There’s a saying that no one passes through Greer — they only come to visit.

The throngs of visitors that flock to Flagstaff, Williams, and Sedona each year are often on their way to other Arizona destinations like the Grand Canyon. But the small town of Greer, in a mountain valley at 8,300 feet above sea level, doesn’t have that issue, making it one of the few truly quiet getaways in Arizona.

In Greer, wildlife abounds: elk, bighorn sheep, black bears, and antelope are all common visitors to the area, and there’s not a developed chain store in sight. Hell, there are only a few places to grab dinner, and of one of ’em — Molly Butler Lodge & Restaurant — has been open since before Arizona was a state.

But the deliberately quiet vibe in Greer is why it’s such an appealing destination, and today, there are more than enough cabin rentals and resorts to make for a comfortable if rustic stay in the White Mountains.

Here are 10 of the best cabin rentals in Greer, from cozy riverfront homes to sprawling chalets perfect for your next family getaway.

1. Two Bears Cabin

Why you should stay: Convenient near-town location that still offers a genuine cabin experience.

  • Sleeps: 6
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights
  • Rates from: $180/night

Two Bears Cabin is one of three homes in Greer Lodge Estates, located on Main Street just south of the main downtown area in Greer. It’s an easy walk from the home to nearby village shops and dining, and trails in the area make it easy to explore the Little Colorado River that meanders behind the cabins. You can park the car and leave it until it’s time to head home.

It’s not secluded by any stretch, but guests looking for easy access to downtown will love its creature comforts – a gas fireplace, large porch, and cozy living spaces – and the fact that it’s so close to the main drag.

2. Whispering Hollow Lodge

Why you should stay: Modern and mid-century furnishings on a sprawling property perfect for families.

  • Sleeps: 15
  • Minimum stay: 3 nights
  • Rates from: $357/night

Most of the cabin rentals in Greer are decidedly rustic. It’s not a bad thing, but it makes Whispering Hollow Lodge one of the few modern homes to rent in the area. The cabin’s furnishings are top-notch and make use of the home’s distinct spaces and corners, from the upstairs game room to the angular-but-cozy living room.

The outside spaces are just as appealing: a large deck overlooks a massive backyard where a swing set and zipline lets kids fly through the high-elevation air with ease. The East Fork trailhead is less than a mile from the home and the surrounding woods ensure scenic sunsets year-round.

3. Wiltbank Street Cabin

Why you should stay: Private cabin in the woods still within walking distance of town.

  • Sleeps: 6
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights
  • Rates from: $165/night

The Wiltbank Street Cabin is south of town and high enough up a hill to feel more secluded than Main Street’s cabin rentals. A small but cozy interior makes the most of the cabin’s square footage, and there’s plenty of room to explore outside.

Recent renovations keep the Wiltbank Street Cabin comfortable and stylish, and though it’s rated for up to six guests, the home works best for couples and small families. It’s one of the very few cabins in Greer where it’s technically close enough to walk to town but doesn’t have a lot of other neighbors.

Why you should stay: Budget-friendly cabin rental for seriously big groups and families, plus pups.

  • Sleeps: 17
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights
  • Rates from: $180/night

You won’t find a more affordable cabin that comfortably fits more than 15 guests than the Shoshone, a cozy home across the way from Greer’s three lakes: Bunch Reservoir, Tunnel Reservoir, and River Reservoir.

The cabin’s two bedrooms might not sound like much, but the large, lofted game room with bunk beds offers plenty of extra space to chill. Outside, a fire pit, horseshoes, and plenty of land offer plenty of opportunities to take in Greer’s clean forest air. Oh, and it’s one of the better dog-friendly cabin rentals in Greer. You can have up to four dogs, which means each family staying in the cabin can bring their four-legged family member along.

Why you should stay: Quiet, traditional log cabin with three bedrooms north of Greer proper.

  • Sleeps: 7
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights
  • Rates from: $225/night

This rustic 3-bedroom cabin north of downtown Greer offers quiet and solitude, which is just one reason it attracts many repeat guests visiting from warmer parts of the state. It’s one of Greer’s best cabin rentals if you just want a quick old-school family getaway, complete with horseshoes and s’more making.

