Property type cabin

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, mini-golf, movies and a casino.

The home has two bedrooms upstairs. One with a queen bed and walk in closet. The second bedroom has twin 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 murphy 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 amazing 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 Capital Territory & High Country

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.

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!

Great Stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks to Rachel for great experience. The cabin was clean and well stocked. The area (East Verde Estates) is crazy scenic with a path along the river for daily walks if you so choose. There were 3 bedrooms/sleeping areas and two bathrooms which is priceless when you have a bunch of family members or a guest that comes to stay. A sunroom/dining area is at the front of the top floor and I agree with a previous guest, this is a great area for study/work - our daughter did her homework there. There's a view of the canyon from the porch that is nice, and better still - it was actually very private. We like East Verde as a launching pad for our daily trips rather than Payson. Payson is only a 5 minute drive and serves as source of groceries/amenities, but the wonder of the area is around Payson, not in get out and find the scenic destinations. Overall, this stay was a great value. You would be hard pressed to find more for the money.
