Listen to the trickling stream from your back porch. Watch butterflies play in the fruit trees. Pick a few blackberries and dip your toes in the water...
Blackberry Cabin is a cozy log cabin set back on an acre of pine and fruit trees in the community of Whispering Pines. The fenced backyard leads to the banks of the East Verde, sometimes a gushing river, other times a rocky stream, where locals wade and catch the stocked trout. Riverbanks are lined by grass, flowers and blackberries which you are welcome to pick! Our property includes a unique stone embankment where swallows and other birds like to zip by, with a steep hill behind leading to national forest land. Watch for wandering deer and elk!
Inside there is an open living and dining area with a fully stocked kitchen - just bring your favorite food! There is a loft bedroom with a pleasant sitting area close to the air on warm afternoons, with room for friends or family in the sleeper couch below. On cool fall or winter nights the toasty wood stove will keep you warm with that lovely radiant heat.
Whispering Pines is a small neighborhood of full time residents and visitors escaping the heat and bustle of the city! It is minutes from excellent hiking trails at Washington Park and various public access points on the East Verde. In addition to proximity to the ever-increasing line up of activities in Payson, it is close to local attractions like Tonto National Bridge, and the towns of Strawberry and Pine.
*** Notice *** Please note, this year has been extremely dry which has reduced the East Verde flow and impacted local vegetation and blackberries. With the monsoons there has been some pickup in the water, however each week we are just hoping for more rain. We will be happy to give an update to the best of our knowledge regarding the current status of the East Verde.
