Western Beauty & Refreshing Vacation
If you want a beautiful place to stay for your eastern Arizona vacation, then stay at this cabin. It is a real Western beauty, constructed from native Ponderosa pine milled at the nearby Nutrioso sawmill. The owners, Ken and Karen Struthers, have made it very comfortable and pretty, with all the conveniences needed. The cabin is extremely clean and well-maintained. And they made sure to ask us if there was anything else we needed. Set on their 20 acre property, you can watch the full moon rise over Escudilla Mountain, and have a delightful experience watching the hummingbirds and a variety of perching birds frequent the backyard feeders. Alpine, AZ is nearby and it is is famous for gorgeous scenery at its high altitude. We drove through the Blue River wilderness area, and the Sipe Wildlife viewing area (set on 1,300 acres.) Much of this area is in the Apache Sitgreaves National Forest and there are many beautiful locations to enjoy. And plenty of hiking trails too. In Alpine we enjoyed lunch at the Bear Wallow Cafe. In Springerville, we appreciated Junk and Java, and had a fun and interesting conversation with the owners as we had our coffee - if you are a coffee shop person, they have all the fancy coffees here as well as my favorite, Americano. And we learned some local history from the owners. Our vacation here was great and met all our expectations and more -- my husband and I plan to return. And we are recommending it to our friends.
