Christopher Creek House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Enjoy the quiet elegance of this creekside home nestled among trees, woods, and stream in the hamlet of Christopher Creek. This special retreat is in the mountains 20 miles east of Payson, directly below the stunning Mogollon Rim vista. Less than a mile from the highway, the home is easy to access in all seasons, yet still perfect for those who enjoy quiet, wildlife, and beauty all around them. The hiking and fishing are outstanding in this forested area abounding with lakes, streams, and magnificent mountain views. Or you can enjoy the amenities of nearby Payson, with its antiques, museums, restaurants and shopping.

The home’s large back deck is directly next to the stream, making it a delightful area for eating, relaxing, and wildlife viewing, with many squirrels and birds lending their chatter to the burbling creek sounds. The rim has many hiking trails, and is a great area for cross country skiing. Or simply stay warm at this refreshing retreat and restore your spirit among the trees and sparkling water.

Inside the home awaits another kind of beauty: understated refinement rare to find in a mountain hideaway. The 1900 SF home has two master bedroom suites with private dressing areas and bathrooms, each with patio doors adjoining the 80 foot deck. There is a third central bathroom with shower for guests, next to the laundry and pantry. Cozy, private enough for two, yet able to sleep five, the home is large enough to entertain even more if desired.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great house, squirrels, birds and deck! We even caught one rainbow trout in Christopher Creek! (Released it back to wild.) Woods Canyon Lake was a great suggestion. Had great time. We will be in touch to rent again in near future! Thank you!!!

Definitely Home-Away-From-Home

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing place to spend the weekend. We aren't new to renting places around the area and have had our share of good and bad experiences. Well, we can definitely add this one to the good column. The place is simply perfect, nice and quite. Has absolutely everything you could need. Owner is absolutely easy to work with and even cooked us some of the best brownies I've ever had.

I will definitely recommend this location to my friends and family and to anyone looking for a get away from Phoenix, specially during the summer.

Big Beautiful Relaxing Patio!!!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay more than we expected. The pictures do not do it justice. Sitting outside on the patio by the creek in the late afternoon was exactly what we were looking for. It was so relaxing and quiet. We will definitely return for another visit.

Cozy home on Christopher Creek

  • 5 of 5

This was my third visit in the last 4 years to this vacation home. On this occasion, I invited my elderly parents to stay with me. We had a wonderful time relaxing on the large tree shaded patio overlooking Christopher Creek. One night we even saw an elk in the front yard! We really appreciated the fully equipped kitchen and dining area. The bedrooms are large and comfortable. Won't be long before we are back for visit number four. Thank you Anita!

Exactly as advertised.....escape the heat and Coolness by the Creek

  • 5 of 5

The house was what we had expected....just the right size for our family. The owner was readily available as we had questions about the house and surrounding area. The deck and sound of the creek was relaxing. Nearby trails to hike and canyon lakes to fish. Walkable stores and restaurants. Neighbors were all friendly.
