About Don & Candy Brooks

We have been married 40 yrs and have resided in this area for 38 yrs and loved every minute of it! We have traveled extensively throughout this country & worldwide, but have not found any place we would rather call home!

Don & Candy Brooks purchased this cottage in 1994

Why Don & Candy Brooks chose Payson

Fresh Air, Fun Times, and Friendship!

  • 5 of 5

Oh my! Where do I begin?? My husband and I spent 10 days at A Shore Thing and what a wonderful 10 days it was. Candy met us upon our arrival and helped us settle in. The cottage is absolutely adorable with everything you need to feel right at home. The countryside is breathtaking as we explored Payson, Pine/Strawberry and Star Valley, and the restaurants and Tap Rooms we encountered along the way were pretty good too . . . BBQ, Pizza, Italian and a good 'ole country breakfast, to mention a few. We were lucky to be in town during the County Fair, and Saturday's Farmer's Market (behind Chili's) where we picked up all sorts of edible goodies! We enjoyed antiquing and visual reminders of our own childhood. Cocktails on the deck surrounded by Candy's beautiful garden, hummingbirds and the sounds of nature. One evening, on our way back to the cottage, we came face-to-face with a beautiful deer who was statuesque and AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL!! We enjoyed our time with Don and Candy learning about their travels and time spent in the area, but the big night was Payson Idol competitions at The Elk's Lodge. We enjoyed the competition (although we got there a little late) and Friday night Karaoke which followed. Payson has talent is all I've got to say!! Everyone we encountered was as friendly as can be and we walked away with many new friends. The pace is relaxed and very low-key, exactly what we were looking for, so if that's what you have in mind for your next getaway, this is the place for you!! Thank you Don and Candy for a lovely stay!

Owner's Response: Jana and Gil, WOW ! Thank you for your Great review. I hope we can live up to it. You both hit it off really well with the locals.....but I'm sure that's the case wherever you go. Frank made it in to Payson Idol , so you'll have to return New Years to watch the results....We hope to see you again before that. Don and Candy

It's a Shore Thing

  • 5 of 5

The property was immaculate and artfully decorated. The owners were charming and made

us feel right at home. We enjoyed having breakfast and lunch on the patio -away from

the Phoenix heat! Would highly recommend this for a 3 day getaway or a week stay, as we

did.

Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Don and Candy made our short getaway very relaxing. They helped us get settled in and answered our questions and they were available if needed. We loved all the special goodies that were left for us to enjoy. The cottage was clean and well stocked with what we needed for our stay. Hope to be back real soon.

Wonderful little cabin

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent three lovely days at this wonderful cabin. The cabin had everything that you could think of that you may need. There was a nice eating area outside under the trees. Unfortunately due to the rain, we were only able to use it once. We look forward to returning in the near future.

Charming cottage

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a perfect get-a-way, look no further. We had a delightful stay.

Don and Candy are warm and friendly. We were provided with all the essentials and

welcomed with gifts and a nice bottle of wine. I would gladly recommend ' A Shore Thing' .

Looking forward to our next visit.
