Bedrooms 3
Space 1,400 sq ft
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

3 bedroom, 2 bath 1400 square foot cabin with river and waterfall views

Rustic log sided cabin at the foot of the Mogollon Rim on bank of E Verde close to the river's beginning springs. Cabin sits on 3/4 acre lot with about 250 feet of river frontage. This 3 bedroom cabin fits 6 comfortably. Picture windows in family, dining room, kitchen, and sun room all face the river, which flows all year. Additional water releases into the river during the summer months increases the river water flow, which lowers river air temperatures several

degrees. Photos shown are the natural river flow. Front patio seating with chiminea. Back of cabin has a fire pit and propane barbeque with stone seating facing river's edge. Back of cabin lot is fenced, with gate leading to several hiking trails. Nearby dirt trails allow for quads, off roading, and hiking. Satellite TV with DVD player, Internet, and Magic Jack internet phone, with flat screen TV's. Surrounded by National Forest. There are no trout additions by the hatchery this far up the river, so please the fishing policy is only catch and release. About a two mile hike to the E Verde River's originating springs. No glass containers are allowed near the river's edge. Always please watch your children near water.

Why Chuck Pfeifer chose Payson

Located at 6000 foot elevation on the river's edge in a hollow, this has been a great get away from the valley summer heat, a cool 25-30 degrees air difference than the valley. One can play in the cold river's water to cool down.

What makes this cabin unique

River visible by more than half of the cabin's windows.

What a beautiful setting! Everything about our trip was fantastic. The cabin was perfectly suited for us to enjoy our girls weekend away. As most of us are campers we were happy to have all of the amenities (including lots of ICE) available to us. Kitchen was stocked with amenities, bathrooms had towels, beds were very comfortable and everything is labeled so you know just where to find whatever it is you need! Chuck and the neighbors even went as far as to provide us with extra bottled water to insure that we were comfortable with our stay. Everyone was just so nice! Temperature was great, setting was fantastic, the cabin was perfect and all in all everything was, well, just lovely!! Thank you for a fabulous weekend away!!!

Incredible Natural Setting & House

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I totally loved staying 2 weeks in July at this house on the river with beautiful waterfalls. Every window looks out on green trees and vegetation; many have river views, including from the dining room and sun room tables. Some mornings I walked along the little path below the house to sit right in front of the waterfall to paint it. Hearing the waterfall and river at night as we went to sleep was especially lovely.

Many times we hiked up the trail that begins about a mile from the house.The house was very comfortable for us with lots of seating, a couple of recliners, an excellent mattress and easy facilities for cooking. We shopped once in Payson and a week later in Pine, which had a cute little pizza restaurant that we enjoyed.

We have rented many houses on VRBO but this was our favorite. We are looking forward to a return visit.

Owner's Response: Thank you and your husband for the great review. It makes me happy to know you both thoroughly enjoyed your visit, particularly having traveled all the way from Sacramento. The Highline Trail you mentioned seems to be a popular hike. Sure would like to see your waterfall paintings. You are certainly welcomed back. Hope to see you as early as next year.
