It’s getting pretty serious around the nation with regards to COVID-19, but there may never be a better time to visit the high country of Greer. Escape all the stresses of the city and enjoy the peaceful calm of nature in our delightful high-altitude mountain haven. Here are 8 reasons why you should social distance in Greer right now:

1. Plenty of Toilet Paper and Paper Towels

Enough said!

2. Well Spaced-out Cabins

Our stand-alone cabins give plenty of space for social distancing around our beautiful water front property. Unlike traditional hotels, you’ll have ample area to roam about with your family, enjoy a grilled meal out on the porch, and indulge in getting away from everyone else! Additionally, our no contact check-in/check-out process (standard check-in/check-out time applies) ensures you can simply drive right up to your reserved cabin and head inside. No need for arduous face-to-face check-ins after your drive.

3. Cook in or take out

Our cabins come equipped with full kitchens and all the basic supplies. We do recommend you bring your groceries before heading into Greer. Although the nearest stores are roughly twenty minutes away in Pinetop-Lakeside or Eager-Springerville, it is recommended by the WHO and Government officials to minimize contact with others. However, if you’re missing the friendly confines of a restaurant, Greer houses several quaint eateries that remain open with take-out options.

4. Minimal Population

Greer’s permanent residents barely surpass 100. Unlike big cities and towns, you won’t find much traffic here, nor would you see many others outside as you would in crowded city parks or urban hiking trails. No, in Greer you’ll have most of the nature spaces to yourself…. except for the bountiful wildlife that calls Greer home of course!

5. No Crisis, Just Pure Relaxation

Turn off the news and detox. Coronavirus hasn’t infected small town USA quite like it has in the cities. Escape to Greer and enjoy a gentle respite from all the stress gripping our nation’s urban centers.

6. Cool Mountain Temps

All that worry getting you overheated? Come enjoy some cool spring temperature in the Arizona Mountains. While it does feel warm in the daytime sun, overnight temperatures approach freezing, so be sure to grab a jacket, and get ready to cool off!

7. Beautiful Scenery

Looking for something to help get your mind off of the current events? Get ready for scenery like this! Coronavirus will be the last thing on your mind as you hike in some of the state’s most beautiful wilderness.

8. Limited Connection

Cell service is spotty here at best. Additionally our WiFi isn’t quite Fiber Optic level. However, instead of staying too connected with what’s happening in the country, enjoy focusing on spending time soul-searching, family or simply wildlife watching to get away from it all.
There’s a reason that Greer’s motto is “The Road to Nowhere.” There’s not much here is the way of city life, and for us that’s a thing to be cherished, especially in such uncertain times as these. If you happen to be feeling a bit claustrophobic in your apartment or home, or you just want to enjoy a few days away from it all, consider staying at a cabin at the Greer Lodge Resort. We’re staying open! And we’d love to be your home away from home.

    and Cabin 81 available for arrival Sun May 24, and staying Monday night May25th
    Please call for booking, or email instructions for online booking

  6. Do you have internet for a husband who works from home but I do not want to deal with heat + no swimming pool. Also do rent out for Christmas? And is there a place to rent snowmobiles?

    1. Hi Cynthia! I can totally understand your concern! Greer’s cool summer temperatures make it the perfect getaway from the Valley heat. We provide free Wi-Fi for our guests but we can not guarantee the strength of it here in the mountains. We have some cabins that get better signal than others which is best to discuss with our reservation team at the time of your booking. We’re open 365 days a year and with snow arriving as early as November at times, Christmas is exceptionally one of the best times to visit to see our small town turn into a winter wonderland. ☃️ We are not aware of any business in Greer that rents snowmobiles. The best place to ask this question would be Sunrise Ski Park – only 8 miles from Greer Lodge! We look forward to seeing you in the White Mountains soon!

    1. Hi Patti! Yes, we certainly are taking reservations now and for June and beyond. Please give us a call 928-735-2304 for availability and reservations. We look forward to seeing you in the White Mountains!

    1. Hello Reyna! We are sold out for the month of May. Please give us a call 928-735-2304 for availability and reservations for a later date. We’re booking fast for this Summer and Fall!

    1. Hi Vickilyn! Thank you for your message. We own and operate 20 cabins that are spaced out but grouped together and situated either by the Little Colorado River that runs through our property or our two Private Trout Ponds. We recommend viewing our Lodging Map to see how our property is laid out and identifying the cabins that you’d like based off how many are in your party and then giving us a call at 928-735-2304 to reserve those cabins for your group. We look forward to hosting you and your group at the Greer Lodge!

    1. Hi Cara! Please contact our Reservation team directly at 928-735-2304. The staff at our front desk will be more than happy to provide you with more details on reservation bookings & cancellation.
