3bed/2bath House In Pine, AZ Sleeps 8

This year round cabin is 3 bedroom, 2 bath 1829sqft house is located about 90 minutes drive north of Phoenix in Pine, AZ (elevation is 5,448 feet = 20º cooler year round) (Pine is about 15 miles north of Payson) and has all you might need in a home away from home but with all the serenity, tall pine, & starry night views the city is missing: central heating and air conditioning, cathedral ceilings, covered deck, fully stocked kitchen, laundry room with full size washer and dryer, ceiling fans in every room. Amenities include Netflix, wifi, Directv, HBO, clean linens, and towels. Picturesque views, quiet street, tall pines, wild life (deer, elk, squirrel, birds, etc.) Property has an alarm system and includes a security camera inside on top of kitchen wall pointed at the entrance.

The upstairs bathroom has a jacuzzi tub (sadly only for one but man is it relaxing), a separate shower, towels, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and soap. The upstairs master has a king size bed, some empty dresser drawers, and closet with hangers. The living room has leather couch, love seat, and chairs that are being restored. The upstairs dining area has table and seating for 6. Folding card table & 4 chairs in laundry room.

The garage is off limits.

Downstairs you will find a second full bathroom with towels, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and soap. Also downstairs are the second and third bedrooms. One with a queen bed, empty dresser, and closet with hangers. The other has 4 twins in L-shaped bunk beds and walk-in closet with hangers.

Stairs required to get to main level and downstairs bedrooms.

DEFAULT Cleaning Package 1: $75 covers laundry and beds only, YOU clean kitchen and bathrooms - check out time is 11a.

Cleaning Package 2: $150 includes ME cleaning whole house for you - check out time is 11a

Cleaning Package 3: $0 YOU do laundry, put away sheets/towels, remake beds, clean living room, kitchen, laundry room, bedrooms, & bathrooms - check out time for Opt 3 is 3p - Cleaning deposit will not be refunded until AFTER you've left your online review.

There's a regular coffee pot with reusable filter and an electric water kettle. Coffee, tea, ketchup, mustard, & basic spices provided. Propane BBQ grill. I try to keep it full but if it ever runs out the cost to fill to use is on you. The gas station across from the hardware store does refills. It cost me $9 to refill when it was completely empty and swaps are about $20+.

We don't provide air mattresses for extra guests. Only sleeps 8 (2 in Master King, 2 in Queen, & 4 in single twin bunk beds).

There aren't any alarm clocks in any of the bedrooms because you're on "Pine Time" (aka vacation).

There is NO trash service at Pine Time cabin. Please pack out whatever you hauled in. The Texaco gas station (toward Strawberry) has a $2/bag dumpster if you don't want to haul it home.

You may want to bring your own:

• food (there's always excess ketchup, mustard, & mayo in fridge)

• artificial sweetener if you use it (there is sugar and honey)

• paper towels if you use those (there are plenty of towels)

• paper napkins if you use those

• folding camp chairs for sitting around the fire-pit.

• pack-n-play or travel crib (none here yet)

• toothpaste & toothbrush

• shaving razors

• graham crackers, marshmallows, and chocolate for campfire s'mores

Pine is a small town with a population of about 1,900. Shops, restaurants, bars, ice cream shop, & even a hardware store. Plus a Walmart, chain restaurants, etc are in Payson only about 15 minutes away.

Acres of hiking & biking trails, waterfalls, swimming streams, boating, kayaking, fishing, horseback riding, & golf all very nearby.


1) Leave the cabin CLEAN & as you found it. If kitchen and bathrooms are not clean when you check out you will be charged $100 more (unless you chose Cleaning Package 2). The current $75 fee ONLY covers the cost of washing linens, towels, and remaking all the beds so thoroughly clean up after yourselves. If you know that you don't plan on cleaning, let host know *before you book* to get a slight discount on extra cleaning fee. This is our HOME not a hotel. In order to keep the fees low you ARE required to leave it clean. Respect the house as if it were your very best friend's.

2) Respect the neighbors and wildlife. Sound carries a lot farther here in the woods. That's my nice way of saying NO loud parties or music.

3) Remove shoes at the entrance whenever possible.

4) Garage & locked cabinet in laundry room are off limits.

5) Do NOT cut or put hot pans on counters or tables. There are cutting boards, trivets, and hot pads provided.

6) NO SMOKING INSIDE. If you smoke outside use extreme caution and take ALL evidence with you.

7) There is NO trash service so you will be required to take it ALL with you (including bathroom trash). Aluminum soda/beer cans can be dropped in recycling bins at Ponderosa Market and Pine Elementary school has a paper/cardboard recycling bin. There is a $2/bag pay dumpster at the Texaco in Pine.

