About the property

3 bedroom 2.75 bath nestled in Cool Pines sleeps 9-11

This 2200 SF cabin on 3 levels is perfect for families looking to get away, writers or painters looking for quiet and inspiration, or outdoorsy types looking for a jumping off point for hiking, fishing, skiing, hunting, mountain biking or kayaking.

This house is the perfect blend of modern finishes with rustic touches. You'll feel like you're in your own home, but one look outside reminds you that you are truly away from it all!

The main floor has a family room with 2 comfy deep couches to watch the fireplace or TV/DVD unit plus dining for 8 and a reading nook. The soaring A-frame kitchen is stocked with pots, pans, spices, plus dishwasher, microwave and gas stove. The main floor queen bedroom is right across from the full bath with Jacuzzi jets for you to soak after a long day outdoors. Step out onto the 200 SF covered front deck in the morning with Adirondack chairs to drink your coffee and look at Strawberry Mountain. In the afternoon, enjoy the partially covered 500 SF back deck with chaise lounges, over-sized benches to seat 14(!!) and gas grill. The lot is almost an acre, with tall pines shading you from the summer sun, or gently holding the winter's light dusting of snow.

The upstairs floor has a loft style queen bedroom with treetop views (no door due to the A-frame), a bathroom with shower and a pocket door that tucks behind it, and a loft with sleeper sofa you reach by walking across an interior wooden bridge. Many an impromptu kids' talent show have taken place on that bridge with the audience looking up from the main floor below.

The lower floor has 2 bunk beds (twin/twin and a twin/full) with Paul Frank themed sheets, a full bath for your little monkeys, and a game area with TV/DVD/VCR plus puzzles, dress-up, some Barbies and other games. You may also be able to find art supplies, books, and a horseshoe set. The walkout double door in the game area is also the perfect morning viewing area for the family of deer that live right across the driveway near the shed.

If you feel like you need to leave our wonderful cabin, town is just a short downhill walk, quick bike ride or lightening fast drive. Restaurants, bars, antique stores, and multiple ice cream shops are all centrally located on Highway 87. The town of Strawberry is 3 miles north, and Payson 13 miles south. We can give you recommendations, as well as some insight to their somewhat quirky hours.

About Anita Renner

We live in the Valley of the Sun and have enjoyed using our cabin to get away from the heat of the summer and enjoy the snow in the winter. For the last 3 years, we have been remodeling. Now that it is finished, we want to share our home with others who want to build memories with their families, but still want all the comforts of home.

Anita Renner purchased this cabin in 2009

What makes this cabin unique

Your blood pressure will drop as soon as you make the last turn onto our street, and the pines almost touch each other overhead. Pull into the driveway and sink into the Adirondack chairs, or walk out the back deck to enjoy the chaise lounges while your kids swing. Take a nap on the hammock with sun shining gently through the trees, or roast marshmallows around the outdoor firepit. If it is too cold, build a fire in the family room and kick your feet up on the coffee table while you snuggle underneath furry blankets.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for having us at your cabin. The pictures posted on the internet do it no justice…the place was very nice.

We had a lot of fun and will definitely consider staying there in the future.

Thanks again,

Nice inside - outside needs attention

  • 3 of 5

Our extended family enjoyed a nice getaway in Pine two weeks ago. The house had everything we needed to cook all our meals and very comfy beds and it’s in a very quiet neighborhood. Plenty of room for all of our family. The grandkids enjoyed the loft and the bunk beds! The upstairs toilet was still broken and the lower level hot water wasn’t working, but since we’re all family we didn’t mind using the different levels for our needs - luckily there are three bathrooms. The outside was very disappointing. We specifically looked for a rental with nice outdoor space where we could enjoy the cooler weather. I was looking forward to a nap under the pines in the hammock pictured on the website but it was totally rotted. Our family of 8 only had four usable outside chairs. Two chaise lounge chairs were busted and two Adirondack chairs were ready to collapse. On the website you see a picture of the nice deck with a huge stack of plastic chairs, but there were only 3 usable plastic chairs. We did find one more folding chair. The deck had several spills that hadn’t been cleaned up and the grill was dirty and rusted and no propane in the tank. I emailed the owner who responded that she was disappointed to hear about the state of things and said she had a replacement hammock and extra plastic chairs locked up in the garage. I asked if there was anyone around who could get them out for us and she said she would see about having the cleaning lady come get them, but no one ever showed up. It’s one of the more pricey rentals in the area, so if you are planning to use the outside amenities I would check with Anita to see if these things have been taken care of. Had the outside been what we were expecting based on the website, we would have given the place 5 stars!

Nice, but could have been better

  • 4 of 5

This was a nice cabin that accommodated two families very well; it was specious and stocked with all the necessary amenities. Although we had a wonderful time, the cabin is in need of some TLC, and a good cleaning. The walkway above the kitchen is dusty and full of webs, every time someone walked on it particles would fall off onto the kitchen Island where cooking was taking place. Our biggest issue was the upstairs bathroom, it was not working therefore, everyone who slept upstairs had to use the downstairs bathrooms, not a big deal you would think, but once there it is quite a nuisance. Prior to making reservations, I read some reviews, there was mention of this bathroom being a problem, and there was mention this problem was resolved. I was a bit upset when the owner waited till she received final payment to then inform us that the upstairs bathroom was not working. I felt this was a bit intentional as the owner had plenty of opportunity to mention this problem through our email conversations. The main floor bathroom sink was clogged therefore having to use the basement bathroom or the upstairs bathroom to brush our teeth or to wash our hands. The living room couches are dirty and stained, can’t say we felt comfortable sitting on them. Although there is window shades on most windows, there is no privacy at night, once lights are on anyone outside can look in. The main patio door has no window covering, this was a bit concerning especially for our children at night. For the next renter I would like to add that the cabin appears to be secluded in the pictures, where in fact, the cabin is located in a nice little community with neighbors all around. There is a local supermarket and gift shops 5 minutes away. The upside to this trip was that we in fact had a wonderful time; the back yard was perfect for the kids and our pet. We spent most of our time outdoors walking the neighborhood, and taking long day trips sightseeing. The end of September was a perfect time to visit, we saw plenty of wildlife literally in our front yard, and the kids loved it.

The cabin was well stocked, cozy and spacious. I will definitely be booking again. Feedback: the spiderwebs around the deck, windows, etc (and we're not girly girls). The deck could use a lantern or a light for at night because the porch light is very dim and only lights the first part of the deck. The cable chord is a bit of a tripping hazard, running across the floor downstairs. Also, not sure if the remotes are suppose to do this but the tv remote for the main floor bedroom controls the tv downstairs. We weren't bothered by it, actually thought it was funny but we weren't sure if it was suppose to do that. Overall we loved our stay and plan on booking again soon!
