vacation rental description

Over a Mile off of RT 260, near the Town of Christopher Creek, this home isn't just close to the forest it's IN the forest!!  This property is about 20 miles east of Payson intersection of Rt87 / Rt260.

This two bedroom is right in the Tonto National Forest, the National Forest begins in the backyard!  

There are hundreds of miles of trails right out the back door, perfect for ATV, Horses or Hiking!  This is one of the most charming mountain areas in the state!

Wake-up in the master bedroom to a view out of the bedroom sliding glass door of the national forest.  A variety of wildlife to view including Elk, turkey, javelina and black bear along with others.

Enjoy the evenings around the campfire, setup in the backyard near the forest edge.  You can even try your luck at calling elk, just don't be surprised if one shows up to say hello!!  

Be aware there are conditions that the Forest Service will not allow fires or other activities depending on the weather and other conditions!  This information can be easily found by calling the forest service prior to your travel.

You like the idea of being into the forest but not too far away from civilization?  Well, there's a bar and restaurant within walking distance (The Double D)!  They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner! The bar is open at least until 9pm 7 days a week! Need some supplies?  The Bar also has a store attached to it!

The elevation is about 7,000', which relates to about 25-30 degrees cooler than the temperatures in the valley (phoenix areas).  In the summer months, you can expect an afternoon shower nearly every day which will normally drop the outside temps to around 70!  This is when phoenix is at 110+!  But don't worry, there's A/C in the "Cabin" as well for those extra-warm days!

The winter months, there's sledding hills nearby and often times enough snow for snow machines!

All in all, it's a great place to spend some mountain time.  It's a place to have your batteries recharged, kick-back and have some fun!

house rental amenities

This "cabin" is really a home and has all the normal amenties such as stove, oven, microwave, fridge, freezer.  All pots and pans, a good supply of spices too!

The master br has a King bed, the second bedroom has a bunk bed (2 singles) and a third single. 

Gas grill on the front porch for grilling.  Some campfire wood will be supplied, should you need more there are local firewood dealers in the small village, ask at the bar for more informaton.

Indoor bathroom and shower, of course!

Electric heat as well as a nice air-tight fireplace for heat.

A/C for those extra hot days although it's not normally needed.

This is rustic but with all the comforts of home!

activities and attractions in Payson Arizona

There simply is soooo much to do!  Right out the back door is the National Forest which means there is ample trails for hiking or ATVing.  There are ponds within a short distance that offer exceptional places for riding and target shooting.

There are times the forest service could close the forest to shooting, be sure to check this as part of your planning.  Forest closures occur from time to time when conditions are right for a forest fire.

Into hunting Arizona?  Everything you can hunt is here, just be sure to have the proper tags and times!  This area has been home to many trophy bull elk as well as state record sized turkey! Record Mule Deer have been taken in this area as well.  You can also expect to see Javelina, Black Bear, Coyote and occasionally a mountain lion.  Be sure not to leave small dogs unattended or leashed, while I have not heard of a dog being taken by one of these animals precaution needs to be taken.

Within a few minutes drive there is the Fish Hatchery...learn and visit millions of trout from hatchlings to ready to be released!  Tonto Creek offers great trout fishing as well!

Khols Ranch, just down the road offers horse back riding as well as a great steak house!  Take a ride into Payson (about 15 minutes) and find a well stocked fishing pond that the kids will surely have a great time!  The fishing pond is at the end of Main Street, just south of RT260 on 87.  North of 260 on 87 you will find Walmart, Home Depot, German Village and Town Parks which have public swimming.

There is plenty of shopping in Payson as well which includes many small shops as well as the larger ones such as Walmart and a good choice of grocery stores.

Dont want to ride into town for supplies?  The Double D has a mini-grocery store within walking distance from the cabin!
