Frequently Asked Questions

The Lazy Trout convenience, grocery store Greer Arizona

Where are your cabins located?

Our cabins are located all throughout the wooded rolling hills and valley of Greer.  Each is privately owned and completely unique, with a wide range of amenities and features—including gorgeous wood burning fireplaces,  spacious decks with BBQ grills, Jacuzzi tubs, outdoor hot tubs, game rooms, media rooms, satellite TV, WiFi.

Some cabins are located in the village of Greer and some are on spacious wooded lots surrounded by Aspens and Ponderosa Pines.  When you rent a cabin in Greer through Molly Butler Lodge & Cabins, you are sure to enjoy a “genuine Greer” experience!  There’s nothing “cookie cutter” or corporate about this adventure.

Are there grocery stores nearby?

Yes, there are plenty of grocery stores in the area. There is a Safeway and Bashas grocery store in Eagar, a scenic 15 to 20 minute drive from Greer Village.  But if you’re on your way up to Greer from the Phoenix area, you should consider stopping at Eddie’s Country Store or Safeway in Pinetop to pick up any snacks or drinks you’d like to have on hand at your cabin.  You might also choose to stop in Show Low as it is the last outpost with a Wal-Mart or K-Mart.  Keep in mind; however, there is a small local grocery shop in Greer called The Lazy Trout!  While staying in Greer, you’ll find that this is a convenient and friendly place to grab an energy drink or purchase basic groceries, drinks, beer, liquor, wine, toiletries, fishing gear, souvenirs, and more!

Where is the closest airport?

The Springerville Municipal Airport is a scenic 15 to 20 minute drive from Greer and is owned and operated by the Town of Springerville.  It is a General Aviation facility complete with 24 hour fuel, tie downs and hangar rentals and courtesy car (check availability). From the Airport head south on Main Street and take a right onto Central Avenue / AZ-260 W for 10 miles.  Take a left onto AZ-373/County Road 1120 and head 5 miles into Greer, where the road becomes Main Street before it ends in the picturesque Greer Valley.  The closest full service commercial airport is Sky Harbor International Airport in Phoenix.

Kids Skiing Snowboarding Sunrise Ski Park Greer Arizona

Sunrise Ski Park in Greer Arizona– Minutes from Molly’s!

Are you close to White Mountain attractions?

You bet!  All of our cabins are located throughout the valley and rolling hills of Greer, which is a lovely ‘trapped in time’ slice of alpine paradise in the heart of Arizona’s White Mountains.  Explore the ‘Plan Your Visit’ link from our Homepage to see just how many attractions and recreational opportunities there are within Greer—or a quick drive.

Notably, Greer is only 12 miles from Sunrise Ski Park where guests can enjoy skiing, snowboarding, sledding and sleigh rides in the winter, and hiking and mountain biking in the pines and aspens in the spring, summer and fall!  One of the most attractive aspects of Greer is that it is not a town on one of the state byways.  Instead, it’s just tucked away enough to give you the privacy and relaxation you deserve during your vacation while still giving you accessibility to everything the White Mountains have to offer.

What do you provide?

We provide towels, bed linens and starter amounts of toilet paper, paper towels, dish soap, detergent for the dishwasher, garbage bags and hand soap for the kitchen and bathrooms.  We ask that you bring your own shampoo, soaps, hair dryers, and any special cook ware such as a crock pot needed.

What do we need to bring?

All of our cabins have fully equipped kitchens and most have washer and dryers available for use. We provide starter amounts of paper towels, toilet paper and trash bags, so here are some items you might need; food, beverages (coffee filters), spices, paper products, trash bags, foil, plastic wrap and laundry detergent. If you have an infant, you may need a portable crib and linens for the crib. While we provide linens, including towels, we do suggest that you bring beach towels if your cabin has an outdoor Jacuzzi or if you plan to go swimming. We recommend to all of our guests that you pack a first aid kit and a flashlight in the unlikely event that you would need them.

What about fishing?

A valid Arizona fishing license is required for Arizona resident and non-resident anglers 14 years of age or older fishing any public accessible water in Arizona. Youth under the age of 14 and blind residents do not need to purchase a state fishing license to fish in Arizona. Check the Arizona Fishing Regulations for additional information.  A variety of hunting and fishing licenses are available online, including some stamps and temporary nonresident licenses.

Fall Foliage Golden Aspens White Mountains Greer Arizona

Gorgeous Fall Color in Arizona’s White Mountains

When can we see Fall colors… and when does it snow?

The breathtaking fall color in the White Mountains always depends upon the amount of rainfall and the temperature leading up to October. The fall colors usually peak anywhere from early to mid-October. The golden aspens normally last until the beginning of November. If you want to see snow, your best bet is to visit anywhere between mid-December and the end of February. Although few people think of Arizona as having any snow, at 8,500 feet elevation our Winter snowfall is quite dependable.  We tend to get most of our snowfall in December and January—and it’s simply magical. Of course the higher elevations will see more accumulation, specifically nearby at Sunrise Ski Park. When it does snow substantially, it tends to stick around—giving Greer its reputation as a Winter Wonderland, perfect for sledding, skiing, snowboarding, sleigh rides, building snowmen and having snowball fights!

Will we see bears at our cabin?

It is certainly possible, but not likely.  Even so, we recommend being mindful of not leaving food or trash outside at night.

Rendezvous Diner Breakfast Greer Arizona

Rendezvous Diner Greer Arizona, Since 1909

Since Molly’s doesn’t serve breakfast, can you suggest a good place?

We would be glad to make some suggestions. Please remember that we are not affiliated with any of the restaurants or attractions that we are about to mention, but the Rendezvous Diner and Greer Cafe (both on Main Street) in Greer village and Greer Mountain Resort (located on 373 about 2 miles from the village) are popular spots to grab breakfast!
