About Steve and Stephanie

This cabin has a special place in our families heart. We have made many memories and are excited about sharing it with guests like you! I love to talk to our guests, so call any time or feel free to email me.

Steve and Stephanie purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Steve and Stephanie chose 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!

What makes this cabin unique

You will benefit from the location, wonderful experience of staying in a clean, cozy cabin with everything there for you. Stress free lodging with all of the comforts of being at home. The outdoor living space is amazing especially during the warmer months but the jacuzzi is year round and feels great after a day of skiing. Games, kitchen & cooking supplies, linens provided and more describe just a few of the many items we have to offer you. COME VISIT THE HIDDEN FOREST HIDEAWAY!!!

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~

Couldn't have ask for anything more.!!

This cabin exceeded all of our expectations.. The pictures you see on this site are beautiful but in person you are left speechless. If you are looking for a cabin that has that real cabin feel..Look no further.!! They thought of everything you might need. Its very clean and you feel right at home the minute you walk in the door. Steve and Stephanie did a great job putting a book together that covers anything you might have a question about. Also recommendations to some great restaurants. We were not disappointed.!! Pinetop Brewery has some Amazing wings and for breakfast, Darbis Cafe was outstanding.. We loved it so much we already booked another weekend. Thank you Steve and Stephanie for sharing your beautiful cabin. We have now found our perfect get away cabin. We look forward to making many more memories here.

Perfect Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at this cabin! We have 6 children ages 26 -6yrs and this cabin accommodated all of us perfectly! It is rustic but beautiful. The owners have thought of everything! The backyard is wonderful! Hot tub, cornhole, boche and firepit. The kids were in heaven and so were we!

Thank you so much for sharing your cabin home with us. We can't wait to come back this summer! Best cabin you can rent!

Everything you could want for a cabin getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the cabin for a long weekend. The cabin was so cute and homey. They had everything we needed. The backyard was nice and we spent all afternoon sitting outside playing bocce and corn hold. The firepit was perfect for roasting marshmallows at night. The beds were comfortable. We were so pleased to be able to take our dogs with us too! We would definitely return!
