The Gray Family

Meet Kara and Steve, the dynamic duo on a mission to escape the scorching embrace of Phoenix, Arizona. Starting this journey a year ago, when they stumbled upon the secret to survival in the sweltering summer heat – a quick getaway to Pinetop Lakeside. Just a stone's throw from the Valley of the Sun, it's their little slice of paradise, where sanity is regained, adventures are had, and relaxation reigns supreme. Join us as we delve into their journey of vacation rentals, a tale as refreshing as the cool mountain air they've come to cherish. Welcome to the world of Kara and Steve, where the heat is no match for their vacation beat!

"We're passionate about travel! Crafting memorable experiences for our guests is our top priority. Our cabins reflect the love we have for this, and we hope you enjoy them as much as we do. As we transitioned from management by a company to owner management, 5-star reviews have become crucial. Our reviews from the past year do not transfer to our new site, so your feedback is even more vital. We strive for 5-star stays, so don't hesitate to share your thoughts directly with us if you feel we can improve, and we ask that you provide us an opportunity to make things right if you run into an issue. Thank you for being a part of our journey."

GrayBear Cozy Cottage was affectionately named in honor of our beloved Grey cat (Greyson), fondly nicknamed "Bear", and, of course, it also playfully incorporates a connection to our last name.

In cherished memory of Greyson Gray, who found joy in pushing things off the counter and curling up in boxes. Your presence is deeply missed!
