Our family comes first, then friends (also 4 legged variety) followed closely by golf (him) bridge( us) reading (us); Travel (Our planes head mainly to towns where kids & friends live) Next, Remodeling--him, work--her, inspiration. Club & volunteer stuff-- him HO, her KD; TV--him, sports. her drama!

Conrad Nelke purchased this cabin in 1985

Why Conrad Nelke chose Arizona

We wanted a place away from the valley where all of the kids and grandkids could come and be together. We found the area while visiting friends in Whispering Pines in a gorgeous snowstorm the day after a warm Thanksgiving in Phoenix. It seemed like heaven to be able to share both worlds with only a two hour ride. We wanted in! We had the shell built and completed the house ourselves. We picked chandeliers from Mexico, rocks for the fireplace from all over the country, and furnishings from family pieces, 'gently used' and even broke down and bought a lot. It works as 'eclectic to the max,' The views in this area belong to God--we just bought here so we could share them. There is a feeling in the air here that brings out the best in people which makes them happy.

What makes this cabin unique

Inviting friends here for a day or a weekend is a joy for us & them. Everyday cares fall away as the pines, oaks, and juniper give the air a certain mountain tang. Actually, The 5,400 feet elevation makes the nights 25 degrees and days 15 degrees cooler than valley temperatures. Here, we have seasons that give us soft spring rain, exciting summer electriical storms, vivid autumn leaves, and frost, snow, & earmuffs.

We never tire of seeing the glorious views of 40 miles of Rim that we share with God. Sunsets from the north deck are amazing, and the experience of watching a storm approach through the valley until the new rain finally drives you from your nest in the porch swing inside--unforgettable. We have had many memorable family reunions here--there have been two Golden Wedding celebrations, a Honeymoon--the magic is just beginning. You won't want to forget your time here. Bring your best camera.

Very comfortable place to stay with good views and lots of room.

  • 5 of 5

The owner Conrad maintained great contact and gave good directions. The cabin was spacious and met all of our needs. We brought up our family and extended family. All twelve of us were very comfortable. Two of the bedrooms two have balconies with awesome views of the forest. There we deer on the property the first evening we arrived. The basement was great. The kids played ping pong and had plenty of space to hang out together. The property is close to small creeks and not too far from town. Perfect family get-a-way. Thanks Conrad!

Great Location with Beautiful Views

  • 5 of 5

This house was just what we needed for a weekend getaway. It has 4 bedrooms with an extra sleeping area in the basement/game room. It was large enough for everyone to have their own space and small enough for a group of 9 friends to have a great weekend playing games, relaxing, watching football, BBQing, and laughing a lot. It has all of the comforts you need in a great secluded area with beautiful views.

Peaceful Happy Place!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent four nights at the cabin at the end of July. When we pulled up, there was a family of four elk standing right in the driveway! We spent most of our time out on the deck sitting in the swings, taking in the beautiful views. We went on hikes every afternoon and rainstorms rolled in almost every evening. It was just a very relaxing and happy gathering with my family. The big kitchen table sat all of us comfortably, and we even ate dinner out on the deck the one evening it didn't rain. The steps to the basement were a little tricky at first, but before too long, even my three year old was managing them easily. My kids have been cooped up indoors most of the summer (Phoenix heat), so for them, the beautiful weather and nature made the trip! The first place they would go in the morning was out onto the deck. I would definitely go back again! Thank you so much for sharing your lovely cabin with us.

A relaxing and refreshing time

  • 4 of 5

What an awesome place. A great review of the forest and Rim. Peaceful and pleasant all around. A great setting for family vacation. Proximity to East Verde River recreation areas was a highlight for the grand children. 17 nights of great enjoyment.
