I go here every few months and always have a wonderful time. I took my parents (visiting from IL) and my brother, sil and nephew and we rented one of the small cabins on the creek and 1 of the tandem units. It was perfect. We had a nice porch, great creek access and I got to go to my...

The cabin #9 was well equiped and clean. Beds were comfortable, plenty of hot water for 5 people. There was a "no burn" in the charcoal grill due to the fire threat but there was a gas grill for all to use. We were able to use the fire place after checking because there are screens on the chimneys so...

stayed 1 night, paid for 2. My wife and kids refused to stay another night and they wouldn't give us our money back so we waited until about 9 at night and drove in to Payson where we got a room at majestic mountain inn.

Hello. Please read our quick reply. The guest made no real complaints other than the place smelled of gas. There is zero (zero) gas on the property. Even though the last time there was any gas on the property was over 3 years ago we checked the room out and it smelled like a clean room in the woods would...

Our cabin was nestled right along Christopher Creek. There are other cabins nearby but we enjoyed our privacy the whole weekend. The cabin was clean, attractive, everything worked fine. There is a nice little convenience store within walking distance, and a good restaurant bar, also within walking distance the other direction. The cabin had plenty of space, we could have...

I booked my stay at Christopher Creek Lodge for three days and that a wonderful time. I traveled with 5 small children and they accommodated us with an extra bed. The grounds were very clean, the staff was wonderful, and the scenery was beautiful. I'm excited to be going back in the winter when there is snow and we can...

My husband and I stayed at Christopher Creek Lodge to celebrate our anniversary in March 2011. We stayed for one night, on a weekday and there wasn't many people there, which was nice. We got a cabin right on the creek toward the end of the park. What a great location! It was so nice to sit on the patio...

The environment is serene and relaxing. Great place for families to get away and spend quality time together or a romantic getaway. The cabins are extremely clean well kept and the staff is friendly and very helpful. This will definitely be a destination that I continue to frequent.

I came with my boyfriend to spend a weekend during a big forecasted snow storm. Christopher creeks offer rustic charm deep in the woods of a unique arizona landscape. The rooms have everything you need, except for internet service, but if you're looking to get away, maybe it's not so bad to be disconnected for a day or two.

Thanks for the kind review. I did want to mention that currently we Do have Free wi-fi/Internet Access for guests, but it often does not reach some of the farther cabins. For guests needing to check email we recommend they sit in our lobby area near the office where usually a good Internet connection can be had (unless there is...
