Me and my family have been staying at Molly butler lodge for the fourth of July for the last six years. Everything about our stay is always exceptional. The staff at the lodge is always helpful with any need or concern we have regarding the lodge or the surrounding area. We have been more than happy to call Molly butler's our home for every fourth of July reunion we have

I recently stayed at one of Molly Butler's cabins, Johnson's River Retreat, and think it was the perfect "Greer experience". I stayed there with only my friend and my boyfriend, but the space was huge and had room for way more people. I think we felt spoiled to have such a large, beautiful yard (with a river, multiple bridges, a hammock, fire pit and so much more) to wake up to and spend time just relaxing outside. The cabin itself was amazing too - filled with tons of details that made the place super cozy. When we left the cabin we had a great time too! We ate at Molly's restaurant many times while there and spent a few evenings in the bar as well. The food was delicious and the bar had such a great environment (I learned how to play shuffleboard!).
We didn't want to leave. Definitely looking forward to another trip soon!

I have had the chance to stay in a couple of the Molly Butler Lodge Cabins and found the experience very good. What makes the trip to Greer "Excellent" is the opportunity to relax in a beautiful community, sweet temperatures, and always fun things happening at Molly's Place in the middle of town. The bar is very friendly, great drinks, and super food is served...whether it is just a light meal or a full blown lunch or dinner....good service and very good food. It is great any time of year, but the summertime visit makes for a very nice break from the heat!!

Room Tip: A cabin within walking distance to Molly's Place is very convenient!

The Red Setter is now managed by Molly Butler Lodges. We stayed in one of the three cabins across the Little Colorado and were thoroughly pleased. Very clean, and everything functioned. The gas fireplace blazed while the sound of the river lulled us to sleep. The loft was furnished with a bed but beware, the pull out stairs are more ladder than stairs so aren't really usable for very young children (I think they say 12 y/o) or elderly. The grassy area has been manicured and all of the lawn furniture refurbished. Definitely worth the price.

The first week in July my traveling comrade and I headed for the hills to start out a cool, crisp getaway. Our first stop was in Greer, located in the refreshing Apache Sitgreaves National Forest of eastern Arizona, where we came upon our first taste of wilderness charm at the Molly Butler Cabins. We pulled up to our appropriately named Little Cabin in the Woods that waited for us quietly amongst the fresh air and pines. The meticulously maintained 2-story cabin was whimsical and well-outfitted and perfectly suited for us with a large porch, dining table for games of scrabble and a swing postured perfectly to enjoy the massage of the gentle breeze.
Our sleepy haven offered privacy and a relaxed atmosphere with the surroundings of a nearby main street and country road that were one of the same. The views included the plush valley lined with the largest ponderosa pine and alpine in the world is coupled by the whisper of the little Colorado River that guides you through town. The scenic village offers genuine charm with its Greer Community Center that houses the Greer Library and Chapel as well as its historic dining options.
You may also embrace the view at Arizona’s oldest lodge, the Molly Butler. We found both the Molly Butler Cabins and Lodge to be a part of our memorable experience. The authentic early Arizona hunting lodge offered us specialties that included prime rib and fresh seafood that went toe to toe with our Little Cabin in the Woods. One could also find the Rendezvous Diner a few steps away that served up a few homemade dishes of their own.
Beautiful scenery, big blue skies, and the crisp mountain air infused with the clean scent of Ponderosa pine served as the backdrop for our daily excursions. This included numerous groomed trails of wilderness when stepping out of our Little Cabin in the Woods. Some of our many trail options included the nearby Saffel Canyon off highway vehicle trail that provides a panoramic view carpeted by wildflowers or a stroll through the Butler Canyon Trail nature trail that will provide you with a plethora of information about the wildlife, plants and different habitats along your way.
The Rivers and Streams of the White Mountains provide excellent fishing, photography, biking with wildlife abound. Lakes are filled with trout, and there are 600,000 acres of national forest where man is in the minority whereby wild creatures are the year-round residents.
The Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest offers an abundance of year-round activities for outdoor enthusiasts who enjoy both nature and solitude. At 8,500 feet it is easy to create a heavenly rendezvous of your own with recreation in all directions.

We just returned from a week at several of these cabins: Amberwood, Cowley's, Hurd, Musil Haven and Braided Rug. We had 26 people and had a great time.
The cabins were fancy, but not overly so.
We could have used advance warning that there was no a/c but it was cool enough, except when we were cooking.
A few ammenities were missing, a dryer in one cabin, and a busted hot tub in another.
Overall, great place.
The location was great, cool mountain spot; cabins were close enough to bike around and gather each night at one place for meals. One warning, like most places this says it will sleep 8, but watch out or your granny will be sleeping on a futon!
The staff at Greer Cabin Keepers were exceptional, answering tons of questions prior to arrival, printing directions to nearby attractions, and facilitating other activities like boat rentals, bike rentals and ATV rentals.
We go to all different kinds of places for our annual gathering, and this is just the right speed for a family that wants to enjoy nature and each other.

Room Tip: Musil Haven had the most updated kitchen. Watch your bed counts closely to be sure everyone has a re...

We rented this recently-remodeled cabin for a 10-person ski/sledding getaway and really enjoyed our stay. The two-story space is large yet cozy, with a big wood-burning fireplace (there's plenty of firewood stacked on the huge porch). It's also located on a steep hill, perfect for sledding if you don't feel like driving the 20 miles to the Sunrise Ski Resort. Stock up on groceries at Pinetop-Lakeside (there's no grocery stores in Greer), or head over and grab some food at the charming main lodge. We''l be back!
