With no humidity or no bugs, it is the best weather in the United States!
We know the importance of your 4 legged family member so we are pet-friendly, but beware Torreon does not allow fences so there is no containment.
The garage holds 2 cars and car rental & adult bikes are available. Great trails abound in surrounding state forests or walk and bike within the gated community. 5 minute WALKING distance to Clubhouse, Family Center, tennis, pool,hot tub, basketball, sand volleyball, fishing and Fitness Center. Two world class 18 Troon Golf courses, great restaurant & bar on site. There are riding trails behind Torreon on state lands, horse boarding facilities or arena and group horseback riding lessions.
What more could you ask for? We are in a fabulous location for both adults and children, beautiful setting, safe (24/7 roaming security),magnificent weather. Safeway grocery store is a 5 minute drive. Drive to Show Low (5 minutes) or Pinetop/Lakeside (20 minutes) for restaurants, shopping, antiquing. Come discover the White Mountains of Arizona and make everyone's summer memorable.
For winter guests, the Sunrise ski resort man-makes snow for a full season of skiing, snowboarding or snowmobiling. Sunrise is a 45 minute drive from our cabin, many rental stores along the way as well as at the base of the mountain. 4 wheel drive car is recommended.

We had a wonderful time at the "log palace", as a colleague who'd been there before rightly named the lodge. Pure luxury and lots of charm in a beautiful area.

Immediately, upon arrival, the owners of this exquisite log home, provided us with an unforgettable weekend vacation. The home is spacious, beautifully decorated, and well appointed with all the amenities needed for a relaxing, luxurious stay. Every room provided an opportunity for restful enjoyment. Whether cozy in front of the fireplace, enjoying deliciously prepared meals, including gourmet coffee, from the European inspired kitchen, having fun in the game/media room or taking in the spectacular views from the deck, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Although we were content with staying in and around this most spectacular home, we also had a great time exploring Arizona High Country. 36 holes at Torreon Golf Club, hiking, horseback riding, shopping and enjoying the local cuisine provided us with a memorable vacation and a desire to return.

My wife and I met my two brothers, their wives and our mother and father at this house for a 5 day Christmas vacation. We all traveled from different locations and had never visited this house or this town (Show Low) before so we were a bit nervous about what to expect. To summarize, we were all pleasantly surprised by the house and the local town. The owners were incredibly generous and helpful to ensure our stay would be a pleasant one. Their house lovely, well decorated, fully equipped and stocked with all the items one would need, very spacious and includes all the amenities you will need for a lengthy stay. I would highly recommend this house and we will be back to enjoy it once again. Dan K and Family

Owner response: Thank you King family for your review and taking such good care of my home. Making special memories of a white, Santa filled Christmas for your kids in our cabin is what we aim to provide. We do hope to see you again on the next even year, when your family gets together again. Best wishes to all!
This is a beautiful timberframed log cabin conveniently located in the beautiful Northern Arizona forest. Arrangements were simply made. We were provided for with every necessity. Our hosts were generous in their consideration and planning for our comfort and enjoyment.We are grateful to have had the opportunity to visit, .and would do so again.

Owner response: Thank you for your review. I do hope to see you again soon! Call me if you have dates in mind, since you were fabulous "paying guests", I'll do my best to accommodate you!
Great property for families, especially teenagers. This property is absolutely beautiful and spacious! With the game room and movie room, I didn't even know my 4 children were in the house at times. Those rooms were a saving grace with the amount of rain we experienced during our stay. Whether you want to play games, watch TV, share each other's company, or find a quiet place to read a book, it can be found here and even at the same time! If you like to cook, the kitchen is heaven. The owner took the time to ensure our needs and requests were met. She left maps, restaurant recommendations, etc. We had a great experience. We will definitely be back!

Wonderful place to spend our famly Christmas
What can we say? Wow! We have spent the last 10 years at different locations and this rates as one of the best. Lots of games of ping pong and pool and nights at the dining table playing games, made it a week we won't soon forget. Grandma's most favorite part: she has all her boys and grandkids together for the first time in years. Altogether we could not have picked a better place to spend this Christmas season. Plenty of room to get away and to get together! Snow appeared on Christmas Eve and the kids saw Santa Clause putting gifts under the tree and to say the least, all our wishes and dreams came true this Christmas 2012.

Paradise in the forest
Paradise in the forest
We wish many of our German friends had the opportunity to stay at this very special family loghome: we were surprised by the sheer size of it, by its rich equipment - each room has it's own specific style - and by the fantastic views over the forests of the Mogollon Rim and of the White Mountains in the distance. The spacious deck offers opportunities to spend one's time lazing in the sun, or if need be also in the shade. One can sit outside at a big pond or read inside in any of the comfortable armchairs in one of the sitting rooms. The kitchen is extremely well equipped and invites you to cook delicious meals. The whole property is very clean and well-maintained. The golf course is close by, just five minutes walk through the woods or along the paved road, and offers unlimited possibilities for a stroll also for non-golfers. We would both of us like to come back to this paradise in the forest as soon as possible.

Owner response: Thank you Gunter and Sonja, you are welcome back anytime !
We had a wonderful stay in this home. We were traveling with four children and they never ran out of things to do around the house. The entertainment system and pool table provided a lot of fun for visiting family members as well. The kitchen is fabulous and we enjoyed cooking daily and had many meals outside on the deck. The owner was extremely helpful, friendly and always accessible.

Owner response: Thank you so much for taking the time to review the home. I really enjoyed meeting you and your beautiful children. We left the beanie babies lined up in Kelsey's room for a couple of months, it was so cute. Best wishes for a safe and healthy stay in Russia!
The property was beautiful, completely well stocked with everything we could imagine, and very comfortable for our party of 9. The owners were wonderful to deal with and helpful in every way. Our expectations were high because of the beautiful photos and description, but our expectations were exceeded by this home.

Owner response: Thank you for your review. I am still learning the site and posted a response to a review from my American family living in Russia to your review... Sorry for the confusion. I'm so happy you and your family had a chance to celebrate your husband's 73 birthday in style!
Magical mountain retreat!
Magical mountain retreat!
I've vacationed in a lot of lovely places in my 56 years, but this stay rises to the top of my list! Our extended family was lucky enough to trip upon this opportunity and will certainly be back. Although I got a kick out of referring to it as 'the log mansion', the place could not have been more intimate, cozy and inviting. The home is beautifully appointed and cared for, from a state of the art kitchen, game and media rooms to absolutely charming bedrooms, all with en suite bathrooms. While we stayed there during the winter season (great for skiing by the way!!), I can only imagine the good time to be had during the summer with swimming, hiking, horseback riding etc. We were also pleased by Show Low's proximity to Tucson. the Petrified Forest, and Meteor Crater park for day trips with the Grand Canyon and Canyon DeChelly easily doable with a few overnights. There's just so much natural beauty in this part of the world, it's an absolute bucket list reservation to make.
