Guestbook comments from the owner

We thoroughly enjoyed this cozy cabin! It was decorated nicely and had a very warm feel. The was plenty of room, and the option for two different fireplaces was nice too. We had a great time, and plan to stay here again!

Perfect Weekend Escape - Look No Further !

  • 5 of 5

I'm not sure if it was waking up to the sun sparkles coming off the lake, the Bald Eagle that swooped down to catch his breakfast - the fish my son caught Easter morning -or the beautiful home itself ... but we will now never rent - anywhere else.

While we had amazing weather & the deck is so close to the water you almost feel you are 'in' the lake itself - we could easily see how cozy a stay would be at 'any' time of year. The house was immaculate, and well stocked. The decor brought a smile, and was absolutely perfect ... a constant reminder you were there for a vacation, a little time out - and memory making. We definitely did just that.

Can't say enough about the owner ... she quickly responded to our questions & truly went out of her way to help & accomodate us. We have stayed up there for years, and can say without hesitation - this was our favorite place - bar none. This is the rental you are looking for!

We truly enjoyed this townhome. Being right on the lake was amazing, and having the 2-man kayak available to use made it even better! There is loads of room in this place (1800 sq ft), and having the garage was great as we brought our bikes and golf clubs with us. The gated community is very quiet, which was great for us as we were there to relax, but I'm not sure how it would be with young children who would want to play. The kitchen has everything and having wireless and cable TV was perfect! And everything was clean and in working order. The only snafu we ran into was trying to ride a bicycle out of the gated community. You really can't get out unless you're in a car as there is no gate to walk through. As for golf, know that the Pinetop Lakes Country Club is basically an expensive executive course with mostly par 3 holes. I enjoyed Bison and Silver Lake much better, with Silver Lake coming out on top for me. Overall, we had a great time and would recommend this place to all who want a relaxing time by the side of an almost private lake!

Amazing Lakefront Property!

  • 5 of 5

One of the best places I've ever booked through VRBO. Beautiful place, lakefront location and view simply can't be beat (we went kayaking every day!) and the host was gracious and helpful. Thanks!

Perfect getaway from Phoenix heat!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome condo with all the amenities. Great hiking spots nearby. We drove 1.5 hours to Cibecue to hike to the waterfall. Amazing! The property was well kept and it was quiet! We brought bikes and biked every day. The owner has a kayak that we used to look at all the beautiful homes around the lake. We would definitely return.

A most excellent time!

  • 5 of 5

It is a wonderful condo, like a home away from home! The view of the lake is simply priceless...The only negative comment i have is that here were just a few cobwebs on the porch, which we dusted off the first day, and no AC does make the upstairs a tad warm in the summer (we visited the 1st week of July) but was not anything we couldn't handle!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review of our condo. We are so glad that you enjoyed your time at the lake. Typically, our summers are cool enough that AC isn't necessary. On some of the hotter days we have found it necessary to use the portable AC unit for a few hours in the late afternoon. With some of the windows open for adequate ventilation, this can cool the upstairs pretty nicely. Thank you again for staying with us. We hope you will visit again soon.
