This is a very special place! Located about 2 hours from Phoenix in the midst of the world's largest stand of towering Ponderosa Pines. Temperatures are 30-50 degrees cooler than Phoenix.
This one of a kind chalet style cabin has been beautifully remodeled with T&G knotty pine walls, beautiful juniper logs, fully equipped kitchen including custom knotty hickory cabinets, chiseled edge granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. Large great room/kitchen combination with dramatic 25' window wall, beamed ceilings and several trophy big game mounts. Great for getting together with a few friends or family members.
Two remodeled bedrooms with very comfortable queen beds downstairs. Both have large sliding glass doors overlooking the National Forest. Large loft with a queen bed, 2 twin beds and a futon and a 8' slider to a balcony with views of the forest.
Lots of room to park your trailer or RV. Ride your horse or ATV right from the property.
Bring your sweatshirt to enjoy your morning wake up on the patio or deck while listening to the sounds of nature. You'll see squirrels, blue jays, robbins and an occasional cardinal. Relax in the cool country and take in the fresh mountain air. It is so invigorating to your mind, body and soul! The stress wil melt away. You will be rejuvinated and ready to tackle your next challenge by the time you leave. Be sure to have a hanky ready because you just might get a little misty when its time to go! But have no worries because there can always be a 'next time' and there surely will. Thanks for visiting and come again soon.

About the owner: Charlie and I have been married for 31 years. We started camping up on the rim near Forest Lakes with our kids way back then! We always dreamed of having a cabin to go to - this is our dream come true! We hope you enjoy our cabin as much as we do.
Why the Owner Chose Forest Lakes: Forest Lakes is one of the highest points on the rim at an elevation of 7600 ft. This lends itself to cool summer days with an average temperature of 75-80 degrees. The evenings cool down even more for great cool mountain air sleeping. It is such an easy drive from Phoenix, most of the highway has been expanded to be a divided 4 lane highway. Take AZ260 East out of Payson approx 35 miles. From most parts of the valley less than 2 hours door to door. All the mountain activities and benefits with a much shorter drive to get there. Forest Lakes is a small community of 1 acre cabin sites so you can enjoy your own guests, not be right on top of your neighbors!
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: Peace, serenity and Cool Weather!
