About LINDEN OLSON

We are partially retired farmers from extreme southwest MN. While on vacation in AZ we found this area to be a refreshing change from the grassland prairie we have lived in for most of our lives. Warmer in the winter than MN and cooler in the summer than southern AZ this scenic area offers many attractions and activities for those who like hiking, sightseeing, shopping, rock climbing, simple relaxation or any number of other individual or family interests.

LINDEN OLSON purchased this cabin in 2012

Why LINDEN OLSON chose Arizona

Nestled among tall Ponderosa pines our home offers something for everyone whether it is for rest, relaxation and rejuvenation; a get away or escape; or a cozy place curl up with a good book or to come back to after a day of hiking in a forest, desert or mountain setting; antiquing; horseback riding; mountain biking; skiing; boating; shopping or sightseeing. Eat in one of a variety of good area restaurants or prepare a meal using our fully equipped kitchen and/or gas grill. Get a refreshing night of sleep in a good bed in a quiet area. If you are in the right place at the right time you may get a glimpse of some of the elk, deer, squirrels, birds, coyotes, javelinas or other wildlife that inhabit the area. Enjoy antiquing or/and looking at artistic creations in Strawberry, Pine, and Payson. Want more? Take a day trip to Sedona or Jericho. Need something? A scenic 19 mile drive down Hwy 87 lies Payson, AZ, a town of 17,000 that offers most of the services of a large city including shops of all kinds, antiquing, golfing and seasonal activities. Want to beat the heat in the summer? Strawberry is about 20 degrees cooler than the valley around Phoenix.

Strawberry Haven

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely spacious cabin, with all the amenities of home, a beautiful view and just a zip down the road for groceries or a meal out. We saw two elk in the yard our first morning and it really set the tone for the stay.The host was there when needed and answered all questions we had and gave us a quick run down of the property and then was gone. There was room for some people to play cards at the table, while others ate at the bar and still others watched tv or found a quiet corner to read a book. The deck is lovely for a glass of wine in the evening or a great place to watch day fade to night in the pines. We look forward to staying here again!

Perfect home away from home without the extreme Phoenix heat!

  • 5 of 5

Great spacious home with huge windows and lots of light. Relax on the wrap around deck with cool breezes, gorgeous views of Ponderosa pines, and birds singing, while you drink your coffee, read or just relax and unwind. Sleep peacefully with the windows open in the most comfortable beds ever. Spend the day out walking or hiking and check out the antique stores and gift shops with all their treasures. Use the fully equipped kitchen to prepare meals or visit some of the many restaurants nearby. Have some fun at the casino in nearby Payson. The fudge and cheese spreads from the goat farm down the road are awesome. I cannot say enough great things about Linden Olson, the owner. He is so helpful and organized. They have things cataloged in a binder so you can find them. Great place to enjoy family, friends or take your bridge group. Experience this once and you will be making plans to return in the near future.

Perfect Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Our family and two pug dogs enjoyed our stay at Strawberry Haven the end of February. This cabin/home is a beautiful retreat while still being close to amenities. We spent our afternoons sunning on the wrap around deck and evenings grilling and dining outdoors. Later we were enthralled gazing at the spectacular stellar sky display.

Our son enjoyed a little privacy at night at the attached, and charming, bunk house.

My husband and I loved the upstairs roomy bedroom and attached bathroom. We found that the bed was more comfortable than even our bed at home.

Charlie met us at the cabin and offered his assistance and a nice chat about the area. Charlie is the best and we count him as a friend now, as this was our third visit.

This cain is perfect in so many ways, including a fenced dog run. It has exceeded our expectations every time and we are looking forward to our next stay in the near future.

Great 20th wedding anniversary getaway

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was perfect to fit our families needs for our getaway. We chose to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary and our daughters birthday here together as a family. Our teenagers daughters enjoyed their stay as much as we did. This place was super comfy and met all our needs. I fell in love with the house's floor plan. My husband and I enjoyed our Fossil Creek hike together and enjoyed seeing the waterfall too. I would book this place again in a heartbeat. Thank you!
