Conrad Nelke purchased this Cabin in 1985
Why Conrad Nelke chose Whispering Pines
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.
What makes this Cabin unique
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.

Family Reunion Fun
Spent the weekend with my family in this lovely place while attending a family reunion in Payson. Plenty of room to relax, the basement was great for the kids and the views are spectacular and breathtaking. It's close enough to town for a trip to the grocery store, but far enough out to feel you were in the forest. We lacked for nothing and will be back.
Cabin and views are amazing
This was my families first time renting a cabin for vacation. We enjoyed every minute. The cabin feels like a home away from home, very comfortable, with everything you could possibly need to make your trip an ease. We will be recommending this cabin to all our friends. Unforgettable views, and great memories. Thank you Conrad.
Amazing views. Property was perfect for our multiple family trip.
Spacious rooms, available beds for multiple families.
Breath taking views
The house was clean and worked well for our group. Things were labeled well and the owner is attentive. The views from the three balconies are unbelievable. The family room has huge windows so you can watch is snow while sitting near the fireplace.
This is our 2nd annual family gathering at your home. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and the spaciousness of the house. We even found snow to play in up on the rim. We will be back next January for our 3rd annual family trip to Payson! Thanks!
