About the property

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-6)

Located on the shore of spectacular Rainbow Lake just 45 minutes from Sunrise Ski Park and White Mountain fishing, this secluded and private townhouse is within 20 feet of the lake's edge. It has 1780 square feet of living space and features two bedrooms, a private sleeping loft, and two full baths. With an upper and lower deck overlooking the lake, enjoy breathtaking sunsets. Enjoy your morning coffee while taking in the quiet calm of this picturesque lake. You'll see many species of waterfowl, muskrats, and, at last count, six bald eagles.

Rainbow Lake is an 88 acre lake that offers outstanding fishing for rainbow trout, bass and catfish. Trout fishing is the best in early spring through summer and it is stocked numerous times by Arizona Game & Fish. Rooms are all set at unique angles that offer the best views of the lake. Fully furnished and equipped, this home also has two fireplaces (well stocked with firewood) including one in the Master Bedroom Suite (Very Romantic!). The large master bath also includes a two person soaking tub!

The town-house is located in a private gated community! Only 24 town homes of which only one is lived in full time. The other 23 are vacation homes with the majority of those owners living in Phoenix, Tucson or California. A very secluded and private community with no public access! A great place to get away from it all, unwind, relax and enjoy the beautiful White Mountains of Arizona!

Great house on the lake!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and our 4 kids stayed here for almost a week in June. The house is fantastic! Everything was great quality and super clean. We loved walking outside every morning and seeing the lake right there, then watching the sun set on the lake from the back patio every night.

It would have been a five star stay, no question, except that the temperature was consistently in the mid to upper 90's all week and if we opened doors or windows we were infiltrated with mosquitoes and bugs. (Which, we heard, isn't normal. It's because the winter was so mild it didn't freeze out the larvae the way it usually does and the water levels were really low also, giving them more breeding ground. Cute huh?)

Obviously that isn't anyone's fault and it wasn't a huge deal! We made it work by eating copious amounts of frozen treats and leaving the house during the hottest part of the day for air conditioned venues.

We really loved the house and would totally go back!

A Relaxing Escape

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying in this lovely home at the water's edge. It's stocked with everything you need. You only need to bring your food and drinks. The neighborhood is perfectly scenic and quiet for taking a relaxing stroll with the family. It's perfectly located, allowing for short rides to shopping and restaurants.

Wonderful Home on the Water

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my wife, mother-in-law and golden retriever in April 2016. It's a wonderfully appointed town home right on the edge of beautiful Rainbow Lake. It includes everything you need to cook, entertain, and relax. The kitchen is large, modern; the bedrooms are large and comfortable. And the views from the living room, kitchen, dining area and master bedroom are fantastic, with a wonderful balcony off the master bedroom that sits right over the lake (the pictures don't do it justice). The gated community is very private and quiet, perfect for a weekend (or week-long) unwind. Bob was very helpful, with plenty of good local information. We'll definitely stay here again!

A Great Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

A great winter getaway. We stayed for a long weekend and really relaxed. You cannot beat the lake view - it is absolutely beautiful. The fireplace kept us cozy and the large kitchen is perfect for enjoying meals - the kitchen and dining area also have a lake view. Only one bedroom has the view of the lake - there are other homes we have stayed in at this complex that have 2 bedrooms with a view - but the master bedroom in this one is really big and the upstairs patio is great. We are excited to return to this area again next year for our 4th year in a row.

Wonderful Vacation On Rainbow Lake!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at this beautiful condo on Rainbow Lake this summer. We had such an amazing time. The owners thought of every detail and the condo was very nice and cozy. The beds, linens and all the amenities were outstanding. We enjoyed waking up everyday to the beautiful lake just steps away. The owners were very personable and easy to work with. I would highly recommend this place for your next vacation. We love to travel to the white mountains and will for sure come

back here.
