About Gary Van Derford - Owner

We fell in love with the White Mountains of Arizona and frequent Pinetop with our family and friends throughout the year.

We work in the professional services in San Diego, Calif. and this is our primary residence. Our hope is to provide a well appointed home with all the conveniences you would experience in your own home. We are very selective to who we rent our home to and hope those who rent from us will give it the care and consideration so others will be able to enjoy for many years to come.

Gary Van Derford - Owner purchased this condo in 2005

Why Gary Van Derford - Owner chose Pinetop

Pinetop offers the resort mountain living with a family friendly community. We bring our Grandchildren for horseback riding and fishing in the spring and summer along with playing in the snow at winter time. It is located in the Pinetop/Lakeside Country Club Estates and is close to many public golf courses.

What makes this condo unique

The construction of our condo home and the resort village is excellent. The layout makes it easy to gather together for family time or take a walk among the pines if you need some time alone.

Pinetop Lakeside golf course is a short walk for tee time or have a great dinner in their restaurant. Friday night fish is the best!

Short drive to HonDah casino if nightlife is your fun or go explore the Indian ruins. The history of Pinetop is amazing.

  • 5 of 5

The Condo is very spacious and has everything you will need. It is very close to shopping and restaurants. The hosts are very accommodating and helpful. They have truly made it a home away from home for guests. The rooms are also very spacious and the beds are comfortable. It is the nicest rental we have stayed in here in Pinetop.

Weed-End Stay at Four Bear Lodge

  • 5 of 5

The place was great! Four of us stayed there in January. The location was easy to find. Nice area. The property was clean, spacous and has been well maintained. We had intended on sking , the drive to SunRise was an easy 35 minutes, the snow had become packed and a little to icey for us to ski. However, we did play in the snow, visisted some of the antique stores, and had a great time relaxing, cooking, and playing games. I would like to see the Check out time be at 11:00am versus 10:00am to get up eat, pack and get out by 10 was a little rushed.

We will definately will keep this property in mind when we visit this area again.

Four Bear Lodge

  • 5 of 5

My college aged sons, one girl friend, my husband and I spent a long weekend skiing at Sunrise Ski Resort. Four Bear Lodge was the perfect retreat after long days of skiing. Warm, comfortable very clean surroundings, with a fire place, made our stay very inviting. Our contact, Gary, provided excellent customer service. He was easily accessable at any hour. The Four Bear Lodge has all the home items you need (other than food), to make your stay a comfortable one. Try it! I guarantee you will like it!
