About Wes or Verla Dockter

My husband and I have been married over 40 years, proud parents to 2 children that have blessed us with 4 grandchildren. We love to travel and purchased a home in this lovely area in 2006. Our grandchildren call it our camper house. Now in 2014 we have purchased the home next to our 'camper House'. We have stayed in Vacation Rentals and have tried to include the things we have liked most into this vacation rental. If not let us know what we can improve on.

Wes or Verla Dockter purchased this house in 2014

Awesome place! Only one minor suggestion is that the fireplace was changed to stove and this wasn't in the photos. We couldn't use our wood inside the house.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed the home. The fireplace has been a pellet stove for years and the property description clearly says pellet stove, pellets are provided. It is a beautiful inset pellet stove and gives a very nice flame. We would love to provide wood burning but way too messy. We have a pot belly outside and provide the wood for that. Right now you would be running the air conditioner to cool while you did fireplace.

Our second stay at charming Holiday Cabin was another sucess.The owners renovated with laminate flooring and a new dining set,giving a fresh look without changing the vintage appeal.We were blessed with a dusting of snow on the second morning.We explorede the awsome trails leading from the picnic area before the entrance to East Verde Park

.Our dogs enjoyed the fenced in yard .I will tell you.....go for it.

Review for Holiday Hide Away Cabin in Payson, Arizona

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Holiday Hide Away Cabin in Payson, Arizona for Christmas weekend from December 25th - December 28th. It was great!!! Very relaxing to say the least! We went hiking at the Tonto Natural Bridge which is only a few miles north from where we were by the East Verde River. It was a bit windy on that Saturday, but we still had a great time. Did a bit of antiquing in some great shops called Tymeless Antiques in Pine. The owners of this cabin thought of everything including toothbrushes and toothpaste! They had a bowl on the dining room table with Pancake mix and maple syrup, along with popcorn, peanut brittle, and of course some wine. Very nice touches in their cabin including ground coffee with the coffee maker in the kitchen. Everything was very clean and well taken care of.

Even though Payson did not get any snow that Christmas weekend, it was still pretty cold, but the fireplace in the cabin was really nice. And, we even got to watch the Arizona Cardinals beat the Green Bay Packers in the main room of the cabin on the TV above the fireplace. We made some chili in the crockpot which really hit the spot while watching the game. Our little dog Max had a great time too.

They were lots of movies in their collection, and a dart board and billiards table on the lower level. My son also played some basketball outside in the driveway. The property is fenced in all around so it is very secure. There are stores nearby for groceries and some restaurants as well. We wanted to check out Fossil Creek, but the road was closed for some reason. We did however check out the Fossil Creek Creamery which is awesome. Homemade goat's milk fudges and cheeses and you can check out the goats and other animals that they have on the property.

All you have to do is bring your clothes and food. They have everything there for you. We highly recommend this property. Thanks Verna and Wes for a very nice, relaxing weekend in your cabin up North in Payson, Arizona!!! We will definitely be coming back in the near future!!!
