SEDONA CABIN ,CATHEDRAL ROCK VIEW; WALK TO OAK CREEK, TOXIN-FREE, PET FRIENDLY

Sedona Cabin Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms/1 bath sleeps 6. Retreat in privacy and comfort on 1/3 acre with VIEW

This cabin can sleep six: one bedroom with NEW firm mattress with European top queen bed, a carpeted loft with queen bed and stair access, and a futon (double bed, thick mattress) in great room. It comes with complete kitchen and bath, all linens and towels included, clothes washer and dryer, fireplace, firewood (I supply), as well as barbecue grill and patio set in backyard.

There are games, c.d. player, books, and great hikes. We also have TV and DVD; hi-speed wireless internet, and free phone service all 50 states. I also supply the Red Rock pass for free parking on trailheads! Check out the books detailing the hiking and biking trails and spend those gorgeous Sedona days in outdoor activities which you will never forget.

The back of property drops down to a dry creek wash where javelinas, quail and coyote often visit. With rains it becomes a creek which you will thrill to sit on our bank beside. It is a very short walk or drive to Crescent Moon Ranch Park with access to Oak Creek, an area open to hiking and creek access. It is incredibly scenic (full view of Cathedral Rock) and wooded as well Since the cabin is in a small neighborhood surrounded by National Forest, you can hike or mountain bike from our door.

Guest Comments: Marcia, we came home to find your nice note letting me know that we were back online with e-mail and telephone. Thank you so much for taking care of this problem for us. As you know, it was critical that I be able to communicate to my daughter.

We have enjoyed your cabin so very much along with the beautiful area of Sedona. You also have

lovely neighbors. David and I look forward to seeing you on Whidbey Island or here in Sedona. Corinne 4/2009

Guest comments Summer 08: Barbara and Victor

We're from California (Marina County) so all my 'new age' friends will love that Cathedral Rock was majestically sitting at our front door! ...all that 'vortex' myth and magic.

Most magic for us were our 2 times daily hikes into the Oak Creek area. I have always wanted to walk forever in a creek bed and to then plunge into swimming holes! How glorious to find this dream right here! so much stream…so many swimming holes magically showing up along the walks...so little time! Though we did have a wonderful week, and so many quiet areas of delicious sanctuary where we just sat for hours falling into each moment. Thanks for this great spot!

Our last day -- Gentle wind chimes birdsong scent of Juniper, warm breeze fluttering, yellow and white butterflies

Our little family of quails scooting by (above the table is a rocky mountain juniper - can live up to 1500 years). Don't forget to sit out late with the stars...

...and the full moon! Sandy

About Marcia Caldwell

Moving from Puget Sound to the Valley of the Sun (Phoenix/Scottsdale, AZ) in 1989, left my family longing for a cool, wooded getaway. I bought and renovated this cabin (built in 1960), in 1997 and have had hundreds of truly happy guests stay here, leaving us the occasional available weekend! I love sitting by a cool evening fireside with my dachshunds -- you will too!

Marcia Caldwell purchased this cabin in 1998

Why Marcia Caldwell chose Sedona

We adored Sedona and the hikes, the creek, the activities and the year round great climate. We hike right from our background either into a box canyon leading to hills with magnificent views or to Crescent Moon Recreation Area where we can swim in Oak Creek, visit Stupas, photograph some of the best views and ecosystems Sedona offers. We also benefit from the VORTEX energy!

What makes this cabin unique

Direct vortex path from stunning Cathedral Rock and short walking distance to Oak Creek certainly affects energy and consciousness. I love sharing this amongst the other benefits of a genuine cabin on wooded acreage and a view that leaves me breathless.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The stay was fantastic. Secluded and quiet with plenty of room. Thank you so much. When we had back to Sedona next year, we'll look you up. Thanks again.

Cozy cabin perfect for exploring Red Rock country, great for kids

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this lovely cabin the last week of 2012. It was perfect for our family with 3 kids - 7, 5, 2. The ample outside space allowed the kids to practice their soccer skills every day. The kitchen was well-stocked and the heater worked very well. We loved the breakfast table with the great view of Cathedral Rock. We saw a rather large coyote on our drive back to the cabin one evening. The owner Marcia recommended the Heartline Cafe where we had a delicious four course Christmas dinner. On the last day it snowed and was absolutely gorgeous. Nice selection of reading material and games. Sedona is a lovely town and a great base for exploring the area. We did several nearby hikes and went to the mining town of Jerome for a day. We also visited Walnut Canyon, Tuzigoot and Montezuma castle national monuments all of which have ancient Indian dwellings. The older kids were proud of the Junior Ranger park badges they earned. We never turned on the TV or used the iPad the whole week! We stayed in a few hotels following our stay in Sedona and we really missed the extra space and privacy the cabin provided.

Lovely cabin in a great location and great value!

