Quaint Wood Cabin In Shade Trees With Stone Patio Overlooking East Verde River

Welcome to our cherished private cabin, a beloved family treasure since 1970 and one of the original 12 showcase cabins nestled in the serene Beaver Valley along the East Verde River, just outside of Payson, Arizona, a mere 8 paved miles away. Beaver Valley, a 200-acre development, is ensconced within the breathtaking expanse of the 2.8 million-acre Tonto National Forest.

Maintained with utmost care, our cabin retains its original charm, both inside and out, boasting a warm knotty pine interior and exterior. The cozy western-style furnishings, including a couch and matching chairs in pristine condition, evoke a sense of nostalgia, complemented by original maps and a charming antique 1905 wind-up wall-mounted telephone. Towering 300-year-old hardwood trees provide delightful shade, while a new stone patio, overlooking the river just 75 feet away, offers the perfect setting for leisurely BBQs or basking in the gentle river breezes.

Each bedroom offers picturesque views of the river, providing a serene ambiance with cool summer breezes and the soothing sounds of nature’s symphony year-round. Accessible via paved roads year-round, our cabin serves as an ideal gateway to explore the wonders of the surrounding wilderness.

Embark on endless adventures amidst miles of forest trails and discover countless fishing spots teeming with native rainbow trout (AZ fishing license required) along the unspoiled East Verde River. Whether you’re fishing, swimming along the riverbank, or exploring the ancient caves and Indian ruins nearby, there’s no shortage of excitement.

Our quaint two-bedroom, one-bath cabin, with accommodations for up to five guests, features rustic yet comfortable furnishings, reminiscent of the wild west. The kitchen is equipped with modern amenities, including a new refrigerator and microwave, alongside a perfectly functional 1965-era electric stove/oven.

Perfect for families, our cabin offers a range of outdoor activities, including a community field right in front of the cabin and a fenced children’s play yard just a short stroll away. With sandy riverbank sections providing ample sun and shade, it’s an ideal playground for children and anglers alike. While there’s no internet service, cell phone access is available, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in the simplicity of nature and family bonding.

Experience the charm and tranquility of the Double-R Cabin, where time stands still amidst the beauty of nature and the joy of family gatherings. Contact us today for additional information and availability!
