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 fourth bedroom is the apartment which has a private access from the back of the house with the following amenities. 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 just 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 is 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 hours from the Grand Canyon

5 miles for 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.

Great place with just a few drawbacks

  • 4 of 5

This was a very nice place to stay for our group of 9 people, and we really loved the location. It is close enough to Phoenix to be convenient, but rural enough to feel like we were away from everyone. We basically lived in the fishbowl room, which was big enough for everyone to hang out in to watch movies, work on puzzles, play games, enjoy the scenery, or just sit and visit. The apartment down below is completely separate from the main house which made it inconvenient to use for anything other than sleeping and showering, but it was nice to have the extra room. We could never figure out how to turn any lights on in the fireplace room, so we didn't really use that room either. The kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans for cooking (high chairs and lots of plates/dishes for children), and we loved having it so centrally located. We had one day with almost no water pressure in the entire house. I made a call to the owner and was informed that the city was working on the water that day. He made a call to the city, then called me back to let me know it would be back on by 5 pm (very reassuring). It was a problem because several family members had not showered yet, and we couldn't do the dishes in the kitchen without any water. The water did come back late in the afternoon, but it was frustrating during the day. There are plenty of bathrooms for everyone. We loved going for walks in the area, and seeing deer in the meadow out front in the mornings. There were plenty of blankets and sleeping bags in the house to keep us warm, also. The beds were good overall, except for the queen bed in the apartment, which felt like it was 2 separate beds. We really enjoyed our time in the cabin and will most likely return again.

Owner's Response: Hi Stacie, I am glad that your family had a good time and I hope you will come again. I am sorry about the water problem. The city water department does what they want when they wish. Thanks for the report about the lights in the fireplace room. I was not aware of the problem. I will have my electrician check it out. You are correct about the apartment being separate. I like it because I can escape the crowd and watch a little TV or take a nap. My Daughter-in-Law likes to stay in the apartment because she can put the little ones down for a nap away from the noise and business of the rest of the family. Kind regards, Ken/Karen

Excellant Family Get Away

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to vacation. Everything you could possibly need is there. Just bring your food and you are ready to go. Or you could visit the many restaurants in the area. The home is clean and well maintained. The wrap around balcony is a great place to enjoy coffee with the sunrise. This was our fourth visit and we will continue to visit. As our grandson put it, "It's like our second home."

Nice Escape from the Phoenix Heat

  • 5 of 5

A great house with beautiful surroundings. We stayed for 3 nights and the weather was perfect and the scenery was a nice change from Phoenix. The owners made sure everything was in place ahead of time and he responded to communication very quickly. We also hiked in the Tonto Natural Bridge which was a great adventure. Would highly recommend this house!

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time in this home. It was exactly how it was described. Very clean and amazing views. We even had the luck of seeing elk. We can't wait to visit the area again and stay at this . We highly recommend it especially if staying with multiple families.

Great vacation stop!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Pine this weekend at the Hodge Lodge. The house was clean, roomy and comfortable, and we LOVED the wrap around deck with amazing views. Ken was super responsive and easy to work with. This is the first cabin I've stayed in where I can't wait to return. Thank you!
