About Ms. Evans

I grew up in Arizona and call it my home. This cabin has had many special memories with my children. It is where I truly find my creativity.

Ms. Evans purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Ms. Evans chose Payson

I purchased this home to get away from the heat in the Valley. We used to come up every Friday and return home just in time for school on Monday.

Beautiful Property

The stay was wonderful, if short, however I full plan on coming back. Its a beautiful area, no traffic. Very private with multiple places to relax, including being right on a wonderful creek. Very highly recommended.

Nice and Relaxing

  • 3 of 5

We had fun with the kiddos . Not very hard to get to the place from the main road. .

Just need a few new things to make the place more attractive I e couch (too big and old ) .bedding Sheets are yucky ! We brought our own thanks god !

The foyer room smells funny when we opened the door to enter the cabin .

Having issues with lockbox since there's no receptions we couldn't call to get the lockbox # . Emailed owner a night before to provide lockbox but was Asked "to call" . Lucky the maids were there to let us in .

Over all it's a quiet , relaxing place love the river on the back deck !

Very peaceful area!

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was clean and well stocked. Had all the necessities, no frills, rustic. The owner was very accommodating, we requested to stay 2 nights with less than a 24hr reservation. VRBO wouldn't allow us to do that but when we contacted the owner she allowed it. The only issue we had was with the lockbox, it was difficult to open and we had a hard time unlocking the cabin as well. Everything else went smoothly!