  • 3 of 5
We had a lovely stay in this cozy cabin with breathtaking views. Clean and with all the basic amenities (+ A/C, cable TV and washer/dryer). Our plans took us to Flagstaff and the Grand Canyon, but we didn't mind the drive back and forth, as it was beautiful, and we would have had to pay twice as much for accommodations in the Flag area. Very convenient to shopping and dining, but immediate surroundings very private and with beautiful views. Highly recommended!

Great location, fantastic view

  • 5 of 5
It was perfect for a family of four. The place was well kept. There were lots of spices and condiments which is a nice thing for a short stay. The books and information on the local hiking were good, we hiked every day. Also appreciated the Red Rocks pass and grocery card. We sat outside and played cards every night and enjoyed the view. My kids thought they saw a bobcat near the creek bed.

Oh, the view!

  • 4 of 5
We spent 5 restful days in this cozy cabin with the fantastic view. We loved being able to access lots of hikes without driving anywhere and still be close to any amenities and more hikes with a short drive.
Marcia's welcome and organization made our stay pleasant and easy. Thanks, Marcia.

Positives and Negatives

  • 2 of 5
I’ll start with the positive first.

Nice location, a quiet neighbourhood, the beds are fairly comfortable. The kitchen is quite functional.

The negatives that could easily be improved on. These are things that SHOULD be improved on and taken care of by the owner.

The noise factor was shocking.

The beams in the place bang and crack on going, was very disturbing and made it difficult to sleep.

When the heat is turned on one can not hear themselves think!

The space heaters are old and noisy they should be changed out!

The light fixtures are old and do not function in the way they should.

The way the furniture has been arranged is brutal. The furniture should be improved on. The wicker is uncomfortable, quite frankly should be thrown out and replaced.

The TV is way to small and should be replaced with a bigger one. One can not see the TV across the room.

The drapes need to be replaced, they are very shabby. This is not quaint.



The sink and bathtub where plugged, I finally found the plunger and was able to unplug the sink.

The Forks and Knifes bend when a little pressure was applied. Another med. sized cooking pot would be good. There is only one med. and a huge pot.

The kitchen chair leg on one of the chairs moves out of place easily, rather dangerous to some one who is old.

I feel with these changes it would be fine and worth staying at. Marcia has said she will be making most of these changes and is in the process of doing so.

Owner's Response: I feel genuinely regretful when a guest is displeased with my rural Sedona cabin. I advertise it as a genuine cabin, rather rustic as I believe a cabin should be, and offering the retreat qualities that only a cabin on 1/3 acre would be able to offer. Many people seek out the more modest accommodations of a cabin, knowing that unless it is advertised with a hot tub and luxury accommodations (I stayed in one like that in ski country, CO), they will have the truest of casual getaway experiences. When I purchased this cabin, I was happy to create a getaway focused on the outdoor setting, scenery and location close to natural beauty, away from highways, etc. I have kept the furnishings comfortable and easy to care for, so guests won't have to feel too precious about them. The art is all original and the books are exceptional, adding to uniqueness of my cabin.
I always appreciate feedback and suggestions from my guests, but usually it is in the form of gladness that they found a cozy, peaceful setting to return to after hiking, photography, day trips and biking. That is why I remodeled the bathroom and purchased a new high quality bed last year.
I am having a ductless LG mini-split air conditioner/heater installed in early May (eliminating the wall heater) which probably will keep the cabin comfortable enough that the room heaters (one is new, the other is less than 2 years old) won't be needed. I have purchased new light fixtures and have replaced the windsor style chairs and the tableware now that I have heard that they are too flimsy. Last year I spent $10k having the bathtub remodel, new washer, new master bed mattress, box spring and frame, and replaced clothes dryer and sI have repainted the fireplace (sooty from someone building too large a fire), and improved the path to the wash.
You were here during a very windy period and that made the noisiness from the rafters especially bad. The noise appeared after roof work , so I may have to do a full roof replacement to correct the noise. It is usually not unbearable, but I am sure sorry that it was so bad for your stay.
Although it is always a challenge keeping an older rural cabin up, I rely on comments from users and take them seriously. I never received a call about these issues, but I am committed to guests' comfort and always respond when contacted. It is unfortunate that this guest did not enjoy their cabin stay. It is intended to provide a comfy alternative to resorts and suburban homes.

A wonderful place to stay!

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I, along with our small dog, spent a wonderful month in this rustic cabin. Because it was January, the cabin was a bit cool in the mornings but the furnace worked well and there were extra heaters in every room. The kitchen was fairly well equipped and the tv and internet worked great! I loved that the yard was quite large with outdoor seating under a tree. We loved being able to use the barbecue and the laundry facilities. The master bed was very comfortable and the bathroom had just been remodelled. Great views of Cathedral Rock from the living room! We hope to stay there again one day!
