About Ken and Judy Petersen

We purchased this cabin in 2002 and did an extensive remodel. We added a master bathroom with dual vanities and two walk in closets for both bedrooms. Total added square footage added was about 200 square feet. Formerly a long term rental, we decided we wanted to enjoy the cabin also and occasionally reserve a weekend for ourselves to escape the Arizona desert heat. We are continually updating the cottage. In 2014 updates include new stone on the fireplace and wainscot exterior, new king bed in the master, décor corbels on the exterior, and a new gas bbq grill. For 2015, new exterior paint and added interior décor. Our goal is to use this as our summer retirement home.

Why Ken and Judy Petersen chose Arizona

This cabin sits on a special lot with Blue spruce and Ponderosa Pines as well as a few Quaking Aspen. Silver Leaf Maple trees add a beautiful texture as the breeze stirs the leaves. Blue spruce and Limber pines are additional varieties you'll find on the property as well as indigenous rose plants.. The circular drive allows easy access in winter conditions for all vehicles. The location is the absolute best with the town of Pinetop a couple of minutes away as well as the closest area to sking and all that the National Forest wonders to explore. Hondah casino just 2 miles away. There are two golf courses within a stone's throw, Pinetop Lakes and Pinetop Country Club.

What makes this cottage unique

Expansive wood framed windows which have crank openings allow the summer mountain air in without the rain entering the home. The natural rock fireplace with masonry construction is rare. The floor plan allows for maximum usage of space and feels much larger than it is. The cottage is tastefully decorated with most furnishings new or updated continuously. Words like comfortable and quaint are overused but really do describe the feeling here. Perfect for couples, retirees, and small families.

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I really cannot say enough good things about my experience here! From the very beginning(pre booking) Judy promptly replied to my emails and questions and also called me! The cottage is very comfortable, clean, well stocked and in a quiet, safe neighborhood surrounded by trees. Shopping and restaurants are a short 5-10 min. drive.

Summer or winter, single or married, do not hesitate to rent this! Thanks Ken and Judy for a wonderful stay!

Great property in a very convenient location with great owners

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience over the 4th of July and this cottage was very nice and completely exceeded our expectations. The owners were great to work and we really had no problems or issues whatsoever during our stay or during the reservation process. We would completely recommend this home for trips to Pinetop and plan to return in the future.

Goldilocks and the Three Bears would give the Petersen cabin their stamp of approval. Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Ken and Judy, we had an awesome, relaxing time at your Pinetop-Lakeside cabin. It was perfect for me and Ted, we felt very comfortable. The cabin was clean, we had no problems with the cable or wi-fi, there was plenty of spa-like fluffy towels and bath amenities. And the kitchen was fully stocked with any appliance you could ask for while on vacation - including a waffle maker and mixer in case you wanted to bake a cake. I usually travel with my own wine cork extraction mechanism, but there were 2 in the kitchen drawer. But I couldn't find an ice cream scoop ! Oh my..I just revealed two of my weaknesses - wine and ice cream! Ted fished almost all of the lakes in the area with his inflatable boat. He was successful in catching some nice trout and we enjoyed our trout dinner on the deck amongst the wonderful pine trees. The location of your cabin is perfect - close to shopping, restaurants and fishing. A brisk morning walk in the neighborhood, which was very quiet, was the best way to start the day. This was our first time in Pinetop-Lakeside and it was wonderful. Thank you for letting us stay at your cabin, we will be back again! Chris and Ted

Does it get better than this???

  • 5 of 5

I can't begin to describe how wonderful our stay was. It's not our first time here, but coming back is a beautiful new experience. It is a small wonderful home with everything you need. It is REALLY the right size for a normal size family. The house is perfect for relaxing and looking out at the snow or a cozy fire. We had a great time and can't wait to come back again. Maybe during the summer which I heard was the busy season in Pinetop-Lakeside. Thanks again.

Outstanding property and location

  • 5 of 5

We picked a winner with the Petersen's cabin. It is an excellent layout, very nicely built and decorated, and is in about the best location possible if you want to go skiing at Sunrise. They have all the must haves of a quality property from comfortable beds and furniture, a nicely appointed kitchen, a fully enclosed garage and even logs pre-cut for the fireplace. We would definitely go back the next time we plan to go to the Pinetop-Lakeside area.

Our family had a great time here! Well stocked and very clean. Plenty of room to play in the snow outside in the yard. Wood fire burning place was amazing and made it feel quite cozy. Will definitely be returning in the future!
