About Sandy

My husband and I have been traveling to Greer for many years to enjoy the recreation that is available. Whether it was camping, hiking or skiing; we always had time to get away.

Sandy purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Sandy chose Arizona

We found the lot that was the best view of any we had seen in Greer. Sitting on top of the hill and looking down at the huge meadow below, we envisioned our new cabin and how it would look. We created the best floor plan possible with the Master on the main floor and a large area upstairs with two bedrooms, bath and a large loft for guests that we would have visit us.

We decided we wanted to have the uncovered deck that overlooks the meadow and we also wanted a covered deck with two porch swings in case we want to sit out and enjoy watching it rain.

What makes this cabin unique

We love that fact that it is a mile from the main road where it is very quiet and peaceful. Sitting on the deck and watching the elk graze in the meadow are some of the most exciting times and especially when there are babies grazing as well. Sometimes, we will be driving from the cabin on the way to one of the restaurants and we will have deer or elk cross in front of us.

We Got......Two Tickets To Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was in pristine condition. The cabin has an absolutely incredible view of the woodlands of Greer. The morning after we arrived, we sun bathed on the back deck, enjoying the warmth- AND the many blue jays and the red winged birds that ate from the feeders in the tree tops that were surrounding us. The next morning, as I was preparing breakfast, we saw a literal herd of deer pass the cabin on their way up the mountain, quietly and slowly...... it was amazing. Later that afternoon, as the large snowflakes drifted down all around us, we put on Christmas music (even though it was April) and played board games, drinking hot cocoa! Now if all THAT isn't what you call a perfect vacation! This place was paradise. WE LOVED IT!!!

Perfect place to enjoy the monsoon season in the White Mountains

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have stayed at Bears Ranch Cabin for the last three summers, but this is the first time we have been there during monsoon season. The cabin was the perfect place to watch the clouds build up, darken, then pour out rain with lightening and thunder. The view across the valley of the Little Colorado River during and after the storm is breathtaking. As always the cabin was well stocked with all we needed, clean, and extremely comfortable. While the storms dropped the temperature to 53 degrees, we sat around the fire and read or played games. A special time for my family! Thank you.

Owner's Response: Thank you for being our guest at Bears Ranch for a third summer. It is fun to be able to sit in front of the fire, play games or read in July and enjoy the coolness of the pines in Greer. Especially after coming from the heat in the valley. We are always happy to have you as our guest. Thank you again.

Relaxing, Comfortable, Clean Living

  • 5 of 5

We had a very pleasurable stay at the Bears Ranch Cabin and did not want to leave. The hot tub was perfect for the cold evenings. We had some mishaps with a broken bed frame and coffee maker that Sandy took care of right away. I would highly suggest this property to anyone in the future. The kitchen is stocked with everything you would need and the cabin was very clean when we arrived.

Perfect Escape From The Valley Heat PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the cabin before a few years back. To this date, it is still perfectly clean, with great appeal. Nestled in the back part of Greer, but a 20 minute walk to the village, our family loves this cabin. We noticed all the bird feeders off the patio and went into town purchased bird seed and elk corn from the local feed store per their recommendations. It was the best thing we could have done for the trip. We saw many different species of birds just sitting on the patio playing games with the kids, elk in the meadow, deer in the yard in late evening (just in front of us, you could almost reach out and touch them), and several other animals like a fox, chipmunks, etc..... All from the patio. The grill is great and we cooked out a few nights, but also went to Molly Butlers to have dinner and hang with the local crowd. It was Greer Days so our timing was perfect and we had an event everyday for the kids to attend along with getting up early to fish the Little Colorado and the nearby lakes. The creek fishing was the best as they just stocked the creek, my little girl caught her first trout and it was great. I can't say enough about the cabin, very clean, all the items needed to make your stay easy. All you need to bring is your menu and drinks for your meals. We enjoyed the patio and played games during the afternoon and watched the storms come in and enjoyed the rain as well. Sandy was a great host to communicate to get to the house, and also let us know that the spa was getting worked on which for us was not a problem, as we weren't there to use the spa. If you are looking for a great cabin, stocked with the items you need to cook with (bring your food), and a very clean and modern cabin then look no further. Plus it is tucked away from the crowds and traffic (but an easy walk in). We also took our lab who is older and trained and he loved hanging on the deck with us and chilled. I would give this cabin a 10 out of 10 for staying. Enjoy.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your Family vacation and your stay at Bears Ranch Cabin. The deck is such a great place to relax and see the elk and deer in the meadow below. Sounds like you had good luck fishing in the Little Colorado too. We are glad you found everything you needed at our cabin. We hope you will come back again for a third visit to make more fun Family memories.

Beautiful Cabin in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Greer. The cabin was equipped with everything we needed to prepare meals. The furnishings were cozy and comfortable. The bear decor was perfect and matched the cabin's name. This was a great VRBO experience. We've stayed in a few that have a lot of clutter, and give it the feel that someone lives in the home full time. We appreciated that this home felt like a home away from home.
