About Kathy Cutler

I was born in Boston and moved around a lot growing up as my dad was in the baseball business. The one place I enjoyed living the most was Washington State. I loved living where I could enjoy the four seasons and spend a lot of time outdoors.

My spouse and I live in Mesa but we travel to Show Low frequently and enjoy spending time at our cabin and being out in the cool pines. There is so much to do and see, and the weather is perfect!

Kathy Cutler purchased this cabin in 2016

Why Kathy Cutler chose Show Low

We purchased our cabin in Bison Ridge because of how lovely the area is. It's very peaceful and quiet. We take great pride in keeping our place exceptionally clean. We have family that owns cabins in the same neighborhood so we all go up at the same time every now and then and BBQ together etc., it's a wonderful place to relax, get out of the heat., or enjoy some winter weather!

What makes this cabin unique

One benefit of our property is how clean the cabin is and how we maintain it. We have had several reviews from our guests and most of the comments are about how clean the cabin is. We love the back patio, sitting out back watching the hummingbirds and wild birds visit the feeders while relaxing in the comfortable reclining lounge chairs. The back patio is covered so even when it rains or snows, it's a great place to spend your time.

We love our cabin, and we are happy to share it with others.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this cabin several times and have a great time every trip. This trip there was a small glitch with the cleaning. I didn't even have to say anything. Kathy knew and made things right. She is in tune and involved with her cabin and her goal is her vrbo customers have a great experience. I highly recommend the black bear!

5 Star house and location

  • 5 of 5

My wife,dog and my self just stayed a week at the Black Bear Lodge. This house and everything in it are brand new. Everything you need is there. Just shop for food and your set. We have stayed at many rentals. But this House Beats 5 diamond resorts we've been to. The back porch is the place to hang out with your dog. The WI FI was perfect. We even watched movies on Netflex with our account. I am now making plans to book next year.

Quiet and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The Black Bear Lodge was quiet, comfortable and a well equipped cabin in Show Low. We enjoyed our stay and especially the back deck and the very secure yard for our 2 chihuahuas. The location was great, close to Fools Hollow Lake and just about 3 miles from the main strip in Show Low. The furniture and bedding were very comfortable, the kitchen well equipped.
