We just spent the weekend at this townhome and it was just beautiful. RIGHT on the lake, all the comforts of home, clean as can be, and the owner was extremely helpful from beginning to end. I recommend this place to everyone!

Our stay at The Water's Edge on Rainbow Lake far
exceeded our expectations! As first-time visitors
to Pinetop-Lakeside, our stay couldn't have been
more perfect! The Brenemans have not overlooked
a single detail when it comes to outfitting their
spacious and comfortable lakefront condo with
every amenity. They were gracious and responsive
to our every need, really made us feel welcome in
their beautiful waterfront condo. What a delight!
We really can't wait to go back!

Truly at the water's edge this was the perfect place
to stay for our family. The unit is spacious, very
comfortable, well appointed & beautifully decorated
- like a model home! Having the two fireplaces was
super nice too. The location on the lake is so quiet
and very relaxing. Saw a huge bald eagle on a
morning walk by the lake. We have already talked
about coming back in the summer to escape the

We thoroughly enjoyed this cozy cabin! It was decorated nicely and had a very warm feel. The was plenty of room, and the option for two different fireplaces was nice too. We had a great time, and plan to stay here again!

We had a wonderful time at the waters edge. The townhome was beautiful and everything we needed was at our fingertips. We loved the area, the restaurants were superb; the ducks,herons and views a delight. We will return soon again. Thank you Kathy for sharing your vacation home with us.

We had a wonderful week at the cabin. It was decorated nicely and when they said the kitchen was fully equiped, they meant it! They even had a spinner to dry the lettuce. We have stayed at other places and the kitchens were barely equiped. There were plenty of towels and extra blankets. Our corkscrew broke and they had several available for us to use along with very nice wine glasses! There was even a step stool for our three year old grandson to use. Being right on the lake was wonderful and beautiful. The balcony and deck are great features. The wireless internet came in handy when we wanted to find a park for him to play in. All in all it was a great experience and we would like to return for another visit.

What a beautiful home! The view of the lake is incredible! We rented a pontoon boat and took all the grandkids out sightseeing and feeding the ducks. On the weekends the ski lift at Sunrise is open so we rode up and hiked down. (You can also take mountain bikes up the lift and bike down.) Pinetop has many restaurants but most of the time we cooked at home in a very well equipped kitchen.

We have stayed in many condos and townhouses over the years. This is one of the nicest. The reservation process was easy. Everything worked at the condo. The condo is fully furnished as described on the web page. The views of the lake are spectaculur. A great place to enjoy the high country of AZ. We will return.

We had an amazing time up at Rainbow Lake. This rental was beyond our expectations. The inside was immaculate and the view of the Lake was amazing. Our children had a great time swimming and fishing on the Lake and we had a wonderful family vacation. We would absolutely recommend this if you are looking for a wonderful place to stay on the Lake. We will definitely be back.

We just spent the most enjoyable Thanksgiving at this cabin (townhome). Our family was all together to prepare a great Turkey dinner. The townhome was nicely equipped and we had everything we needed. I don't think you can stay here and not mention the beautiful sunsets, we have never seen anything like it. Peaceful and cozy. Thanks for a great place to stay.

My wife and I celebrated our 1st anniversary at Shores Cove and enjoyed every minute of it. We were able to relax amid beautiful views of the lake. The nicely decorated town home has everything you need from TV/DVD player to B-B-Q grill. It was a great getaway which we hope to do again in the future.

This was a most enjoyable stay! The interior of the home was immaculate and decorated to perfection. They didn't miss a single area in comfort or convience. The home came well stocked with games and movies and even sleds for the snow. Everything from candles to laundry detergent! I've already booked another stay for next month. Oops...I forgot to mention the beautiful lake! Two steps off the patio and you're on the lake. I don't think I've ever seen such a sunset before. It sets perfectly across from you and lasts what seems a eternity. I know I will be back for many more. Thank you for renting your home to me.

Our vacation was much better than expected. We thought we were going to a secluded cabin so we were surprized to find it was a town home only to find it was much better than a secluded cabin. Being right on the lake was absolutely beatiful and it was very private for a town home, we never even saw a neighbor. Only wildlife. The cabin was so cozy and charming yet classy and well decorated. We had a blast taking a boat out on the lake, fishing and admiring beautiful cabins along the lake. What a peaceful place. We definately will be back.

Beautiful, impeccably appointed townhome on Rainbow Lake. Everything was there! The decor, with fishing, bear and skying motifs, was lovely. We kept our canoe on the lake right behind the back porch. It is amazing to sit on the back porch with our coffee and see a bald eagle fly low right in front of us. We had lots of action from ospreys. The local geese and ducks paraded by daily. We enjoyed the barbecue on the back porch.
We definitely will be back!

We spent five very relaxing days At the Water's Edge, with my parents and daughter- it is lovely, with great views of the lake, a wonderful master bedroom with sitting area and porch overlooking the lake, and complete with everything you need to cook a meal, watch a movie, or just relax. I have come to the White Mountains many times for vacations, and this is by far the nicest place I have stayed. My emails to set up the rental were answered promptly, and my deposit was also returned promptly. A very positive experience!

Just got back from a WONDERFUL three days at the water's edge! Nothing is better than sitting with a cup of coffee early in the morning,looking at the lake, hearing the ducks, and see folks catching trout! This home is beautiful- the decor is out of this world and the owners are concerned about your visit being perfect! I will be back!

Not only is this place gorgeous, the owners are extrememly coordial and accomodating. We don't have a negative comment whatsoever-- the place is clean, well furnished down to each detail to make you feel at home and comfortable, and the scenery is amazing...w/ a lake and serene neighborhood right outside the window. If you are considering any other renter's property, just know that you will NOT be unhappy with this one! And yes, it really does look like the pictures!

You'll love this place! This "little lodge" is charming and cozy while having every convenience imaginable. Sitting right on the lake, the view is fabulous from every room. We awoke one morning to see a bald eagle soar by, just feet from our window.
It is easy to get to, but hard to leave. Book it today, you'll be glad you did.

What a wonderful weekend with friends. Feeling right at home from the moment we walked in, we enjoyed a weekend in a beautiful setting. The changing colors on the trees, the wildlife, the weather where only surpased by the condo itself. Qauility and conviences of home surronded us and gave us that warm cozy feeling. Everything you could possibly want is there. Thick, plush towels, wonderful bedding, all the kitchen utensils you should ever need and all decorated wonderfully. How wonderful to have these people open thier home for us. Thanks a million and we will be back soon.
