About the property

1,590 s.f. 3/1 bd/ba, lodge themed Cabin at 6,600+ elev. & acres of tall pines

Just 9 miles out of Prescott to the tranquil high pines away from all the noise and tiny spaces on tiny lots in the city.

The Cabin is tastefully decorated in a vintage lodge theme with fishing and mining artifacts and accents. All the comforts of home that will make your stay fun and enjoyable. 52" LCD TV on the main floor with unlimited wifi, VOIP phone, cell signal amplifier and cell chargers along with DirectTV, Netflix streaming, DVD movies.

The large deck is great to star-gaze with your favorite beverage while waiting for the Milky Way to appear over the silhouette of the treetops. During the daytime, enjoy the views of the acreage and family fun time as the clouds go rolling by. The property and area is great for hiking and exploring. You will find remnants of old mining operations of the area, some even on our property along the seasonal creek. There is plenty of flat area also with a small apple orchard, horse shoe pit and a lot of quiet in our private forest in the Bradshaw Mountains.

Comforts and conveniences for our guests also include; two BBQ's (one on either side of the cabin), bottled water, all new linens (flannel sheets in the winter), paper products, basic condiments, spices, seasonings and all the small appliances you may need, including the blender and corkscrews for those evenings back out on the deck.

Vintage wood stoves at both levels of the cabin and flannel sheets will keep you toasty warm and add to the ambiance of the cabin. Split wood is ample and space heaters are provided for each bedroom too. A portable fire pit and skewers for roasted marshmallows and hot dogs are ready for your family's enjoyment.

About Lani & Greg Stava

We love the outdoors and traveling. We purchased this cabin 10 years ago for a quick get-away from the valley and to enjoy the four seasons of the Bradshaw Mountains and the charming town of Prescott.

Lani & Greg Stava purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Lani & Greg Stava chose Prescott

Secluded, high mountain cabin with acreage yet close to Prescott. We wanted a rustic cabin in the pines that was not too far from our home in the north Phoenix and a place with history, character and where you could get away from it all, or not.

The cabin sits on almost two acres, it’s 6,682 foot elevation is sometimes 10 degrees cooler than Prescott and usually 20 degrees cooler than Phoenix. It is a 3 bedroom, 3/4 bath with a large deck on the back of the cabin with fabulous views. We have apple trees on the property with fruit usually ready to be pulled in the fall. A seasonal creek at the bottom of the property carries runoff to Lynx Creek and Lynx Lake after the summer rains or with the snow melt. This is truly a charming piece of property we know you will enjoy.

What makes this cabin unique

Serene and secluded... Relax on the deck as you look out over the treetops and down into the valley that seems to always carry a breeze into the property. Two large flat areas on almost two acres of land surrounds our mini apple orchard and is full of iris and delicate forest plants. The towering pines provide a welcomed shade in this second sitting area, two hammocks are nearby for a quick nap or just staring off into the blue skies and lazy rolling clouds.

Recently renovated with new flooring, cabinets and bath on the main floor, decorated to look and feel more like a rustic lodge. Decorations include vintage original oil paintings, mining items, fly fishing rods/reels and an assortment of other treasures from days gone by and collected from here and there to create a more rustic feel to the place.

Look for deer, javelina, an occasional skunk and coyotes. Although more difficult to spot, there are lynx, raccoons, turkeys and occasional black bear sightings the area.

Truly a home away from home. Just drive the appropriate vehicle

  • 5 of 5

This place is awesome, spacious, truly a home away from home. I can see how people could stay here for a month. Besides being up among the pines, even cooler than in Downtown Prescott, you truly are away from crowds and noise. I only saw a colorful woodpecker while I was here. Lynx Lake is not far away for hiking and water pursuits.

The lodge is well-stocked with everything you need for cooking (we even had a bottle of wine, eggs, and some dessert items left for us, plus condiments in the fridge). Plenty of spices, cooking spray, and even salad dressings. Also any item needed to prepare food in the kitchen, plus two gas grills outside. There is a big TV with a number of DVDs to watch or Dish, etc.

The fishing lodge decor with plenty of bear pictures and so forth was fun, and the small bedroom with a large teddy bear was very child-friendly. Even the closets have some items useful for exploring the area, like hats, backpacks, and more.

The shed out back has items for guest use like hammocks, fold-out lounge chairs, and citronella candles.

The master bedroom seems to have a memory-foam bed which was comfortable but a little warm.

There was only one thing that was an issue with this property, and that was the driveway. The owner instructs that due to the narrow drive, it is best to back down. Well, the drive is steep, unpaved, and a bit curvy. It would be fine to park with a four wheel drive vehicle or Jeep....extra ground clearance would also help. I have a Nissan Altima and found it hard to park. I would recommend even having some reflective markers or something in the drive to make parking easier. The local roads are very twisty and narrow. If you are planning to come here, I would consider your vehicle choice.

We didn’t have enough room in our cabin for our large family, so we reached out to our neighbors The Stava’s to help with the overflow. They thought of everything and made our stay feel perfect in every way!

Peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5

If you are wondering if you should book this property, stop wondering and book it! This place exudes relaxation, whether you're sitting on the back deck or strolling the grounds. We spent our spring break here visiting my daughter who attends Yavapai College. She and some friends came out to enjoy the serenity and a home-cooked meal. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need, and there was just the right amount of space for everyone to re-energize. Greg and Lani are wonderful hosts, and have thought of everything. We have booked a cruise for next spring break, but are already thinking about trading that in for another week at Mary May Inn!

Perfect, relaxing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin & its surrounding property exceeded all of our hopes & expectations for a much-needed relaxing family vacation. We were instantly in love with the beautiful cabin & all its window views, all the thoughtful amenities, & the serene forest surroundings. We were excited to see 15 deer right on the other side of the deck one day & a magical snowfall the next day. This was the perfect place to get away from all the distractions of busy, normal life & focus on our spending wonderful time with our family! We are already talking about our “next time” here!

Peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

Lani and Greg’s cabin was very beautiful and peaceful. I don’t know if it was ordered but the herd of Mule deer passing in front of the cabin when we arrived was a great touch. The cabin was very cozy and the wood fireplaces heated the cabin extremely well. Even in weather down to 15 degrees the cabin was warm and we did not need blankets. The cabin was stocked with plenty of supplies, dishes, and cooking ware. We couldn’t have asked for a better time or a better place to stay.

Nearest Restaurant
7 Miles
Lynx Lake Cafe
Car: necessary

This property is located approximately 10 miles south from the intersection of Highway 69 and Walker Road. Walker Road is a paved two lane road for about 9 miles. The last mile to the cabin is a dirt road (but county maintained), that is easily driven by car. If you consider renting during the snow season or muddy "thaw" (December -March having a vehicle with 4WD is strongly recommended as well as VRBO trip cancellation insurance.

Many of the restaurants and entertainment venues are only 15 to 20 miles from the cabin, a quick trip for something forgotten or sight seeing.

There are six lakes are between 8 and 20 miles from your stay (Watson, Willow, Granite Basin, Goldwater, Lynx and Fain Lake), for licensed fishing, boating/kayaking, and some of the lakes have boat rentals available. Fishing and miles of hiking trails are at your backdoor. There are plenty of things to do in and around Prescott!
