  • Well-appointed House - Fantastic Property Manager


    We have stayed in quite a few Vrbo houses and this one is by far the most well-appointed property yet. Thoughtful amenities include a fully stocked coffee and hot chocolate bar, games for the family, and plenty of firewood for the outdoor fire pit. Although the amenities were a treat, the property manager proved to be very helpful and responsive to all of our questions AND our plea to help us find an item we thought we left behind. Thank you again for a wonderful experience!

  • Magical!


    Happy Shack – the perfect name for the perfect getaway. “Wow” is the first thing that comes to mind when approaching this luxurious retreat from the routine. This place is stunning – and just a short drive from Phoenix! It’s a cozy and gorgeous A-frame cabin, but so much more. While cozy, it’s actually really big! When we arrived, we were greeted with Happy Shack personalized wine and an adorable S’mores set. So thoughtful! The cabin is so tidy and stylish, and the details really impressed me … they are incredible! There’s a super-cute coffee bar area, so many fun games to choose from, a cool dining table area and a large TV above the fireplace to enjoy a movie. The beds are so comfy, the linens are beautiful (I’m still thinking about those fluffy white luxe towels!), and the bathrooms are so cute – the hosts even provide toiletries! The mornings were cool and perfect, and it was so amazing to gently wake to the sounds of the native birds in the pine trees. And where to start on the outside – it’s perfection! A huge wraparound patio is where we ate most of our meals. There’s also a cool custom firepit with Adirondack chairs surrounding it that we took full advantage of – S’mores, anyone? We also lazed on the hammocks surrounding the property, which is so perfect and peaceful. We enjoyed long quiet walks in the mornings and fun activities in the afternoons – like ax throwing and archery! Finally, we took the kayaks generously provided by the hosts to C.C. Cragin (Blue Ridge) Reservoir, which was only 20 minutes away, and had the best time on the water! As for service, the manager of Happy Shack is super-responsive and helpful. I cannot say enough good things about this cool place that I am now officially in love with…

    What an experience the hosts provide! This place is fantastic – the perfect secluded getaway that I definitely will return to soon!

  • A hidden gem!


    The Happy Shack is a charming hidden gem! It has been so thoughtfully upgraded and is the perfect cozy gathering place for family & friends. We loved sitting on the spacious porch under the trees, hanging out at the gas firepit in the evenings, and eating/playing games around the dining table! Everyone also REALLY loved the reclining couch seats! The hosts are very responsive and there are so many thoughtful amenities, from welcome wine to toiletry baskets to a fully stocked beverage station. We are already talking about how we’d love to come back (so we can kayak at blue ridge!).

  • HappyShack is where it's at!


    The only thing you need for a stay at happy shack is your clothes and food. This place is truly a home in the pines. A fully stocked kitchen with a full size fridge for all your goodies. The most comfortable sofa we've ever had at any BnB we've ever stayed at. Plenty of room for the whole family. A coffee/tea/cocoa bar that is perfectly thought out and stocked with anything you could ask for. Showers with plenty of water pressure for a good soaking, and adjustable for tall people! A game cupboard full of board games and puzzles and a large family size dinner table to gather around.

    They have provided everything you could think of and more from the beautiful decor and all those little touches that add to the ambience to the sweet welcome when you arrive, it's truly a home away from home.

    And then there's the fire pit, the stars or the rain storms whichever you end up with is great. The activities like corn hole, life size Jenga, hammocks (great nap spots!), A fun swing and then there's kayaks and a reservoir and lake not far. So much to do and enjoy! And no matter what ... The porch is our favorite spot. We love watching deer and blue Jays, eating our meals and playing games on the porch.... not something we get to do much of in our normal summer heat.

    We truly have the hardest time leaving the serenity and beauty of happy shack and can't wait to come again.

  • The Happy Shack Hosts were amazing and accommodating!


    We would highly recommend this cute A-Frame. We had a great time, weather was beautiful and our dogs loved every minute of it as well. Would love to come and stay again!
