About Carolynne and Jeff Callan

Jeff is an IT professional and author. Carolynne is a very grateful stay at home mom, formerly a nurse. Our primary home is in the valley. We are blessed with 3 wonderful children & a log cabin in Payson!

Carolynne and Jeff Callan purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Carolynne and Jeff Callan chose Arizona

We fell in love with Payson the first time we visited. The Blissful Bear Log Cabin is enchanting, feels like you have travelled far away although is only 1 1/2 hours from the Valley & an average of 20 degrees cooler.

What makes this cabin unique

Close to town yet rural peaceful feeling. Child friendly with fully enclosed yard. Newly renovated, clean and cozy.

Cozy but has limitations

  • 3 of 5

The cabin was very clean and inviting at first glance. The slide and enclosed backyard are perfect for kids. There is only one TV in the cabin and it's on the first floor, but there are lot's of toys for kids to play with. The It's definitely not made for tall people. The ceilings are very low. If you are above 6 feet tall, watch out for the ceiling fans. The internet and cell service is non-existent, especially when it rains. The owners mentioned that WiFi does not support "streaming or gaming, but "sufficient for email and web browsing", I strongly disagree. I contacted the owners and they let me use the home phone for making calls. As far as internet, going to downtown Payson or Pine library are the your only options. So instead of spending time with my kids while working from home, like I planned, I ended up going to places where I had internet service to work. The neighbors are very friendly, except for the one next door with a yapping dog. Also, if you are visiting in July or August, the East Verde River that runs through there is very muddy due to mansoons. Overall it's nice, but has limitations.

Clean cabin

  • 3 of 5

we were able to rent for three nights between two other parties. the place was very clean. fortunately, there was only three in our party. it was a hot, high ninety day when we arrived. the air conditioner was struggling to keep the downstairs at 81. the two upstairs bedrooms were not useful as the heat was unbearable due to poor air. i was finally able to get the downstairs temps down after discovering that the two couches were positioned directly over the air registers in the floor, blocking cool air. since upstairs was out of commission, my nine year old grandson slept on the sofa while the wife and i took the downstairs bedroom. if you are planning on needing the two upstairs bedrooms, i would book your trip outside of the summer season. Another thing, if you are 6-3 or taller, consider renting another place. the two downstairs ceiling fan blades are approximately that height, so you risk losing some hair or worse. Owners warn of not using more than one appliance (toaster, toaster oven, or coffee pot) in the kitchen at a time for fear of blowing a fuse. And there is no outlet in the single bathroom.

But we were able to adapt and had a pleasant stay. we were only there for breakfast and sleeping.

Perfect for kids!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cabin. What made it even better for us was all of the things for the kids to do. The location is amazing as well.

Cute, comfy cabin!

  • 4 of 5

Very clean little place! All the essentials and fenced yard- safe for dogs and children. Screen door was broken so we couldn't get a cross-breeze unfortunately. Wish there was a hose to clean off porch and furniture, too dirty to sit on to enjoy the cooler weather or eat outside. Upstairs window a/c unit really not the best fit and so we stayed downstairs due to the heat during this time of year with temps in triple digits.

Overall, our stay was pleasant for the price and we were pleased. Would stay here again once those minor things are corrected.

Cute little house in beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

Stayed with 3 kids and our dog. Cabin was clean and nicely set up. The yard was great for our dog. A few minor issues came up and the owners responded very promptly with text. Would definitely repeat visit.
