Overview

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!!!

Very Nice and quiet retreat

  • 5 of 5

Loved the clean air surrounded by nature as well as the beautiful home. Anita was very pleasant and made our experience one to remember. She also left home made brownies for us when we arrived as well as a very clean home. We loved it

Wonderful rental

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the best homes we have rented using VRBO. The home was very clean, well stocked, very relaxing. The patio is beautiful and it was so relaxing to sit by the creek. Neighborhood was very quiet. Anita was very accommodating and loved the brownies that greeted us on our arrival. We would love to return next year.

A wonderful getaway on the banks of Christopher Creek!

  • 5 of 5

Anita was accommodating and easy to talk to. The home was a pleasure inside and outside. Tall trees everywhere and the sound of the creek while you go to sleep is so peaceful! We loved the brownies too! Thanks Anita!
