About the owner: Our names are Aric and Carolyn - we are native Arizonans who love buying, selling and renovating properties. We have 3 kids, one in college and 2 in high school. Our favorite travelling destinations are the wine country north of the Bay area, Puerto Penasco Mexico ( where we own a beachfront rental property), and in the summer, Pinetop Arizona. Our most recent travel experience was a cruise that took us to Aruba, the Panama Canal, Cartagena Columbia, Costa Rica, and Nassau. The more we travel, the more we come to appreciate Arizona, and the wide variety of climates, activities and amenities that are available to the people who live and visit here.
Why the Owner Chose Pinetop-Lakeside, AZ, USA:
We were invited by friends several years ago to stay at a cabin in Pinetop for a week. During that stay we just fell in love with Pinetop Country Club and most Importantly Starwood Estates. We loved the newer home amenities and the gated entrance. The beautiful walking areas cool pine breeze and summer rains hooked us immediately. The area has golf courses, horse back riding, lakes, hiking and biking trail and much more.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
This home is unique in that it is a split floor plan, with large, soaring ceilings, that provide a light and airy feeling. the materials and decorating impart a wonderful cabin feel, with wood and stone perfectly integrated throughout. At the time we bought, our kids were younger and the gated community and almost no traffic (there are only 7 houses on our street) allowed the kids to play and run free in the front and back yard. The Pinetop / lakeside area has a wealth of activities in the summer, and the shops, stores, movie theaters, restaurants are numerous and enjoyable. The weather is perfect for golf and more golf, and there are many art and music festivals and events throughout the summer. There is even the Hun- Dah Casino close by, lots of fun! Finally, everything you need or want is in close proximity, particularly the Tonto National Forest, whose entrance is less than 1/4 mile from our house. The weather is perfect in the summer and allows for hiking, biking, and any number of outdoor activities to be enjoyed.
