During the daytime, enjoy the views of the acreage and family fun time as the clouds go rolling by. The property and area is great for hiking and exploring. You will find remnants of old mining operations of the area, some even on our property along the seasonal creek. There is plenty of flat area also with a small apple orchard, horse shoe pit and a lot of quiet in our private forest in the Bradshaw Mountains.

Comforts and conveniences for our guests also include; two BBQ's (one on either side of the cabin), bottled water, all new linens (flannel sheets in the winter), paper products, basic condiments, spices, seasonings and all the small appliances you may need, including the blender and corkscrews for those evenings back out on the deck.

Vintage wood stoves at both levels of the cabin and flannel sheets will keep you toasty warm and add to the ambiance of the cabin. Split wood is ample and space heaters are provided for each bedroom too. A portable fire pit and skewers for roasted marshmallows and hot dogs are ready for your family's enjoyment.

About Lani & Greg Stava

We love the outdoors and traveling. We purchased this cabin 10 years ago for a quick get-away from the valley and to enjoy the four seasons of the Bradshaw Mountains and the charming town of Prescott.

Lani & Greg Stava purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Lani & Greg Stava chose Capital Territory & High Country

Secluded, high mountain cabin with acreage yet close to Prescott. We wanted a rustic cabin in the pines that was not too far from our home in the north Phoenix and a place with history, character and where you could get away from it all, or not.

The cabin sits on almost two acres, it’s 6,682 foot elevation is sometimes 10 degrees cooler than Prescott and usually 20 degrees cooler than Phoenix. It is a 3 bedroom, 3/4 bath with a large deck on the back of the cabin with fabulous views. We have apple trees on the property with fruit usually ready to be pulled in the fall. A seasonal creek at the bottom of the property carries runoff to Lynx Creek and Lynx Lake after the summer rains or with the snow melt. This is truly a charming piece of property we know you will enjoy.

What makes this cabin unique

Serene and secluded... Relax on the deck as you look out over the treetops and down into the valley that seems to always carry a breeze into the property. Two large flat areas on almost two acres of land surrounds our mini apple orchard and is full of iris and delicate forest plants. The towering pines provide a welcomed shade in this second sitting area, two hammocks are nearby for a quick nap or just staring off into the blue skies and lazy rolling clouds.

Recently renovated with new flooring, cabinets and bath on the main floor, decorated to look and feel more like a rustic lodge. Decorations include vintage original oil paintings, mining items, fly fishing rods/reels and an assortment of other treasures from days gone by and collected from here and there to create a more rustic feel to the place.

Look for deer, javelina, an occasional skunk and coyotes. Although more difficult to spot, there are lynx, raccoons, turkeys and occasional black bear sightings the area.


Nearest Restaurant
7 Miles
Lynx Lake Cafe
Car: necessary

This property is located approximately 10 miles south from the intersection of Highway 69 and Walker Road. Walker Road is a paved two lane road for about 9 miles. The last mile to the cabin is a dirt road (but county maintained), that is easily driven by car. If you consider renting during the snow season or muddy "thaw" (December -March having a vehicle with 4WD is suggested as well as VRBO trip cancellation insurance.

Many of the restaurants and entertainment venues are only 15 to 20 miles from the cabin, a quick trip for something forgotten or sight seeing.

There are six lakes are between 8 and 20 miles from your stay (Watson, Willow, Granite Basin, Goldwater, Lynx and Fain Lake), for licensed fishing, boating/kayaking, and some of the lakes have boat rentals available. Fishing and miles of hiking trails are at your backdoor. There are plenty of things to do in and around Prescott!

Great Vacation Destination in the Trees

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were looking for a nice get-away and found this cabin in the forest. This cabin has it all. The owner's attention to detail is nothing less than superb. This cabin is packed full of amenities. Our visit was a pleasure. Our only problem was time moved too quickly and we had to leave. We honestly loved this place.

The perfect place

  • 5 of 5

This property was all we wanted and more. The cabin was fully equipped, comfortable, and very nicely decorated. Located in a ponderosa pine forest, we got out of the desert heat and were able to completely kick back for a few days, which is exactly what we were looking for. Our thanks for making this place available.

Owner's Response: Thank you Michael and Martie! Yes so much cooler than the valley and the stress just seems to melt away once you sit back in the deck recliners. Thanks for taking such good care of the place and hope to see you back again! Greg & Lani

Mountain paradise!

  • 5 of 5

The photos of the Mary May Inn do not do it justice! The cabin is so charming, cozy and very well-equipped with everything one could possibly need during their stay. Lani and Greg have so graciously opened up their cabin to share with others, and they have put so much thought and emphasis on ensuring that their guests have the ultimate stay. We spent so much time on the deck, enjoying the view and the peace and quiet. We were treated with daily thunderstorms that made our stay even more enjoyable. Wandering around and exploring the 2 acres of property was so much fun! We made several trips to Lynx Lake to have lunch or dinner, and to also hike around the lake. Lani and Greg treated us so well, checking in several times during our stay to make sure we were comfortable and settled. We were so sad on the day we had to leave, everything about our trip to this cabin was perfect! We can't wait to come back again to this exceptional paradise in the beautiful Prescott mountains!!
