Owner info

Year Purchased: 1985

About the owner: We are at the time of life where we can be our own 'bosses' (retired engineer & English CC teacher.) Our family comes first, then friends (also 4 legged variety) followed closely by golf (him) bridge( us) reading (us); Travel (Our planes head mainly to towns where kids & friends live) Next, Remodeling--him, work--her, inspiration. Club & volunteer stuff-- him HO, her KD; TV--him, sports. her drama! We have been married for 50 years to the same people! Both: married '59, graduated Kansas State '60, had baby, '61, baby '62; baby '63--in '64 we got a dog!! All goes well.

Why the Owner Chose Whispering Pines, AZ, USA:
We wanted a place away from the valley where all of the kids and grandkids could come and be together. We found the area while visiting friends in Whispering Pines in a gorgeous snowstorm the day after a warm Thanksgiving in Phoenix. It seemed like heaven to be able to share both worlds with only a two hour ride. We wanted in! We had the shell built and completed the house ourselves. We picked chandeliers from Mexico, rocks for the fireplace from all over the country, and furnishings from family pieces, 'gently used' and even broke down and bought a lot. It works as 'eclectic to the max,' The views in this area belong to God--we just bought here so we could share them. There is a feeling in the air here that brings out the best in people which makes them happy.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Inviting friends here for a day or a weekend is a joy for us & them. Everyday cares fall away as the pines, oaks, and juniper give the air a certain mountain tang. Actually, The 5,400 feet elevation makes the nights 25 degrees and days 15 degrees cooler than valley temperatures. Here, we have seasons that give us soft spring rain, exciting summer electriical storms, vivid autumn leaves, and frost, snow, & earmuffs. We never tire of seeing the glorious views of 40 miles of Rim that we share with God. Sunsets from the north deck are amazing, and the experience of watching a storm approach through the valley until the new rain finally drives you from your nest in the porch swing inside--unforgettable. We have had many memorable family reunions here--there have been two Golden Wedding celebrations, a Honeymoon--the magic is just beginning. You won't want to forget your time here. Bring your best camera.
