This is my second time staying in this house and I am already ready to plan the 3rd. I would recommend this house for a large group or multiple families. We took our young ones up there and we loved every minute of it. Everything is house is spectacular and just what you need for a visit. I would HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend you visit.

If you are looking for an amazing experience, this is the place to go. My husband's family and my family spent 5 days here. It was everything I had hoped. The pictures don't do it justice. Everyone had a place to go, always fun things to do. We caught fish, played volleyball, ran on the lawn, curled up by the fire and the Christmas tree to watch movies, fed 25 people Thanksgiving dinner. Had plenty of room and storage. For two family's staying together for the very first time, it was perfect! We are already planning on re-booking. Thank you Mark for everything! What a blessed experience!

Absolutely amazing!

We hosted our daughters wedding here and I can't say enough great things about this place. The accommodations were perfect for the 17 people who stayed here (we stayed Thurs-Mon) & plenty of parking for the guests. If you are looking for an outside wedding, THIS IS THE PLACE! We are still receiving compliments how beautiful the wedding was. Mark was very helpful and responded quickly with any questions we had about our stay. Great for a family reunion as well. Thank you Mark for making our stay very memorable. We look forward to staying here again.

I canont say enough AMAZING things about this house. We just had a family reunion, all in total 21 people. My family came from all over the country, we stayed for a week. First off we re-named the house "ELK LODGE" you will see them almost everyday on the property. Usually 3- 12. We could not have been more comfortable. Plenty of space to enjoy family game night, family dinner and hang out time. Also, plenty of places to go around a corner, roam the other side of the upstairs porch and have a little quite time away from the family noise. My husband and I enjoyed several hours in solitude on the hammock. The porch wraps around on 3 sides. Downstairs you have a large covered patio. All in total you probably have comfortable outdoor seating for 100, along with several nice outdoor tables to eat at.

We had one little three year old, 2 teenager, 3 in their 20's and the rest well above 40 -75. Lots of things to do, play pool, darts, tether ball and basket ball. Fishing in the pond and two lower tables perfect for game playing. The teenagers loved the downstairs TV room. It was their Private group hang out spot. The house was so big and comfortable I would find my older aunts and uncles napping on the comfy couch, sending e mails from the executive desk or watching all the cooking from the quiet little breakfast nook. Last but not least I booked the house, I'm a bit of a travel snob. The house surpassed my expectations for beauty, location and overall occomidations. Mark was great to work with. My family has been meeting every three years for reunions over the last 40 years. This was hands down the best spot. For the first time in my one was ready to go home.

Beautiful home with so much space!

We were very happy with our stay at this beautiful place. There was room for everyone in this very spacious log home. The property itself is gorgeous, green grass and a spring fed pond as well. We spotted numerous types of wildlife and the kids had a great time playing outside. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen and bar area were perfect for our group on our yearly spiritual retreat. We hope to return next year!

AMAZING wedding venue!

  • 5 of 5
We held our wedding ceremony and reception on the stunning, sprawling was perfect! The cabin is gorgeous, and accommodated many of our out-of-town guests and the bridal party comfortably. The common areas and bedrooms are spacious and even while getting ready for our ceremony the house didn't feel crowded at all...with 50 people prepping and dressing and decorating. The owner (Mark) was extremely accommodating for our many requests to make our day perfect. He was quick to respond to our emails and insisted that we call him if we had any questions/issues during our stay.

We absolutely LOVED our long wedding weekend, and cant wait to celebrate an anniversary or two up there.

From the Owner

When we set out to locate that ' special gathering place' for our large family we had a list of things we were looking for .First it had to be accessible to where we lived with a short drive from the Valley. It had to offer services that we would need, shopping, medical, entertainment and local culture. Next the property would have to be large and unique. I always wanted a property with private water rights, and a private pond. The last was a large grass lawn.With a number of our children living out of state the use of the property has become limited and we have decided to share it .

Activity and Interests

The 5 acre property connects to the Tonto National Forest approx. thousands of acres of trails and hikiing. Beautiful surrounding areas.

We appreciate the short one hour drive from our home to the clean air of Payson rated in the top 3 cities in the country . The beautiful walks in the surrounding areas and enjoying wildlife that comes onto the property in the evenings is so unique.
