About Jenn Waltko

My husband and I own a small insurance agency here in Lakeside. We moved here from the valley a few years ago and LOVE living in the White Mountains. We have three grown children and one son-in-law (just waiting on the grand-kids!). We are avid hikers and mountain-bikers and try to enjoy our local trails as much as possible.

Why Jenn Waltko chose Lakeside

I grew up in the valley and spent summers coming up to visit my grandparents at the cabin. They purchased the cabin the year I was born! I remember my teasing my grandma that they purchased the cabin to celebrate my birth - she would just smile and say "okay". This cabin holds many special memories for generations of my family, including aunts, uncles, cousins and my children. It was my primary residence for a short while and recently completely renovated. I hope you enjoy the "memory room" in back with a little history on my grandparents and the cabin remodel. We also found some cool relics from the 1930's - 1950's when tearing out the bathroom walls. Probably hidden there since the 1960's!

What makes this cabin unique

We love sitting on the huge front porch. We have many deer in the neighborhood and love to feed the squirrels and birds. You can walk to the movies, many restaurants including Pinetop Brewing Co. Safeway is a 3 minute drive. However when you're sitting on the front porch, you feel you are miles from anywhere! After a fun filled day of hiking, biking, fishing, antiquing or just relaxing the Jacuzzi is a great way to spend the evening!

Cozy cabin in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

What a special cabin and property! It is in the perfect location...we felt hidden among the pines but also close to all the conveniences in town. The cabin is cozy and warm with family memorabilia showcasing love and memories made on site. Both adults and kids enjoyed the yard games and when we were ready, we finished the night with board games provided by the owners. We had a slight hiccup upon check-in however the owners were extremely prompt and attentive being sure to make everything right. I always knew I was in good hands. Thanks for sharing your property, we had a great time.

Nicely appointed cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time and really enjoyed the hot tub after being out and about during the day. The portable AC helped cool the downstairs when it was quite warm inside during the afternoon. The only negative is the loft was HOT and didn’t really cool to a comfortable level until well past bedtime (a small window AC unit would really help!)

I would definitely book this place again, but will probably wait until September next time.

Owner's Response: Hi Kim - Thank you for your nice review! This year has been uncharacteristically warm... I have been coming here my whole live and a full-timer for 5+ years. In the past it is only that warm in late June and when monsoons hit, we do not see the 80's at all. Thank you for the advice. Hope to have you back! Jenn

Charming Cabin in Quiet Setting

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this sweet cabin for a long summer weekend. The location is wonderful- a quiet neighborhood yet still near amenities. We loved the charm and family history of this cabin. There was a lot of room for everyone and the kids really enjoyed the upstairs space. Jenn was great to work with and she has every detail covered for a perfect stay. We all enjoyed the hot tub! We hope to stay here again in the future.

Very Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

I went with my daughter and 2 grandchildren. We all had a wonderful time.

My 7 year old grandson loved the horse shoes and corn hole game. Both grand children loved the hot well as the adults. The cabin was very neat and clean, just bring your clothes and toothbrush, and a few groceries and you will be set. The only thing I could suggest is maybe having a first aid kit. My grand daughter cut herself and needed a bandage and I had taken the first aid kit out of my trunk to make room for luggage. I loved my time there, I didn't want to come back home.
