Located in the gated community of Starwood, in the very northeast corner of Pinetop, this vacation retreat is about as close to the Tonto National Forest as you can get, while still maintaining the safety and security of a gated community. Literally walk to the entrance of the forest in minutes.

As you enter this summer getaway, through the nearly 4’ wide ponderosa pine door, you are surrounded by exquisite knotty pine floors.

About Carolyn and Aric Clawson

Our names are Aric and Carolyn - we are native Arizonans who love buying, selling and renovating properties. We have 3 kids, one in college and 2 in high school. Our favorite travelling destinations are the wine country north of the Bay area, Puerto Penasco Mexico ( where we own a beachfront rental property), and in the summer, Pinetop Arizona. Our most recent travel experience was a cruise that took us to Aruba, the Panama Canal, Cartagena Columbia, Costa Rica, and Nassau. The more we travel, the more we come to appreciate Arizona, and the wide variety of climates, activities and amenities that are available to the people who live and visit here.

Carolyn and Aric Clawson purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Carolyn and Aric Clawson chose Pinetop-Lakeside

We were invited by friends several years ago to stay at a cabin in Pinetop for a week. During that stay we just fell in love with Pinetop Country Club and most Importantly Starwood Estates. We loved the newer home amenities and the gated entrance. The beautiful walking areas cool pine breeze and summer rains hooked us immediately. The area has golf courses, horse back riding, lakes, hiking and biking trail and much more.

What makes this cabin unique

This home is unique in that it is a split floor plan, with large, soaring ceilings, that provide a light and airy feeling. the materials and decorating impart a wonderful cabin feel, with wood and stone perfectly integrated throughout.

At the time we bought, our kids were younger and the gated community and almost no traffic (there are only 7 houses on our street) allowed the kids to play and run free in the front and back yard.

The Pinetop / lakeside area has a wealth of activities in the summer, and the shops, stores, movie theaters, restaurants are numerous and enjoyable. The weather is perfect for golf and more golf, and there are many art and music festivals and events throughout the summer. There is even the Hun- Dah Casino close by, lots of fun!

Finally, everything you need or want is in close proximity, particularly the Tonto National Forest, whose entrance is less than 1/4 mile from our house. The weather is perfect in the summer and allows for hiking, biking, and any number of outdoor activities to be enjoyed.

The nicest cabin I have ever rented. Would definitely rent again!

  • 5 of 5

This was a clean, spacious cabin. The back porch and yard were beautiful. We enjoyed having our morning coffee and listening to the birds out on the porch. Quite neighborhood. I have rented cabins in Pinetop for the last 6-8 years n this is by far the nicest. Would definitely rent again. Scale from 1-10 (10being top) "10"

Awesome place

  • 5 of 5

Second time we have visited the property but only the first time we stayed there ourselves. Only downside was no snow, but that's the weather's fault. Fantastic cabin, lovely and warm, everything you need to cook and keep yourselves entertained, with sunrise ski resort 30 minutes away, and shops nearby. We took the master suite for ourselves, which was luxurious. Will be coming back every year from now on!

Beautiful cabin in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cabin for a weekend ski trip to sunrise. As soon as we arrived, we walked into a very cozy and already warmed up cabin. Carolyn and Aric are extremely accommodating and made sure we had all information regarding the cabin prior to arriving. They provided detailed instructions for check in and check out, which was great. There was a slight misunderstanding with how to dispose of the trash prior to departure but Carolyn handled that in an incredibly professional and kind manner. Everything we needed to make this a great experience was already there for us and we will definitely be coming back in the future.
