Comments by recent guests:

"This was the best cabin rental we have ever experienced!! Fabulous view, great accommodations and everything needed to make for a cozy home away from home. Everything from our initial contact with Jeff and Karen to the comfort and accommodations in the cabin, to the winter wonderland we got to experience made this an exceptional vacation trip." -- Tim & Diane Piganelli, Phoenix, AZ

"The cabin was beyond our expectations! Beautiful view and the layout of the cabin was perfect -- all the amenities. Everything was perfect -- we loved our stay. The setting was very much like home. The environment was peaceful and relaxing -- very isolated and private. Thank you for providing a wonderful experience for our family." -- Cande Gutierrez, Chandler, AZ

"Your home is truly a retreat in Paradise. It is far enough from town to have the comfort of seclusion, yet close enough to jump in the car for a quick run to the grocery. We very much appreciated that our 2 dogs were as welcomed into your home as we were. Their favorite spot in the house was laying in front of the fireplace. Ours was sitting on the couch and basking in the glorious picture window view. I've never before stayed in a rental where I felt as comfortable as I did at Elk Ridge Retreat. Your home is so warm and inviting. It was the perfect holiday for us. We will be back." -- Susan de Christofaro, Los Angeles, CA

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a truly amazing time and can't wait to come back again. The cain is so cozy and lovely, and the scenery is by far the best in the area. We can't thank Jeff and Karen enough for their hospitality. The s'mores kit and fresh eggs were such a fun and entertaining twist. We'll recommend this to ALL of our friends! Marc and Erin

Great Getaway Experience in Show Low

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I recently stayed at this cabin with our two dogs and another family of four just to get away from Phoenix and enjoy cooler weather. The cabin was even better than expected, as was the weather since we got to enjoy Show Low's first snowfall of the season! Everything we could possibly want or need was graciously provided by the owners, including even a bucket of goodies for making s'mores (which we did!). They even had the fire going for us when we arrived, making the cabin nice and cozy as the temperatures dropped down to a chilly 18 degrees outside. Our dogs thoroughly loved having a fenced-in backyard where they could play in snow for the first time. And all of us enjoyed the boardgames, the firepit, and just relaxing. If/when we return to Show Low, we hope to stay here again. The cabin is perfect for any season.

Little Bit of Heaven

  • 5 of 5
As Phoenix Valley dwellers, we were looking for a location to escape the summer heat and we found it and more. We found a home away from home and have plans in place to return next summer. Elk Ridge is truly a retreat with a relaxing and spectacular view from the front deck. From the moment you walk through the door into this spotlessly clean and well appointed cabin, you know you are in for a treat. Our two shepherds loved the fenced, grassed and shady backyard which backs up to the Sitgreaves Forest. 60 degree mornings and 80 degree days made for delightful walks. Close-by towns of Lakeside, Pinetop, Taylor/Snowflake and Springerville, made for wonderful outings and an opportunity to enjoy small town friendliness and some great food. Java Blues in Springerville, Darbi's and Charlie Clark's in Pinetop, Fiesta Mexicana, Branding Iron Steakhouse, Cafe Bocado and Torrean Grill in Show Low are all great tasting experiences. Hiking, using a 4 wheel drive vehicle or an ATV will bring you to back trails and breath-taking views with many opportunities to view antelope, elk and wild fowl. Jeff and Karen kept us supplied with scrumptious fresh eggs and veggies right out of the garden. They can't do enough to make you comfy. You can choose to be as active as you wish or just curl up with a good book or video from their well stocked cabin library. Yes, they have thought of it all...including the Smores bucket and fire pit our grandson just loved. Go and enjoy! You will not be disappointed.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
What a prefect stay! You have nothing to worry about if you rent from Karen and Jeff. They were extremely hospitable and friendly, and they have the house stocked with everything you could possibly need. You truly only need to bring food! Everything was spotless, and it was so relaxing to just sit on the front deck overlooking the countryside. The backyard also had a very nice deck and grassy area, and we had a lot of fun doing bar-b-que every night. Thanks for everything!

Wonderful retreat!

  • 5 of 5
My family enjoyed our week getaway at your retreat! Our 2 jack russells enjoyed playing ball in the lush back yard. My husband and daughter played horseshoes, played catch and tossed a frisbee around on the 5 acre property. Beautiful mornings and spectacular sunsets were enjoyed each and every day. The cabin provided us with every amenity and was very well maintained. Fishing, golfing, hiking and shopping kept us busy every day, and the dogs enjoyed their walks around the neighborhood as well as meeting the retreat's four-legged mascots! We will definitely come back!

Wonderful cabin - couldn't have asked for more!

If I could rate this with 10 stars, I would!!

We had the great pleasure of staying at the Elk Ridge Retreat over Christmas this year and couldn't have been more pleased with our experience. First, the owners Jeff and Karen are incredibly hospitable and accommodating. When we arrived, the gas fireplace was on, music was playing, the heat had already been turned on, and they had left a s'mores making kit for us, as well as a dozen farm fresh eggs in the fridge.

The cabin is beautifully decorated, with three very comfortable rooms, a large kitchen and dining area, and a large living room. There are also two nice bathrooms, one connected to the master. There are extra blankets throughout the home and the kitchen is fully stocked, so don't worry about bringing up your own cooking tools, pots, etc. Additionally, there is a gas fireplace, a large flat screen TV, and a surround sound speaker system!

Cleanliness is SO important in a rental property, and this cabin didn't disappoint. It was clean from top to bottom - you can tell that Jeff and Karen take a lot of pride in this great place.

The cabin sits on a huge lot, which is great for pets or kids who want to explore without going too far away. They've also provided a large selection of area maps, nature hike information, and articles on activities in Northern Arizona. Again, going out of their way to ensure that guests make the most of their stay. The cabin is located about 8-10 mins outside of Show Low, so you're close enough to town if you need groceries or a quick bite to eat, but still feel like you're outside of the bustle and traffic. Also, there is a fire pit area outside, which offers an opportunity to sit out and enjoy the clear view of the nightly stars.

We've rented several cabins in the area before and will ALWAYS go back to this one - we were sad when we had to leave! Thanks, Jeff and Karen!
