Photos and Description of the Whispering Pines vacation house rental

2 Bedroom, 2.5 Bath, Maximum guest party of 4

No pet fees! Low cleaning fee! Central Air Conditioning! You want to get away from it all? Look no further for the right property to visit! The Dog House is a dog-friendly 2 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom home (maximum of 4 human guests, regardless of age) with a large wrap-around deck and a fenced in yard (4' chain link). You will see and enjoy the views from the deck - beautiful trees and ridges to see and the sky is usually amazing as well.

You'll have wifi, Directv, comfortable furniture, and plenty of space!

We are just 1/2 mile from the East Verde River if you want to go and play in the cool water. Otherwise, there are plenty of hiking trails around and the national forest right out our back yard! You won't see your neighbors, except the wildlife.

The house has a large great room complete with comfy furniture, and windows galore! The room is overlooked by the loft, which we've set up to use as a reading nook or game room. We've assembled a fairly good collection of board games to enjoy on a rainy afternoon or cold winter's night.

The kitchen is complete with all appliances, including coffee maker, microwave and dishwasher. We've stocked some basic spices as well as coffee, tea, and hot chocolate.

Wildlife sightings so far: bobcat, elk, white tail deer, raccoons, coyotes, rabbit. We've seen bear prints, but no bear yet!

We are licensed by and pay taxes to the State of Arizona for this business. We also donate 5% of our gross income to a local animal shelter.

Holidays require longer stays.

Please note: there are three steps from the living room to the rest of the house, and five steps from the back yard or front yard to the deck/front door. This may be difficult for senior pets or pets with walking problems. We added a ramp (Sept, 2014) from the master bedroom to the back porch to provide older pets an alternative to stairs.
