Destination guide

Pining for something a bit special on your vacation rental?

This little oasis in Arizona's Rim Country is all about hunkering down in a cabin among the trees and letting the good times roll. A sweet little place with bags of community charm and a handsome 1880s post office, a Pine vacation rental might make you feel like you've stepped back into a different era, particularly if you happen to be around in February when the local Pony Express historical mail service comes galloping through. The area does a mean line in local history museums, and it's also home to Fossil Creek - a lush, riverside wonderland that draws visitors from far and wide.

Up the creek for a paddle

With a Pine vacation rental, you've got weeks of activities at your fingertips, but most visitors are here for one thing - Fossil Creek. This impossibly picturesque stream, with its rich wildlife and pretty waterfalls, hooks in travelers from all over the state and beyond. People come to swim, kayak, and snorkel in the pools, or hike in the surrounding wilderness area. You can even go llama trekking if the mood takes you. When you're all creeked out, soak away the aches of the trail at the Verde natural hot springs, or head for a relaxing round of golf.


You can leave the frying pan at home

Arizona has a reputation for being so hot that you can fry an egg on the ground, but the great joy of a Pine vacation rental is its elevation. Thanks to a bit of height, the climate's gentle and the air's fresh all year round. Summers are still hot though, and you can expect heavy rains later in the season. Winters are mild, and while you will get snow from time to time, it won't stick around long. One of the loveliest times to visit this part of Arizona is in spring, when the desert comes to life with colorful blooms.

Natural features

Cozy up to the canyon and fall for the falls

Pine is set below the Mogollon Rim, a massive escarpment cutting across Arizona. With its cliffs and desert, it's real eye-candy country, and Fossil Creek, along with its associated canyon and waterfalls, is among the big sights of the area. It's home to rare reptiles and amphibians, migratory birds, and hawks, and some charismatic mammals like otters and beavers. The surrounding Fossil Springs Wilderness Area boasts 11,500 acres of lush, riverside habitat and desert shrub, with more than 100 species of trees, plus some wildlife big-hitters like black bear, mountain lion, and elk.
