About Robin Riker

Born and raised in Colorado I learned to water and snow ski, fish, hunt and camp out at an early age. When my career brought me to Arizona I continued those activities in the beautiful White Mountains.

Robin Riker purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Robin Riker chose Pinetop-Lakeside

My parents came to live with me from Colorado in the Phoenix area in 2000. During the summer they would park their motor home in the White Mountains to get out of the heat. The limited space in the motor home made it cramped during summer visits and was not an option for winter visits. So began the search for a real log cabin!

What makes this cabin unique

Having the security of a hospital close by for my aging parents and a regional airport for easy access were important factors in choosing the Pinetop/Lakeside area. Convenient access to skiing, fishing and hunting enabled me to pursue my interests. The bonus was getting all the extras; casino, shopping, movie and live theater, night life, restaurants and special events year round.

My parents enjoyed the cabin as their summer home and parked their 34 foot motor home for guests next to the open paved patio. After 11 years my parents moved back to Colorado to live with one of my sisters and Little Bear Log Cabin became a vacation rental in late August 2011 with the first guest booking for Labor Day Weekend. Sharing Little Bear Log Cabin with others restores it purpose now that my parents have moved away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our second stay at Little Bear and once again found it to be totally delightful. This time I stayed back at the cabin and did crafts while the boys ventured off to the Run To The Pines Car Show which was only 15 minutes away. Such a cozy place and so well organized with just about everything you could ask for in a getaway vacation.



I then decided it was time for some exercise and ventured out to take a good walk and found the surrounding scenery so beautiful from fields of beautiful wild flowers to seeing someones corral of horses - so much beauty out there in Pinetop to enjoy.



The owner is so easy to communicate with and so very well organized that I even asked for what system and paperwork she uses to use on my own VRBO property on the East Coast.



Great place to stay with a very nice owner! Thank you again for a wonderful weekend....

Enjoyed it so much the first time, booked it again 2 months later!

  • 5 of 5

Escaped the Phoenix heat for a few days with the dogs. Everything was great!! The cabin was clean, comfortable and well-stocked. Both times I've booked, Robin has been very responsive and easy to work with. I will definitely be back!!

Cosy cabin is more than expected

  • 5 of 5

This is truly a great vacation experience in the Pines. This "cabin" has everything and is close to Rainbow Lake and all the restaurants. I would recommend it to all my friends. Thanks Robin for all your hospitality.

Great Little Spot

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is comfortable and well maintained. Robin was super to work with and obviously very meticulous about her property. She has installed some beautiful summer hanging floral baskets out front that add to the curb appeal. She has also cornered the market on bear décor items! Our dog loved hanging out on the porch and watching the squirrels and the yard was well fenced. Thanks Robin!

Already looking forward to our next trip....

  • 5 of 5

My sons first impression as we pulled up was we are NEVER leaving!! Next we started unloading and put the dogs in the very large enclosed back yard. Robin decorated the yard with beautiful hanging baskets and lots of cabin decor. Next I heard no, we are Never leaving!! The dogs loved the large open space for them. Every morning they looked forward to going out and looking up to see the squirrels. Once we got in side it was just as beautiful as the photos Robin posted. It was now me thinking I Never want to leave. The cabin is cozy and the beds are so comfortable. They are games, puzzles, horseshoes (loved that) and more. On the kitchen table you will find two very helpful binders. Everything from restaurants, stores to shop, day trips and more. I recommend the Burley Bear. We loved our stay and will be back. Thank you...

Owners pride shines through!!!

  • 5 of 5

Four adults recently stayed at this beautifully decorated cabin with our 2 dogs. From the moment we drove up, we could feel the pride put into the cabin and amenities for making our stay as perfect as possible. The cabin was well stocked with everything we needed indoors and out!!! We look forward to relaxing on our next stay here.

WOW!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay, the flower baskets are amazing and the cabin is perfect! The fenced yard was great for our fur babies, they loved to chase the squirrels (never caught any). The fireplace was used for the cold nights and very romantic. Although there was air conditioning and heating we didn't it use them but good to know for hotter days and winter. We hiked on several nearby trails with our dogs and everything we needed was very close by. Robin was wonderful to work with, very informative and helpful. We have already reserved another stay! Thanks Robin for sharing the cabin giving us the perfect get-away. See you soon!
