About the Property

3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, 6 Sleeps

Cozy and quiet, perfect for a medium sized family.

This 1,000 SF cabin is located on a 1 acre lot right on the East Verde River in the town of Whispering
Pines, located 12 miles Northeast of Payson down Houston Mesa Road. The fenced yard is heavily shaded with tall oak and pine trees and feels like you're living in a park. It has 2 decks (including table & chairs) for your outdoor relaxation. Escape to the cabin with a short and scenic 1 hour and 45 minute drive from Phoenix!

This adorable cabin has 3 bedrooms. Two of the bedrooms have a queen-sized bed while the 3rd bedroom has a comfy futon. For those chilly evenings there is a stone fireplace in the living room, and
electric heating. The cabin has one recently remodeled bathroom. There is a fully equipped kitchen with an electric stove,
microwave, full-size refrigerator & coffee maker. Free Wifi and satellite TV.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Shain grew up part time in Whispering Pines since 5 years old. He and Debbie met there on the banks of the East Verde River. They purchased Homer and Porsche old cabin in 2011 which Shain had many painting lessons growing up there at an early age. They have spend most of the rental income remodeling and updating the cabin for their personal retirement in 2018.

Why the Owner Chose Whispering Pines, AZ, USA:
This property has memories for Shain and Debbie both. The back river deck is amazing and private access to the river is the best! It has been well maintained over the years and we plan to make it our home base in the near future.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The sound of the river is right off the deck, and the tall ponderosa pine trees keep the deck cool and surreal. A lot of bird life and squirrels like to visit constantly.
