About The Owner

Parents of 8 children and 24 grandkids.

Why The Owner chose Capital Territory & High Country

When we set out to locate that ' special gathering place' for our large family we had a list of things we were looking for .First it had to be accessible to where we lived with a short drive from the Valley. It had to offer services that we would need, shopping, medical, entertainment and local culture. Next the property would have to be large and unique. I always wanted a property with private water rights, and a private pond. The last was a large grass lawn.

What makes this cabin unique

We appreciate the short one hour drive from the Phoenix area to the clean air of Payson, rated in the top 3 cities in the country for its clean air . The beautiful walks in the surrounding areas and enjoying wildlife that comes onto the property in the evenings is so unique.

Pros: The property is very beautiful. Plenty of parking which helps when you have a big group as we did. Easy access in and out and not far from Payson or Star Valley if you need any supplies. All the bedrooms are well appointed and very large with plenty of closet space. The kitchens are well equipped with all the needed utensils. All you need is you food and drink. Very nice down stairs with a very user friendly wet bar and kitchen. Access out to the deck and down stairs patio is very easy. Nice views of the green grassy yard out front and the small pond. Early morning elk visits and cool evening temps made it nice for sitting on the deck and relaxing. Cons: The first thing we found that the house needs some TLC. It is an older place, well built, but some attention to some things would make this a 5 star. There was no list or information on site to help with some of the things we wanted to use or view. We never found a way to turn on the fountain in the pond. In the picture it looks beautiful and my guests would have liked to see it but info on how to turn it on. I really didn't want to bother the owner with some of these things but an information leaflet would be very helpful. The pool table in the garage had 2-3 tears in it about 4 inches long so playing a game was trying at best. Several guests wanted to listen to some music but there is no stereo on site so bring you own radio or I-pod. All but 2 TVs in the house never got working. Several people tried with no success. No information on site on house to turn on the fireplaces which there are several. Again, an information leaflet is really need here. In the age of electric technology today almost all areas have WI-FI. This place does but again, no info on what the password was. Called the owner on this one but never got a response until 2 days later and it was an email to my house. I had requested a text. Mark was very accommodating so I don't want you to get the wrong idea that he was just ignoring me. He may have not gotten my text right away or was busy. Some of the doors in the house need adjusting as they didn't close or open well. It really took some pulling to get them open or closed. Outdoor lighting at night was minimal and where there was lighting half the bulbs didn't work.

All in all is was a great time and I would stay again. This was very relaxing or fun which ever you wanted. A place this big needs attention and this one could use a little more.

Owner's Response: Hi Daniel, Thank you for staying with us. I appreciate your recommendations and I've turned them over to my management team to address. I'm sorry the fountain was not working, apparently the motor had some fishing line tangled up in it and burnt it out prior to your visit and I wasn't aware it didn't work. I went back and checked my text to you about the pass word and it showed being received on Aug 18th 5:34 pm so perhaps it didn't show up on you phone. VRBO has all the other items you were looking for on there site, I should of done a better job directing you to them. Again thank you for staying with us and look forward to having you back with us soon. Thanks, Mark

Beautiful, clean, and spacious!

  • 5 of 5

From my first contact with the owner to our departure, everything worked out smoothly. We used the property for a church staff and teacher retreat. Everyone raved about the place and we want to return next year! The beds and couches were comfy. Plenty of towels, toilet paper, etc. The porch offered lots of seating. The upstairs kitchen was well stocked. The downstairs kitchen was a blessing to house extra snacks and beverages.

Beautiful log cabin with plenty of room for all

  • 5 of 5

This home is well equipped with everything we needed for our annual family reunion. Plenty of space for 5 couples and 5 teenage children. The property was well cared for with plenty of space for outdoor recreational activities. Easy access for mountain biking and hiking on gorgeous trails. Also plenty of seating options for dining indoors and outdoors on the patio. This house also has 2 full size kitchens perfect for meal prep for large family gatherings. This is our new favorite gathering spot and we will definitely be back again next year.

Wow... understated luxury and room for everyone.

  • 5 of 5

We were there for 3 nights, for a family reunion. When you first walk through the door you are hit with the grandeur of massive wooden beams and a spacious family living area. The first thing i thought was how reminiscent it is of a national park hotel. There are something like 7 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms contained in and upper and lower living area In addition to a master suite, there is a mini master suite right off of the kitchen. it has a full deck on the upper level and a very large patio on the lower level. Payson can be fairly warm in the summer, and the house is kept at a perfect temperature. Around four or five, you naturally tend to drift outside to the cooling air temps. We spent the evenings playing outdoor recreations till dark. This is an ideal place for a large family reunion or even several couples wishing to spend time together. Every room is nicely decorated, and the beds are very comfortable. Ten minutes to downtown Payson, and 30 minuted to the top of the rim. Hiking opportunities every where. Everyone in our party had a great time, and each had plenty of room. Highly recommend, and already planning our next visit.
