About Carolynne and Jeff Callan

Jeff is an IT professional and author. Carolynne is a very grateful stay at home mom, formerly a nurse. Our primary home is in the valley. We are blessed with 3 wonderful children & a log cabin in Payson!

Carolynne and Jeff Callan purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Carolynne and Jeff Callan chose Arizona

We fell in love with Payson the first time we visited. The Blissful Bear Log Cabin is enchanting, feels like you have travelled far away although is only 1 1/2 hours from the Valley & an average of 20 degrees cooler.

What makes this cabin unique

Close to town yet rural peaceful feeling. Child friendly with fully enclosed yard. Newly renovated, clean and cozy.

Perfect cabin for families!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect cabin for families with children. The cabin is wonderfully decorated and stocked with toys and a backyard playground. The views are incredible and located right next to the pathway to the river. Everyone is so friendly and waves. Will definitely come back again.

Great weekend by the river!

  • 5 of 5

Kids loved their room, my 6 year old daughter almost couldn't go to sleep the first night because she couldn't believe how awesome it was! Very comfortable and cozy place to spend a weekend away from it all. Plenty of reasons to visit, including the surrounding scenery and easy hiking trails nearby for the kids. Wouldn't hesitate in the least to stay again and will definitely be recommending it for our friends with families!

Clean, cosy,and a magical Christmas experience

  • 5 of 5

Excellent place to stay. Would definitely stay there again. Everything you need to have a great time and feels very homey. Only downside is poor Internet service but who cares since that is not why we were there.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind review. We have been working with our Internet Service Provider and will upgrade our service as soon as higher speeds become available in the neighborhood. The phone company has been dragging its feet for months in authorizing faster trunk lines to the area. Until they do, we are sharing limited bandwidth which accounts for the network sluggishness.

Beautiful cabin! Large upstairs bedrooms for the kids. Kitchen appointed well enough to cook some parts of Thanksgiving! Dining room table had leaves so we actually hosted game night with family! Loved it and if back in Payson will look to rent again!

Beautifully located and outfitted cozy cabin !

  • 5 of 5

What a cozy cabin for a girls get away weekend! The cabin ambiance left the three of us no other choice but to relax, recharge and revel in the beauty of changing fall colors. One of our favorite places was the covered deck fully outfitted with comfortable furniture, gas grill and dining area with which to admire the lovely views. The numerous walking opportunities around the neighborhood and along the river as well as hiking at Tonto Natural Bridge were a perfect compliment to the deep relaxation the cabin inspires. The cabin interior is nicely decorated with new couches and chairs, firm mattresses and more than enough spaces to sit and converse very comfortably. We found everything we needed in the kitchen and then some. The owners Jeff and Carolynne are very organized and responded to our questions immediately. We are so thrilled to have had the opportunity to stay here and hope to be able to return! Blissful is a great word to describe this cabin!
