Overview

About the property

4 Bedroom, 4 Baths, Fireplace, 360 Degree Spacious Lounging Deck

The main benefits of “Hodge Lodge” are LOCATION and VIEW.

LOCATION: Our house is about 1 mile from stores and restaurants. It borders Tonto National Forest at the end of Pine View Dr. on the eastern slope of Strawberry Mountain. The area is secluded and peaceful with lots of wildlife.

VIEW: The view is really nice. You see the whole valley and have a clear view of the Mogollon Rim. When you are on the upper deck you are nearly at tree top level and nothing will block your view. The night sky and stars are breathtaking.

The house has 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms that will sleep 8 in beds and for additional sleep options we have a futon in the fireplace room and sleeping pads in the loft.

The 4th bedroom is an apartment which has a private access from the back of the house. It has a King size bed, bathroom with shower, microwave, refrigerator, private patio, WiFi, 42 inch flat screen with satellite TV, and two recliner chairs.

This spacious chalet has (2500 sq. ft.) of living space and almost 2000 sq. ft. of outside decking nestled in the forest. It is a very relaxing and peaceful place. Everything you would need to prepare meals or relax is furnished.

This house is located at the end of a well maintained gravel road. It is one of the highest locations in Pine situated on the east slope of Strawberry Mountain. The view is spectacular. The upper level deck raps around the house for 360 degree view of the area. Our living room is within feet of the Tonto national forest. You would be totally surrounded by tall Ponderosa pines. There are lots of wildlife small and large to view. (Elk, Deer, Coyotes and a variety of small game)

We are within walking distance to antique shops, restaurants, bars, library, community center and playground. Pine/Strawberry host several seasonal arts and crafts festivals, rodeos and other special events. There are many hiking, mountain biking and riding trails. Go horseback riding, golfing, fishing or swimming in the creeks/rivers. Pine has much to offer such as antique shops, restaurants, specialty stores, arts and craft festivals and other special events.

You would be 90 minutes north of Phoenix

157 miles from the Grand Canyon

5 miles from the north side of the Mogollon Rim

13 miles from Payson which has golf, airport, Restaurants, Movies, Wal-Mart, Home Depot, and lots of locally owned shops.

Amazing cabin and we absolutely loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful property and well equipped with everything necessary for a great time. It was very private yet still close to all the shops and restaurants in Pine. Ken was very helpful and responsive and made us feel right at home. Our family absolutely loved it and we will definitely be back.

Great location, big house, plethora of wildlife to see straight from the house!!

  • 5 of 5

Spent 9 days here, everything was clean, stocked and ready for our arrival. Great views of the rim from the wrap around balcony, great wifi throughout the house. Owner is phenomenal and easy to work with.

Only issue we had, which isn’t a big one, the “kids room” in the pics is attached to the master bedroom which I wasn’t aware of. We had 9 people with us and set our sleeping arrangements ahead of time. Would’ve done the sleeping arrangements differently had we known in advance, BUT it wasn’t a huge deal and we made it work. It was a great vacation away from the summer heat in Phoenix!

Pine/Strawberry is such a great area. Was disappointed a lot of trails were closed due to fire restrictions this summer, but we can’t really do anything about that. Plenty of other stuff to do at the house and around town and in Payson.
