We came with our son, his friend, and our dog. The rooms were very small, the heater noisy, the walls too thin, the shower was like a camp shower, the 1 positive were the scones, they were delicious. I would never stay here again.

We got "that" deal through Amazon local, and our stay was all right! Cozy room - yes, definitely old style, but came with frig, 2-burner cooktop (which we did not need/use), kitchen sink with dishes, utensils, soap etc, mini-coffee maker, coffee, sugars, creamers. Unfortunately, no microwave, at least in our unit, and no tea. Room was dark, and there was...

all. Here are the breakdowns of why it wasn't somewhere I would every consider coming back to. 1. The manager Holly is very rude and impatient around children 2. No where for children to run around and play at. 3. Next to the highway and there is a rock hill behind the bunk house that is extremely dangerous for children...

My girlfriend and I stayed here on a Groupon deal for 2 nights. This place is so cute! From the "cabin" itself to the breakfast that is delivered to you in a basket. We loved every minute of our stay. Thank you to everyone at Strawberry Creek Bunkhouse for the amazing hospitality!

We purchased a special certificate for this weekend stay at the "Bunkhouse". Easy check-in and check-out. Colorfully painted exterior with free parking just outside your door we walked into our own little suite with cathedral ceiling. The entire unit is Pine...I think, anyway all wood. October is a great time to go. Heat gone and crisp and cool. Daytime delightful....

Spent a lovely 2 days with my best friend at this charming little place. Our accommodations consisted of 2 separate rooms each with a queen bed and a small kitchen area. We also had a lovely little balcony that overlooked the forest. The bathroom was really tiny but we made it work. The beds were very comfortable, but there was...

We spent two nights at the bunkhouse and it was a no frills rest area. The cabins/rooms are small but well equipped with a kitchenette that had a large bar fridge, a pot , a pan, and dishes for the room size rented. The outdoor space is really well worth the cost of the room in my opinion. The views...

got a great deal through living social, stayed the weekend to beat the hot Arizona summer. Had a wonderful time, breakfast was delicious and the innkeepers were extremely friendly. Word of advice: if you do not do well with high elevations, bring tylenol. Woke up in the middle of the night with a killer migraine, fortunately, the innkeepers have a...
