Property description

This gorgeous mountain home is located in the Santa Catalina Mountains located in the Coronado National Forest north of Tucson, Arizona. It is located in Mt. Lemmon which is 9,157 feet above sea-level and receives approximately 180 inches of snow annually. Summerhaven is the beautiful small town near the top of the mountain. This home is within walking distance to this town. It is a summer residence for some Tucson residents. It is near Ski Valley which is the southernmost ski destination in the US.

This beautiful home is two levels of spacious living. The views are breath taking and especially while sitting out on the beautiful stone patio under the star lit sky, among over 80 fruit trees. There is a built in fire pit located on the patio next to the built in BBQ grill and includes patio set. The kitchen is fully equipped for entertaining family and guests. This serene setting is always 45 degrees cooler in the summer than Tucson! Temperatures range anywhere from 60 to 75 degrees in the summer. There are many hiking trails, all of which we have information on located in the cabin for your enjoyment. Also located near this home is the incredible University of Arizona, Mt. Lemmon Sky Center. This SkyCenter presents programs all nights of the week and during the days in summer months. Information for reservations also available in the home. This program is an exceptional science learning facility!

Also located near this home is the Rose Canyon Lake and resort. This lake is surrounded by Pondersoa Pines and although this area burned during the devastating Aspen Fire of 2003, many of the larger trees survived. The Catalina Highway, also called the Mt. Lemmon Highway runs up the Santa Catalina Mountains, from the east of Tucson up to Summerhaven. Get your camera out for the ride up, there are plenty of stops along the way for stopping for breathtaking views and photos.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: Al is a native Tucsonan and Carolyn is originally from Minnesota and has lived in Tucson for over 35 years. We absolutely love the desert and the beautiful mountain life.

Why the Owner Chose Summerhaven, AZ, USA:
Al is a Tucson custom home builder and built our home on Mt. Lemmon originally in 2003. We had it finished about one year when the ASPEN fire took it along with about 350 other homes. Nothing was left except a small angel we had in our cabin and the tin roof. We immediately started the process and rebuilt the exact same cabin again! We loved the layout and did not change anything.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We enjoy the quiet, peaceful, serenity that is felt while up on the mountain. The air is fresh and the smell is clean. The birds sing and the days are quiet. We love to relax, prepare a wonderful meal, watch movies, catch up on our reading, hike and enjoy the quiet evenings while watching the beautiful star lit skies.
