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.

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!

fabulous

  • 5 of 5

We had a party of 11 people. 10 adults, one child. We had a fantastic time. The house was gorgeous and was extremely well equipped with everything we needed. We had a blast. We went hiking, to the goat farm, and there was a festival in Pine. Some of us went to see the Tonto Natural Bridge. We had a campfire every night with semores and used the outdoor grill to make our favorite meals. We had space to play our outdoor games and plenty of parking for all 5 cars. I was impressed with the accomodations. My favorite thing about the house was the wrap around porch. You could literally be outside all day long. Charlie was a great resource! Oh and did I mention the weather was perfect!

Strawberry Haven

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely spacious cabin, with all the amenities of home, a beautiful view and just a zip down the road for groceries or a meal out. We saw two elk in the yard our first morning and it really set the tone for the stay.The host was there when needed and answered all questions we had and gave us a quick run down of the property and then was gone. There was room for some people to play cards at the table, while others ate at the bar and still others watched tv or found a quiet corner to read a book. The deck is lovely for a glass of wine in the evening or a great place to watch day fade to night in the pines. We look forward to staying here again!

Perfect home away from home without the extreme Phoenix heat!

  • 5 of 5

Great spacious home with huge windows and lots of light. Relax on the wrap around deck with cool breezes, gorgeous views of Ponderosa pines, and birds singing, while you drink your coffee, read or just relax and unwind. Sleep peacefully with the windows open in the most comfortable beds ever. Spend the day out walking or hiking and check out the antique stores and gift shops with all their treasures. Use the fully equipped kitchen to prepare meals or visit some of the many restaurants nearby. Have some fun at the casino in nearby Payson. The fudge and cheese spreads from the goat farm down the road are awesome. I cannot say enough great things about Linden Olson, the owner. He is so helpful and organized. They have things cataloged in a binder so you can find them. Great place to enjoy family, friends or take your bridge group. Experience this once and you will be making plans to return in the near future.
