About Connie Tapia

My sister and I grew up in the Forest Lakes area. Neither of us get up to the cabin as often as we would like to. We love the area and now want to share its beauty and serenity with others.

Connie Tapia purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Connie Tapia chose Arizona

This property is more than a weekend cabin, it is a home. It is warm and welcoming, especially in the early morning having coffee on the back porch. Be sure and watch for wildlife across the log fence, out in the forest.

What makes this cabin unique

Towels and linens are included. The kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, utensils and spices. It has both a Keurig and Mr. Coffee drip pot, just bring your own groceries.

Beautiful, well kept property in a great location. Walk through the back gate and you are right in the forest. Close drive to fishing, and two general stores nearby. Cafe has an incredible fish fry. Plenty of yard space for kids to run around, explore and play. Patio decks - to die for! Such a peaceful beautiful area to sit and "just be". Had great evenings with the family all outside sitting on the patio laughing and telling stories. Had a major storm roll through and we had no power for most of Saturday up till about 10pm. Fortunately, there were candles on hand, and gas stove so we could still make dinner in an adventurous way. Definitely will book this cabin again. Thank you so much for a wonderful place to getaway to.

Amazing Experience

  • 5 of 5

I had high expectations based on the reviews for this property. I can honestly say that these expectations were exceeded in every way. This property is amazing! My children enjoyed every moment and can't wait to return again next year. Only 2 hours away from the Phoenix Metroplex, yet 30 degrees cooler. You will not be disappointed!

This cabin was so beautiful!

  • 5 of 5


Thank you for trusting our family to stay in your home. I know that you made an exception allowing our dogs. We so appreciate it. Your home is beautiful and for a brief moment I pretended that it was mine! Thank you for the home appeal. The furnishings were plentiful and we didn't have a single need. We enjoyed grilling and sitting out on the back patio. The fire pit was was awesome!! We spotted elk early this morning too. I can't say enough about your home. Thank you for sharing it with us.
