Gorgeous Mountain Home

Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Bath, (Sleeps 10)

This gorgeous mountain home is located in the Santa Catalina Mountains located in the Coronado National Forest north of Tucson, Arizona. It is located in Mt. Lemmon which is 9,157 feet above sea-level and receives approximately 180 inches of snow annually. Summerhaven is the beautiful small town near the top of the mountain. This home is within walking distance to this town. It is a summer residence for some Tucson residents. It is near Ski Valley which is the southernmost ski destination in the US.

This beautiful home is two levels of spacious living. The views are breath taking and especially while sitting out on the beautiful stone patio under the star lit sky, among over 80 fruit trees. There is a built in fire pit located on the patio next to the built in BBQ grill and includes patio set. The kitchen is fully equipped for entertaining family and guests. This serene setting is always 45 degrees cooler in the summer than Tucson! Temperatures range anywhere from 60 to 75 degrees in the summer. There are many hiking trails, all of which we have information on located in the cabin for your enjoyment. Also located near this home is the incredible University of Arizona, Mt. Lemmon Sky Center. This SkyCenter presents programs all nights of the week and during the days in summer months. Information for reservations also available in the home. This program is an exceptional science learning facility!

Also located near this home is the Rose Canyon Lake and resort. This lake is surrounded by Pondersoa Pines and although this area burned during the devastating Aspen Fire of 2003, many of the larger trees survived. The Catalina Highway, also called the Mt. Lemmon Highway runs up the Santa Catalina Mountains, from the east of Tucson up to Summerhaven. Get your camera out for the ride up, there are plenty of stops along the way for stopping for breathtaking views and photos.

About Carolyn LeCocq

Al is a native Tucsonan and Carolyn is originally from Minnesota and has lived in Tucson for over 35 years. We absolutely love the desert and the beautiful mountain life.

Carolyn LeCocq purchased this cabin in 2003

Why Carolyn LeCocq chose Arizona

Al is a Tucson custom home builder and built our home on Mt. Lemmon originally in 2003. We had it finished about one year when the ASPEN fire took it along with about 350 other homes. Nothing was left except a small angel we had in our cabin and the tin roof. We immediately started the process and rebuilt the exact same cabin again! We loved the layout and did not change anything.

What makes this cabin unique

We enjoy the quiet, peaceful, serenity that is felt while up on the mountain. The air is fresh and the smell is clean. The birds sing and the days are quiet. We love to relax, prepare a wonderful meal, watch movies, catch up on our reading, hike and enjoy the quiet evenings while watching the beautiful star lit skies.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The stay at your cabin was an absolute blessing! Everything was in order, neat, clean and very restful! We enjoyed a great night sleep, wonderful fellowship and the atmosphere up here in Summerhaven was beyond description.

THANK YOU for providing this place to stay, along with all the amenities. We ALL LOVED it!!!


Be Blessed!

Ceiling noise , rest was great!

  • 5 of 5

There are 3 cabins built into one. We were on the bottom cabin, you are able to hear every foot step and then some from the cabin above us and it echoed through the whole cabin. Only annoyance was when we were trying to sleep. The cabin itself was great and our time there was wonderful. If we had any problems the owners responded right away. We would deffenitly rent from them again, but this time have a cabin to ourselves or stay at the top level.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry that the noise was a factor. That is why we are always sure to mention this to renters. Actually we have three cabins and this one is only two. The other is up the road. We were happy to have you as a guest. Thank you.

Gorgeous views and a unique house

  • 3 of 5

Clean house with unique layout. Parking and accessibility was an issue but other than that would recommend LeCoq.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. As far as the parking, you are correct ....with a lot of these cabins such as ours built into the mountain side, the driveway is steep and there is not vacant spots to park. However, it is always safe to park along the road, since there is minimal traffic. Hope to see you again! Thank you

Fantastic Cabin, Fantastic Family

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I have stayed at the LeCocq's cabins twice and each time we have thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cabin was renovated, comfortable, clean, and had gorgeous views. Carolyn and Al are a pleasure to work with and if something is awry, they are on top of it and fix it immediately. We look forward to staying at their cabins in the future!

New Year's Eve

  • 5 of 5

This is an absolutely beautiful cabin. Our group of friends spent New Year's Eve weekend and had a wonderful time. The inside is very nicely decorated and comfortable and the view from the balcony is incredible. We were lucky enough to enjoy a very snowy New Year's Day which was beautiful to watch while sitting in the hot tub :) Can't wait to do it again

White Christmas Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We rented the upper cabin for Christmas, and it was fantastic. The listing is beautiful, with lots of space and lovely furnishings. The house very comfortably kept seven people, and was even decorated for the holiday. The owners were helpful and easy to get in touch with. A great home to a mountain getaway on a snowy Christmas day. I would highly recommend it.
