  • Peaceful getaway!!!


    Randy, the cabin host is an amazing owner that really cares about your experience! The cabin is just unbelievable how beautiful it is, the setting is unreal, burning a real fire in the cabin was amazing and the river just tops it all for me!! Backed to the national forest we didn’t even get to do everything we wanted to because there are so many things you can do there to experience the tranquillity of nature!! We will be back to do some hiking next time and again sleep by the River

  • Cabin on the River


    Absolutely amazing little cabin with everything you need. Clean, comfortable, well-stocked kitchen, comfortable beds, perfect headquarters for day-hikes in and around Rim Country. One of the absolute best VRBOs we've ever experienced. Randy, the owner, is amazingly accessible and helpful. 5 plus stars in every category!

  • Great location for hiking!


    This was the perfect location/cabin for a small hiking girls trip! The cabin is located just outside of Payson - which was nice for anything you would need in town. However, the cabin was equipped with everything you would need. Plenty of hiking to do within an hour - any direction. The owners were accessible prior to and during the stay for any needs/Qs that popped up.
