About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Enjoy the quiet elegance of this creekside home nestled among trees, woods, and stream in the hamlet of Christopher Creek. This special retreat is in the mountains 20 miles east of Payson, directly below the stunning Mogollon Rim vista. Less than a mile from the highway, the home is easy to access in all seasons, yet still perfect for those who enjoy quiet, wildlife, and beauty all around them. The hiking and fishing are outstanding in this forested area abounding with lakes, streams, and magnificent mountain views. Or you can enjoy the amenities of nearby Payson, with its antiques, museums, restaurants and shopping.

The home’s large back deck is directly next to the stream, making it a delightful area for eating, relaxing, and wildlife viewing, with many squirrels and birds lending their chatter to the burbling creek sounds. The rim has many hiking trails, and is a great area for cross country skiing. Or simply stay warm at this refreshing retreat and restore your spirit among the trees and sparkling water.

Inside the home awaits another kind of beauty: understated refinement rare to find in a mountain hideaway. The 1900 SF home has two master bedroom suites with private dressing areas and bathrooms, each with patio doors adjoining the 80 foot deck. There is a third central bathroom with shower for guests, next to the laundry and pantry. Cozy, private enough for two, yet able to sleep five, the home is large enough to entertain even more if desired.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great house, squirrels, birds and deck! We even caught one rainbow trout in Christopher Creek! (Released it back to wild.) Woods Canyon Lake was a great suggestion. Had great time. We will be in touch to rent again in near future! Thank you!!!

Definitely Home-Away-From-Home

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing place to spend the weekend. We aren't new to renting places around the area and have had our share of good and bad experiences. Well, we can definitely add this one to the good column. The place is simply perfect, nice and quite. Has absolutely everything you could need. Owner is absolutely easy to work with and even cooked us some of the best brownies I've ever had.

I will definitely recommend this location to my friends and family and to anyone looking for a get away from Phoenix, specially during the summer.

Home away from home!!

  • 5 of 5

This Christopher Creek getaway was a home away from home! The property was beautiful and very well kept. The sound of the rushing creek in the backyard was incredibly peaceful. The house was clean and provided everything a family of three and our boxer could need...including a massage chair!! Two king suites with a great room between was a perfect layout. We were so comfortable and the little community of Christopher Creek was quite welcoming. This home is a hop skip and a jump from the Rim for sledding and playing in the snow, a quick jaunt to rockhounding at Diamond Point, and a short drive to Payson for additional restaurants and entertainment. Anita was such a lovely host. Her brownies surpassed reputation! Scrumptious!! Such a sweet bonus. Thank you Anita! We look forward to returning soon for all that your haven and northern Arizona have to offer!

Blessings!

The Brady Family

Big Beautiful Relaxing Patio!!!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay more than we expected. The pictures do not do it justice. Sitting outside on the patio by the creek in the late afternoon was exactly what we were looking for. It was so relaxing and quiet. We will definitely return for another visit.
