About the property

Beautiful 5 Bedroom, 4 Bath Plus Living Room Family Room And Office

Remodeled this past year, this is THE cabin in Munds Park! You'll know you are at the right place when you see situated atop the hill this majestic 3-story cabin peaking through the pine trees...and you will quickly see why it is known by the locals as 'The Castle in The Pines'. The cabin is 3600sf of breathtaking views. 3 stories, each with enormous wrap-around decks offering views of the serene lake, towering mountains, and pines as far as the eye can see. We are close to everything, but without sacrificing the peace & quiet we all seek when escaping to Munds Park. The 'Castle in the Pines' is a true 5-bedroom, each with a king bed and one with 2 twins and a divider. Two of the rooms are Master Suites with private decks, en-suite full baths, and one with jacuzzi tub! The Castle sleeps 12 comfortably in beds with then couches and pullouts for up to 15 total max capacity, inc kids. We have a new crib, a pack-n-play, and other baby-friendly amenities. On the first floor is a game room with pool table, ping-pong, appleTV, 65' new plasma TV, Dish, WiFi, Xbox, PS2, all the best board games, fireplaces, wet-bar kitchenette with sink, wine fridge, and mini-fridge. Head out to the deck, grill some burgers and enjoy a game of bean bag-toss. Wind down on the deck at night with a glass of wine and enjoy the unparalleled star-gazing in the clear night sky! We have owned the cabin for 10 years and just recently started offering for rent in the past 3 years! The Pinewood golf-course is reasonably priced and with outdoor grill festivals every weekend in the summer with live-music, a swimming pool, games, volleyball, etc. (extra cost may apply to the country club). If you like to explore, head into Flagstaff and enjoy the ped-mall and there are festivals and concerts just about every weekend (~15-20 minute drive). A short drive to Sedona (~ 30 minutes); Grand Canyon (~3 hrs); local casino (~30 min) or Las Vegas (~4 hrs); even Phoenix and D-backs baseball games only 90 minutes! Amazing trails to hike; ATV's to rent; historic ghost-towns.....seriously it's ALL here you cannot find a better family vacation in a better place at a better cabin at this price.

About Brian Carpenter

We have owned it for 10 years and just decided to start renting it this past year! As many Phoenicians, we retreat to Munds park often during the summer to escape the heat. We saw this cabin and fell in love. Its decks allow you to feel immersed in the beautiful forest, while offering the amenities of a 5 star chalet. We still use it quite often!

Beautiful cabin, great location

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is immaculate and fully stocked. We have rented several cabins in Munds Park and this is by far the best! Such a great value for everything that’s included. We visited with my in laws, sister in laws and family and it was perfect! So much space and privacy. Great for multiple families. Very clean and well kept. We have an 8 month old and loved that there was a crib. We will definitely stay here again.

Very cosy and comfortable, felt like home.

Great place for large families or multiple families

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful cabin in Munds Park, AZ. Brian and Kevin were great to work with. If I had questions, they were always answered promptly. The cabin is so spacious and warm. There were 9 of us and each person/couple had their own space. You can see the lake from the deck and there's plenty of miles and miles to walk. We brought all of our own food as the nearest grocery store is in Flagstaff, which is 15-20 minutes away. The kitchen is well furnished with lots of bowls, plates, serving dishes, etc. Our favorite place was right in front of the wood burning fireplace on the main level. We would all go back in a heartbeat!

A true castle

  • 5 of 5

Great experience as we brought up our twin babies and family to escape the heat. The house was fantastic, not much reason to leave! There was a pool table, table tennis, and a large TV. The decks were amazing and lake views were beautiful. Plenty of bedrooms for a larger group. The only downsized was the driveaway being steep, but thats a small price to pay for the beautiful views. Highly recommend

Great multi-family cabin- lake view, 3 stories- plenty of space

  • 5 of 5

Great time with two families (3 kids each family ages 8-13). We spread out among the 3 stories- which had three separate living areas- key to allowing the kids to branch out.

2-minute walk down to the lake was a great way to start the day with a cup of coffee.

This place was stocked very well-

Plenty of wood for the two wood burning fireplaces

Kitchen- pots.pans/coffee maker, spices, condiments

Family room- games, cards, music (hidden gem of ~30 CDs- some scratched, but great flashbacks)

Rooms- plenty of space, closet space- I even took a work call from one room's desk area before we checked out.

Deck- tons of chairs with pads, tables, etc.

Criticisms? barely any- the driveway is STEEP, but there are two ways in, so you don't have to back out. There wasn't ice or snow, so no big deal. The cabin is really well stocked, but does have quite a bit of owner's stuff there, so can appear a bit messy in places.

We would stay again if in the area.

Memorable family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time with three family groups - six adults and three kids ages 5, 16, and 18. On cue at Christmas, Santa delivered 12 inches of snow. The house was decorated for Christmas with two trees and lights! Fortunately we had stocked up on groceries. The five year old from Honolulu thoroughly enjoyed sliding down the driveway. A very comfortable home with all the amenities. The franklin stove came in handy and all enjoyed the ping pong table. Just a short run to Flagstaff and a bit longer for a visit to Sedona. Castle in the Pines fit our families perfectly.
