We are also pet friendly ! What kind of vacation would it be if you have to leave your pet in the heat?

Torreon is a gated golf community developed by Desert Troon to accomodate the Phoenix (3 hour drive)and Tucson people (4 hour drive)looking for cooler summer temperatures.It is Arizona,sunny 350 days a year but here in the White Mountains (6,500 ft elevation) we rejoice in summer temperatures rarely reaching the 90's. With no humidity or no bugs, it is the best weather in the United States!

We know the importance of your 4 legged family member so we are pet-friendly, but beware Torreon does not allow fences so there is no containment.

The garage holds 2 cars and car rental & adult bikes are available. Great trails abound in surrounding state forests or walk and bike within the gated community. 5 minute WALKING distance to Clubhouse, Family Center, tennis, pool,hot tub, basketball, sand volleyball, fishing and Fitness Center. Two world class 18 Troon Golf courses, great restaurant & bar on site. There are riding trails behind Torreon on state lands, horse boarding facilities or arena and group horseback riding lessions.

What more could you ask for? We are in a fabulous location for both adults and children, beautiful setting, safe (24/7 roaming security),magnificent weather. Safeway grocery store is a 5 minute drive. Drive to Show Low (5 minutes) or Pinetop/Lakeside (20 minutes) for restaurants, shopping, antiquing. Come discover the White Mountains of Arizona and make everyone's summer memorable.

For winter guests, the Sunrise ski resort man-makes snow for a full season of skiing, snowboarding or snowmobiling. Sunrise is a 45 minute drive from our cabin, many rental stores along the way as well as at the base of the mountain. 4 wheel drive car is recommended.

About Stacey Ruggaard, Torreon vacation rental specialist

We lived in Fountain Hills AZ for three years and drove to the White Mountains (2 1/2 hours) for respite from the summer heat. We fell in love with the mountain views, the cool temperatures, 4 seasons and all the outdoor activities.After living abroad for 20 years, we found our place of peace in the White Mountains and built our dream loghome.The four of us and dog Jack live in this loghome year round except for the summer and 2 weeks around Christmas when we travel.

Stacey Ruggaard, Torreon vacation rental specialist purchased this lodge in 2006

Guestbook comments from the owner

What can we say? Wow! We have spent the last 10 years at different locations and this rates as one of the best. Lots of games of ping pong and pool and nights at the dining table playing games, made it a week we won't soon forget. Grandma's most favorite part: she has all her boys and grandkids together for the first time in years. Altogether we could not have picked a better place to spend this Christmas season. Plenty of room to get away and to get together! Snow appeared on Christmas Eve and the kids saw Santa Clause putting gifts under the tree and to say the least, all our wishes and dreams came true this Christmas 2012.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time with a group of our close friends and their families. Game room and movie theater were a nice addition, and all the rooms having beds for adults was perfect. Owner was excellent and a pleasure to work with. Highly recommended!

Beautiful and welcoming!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a lovely time at Stacey's home. We were welcomed with fresh flowers on the kitchen counter and a tray of Hershey kisses my kids were thrilled about. We were 2 families (4 adults and 5 kids, ages 12-16) There was plenty of space for all of us and we loved having the use of so many bathrooms. The kids never complained of being bored between having the game room, theater room, and community area where they played tennis and basketball. When the adults weren't joining the kids, there was enough quiet space for us to talk or just sit and read. The house is kept very clean and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook and serve the nine of us. It was a chilly weekend so we loved that they provided wood for the main fireplace that we all enjoyed sitting around. A couple of questions arose during our trip and Stacey was extremely prompt and helpful answering them. We would definitely stay there again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review my log home. I am so happy that you took advantage of all of the home features and that you created great family memories; that is why I rent my personal home out. Please come back in the summer to get away from the heat. It is absolutely beautiful and in the 80's ... promise, you will not want to leave! Amicably Stacey

Christmas memories of a lifetime!!

  • 5 of 5

Nothing could have made our cabin stay better. Stayed there over Christmas, anniversary, birthday and New Years. Had lots of family come help us enjoy the experience as well. House is nicely furnished and maintained. Beautiful area to stay. 3 or 4 miles away from town too.

Stacey was awesome! Quick to respond to any silly question I had. We will be back for sure.

Owner's Response: Well I'm glad the family finally made it to my personal log home! Thank you for your good review and I hope to see you soon again. The home is magical in winter... Just saying... Amicably, Stacey Homeowner Ps I just returned to my log home and wanted to thank you for leaving it in such good condition that I had to call the cleaning lady to see if she had done a first pass already. Now you are MORE than welcome to come back soon and often!
