Looking to getaway from the daily grind or just searching for some peace and quiet? Well, our friends at the Forest Service might have what you’re looking for. The national forests of Arizona’s Rooms with a View cabin rental program offers both comfortable and rustic accommodation in several national forests. And now, Coronado National Forest has added three more cabins to its roster. Check it out:

The Coronado National Forest has completed the  renovation of three cabins located on the Douglas and Santa Catalina Ranger Districts. The Portal Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) House and the Portal Bunkhouse are located in Cave Creek Canyon, Approximately 1.5 miles west of Portal, Arizona.

Recreation fees will include day and overnight use of each of the cabins. The Portal CCC House ($125.00/night) has four rooms and can accommodate up to five people. The house contains two bedrooms (one with a full size bed, the second with a set of bunkbeds), one bathroom, a living room/kitchen combination, a fully-equipped kitchen, and an outdoor patio.

    I stayed in the Palisades Ranger Cabin for a weekend in January 2019. It is an older cabin but it was just updated a few years ago and has everything you would need to cook in the kitchen. There are great views and it just a few miles to Summer Haven, but along with all of your bedding, linens, and food, you also need to bring toilet paper, take your trash home with you, and clean and mop before you leave. It is a great deal even without maid service. Don’t forget to bring a “gift” for the cabin as others have done–cleaning supplies, spices for the kitchen, paper goods, books to read, games, paper for the journal, and/or anything you feel the next guest would enjoy. Enjoy your stay!
