vacation rental description

Just 15 min. from the rim and fishing at Woods Canyon Lake. Bring the kids and the dogs!

Enjoy the quiet elegance of this creekside home nestled among trees, woods, and stream in the hamlet of Christopher Creek. This special retreat is in the mountains 20 miles east of Payson, directly below the stunning Mogollon Rim vista. Less than a mile from the highway, the home is easy to access in all seasons, yet still perfect for those who enjoy quiet, wildlife, and beauty all around them. The hiking and fishing are outstanding in this forested area abounding with lakes, streams, and magnificent mountain views. Or you can enjoy the amenities of nearby Payson, with its antiques, museums, restaurants and shopping.

The home’s large back deck is directly next to the stream, making it a delightful area for eating, relaxing, and wildlife viewing, with many squirrels and birds lending their chatter to the burbling creek sounds. The rim has many hiking trails, and is a great area for cross country skiing. Or simply stay warm at this refreshing retreat and restore your spirit among the trees and sparkling water.

Inside the home awaits another kind of beauty: understated refinement rare to find in a mountain hideaway. The 1900 SF home has two master bedroom suites with private dressing areas and bathrooms, each with patio doors adjoining the 80 foot deck. There is a third central bathroom with shower for guests, next to the laundry and pantry. Cozy, private enough for two, yet able to sleep five, the home is large enough to entertain even more if desired.

*** Angler’s dream – Fish nearby Canyon Creek, best loved stream of Zane Grey, or other well stocked lakes within 30 min. distance.

Little Piece of Heaven

Review submitted: September 16, 2012   Date of arrival: September 10, 2012

The property was just as described and more spacious than the photos reflect. We felt very safe and slept with the arcadia doors open so we could hear the creek that runs along the back of property. When we arrived, Anita was there to greet us with freshly baked brownies. She is very friendly and was helpful in answering questions about where to go fishing and the surrounding area. We enjoyed our stay so much that we plan to return for another visit. We have already recommended this property to our family, friends and coworkers.

Great Place for the 4th of July!

Review submitted: July 15, 2014   Date of arrival: July 3, 2014

We had a wonderful time staying here over the 4th of July weekend. The Christopher Creek neighborhood does its own little golf cart parade through the streets. We enjoyed sitting at the end of the driveway and watching all the action. We did spend most of our time sitting on the deck watching all the squirrels and children playing in the creek. Having a full kitchen made meal planning very easy. This is a wonderful place to sit back and relax. Only a few mile from several different lakes as well. Will definitely visit again!

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, girls getaway, pet-friendly, sight seeing, romantic getaway

T&C from Scottsdale

Review submitted: June 28, 2014   Date of arrival: June 20, 2014

We so enjoyed our stay at Christopher Creek! It was everything we had hoped for. It was very quiet and peaceful. The deck on the back of the house runs along the creek and has a canopy of trees that are just beautiful. We spent many hours out there. The home itself had everything we needed - especially 2 recliners. That is usually T's biggest complaint when we go on vacation - nowhere to get your feet elevated at the end of the day. While the home is very private, it is only 20 minutes to Payson and all the amenities you might need. The neighbors were also very friendly and helpful. Thanks so much for letting us share your home!
