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 chimney and wainscot exterior, new king bed in the master, decor corbels on the exterior, and a new gas BBQ grill. For 2015, new exterior paint and added interior decor. In 2016 we added Trane central air conditioning and the best available roll-a-way bed for extra guest. For 2017 we have added upgraded slate gray kitchen appliances. Our goal is to use this as our summer retirement home.

Why Ken and Judy Petersen chose Arizona

This cottage 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 skiing 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. The recreation center is close by for swimming, work outs, spa, and so much more. An equestrian center is close by within the community as well.

What makes this cottage unique

Expansive wood framed crank windows and screened storm door allow the summer mountain breeze to draft through the cottage. On those few warm summer days, central air conditioning will keep you comfortable. Most cabins in Pinetop do not have A/C so this is unique to the area.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. The recreation center is just a couple of minutes away in the neighborhood and all of its amenities are available for guests. Just show a copy of the rental agreement and for a small fee guest can swim, work out, play tennis, and so much more.

Perfect size, lovely home!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was perfect for our family -there was literally nothing that we needed that they hadn't thought of already. Plenty of wood for a nice warm fire, comfortable furniture and beds, towels, coffee, shampoo, movies, games, good wifi, etc. We loved our stay here. It's an easy drive to ski at Sunrise and there were plenty of menus at the house from local restaurants so we had lots of information to plan our dinners each night. We didn't cook here, but we could have - the kitchen was fully stocked with everything you would need. The owner was very accommodating and easy to contact in advance of the rental. We would definitely stay here again on our next trip to the White Mountains.

Thanksgiving Success!

  • 5 of 5

Our young family of six had the perfect vacation at this lovely Pinetop Cottage! It had absolutely everything we needed, and I mean everything. The owner has paid attention to detail from warm throws, to games, to firewood, to movies, to a well supplied kitchen! We were able to put together a complete Thanksgiving dinner if that tells you anything. It was the perfect getaway. We also enjoyed the location, taking a walk through the quiet neighborhood and enjoying Woodland Lake Park and Show Low Lake. Our children are already asking, "When can we go back!?"

Perfect cottage for a weekend getaway

The cottage was perfect for two couples. We loved this rental which was close to the Tour of the White Mtns event. Each room was nicely decorated and the kitchen had all the amenities we needed to make great meals. We would definitely love to stay again. Our dogs loved it as well. Nice neighbors, too.
