I stayed for two weeks at this resort and enjoyed every moment! The staff remembered my name from first introducing myself. The studio was extremely clean and I enjoyed the "fireplace". This lodge is on Rainbow Lake. My first recommendation to anyone visiting the White Mountains would be this resort!

Very pleased with the staff and the property. Reservations were made by a family member who lives in the area. The room exceeded our expectations. We had planned on staying only 2 nights, but decided to stay longer. The staff was very accommadating. This was a winter visit and we were very pleased to have a fireplace in our room.... More

The owners had little time to adjust since they had literally taken over a couple hours prior to us arriving but things were is great shape for us considering the situation. I thought... More

I have stayed several times at another property (Territorial Town Inn in Camp Verde, AZ) owned by these people (RelaxInAZ) and been very pleased both with that property and the helpfulness of the RelaxInAZ staff. So, when we decided to travel to this part of Arizona, it was natural that we would look at what they had to offer here.... More

A friend and I drove to the resort from Sedona. The cabin was not what I expected. We were given a set of towels and wash cloths, but only one hand towel for 2 people. For $100.00 a night another hand towel could have been supplied. The steps leading up to the loft were very creaky. The kitchen only had... More

The accommodations were a good value. My father, brother and I went up to go fishing in the surrounding area but did not want to camp this time. We fished all day and came back to a comfortable stay at night and used the grill to cook up some steaks. We didn't want a Hilton and didn't want to pay... More

The rustic setting adds to the evocativeness and the overall ambience. The only negative comment that I could think of would be the parking. Again the Lewis family and staff were one of the highlights to our visit. Give them a raise or make them partners they truly are an asset to your organization.
