This was our first stay at the Wooden Nickel Cabins, and we were immediately impressed with how courteous, friendly, and accommodating they were. First and foremost, there was A/C in the cabin, which was a welcome relief from the 99 degree temps that hit the rim this weekend. Also, these were the cleanest accommodations we have stayed in near the creek. Each patio has a grill, which did the job for the Rainbow Trout the kids caught down the street, and the girls enjoyed the playground and the cattle roaming around the property. Tip: Call them directly instead of booking on AirBNB which charges a service fee. Also, if you pay in cash when you check out, they will give you a small discount.

I called Thomas a few weeks back and spoke to him about a cabin. He was so friendly on the phone and after seeing pics online, I knew this was a beautiful Cabin for my wife,little dog (Annie) and myself to chill out and escape the heat of Phoenix.

When we arrived on Friday, the area is so beautiful and the cabins were perfect. We checked in and saw Thomas and he was still so very friendly and we stayed in The Butch Cassidy Cabin. There are 5 cabins and one large house to rent out. The 5 all have 2 bedrooms, one downstairs and 1 Upstairs,loft. The front porch has a swing and a few chairs. It was adorable, with everything you need for your stay. Very clean and beautifully decorated.

They give you firewood for 1 night to have a fire in their fire-pit out back, which is outside your bedroom with a pick-nick table . You can BBQ, and sit around the fire-pit and smell the pine all around you. If you have kids, they have a play area to keep them busy. My wife and I hiked a little around the property which is so well taken care of. Christopher Creek is down the road, as are some places to eat and go hiking. There is also a Convenience Store close by.

I highly recommend Wooden Nickel Cabins, and we can't wait to go back and hopefully stay longer the next time. The staff are amazing and so friendly. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

The Wooden Nickel is a fabulous place and has 6 cabins fairly close together however each cabin is nicely appointed you will need to bring your own seasonings and some utensils. However don't bring any extra blankets because they have so many blankets and comforters to keep you warm. There is a nice little fireplace in the living room. Its not a wood burning fireplace however outback on your patio you will have a charcoal grill and you will have a real wood fire pit so if you feel the need to get your fire on you can do so. The cabins back up to the forest so nothing is behind you except for natural beauty and hiking and exploring. A fantastic feature of the Wooden Nickel cabins they're pet friendly! please note the cabins are two floors and the animals are not allowed in the loft area so the first floor is relatively small so if you have large breed dogs and you have more than two its going to be a tight squeeze if you have more than one couple in a cabin & dogs. For us it was just the two of us and two dogs more than enough room worked out perfectly the dogs had a blast we had a blast we were very comfortable we were greeted very warmly and the place was very clean and nicely appointed I would highly recommend it for a weekend getaway.

We were looking for a moderate altitude (about 5,700 ft) place for a 3 day stay to escape the Phoenix heat. Needed to go hiking with my pooch and just veg out. My wife isn't in to hiking so she loaded up her kindle. There are five cabins, each with a different name, but nearly identical... a BR downstairs and another bed in the small loft. The "kitchen" is small but adequate for a few days. It has a big screen TV with dish network. We used the AC during the afternoons when it reached high 80s. Bring paper plates and utensils because the ones provided/needed are either well worn or not there. Gas barbeques are just outside. The cabin was clean and comfy. Kelli, the manager, was very interested in our comfort and eager to help.

We used the balcony in the front of the cabin and our dog loved it. We used a folding wire barrier and some bungie cords to block off the entrance so she could be "loose" and not wander.

There are plenty of hiking trails. Don't miss the rim trails (7 miles east) and the See Canyon trail nearby. There are two "country" diners very close in Christopher Creek. So don't bring too much food.

Room Tip: all the cabins are the same

I've stayed in the small cabins and the big cabin both. The staff has been excellent. The cabins are clean and affordable. Lots of room to hike. Very appreciative of the pet friendly availability. Had a great family visit on Mother's Day.
