Why Steve and Stephanie chose Pinetop-Lakeside

It's a REAL LOG CABIN with the logs exposed inside...not plaster walls, but a true rustic cabin in the woods. When my husband found out that this place was for sale, we called the previous owner, stayed the night, and fell in love. What a dream come true to own such a wonderful cabin. We now enjoy sharing it with people that will cherish it as much as we do!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just got back to hot, sunny Tucson after a fabulous weekend at your cabin. As you said, we were very impressed and had a great time. Your cabin is amazing! It was comfortable, cozy, nicely decorated with lots of personal touches. I loved the stuffed "moose head" and bear on the walls! The kitchen was well-stocked with almost everything that we needed. And for food and other things, the Safeway was so close and convenient. The 1 mile loop through the neighborhood made for a nice morning walk and we saw some squirrels and birds, but no deer or elk. The reading nook was so comfortable; it was also a nice place for a nap. The master bedroom and slate shower were great. The loft was cute also. The Vornado fan was impressive - we had to turn it on just to check it out! We would definitely consider the Hidden Forest Hideaway for another stay.

Wonderful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was everything we were looking for and some things that we didn't even know we were looking for. Beautifully maintained and extremely clean, our first impressions of the home went above and beyond.

The home is furnished very nicely and comfortably with lots of spaces for our family of four to come together or to spread out. Anything you might need in the kitchen is there. I couldn't locate dish towels right away and my e-mail to the owners was answered QUICKLY. Although there is not a dishwasher, I appreciated the fact that the water gets nice and HOT for clean-up and we didn't find the lack of a dish washer to be an issue at all. Loved the dining space with all the windows to sit and enjoy the outdoor views while beginning or wrapping up our days. Beds were very comfortable. Games, books, more TV options than you could ever use. On and on and on!!

Then you come to the outdoor spaces. WOW! The gazebo sitting area in the backyard was where we spent a lot of time - lovely space to either watch the ongoing corn hole, bocce or ping pong games or to wait your turn to get into one - we were also fortunate to be able to sit around the fire pit and listen to the light rain - so relaxing. Hammock to lay back and read. Hot tub to unwind at the end of the day. Other than when we were hiking, we spent the majority of our time here in the backyard enjoying all that was there. Wonderfully thought out.

The homeowners provide a binder detailing anything you might need to know about the home and the area and were very easy to contact with any questions.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at this cabin and would book it again without hesitation! Thank you so much~

Perfect place to relax

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the cabin so much it was hard to get motivated to hike or explore the area! The cabin itself was very nice but the backyard is what really set it apart from other cabins we have stayed at. From early morning coffee to late night dinners around the fire pit, we spent more time in the backyard than inside. With a television mounted in the gazebo, a ping pong table, and a corn hole game even the teenager spend a lot of time outside too! Did I mention the hot tub and the large outdoor Bluetooth speaker? The cabin is well equipped and very comfortable. It is close to restaurants and the grocery store as well. I would have no problem staying here again or recommending this cabin to any friend or family member.

Nice cabin with lots of extras! Personally, my favorite area was the backyard. We spent more time out there than in the cabin. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

great stay in cabin

  • 4 of 5

Cabin was very nice. Beds were comfy. Making reservation was hassle-free. Hot tub was terrific. It was great to have our dog with us and escape the heat of Tucson.

Although they did not have central AC, they did have a portable AC unit which we used in the bedroom. It worked fairly well for temps in the 80s.

We will be back!

Beautiful cabin tucked away in the pines. This place is a renters dream. It had everything you would ever want and need plus great little extras. Perfect for a family. The patio with the fire pit and Jacuzzi is amazing. I would definitely rent again and have no problem recommending this place. It is close to restaurants, the movie theater and shopping!

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time, this week! This cabin is described perfectly. Plenty of room, all the amenities of home. We enjoyed watching the deer, roaming around among the trees. It was nice to not have to go out to eat, every night. There are stores nearby, which is very convenient. Unfortunately, we had a family emergency and had to leave a day early. Thankfully, the time we were there, we were able to relax and have a great time!!
