Some may think of the desert when Arizona is the topic. However, Arizona is home to rivers and lakes, and when traveling north, explorers will discover shady cool forests. The state has an absolutely enormous, record-breaking ponderosa pine forest, a perfect place for some incredible hiking in Arizona. So while you could find a pretty awesome rental among iconic cacti or other barren landscape, you’d be truly treating yourself when booking a beautiful cabin near one of Arizona’s lovely lakes.
