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.

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

A relaxing respite in the north country!

  • 5 of 5

This Christopher Creek property was ideal for a relaxing break from city life!!! Anita had a welcoming batch of home made brownies. The house is VERY spacious!! The split plan, with a very large bedroom on either end of the house is ideal for larger groups. And both bathrooms have the sink outside of the shower/toilet for convenience. The kitchen is fabulous!!! There is every pot, pan, bowl, utensil and gadget you could hope for in a VRBO!!! It is a very convenient kitchen to work in!!! And plenty of food staples to help out with baking. The back porch is HUGE and it's great fun to watch the squirrels and birds through the large sliding glass doors. The house has many windows and plenty of light. The house is well stocked with books and games and two televisions. Thanks Anita for your hospitality!!!

We loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

The home was relaxing and spacious. It was incredible to be right on the creek. There is a very large deck with comfortable seating to enjoy the crisp air and sounds of the creek. The neighbors are very friendly. We will certainly be back as soon as we can.

About Anita Goss

Having owned this home for the past fifteen years, I can attest to what a joy it is to have quiet couple time or joyous family gatherings here. The home is roomy and comfortable. Come see! The back deck is simply the best in Northern Arizona!!!!!!

Anita Goss purchased this house in 2004

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!!!
