About the property

Recently refreshed 3 bed, 2.5 bath that sleeps two families

Located on a quiet, heavily treed street in breathtaking Lakeside, Arizona, Forest Haven Cabin provides the perfect mountain getaway for all types of guests, including individual families, large groups, honeymooners, friends on a ski vacation, and everything in between for a vacation rental!

On the main floor, enjoy two large bedrooms, one with a queen bed and private 1/2 bath, and one with a bunk bed + day bed with a trundle. A short jaunt upstairs takes you to a private master suite with a king bed and full bathroom. And if that isn’t enough, enjoy plenty of additional room for fun and games in the large bonus room downstairs featuring a pool table, ping pong table, wood burning stove, and big screen TV, perfect for watching movies after a long day outdoors! In the main living room you’ll find plenty of seating around the large rock fireplace, the ideal gathering place for the adults to relax and chat while the kids play in the large backyard. Guests can choose from one of two large decks to also sit and relax while listening to the wind whip through the lofty tops of the pine trees, or while enjoying the crisp mountain air while watching the stars light up the night sky. The cabin will sleep eight comfortably or ten if you maximize the sleep options. Note that the cabin does not have A/C but this is generally not an issue as even in in July/August the cabin area is generally cool.

At Forest Haven you’re just a short drive from many nearby amenities including Sunrise Ski Resort, multiple fishing lakes, great hiking and ATV trails, top area restaurants, antique stores, a movie theater, and tons more to do at 20-30 degrees cooler than Phoenix or Vegas. On-site amenities include high-speed WiFi, Satellite TV, DVD player, board games, yard games, two BBQs (propane & a smoker), items for traveling infants and much more!

Our goal is to make you feel like part of our family from the moment you step foot into our cabin to the moment you check out. Check out our calendar find the perfect dates for your family mountain getaway this year! Hurry, great memories await you!

About Teesha Wiggins

Married since 2001, we're a family of five that loves spending time together; he grew up in New York City, she grew up in Minneapolis, our three boys are all under 10 years old. We use the property roughly once a month throughout the year.

Teesha Wiggins purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Teesha Wiggins chose Lakeside

We were considering a vacation home for a long time but never found the right one. We walked into this property and immediately fell in love with it. We love all that the Pinetop-Lakeside area has to offer and have hiked most of the trails, fished the local lakes and enjoyed a pint or two at the nearby watering holes. You'll find that you can get anything you need in a 5 minute drive or you can enjoy your privacy.

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin was refurbished twice, most recently in 2009 when the interior was updated to 'cabin chic' with knotty pine and an over-sized fireplace. The yard is large and quiet with a bunch of pine trees. The front and back patio decks are a great size for relaxing in the cool breeze. The cabin is consistently 20-30 cooler than metro Phoenix or Las Vegas making this a great destination for those looking to get out of the heat for a weekend.

The cabin was very charming and laid out perfectly to accommodate our 2 families.

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect. The cabin was clean and well-maintained. Beds were confortable. Kids loved the pool table and ping pong table. Cabin layout was perfect for 2 families to enjoy, providing separate areas to hang out if desired. Would definitely recommend and hopefully get the chance to stay here again.

Awesome place for a family!

  • 5 of 5

This place is great. The home has everything you could possibly need while staying there. The owners are very forward thinking and have gone out of their way to make sure the place is accommodating. Our kids loved the huge back yard. Played on the hammocks for hours. The yard is closed in and safe for kids and dogs to roam about. The location couldn't be better. Very close to a Safeway. Plenty of restaurants super close. Darbi's was a favorite of ours. Huge breakfast helpings.

We will definitely stay here again in the future.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful home for our family getaway. The home was fully stocked with anything we could have needed and the pool table made rainy days fun! We couldn't have asked for anything better.
