  • Quiet, Newly Renovated

    "We enjoyed our time in the cabin, and found it to be very comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with pans, bowls and utensils as well as dishes, and the place was clean and the environment quiet. For anyone who looks this cabin up on google earth, it looks like it's next to another building - that's the detached garage. Mostly when you look out the window, all you can see is trees, and maybe another building way off in the distance between them. I wouldn't *quite* have called it the middle of nowhere, but certainly off the beaten track. I wouldn't parade around without clothes on the deck, for example, though I don't think we saw another person the whole weekend. The tile floor in the kitchen was quite cold in October, so I would recommend bringing some slippers or thick socks if you are going to sit at the table for very long (we played a lot of board games)."

  • Great Cabin, All the amenities, spotlessly clean.

    "Had a great time in this cabin, there was plenty of room and all the comforts of home in a wooded cooler climate. We were refugees from the heat in the valley. The place was clean, we left it as such according to the detailed instructions and got our deposit refunded in a timely manner. The were great people to work with and we would recommend this property to anyone looking for a weekend getaway or a weeks worth of snow fun."

  • August on the Lake...Perfect!

    "As always, Rainbow Lake does not disappoint. August brought cooler temps and quiet days up on the lake. Afternoon storms made for spectacular sunsets! Bob's home is clean, well organized, and very well equipped. Meal preparation in the kitchen overlooking the lake is not to be beat. The rental process is simple and Bob's thoroughness in answering any questions or issues that might arise is prompt and courteous. We will return. Barbara and Cary Tucson, AZ"

  • Excellent property with very attentive owners. Great attention to detail!

    "We stayed at this Forest Lakes property just after New Year with 2 other families. We had six adults and a slew of small children. This property had plenty of room and all of the necessities for a great family trip. There are not a great deal of pictures of the property but the house is beautiful, clean and the deck is to die for! Even though it was January, we spent so much time outside. The deck has a fireplace and several heaters and it is the perfect outdoor space nestled among the tall pines. The interior of the property has everything imaginable for a perfect weekend (games, toys, magazines, movies, books, utensils for cooking, spices, sleds). We look forward to returning to this property. It would be a great summer trip as well. The owner is available and helpful with any questions you have throughout the stay. Thanks to John and his family for opening their vacation home to us."

Best Time of Year to Visit Arizona Vacation Rentals

Arizona is a state that is known for its warm climate. Even in the winter months, you can enjoy warm sunshine almost every day. The north central part of Arizona is at an altitude of between 2,000 and 3,000 meters; because of this, seasonal temperatures are milder than in other parts of Arizona. This means that during the summertime, you can enjoy a wide variety of activities without feeling as though you will get scorched by the summer sun. You still need to have adequate sun protection of hats and sunscreen and make sure you drink plenty of water. Towards the end of summer, from July to mid-September, you can expect the occasional thunderstorm. The winter months are relatively short-lived, lasting only a month or two from November through December. Daytime temperatures can still be pleasantly warm but after the sun sets, the temperatures can plummet to below freezing. Ideally, you should dress in layers so you are not caught unprepared for the sudden temperature changes. Some snowfalls can occur in winter. Spring runs from January to April, and is one of the most pleasant seasons to visit. Fall season is also particularly beautiful as the turning leaves blend in with the red rock landscapes.
