About Scott Harrison
I am an architect and general contractor with a background in forestry and working at national parks in my younger years. The Inns at El RANCHO MERLITA in Tucson, Arizona are one of my many projects. My favorite activities are hiking, skiing, hunting, cooking, designing, building, and playing with my family and grandchildren. We are 5th generation natives from Arizona and love the White Mountains.
Scott Harrison purchased this Cabin in 2000
Why Scott Harrison chose Pinetop
My husband's family ranched in the rim country in the early 1900s. We've had a place in the Pinetop area through many generations. Our location overlooks the reservation to the south keeping us close to wilderness area. At 7,000 feet in elevation, it is a great place to be year round. Winter skiing in 1/2 hour away, fishing even closer, and summers are heavenly.
What makes this Cabin unique
Our views are pristine and private. We love to walk a wonderful hour loop that winds through rural and developed areas. Here's a quote from my youngest daughter, Valerie, 'This cabin was designed and built by my mother, an architect. It is her dream cabin. She created the design and supervised the construction through every step ensuring all the details meet her high standards. She is also responsible for decorating the cabin to give it that touch of European magic, as if you are in a warm chalet in the alps.'

A Magical Home among the Ponderosa Pines
The home is quite dramatic - with exterior and interior logs and wildlife adorning the walls - and a large deck surrounded by Ponderosa Pines with private decks/patios for each of the upstairs bedrooms.
Real log home. Gorgeous. Exceeded our expectations.
Fabulous home, perfect location, all of the amenities and more. Already planning for a return trip next year.
Heaven in the mountains
This place has it all! The attention to details that went into the architecture of this beautiful cabin is superb. There's even a dumbwaiter that covers all of the levels, from the garage floor to the very top. You'll enjoy the 4 fireplaces, the open space, the wrap around decks and the close proximity to everything. I definitely intend to rent this beauty again!
Stunning Mountain Retreat
Remarkable architecture, gorgeous setting, the luxuries of a fine hotel (immaculate) combined with the comforts of home.
Great place for a group gathering. Easy to find. Very quiet neighborhood. All contact with owners was prompt and professional.
Once you have filled the fridge (cupboards are stocked with many staples, cook and service ware are plentiful) ) you won't want to leave! If you do, enjoy a fine meal at Bocado. Hit Happy Hour at Charlie Clark's. Walk the Rim Trail. But mostly enjoy the peaceful beauty and comfort of this special home!
Fourth of July Family Gathering
Our family rented this home to spend time during the holiday and we were all blown away with how beautiful this home is. The description of the cabin was accurate and we had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. We found the property to be clean and well maintained, and the owners were available by phone if there were any issues.
The bedrooms are roomy and cozy, and the living area was very spacious. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed to help cook some wonderful meals. I especially liked the food warmer, which helped to keep our food warm while we cooked the rest of the the meal. The dining room and table was large enough to have all of us enjoy our meals together.
We enjoyed playing pool in the upper floor while listening to good music. The bathrooms are roomy and the tub was perfect to bathe our twin grandsons in.
The back deck is large, we enjoyed our morning coffee while enjoying the view of the pinetrees and listening to the birds singing. Everything we needed was close by, Safeway and Walmart, to purchase what we needed. We did not eat out, although there were many restarurants close by.
The home is beautifully decorated which brings added charm to it. There is also a great selection of books to read, and many board games and puzzles to play with.
I would certainly recommend this property to friends, we loved staying here, and hope to return again someday.
