Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Vickie has owned this property since the early 90's when it was just a solar powered, cord style log shack. My family has built many memories through the years and enjoyed sharing the place with family and friends. After rebuilding in 2005, Vickie decided to share the small piece of heaven with other's who might appreciate the peace of this secluded mountain hide-away. It is our families hope that you leave here with some great memories of a splendid vacation or wedding and that those memories last a lifetime.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Very few places are available for private ownership in this area of Tonto Natl. Forest. It sits just under the Mogollon Rim at approx. 5500 foot above sea level so the climate is mild to moderate compared to Phoneix. The place sits next to Ellison Creek that flows year round as well as a fulyl stocked trout pond. The property is surrounded by tall pines and juniper's and the 52 mile Highline trail can be reached within a few hundred feet. Each time we go we see amazing wildlife: bobcat, eagles, wild turkeys, javalinas, rabbits, elk, deer, coyotes and SO much more!
