About Brian and Lisa Herold
Brian and I visited Strawberry many years ago and fell in love with the area and weather. Both grew up in the Seattle area then moved to Surprise AZ on a whim back in 2002. Decided to escape heat and ended up in Strawberry. We built our forever home and want to share this great area with others.
Brian and Lisa Herold purchased this Studio in 2018
Why Brian and Lisa Herold chose Strawberry
The property is located on top of a hill surrounded by ponderosa pines and abundant wildlife.
What makes this Studio unique
We built this home knowing that we would be sharing this great area with others from the valley and farther places. The back yard is much like a Seattle landscape with the front yard left native. The Entrance to Emma's Loft is very private and extra care was taken to provide extra insulation for noise, heat and cooling. And our dog Ruckus loves the place.

Fantastic place to stay!!!
It was even better then the pictures were. So clean and had so much attention to detail. Comfortable bed and the decorations were fantastic! Such a well thought out use of the space.We loved being on the deck and seeing elk in the yard.
We will definitely be back!
Yea!!! So Happy you enjoyed the loft and got to see all the wildlife! Some guests have called that deck the " Birds Nest" . We enjoy hosting and do our best to make sure each guests has a comfortable, stress free stay. We look forward to having you both back soon.
Great place in Arizona's Rim Country!
Lisa & Brian are great hosts. Greeted us on arrival, explained how things were set up & helpful throughout our stay. Apt. is new, well-laid out & well-furnished with everything we needed. At 5,800Ft, in August we slept with open windows and a blanket! From our high balcony, on several evenings we watched wildlike, including elk, come take water 50 Ft. away.
The general area is beautiful, with some interesting history and beautiful scenery with a multitude of hiking trails. Also, plenty of good restaurants and watering holes nearby. A lovely place to be as active or serene as you choose.
Thank you for your nice review. It was a pleasure having you both here as our guests. And happy you were able to enjoy the cool nights and wonderful wildlife as well as getting your toys in the nearby lakes and reservoirs.
You guys were our Pioneers for a full months stay and we thank you for taking a chance on us as well as being kind to our AC. :)) We look forward to having you back.
Wonderful VRBO in Strawberry!
My husband and I recently enjoyed a long weekend at Emma’s Loft. The attention to detail and location makes for a quiet time to unwind and reconnect in the Pine/Strawberry area and close enough to amenities in Payson too. We enjoyed relaxing on the balcony in the mornings and evenings, listening and watching for birds and seeing wildlife too. Lisa and Brian have done an amazing job of providing everything you need and even more! We definitely have found our little piece of heaven to totally unplug.
Thank you so much for your nice review. So happy you both enjoyed the loft and surrounding area. Pine and Strawberry have a lot to offer from hikes to shopping for unusual or antique items. Not to mention all the different wildlife. We look forward to having you back
What a delight! This is a gem . . .
Can't wait to come back and see the seasons change at this fantastic property. Hosts Brian and Lisa greeted us when we arrived and seemed so genuinely interested in making sure we had the best possible stay. The loft is beautifully decorated, clean, and has everything you need no matter what time of year. Sitting up high in the pines, we felt like we were in the loveliest little treehouse. Ate out on the balcony a couple of nights and went into town for a great dinner at one of the restaurants recommended by our hosts. We really enjoyed talking with Brian and Lisa and truly appreciate all the hard work they do to maintain not only beautiful accommodations, but a fantastic backyard that guests and their pets are welcome to enjoy. The dogs were treated like kings, we couldn't get over how great everything worked out.
Thank you for your wonderful review. We are so happy to hear you all(including the pups) enjoyed your stay. We try to be around if needed but then like to give everyone their space. We look forward to having you all back!
Escape in the pines
We had a wonderful couple of days at Brian and Lisa’s. The loft is cute and cozy and has a great little deck to sit and enjoy the breeze and watch the elk go by!! It was great to be able to bring our dogs and the yard was fantastic for them to run around. We will definitely be back!
Thank you for your review...we are happy to hear you both enjoyed the tree top deck as well as other amenities. We look forward to having you back
Rare Gem in Strawberry Arizona
This was one of the best places we’ve ever stayed at. The hosts, Lisa and Brian have provided everything one needs to enjoy a carefree and comfortable vacation. We only wish we could have stayed longer.
We wish you could have stayed longer too. Thank you for your kind words we love hosting and meeting great people like the two of you. Come back again soon.
Lots of good hiking and mountain biking trails. Tonto Natural bridge is a must see. Pine offers many small mom and pop shops with unique items. Good restaurants and bars that offer live music on the weekends. Strawberry is a day trip away to Sedona. And the weather is unbeatable.
