This is family living at its best, come make wonderful memories!

We are also pet friendly ! What kind of vacation would it be if you have to leave your pet in the heat?

Torreon is a gated golf community developed by Desert Troon to accomodate the Phoenix (3 hour drive)and Tucson people (4 hour drive)looking for cooler summer temperatures.It is Arizona,sunny 350 days a year but here in the White Mountains (6,500 ft elevation) we rejoice in summer temperatures rarely reaching the 90's. With no humidity or no bugs, it is the best weather in the United States!

We know the importance of your 4 legged family member so we are pet-friendly, but beware Torreon does not allow fences so there is no containment.

The garage holds 2 cars and car rental & adult bikes are available. Great trails abound in surrounding state forests or walk and bike within the gated community. 5 minute WALKING distance to Clubhouse, Family Center, tennis, pool,hot tub, basketball, sand volleyball, fishing and Fitness Center. Two world class 18 Troon Golf courses, great restaurant & bar on site. There are riding trails behind Torreon on state lands, horse boarding facilities or arena and group horseback riding lessions.

What more could you ask for? We are in a fabulous location for both adults and children, beautiful setting, safe (24/7 roaming security),magnificent weather. Safeway grocery store is a 5 minute drive. Drive to Show Low (5 minutes) or Pinetop/Lakeside (20 minutes) for restaurants, shopping, antiquing. Come discover the White Mountains of Arizona and make everyone's summer memorable.

For winter guests, the Sunrise ski resort man-makes snow for a full season of skiing, snowboarding or snowmobiling. Sunrise is a 45 minute drive from our cabin, many rental stores along the way as well as at the base of the mountain. 4 wheel drive car is recommended.

About Stacey Ruggaard, Torreon vacation rental specialist

We lived in Fountain Hills AZ for three years and drove to the White Mountains (2 1/2 hours) for respite from the summer heat. We fell in love with the mountain views, the cool temperatures, 4 seasons and all the outdoor activities.After living abroad for 20 years, we found our place of peace in the White Mountains and built our dream loghome.The four of us and dog Jack live in this loghome year round except for the summer and 2 weeks around Christmas when we travel.

Stacey Ruggaard, Torreon vacation rental specialist purchased this lodge in 2006

We accept well behaved pets, but remember there are no enclosures in Torreon and there is a leash law.As with most private custom homes, this rental does not include access to the golf courses. There is a trial membership option available (inquire at the Torreon Golf Club) for summer golfing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What can we say? Wow! We have spent the last 10 years at different locations and this rates as one of the best. Lots of games of ping pong and pool and nights at the dining table playing games, made it a week we won't soon forget. Grandma's most favorite part: she has all her boys and grandkids together for the first time in years. Altogether we could not have picked a better place to spend this Christmas season. Plenty of room to get away and to get together! Snow appeared on Christmas Eve and the kids saw Santa Clause putting gifts under the tree and to say the least, all our wishes and dreams came true this Christmas 2012.

Superb Rental Experience

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfectly managed luxury rental that still retains a cozy cabin environment surrounded by the forest that is perfect for groups or families that simply want more space and unlimited options for making sure everyone has a good time. The homes bedrooms are spread out for privacy especially with the private bathrooms and extra baths on each level. Then there are many spaces for members of your group to spread out (movie theater room, seperate gameroom with pool table and foosball plus a bar area, ping pong on covered patio, massive deck with a safe firepit, loft, etc...). Everyone can then enjoy the large kitchen, dining room and central living room in the evening. Excellent property and rental experience all around.

As advertised. The owners take great pride in their home and it shows in every room. The home came with EVERYTHING except your own clothes and food. The owners pay close attention to detail and the house is perfect. Even the light switches are labeled so you don't have to figure out what switch turns on which light. Plenty of space for large family's and places where everyone can gather to socialize as well as places to be alone if that's what you wanted to do. There wasn't one thing I would change...the from the garage, laundry room, kitchen, home theater and downstairs game room, there were many other rooms that we utilized at some point during our stay. I will definitely stay there again when we decide to head north. The home has a WOW factor and yet was cozy enough for a family to be together. Let's not forget the outdoor space....INCREDIBLE!

This property was very very nice. Exactly as we expected with beautiful views in the gated community of Torreon

The property was very accommodating with everything you would need for the stay. Specific directions to get there including gate codes and different functions of the property.

Stacey was very accommodating and easy to contact. Any concerns or questions were addressed promptly.

I would definitely stay at this property again in the future or any other property that Stacey managed.

This Property Far Exceeded My Expectations, As Did The Service & Follow-Up By Ms. Ruggard

  • 5 of 5

My family and our friends recently stayed at the Shaggy Bark property in Torreon and it was simply amazing. We had some kids with us, so naturally they were excited to see the theatre room with the big screen, and play pool. Well I can tell you this, it did not disappoint them. They played pool, watched tv, listened to the stereo, they played pingpong, foosball and well basically slept in that room and the downstairs. It was great for them. For us, we enjoyed sitting on the upstairs deck and enjoying the tabletop fire and the views. I was incredibly impressed by all the little nuances that the owners thought of that made life easier and just like home. Any cookware we needed, gas stove, coffee maker, plus a garage full of tools for when I needed to fix my snowboard binding. The downstairs bathroom had a sauna that my family got to enjoy, and I soaked in a big claw foot type bathtub and read a book after a long day on the slopes. Plenty of wood for the fireplace was provided, a bbq grill which we enjoyed, and amazing features like heated floors and an epic copper basin in the kitchen made me not want to go home. The property was very clean and well maintained. Sheets and pillows were clean and smelled wonderful and the mattresses were very comfortable. Stacey provides a map of the Torreon roads and be sure to keep it in the car for the first few trips out cause it can be a bit confusing. Lots of turns in there and it all kind of looks the same. (may have just been me tho). We also went to the clubhouse and enjoyed the massive hot tub. Even did a little polar bear club jump into the adjacent pool, then back into the hot tub. Incredible! All in all, we would love to go back and in all likelihood, will be doing so this fall. The pictures and description just don't quite do it justice. Truly breathtaking home and an incredible vacation for our family. Cheers~

Amazing weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing weekend! The cabin is beautiful and cozy, we really enjoy cooking in that spacious kitchen, the movie theater was big hit. We had a great time exploring nature during our bike ride. The family center has a basketball court ,tennis court as well as a nice playground. My son didn't want to the cabin. Stacey , the owner, is super helpful and very welcoming. We felt like home. Thanks so much Stacey

We were a groups of families who went up to enjoy the mountain weather. Pictures do this cabin no justice! Just walking around you notice how much detail the owner has placed into decorating, makes you feel cozy and at home! There was so much to do for kids and adults alike and plenty of space for everyone to gather together on the patio or in front of the fireplace, or go off into a separate area and enjoy quality time alone with just their family. The kitchen was extremely nice and anything you needed to make your stay the best was available. Stacey was super friendly and helpful. We would definitely come back to enjoy the peaceful serenity we felt here!
