I have always loved Arizona not only is it beautiful but it's also always nice and sunny! Recently, however, I decided to visit the mountains of Arizona and I have to say it, even though I usually love sunny days, the mountains were more incredible than I could have ever imagined. Before trying to decide where I wanted to stay I obviously visited a few dozen websites to try to get a feel for the best one for what I needed it for; some good old R&R. I visited around a few sites, narrowed them down and came to my top three choices. Of course the one I picked was number one, but they really are all fantastic in their own way.
The Spruce Lodge -
I tell ya it was super hard for me to pick which one I liked the best because all three are absolutely amazing. This 3 bedroom, den, 2 bath log sided home is well over 1900 square feet. The kitchen opens to an expansive Great Room with a rustic rock fireplace and pine log mantel. Cozy aspen ceilings warm the Great Room and Den. You will enjoy the privacy of the split bedroom plan. The Master Retreat features its own covered deck, walk- in closet, and private bath with jetted tub. Features include; gas fireplace, BBQ, jetted tub, refrigerator, range, microwave, washer and dryer, 3 covered decks, 2 car garage, high speed wireless Internet, AC and hear and along with the other rentals above; restaurants, shopping, golf, antique shops, cinemas, lakes, streams, hiking, and much more is nearby!
The Ponderosa Lodge -
Another favorite. This is a home that is built on a hill in the Pine top Country Club area, it's about one half acres big and is surrounded by huge pine and oak trees. All of these homes have a very rustic feel to them which I personally loved. It's nice getting away from the city for a while! Pine top's restaurants, tennis, golf, hiking, equestrian center, casino, antique shops, wild life viewing, and new cinema are MINUTES away! This is awesome if you want to go out to eat but also want to be far enough away to have some peace and quiet. A few features you can look forward to are 2 bedrooms plus a loft, large screen TV, DVD, and CD, rock fireplace, hot tub, BBQ, patio table and chairs, refrigerator, microwave, range and dishwasher along with some really nice features you might have in your own home such as washer and dryer, garage, central heat and large walk in closets!
Juniper Lodge -
This house has almost 1800 square feet as well as 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. Pine top Crossing is a charming enclave of log sided homes in a private setting. When you see the impressive elk entry feature; you know you have arrived! The Juniper lodge is conveniently located to Highway 260 for quick access to restaurants, casino, new cinema, antique shops and more! Golf, tennis, hiking, cycling, equestrian center, and wildlife viewing are MINUTES away! Enjoy lakes, streams, Sunrise Ski Resort, trophy elk hunting, sledding, boating, and more within about 30 minutes away. A few features you can look forward to are large screen TV, DVD, and CD, fireplace, BBQ, refrigerator, microwave, range and dishwasher along with some really nice features you might have in your own home such as washer and dryer, garage, central heat and gated community for privacy.
These are rental homes you absolutely have to check out the next time you are in Arizona or your planning on going there for a vacation. It doesn't matter if it's a short weekend or an entire month, you owe it to yourself to check these out! Of course prices vary on all three of these so please take a look and see which one can give you the best benefits for your dollar! Again, all three are really nice and have a nice quiet, rustic, woodsy feel to them. If you're an outdoors person, you will like these. If you like a touch of luxury you will like these. And if you like both, then you will LOVE these!
