Torreon is a gated golf community developed by Desert Troon to accomodate the Phoenix (3 hour drive)and Tucson people (4 hour drive)looking for cooler summer temperatures.It is Arizona,sunny 350 days a year but here in the White Mountains (6,500 ft elevation) we rejoice in summer temperatures rarely reaching the 90's. With no humidity or no bugs, it is the best weather in the United States!

We know the importance of your 4 legged family member so we are pet-friendly, but beware Torreon does not allow fences so there is no containment.

The garage holds 2 cars and car rental & adult bikes are available. Great trails abound in surrounding state forests or walk and bike within the gated community. 5 minute WALKING distance to Clubhouse, Family Center, tennis, pool,hot tub, basketball, sand volleyball, fishing and Fitness Center. Two world class 18 Troon Golf courses, great restaurant & bar on site. There are riding trails behind Torreon on state lands, horse boarding facilities or arena and group horseback riding lessions.

What more could you ask for? We are in a fabulous location for both adults and children, beautiful setting, safe (24/7 roaming security),magnificent weather. Safeway grocery store is a 5 minute drive. Drive to Show Low (5 minutes) or Pinetop/Lakeside (20 minutes) for restaurants, shopping, antiquing. Come discover the White Mountains of Arizona and make everyone's summer memorable.

For winter guests, the Sunrise ski resort man-makes snow for a full season of skiing, snowboarding or snowmobiling. Sunrise is a 45 minute drive from our cabin, many rental stores along the way as well as at the base of the mountain. 4 wheel drive car is recommended.

About Stacey Ruggaard, Torreon vacation rental specialist

We lived in Fountain Hills AZ for three years and drove to the White Mountains (2 1/2 hours) for respite from the summer heat. We fell in love with the mountain views, the cool temperatures, 4 seasons and all the outdoor activities.After living abroad for 20 years, we found our place of peace in the White Mountains and built our dream loghome.The four of us and dog Jack live in this loghome year round except for the summer and 2 weeks around Christmas when we travel.

Stacey Ruggaard, Torreon vacation rental specialist purchased this lodge in 2006

Guestbook comments from the owner

What can we say? Wow! We have spent the last 10 years at different locations and this rates as one of the best. Lots of games of ping pong and pool and nights at the dining table playing games, made it a week we won't soon forget. Grandma's most favorite part: she has all her boys and grandkids together for the first time in years. Altogether we could not have picked a better place to spend this Christmas season. Plenty of room to get away and to get together! Snow appeared on Christmas Eve and the kids saw Santa Clause putting gifts under the tree and to say the least, all our wishes and dreams came true this Christmas 2012.

Beautiful Mountain Home

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth time staying at the beautiful spacious mountain home. Stacey is the best and always makes sure everything is perfect. The front deck is amazing and the views are endless. We love staying here and always look forward to coming back.

Great cabin among the pine trees

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was just as pictured and described. Our large family was very comfortable in the space, so much that we never even left the cabin. I highly recommend for a relaxing getaway.

exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

We found our Shaggy Bark rental to be exceptional, more than we expected. We had plenty of room for our group and the bedrooms with their own on suites were an exceptional bonus. We had everything we needed and the spaciousness inside and out added to our comfort and relaxation. This property is A+ in our opinion and Stacey responded quickly to any of our requests. Side note, although golf is not included we found Silver Creek was an exceptional alternative, the conditions were excellent and the greens were perfect and fast and the staff very friendly.

Great property, manager, location and community.

  • 5 of 5

The Shaggy Bark cabin is absolutely awesome. Nothing is needed to make your stay in the White Mountains absolutely awesome. The home, location, manager and accommodations are perfect for all ages. The manager/owner is terrific and will do whatever is needed to make your stay what you want it to be. This is the 4th time we have borrowed the cabin and live it more each time. Our children look forward to using the cabin with us as much as any vacation we take as a family including going to Maui!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review my home. Maybe consider a winter rental? It is a winter wonderland and can't you just imagine ho nice it would be to a book by a roaring fire while the snow falls lightly outside? Call me if you find that tempting... Amicably Stacey

Perfect family vacation home

  • 5 of 5

I organize a week long family vacation with my children, their spouses, and my grandchildren every year. We all agreed, this house was outstanding, a "ten out of ten!" Stacey, the owner, was super responsive and so accommodating. She's thought of every detail to share her home and assure a wonderful time. The house itself is absolutely beautiful and very well equipped. The game room and movie theater were a huge hit. We loved sitting out on the deck in the evening. The kitchen is fabulous for preparing meals, and the bedrooms with their own bathrooms gave each family privacy and space. We enjoyed the use of the Family Center and pool. All of the facilities were awesome! We had an amazing week!

Thank you, Stacey~

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review my personal log home. I'm so glad you enjoyed your time in my home. I know you only get together with your family once a year, but if you want to experience a winter wonderland and read a book by a roaring fire with snow falling outside the big windows, consider booking a weekend this winter! Amicably Stacey
