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 2013

Why LINDEN OLSON chose Arizona

Nestled among tall Ponderosa pines this cozy log cabin 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

Wood fireplace, a view of Strawberry mountain, well-furnished kitchen, wireless internet, Dish TV, and much more. You bring the food and personal items and we furnish the rest.

Very comfortable, clean, and cozy cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for our adult children to stay in because we didn't have room at our home in Strawberry during our wedding weekend. They loved the home and just raved about the comfortable beds. The gentleman host named Charlie met me at the home and greeted me with a tour and instructions. He was very kind and knowledgeable about the area. We definitely will recommend this home to friends and family in the future!

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently enjoyed a 3 night getaway to Elk Haven on Bay. The directions we were given by the host made it so easy to locate. We were greeted by a lovely gentleman, Charlie, who showed us around the property. The cabin was incredibly well-stocked, comfortable and cozy. Both the interior and grounds were meticulously maintained. We enjoyed several hikes in the area and a trip to the goat farm for cheese and chocolate!

I would definitely recommend this property to anyone who wants to escape city life!

Super Clean, Beautiful and a wonderful Place away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed out stay here. I was very impressed with the cleanliness no spiders / bugs dust or anything. Everything you need is here, it is beautiful outside and peaceful. The beds were very comfortable and I was thrilled that the TV was a smart TV (we could watch our own Netflix at night). Would highly recommend staying here for rest and relaxation!!

Beyond our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful cabin located on a prime corner lot in Strawberry right on Fossil Creek Road. This family has taken much pride and care in making sure everything you might need will be on property for you.

The deck is amazing with a prime view overlooking the neighbors ranch so you will get to see some horses and possibly other critters roaming about if your lucky. There is a full size bbq that we took advantage of as well.

We had plenty of beds for everyone that came along and everything was neat and cozy.

To top everything off, the owners take great pride in the area, they have a full notebook with ALL (NO JOKE) of the areas trails, attractions, restaurants, stores and any other valuable information you might need. I really would like to have a copy of that book just for the trail information and area attractions. I ad no idea there were Indian ruins up there too!

I was unaware that pets were allowed, I would have let my friend bring her pup if I did!

Thanks for a great stay, we hope to return soon!
