Top 10 Airbnb Vacation Rentals Near Mt Lemmon, Arizona - Updated 2023

| 5 min read

Rising some 2,792m (9,159ft), Mt Lemmon is Santa Catalina Mountains’ highest point, located in Coronado National Forest in Arizona. Mount Lemmon Ski Valley, possibly the most famous site here, is a hotspot of outdoor adventures. The place is about an hour’s drive from the city of Tucson, a route rife with scenic views via Mount Lemmon Highway (also known as Catalina Highway and Hitchcock Highway). While hiking, birdwatching, rock climbing, and stargazing are top summertime activities, skiing, sledding, and snowshoeing are brilliant prospects during winter. This is truly a destination for all seasons. Book yourselves one of the top Airbnb vacation rentals near Mt Lemmon, Arizona, listed below, and explore this gorgeous place. Scroll down and find out more.

Ideal year-round destination

The best time to enjoy skiing and snowboarding at Mt Lemmon is from late December to March, and sometimes even April, while the rest of the year is great for hiking, birdwatching, camping, fishing, and a ton of other outdoor activities. There’s no entry fee to Mt Lemmon itself, but prices vary for activities that you may want to book. You can invest in a Coronado Recreational Pass or a National Pass/America the Beautiful Pass, available at Palisades Ranger Station, to access several areas and activities with ease. Camping or staying here for a prolonged period is definitely an option, but day tips from Tucson are also convenient.
