Fully Equipped Kitchen & Laundry room w/ washer & dryer, Cabin Decor (Trout, Elk & Bear Rm). Living room w/leather sectional, 2 recliners. Custom Kitchen Table & Fireplace Mantels made of Juniper. Gas grill & Fire ring. For the fishing enthusiast: 2 fly tying tables, a fishing rod holder inside & wader hanger outside. Dog friendly (up to 2 good dogs) For hunters: Excellent Elk & Turkey hunting w/ Tonto National Forestry access less than 1/4 mile from cabin. In greatroom, 42 inch Phillips flatscreen LCD HDTV with Blue Ray player, Free Netflix and Pandora. Fireplace firewood is provided only in winter season for 2 fireplaces (one in kitchen and other in greatroom). Fire ring firewood (pine) is sometimes stacked near fire ring, but is NOT guaranteed. We are unable to restock fire wood for guest stays except winter season since it is over $300 a cord and there has been some miss use, but it may be collected (for Free) in nearby Tonto National Forest for 'small camp fires for free'. There are many places they have thinned the forest and any cut or downed trees can be taken. You can also purchase bundles at the local gas stations, Home Depot, Walmart, grocery stores, etc... in Payson. We have 2 ceramic heaters. One on each floor. Feel free to place them where you want. (They use much less electricity than baseboard heat.) When you arrive at cabin, if the ceramic heaters are not enough, please turn on baseboard heaters until you have time to light fireplaces. There is one located in bathroom and Bear room downstairs and a thermostat at top of stairs on the left side of wall for the living room. There is one in the Elk room too. Also, the fireplace dampers/flutes are closed. Before starting fires please look up and pull the black bar forward to you to open so fire smoke goes up chimney. If one fireplace is not in use keep that damper closed so smoke from the other fireplace doesn't reenter home because the chimney stacks are next to each other. From our and other guests it is best to place firewood as far back from front as possible to encourage smoke up flute and when first lighting it to heat up the chimney stack with a firestarter stick (not able to keep firestarter log/sticks stocked at cabin. Please bring. Have long matches though). These are just tricks you may already know. When the fire is out its best to close flute as soon as possible, because when the chimney stack cools down it can drive cold smoky air in. If that happens, just open the windows and run the ceiling fans. Note: They are on winter setting. Fishing licenses can be purchased at the camping, hunting, outdoor sports counter of Walmart in Payson. Even in the winter, there is hold over trout at the 1st and 2nd wet bridges. They are the smarter ones that lasted thru the angler season so they are spooky, but if you catch one you are the master! A honey hole document for fishing hot spots will be sent with directions and cabin keyless entry code a day or 2 prior to stay. Please indicate on your inquiry whether you have a dog or 2. There is a flat rate fee for 1 good dog= $50 per stay and 2 good dogs= $75 per stay. This is a no smoking property inside. Please follow all local forestry restrictions for outside as the drought meter changes from green to red depending on local conditions and weather. More
