Cabin with a view and walk to river

Bedrooms 3
Space 1,200 sq ft
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

Only 1.5 hours from Phoenix lies this amazing neighborhood tucked away in the Tonto National Forest. Come and enjoy our four seasons and cool nights. We are just 5 minutes from town with all of its conveniences but the cabin is quiet and relaxing. The East Verde River flows through the community and is available for fishing and swimming. There is plenty of hiking through the forest. Just 10 minutes up the road is the Tonto Natural Bridge. The town of Payson has restaurants, parks, golf, movies and a casino.

The home has two bedrooms upstairs. One with a California King bed and walk in closet. The second bedroom has twin over full bunk beds and a single bed with a single trundle underneath. The single beds can be used separately or you can pop the trundle up and push them together to make another queen bed. The walk out basement also has a queen bed.

You can sit and enjoy the wonderful view from our covered porch or sit on the patio and grill dinner. We often hear and see elk in our neighborhood. The East Verde River is within walking distance to the cabin. During the summer there are several relaxing swimming spots and the river is stocked with trout for fishing.

About Rachel

We live in the Phoenix area with our three kids. We love being outdoors running, hiking, swimming and enjoy having a place to get away from the heat!

Rachel purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Rachel chose Payson

We fell in love with the views from this cabin and its location can't be beat! We have amazing scenery and are within walking distance to the year-round flow of the East Verde River where our kids love to swim, fish and throw rocks in the water. All this just three convenient miles outside of town.

Loved the place, everything was nice and cleaned enough towels, dishes, chairs to sit out side and look at the rain fall, very closed to Payson, Parks, Lakes to fish. Do plan to come back again. Thank you.

Quaint & Comfy

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed the cabin. Very clean and well kept. Pictures were very accurate and owner gave detailed information prior to our arrival to make it a smooth stay. Cell service was hit or miss so be prepared to drive towards town if you need to make a phone call or text (although I did find my texting worked a bit better once I connected to the wifi). We have 3 small kids (ages 5, 3, and 1) and they loved playing on the deck and exploring in the front yard and as we walked around the neighborhood. Overall very enjoyable and relaxing stay.

Nice place

  • 5 of 5

Only one minor suggestion is that the fireplace was removed and this wasn't in the photos. We couldn't use our wood inside the house.

Owner's Response: Hi Saud, So glad you and your family had a great time at the property!! Our cabin has never had a real fireplace. Our pictures show a small heater we have upstairs that "glows" a little like a fire. Sorry if there was any confusion. Sincerely, Rachel

Great quiet location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the cabin. We especially enjoyed our walks along the river and the kids were fascinated by the herd of javelinas eating the juniper berries around the cabin. The cabin had pretty much everything we needed and we were very pleased with the space.

Thank you so much, Rachel, for sharing your cabin with us!
