Pinetop-Lakeside was crowned “Best Cabin Region in the U.S.” by the readers of Cabin Life Magazine, beating out such locales as South Lake Tahoe in California and the Adirondacks of New York. It’s a well-deserved accolade: Roughly 50 alpine lakes lace the White Mountains region, which also sits on the largest stand of Ponderosa pines in the world. Our cabin is perched at a 7200-feet elevation, the air is crisp and clean, and summer high temperatures are typically 25 to 30 degrees cooler than Phoenix. But this once-sleepy town of 4,200 is waking up with an explosion of events and festivals, bars and restaurants, and even day spas.

About TJ & Amy Jones

We LOVE Pinetop and we are so excited to share our cabin with you. We purchased our cabin in 2006 to escape the Valley heat during the summer as often as we could and have loved every minute we've spent there. We loved Pinetop so much that we sold our Valley home and now live in Pinetop full time! Amy is originally from Wisconsin & TJ is from Indiana, so we really enjoy the change of seasons in Pinetop, even the snow. We have 4 daughters and 5 grandchildren. We hope you enjoy our little piece of Heaven as much as we have!

TJ & Amy Jones purchased this cabin in 2006

Why TJ & Amy Jones chose Pinetop

When we were looking for a cabin, we wanted something that exuded the charm and character of a country cabin. One look was all it took for us to know this was the place and we think you'll feel the same way! Step back in time! Amy has loved decorating our cabin so that it feels like you're walking into a magazine. We love that Pinetop is usually about 30 degrees cooler than the valley and we love the 4 seasons.

Surrounded by tall pines and oak trees, but not out in a secluded area. We appreciated the fact that we have neighbors who watch out for us and our cabin. The neighborhood is heavily wooded & quiet. The neighbors are extremely friendly....if you ever see them. It's the perfect place for total rest and relaxation!

What makes this cabin unique

We live nearby, but we like our guests to feel this is their "home away from home" so we will only come by if you need us!

Why Pinetop? We searched several mountain communities and Pinetop was the clear winner, hand's down. 30-35 degrees cooler than the Valley and 4 seasons complete with SNOW!

The feel of remote living, with all the other nearby amenities to enjoy, including restaurants, movies, shopping, grocers, fishing, hiking, biking....the list goes on!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We all agreed that this was a great relaxing vacation because your place is so awesome! We cannot thank you enough for the Christmas decorations and the flannel sheets, which we all loved! We cooked and walked, shared wine and talked. It was fantastic - Thank you again!

This cabin has it all! I spent a lot of time looking for a great vacation cabin in the Pinetop area. After reading all the other reviews I decided on Wapiti Pines and am so glad I did. Our family of 5 had a wonderful time. The location was the perfect “Home base” for all our activities. The cabin offers an inviting atmosphere as soon as you pull up with the beautiful flower garden that attracts many butterflies. The porch offers a relaxing area to read or just watch the hummingbirds, squirrels and chipmunks. The WiFi, television and games even kept our down time going. The decor and setup of the cabin is so charming. We loved every detail of this cabin and hope to visit again soon!

Absolutely stunning cabin with all the amenities you could ever think of. Oh, and did I mention it was super clean and super comfortable for two small families? Well, you should know that the owners of this place put a lot of thought into their rental for people from all over to stay and feel at home as soon as they enter the front door. With a fresh plate of chocolate chip cookies to welcome you when you arrive. They have brochures and information books for things to do around town and if you decide to go hiking on one of the trails, they give you a heads up of things to watch for.

I can comfortably say I’m pretty sure we used every inch of the cabin inside and outside. It is also close to charming stores in town and lakes should you want to fish or rent a boat. We did and loved it!

From the bottom of our hearts, from both families, we thank you so very much for this cherished memory we now have forever.

We look forward to renting from you again for sure!

Very Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was wonderful. Just what we were looking for to get away from the city. We enjoyed coffee on the patio in the morning while watching the birds and squirrels. The location was perfect for any activities that we wanted to do and the neighborhood was very quiet. Our kids took advantage of the large movie collection and the wifi worked well, so our teenager was happy. We truly enjoyed our stay. We will be back.

Quiet, rustic home in the Pines

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this home is fantastic. Beds are very comfortable, kitchen offers everything you could want, even a large assortment of spices. Sitting on the front deck offers peace and quiet to read your favorite book in the shade. There is no air conditioning but the house stays very cool during the day and at night. Good restaurants nearby.

We went to local music festivals and they even had folding lawn chairs to take with you.
