Hill Top Cabin - 5 Acre Retreat
Payson Arizona

Beautiful Retreat

  • 5 of 5
The location, views, serenity and entertainment was second to none. The days slipped away in hikes, bike riding, BBQ's, Corn Hole, Ping Pong and Dancing...What a beautiful place to get away and clear the mind. I'll be back

Spectacular property!

  • 5 of 5
Wow! Everything we wanted and then some. Beautiful views, well supplied - I wish we had waited to buy groceries until we got there. "Stocked pantry" was an understatement! Everything from TP to shampoo, even enough coffee to take care of the first morning if we had not brought supplies! Loved the huge table connected to the sink, so whoever had kp duty was still connected to the action, and able to enjoy the wonderful views. The huge frig held all our supplies for the week with room to spare. The double ovens made cooking for 19 easier. Lots of counter space so everyone could help (or watch)! The large outdoor grill was great, too. Even had a small fire and s'mores one night before the no fire warnings were issued. Enjoyed coffee on the deck with the sunrises and drinks in the hammock for the sunsets. The grandchildren chased lizards (no snakes, thank you), played video games, basketball, tennis, dodgeball, hiked - did not hear any complaints of what can we do! Great that we could continue the outside play in the cooler evening with all the tennis court lights. The beds were super comfortable. Plenty of room to spread out - girls played Barbies in the gazebo while the boys were chasing lizards and playing ball. Even the outside was open enough that we could watch the kids unobtrusively. Plenty of room to gather in one place when we wanted. Ate dinner on the multiple tables outside in the evening. Enjoyed shopping in Payson. Visited several national monuments and the state park at Tonto Natural Bridge was a great hike for all. Books on hiking trails and similar options were even provided! Everything was super clean, even all of the patios and decks. When we had a minor plumbing issue it was resolved promptly. Friendly neighbor and his dogs visited daily - just checking to see if we were ok. The laundry room was a big hit with my Marine son-in-law and father of 8 who washed clothes every night - TWO washing machines AND TWO dryers. That and the shower big enough to get multiple boys in at the same time - two items added to their wish list for their home! We definitely want to return!

Great Getaway House!

  • 5 of 5
I experienced the house as part of a group of 5 couples and 5 kids (all under 3) staying for a long weekend of hanging out, and the grounds were great. Even with all the people we had, we never felt cramped. The house is extremely open, so even if you're in the kitchen preparing a meal, you can still be part of the action next to one of the living rooms, or have people at the awesome table. There were plenty of spaces around the house for groups to congregate and talk/hang out/play games. The variety of games was fantastic! Indoor games in the basement, and the pool pong in that garage, plus the outdoor tennis and basketball. wow! The courts were especially good for young ones (considering you can kindly fence their outdoor play). Additionally, the hammock was a lovely spot. The only warning for paranoid parents is that there are two sets of stairs- so parent supervision required for those little ones who like to explore! Overall, a fantastic find!

wonderful getaway house!

  • 5 of 5
My family (husband and 2-year old) just spent the weekend at this wonderful place with 8 other adults and 4 other babies--and it was wonderful! The inside had everything we would need-- from a stocked fridge and cabinent, to plenty of towels in the bathrooms, to games and movies in the basement. The outside was even better with a tennis/basketball court, plenty of games, and great places to walk and run. You feel secluded, but having a major grocery store just a mile away was ideal. I would HIGHLY recommend this house to everyone! And to top it off, the owners were SO accomodating, gracious and welcoming. Definitely coming back next year!

You DO NOT want to miss this one, trust me!!

We saw the pictures here and thought this place looked amazing. The crazy thing is, the pictures don't even do it justice. If you want a relaxing private retreat, this place has it all.

-fully stocked kitchen- this is not your typical rental with junky kitchen tools, everything is nice and works excellent.
-the grill-you can't beat grilling outside with that view
-the stars at night- they were incredible!
-in ground fire pit!!
-all the games you can dream of-pool, ping pong, bocce ball, and many more
-lighted tennis court, seriously? That was awesome!
-nice flat screen tvs with all the channels
-nice fireplace in living room, perfect for relaxing in the mornings with the great views
-the house really seemed to have everything, it was like we were staying at our friend's house and he just left us the keys and said have fun
-everything is labeled in the house (light switches, etc- it makes it really user friendly)
-the house is huge!
-great owner!!, he was very accommodating and helpful through every step of the process!
-We DEFINITELY plan on staying here again!

I would HIGHLY recommend this place to anyone looking for a great house in Arizona. Make this your vacation home and you won't regret it! I feel like I should do advertisements for this place because we liked it so much.

I am already dreaming about when I can make it back! :)
