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 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....

Beautiful clean cozy cabin!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was beautiful and very clean! The backyard was big and felt private despite being backed up against other lots. The cabin itself was on the end of a quiet dead end road. The owner was helpful and quick to respond to our questions. Would love to stay here again in the future!

Wonderful Cabin

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is beautifully decorated, just like a log cabin would be with extensive attention to detail. Everywhere you look is "cabin" decorated with no spared expense and everything you could possibly need. We walked the many close by paths with our dogs; they loved the big fenced in yard. We were close to everything but seemed so much further away as it was so quiet. We had our coffee every morning on the covered porched and watched the squirrels and birds. Great week away, thanks Robin.

Great Yard for Summer and Fall

  • 4 of 5

The cabin is cozy and well-appointed but the fenced-in lot is the largest positive at Little Bear. Children and dogs can play while the adults relax under the shade and beauty of the tall trees. The patio table and padded chairs are an added bonus for comfortable meals and snacks outdoors. We think families and groups of friends can consider this as their home away from home.

Wonderful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 3 nights here and it was just wonderful. Our sons and our dogs loved the large fenced yard! Very quiet and peaceful setting in the mountains.

The owner, Robin, is very polite and responded quickly to the few questions we had.

We will definitely stay here again!

Really lovely little cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this lovely little cabin. It is so fun to be in Pinetop and experience it from an authentic well-done log cabin. Very clean and efficient place with lovely appointments. The yard was large and very secure for the dogs. We enjoyed hiking in the area by day - and were glad to come back to relax at the cabin at night. Lovely stay in a lovely place.
