Modernized Cabins Amid Natural Splendor
From the comforts of a recliner in Cozy Cabin 88, one can watch the fire’s shadow dance across the wood wall paneling to the music of rippling water, flowing a few steps away in the Little Colorado River. Nestled between the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest and the White Mountains, Greer Lodge Resort & Cabins offers a convenient base for both outdoor pursuits and leisurely retreats.
Alfresco activities on the property’s 25 forested acres include fishing on any of five private trout-fishing ponds, kayaking, mountain biking, and snowshoeing. After days spent soaking up fresh mountain air or humbling elk in games of mahjong, travelers may retire to one of two dozen available Cozy Cabins, each individually outfitted. Most cabins sport two king- or queen-size beds and a queen sleeper sofa. Wood-framed beds pair up with La-Z-Boy brand furniture to enhance slumbertime, and gas fireplaces, fully equipped kitchens, and a covered deck with a gas grill complete the woodsy experience.
Chefs at the 373 Grill & Sports Bar whip up hearty meals in an authentic log-cabin setting, complete with elk-antler chandelier, natural tree-trunk pillars, and an open-air deck with views of the verdant Greet Meadow. The 373 "Flat Iron" steak arrives topped with herb butter and a drizzle of white-truffle oil, and pairs excellently with one of the Greer Resort’s private-label wines.
Greer, Arizona: Picturesque Mountains and Outdoor Adventure
Greer boasts one of the largest elk populations in the country. These seasonal residents can be seen clacking antlers like sparring knights alongside the Little Colorado River. Their chestnut-colored coats stand out among the snow-white aspen trees dotting the mountainsides. Among the peaks surrounding Greer, a trio of two-mile-high summits comprises the Sunrise Park Resort. Located 15 minutes from the Greer Lodge Resort, this family-friendly ski hill boasts more than 60 trails, most of which are beginner and intermediate runs.
