About Owner/manager

My father purchased an old cabin in 1970. In 2007 we tore it down and built a 3800 sq. ft five bedroom home. We have five kids and fifteen grandkids and the old cabin, with only two bedrooms and one bath wasn't working. We can now all fit in nicely and if it gets too noisy the grandparents can go up to the master bedroom and get completely away. I have really been able to bond with my grandkids.

Owner/manager purchased this house in 2007

Why Owner/manager chose Lakeside

Our vacation home is close to everything. Walmart is five miles away. The theatres are a mile and a half. There are several excellent restaurants close. We are 32 miles from Sunrise ski resort. We are four hours from the Grand Canyon. We have done day trips there and to other locations that are unique. There is no place on the planet like the Petrified Forest, Meteor Crater, the Painted Desert. These have been interesting and fun days trips for our family, within two hrs. There are trail heads close by with some excellent hiking opportunities. There are various mountain lakes, some within a couple of miles, others close enough to drive to. We are close to golfing with the PInetop country club close, not to mention the courses in Show Low.

What makes this house unique

We are proud of our kitchen. Our son-in-law is a master cabinet maker and we have granite counter tops. I really enjoy our jazucci bath tub in the master bedroom. We have cable TV in all the bedrooms and wifi. We have around 40 ponderosa pine trees on the property. Our six foot high brick fence gives privacy and actually helps with a feeling of being in the forest. I love our master bedroom with a balcony. It is so quiet and relaxing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had the best time with all of our family! Plenty of room and the kitchen had everything. Close to many activities. We'll do this again!

Great place for a family get together.

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is great for a family get together. This is the second year that we have rented this cabin, and plans are already being worked on to return next year. We had 8 adults and 8 children and we never felt crowded. There is so much to do in the area with hiking, horseback riding, go cart rental, to fishing.

The owners are great to work with.

Our family had a wonderful vacation. The property is just as described. It was clean and decorated nicely. The pictures do not do it justice. We especially appreciated the fenced in yard since we had little children with us. We spent a day at Woodland Lake Park which is nearby, went to the Show Low 4th of July parade and Fireworks. We would recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Our family also has really enjoyed our property. There are a lot of things to do in the White Mountains. The fenced in property does have a feel of being isolated in the forest. I think I've counted over 60 trees on our property. It has the feel of being in the forest but with really nice accommodations. We love our place and are pretty much using the income to make it better and better. We are finding that people are coming back. We enjoy making our property available for other families.

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the home (it is literally a home), not a cabin. We had a great time. The children enjoyed the game room and being out in the fenced backyard. We didn't have to watch them every second. The kitchen was fully equipped and beautiful. The location is close to stores, restaurants, and a movie theatre. I'm sure we will go back this winter!
