About LINDEN OLSON

We are partially retired farmers from extreme southwest MN. While on vacation in AZ we found this area to be a refreshing change from the grassland prairie we have lived in for most of our lives. Warmer in the winter than MN and cooler in the summer than southern AZ this scenic area offers many attractions and activities for those who like hiking, sightseeing, shopping, rock climbing, simple relaxation or any number of other individual or family interests.

LINDEN OLSON purchased this cabin in 2012

Why LINDEN OLSON chose Strawberry

Nestled among tall Ponderosa pines our home offers something for everyone whether it is for rest, relaxation and rejuvenation; a get away or escape; or a cozy place curl up with a good book or to come back to after a day of hiking in a forest, desert or mountain setting; antiquing; horseback riding; mountain biking; skiing; boating; shopping or sightseeing. Eat in one of a variety of good area restaurants or prepare a meal using our fully equipped kitchen and/or gas grill. Get a refreshing night of sleep in a good bed in a quiet area. If you are in the right place at the right time you may get a glimpse of some of the elk, deer, squirrels, birds, coyotes, javelinas or other wildlife that inhabit the area. Enjoy antiquing or/and looking at artistic creations in Strawberry, Pine, and Payson. Want more? Take a day trip to Sedona or Jericho. Need something? A scenic 19 mile drive down Hwy 87 lies Payson, AZ, a town of 17,000 that offers most of the services of a large city including shops of all kinds, antiquing, golfing and seasonal activities. Want to beat the heat in the summer? Strawberry is about 20 degrees cooler than the valley around Phoenix.

What makes this cabin unique

Spacious, open floor plan, floor to ceiling gas fireplace, wood fireplace (wood included), large floor to ceiling windows, great natural lighting and view of Strawberry mountain, well furnished kitchen with island, wireless internet, Dish TV, and much more. You bring the food and personal items and we furnish the rest.

Great Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Great cabin! Relaxing getaway from the city and close to Fossil Creek Springs/Waterfall trailheads among other places in the area. It has everything you need/all the comforts from home and more! My kids LOVED the house/property so much that they wanted to stay at the cabin rather than go on hikes! Definitely plan on coming back when in the area again!

Perfect getaway home!

  • 5 of 5

The home had everything we needed for our trip and Charlie was a wonderful host. We were able to use the kitchen for multiple meals and had no problems as lots of items were there for us to use. We also were able to grill and use the fire pit at night. The only issue that arose was quickly taken care of by Charlie; at check in he mentioned a DVD player being available but when we went to use it we realized it didn’t work. Charlie tracked down another one in about an hour and helped us out. We will definitely stay here again when traveling to this area.