Despite its location, the cabin offers satellite TV and good Wi-Fi, and nearby streams and trails provide endless ways to explore the area. For nearby dining, check out Omnivores Eatery and Bar at Snowy Mountain Lodge.

“This is the second time we’ve stayed here and we love it so much! Can’t wait to come back again.”

Why you should stay: Comfortable, high-end amenities on a quiet property near several lakes.

  • Sleeps: 6
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights
  • Rates from: $295/night

Acorn Lodge sits on a gorgeous acre of land within walking distance of Greer’s lakes. There’s no shortage of things to do here, with horseshoes out back, a hot tub and fire pit on the wrap-around deck, and plenty of hiking nearby. The interior sports lux decor, furniture and bed sheets, and the fireplace brings the whole place together with locally sourced stone and wood.

The inside is lovely, but it’s probably the deck you’ll enjoy most, with several hang-out areas and place for parents to watch while kids run like crazy around the yard.

Why you should stay: Spacious home designed for families who need room for activities.

  • Sleeps: 10
  • Minimum stay: 3 nights
  • Rates from: $255/night

This family-friendly cabin is one of Greer’s most popular (and well-reviewed) rentals. The yard space, backyard fire pit, swing set, and mini-fort make it an ideal option for guests with kids, and adults rave about the home’s quiet setting. It’s on a private acre off Highway 373 before you reach downtown Greer, but not far from the best sights in town.

No dogs allowed in this cabin rental, unfortunately, but you will likely see plenty of wild animals on the front lawn if you happen to wake up early.

“Loved everything about our stay,” said guest April. “Looking forward to renting this cabin next year!”

Why you should stay: Gorgeous riverside log cabin rental for shared family vacations.

  • Sleeps: 12
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights
  • Rates from: $410/night

Just south of town off the west fork of the Little Colorado, River Serenity lives up to its namesake. The two large suites (one on each level) each have their own perks: the top level offers killer views across the river and into the woods, and the bottom has a private deck for enjoying the river’s soft current in person. And they both have roomy soaking tubs.

River Serenity is near the East Fork trailhead and Government Springs trailhead, so a stay here makes hiking damn near mandatory. Be sure to make some time for frolicking in the river and making a bonfire on the “island” in the stream.

9. Three-Story Cabin

Why you should stay: Roomy family cabin with amenities and activities to make sure no one gets bored.

  • Sleeps: 10
  • Minimum stay: 3 nights
  • Rates from: $345/night

Between the rec room, heated garage with a Nintendo Switch and billiards and foosball tables, and wraparound deck with hot tub, there’s no excuse to be bored at this 3-story cabin near Greer Lakes. The one-acre property is fairly close to most of the activities in Greer, and if you’re hanging around the cabin, there’s room to lounge for days.

The home sports all the traditional flair of a high-country cabin: a stone fireplace with wood mantel, light wood interiors, and wooden furniture in most rooms. It’s on a quiet dead-end road, so noise is light and the nights here are perfect for stargazing. Most people who stay here in the winter are taking ski trips to nearby Sunrise Park Resort or heading there to mountain bike and hike in the summer.

“My family and I had a wonderful time here,” said Airbnb guest Stephanie. “The location, spacious clean home, convenience, and peaceful atmosphere made for a wonderful time.”

10. Greer Lodge Resort & Cabins

Why you should stay: Greer’s most well-known cabin resort for more than 70 years.

  • Sleeps: 4-12
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights
  • Rates from: $79/night

There’s never a bad time to visit Greer Lodge Resort & Cabins, which offers 20 cabins, all on the water. Some are on the Little Colorado River while others are on a private trout pond. You can usually snag an off-season deal for a cabin rental in the fall or spring, but summertime is spectacular on the 25-acre grounds, and watching snow fall here in winter is mesmerizing.

The lodge is often listed as one of Arizona’s best mountain getaways, and Sunset Magazine named it one of the country’s best nature hotels in 2010 — and it’s only gotten better since then. It’s a family-owned business and reservations are done over the phone, so it’s a bit old school. But we wouldn’t have it any other way.
