Greer Pines Cabin is close to Greer Lakes, Benny Creek, Rosie Creek, Hall Creek and Little Colorado River. We have hiked down into the Hall Creek Canyon and also hiked along the top of the canyon and gazed down into the canyon. No trails! Make your own. There are many trails nearby just waiting to be used!
Just minutes away from Greer restaurants, Butterfly Museum and Lazy Trout store.
During summer months Music from Greer offers several concerts by donation only. A schedule is provided in the cabin.
All four seasons have their own beauty. Sunrise Ski area is a short 15 miles from the cabin. Summer is delightful with evening temperatures such that you will want a blanket on to sleep.
Autumn has its own beauty. The changing color of the Aspen is a lovely time to be in Greer and the White Mountains.
In the Spring you will see the beautiful wild iris and other wild flowers galore.
Plan to spend time here during the summer - away from the suffocating heat elsewhere. You will be happy you came and will want to hurry back.
Mountain Bighorn sheep are known to come into the yard at Greer Pines Cabin. It's a beautiful thing to see. Also wild turkey are sighted frequently. And, of course, there are deer and elk.

About Carole and Bob Combs
We have lived in Arizona since 1974 and in Greer since 1990. The property the cabin sits on was purchased in 1988. Bob has built cabins in the area and he built Greer Pines Cabin in 2004. The cabin shows his attention to detail and desire to produce a quality cabin. Bob, in retirement, loves refurbishing old cars. He has a Model A in beautiful, driving condition. You are likely to see us in and around Greer in the Model A. Carole likes to quilt and sew for grandchildren. When we have time we enjoy going to Big Lake with our boat and do some 'serious' fishing. In February 2018 we fished from our small boat at Greer Lakes. Carole caught an 18 inch German Brown trout and Bob caught a 16 inch Rainbow trout at Bunch Lake. We still go into the forest and cut our own wood supply in the autumn. Also, it is an annual event for us to get our Christmas tree off the forest (with permit in hand, of course).
Carole and Bob Combs purchased this Cabin in 1988
Why Carole and Bob Combs chose Greer
We love Greer for it's uniqueness. Folks are friendly here and it is the perfect get-away for some and we are fortunate to be able to live here year around. We like its proximity to Hall Creek where hiking is wonderful. There are no trails in Hall Creek Canyon- we make our own. We are also a short way from Greer Lakes.
What makes this Cabin unique
The proximity to Greer Lakes, US Forest Service land with many hiking trails, fishing opportunities and wildlife viewing is the reason people like to come here. State Route 373 ends at the south end of Greer. That is where the the Little Colorado River begins. In our cabin we provide literature on nearby trails and things to explore. Winter sports bring many to the White Mountains and Greer Pines Cabin is the closest rental cabin to Sunrise Ski Area. Bighorn sheep have been re-introduced to this area and there have been multiple sightings on the Greer Pines property and nearby. Guests at the cabin will find puzzles, games and books to enjoy. Some of the books can be taken with you if you decide you would like to read it later or haven't finished reading.

Thank you for choosing Greer Pines Cabin. We are thrilled that it can be a part of your family memories!
A great getaway from the city.
Comfortable, quiet, close to amenities, clean, had everything we needed. Plenty of hiking, fishing and the Petrified Forest was a great day trip.
Petrified Forest is a very nice one-day trip, allowing time to return to the cabin for a nice fire in fireplace or swing on porch swing! (Or both!)
It is a very well maintained cabin. It was very clean and very welcoming. We really enjoyed staying there. Thank you Bob and Carole for allowing us to stay at this beautiful cabin.
It was our pleasure supplying a cabin for our guests to enjoy. So happy to know you enjoyed it.
There are many hiking trails in the Greer area plus many places to hike w/o trails. Butler Canyon Nature Trail is only a one mile gentle hike good for families with small children. West Baldy Trail is 14 miles & is rated moderate. East Fork Trail to Mt. Baldy (lower end) is about 6 miles long to Winn Campground. Benny Creek/Pole Knoll trails is a maze of trails that is used for hiking in the summer and cross-country skiing in the winter. Fishing: There are three reservoirs in the Greer Recreation Area, Bunch, River, and Tunnel Reservoirs. Also the Little Colorado River runs through Greer. Apache, Brown & Rainbow trout species are in the reservoirs and the Little Colorado River. If you want to come and relax there is ample opportunity to do that. Butterflies, birds, and wildlife are abundant and just relaxing and watching is an enjoyment. Deer, antelope, bear, mountain sheep & elk are within view often, perhaps bear not so often though. During winter months snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, sledding and other activities are fun for all. Sunrise Ski area for downhill skiing is just a short distance from Greer Pines Cabin. Sunrise Park now has a zip line. According to their online information there is a series of 6 zip lines, over one mile long. They also have chair lift rides for summer rides up the mountain with a restaurant at the top of the ride or just to walk around at the top. Sunrise Park information page says "Take a round-trip ride, or hop off at the top of Sunrise Peak and enjoy the spectacular views of the Arizona White Mountains for a perfect picture opportunity." Sunrise Park is just 11 miles from Greer Pines Cabin. During the autumn the turning of the aspens is a favorite sightseeing activity. In case you have an illness, Springerville/Eagar areas have excellent clinics and a hospital, White Mountain Regional Medical Center. That community is approximately 15 miles away. Greer has a fire department with an EMT on duty.
