About Don Flake

William Jordan Flake and James Clark Owens, my great grandfathers purchased the ranch that became the town of Show Low, Arizona. William J. Flake was the pioneer founder of Snowflake.

We have 12 children and an ever growing number of grand children who love to come to the cabin as often as they can.

We know you will love the property as much as we do.

Don Flake purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Don Flake chose Lakeside

The property is right next to beautiful open forests yet it is within two miles of the center of Lakeside and three miles of the center of Pinetop.

Perfect for big groups. Mothers with sleeping babies can be in one end of the cabin while big, happy, boisterous groups can be in the other end.

Mountain lakes, great hiking trails, sledding, skiing, fishing, etc. are all within minutes but with almost 4 acres you don't need to leave the property to have a fabulous time.

What makes this cabin unique

For larger groups or special events we offer discounts for renting both our Woodland Lake Cabin and our home on Bald Eagle Point on Rainbow Lake two miles away. Ask us for details.

With stables, a coral and an arena on the property, you are welcome to bring your own horses.

If you prefer white mountain stables is near by and they provide great horseback riding adventures.

Family time

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in your cabin. It was really great to get 4 generations together. There was plenty of room for all 16 of us to hang out together or to have private time if we chose to do so. Having 7 bathrooms was a big plus. Luckily the weather cooperated and we got snow the day we arrived, which made my grandchildren very happy. Barry was very helpful and readily available. He even came over and took a group picture for us. There are however a few things that could be improved.

1. Ensure there is extra toilet paper stocked in each bathroom.

2. It would be nice to have towels in the bathroom instead of in a central location.

3. The side of the house with the majority of the bedrooms was defined colder than the rest of the cabin. We did call Barry regarding this and he was great about getting someone out promptly to have it checked out. But even after the problem of the air intake vent being blocked by boxes was taken care of it was still a little chilly.

5. I would definetly add some seating on all of the decks. I realize the weather was cold while we were there, so hopefully during the warmer months there would be more available.

However, with that said I not only gave 5 stars, but would definitely stay here again.

Thank you

Amazing Time

  • 4 of 5

My family and I just rented this cabin again for 5 days over the Thanksgiving holiday and had a wonderful time! The cabin was great and was able to accommodate our large group. The only thing i was recommend is getting better Wi-Fi. We were very happy to Barry was still there. He's a very kind, helpful and attentive person.

Thank you,

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

It was a great place for our family reunion. Very clean and lots of room. Having all the bathrooms was a big plus. Our family had a great time, and would certainly recommend it to anyone. Thanks for all the help from Barry. Would love to use it again sometime.

Large and spacious

  • 4 of 5

This place is great for multiple families. All but two of the bedrooms have their own bathrooms, making it very private for each guest. There were ample cookware and dishes. As mentioned in other reviews, some of the windows do not open, but I hear that they are working on getting them fixed. I have written the owner personally about things I would add, such as making sure there is bath soap, shampoo and conditioner in each bathroom. And we would have liked to use the large patio to eat, but without an outside table that did not happen. The rear patio is small in comparison to the size of the cabin. It would be great if the cabin had cable TV. Not that we needed TV, but it would have been nice. We had Netflix for the kids to watch. I did not search, but if board or card games were there, that would have been fun too. I will also mention that the place needs a thorough cleaning. When we arrived, there were old moldy coffee grounds still in the coffee maker. For the $275.00 cleaning fee, I expected more than just clean towels and sheets. We would return, if they do better with the cleaning and get rid of the bad smell near the fireplace by the dining table. We could not eat at that table. It smelt like a cat had sprayed in that area. This is why I cannot give 5 stars. Just FYI Don is working on all of the areas that I mentioned so that the place is in better shape for the next guest.
