About Cody & Lacey Karns

Pinetop has a special spot in our hearts, as we were recently married at The Gathering Place in the Summer of 2016. We love spending time with our friends & family and have a mutual passion for outdoor activities!

Cody & Lacey Karns purchased this condo in 2016

Why Cody & Lacey Karns chose Pinetop

Pinetop has it all!!! Just being here and breathing in the clean air is enough to satisfy your soul, let alone the endless recreational fun that surrounds you. Anytime we visit Pinetop we leave with a smile on our faces and a warmth in our hearts!

What makes this condo unique

We love how comfortable and warming this unit is, you feel right at home the moment you enter.

We like the open layout, split floorplan, and privacy. The space is very comfortable and accommodating for those lazy, relaxing days in the White Mountains. We also love the location, we are close to all the fun (golfing, casino, bars & restaurants, etc...). It's very nice to have the option to eat out at a variety of delicious restaurants or stay in and cook dinner. Being an upstairs unit, you have complete privacy when you're on the back patio and the view is not of another patio, but of the beautiful common ground area which also adds to the privacy you crave in this atmosphere. Also, because it's upstairs you have the vaulted ceilings, which makes the space seem bigger and more open.

Everything is labeled, creating a very user-friendly stay.

Feels like home

My family and I spend four days at The Lazy Squirrel. We immediately felt at home. The home is inviting, charming and warm. Everything that was needed was provided. The condo was very clean. It is located in a very nice area. The owners were very helpful. I will definitely stay again.
