vacation rental description

No pet fees! Central air conditioning! You want to get away from it all? Look no further for the right property to visit! The Dog House is a dog-friendly 2 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom home with a large wrap-around deck and a fenced in yard (4' chain link). You will see and enjoy the views from the deck - beautiful trees and ridges to see and the sky is usually amazing as well.

We are just 1/2 mile from the East Verde River if you want to go and play in the cool water. Otherwise, there are plenty of hiking trails around and the national forest right out our back yard! You won't see your neighbors, except the wildlife and perhaps Blue, the neighbor's dog who sometimes ambles over to say hello.

The house has a large great room complete with comfy furniture, and windows galore! The room is overlooked by the loft, which we've set up to use as a reading nook or game room. We've assembled a fairly good collection of board games to enjoy on a rainy afternoon or cold winter's night.

The kitchen is complete with all appliances, including coffee maker, microwave and dishwasher. We've stocked some basic spices as well as coffee, tea, and hot chocolate.

Wildlife sightings so far: bobcat, elk, white tail deer, raccoons, coyotes, rabbit. We've seen bear prints, but no bear yet!

We are licensed by and pay taxes to the State of Arizona for this business. We also donate 5% of our gross income to a local animal shelter. Holidays require longer stays.

traveler reviews for this payson house rental

Excellent Home and Property

Review submitted: January 27, 2014   Date of arrival: December 30, 2013

The Dog House is obviously a passion of the owners'. Beyond being spacious, clean, well-stocked, and tastefully decorated, The Dog House is loved. So much time and attention has been invested in making certain man's best friend would know he is king, that you might overlook all the "gadgets and gizmos" of the technological ilk that make the two legged guest very comfortable during their stay. Unbelievable. The dogs loved the freedom of the yard that didn't look like a yard, as well as the wrap around porch which they thoroughly enjoyed. I enjoyed the spaciousness, losing myself with a good book. We had no children with us, but kids would love sleeping in a sleeping bag in the loft. Although, my dogs were a little unnerved at first by the loft. It was too funny--they could see me but had trouble figuring out how to get up (or down) to join me. Kudos to the owners for their time, energy and effort, as well as the very accurate description and lovely photos.

Recommended for: age 55+, girls getaway, pet-friendly

Owners response: WOW! Thank you. I think I need to hire you to write all of our marketing for us. We do appreciate your stay with us and your wonderful comments. We hope you can come back for another getaway soon.

Wonderful time

Review submitted: January 27, 2014   Date of arrival: January 24, 2014

We absolutely loved our stay at The Dog House! It's very difficult for us to get away because our chocolate lab is now 13 years old and we just can't bare to leave him with sitters. To find such a lovely home that not only "allows" dogs, but goes out of their way to accommodate their guests and their dogs is truly a rare find. We were there to celebrate my 55th birthday, and just couldn't have chosen a nicer place to relax and enjoy ourselves.

We had a great time. Beautiful deck! We all spent alot of time enjoying everything around us. House was super comfy, clean, and warm. Great location for exploring.
Location, location, location. Nice to stay somewhere so nice that also allowed us to bring our "entire" family. (dogs!)
