My husband and I stayed only one night in Pioneer Cabin #2. Our cabin was great, right along the creek. Nice little covered patio outback which was perfect for unwinding. It was just what we needed. Relaxing, healing and peaceful. We walked around the property , the owner's quirky sense of humor showed in the signs along your path along...

I am often up in rim country hiking and biking, and have stayed at various places up here. This place was definitely my favorite. We stayed in the motel rooms, which are their lower priced units. The room was clean, nice, and "felt" like a cabin. I think next time we will spend the extra and get a cabin right...

If you want a fancy hotel then this is not the place for you but......if you want a nice place in the pines with a fireplace, dishes & stove to cook with or just down the road from a restaurant - this is ABSOLUTELY awesome.

We had a great stay at Pioneer Cabin 3 at Christopher Creek Lodge. Very rustic and a perfect getaway from Phoenix. We enjoyed the cool weather and the change of seasons (something we miss here in Phoenix). Our cabin was right on the creek but just on the other side of the creek was the main road. A little noisy...
