Why you should stay: Luxurious, creekside stay in a gated community with lots of space.

  • Sleeps: 12
  • Minimum Stay: 4 nights
  • Rates from: $399/night

This Torreon luxury cabin is fantastic for large groups or families who want to stay in a high-end rental that offers a mixture of classic cabin vibes, but also a touch of luxury. Think mountain resort, versus outdated cabin in the woods.

There’s a live, full-sized tree in the middle of the living space, supporting the second floor. A huge wall of windows offers spectacular forest views in the living space. A two-sided fireplace keeps you cozy no matter where you are on the first floor.

Additional multiple fireplaces exist throughout the home, including one in the owners suite, right beside the deep soaking tub.

2. Show Low Western Cabin

Why you should stay: Lux cabin with plenty of gathering spaces plus quick access to lots of fun activities.

  • Sleeps: 10
  • Minimum Stay: 1 night
  • Rates from: $338/night

This sweet cabin has more of a western vibe than a cabin-in-the-woods feel — and the large painting of longhorn cattle over the fireplace can likely attest to that. The large property offers all sorts of luxury amenities to keep you comfortable and entertained, including a game room, wood-burning fireplace and outdoor spaces with a fire pit and grill.

However, one of this cabin’s most attractive features is its location. You’re just a few miles away from some of the best area attractions. Pick from a handful of hiking trails. Get outdoors without strapping on your hiking boots at spots like Show Low City Park, Fool Hollow Lake Recreation Area and White Mountain Family Fun Park, all under 10 miles away. If you want to stay indoors, you’re only a short drive from a casino, as well as multiple spas.

3. Private Torreon Retreat

Why you should stay: A big lux space with a cozy vibe tucked away in the woods.

  • Sleeps: 10
  • Minimum Stay: 3 nights
  • Rates from: $395/night

Love a lot of the cabins that you see for rent, but hate how wide and open some of them are? Do you think they feel practically cavernous? Longing for a cozier cabin, but still need a place where the entire crew can comfortably spread out? This private Torreon retreat offers you the best of both worlds.

This bad boy is large, at 2,800 square feet, and sleeps 10 guests over four bedrooms, but despite its size, it still mostly feels cozy and intimate. While there are a lot of living spaces and seating areas, they all feel mostly huddled together — great if you have a group that often likes to break away into smaller groups of three or four.

What all can your little groups enjoy? They can gather around the outdoor fireplace on the deck; another deck area offers dining space, with a grill tucked into one corner. The living room is close enough that it keeps everyone together, rather than all spread out over the entire first floor, for cozy evening conversations. The kitchen is likewise intimate, with its bar seating and breakfast nook.

4. Mountain Chalet on One Acre

Why you should stay: A modern, spacious cabin with all the amenities.

  • Sleeps: 12
  • Minimum Stay: 2 nights
  • Rates from: $521/night

This updated and remodeled chalet is anything but old-fashioned. Light wood ceilings and light tile floors make the space bright and airy versus dark and dingy. Sleek furnishings lend a modern aesthetic to the living room and kitchen. New lighting fixtures are exactly what you’d expect to see in any new-build, urban home.

But even with all this updated style, you still get to enjoy all of the things you like about a cabin that aren’t attached to the aesthetic. Think a roaring fireplace, a spacious deck for sunbathing, a large lush lawn where you frequently get wildlife visitors. Trust me — this is one cabin stay that you won’t be able to keep from posting all over Instagram.

Why you should stay: Stay right near the links with mountain-modern interior design.

  • Sleeps: 14
  • Minimum Stay: 3 nights
  • Rates from: $528/night

This golf course cabin is an excellent pick if you’re planning a trip to Show Low just for the golfing. It’s also very big, with three owners suites, so a nice option if you’re traveling with multiple couples, plus all the kids.

While the exterior is 100% cabin, the interior is modern and artsy, with lots of sleek lines and black-on-white decor choices. Those three owners suites come with two steam showers. The kids, meanwhile, get a large bunk room that’s connected to their own bathroom, as well as a game and movie room. When it’s time to come together, you have plenty of options, from the cozy living space with its fireplace, to the large covered deck.

6. Whispering Pines Retreat

Why you should stay: A stylish cabin with gobs of entertainment options.

  • Sleeps: 10
  • Minimum Stay: 3 nights
  • Rates from: $600/night

Maybe when you’re gauging the luxury factor of a cabin stay, you focus more so on the entertainment amenities than you do things like steam showers and hot tubs. If that’s you, check out the Whispering Pines Retreat, which is huge (at more than 3,000 square feet), but with a relatively smaller number of bedrooms (four), so it works well for both big and small groups.

An EV/Tesla plug in the garage can charge your electric vehicle, stat. Digital entertainment amenities include a YouTube TV subscription, Wii and classic Nintendo consoles. However, beyond the digital entertainment, there are far more other entertainment amenities provided, such as golf clubs, sports balls, frisbees, tennis rackets, pickle ball rackets, corn hole, sleds, a skate board, bocce ball set, fishing poles, mountain bikes, a horseshoe pit and even scooters. And this extensive list literally just scratches the surface! There’s a lot more to come. If you’re bored at this cabin, it’s entirely your own fault.

If you’re a traveler who just loves the smell of fresh paint when you walk into a rental or a hotel, this cabin is for you. While many cabins — even the remodeled and refreshed ones — around the area are on the older side, this new-build option is as new as it gets.

From the shiny, un-scuffed floors to the new appliances, the fresh carpet to the new landscaping, there’s not an outdated spot in sight. A lot of the special touches give a nod to the property’s newness as well, such as the modern tile work in the bathrooms and the stylish soaking tub in the owners suite. The back deck overlooks the local golf course and the property is within a gated community.

One awesome aspect of the property’s location is its proximity to multiple lake access points. You have four different lake access options, including access at Show Low Lake and Rainbow Lake, all in under a 16-mile drive. Golfing, hiking and other activities are also within easy reach.
