About Michelle and Matthew Baller

High school sweethearts, Matthew and I have been together for over 33 years. We moved to Tucson, from Denver, 15 years ago, where I work as a Reading Specialist with elementary aged students. We have two teenagers and plan to continue making many memories with them, here at Cinder Mountain Retreat!

Michelle and Matthew Baller purchased this house in 2014

Why Michelle and Matthew Baller chose Pinetop

We love this home because of the tranquil view it offers of the Indian Reservation forest, thus we named it Cinder Mountain Retreat. Also, the fact that it is newly remodeled, is a huge bonus to us. We felt it was time to buy this vacation home because we have a long history of visiting this area often to hunt elk, fish, camp, kayak, snow ski and gamble. Now that we own Cinder Mountain Retreat, we are especially blessed and excited to share it with extended family from Arizona and our Tucson friends.

What makes this house unique

Cinder Mountain Retreat has been newly remodeled and this is what initially attracted us to the property. Once we viewed Cinder Mountain Retreat in person, we were in awe of the backyard view. It is rare to have unobstructed 180 degree views of the forest. Because we want all guests to have a positive experience, most everything in this home has been newly purchased. Another perk to renting this home is the convenient access to skiing, fishing, kayaking, hunting and so many other recreational activities. There is definitely something here, in this area, for all ages to enjoy.

What A Lovely Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cabin!

  • 5 of 5

First off this cabin is awesome! We cooked a full Thanksgiving Dinner and had all the cooking utensils and appliances without any need for anything extra. The fireplace is so cool! Decorated in woodland fair it also opens on both sides. Having a supply of wood was a plus as well. Another great thing about this cabin was having central air (heat) that worked efficiently. My kids really enjoyed the bunk beds and the games. Doggie run was perfect! Cabin is also on an easy to drive road (so no 4x4 needed). Thanks for letting us stay in your wonderful cabin.
