Amazing Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5
As always we had a wonderful time at The Castle! There is so much for the kids outside that we can hardly get them inside to eat. We feel right at home every time we visit and will continue to do so for as long as we can. Michael and Karen are always a pleasure to deal with.

Thank you!!!

The "Castle" was fantastic. The accommodations easily fit our 10 people ranging in age from 6 thru 66. We enjoyed all amenities, including the outdoor games, BBQ, fire pit and hiking. The indoor fire stove was an excellent heat source and certainly added to the ambiance. The views are breath taking and the wrap around deck and outdoor seating areas were great. The indoor seating arrangements from dining to tv watching enabled all the family to participate or find a nook for alone time. This was one of the best renting experiences we had. The owners were very flexible and nice to deal with. We look forward to doing it again. We highly recommend this place for all ages.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5
We had 13 people in the cabin and everyone had a comfortable bed to sleep in. The construction of the house is wonderful, with personal touches everywhere. The outdoor accommodations are great, tons of room to just sit down and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. Hike is beautiful just behind the cabin, wonderful location. Overall, this has been the best experience that I have had renting a place for the family, I've never had a property look better in person than in the provided photos, it was truly a great experience as a whole, do not hesitate to book.

Christmas Tree Trip !!!

  • 5 of 5
We look forward to our annual Christmas tree trip every year. It has become a tradition for our family and friends and though the trek up to the Rim to find the perfect tree is the highlight of our trip, your home has become a welcoming and comforting retreat for all of us. This year we were able to enjoy all of the outdoor games on your terraced front yard ...ladder golf, horse shoes, bean bag toss...since there wasn't any snow in Payson. Yet, just a short drive away to our Christmas tree area there was a good 5" of the fluffy white stuff for us to enjoy. Couldn't ask for a better start to our holiday...thank you for opening your home to us ...we appreciate it.

great to get the family together

  • 5 of 5
Everyone had a great time from the two year old to the 78 year old grandma. The two year old mastered the stair very quickly and the six year old love the porch that went around the house. There was plenty of room for every one to have their privacy as well as hang out together. My son took his nephew hiking just around the property and they had a great time. We also hike the natural bridge which is a short drive away. I was very proud of myself when i made it to the bridge hadn't hiked in years. A little sore the next day but the beds were so comfortable that I hardly noticed. The kitchen was great, the men cooked so I didn't have to anything but supervise. We took this short vacation because my niece was getting married and it was very beautiful. The next time we would like to stay at least a week. I liked getting up in the morning and enjoying the cool air and the beautiful view from the porch. Not to mention the quietness of the morning. I think it was one of the most relaxing, exciting, and fun vacation I have had in a long time and very much needed. Next year we will have one more addition to the family and there will still be room for more in the castle. If I could give it more than 5 stars I would. The property owner were very accommodating and understanding of our needs. Thanks so much, Had a great time!!! Sorry the review took so long but it was back to the rush of life that I didn't miss at all when we were there.

Better than expected!

After reading multiple reviews, I settled on a King's Castle for our family's quick vacation during October break. We were not disappointed. The owners were fabulous to work with and the entire process from checkin to checkout was a breeze. We loved that the location was only an hour and a half from the East Valley of Phoenix and only 10 minutes from downtown Payson. This cabin has a prime location and we enjoyed eating and hanging out on the wrap around porches taking in the beautiful scenery and the fresh air. The kids loved the outdoor activities (ladder ball, Cornhole, horseshoes-we didn't use the outdoor fireplace) and we spent a lot of time exploring and hiking on the fascinating rock formations up the hill behind the cabin. When it rained, there was plenty to do indoors with Wi-Fi, Direct-TV, a movie collection, board games, air hockey, etc. The interior of the home is beautiful and tastefully decorated. It still has a new feel to everything and the owners have done a good job of maintaining it. Sleeping accommodations were very comfortable and the kitchen and family areas more than adequate. With a toddler, we appreciated the pack-n-play portable crib and high chair included. Since we were only there for a short while, we did not do much away from the cabin other than a grocery run to Walmart in Payson. Without a doubt we would consider returning and highly recommend the property to anyone looking for a nice place to stay that can sleep 10 comfortably.

From the Owner

My wife and I were looking for a 'cabin' in the woods for just the two of us and our family and as a home builder when we came upon this property I saw what was to become a place for not just us but for many more who would be able to enjoy what we have found.
