About the property

Mountain Cabin, 3 Levels, 6 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, walk Out Basement

Relax and enjoy the awesome views, seeing Elk, Deer and other wild life from the decks, driveway or inside the cabin from the many windows. Visit the many shops along Main Street. Check out the sites by hiking, fishing, canoeing or touring the area by car. Take in live music at the local Taverns for some good times. Spend the night gazing at the Brilliant Star Lights and see how many Shooting Stars you can spot.

The Pine Chalet is an executive cabin retreat, offering expansive and spectacular views of the forested mountains of Northern Arizona. The cabin is an hour and a half drive from Phoenix and a two hour drive to the Grand Canyon.

The picturesque mountain community of Pine is located at the base of the Mogollon rim in Northern Arizona at an elevation of 5,367 ft (1,636 m). Pine was established by four Mormon families in 1879. Pine is located at 15 miles Northwest from Payson, AZ, with a Zip Code 85544. Depending on where you are located in the metropolitan Phoenix it is as little as 90 miles away on AZ State Route 87.

The pace is unhurried and relaxing. Enjoy the cool air among the tall ponderosa pines trees during the day and the star filled skies in the evening. The Pine Chalet has deck areas on all four sides of the cabin allowing for the pursuit of sun or shade as you prefer.

Take advantage of all that the area has to offer. Visit spectacular Tonto Natural Bridge. Fish the nearby Rim Lakes. Go horseback riding through the National forest, or meander through the forest on scenic hiking trails. For serious hikers, there are wilderness trails that continue for as far as fifty miles.

About The Pine Chalet Owners Since 2005, Jeri & Dan.

Like most people we know, we are both transplants from other States. Dan's moved to Tempe, Arizona December 1985, and Jeri's in July 1986.

Dan, was born, raised, and graduated from college in Wisconsin and moved to Tempe, Arizona December 1985.

Jeri, was born, raised, and graduated from college in New Mexico and moved to Tempe, Arizona July 1986.

We meet in 1987 by a mutual friend, who now lives in Colorado.

Our first backpack trip together was in 1988 and it was to Fossil Creek, we fell in love with the surrounding area. We have hiked and camped in the Tonto National Forrest, especially around the Pine / Strawberry area, for many years before purchasing our cabin. The short drive to escape the Phoenix summer heat was the major component of selecting the Pine / Strawberry area.

We both love the outdoors; biking, hiking, fishing, canoeing, white water rafting, backpacking, and camping. We have hiked, backpacked and camped at the Grand Canyon many times. We fell in love, and got married at the Grand Canyon National Park in 1991, out on the South Rim.

We purchased our cabin in Strawberry, Arizona in March 1996, and have loved every minute of it. In 2005, we decided to purchase a second cabin in Pine, Arizona, 3 miles south of Strawberry, as a cabin rental property. The Pine Chalet is the name we gave our cabin and that is how it all began.

The Pine Chalet Owners Since 2005, Jeri & Dan. purchased this cabin in 2005

Why The Pine Chalet Owners Since 2005, Jeri & Dan. chose Arizona

A hop, skip and jump away from the Valley of the Sun.

Location, Location, Location.

Our drive to The Pine Chalet is just 1 hour 15 minutes from our home in the valley of sun, and our first stop light is in Payson. The cabin is also just a 1 hour 45 minutes drive to the Phoenix Airport.

The Pine Chalet's expansive and spectacular views of the forested mountains of the Tonto National Forrest got us at first sight.

We enjoy:

+ Fishing and canoeing the Rim Lakes that are a short drive away.

+ ATV riding and mountain biking the many trails of the Tonto National forest that are just 5 minutes away.

+ Meander through the forest on the many scenic hiking trails without having to get in a car to drive to a trail head.

+++ Got us at fist sight too.

We like having a 5 minute drive to the heart of Pine, for good food and live music at the local Restaurants and Taverns. After a long day, of good times away from the cabin, just being able to unwind and spend the evening gazing at the Brilliant Star Studded Night Lights to finish off an awesome day, got us at first sight as well.

What makes this cabin unique

We love that we can share our Pine Chalet cabin with large families and friends under one roof to make awesome memories, spring, summer, fall, and winter.

Our family had a great experience.

