About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Escape the heat of the city, and come on up to the White Mountains of Arizona. Enjoy the mountains, The Mogollon Rim, and all its splendor in our relaxing year-round cabin set in Timberland Acres. At 7000ft elevation with captivating city and mountain views, this cabin is the perfect retreat from all the stresses of the city. A scenic drive of only 2 1/2 hours from Phoenix or 3 1/2 hours from Tucson, we are located 8 miles west of Show Low, Arizona, 3 miles off Hwy 260.

Tucked away on a forested lot with privacy, the peace and quiet will renew your senses. Recently redesigned, our 950 square foot cabin is loaded with charm and is the perfect retreat for two to four. The master bedroom has a King size bed and cozy linens. Snuggle up with your favorite novel, watch television, or just kick back and enjoy the views of the forest. There is one full bath with tub and shower. A stacking washer & dryer are available for your use. Toiletries, towels, soaps and paper products are all provided.

The kitchen features a new stove, dishes, cookware, and although there is no dishwasher, it's stocked with every convenience to make your stay more enjoyable. The family room has a leather sofa sleeper and recliner. There is a 37 inch television with a DVD/ VCR. We have lots of games, puzzles and cards. The wood stove has an electric log set for the ambiance of a fire without the mess. The cabin also has Gas forced heat and Central air conditioning. The dining area has seating for four. Upstairs in the loft, there is a Queen Size bed. The loft leads out to the observation deck, which offers more incredible views. A telescope is provided for evening star gazing.

Please note that although the cabin is year-round and very accessible, the driveway can sometimes be slick with morning ice, which we maintain by using salt when needed. If you prefer, there is ample parking at the lower half of the property, with a sled available to transport your belongings.

A one-time cleaning fee (non-refundable) of $55.00 is added to all reservations.

About Julie White

Jon and I are both from the midwest, and grew up spending time in the great outdoors. We were thrilled to discover the White Mountains just a short trip from Tucson and Phoenix.

Julie White purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Julie White chose Timberland Acres

We fell in love with this cabin at first sight and knew it would be the perfect home away from home. Off the beaten path, removed from the hustle and bustle of town, yet close enough so nothing is inconvenient.

What makes this cabin unique

The area offers hiking, fishing, sightseeing, historic landmarks and more. The location is central to everything you can see, do and experience in Arizona. The beauty and splendor is unsurpassed.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed our stay and have never stayed anywhere so well equipped. Thank you for renting your cabin. I can’t think of anything that would have improved our stay. Our dog enjoyed the turkey walking thru the front yard; he had never seen one of those.

Slice of heaven

It simply doesn't get better than this: cozy, clean, quiet, charming, comfy cottage with a killer front porch and to-die-for views. We adored this place and loved every minute of our stay!

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Very clean. Well decorated. Comfortable bed. Beautiful views and felt away from everything, yet a short drive to town. Hope to come again!

Peaceful getaway

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is the perfect getaway. So quiet and great views. While we were there we saw several deer just wander through the property, even stopping and looking at us for a few minutes. The cabin is well stocked with everything you need. We grilled all our meals and even ate some of them outdoors at the picnic table. Our dog had a blast walking around the trails on the property. A lot of our time was spent sitting on the rocking chairs on the peaceful porch. The owners were great to work with, made it so easy. We are already looking at the calendar for next year.

A Wonderful Repeat Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Returning to the cabin is a very comfortable feeling. It truly feels like returning home. Once again everything was in tip-top condition and furnished nicely. The kitchen is fully stocked with anything one might need. The king bed is so comfortable. We spend a lot of time on the porch in the rocking chairs overlooking the town in the distance. Nature is the big plus here - trees, birds and not-so-sly fox. They stroll casually by. The owners are a pleasure and answer any question promptly.

Great getaway..!

  • 5 of 5

This place is perfect for a quiet getaway, it is clean, well kept, the owners did a lot with the space, and we had everything you could think of there. We didn't even have to leave if we didn't want to, you could get groceries & just stay at the house the entire time (which we will probably do, again),

We saw a lot of wild life, which we love because we live in a heavily populated city. My hubby is already planning another trip, lol. That never happens! This was a suprise birthday getaway for him, and he loved the cabin so much. There is even a loft with a small office and bedroom upstairs if you want guests. We enjoyed our stay and we will be back.

We thought we would try this cabin for a week and found it to be fabulous! Inside is fully furnished, just like it states in the description. You only need to bring your clothes and plenty of food to cook (whether in the oven, stove top, microwave or grill) and snack on. The king size bed is very comfortable, along with the pillows. Towels are plush, plenty of dish clothes and towels. Amazing how nice and homey this cabin is, neighbors are friendly when out walking. We would sit outside in the morning and listen to the birds and squirrels, at night we would sit outside and see the city lights and stars. Was so peaceful and quiet, no city traffic noise. Did not need to close the blinds at night because there was no one around. We did not need to guess what switches went to what because it was clearly mark. Info about wifi was on the bulletin board. We just loved it and are returning for a month Sept. 2016. Jon and Julie are very nice and accommodating. Thank you both for letting us stay in your cabin and are looking forward to returning.
