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....

Great White Mountain Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and 2 dogs had a great time at the cabin and would definitely return. The fenced yard was a huge plus for us as our dogs are active and like to be outdoors. The yard was very spacious and a great place to relax and enjoy the weather and the pine trees. The cabin was very clean, well-furnished, comfortable, quiet and close to everything!

Quaint and tiny cabin

Cabin was smaller than imagined. Glad there were only 3 of us. Perfect size. Very clean with all amenities needed for our stay. Lovely huge yard and very quiet location at the end of the street.

Cabin is amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is a beautiful gem. I am so glad I came across it when I was looking at places for a girls getaway. The cabin exceeded my expectations. It was immaculate and cozy. It has everything you need. The yard is large and beautiful. I would recommend this amazing place to anyone looking for a home away from home.

Great Place to get away

  • 5 of 5

This was a great location for our ski weekend. Our little pups enjoyed being able to come with us, the yard is huge. Your close to everything, resort, restaurants, movie theater and still feel like your away from it all. The cabin is lovely and has all things you could possibly need.

Wonderful Cozy Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 days just after Christmas at the cabin. I brought my wife, teenage daughter and our two small doggies. Everyone had a great stay. The cabin was clean, cozy, and had all the creature comforts you would expect. Perfect for being able to bring our four-legged friends. They were safely enclosed within the fenced yard while they went out to do their business. Beautiful log home furnishings, nicely equipped kitchen with a great coffee maker too. We got two days of skiing in at Sunrise which was about a 35 minute ride away. The local movie theaters are just about a 2 minute drive. We will definately return to Little BearLog Cabin on our next trip to the White Mountains. Also enjoyed the local businesses Red Devil Restaurant and Krissies Ski Rentals. Thanks Robin!
