Research nearby attractions and create an itinerary that includes a mix of exploration and relaxation. Stop by the Black Mesa Ranger Station in Overgaard for maps of the area.


3. Pack Thoughtfully.

Packing efficiently ensures you have everything you need for a comfortable stay. Pack appropriate clothing and gear for outdoor activities, including sturdy shoes, sunscreen, hats, and water bottles. While our cabin rentals contain the essentials such as toiletries, linens, and limited cooking supplies, there are also stores in the surrounding area for anything else you may need.


4. Embrace Relaxation.

A cabin getaway offers the perfect opportunity to unwind and reconnect with your family. Take advantage of amenities such as cozy fireplaces, scenic views, and spacious decks.
