We have rented frequently through VRBO as we like to visit a variety of locations. This Happy Jack home was everything described and more. The home was a "home" with comfortable furnishings and appointments, it wasn't a "stripped rental" like some properties. There were thoughtful amenities like toiletries, chargers, clocks, kitchen spices and supplies. There were throw blankets, patio furniture, an outdoor fireplace and beautiful gas grill. We chose to relax and enjoy the beautiful wildlife and peaceful private views, however there is a pool table, air hockey table, dozens of board games, a telescope, horseshoe pit, cards, dice, video games, movies, etc. Basically, something for everyone's entertainment choice. We were very pleased and will definitely stay at this property again!
We just spent two very peaceful weeks in your cozy cabin in Happy Jack... needed to escape the heat and wanted to return to my "roots", having spent my childhood in the Pine-Strawberry area and at Knoll Lake. Loved revisiting this beautiful part of the Mogollon Rim. Happy Jack is quiet and we were thrilled to see that the property had so many beautiful pines on it. You're right, we couldn't even see our nearest neighbors! I was lucky enough to be up when the meteor showers were taking place and I must say, what a stage for that light show!
As far as amenitites, the cabin had everything we needed. There is an excellent grill for cookouts, and all of the appliances we needed to make some tasty dinners in the kitchen. The stove, microwave, and dishwasher are all brand new and worked great!
Beds: the beds were SUPER COMFY and the sheets were soft!! The king bed in the master suite upstairs is heaven, and we slept like babies!
Basement: Wow, what fun! Pool table, foosball, air hockey, nintendo, etc.... we had so much fun with our grandkids playing in the basement!
We watched the Olympics while we were at the cabin and it was great to be able to watch several different channels to get coverage... grateful for the satelite tv and the big screen!
Deck: in the early a.m. and the evening hours it was wonderful to sit out on the deck and watch the birds and squirrels.... during the heat of the August days it got too warm to sit out (the sun is intense even at 80 degrees up in the high country!), but fortunately for us the clouds were always moving in and out and we got many afternoon showers which just made it lovely.
Phone service: I have Verizon, and had VERY good service the whole trip. I also have a personal hotspot from Verizon for work, which allowed me to have internet service on my computer when I needed it.
Patricia, your email prior to our arrival was full of helpful and informative information with regard to our stay in your cabin. Any questions we might have had were definitely answered by referring back to that email, so thank you! And the few times I did need to reach you, either thru text or phone, you responded so promptly and helpfully! Thank you for everything, including the wonderful bottle of vino waiting for us at arrival!!! We loved it!
We definitely hope to come back to your lovely, comfy cabin again (soon!!) Thanks again for making our stay so perfect!
We enjoyed our stay at the Green's cabin. It had plenty of room, and was efficiently laid out. Loved relaxing on a spacious deck with a nice view of the forest. Although neighbors were around you could not see their cabins and rarely knew they were there. We are off-roaders, and enjoyed easy access to the forest trails. It was a great getaway from the desert heat.
We loved staying at the Happy Jack house. We had a great experience with younger kids. They enjoyed themselves and found things to do. It really makes you feel like you're in the middle of nowhere. Lots of amenities for the family really just had to bring groceries. The Super Mario was especially fun to play. Great grilling and kitchen area. We went to the creek that was close it was fun for the kids. I would recommend if you truly want to escape.
Communication and information from the owner is excellent! The cabin is located in a gated area north east of Pine/Strawberry and was under a 2 hour drive from our house in Anthem, so a perfect location. It is VERY quiet. You can't see any other house/cabin from the property and no cars driving past. The view is great as you look over a wooded hill and across several tree lined ridges.
Inside the cabin is everything you need. The game room has pool, fussball and air hockey, which were great, as well as another entertainment center. The main living room has a nice HD TV with DirectTv and Blu-ray player attached. The living room has ample comfortable seating and a Franklin stove fireplace. There are two sliding glass doors out onto a beautiful wrap around balcony that offers great views and lots of sun.
The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you might need for a week in terms of utensils and pans, coffee maker, toaster, etc...The microwave and dishwasher and ranger are all newer and stainless steal. The older fridge seems a little out of place and is a little noisy.
The upstairs master bedroom is huge. There is a master bath upstairs (large shower no tub) and full bath downstairs. They both have shampoo/conditioner/showergel dispensers built in. There are plenty of towels. I didn't see any tissues/Kleenex though.
Note that in the later summer months their is frequent monsoon storms in Arizona, especially in this area, and there was quite a bit of rain and lightning, but it was nice because it kept the temperature down in the 60s, which was wonderfully cool.
We saw "evidence" of deer around, but unfortunately did not see any deer or Elk.
For those truly wanting a beautiful quiet spot, this is it. You are a long way from any restaurants or gas stations or any other amenities, so plan accordingly.
There is good service from Verizon here, but the cabin does not have WiFi or a landline.
We can't wait to go back and to try it during different seasons!
Plan to reserve again next year. Feel right at home with the games, kitchen and relaxing view from the deck. Awesome grill and great setup for the batrooms, all you need.
Great to go up north and have an area for a horseshoe pit already.
