P.S. If you're booking our cabin as a special romantic surprise get away and need a little extra something special like flowers, wine, champagne, etc. set up in advance please message the owner well in advance and we can probably help you out (at cost). Guest AccessThe interior of house, deck, and yard are fully accessible. The garage & locked cabinet in laundry room are off limits. A temporary guest access code will be texted to you the morning of your stay. PLEASE text owner if you haven't received it before you head to Pine! Interaction with GuestsOwners are easily reached via text or voice calls. It takes us 90minutes to get to Pine so you won't see us unless it's an emergency. If you ever need to contact the owners our numbers are printed in the Cabin Manual or you can message through Airbnb anytime. After booking you will be texted a temporary door code the morning of your reservation to let yourselves in. If you haven't received it prior to heading to pine PLEASE feel free to text/msg us! The NeighborhoodPLEASE be respectful (aka quiet) to and for neighbors. I don't know if it's the trees or the lack of bustling city traffic but WOW do voices carry here in the woods! The deer and elk that walk through our yard are surprisingly stealthy and do not spook as easily as you'd think!
Pine is a small town with a population of about 1,900 with a grocery store, museum, library, post office, shops, restaurants, bars, ice cream shops, even a hardware store, nail/hair salon, & two gas stations. Plus a Walmart, chain restaurants, etc are in Payson only about 15 miles away.
Acres of hiking & biking trails, waterfalls, swimming streams, boating, kayaking, fishing, horseback riding, & golf all very nearby.
In the manual at the cabin you will find some trail maps and local restaurant menus. Getting AroundLess than 1/4 mile walk from the house to downtown Pine grocery store, wine tasting, restaurants, shops, hiking, biking, and ATV trails. Other Things to NoteStairs are required to get to main level and downstairs bedrooms.
There's a regular coffee pot with reusable filter and an electric water kettle. Coffee, tea, ketchup, mustard, & basic spices provided. Propane BBQ grill. I try to keep it full but if it ever runs out the cost to fill to use is on you. The gas station across from the hardware store does refills. It cost me about $9 to refill when it was completely empty and swaps are about $20+.
We don't provide air mattresses for extra guests. Only sleeps 8 (2 in Master King, 2 in Queen, & 4 in single twin bunk beds).
There aren't any alarm clocks in any of the bedrooms because you're on "Pine Time" (aka vacation).
There is NO trash service at Pine Time cabin. Please pack out whatever you hauled in. The Texaco gas station (toward Strawberry) has a $2/bag dumpster if you don't want to haul it home.
You may want to bring your own:
• paper towels if you use those (we don't & there are plenty of towels)
• folding camp chairs for sitting around the fire-pit.
