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.

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
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.
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.
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!!!
Omg what a great relaxing experience we love this cabin I couldn't believe how big and beautiful this place was very clean peaceful huge kitchen beautiful patio great weather we're booking this for Labor Day weekend just bring DVD's TV in every room Thanks for the champagne nice choice.
This rental is very dark and filthy. Many things need repairs. Fan in our bedroom hung by a cord from the ceiling. Coffee maker was moldy. Decorated with left overs and college dorm room decor. Mattress pads on the beds so soiled they were brown. Unobstructed view from one window. Hair in shower drain. Bathtub did not hold water, and was so built up with grime you could write a long letter on it. The owner did bring a cell phone booster up because there was no service. The sheets had been washed.

THANK YOU GUYS AGAIN AND MAY GOD BLESS YOU FOR SHARING YOUR WONDERFUL CABIN WITH MY FAMILY AND ME! =))
My husband and I spent 3 days there for rest and relaxation in mid-June 2011. Al met us when we got there and showed us around the house. The house is huge and I especially loved the kitchen and all the amenities in the home. We originally came up to hike but all the trails were closed (by order of the Forest Service) so we took the short walk into town and wandered around there. We enjoyed the hot tub and the BBQ grill and used them both. I loved the steam room in the master bath. And we enjoyed watching birds riding some thermals over the mountain from the master bedroom deck. We took naps and read and watched a couple of sunsets. The living room was so comfortable with big leather furniture and a huge TV but it was a little odd to have to go into a closet to adjust the TV volume. I really loved the log furniture on the patio and am looking to get some for my home. It was nice to get away from the heat but it was also nice that we had free wi-fi too!
The master bedroom is awesome with big log furniture but it doesn't have window coverings so on our first nite there, it was difficult to sleep because of the full moon coming thru the open glass and skylight. So after that, we slept in one of the other bedrooms that had window coverings. Both beds were very comfortable. Overall, it's a great home to rest, relax and rejuvenate and I'm so glad we stayed there. If you come, bring all your food up with you. The general store in Summerhaven carries some stuff but it's a little spendy. And frankly, the mountain air will make you hungry.
Your home is beautiful. We so enjoyed our stay. From the mountain top views, hot tube and big screen TV to the master bedroom with fireplace, steam room and jacuzzi bath for two. It was wonderful, restful, and rejuvenating. Thanks so much and thanks for the bottle of champagne.
My husband and I rented this beautiful cabin for a week in late July 2010. There were a number of delightful surprises which we won't give away here. The one thing I was worried about was the scenery around the cabin because there were no pictures of the outside or view. But it turned out to be beautiful, like a tree house. The house is modern and fun and little funky in spots. It is on the side of a mountain, so there are stairs, though the levels allow more privicay and more exercise which is good. We enjoyed walking on the roads around the cabin. The small disappointments are that they should have more information about Mt. Lemmon for visitors readily available while you are at the mountain. There were no movies, picture puzzles or games so bring your own. It was a relaxing week and we will be back. It was nice that there were staples that we used sparily. Thank you Carolyn and Al for letting us use your cabin, it truly was wonderful.
The University of Az Observatory is located on top of Mt. Lemmon and info is inside the cabin. Tours are available. There is also a lot of hiking trails and also Rose Canyon Lake. All this information is in a book located inside the cabin.
