Grand Lodge review...certainly was Feb 2009
Grand Lodge review...certainly was Feb 2009
Place was outstanding...wonderfully furnished. With every turn a pat on the eye was in waiting. Paintings, antiques much of it furniture. Just a place to sit back and relax. Nothing was spared in design or furnishings...right down to the heated slate floors and towell warmers. Cozy yet still open and certainly grand. My group of ten hope to return again and again. A slight hitch in the beginning but the customer service was exellent in that the problem was corrected within the hour with little inconvience to my group, things happen. The dinning room seats ten comfortably...Sauna is listed but only saw a steam fixture in the one master shower...did not see jet powered tubs either. But if anything was wrong it was certainly overcome by the beauty of the Lodge and its location. A lot of good energy has run through this place and you can tell the moment you walk it. You will not be disapointed with your choice and if you are then you are a hard to please person and should probably stay home. Great for children but to nice for those not reared properly. Plenty of games to place...computer hookups...a georgeous pool table in an upstairs gaming room. The fireplaces through out are great in the winter...they are lit with gas but are wood burning...no hassle in starting fires AT all. Might bring some larger industrial size cookware for groups etc. there are some of course but if you love to cook you might bring your favorite. My group is used to the finer things in life for certain and find this place to be way, way to much for the average and hope to come back. The pleasure would certainly be ours.

Manager response: We are always available by phone to make sure our guests have the best stay possible. We updated our amenities list to be accurate. To clarify, we have two tubs with no jets, and a steam bath shower, not a sauna. It gives us great joy to share our special place with others. We love your reviews!

Remarkable architecture, gorgeous setting, the luxuries of a fine hotel (immaculate) combined with the comforts of home. Great place for a group gathering. Easy to find. Very quiet neighborhood. All contact with owners was prompt and professional. Once you have filled the fridge (cupboards are stocked with many staples, cook and service ware are plentiful) ) you won't want to leave! If you do, enjoy a fine meal at Bocado. Hit Happy Hour at Charlie Clark's. Walk the Rim Trail. But mostly enjoy the peaceful beauty and comfort of this special home!

Our family rented this home to spend time during the holiday and we were all blown away with how beautiful this home is. The description of the cabin was accurate and we had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. We found the property to be clean and well maintained, and the owners were available by phone if there were any issues. The bedrooms are roomy and cozy, and the living area was very spacious. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed to help cook some wonderful meals. I especially liked the food warmer, which helped to keep our food warm while we cooked the rest of the the meal. The dining room and table was large enough to have all of us enjoy our meals together. We enjoyed playing pool in the upper floor while listening to good music. The bathrooms are roomy and the tub was perfect to bathe our twin grandsons in. The back deck is large, we enjoyed our morning coffee while enjoying the view of the pinetrees and listening to the birds singing. Everything we needed was close by, Safeway and Walmart, to purchase what we needed. We did not eat out, although there were many restarurants close by. The home is beautifully decorated which brings added charm to it. There is also a great selection of books to read, and many board games and puzzles to play with. I would certainly recommend this property to friends, we loved staying here, and hope to return again someday.

Our stay at the cabin was fantastic overall. We had ample space for our extended family (12), ages 8-60+. We felt very much at home there, especially as it was decorated for the holidays! We enjoyed cooking some wonderful meals, with everything you could wish for in a kitchen. All drawers were labeled, so it was easy to locate any needed item. There were a couple of minor things - needed snow removal from the driveway, and firewood supply was low. Since we arrived on a Friday afternoon, there was no one at the office number and I did not have Valerie's cell phone with me. It would be helpful if that was added to the reference sheet in the cabin. Those things were minor, and we enjoyed the house tremendously.

Manager response: It is always wonderful to share the cabin with those who appreciate its warmth and beauty. We have handcrafted this home to welcome our family and guests as an authentic log cabin forest get-away. We strive to provide everything a person or group of people would need for their stay. During the winter it is difficult to predict the snow situation, but thankfully we have a snow plow crew who is on call to clear our driveway upon the request of us, the owners, or the guests if they call. Thank you for staying with us!
Peaceful Paradise! This cabin is perfect. Amazing sunset views from the cabin's back deck. The interior is wonderfully decorated and cozy. Very spacious with many beds and a large dining area. Living room has many seating places. There's a pool table on the upper floor. If you are a reader you will be in paradise iwth all the books in this cabin. The bathrooms are great and the whole place is squeeky clean! Highly recommend.

Manager response: I will pass these comments on to my mother, the architect/designer of the cabin, that her design dream is a reality that is being enjoyed by many others now :)
This cabin is incredible! The pictures don't do it justice, we were absolutely AMAZED when we walked in the door. It really is like a storybook chalet. The views from every room are great. The appliances in the kitchen are top of the line. It was VERY clean. I wouldn't rent anywhere else ever again when I am in Pinetop.

Year Purchased: 2000
About: I am an architect and general contractor with a background in forestry and working at national parks in my younger years. The Inns at El RANCHO MERLITA in Tucson, Arizona are one of my many projects. My favorite activities are hiking, skiing, hunting, cooking, designing, building, and playing with my family and grandchildren. We are 5th generation natives from Arizona and love the White Mountains.
My husband's family ranched in the rim country in the early 1900s. We've had a place in the Pinetop area through many generations. Our location overlooks reservation to the south keeping us close to wilderness area. At 7,000 feet in elevation, it is a great place to be year round. Winter skiing in 1/2 hour away, fishing even closer, and summers are heavenly.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Our views are pristine and private. We love to walk a wonderful hour loop that winds through rural and developed areas. Here's a quote from my youngest daughter, Valerie, 'This cabin was designed and built by my mother, an architect. It is her dream cabin. She created the design and supervised the construction through every step ensuring all the details meet her high standards. She is also responsible for decorating the cabin to give it that touch of European magic, as if you are in a warm chalet in the alps.'
