Our beautiful vacation home at 8,200 feet in the
Mountains lies in the shadow of Escudilla, Arizona’s
highest mountain. It is three miles from the
crossroads of
Alpine in eastern Arizona and overlooks the sacred
meadow of Tal Wi Wi.

Charley's is no small cabin. It is comfortably roomy
at 3200 sq. ft. so there is room for everyone.
It sleeps up to 16 people in 4 large bedrooms. Does
your group have more than that? We can handle
that, too. There is a lodge right next door.

You’ll love all the great outdoor recreational
opportunities the area has to offer: hiking, biking,
fishing, hunting and more. You can also enjoy
dozens of activities without ever leaving the property.
Try your hand at archery. Host a ping-pong or
horseshoe tournament. Kids can grab a milk jug and
hunt for crawdads in the ponds. Or just read a book
gently swinging in one of the hammocks.

Whether for a romantic getaway or with a lively group
of family or friends, you’ll return again and again to
create many fond memories at Charley’s Mountain

The village of Alpine is located in eastern Arizona
near the New Mexico border...about 75 miles
southeast of Show Low. It is about a 4.5 hour drive
from Phoenix and about a 4.5 hour drive west of

October 18, 2005 Michael Kuby Charley's Place, Alpine AZ
At 8,000 feet above sea-level, this place is a bona fide escape from the heat, way more than Sedona or Pine or Pinetop or even Flagstaff. The house is surrounded by tall pines with a great view of a meadow from the dining room. Lots of room inside and out, and plenty to do. The house is well equipped with kitchen supplies, music, board games, ping-pong, outdoor toys--pretty much anything you'd need for an extended get-away-from-it-all, no-TV stay. And there's so much to see and do in the area. I strongly recommend the hike up Escudilla, the west fork hike to Mt. Baldy (great even if you don't go to the top), the hummingbirds at the bait shop at Luna Lake, or just walking the country lanes from the house.

October 17, 2005 Ernie Tores Charley's Mt. Retreat in Alp
We visited Charley's Mt. Retreat in Alpine on July 27 - 30, 2005. This was a repeat trip to wonderful Alpine and Charley's retreat, my first being in 1979. And, as before, it was beautiful. The cabin is always so clean and comfortable. It is also so large that one can easily find a little niche away from everybody else for a little quiet time.

The cabin is well appointed with a full kitchen and BBQ grill for the master chefs. There are plenty of linens and the baths are very nice.

Being next door to the Tal-Wi-Wi lodge is also nice for a little evening after-dinner getaway.

Alpine is also a wonderful place to visit. Hiking, fishing, and wild animal watching are all so easy to do. We went to the Hannigan Meadow area for a short hike through the Blue Range Primitive Area and again, it was just beautiful.

You will love this place and the area. We plan to try to come back in the winter for a litte winter recreation.

Phoenix Sportbike Club has stayed at Charley's Mountain in 2003 and 2004 for a week at a time. The cabin has been awesome for our group to use as a staging point for rides up and down the 191 and in the surrounding area! Everything you need is right there or very close by, and there's tons to do int he immediate area!

Jenny has always been very gracious and helpful in getting things ready for our trips up there! We're looking forward to making a return trip sometime in 2006!

I've taken my 4th/5th grade class to Charley's Mountain Retreat in Alpine for their graduation trip for the last five years. It's a comfortable space for roaming and exploring, with lots of opportunities for children and adults to be in nature. The cabin accommodates a large group of people easily and is well equipped. The scenery is breath-taking and the nearby hike up Escudilla Mountain is a hit with everyone. It's a place where stories are born that remain in the hearts of visitors for years to come. I highly recommend it.
