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.

Very Nice and quiet retreat
Loved the clean air surrounded by nature as well as the beautiful home. Anita was very pleasant and made our experience one to remember. She also left home made brownies for us when we arrived as well as a very clean home. We loved it
Thank you! Enjoyed having you!
NICE QUIET SLEEPING CABIN ON A BABBLING CREEK
We needed a pet-friendly home for 4 adults and 3 dogs while we helped our kids house-hunt in Payson. Owner of property was nice enough to extend our stay by a day when we ran into some real estate problems in town. Beds have foam mattress. Very comfy. Creek runs across the back, but it was too cold to open the windows/doors when we were there to enjoy the soft sound of the water. Nice deck in back to overlook the creek. Can't recommend for fellow dog owners as we found an unwrapped chocolate candy bar left on the floor. But for humans...yes, it was relaxing.
So sorry about that! Will doublecheck from here on out!
Comfy, Cozy and Peaceful Respite!
We had a very enjoyable stay at this lovely and spacious home! The house was clean, the kitchen well stocked, and the beds very comfortable. Anita greeted us with her signature brownies and was a sweet and gracious hostess. Of course, the back patio deck is the best part of the property, I only wish we'd had more time to spend on it; we were out hiking and visiting old favorite sites for most of our stay and were only able to take advantage of it on one of the three nights we were there. But, it was so nice and relaxing having a glass of wine by the creek at the end of a long day of hiking! Had it been warmer, we would've enjoyed our coffee on the deck, but it was just a little too nippy for that, but we had fun watching the squirrels run round and play from the dining room table. Overall, we had a great experience and would highly recommend this comfortable, cozy and relaxing home!
Thanks for sharing your lovely home with us, Anita, we'll definitely check with you first next time we're planning to stay in Payson!! : )
Thank you! I look forward to seeing you again! Anita
We planned a family celebration of the my husband's 70th birthday and this house was perfect for that occasion. Even with the snow on our arrival and frigid temps while we were there. The patio was perfect with it's sun during the day and the fire pit to make s'mores. The great room was so roomy for all of us as well as the well-equipped and large kitchen. The two master bedrooms with their own bathrooms were much appreciated. There were 13 of us who gathered there the majority of the time, and everything was terrific. We are already talking about having another family weekend using this particular place for House Central. Thanks so much to Anita for making this possible. And the brownies on our arrival were a huge plus. Yum!
Glad you enjoyed it! Just to clarify, I only have two bedrooms and most of the guests slept elsewhere, right? :) Thank you for cleaning up so well! We look forward to your return! Anita
A relaxing respite in the north country!
This Christopher Creek property was ideal for a relaxing break from city life!!! Anita had a welcoming batch of home made brownies. The house is VERY spacious!! The split plan, with a very large bedroom on either end of the house is ideal for larger groups. And both bathrooms have the sink outside of the shower/toilet for convenience. The kitchen is fabulous!!! There is every pot, pan, bowl, utensil and gadget you could hope for in a VRBO!!! It is a very convenient kitchen to work in!!! And plenty of food staples to help out with baking. The back porch is HUGE and it's great fun to watch the squirrels and birds through the large sliding glass doors. The house has many windows and plenty of light. The house is well stocked with books and games and two televisions. Thanks Anita for your hospitality!!!
Dear Anita, we enjoy a lot your cabin. Thank you for all your services and the delicious brownies. We had a snow the last day and enjoyed so much ❄... we had a great time. I hope we will come back soon.
Thank you! :)
