Conrad Nelke purchased this cabin in 1985

Why Conrad Nelke chose Payson

We wanted a place away from the valley where all of the kids and grandkids could come and be together. We found the area while visiting friends in Whispering Pines in a gorgeous snowstorm the day after a warm Thanksgiving in Phoenix. It seemed like heaven to be able to share both worlds with only a two hour ride. We wanted in! We had the shell built and completed the house ourselves. We picked chandeliers from Mexico, rocks for the fireplace from all over the country, and furnishings from family pieces, 'gently used' and even broke down and bought a lot. It works as 'eclectic to the max,' The views in this area belong to God--we just bought here so we could share them. There is a feeling in the air here that brings out the best in people which makes them happy.

What makes this cabin unique

Inviting friends here for a day or a weekend is a joy for us & them. Everyday cares fall away as the pines, oaks, and juniper give the air a certain mountain tang. Actually, The 5,400 feet elevation makes the nights 25 degrees and days 15 degrees cooler than valley temperatures. Here, we have seasons that give us soft spring rain, exciting summer electriical storms, vivid autumn leaves, and frost, snow, & earmuffs.

We never tire of seeing the glorious views of 40 miles of Rim that we share with God. Sunsets from the north deck are amazing, and the experience of watching a storm approach through the valley until the new rain finally drives you from your nest in the porch swing inside--unforgettable. We have had many memorable family reunions here--there have been two Golden Wedding celebrations, a Honeymoon--the magic is just beginning. You won't want to forget your time here. Bring your best camera.

AMAZINGLY RELAXING RETREAT

  • 5 of 5

Rented this cabin for my 39th birthday with 10 friends and family. The house is perfect for large groups. Plenty of space for everyone to do their own thing but it's also cozy. It is packed full of interesting features! The fireplace is stunning and the stairs to the bottom level are quirky fun! The views ARE STUNNING! Seriously, we sat on the porch all weekend. It was perfect. The owner was so easy to work with too. I would definitely recommend this cabin. We will be back! :)

Peaceful and spacious

  • 4 of 5

The home has great views and very spacious - beds everywhere! We visited Water Wheel and the Natural Arch, both very close. Eating and lounging on the decks was the adult favorite. Hide and seek was the kid fave.

One star deduction because the kitchen lacked a bit but we still made it work.

We had a wonderful time! Plenty of room for everyone, everything you can need and more is here, great view and we enjoyed all the patios. The ping pong table and fuse ball table was a blast during the rain. We would do it all over again!!

Outstanding views from decks! Ultimate relaxation!

  • 4 of 5

Thanks so much for having us at your cabin.  We really enjoyed our family time together.  The kids loved the fort amongst the trees, the 'big deer' that turned out to be an elk, lol.  The fabulous views from the decks, the swings were so enjoyable.  We loved sitting out there and watching the storms come in.  We played Candyland, ping pong and foozball w/ my grandkids, so great! Movie time galore!  I loved finding out more about your family through your artwork, quaint cabin furnishings and portraits.  Such a special place. <3
