  • The perfect getaway.


    This spot made the absolute perfect home base while we spent two days enjoying the beauty of the Tonto National Forest. Super cozy, clean, wonderful nostalgic vibe, easily accessible, and had everything we needed and more: Full kitchen and bath, three beds, hot tub, HUGE yard, front + back deck, river access, and a fire pit for roasting marshmallows (we were lucky to get in one day before fire restrictions were implemented).

    It's SUPER close to several riverfront day-use areas and countless hiking trails all while being close enough to Payson/Pine/Strawberry that you can enjoy everything this area of the state has to offer without spending hours on the road.

    VERY highly recommended. We plan on making a trip back as soon as possible.

    Manager's Response:

    Hi Jahonda, we take guest feedback seriously and passed your comments on to the homeowner who would like to share the following:
    - We strive to provide our guests with a great guest experience, so we were disappointed to hear your feedback and want to take a moment to address your concerns.
    - We use professional photography for the home, so the features you see on the listing are accurately advertised, including a photo of the bunk beds. The property is a 1960 single wide trailer that was dramatically remodeled and resembles the appearance of a cabin. We're truly sorry if this had a negative impact on your stay and have since followed up with Evolve to add a disclaimer on our listing so future guests don't feel caught off guard.
    - We were unaware of any issues with the stove and will follow up with our maintenance team to further investigate. We appreciate you bringing this to our attention.
    - We were surprised about your comment about access to the river. There is a natural trail which can be a little rocky, and although there are no steps or handrails, it provides a very accessible access to the river.
    Thanks for letting us know about your stay!
