About Michelle and Matthew Baller

High school sweethearts, Matthew and I have been together for over 30 years. We moved to Tucson, from Denver, 14 years ago, where I work as a Reading Specialist with elementary aged students. Together, my husband and I run a local 4H club, where my kids participate in Trap & Skeet Shooting and Archery. We have two teenagers and plan to make many memories with them, here at Cinder Mountain Retreat, before they leave the nest!

Michelle and Matthew Baller purchased this house in 2014

Why Michelle and Matthew Baller chose Pinetop-Lakeside

We love this home because of the tranquil view it offers of the Indian Reservation forest, thus we named it Cinder Mountain Retreat. Also, the fact that it is newly remodeled, is a huge bonus to us. We felt it was time to buy this vacation home because we have a long history of visiting this area often to hunt elk, fish, camp, kayak, snow ski and gamble. Now that we own Cinder Mountain Retreat, we are especially blessed and excited to share it with extended family from Arizona and our Tucson friends.

What makes this house unique

Cinder Mountain Retreat has been newly remodeled and this is what initially attracted us to the property. Once we viewed Cinder Mountain Retreat in person, we were in awe of the backyard view. It is rare to have unobstructed 180 degree views of the Indian Reservation. Because we want all guests to have a positive experience, most everything in this home has been newly purchased. Another perk to renting this home is the convenient access to skiing, fishing, kayaking, hunting and so many other recreational activities. There is definitely something here, in this area, for all ages to enjoy.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a phenomenal time at this cabin. It is well maintained and has every amenity you can think of. The cabin had plenty of space for my wise and I and our 4 boys. It is beautiful, inside and it! I recommend this cabin to all! Our 4 boys loved the bunk bed room and enjoyed the area outside... They had plenty of room to play in the snow around the cabin. The furniture and TV's were top of the line... And the fire place was awesome! Overall, we loved this cabin and plan on visiting it again!!!

We had a great time! The snow was incredible and so beautiful around your home. It was easy to find- great access from 260. Your home was spotless and so comfortable. Everything we needed was there and then some. Great communication by you. I would definitely recommend this property - and have already done so!!! Thank you again for your hospitality

What a beautiful, clean, cozy home with all the necessities. We were in Ahhhhh while spending our Thanksgiving here & in Pine Top, AZ. We had plenty of fire wood and high end amenities. We did not go without while staying at this home. The location was private, close to shops and dining, a beautiful neighborhood for walks etc. The owners were very professional and communicative. We will definitely stay here again. TWO THUMBS UP!

What a great place to stay! Our group of women (6 of us) had a wonderful time at your beautiful home. Everything was perfect. Even the ease of using the television was great. I think we totally enjoyed the snow and fireplace the most. We couldn't have asked for any place better. Your home was amazing!! Thankyou again and we will be back next year for our 4th annual girls getaway.
