Payson, Arizona , United States

Nestled among the majestic mountains of the Mogollon Rim-a 7,000-foot, 200-mile-long escarpment, lays our breathtaking and serene town of Payson.  We are just 90 minutes from the Phoenix metro area and surrounded by National Forest. Our forests cover the high slopes, and rivers run rampantly through surrounding canyons. We like to brag that our town is situated in one of only three, pure air ozone belts in the world!

Our cool mountain temperatures invite you to many activities including hiking, mountain biking, off-roading, swimming, river tubing, horseback riding, boating, [fishing][1], golfing, sledding, antiquing, dining and so much more.

Tonto Natural Bridge State Park, the Mogollon Rim, the East Verde River, Cold springs & water wheel swimming areas, Payson Rodeo Grounds, Mazatzal Casino, [Several Lakes][1] (abundant with a variety of fish), restaurants, Sawmill movie theater, museums, antique stores and plenty of shopping.  We also have:

Unforgettable Memories!

  • 5 of 5

We planned an annual outing with friends for our Christmas tree cutting and found this place to accommodate us. The owners e-mails were very welcoming and detailed with information. The house was exactly what we needed for a wonderful stay; great location, clean and spacious. Thanks for providing us with some fun memories!

Nice Home

  • 3 of 5

My husband and I were there 8 nights and shared with a family of 4. The home itself is comfortable enough, however for the price that is charged I would have expected clean rugs (there were dark spots around the dining room table. We didn't have enough hangers in the closets and I was told that they expect travelers to bring there own (never heard that one before). The towels in the bathrooms are thin, rough and cheap - something I would use for rags. The toilet paper is one-ply and I asked the owner about it because I thought they were on a septic system and she said she bought it because of the lower cost. So...we went out and bought our own. The door handle to the oven fell off twice which made the front of the oven also fall forward so our husbands had to fix it both times. I notified the owner also that there were 3 lights out in the master bathroom, but no one came to put new ones in. When we got ready to BBQ dinner in the barbecue outside we found it was out of propane, so we had to go out and have it filled up. When trying to enjoy the backyard we had a large dog next door barking at us for about a 1/2 hr. the first time and after that not as long, but it was rather annoying. There is a small fire pit in the backyard but they also don't stock any wood so we had to go out and buy that also. I don't mean to be picky, but for the price I expected a little more and the lack of response of the owners was disappointing. Because of these things I gave it 3 stars.

What was there not to like about this rental???

  • 5 of 5

This property was easy to get to and central to events in Payson. Home well maintained, equipped and we definitely will stay again. Quiet neighborhood. The only issue we had, was we were going to Barbecue on Friday evening and the grill had no gas...had to improvise. So definitely check that out before getting everything ready except the Steaks! Great property and above my expectations.

Gorgeous home, everything we expected

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful and clean home with a nice layout, located in a great neighborhood. The kitchen was well organized with everything we needed during our stay and there was plenty of room for guests throughout the many rooms of the house. I definitely enjoyed our time here and will rent again the next time we're in Payson.
