About the property

Welcome to our 'Knotty But Nice' cabin!

Our 'Knotty But Nice' cabin features the perfect blend of rustic and modern with all the amenities that you will need. Escape the city to one of the few true log cabins in the area. Our cabin is located in the beautiful Pinetop Country Club on a heavily wooded 1/2 acre lot. Walk out the back door and into the National Forest where there are miles of forest to explore while hiking, mountain biking, running, and ATV riding or enjoy the forest from the large covered wrap around deck with a brand new flagstone patio with outdoor seating. In addition, four mountain bikes and horseshoes are available for you to use while at the cabin. Very private and peaceful location with easy access year round and only minutes to shopping, dining, and Pinetop festivals. One mile to golf and horseback riding, 5 minutes to Hon-Dah Casino, 30 minutes to Sunrise Ski area.

The 20' cathedral ceiling and tall windows in the great room provide plenty of natural light and the cozy wood burning stove will keep you warm on chilly mountain nights. Although the wood burning stove is nice, it is not the only heat source as there also is thermostat controlled gas heat. Our cabin is beautifully decorated with new wood flooring, new furnishings (including mattresses!) and newly remodeled kitchen with granite counter tops and a slate backsplash. There are 2 bedrooms on the first floor (1 king log bed, 1 queen log bed) along with a full bath. The huge master suite (1 king log bed) in the loft has a reading area and en suite fully remodeled bathroom. For additional sleeping, the futon in the loft sleeps two and there is plenty of room for the kids to play in the loft too.

Why The Owner chose Pinetop

At 7,265', the elevation provides very comfortable temperatures in the summer, a winter wonderland in the winter, and a mild spring and fall. Easy access to skiing at Sunrise Ski Resort. Pinetop Country Club is the closest development to Sunrise Ski area and has unmatched access to the National Forest lands. The perfect vacation location for all seasons!

What makes this cabin unique

Our cabin is very private on a 1/2 acre lot backing to the national forest which is ideal for hiking, mountain biking, running, and riding ATV's.

Fantastic Long Weekend in the Pines!

  • 5 of 5

The weather was perfect for our long weekend in the pines. The property is a true cabin, that is well appointed and the updates that have been done, so tasteful. The fireplace took the chill away and provided a cozy ambience for our stay. The property is in a great community and is situated so, that you have wonderful privacy to gather on the porch/patio and listen to the whispering of the tall pines. The cabin is great for couple(s) and/or a family. We are already planning our next stay at the "Knotty But Nice Cabin".....just lovely! The owner was great to work with!!!!

What a gem in Pinetop

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cabin! We were with another family for a long weekend and it is great. Lots of attention to detail and very comfortable. Big backyard looking out to open forest. Great location and spot to get away from it all. Beds very comfortable and baths and kitchen newly remodeled. We will stay here again.

Peaceful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Amazing cabin! Rustic, clean, comfortable, and cozy. We enjoyed the peaceful backyard which opens up to the National Forest perfect for hiking and exploring. Our kids absolutely loved everything about this cabin! The owners were available to answer questions quickly. We really enjoyed the wood burning stove/fireplace. This cabin has everything you need to cook a nice meal (Pots, pans, can opener, wine opener, utensils etc...) There's an easy to get to grocery store just 15 minutes away. we felt right at home! It was a perfect family getaway! Movies, boardgames, family bonding time! Perfect! We can't wait to go back!

Pine tree haven

  • 5 of 5

Perfect cabin in the tall pines. The backyard opens onto the National Forest with hiking trails, beautiful birds, just as peaceful as it gets. We enjoyed the patio table and chairs and the covered porch for coffee and cocktails. The cabin is very clean and the decorating is tasteful.

When we needed help to understand the TV etc the owners responded immediately. We plan to rent again in the spring and highly recommend this cabin for couples or families.