  • 5 of 5

There was plenty of room for our 18 people party.

Loved the lower level. It gave enough privacy for those who wanted to get away from our big crowd.

The cabin has great views.

Great customer service!

Enjoyed the Pine Chalet tremendously and hope to return again !!!

  • 5 of 5

Geri and Dan, Thank you for your hospitality; we enjoyed the Pine Chalet tremendously and hope to return again sometime soon. The deck was a treasure, the house comfortably accommodated the group we brought, the backyard was enjoyed by all, and yes, we did see deer on your property (including a baby and mommy).

So much cooler than Phoenix, and we appreciated the hiking guide...... we tried two of them and a good time was had by all.

Thank you again.

The view is NOT worth the hassle

  • 1 of 5

If you are wanting to pay too much money to have a bad experience in a mediocre home, this is the cabin for you. The home is very outdated and old, there is nothing luxurious about it. You will need to bring your own towels since the owners don’t provide any of that for you— its extremely inconvenient. Be prepared to bypass VRBO because the owner makes you deposit CASH into her account ahead of time before even getting the ridiculous rules of the house. You will not get your deposit back! The rules of the house you will receive after you pay the owner is 2 pages long and states that any infraction will basically make you lose your deposit. The procedures for cleaning up the house upon leaving will take a minimum of 2 hours with a group of people and a single piece of trash left behind is $100 fee. One member of our group was unfortunate enough to arrive alone, 6 hours after check-in time, and the owner demanded that he help move things out of the house and into her car. Upon checking out, the owner also demanded our group stay around to help her move an oven up a flight of stairs into the house, but luckily we had to leave before she arrived.

The house itself is old and dusty, so it doesn't have a clean feeling. If you plan on sitting outside by the 'fire pit', all of the plastic chairs you will be offered are broken and will cut you...oh, and you will be charged for the plastic being broken. The entire property is sitting on a slanted lot, so it is very inconvenient to hang out in the backyard.

It is clear that the owner is not very capable of conducting a professional transaction because even the contract and documents she makes you sign are extremely poorly written and not meant to protect the renter at all. Even with video and photo documentation of leaving the house in great condition, the owner still made up bogus damage and took the whole deposit. Do yourself a favor and AVOID THIS PROPERTY!!

Owner's Response: Patrick was not eligible to receive the remainder of his $240.00 Security/Damage deposit because the cabin was not left damage free and he did not follow the rules, regulations and procedures for closing up the cabin that he received in emails with the payment confirmation, and 4 days prior to his arrival. He also received dated photos of his damages. A) The UFC fight of $60.00 ordered on 8/20/16, was deducted from his deposit. Patrick's Violations : 1. Garbage: He did not take his excess trash with him. The trash bin lid could not be closed all the way, and the critters got into it. His trash was all along the street on both sides. The neighbors were not happy. 2. Microwave Oven: A big chuck on the left side of the microwave oven door was damaged and missing. A new microwave had to be purchased, delivered and installed. 3. Refrigeration on Main Level; A big dent was put into the right door of the refrigerator. 4. Pavement: The Direct TV access code for purchases was engraved into the concrete pavement at door. A grinder had to be used to remove the code. 5. Carpet: Large stains on the carpet required a carpet cleaning company to be hired to address the carpet stains through out the cabin. Patrick tried to rent the cabin for a bachelor party by having a women, Megan, send the request to rent the cabin for his group. Patrick choose not to go through the VRBO payment system, he did not want to pay the VRBO's service fee and renters insurance fee. His reservation was setup for him to go through the VRBO system but he wanted to go through Megan's reservation # because I gave Megan a price break and she would not be paying the service fees. His friend that showed up early informed us that Patrick rented the cabin for a bachelor's party. Patrick called on Saturday requesting to order the UFC, we came to an agreement for it to be deduct from his deposit and we gave him the pass code. He called several times for the code on Saturday. On the last call requesting the pass code he said he would write it down. Most individual's would write it down on a piece of paper, not Patrick he engraving it into the pavement. Patrick has a record of trashing rental properties. He informed me that he did not receive and had trouble getting his deposits back from past rental property owners. Now I know why, and now looking back I understand why he had Megan try to reserve the cabin for him under her name. He is not someone you want to rent your property too.
