About LINDEN OLSON

We are partially retired farmers from extreme southwest MN. While on vacation in AZ we found this area to be a refreshing change from the grassland prairie we have lived in for most of our lives. Warmer in the winter than MN and cooler in the summer than southern AZ this scenic area offers many attractions and activities for those who like hiking, sightseeing, shopping, rock climbing, simple relaxation or any number of other individual or family interests.

LINDEN OLSON purchased this cabin in 2012

Why LINDEN OLSON chose Arizona

Nestled among tall Ponderosa pines our home offers something for everyone whether it is for rest, relaxation and rejuvenation; a get away or escape; or a cozy place curl up with a good book or to come back to after a day of hiking in a forest, desert or mountain setting; antiquing; horseback riding; mountain biking; skiing; boating; shopping or sightseeing. Eat in one of a variety of good area restaurants or prepare a meal using our fully equipped kitchen and/or gas grill. Get a refreshing night of sleep in a good bed in a quiet area. If you are in the right place at the right time you may get a glimpse of some of the elk, deer, squirrels, birds, coyotes, javelinas or other wildlife that inhabit the area. Enjoy antiquing or/and looking at artistic creations in Strawberry, Pine, and Payson. Want more? Take a day trip to Sedona or Jericho. Need something? A scenic 19 mile drive down Hwy 87 lies Payson, AZ, a town of 17,000 that offers most of the services of a large city including shops of all kinds, antiquing, golfing and seasonal activities. Want to beat the heat in the summer? Strawberry is about 20 degrees cooler than the valley around Phoenix.

What makes this cabin unique

Spacious, open floor plan, floor to ceiling gas fireplace, wood fireplace (wood included), large floor to ceiling windows, great natural lighting and view of Strawberry mountain, well furnished kitchen with island, wireless internet, Dish TV, and much more. You bring the food and personal items and we furnish the rest.

Large family enjoyed our getaway

  • 5 of 5

We came to Strawberry hoping for snow, disappointed there, but in every other way we were delighted with our stay. Ours was only 3 nights. I would recommend longer, because the house is so comfortable, The kitchen could not have been better. I loved having a gas stove (I don't at home :-( ). In all it was a wonderful though little getaway at a great price. Thanks for it all! I definitely will do it again.

Absolutely stunning

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at a lot of cabins over the years and Strawberry Haven is definitely one of our favorites! The home and furniture are rustic and fit the motif of Cabin in the Woods very well. We were there just before Christmas and there was a Christmas tree in the living room which was perfect for our occasion!

The cabin is easy to get it and not far from a few markets in case you forget something. The kitchen was well stocked with cookery and the bathrooms had plenty of towels.

We loved the large windows of an A Frame cabin and Strawberry Haven was no exception. We will stay again!

1st Cabin Rental :)

  • 5 of 5

This was our first cabin rental and it has been the best experience we could ask for. The cabin is very warm and cozy and equipped with anything one may need for a comfortable stay. Everyone in our group loved and and will both recommend it and go back once we get a chance. Lots of space, clean, comfortable. Feels like a family cabin and cant ask for more.

Church Board Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This property met all our needs for our Church Board Retreat from the 22nd to the 24th of September. Kitchen was well stocked and we brought enough food to feed an army. Charlie was great, introducing us to the house and talked lots about the Fossil Creek area. Weather was perfect and felt wonderful to get away from the bustle of Phoenix to the quiet of Strawberry. It had enough seating for all of us as we processed through all the material Pastor had prepared and had a lot of good discussion. Only complaint we had was forgot mustard for the Brats and the cabin could use a half bath. Last morning was a bit nippy according to the person who slept out there. But we all enjoyed ourselves and had fun and learned a lot. Special thanks to Charlie and Linden, our stay was great! We will see about planning another retreat next year!

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We shared this cabin with two other families and everyone really liked the place. It was clean, comfortable, there was plenty of room and it was very well stocked with everything you could possibly need and more. The kitchen had a large crock-pot, waffle maker, griddle and even a wok and baking sheets, although we kept things simple and primarily used the propane grill. The wrap-around porch, with a variety of seating options, quickly became my home away from home under the cool breeze of the trees. The front yard was spacious enough for the the kids to play catch while we kept and eye on them from the porch and the back yard had a cool apprentice for racing croquet balls. It was fun to explore the area too. We took nice walks through the neighborhood and saw horses, other farm animals and even a zebra!

The owner was quick to reply to my inquiries and our local host (Charlie) was a really nice guy who shared a lot of helpful information about the area. I would definitely recommend this property.

If you like hiking, I would highly recommend Tonto Natural Bridge. There are a variety of trails here, so whether you are looking for a challenging hike or more of walk through nature, you will be pleased. Both the natural bridge and waterfall were amazing!