8) Do not change TV wiring. Weird that we even need to say that but a past guest did. (?)

9) The trampoline, playground, & fire pit behind my home belong to my neighbor and they've asked me to inform all guests that it's "private property & off limits" even if they appear to be away!

If these rules aren't followed we will place a claim against your security deposit.

• Check-in time is 3PM*. CAN be earlier if arrangements are made PRIOR to your stay.

• Check-out time is 11AM* but can be later IF arrangements are made PRIOR to your stay.

*=NOTE - if you check in the same day someone is checking out your check in time may need to be later to give time to reset. If no-one is checking out the day you check in your check in time can likely be earlier IF you ask and receive approval.

• INSTANT BOOKING IS NOT ALLOWED FOR 7+ GUESTS. Any number of guests over the 7 MUST be pre-approved by owner PRIOR to booking and in certain circumstances the extra person fee may be waived.

• After booking and before your trip PLEASE take a moment to read the cabin manual. There you will find the answers to nearly ALL your questions.

• Please feel free to text or message owner with any questions or concerns.

About Owner/Manager

Husband and I are both Phoenix, AZ transplants (him from MI, me from AK) but have both lived here for 20 years so we are officially acclimated. No, that doesn't mean I like 110º weather. It means I won't die in it. I still VERY much prefer our 9 months of awesome over our 3 months of YUCK which is why we recently bought our Pine, AZ cabin. The plan is for it to be our exclusive summer home, but as we all know LIFE (especially with 3 girls) gets in the way of "plans".

Our goal is to provide you with a quiet, trouble free stay. Please do not hesitate to contact us via phone/text with any questions or concerns.

Owner/Manager purchased this house in 2015

Why Owner/Manager chose Pine

A quiet retreat that feels like a home away from home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wonderful stay!

  • 4 of 5

The house was just wonderful for our family. The boys especially loved the bunk beds. I was hoping for more of a yard for the children to play in but we found that the only yard space belongs to the neighbor behind. Otherwise our stay was just wonderful!

One of the nicer rentals

  • 5 of 5

Overall nicely appointed property in convenient location with some of the more comfortable beds we've found in VRBO properties. Beds alone would warrant returning. Located somewhat close to neighbors, but with 2nd floor living and surrounded by tall pines felt plenty private. Easy check-in and check-out. Quite a few amenities (coffee, condiments & SPICES, wifi, Roku, grill, well appointed kitchen, central A/C, etc.). Well maintained inside and out with pleasant and comfortable furniture & decor. Love all the bears! Plenty of room for a family. There were only two of us for a short visit, but were also checking the place out for future family trips and it would definitely meet our needs. Only drawback is cleaning upon checkout, which for our 2 day stay was no issue at all. If we were staying a week with more than 2 people, I'd prefer to pay for cleaning service to come in behind. Definitely will consider this property again.

Convenient, clean and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for sharing your home away from home with us. We were very impressed at how clean and well stocked the house was. Jennifer was extremely responsive in all of our communication. We truly enjoyed being able to relax on the hammock outside and listen to the pine trees sway in the wind. We can't wait to come back!

Perfect cabin in Pine!

  • 5 of 5

We brought our family up to Pine for Spring Break and were so excited when we pulled up to this cabin. It's in a great location - convenient to town but on a nice quiet street with easy forest access. The cabin was very clean and well-maintained. It has a great layout with two bedrooms downstairs and the master and kitchen upstairs with a big wrap-around deck. Our kids loved the bunk room and giant double bunk bed! The beds were all comfortable and we had everything we needed for our stay. We loved the deck and swing, the horseshoes, and the fire pit outside. We were able to go to Tonto Natural Bridge, went for a drive on the Mogollon Rim, and hiked the Pine Canyon Trail. Our kids loved the entire trip and it all started with this amazing cabin. We can't wait to come back. It was everything we hoped for and more!

Annual cabin trip

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cabin for our annual trip. The cabin is located in the pines and had a very "home" feel to it. The owners were great in making sure we were taken care of. They were very helpful. We have been doing this trip for about 8 years now and they were the most personable and helpful owners we have dealt with. We enjoyed the cabin so much with horseshoes and enjoying the perfect weather and playing cornhole on the deck that we didn't even explore the town. Looking forward to renting this cabin again in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you for this wonderful review. It really means a lot to us that you enjoyed your stay in our home. Even though we never met, I love it when guests feel like new friends. Your personality shown through too. We would love to have you back any time. Pine got 18" of snow this weekend and you wouldn't recognize the now winter wonderland. Happy New Year! Jennifer
