About the property

Experience a mountain cabin get-away bordering on National Forest

Do you look forward to getting away? How about a mountain retreat only 4 hours drive from Tucson or Phoenix? The route is one of Arizona's most scenic highways.

If you are interested in finding a place that will transport your mind to a calm, relaxed, meditative state, then read on.

With virtually no light pollution, the night skies are breathtaking. You can walk out the back deck and enjoy a hot cup of coffee while looking out on National Forest. You might observe grazing elk, mule deer, turkey or rocky mountain big horn sheep.

High elk cabin is all about an experience. If you want to have an active day, hike trails directly from the cabin or you can jump in a car and 5 minutes later be fishing. Keep it going with a mountain bike ride taking off from the cabin (if you road bike, the routes are awesome and less than a 5 minute car ride to pavement).

If instead, you prefer a recharge day, get up early take a walk or jog, then return to a relaxed breakfast on either the front or back decks. Start a fire, read a book, play board games with friends and family.

Speaking of the fireplace, an important part of the High Elk cabin experience is active participation by all your senses. We only provide juniper wood and if you have never smelled juniper, think of the incredible aroma of cedar. It's an additional part of the experience that will make your stay memorable.

High Elk cabin is special. Located at 8,500 feet in elevation means you will never need air conditioning! It is surrounded by a pristine pine forest that has a heavenly gentle breeze sound rustling through the trees. It is on 1 acre with lots of privacy. You will love this 1334 sq. foot of living space cabin. Enjoy the 2 bedrooms, loft and 2 full bath's. The master bedroom is conveniently located on the main floor and has a Queen size bed. The other first floor bedroom has two twin beds. The loft has a Queen bed along with a futon (double size bed).

If you are interested in truly getting away and either relaxing completely or mixing in fun activities with plenty of free time to decompress then High Elk cabin is the experience that will ensure you return again.

About Dave

I bought this cabin in 2008 when my wife and two kids lived in Tucson My wife and I grew up in Wisconsin. We love the outdoors and this cabin.

Dave purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Dave chose Greer

Driving to these mountains, you will ascend through multiple biomes and microclimates ultimately arriving at a beautiful cabin located at 8,500 feet. This is a place to get-away from the desert heat. Summer high temperatures in the 70's. Even if it is not incredibly hot in the valley, Greer is a unique experience in Arizona.

What makes this cabin unique

Great hiking, mountain/road biking and fishing. From the back deck, looking out on National Forest land, you can see elk and mule deer grazing in the evenings.
