About Vickie Owen

Vickie has owned this property since the early 90's when it was just a solar powered, cord style log shack. My family has built many memories through the years and enjoyed sharing the place with family and friends. After rebuilding just a few years ago Vickie decided to share the small piece of heaven with other's who might appreciate the peace of this secluded mountain hide-away. It is our families hope that you leave here with some great memories of a splendid vacation or wedding and that those memories last a lifetime.

Vickie Owen purchased this house in 2009

What makes this house unique

Very few places are available for private ownership in this area of Tonto Natl. Forest. It sits just under the Mogollon Rim at approx. 5500 foot above sea level so the climate is mild to moderate compared to Phoneix. The place sits next to Ellison Creek that flows year round as well as a fulyl stocked trout pond. The property is surrounded by tall pines and juniper's and the 52 mile Highline trail can be reached within a few hundred feet. Each time we go we see amazing wildlife: bobcat, eagles, wild turkeys, javalinas, rabbits, elk, deer, coyotes and SO much more!

Very nice cabin, wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

The whole family had a great time.

The kitchen had everything and more. Pantry was well stocked. If you forget something, don't worry. Most likely that spice is in the pantry. We grilled a lot. dogs loved the backyard. The bedrooms are nicely appointed with comfortable bedding. The beds and pillows were perfect. The split bedroom plan provided privacy as well.

Everything was there as described. We would love to come back for a nice relaxing weekend again. Thanks, Vicki for allowing us to enjoy the family cabin. Sanjay & Carol Lokare

Wonderful and relaxing weekend

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay at this wonderful place in the woods and we have booked a 2nd stay in October. Six of us were very comfortable in the house and the surrounding area. We enjoyed watching the grandkids hiking through the nearby creek and roasting marshmallows in the backyard fire pit. The pictures are accurate and the owners responded to us quickly. They were a pleasure to interact with. It's fully equipped and modern with books, board games and videos for the family. The beds, couches and chairs were very comfortable and there was plenty of space for all of us. We enjoyed morning coffee on the deck and going for nearby hikes. All of us are looking forward to our next weekend trip.

Nice escape from Phoenix

  • 4 of 5

The house was very clean and comfortable. The cool evenings were a nice break. The balcony is nice but the chairs and patio table should be replaced. The kitchen was well stocked and had everything for preparing meals. The drive down the gravel road is about 30 minutes so bring what you need to keep trips to town to a minimum.

We did enjoy the stay very much. I also appreciated that by leaving the house in the same condition we found it eliminated the cleaning fee
