Pine Cabin Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedroom, 4 Baths, Fireplace, 360 Degree Spacious Lounging Deck

The main benefits of “Hodge Lodge” are LOCATION and VIEW.

LOCATION: Our house is about 1 mile from stores and restaurants. It borders Tonto National Forest at the end of Pine View Dr. on the eastern slope of Strawberry Mountain. The area is secluded and peaceful with lots of wildlife.

VIEW: The view is really nice. You see the whole valley and have a clear view of the Mogollon Rim. When you are on the upper deck you are nearly at tree top level and nothing will block your view. The night sky and stars are breathtaking.

The house has 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms that will sleep 8 in beds and for additional sleep options we have a futon in the fireplace room and sleeping pads in the loft.

The fourth bedroom is the apartment which has a private access from the back of the house with the following amenities. King size bed, bathroom with shower, microwave, refrigerator, private patio, WiFi, 42 inch flat screen with satellite TV, and two recliner chairs


This spacious chalet has (2500 sq. ft.) of living space and almost 2000 sq. ft. of outside decking nestled in the forest. It is a very relaxing and peaceful place. Everything you would need to prepare meals or just relax is furnished.

This house is located at the end of a well maintained gravel road. It is one of the highest locations in Pine situated on the east slope of Strawberry Mountain. The view is spectacular. The upper level deck raps around the house for 360 degree view of the area. Our living room is within feet of the Tonto national forest. You would be totally surrounded by tall Ponderosa pines. There is lots of wildlife small and large to view. (Elk, Deer, Coyotes and a variety of small game)

We are within walking distance to antique shops, restaurants, bars, library, community center and playground. Pine/Strawberry host several seasonal arts and crafts festivals, rodeos and other special events. There are many hiking, mountain biking and riding trails. Go horseback riding, golfing, fishing or swimming in the creeks/rivers. Pine has much to offer such as antique shops, restaurants, specialty stores, arts and craft festivals and other special events.

You would be 90 minutes north of Phoenix

157 miles hours from the Grand Canyon

5 miles for the north side of the Mogollon Rim

13 miles from Payson which has golf, airport, Restaurants, Movies, Wal-Mart, Home Depot, and lots of locally owned shops.

Nice Escape from the Phoenix Heat

  • 5 of 5

A great house with beautiful surroundings. We stayed for 3 nights and the weather was perfect and the scenery was a nice change from Phoenix. The owners made sure everything was in place ahead of time and he responded to communication very quickly. We also hiked in the Tonto Natural Bridge which was a great adventure. Would highly recommend this house!

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time in this home. It was exactly how it was described. Very clean and amazing views. We even had the luck of seeing elk. We can't wait to visit the area again and stay at this . We highly recommend it especially if staying with multiple families.

Great vacation stop!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Pine this weekend at the Hodge Lodge. The house was clean, roomy and comfortable, and we LOVED the wrap around deck with amazing views. Ken was super responsive and easy to work with. This is the first cabin I've stayed in where I can't wait to return. Thank you!

Very nice vacation rental

  • 4 of 5

Very nice property with beautiful views. It is nicely located off Hardscrabble Rd. and fully stocked with goodies.

Beautiful completely fenced in deck was great for our 2 dogs. The owner was very nice and easy to work with. I would definitely recommend this property.

Good restaurants : Randall House in Pine & McKays in Payson both accepted patrons with dogs :-)

Not so good restaurants: Mama Joes in Strawberry :-(
