Description of the Tucson vacation cabin rental
This incredible mountain home can be yours for two days or more . With plenty of trees and lots of shade, there is no place more quiet , cool and serene than this cabin on Mt. Lemmon. Located just a short 45 minute drive from the valley of Tucson , AZ , Mt. Lemmon is 20 - 30 degrees cooler , receives 2 to 3 times more rain and is a world apart from the Sonoran desert below . Imagine sweltering in 100 + degree temps and just 45 minutes away being in the cool whispering pines where day time temperatures average in the 70' s and night time temps during the summer are in the 50' s.

The average temperature is 20 to 30 degrees cooler here than on the desert floor.

This cabin was constructed in 2002 and purchased new . Since that time I have added a lower floor which doubles as a fifth bedroom , media center , houses a laundry room and another bathroom. Last summer I added a 940 square foot deck which wraps the whole upper floor. There was originally a covered deck with balcony on the upper floor , now there is a new open deck which extends that covered balcony space and brings outside life into the trees . It is the perfect place to spend a summer day in a hammock , invite some friends over for breakfast or relax after dinner before the summer storms roll in .

Once night time falls retreat to the interior of this hunting lodge style cabin to watch some favorite movies , some satellite TV , read , play a board game or sleep with the sound of the wind whispering through the trees that surround the cabin .

During the winter and sometimes on cooler summer nights, the house is warmed by a gas stove on the upper floor and a gas heater on the lower floor . There are three bathrooms, one on each floor. Two have showers and the upper floor features a Jacuzzi tub. With queen beds in each bedroom and sleeping area and one loft bedroom with a double bed and single , a single day bed in the living room along with a queen size convertible and cots , this cabin can accommodate your family and friends for a weekend or a week whatever your pleasure .

This is my private home and I have decorated it with personal belongings . I hope that you respect the fact that I am sharing my home with you and respect the decorations in the house as if they were your own .

Area Information
Located .2 miles west of the community of Summerhaven this cabin is locted in the trees and underbrush of one of the few untouched areas and most sought after areas on the mountain where evidence of past fires in unnoticeable .

Within walking distance of town and many hiking trails this area offers the desert dweller respite from the summer heat of the Tucson valley below .

This area of the mountain is pristine in its beauty because it has been untouched by the fires of the past. It is also in a box type of canyon and become nearly inaccessible and treacherous in the winter after a snow fall. The cabin may be closed after the first large snow fall until the mid to late spring.

Please check the calendar for available dates before you make your reservation request.
