This "Shore Thing" turned out to be a "sure thing". Just returned home from a 3 day stay at this property. This site worked out even better than we anticipated thanks to the generous hospitality displayed by the owners, Don and Candy, who invited us to a BBQ / Karaoke party they were hosting at their adjacent property one night of our stay. They also provided us with a few "treats" to further help us enjoy our stay.
The property works out perfectly for a couple as it is clean, quiet and has all the amenities you need for a short stay. Four miles away from Payson, you have the chance to stay out in the forest in a small housing development, but still have grocery stores & restaurants close by. The property is also within walking distance of a small year-round flowing river.
The kitchen and the outdoor BBQ are well equipped to allow for meal preparation onsite rather than going into town if you want to just enjoy the clean, cool outdoor air.
Unless you are looking for extravagance, this is the perfect spot for a couple and you won't find any easier owners to work with than Don and Candy.
"It's a Shore Thing" was a wonderful get away for my husband and I! The property was so comfortable, very clean, and perfect for our needs. Don and Candy were so friendly, but not in an intrusive way. My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary and Don & Candy went above and beyond to make that special. We appreciated their friendliness and suggestions for restaurants, and the knowledge that if we needed anything, all we had to do was ask. We would highly recommend this property to our friends and family. We will definitely stay again, and are hoping it will be sooner rather than later!!
We had a lovely stay at "A Shore Thing". We had such a nice time in Payson. Don and Candy provide a wonderful, comfortable and charming place to stay. We were pleasantly surprised in every way! Thank you so much for everything Don and Candy!
Clean, comfortable getaway from the hustle and bustle and summer heat of Phoenix. The charming nautical themed property was spotlessly clean and the bed was perfect for me. Had AC but we didn't use it at all, just opened the windows at night. Candy and Don were gracious hosts presenting us with thoughtful gifts. Nice touch. Felt like a bed and breakfast but it's not. Location is close to Payson, Tonto Natural Bridge, Fossil Creek trail, the Rim Lakes and acre upon acre of cool Ponderosa pine forest. It's hard to imagine a such cool, beautiful pine forest only 90 minutes from the 100 plus temperatures of the Valley of the Sun.
Our experience at A Shore Thing was great in every way. The cottage was terrific, the hosts even better. The cottage was clean, really cleverly decorated, each day we would notice something new, and very comfortable. Don and Candy were the most gracious hosts and went well beyond the expected to make our stay exceptional. In all of our travels, no one has ever been so kind, considerate or worked so hard to make our stay a success. For a sure thing, anyone visiting the Payson area would be wise to consider a stay at A Shore Thing!
Our stay at A Shore Thing was wonderful. Even though we picked the hottest week to be in Payson this year Don and Candy had the air conditioning going for us when we arrived along with a great bottle of wine and some other goodies. I won't give it away because you need to find out for yourselves!
Their cottage is beautiful inside and out. We will definitely be staying at A Shore Thing again.
So very close to so many amenities, but it feels like you have slipped away from everywhere! Perfect place to relax or be adventurous! located in the center of Arizona @5000' elevation, we offer the best spot to venture out to many exciting locations. Or...relax!
