Looking for the perfect escape from the Valley this fall and winter, come explore Pine-Strawberry, Arizona with a stay at the ever-popular Strawberry Inn.

The Inn has recently premiered 12 new tiny cottages and Windmill Coffee, on-site open daily from  6:30-10:30 a.m. featuring Press Coffee, snacks, lattes, Italian sodas, tea, and more for guests to enjoy.

The New Tiny Cottages

As stated previously, the Strawberry has introduced 12 new tiny cottage options for guests to enjoy adjacent to the property. It is the perfect cottage for two or for the family.

With an incredibly comfortable queen size bed and two bunk beds in a separate room, the tiny cottages are THEE definition of a “staycation.”

Just a short two-hour drive north from Phoenix, guests get the feel they are in some midwest town surrounded by gorgeous mountain scenery. For us, Phoenicians who never experience the seasons, the fall trees, and stunning hiking trails are perfect for a new environment without the hassle of travel time hours.

Some “busy bees” just want a reason to get out of town and switch up their work from home routines. The Tiny Cottages and Strawberry Inn offer high-speed Wifi internet, coffee (with cute coffee collectible mugs), and a beautiful environment to relax, even during the weekday.

Since 2016, the Inn is a favorite escape for its modern design and hospitality.

Each rental unit exudes style and character, The Strawberry Inn has perfected its modern farmhouse flair from shiplap walls, subway tiles, and luxury pillow-top Tuft & Needle beds and bedding. Bedding can be purchased after an enjoyable stay. 

Guests can also experience all that Pine offers from great dining, the scenic Mongollon Rim, the historic town of Strawberry, fun outdoor activities like cornhole steps away from Bunkhouse, and so much more.

A short five to 10-minute walk from the property, guests must checkout PIEbar! Their breakfast and lunch empanadas are a fantastic snack in between outdoor activities.

Just as a disclaimer, you MUST try the mixed berry, strawberry, and chicken pot pie empanada. They are so delicious and made fresh every day!

Safety Measures

The safety of guests and team members is a top priority. The Inn has extremely high standards, and that continues during COVID-19. Each guestroom has no shared air circulation or hallways.

In addition to rigorous cleaning procedures, the Inn is unhosted, which means contactless check-in. High-touch and high traffic areas are receiving extra attention, and team members are routinely screened for health.

The best part is the “unhosted” aspect behind everything at the Strawberry Inn. All one needs is their confirmation receipt with the access code to the digital touch lock. With an accessible entrance and exit, the Strawberry Inn has the amenities of a hotel but the feel of an Airbnb!

Still a little scared to travel or be in a hotel-like atmosphere? Don’t worry; each tiny cottage and room has cleaning products already to go for those who want their own sanitation approval seal.

Holidays at the Inn

The Strawberry Inn is now taking reservation for guests to check out the fall foliage and cooler temps from now through Jan. 4, 2021.

Looking to get away for the holidays but still be in a safe environment close to home. Book a room, cabin, or cottage for Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, or New Years. 

Meet the Eilers

Amber and Carson Eilers’ journey in real estate began in 2009 and the couple has since flipped more than 200 Valley homes and launched vacation rentals with their largest project being the Inn.

In 2016, they purchase the 50-year-old building, began its three-month renovation, and now have expanded their offerings based on popularity.
