Conrad Nelke purchased this cabin in 1985
We wanted a place away from the valley where all of the kids and grandkids could come and be together. We found the area while visiting friends in Whispering Pines in a gorgeous snowstorm the day after a warm Thanksgiving in Phoenix. It seemed like heaven to be able to share both worlds with only a two hour ride. We wanted in! We had the shell built and completed the house ourselves. We picked chandeliers from Mexico, rocks for the fireplace from all over the country, and furnishings from family pieces, 'gently used' and even broke down and bought a lot. It works as 'eclectic to the max,' The views in this area belong to God--we just bought here so we could share them. There is a feeling in the air here that brings out the best in people which makes them happy.
Inviting friends here for a day or a weekend is a joy for us & them. Everyday cares fall away as the pines, oaks, and juniper give the air a certain mountain tang. Actually, The 5,400 feet elevation makes the nights 25 degrees and days 15 degrees cooler than valley temperatures. Here, we have seasons that give us soft spring rain, exciting summer electriical storms, vivid autumn leaves, and frost, snow, & earmuffs.
We never tire of seeing the glorious views of 40 miles of Rim that we share with God. Sunsets from the north deck are amazing, and the experience of watching a storm approach through the valley until the new rain finally drives you from your nest in the porch swing inside--unforgettable. We have had many memorable family reunions here--there have been two Golden Wedding celebrations, a Honeymoon--the magic is just beginning. You won't want to forget your time here. Bring your best camera.
We had such a wonderful time. Me and my friends went up for a long weekend get-a-way to celebrate my birthday. The house was fantastic with great amenities. It did get cold but there was plenty of firewood to keep us warm while visiting in the family room. The downstairs was a great area for lounging and playing foosball and table tennis. We brought extra blankets and towels just in case but there was absolutely no need. We even brought burgers and dogs to grill and were able to enjoy them!
The view was amazing! On Saturday night, there started a light snowfall and when we woke up on Sunday morning it was absolutely gorgeous. We could see the snow from the house all the way to the rim. Absolutely fantastic.
We will definitely look to stay here again for my annual birthday get-a-way. We had a great time!
Everything was great! The cabin was in very good condition, this is actually the second time we attend and we hope to come back soon! The view is spectacular and overall it is a great cabin! Would definitely recommend!
Great place to get away with the family. Very comfortable. Quiet surroundings. Just far enough out of town. Great vacation. Thank you Conrad.
Well manages and clean cabin. We stayed there for 2 days and we enjoyed every seconds of our stay. Everything is organized. No issues at all. Conrad is very helpfull and very supportive.
If it would have more than 5 stars then I would have choosen that. Thanks a lot Conrad for your hospitality.
Our time at the cabin to celebrate Christmas with our large family was a complete success. Anything we needed was immediately accommodated by the Owner. Our kids & Grandkids enjoyed a great hike too. We will definitely consider this for another time with our family. Thanks a ton Conrad for allowing our family to create memories.
The owner Conrad maintained great contact and gave good directions. The cabin was spacious and met all of our needs. We brought up our family and extended family. All twelve of us were very comfortable. Two of the bedrooms two have balconies with awesome views of the forest. There we deer on the property the first evening we arrived. The basement was great. The kids played ping pong and had plenty of space to hang out together. The property is close to small creeks and not too far from town. Perfect family get-a-way. Thanks Conrad!
