About Us

we are your neighbors.


We are Stephanie and Jim Weigold, the owner-operators of Rim Lakes Vacation Rentals, a boutique vacation property management service located in Forest Lakes, Arizona.


We discovered the vacation rental business after personally renting out our family cabin, with the learning curve that comes with it.  We quickly realized the vacation rental homeowners in our area needed a professional property manager that they could trust and count on to take care of their homes the same way they would. While we had been long-time summer residents, we took the plunge in 2016 and moved to our Forest Lakes cabin full-time. We are proud to call the Rim Country home. 


  • With more than 30 years’ of experience in real estate to offer, Stephanie focuses her considerable skills on both back-end organizational needs and the front-end customer experience. Her goal is to offer a positive experience for owners and guests alike.

  • Jim’s strengths have always been his high-quality craftsmanship, mechanical aptitude and a natural problem-solver. He acts as our maintenance engineer and liaison for specialty contractor services, to ensure that our guests receive responsive customer care. Jim is also a NHWA Certified Home Watch Professional and part-time EMT with the Forest Lakes Fire Department.

Rim Lakes Vacation Rentals specializes in short-term rentals within the rural communities of the Mogollon Rim in northeast Arizona.
