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.

When you pack up your car and head out for a vacation, you hope that the destination will be worth the effort. The "Hodge Lodge" did not disappoint, there was plenty of room, very comfortable and "homey". With 11 of us under one roof I thought there would be times that it would feel crowded, but that was not the case. The first 2 days we stayed home and never once felt "crowded". Pine is a beautiful place, with good hiking trails near by, wonderful scenery and fresh air. We would definitely return to the "Hodge Lodge".
House was amazing. This was the second time I stayed and both times have been awesome. Owner is on top of everything and very good to work with. Would highly recommend.
The owner made the experience. There are plenty of lovely properties to stay at in pine, but Mr. Hodge really went out of his way to make everything easy so we could just enjoy the weekend. I would stay there again in a heartbeat.
This was a very nice place to stay for our group of 9 people, and we really loved the location. It is close enough to Phoenix to be convenient, but rural enough to feel like we were away from everyone. We basically lived in the fishbowl room, which was big enough for everyone to hang out in to watch movies, work on puzzles, play games, enjoy the scenery, or just sit and visit. The apartment down below is completely separate from the main house which made it inconvenient to use for anything other than sleeping and showering, but it was nice to have the extra room. We could never figure out how to turn any lights on in the fireplace room, so we didn't really use that room either. The kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans for cooking (high chairs and lots of plates/dishes for children), and we loved having it so centrally located. We had one day with almost no water pressure in the entire house. I made a call to the owner and was informed that the city was working on the water that day. He made a call to the city, then called me back to let me know it would be back on by 5 pm (very reassuring). It was a problem because several family members had not showered yet, and we couldn't do the dishes in the kitchen without any water. The water did come back late in the afternoon, but it was frustrating during the day. There are plenty of bathrooms for everyone. We loved going for walks in the area, and seeing deer in the meadow out front in the mornings. There were plenty of blankets and sleeping bags in the house to keep us warm, also. The beds were good overall, except for the queen bed in the apartment, which felt like it was 2 separate beds. We really enjoyed our time in the cabin and will most likely return again.
