Mt. Lemmon cabin description

There is no place more quiet , cool and serene than Mt. Lemmon. Located just a short 45 minute drive from the valley of Tucson , AZ , Mt. Lemmon is 20 - 30 degrees cooler , receives 2 to 3 times more rain and is a world apart from the Sonoran desert below . Imagine sweltering in 100 + degree temps and just 45 minutes away being in the cool whispering pines where day time temperatures average in the 70' s and night time temps during the summer are in the 50' s.

The average temperature is 20 to 30 degrees cooler here than on the desert floor. ut lack any form of tree or foliage cover.

There are others for rent on Mt. Lemmon but ask before you rent. This may be the ONLY cabin that is located in a unburned area. Two wildfires in 2002 and 2005 burned much of the forest. Many cabinas have been rebuilt but few have any foliage to shelter them during the summer.

If being in the trees and sitting on a deck partially shaded from the glaring sun of Southern Arizona is important to you , this is your next vacation spot.

This cabin was constructed in 2002 and purchased new . I added a 940 square foot deck which wraps the whole upper floor. There was originally a covered deck with balcony on the upper floor , now there is a new open deck which extends that covered balcony space and brings outside life into the trees . It is the perfect place to spend a summer day in a hammock , invite some friends over for breakfast or relax after dinner before the summer storms roll in . Weddings and large family and group gatherings are welcomed in this special outdoor space. I host several open air concerts on this deck during the summer for 50- 75 people.

Once night time falls retreat to the interior of this hunting lodge style cabin to watch some favorite movies , read , play a board game or sleep with the sound of the wind whispering through the trees that surround the cabin .

On cooler nights, the house is warmed by a gas stove on the upper floor and a gas heater on the lower floor . There are three bathrooms, one on each floor. Two have showers and the upper floor features a Jacuzzi tub. With queen beds in each bedroom and sleeping area and one loft bedroom with a double bed and single , a single day bed in the living room along with a queen size convertible and cots , this cabin can accommodate your family and friends for a weekend or a week whatever your pleasure .

This is my private home and I have decorated it with personal belongings . I hope that you respect the fact that I am sharing my home with you and respect the decorations in the house as if they were your own.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2002

                      About the owner: I am a native Tucsonan who loves the mountains and the cool retreat that I have created in my cabin. I am a very active person and this cabin is located very near several excellent hiking trails.

                      Why the Owner Chose Mt. Lemmon:
                      Tucson is a very dry climate yet less than 1 hour away you are transported to 8000' elevation and temperatures which are substantially cooler than the valley floor .

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                      Quiet reading spots, comfy beds and great cabin for families and couples.
