people), one queen in bedroom #4 (2 people), and 3 twin/twin bunks (6 people/kids) in the bunk room/playroom. Each bedroom has its own private bathroom and cable tv. The bunk room has a 1/2 bath.

The family room has cable TV, a DVD player, a VCR and surround sound. There is a DVD library downstairs and a VHS kid's library upstairs. For unlimited local calls, there is a telephone and fax machine. Long distance calls can only be made with your personal calling card. Free computer usage with cable modem and internet w/wireless capability!

Air conditioning is available during summer if needed, though it's not likely that you will. Summer highs 75 to 88 degrees with night-time lows in 40s and 50s. Whole house fans cool the cabin down in a matter of minutes as the temperatures drop at the end of the day.

In addition to centralized heating, two wood-burning fireplaces in the main living areas and a gas fireplace in the master bedroom provide warmth and enjoyment during the cold winter months. Imagine relaxing in front of a roaring fire after a day on the slopes.

This is our private family cabin. We rent our home with the expectation that it will be cared for as if you were a guest.

About Amy Ahler Bhola

Our family cabin is host to three generations: grandparents, five grown children plus spouses and eight grandchildren

Amy Ahler Bhola purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Amy Ahler Bhola chose Pinetop-Lakeside

We have vacationed in Pinetop since the 70's, when we owned a small A-frame in the pines. As the family grew to 19 people and 7 dogs, we needed a larger cabin in which to gather. We love the laid-back and friendly attitude of the White Mountains.

What makes this cabin unique

Our cabin allows us a place we can all gather and relax, yet not be on top of each other. Our favorite activities are fishing and kayaking on the lake during the summer. The kids love to play tennis and the courts are two doors down. In evenings, we play Scrabble, and Rummikube in the loft or watch family movies with popcorn and surround sound. Sledding and skiing are favorite winter activities but we also love building snow forts in the front yard. The dads like to cook - fortunately the kitchen is well-stocked and large enough to accommodate all of them. Although the cabin is convenient to all that Pinetop has to offer, it really is just a great place to hang out with family and friends!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I went to the Ahler Cabin last year and we had the best family vacation yet! Their home was welcoming and beautifully maintained. The property was spacious and slept eight adults and three children comfortably. The kids loved the lake and the swing, not to mention story time in front of the fireplace. We enjoyed ourselves a great deal and cannot wait until we return again this year. Our family will treasure the memories of our time spent at your cabin.

Awsome simple Awsome

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed every moment of our stay. The cabin is actually more beautiful than the pictures you see online. Watching the Bald Eagles fishing in the lake, playing in the snow on the mountain or just enjoying the warmth and character of the cabins three fireplaces, the huge kitchen, where you know everyone ends up hanging out, proved to exceed all of my expectations. I'm definitely going back.

OUTSTANDING!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Amy and your entire family for sharing your beautiful home! The photos on VRBO and amenities are the reason we decided on your home for our 50th Anniversary Family Celebration. But, the actual home is far beyond our expectations. Our family consisting of three married children and seven grandchildren, ranging in age from 4 years old to 16 years old There were multiple things for all to enjoy, from fishing, kayaking, bking, videos, games, pool table, grilling and enjoying the back patio from very early morning to late in the evening! The bunk room was a big hit with the grand kids!

Thanks again. We will definitely use your home again.
