HI, my name is Jack Wolf and I own "jackscabin". You will be required to fill out and sign my rental agreement after you make your reservation. Property Owners still control their bookings for their cabins even when you make an on line reservation. VRBO has changed their format and they have removed the property owners phone numbers, e-mail address and web sites from our VRBO ads. Because of this policy change you will first have to click on "Ask Owner A Question" to send me a message ((NOT A RESERVATION)) so I can answer your questions. VRBO does not have the capability for me to get my detailed rates and varying fees on the VRBO site By removing all of my contact information from my VRBO ad it is very difficult for us to communicate with the vacationers or to answer any questions they have about our rates, the VRBO fees and jackscabin . Because of this we have posted our detailed rate page in our photo gallery. REGARDLESS OF WHAT YOU MAY HAVE BEEN TOLD I, JACK WOLF (THE OWNER) WANT TO TALK WITH EVERY VACATIONER WHO RENTS JACKSCABIN TO VERIFY THE VACATIONERS INFORMATION SUPPLIED TO VRBO BY THE VACATIONER. I RESERVE THE RIGHT TO CANCEL ANY RESERVATION IF OUR RENTAL AGREEMENT IS NOT FILLED OUT AND SIGNED OR IF FALSE INFORMATION IS GIVEN TO VRBO FROM THE VACATIONER. THERE ARE NO REFUNDS FOR CANCELLED RESERVATIONS. The rate quote you receive from VRBO may not be the correct rate for the dates you want to reserve.

Pet fees vary from $50- $350 based on the number of pets you bring and the size of the pets. A $100-$350 refundable pet security deposit will be charged. This deposit varies depending on the amount and size of your pets you bring. The Security Deposit varies from $100-$400 depending on group size and season you rent.The cleaning fee is $100.

All of these rates vary depending on the season or holiday you rent, the size of your group, the length of you vacation and the pet(s) you bring. VRBO does not have a place on their site for me to put our varying rates, varying deposits and varying pet fees for multiple pets so the rate quote you get from VRBO may be incorrect. This is why I will have to give you the rates for jackscabin when I communicate with you thru the VRBO site. Charge Cards and auto check transfers are the only form of payment VRBO will accept for this cabin.The VRBO on line booking fee is charged to every property you reserve thru VRBO, not just mine.

When making a reservation on line thru VRBO I have to honor my agreement with VRBO. I apologize for the VRBO change in format and I hope I have helped you understand my reservation policy, my rates and fees and the VRBO on line booking fees.

About Jack Wolf
Hi, My name is Jack Wolf and I live in Gilbert, Arizona. I am not a Realtor or Management Company. I am a private owner. I teach guitar, banjo and mandolin at Milano's Music in downtown Mesa, Arizona. I was fortunate in 1998 to have stumbled on an acre on 200 feet of lakefront property on Rainbow Lake. jackscabin was on the property in less than 8 months and it hasn't been empty since 1998.
Jack Wolf purchased this Cabin in 1998
Why Jack Wolf chose Lakeside
jackscabin is on a very rare piece of lakefront property in Arizona. Privately owned lakefront vacation homes are extremely rare in Arizona. They only exist on Rainbow Lake in Pinetop/Lakeside, Arizona. I own and manage jackscabin so there aren't any extra management fees except for the VRBO fee that VRBO collects from you and the 3% payment fee VRBO charges. Property owners cannot waive, change or discount these VRBO fees. Unfortunately because of these fees it does cost more to rent jackscabin when booked on line. The cabin is professionally cleaned after every renter so it is always ready for the next family. The 4 seasons in Pinetop/Lakeside, Arizona are great for everything you want to do like fishing, snow skiing, horseback riding, go-carting, going to the Casino, hiking, site seeing or if you prefer to do nothing more than sit on the front deck to enjoy the cool mountain climate. You won't find another place with scenery like this.
What makes this Cabin unique
jackscabin has everything. It sleeps 10. jackscabin sits on 200 feet of lakefront property on Rainbow Lake. jackscabin has it's own 36 foot private pier for the vacationers only. I supply 4 boats, the ores, anchors, life jackets and a battery charger for those families who want to bring their own trolling motors and batteries. There is cable TV and DVD players in the living room and in every bedroom. The living room also has a blue ray player and stereo. Hi speed internet is available at no extra charge. The cabin is always clean. The beautiful wood floors, knotty pine ceilings, stoned fireplace, solid pine doors and log siding give the cabin a warm, comfortable mountain feel. The Lake right out the front door is the most unique feature for any cabin in Arizona. jackscabin is on an acre with no streets, sidewalks or highways within 2 miles. The private road that takes you to jackscabin dead ends at jackscabin. Vacationers will not be bothered with highway noise, traffic or people wandering around the property. My rates are unbeatable for a lakefront cabin with 4 boats and a 36 foot private pier. There are no management fees. Pets are ok with approval.

First class operation.
An extremely peaceful setting; very relaxing. Fishing wasn't as good as I had hoped for but caught plenty of catfish. Cabin had all of the necessary amenities and was very comfortable.
We had a wonderful stay at Jack's Cabin. We ate most of our meals out on the covered deck. The lake view was delightful. No one seemed to catch any fish. There are gigantic carp visible in the mornings.
The cabin is spacious. We never used the two guest bedrooms. We found everything we needed in the well-equipped kitchen. There were plenty of nice towels.
I met many friendly neighbors as I walked my dogs through the neighborhood. Both days and nights were quiet and peaceful.
I'm so glad you enjoyed your vacation at "Jacks Cabin". Thank you for taking such good care of our cabin. Please let us know when you are ready to return for another peaceful week or weekend. Sincerely, Jack Wolf in Gilbert, Arizona, Owner of "Jacks Cabin" on Rainbow Lake in Pinetop/Lakeside.
Best views ever...
We loved Jack's cabin, the setting on the lake is serene, with never ending
captivating water fowl action. The house has an amazing deck for dining, or just hanging out. House is clean, 3 big bedrooms and very roomy. Location within Pinetop/Lakeside is great, less than 10 minutes to restaurants and shopping. Jack was top notch in his communications and responsiveness to our needs. Even his cleaning crew was welcoming. Good Stay !
Look forwarded to another visit as soon as we can
Thank you Frank. Looking forward to hearing from you about your next trip. Jack
The cabin is in a great spot! Jack’s cabin had everything we needed.
Jack’s cabin was a great place for our family to visit! The weather was the only thing that wasn’t too cooperative-it was cooler than normal and windy. My kids had fun fishing from the dock and lake’s edge. The kitchen was well stocked with what we needed to fix food and we enjoyed the fireplace and fire pit.
Peaceful and lovely stay!
We had a lovely time at the cabin - so quiet, peaceful and full of nature. The accommodations were perfectly fine. We will certainly return again in the future!
Thank you so much for choosing jackscabin for your vacation. We can't wait to have you back. Sincerely, jack Wolf
