Property description

This beautifully decorated 4,000+ square foot custom cabin is perfect for your family vacation. Located in a gated community, it comes completely furnished and is stocked with all the amenities you will need.

Relax on the large back deck overlooking the lake, nap in the hammock, play croquet on the manicured lawn, fish off the private dock or play tennis on the courts at the end of the block. Two kayaks and a canoe with electric motor and paddles are available during summer months. This spacious cabin is only minutes from all activities including hiking, fishing, boating, horseback riding, antiquing, casino, dining and much more. Sunrise Ski Resort is approximately 45 minutes away. There are plenty of family games and kid toys to keep your family busy, including a pool/game table in the bunk room and sleds or bikes for your use in the garage.

The cabin can comfortably sleep 14 in beds: one king in the master (2 people), one queen in bedroom #2 (2 people), one queen in bedroom #3 (2 people), one queen in bedroom #4 (2 people), and 3 twin/twin bunks (6 people/kids) in the bunk room/playroom. Each bedroom has its own private bathroom and cable tv. The bunk room has a 1/2 bath.

The family room has cable TV, a DVD player, a VCR and surround sound. There is a DVD library downstairs and a VHS kid's library upstairs. For unlimited local calls, there is a telephone and fax machine. Long distance calls can only be made with your personal calling card. Free computer usage with cable modem and internet w/wireless capability!

Air conditioning is available during summer if needed, though it's not likely that you will. Summer highs 75 to 88 degrees with night-time lows in 40s and 50s. Whole house fans cool the cabin down in a matter of minutes as the temperatures drop at the end of the day.

In addition to centralized heating, two wood-burning fireplaces in the main living areas and a gas fireplace in the master bedroom provide warmth and enjoyment during the cold winter months. Imagine relaxing in front of a roaring fire after a day on the slopes.

This is our private family cabin. We rent our home with the expectation that it will be cared for as if you were a guest.

The Shores at Rainbow Lake is a gated community in Lakeside, Arizona on the eastern shore of Rainbow Lake. The Shores at Rainbow Lake Home Owners Association was founded in 1986 and now consists of 121 single family homes and 24 townhouse residences.

Sixty-one of the Shores lots have water frontage on Rainbow Lake which is approximately 110 acres.

The community has three boat docks that provide access to Rainbow Lake. There are also two tennis courts, one pickleball and one basketball court available for the association members and their guests.

The the main entry to the Shores is located just south of White Mountain Blvd. (Hwy260) and Neils Hansen Lane in Lakeside, Arizona.

Situated in the largest stand of Ponderosa Pines in the world, Pinetop-Lakeside offers visitors a cool alpine retreat in the heart of the White Mountains. Incorporated in 1984, the town of Pinetop-Lakeside sits at an elevation of 7200 feet. Its year-round population of 4,055 jumps to 35,000 in the summer months, as the mountain opens to seasonal visitors.

Sunrise Park Resort is a recreational paradise offering a wide range of fun and excitement. In winter, the three mountains offer 65 runs and adventure for skiers or boarders of any level. There is also cross country ski trails, sledding and a tubing area.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Our family cabin is host to three generations: grandparents, five grown children plus spouses and eight grandchildren

Why the Owner Chose Pinetop-Lakeside:
We have vacationed in Pinetop since the 70's, when we owned a small A-frame in the pines. As the family grew to 19 people and 7 dogs, we needed a larger cabin in which to gather. We love the laid-back and friendly attitude of the White Mountains.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Our cabin allows us a place we can all gather and relax, yet not be on top of each other. Our favorite activities are fishing and kayaking on the lake during the summer. The kids love to play tennis and the courts are two doors down. In evenings, we play Scrabble, and Rummikube in the loft or watch family movies with popcorn and surround sound. Sledding and skiing are favorite winter activities but we also love building snow forts in the front yard. The dads like to cook - fortunately the kitchen is well-stocked and large enough to accommodate all of them. Although the cabin is convenient to all that Pinetop has to offer, it really is just a great place to hang out with family and friends!
