THE CONTENTMENT LODGE RETREAT CENTER--SEDONA GROUP RENTAL

Sedona Lodge Rental Photos and Description

FULLY STOCKED YOGA STUDIO/MEETING ROOM

A wonderful Sedona area Lodge on two acres with thirteen beds in four bedrooms and three bathrooms so that you can comfortably sleep your whole group--maximum of 10-14 preferred. Awesome views of verdant hills out of each bay window and a feeling of open space out in the country, in Cornville, close to the land. The road from Hwy 89A (Sedona's main street) into Cornville has four signs that always make me smile-- 'Welcome to Cornville / A Quiet Place / Please Slow Down / To a Leisurely Pace.'

The Contentment Lodge is elegant with new mattresses and fine cotton bedding to cozy up to. It has several indoor and outdoor furnished lounging and dining areas--and the deluxe Jenn-Air kitchen many dream of having! Enjoy relaxing in the yoga/meeting room, sun shining through French doors onto an oaken floor, stocked with yoga mats, blankets, pillows, dry erase boards for workshops, 22 new backjack seats, and a trampoline and an exercise bike. Relax with hi-definition tv, video and DVD viewing, and stero music, and keep up with your email with wifi throughout the Lodge.

Outside the Lodge, you can relax in a hammock or glider or on one of the rattan couches, star gaze from the lounge chairs, say a prayer to the four directions around a medicine wheel or even sleep in the netted gazebo.

Enjoy neighborhood gourmet restaurants, wine tasting in the vinyards nearby and a vist to Montezuma's Castle and Well. Zip up to Sedona with just two turns (Left from Loy Rd. onto Cornville Rd. and right onto Hwy. 89A into Sedona) and enjoy all that the red rock vortexes have to offer. Lots of tours available, just moments away, vortex hikes and sacred site tours, hot-air ballooning, horse back riding, kyaking/rafting on Verde River and a wide variety of sessions to enhance body, mind and spirit in the spas or metaphysical services.

Just south of the Lodge, you can visit Jerome, a former mining town that's now a funky artists' community. Lots of great art, shopping and unique restaurants like the Haunted Mansion and the Asylum. Also, south of the Lodge is Cottonwood, just a 15 minute ride to a variety of good restaurants, grocery and department stores and spa services.

The best thing about the Contentment Lodge is the good energy you feel when you here in this immaculately clean dwelling perched so beautifully out in nature. We would love to chat with you if you have any questions, and we welcome guests to make appointments to view the lodge. Take advantage of our SPECIAL OFFER of the 7th night free when you pay for six.

Johanna Maheshvari Mosca, PhD

I am 67 years young, a retired NYC high school English teacher, with a PHD from NYU in Writing Research & Theory and 2 NYC high school principal's licenses. I've been leading Sedona Spirit Yoga & Hiking Retreats for 18 years, recently featured #1 in Sunset Magazine's 'Ten Inspirational Retreats.' I am author of two books about living the principles of yoga, e.g. compassion, truthfulness, cleanliness, contentment. The Lodge is decorated with Egyptian art, Hindu gods and goddesses, and landscaped with a medicine wheel and furnished relaxation areas. I rented the premises to retreat leader, Roy Holman, for 11 guests, a reference you may contact, who is renting again October 2012. I keep the Lodge immaculately clean with all new mattresses, luxury bedding and very good energy. I prepare the rooms to accommodate renters and inform you of area restaurants, hiking trails and attractions. I ask the nature of the group and address any special needs renters might have to make your stay rewarding.

Johanna Maheshvari Mosca purchased this lodge in 2009

The Contentment Lodge is truly a place that enhances well-being. The mountain setting with rolling cactus and ranch country creates a very relaxing atmosphere. On two acres, the Lodge offers much more than just a very comfortable vacation dwelling. It has a field with a sacred Native American medicine wheel overlooking a vineyard, a semi-circle arbor of blue spruce trees with cozy benches and a panorama of views, plus two wonderful meditation benches high up on the mountain behind the house. The grounds have a hammock, a glider, a picnic table, a roofed patio with dining furniture and lounge chairs and a fully netted cedar floor gazebo. The setting is totally conducive to comfortable relaxation amid the beauty and serenity of nature.

The Lodge living space offers all of the comforts of home with luxury and style.

BEAUTIFUL SETTING, COMFORTABLE ACCOMMODATIONS THOUGHTFULLY APPOINTED

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at the property for a workshop/retreat. I would recommend this location whether for a vacation to visit the Sedona area (while being not in the middle of town) or for a retreat. The home and the property were well-appointed, very clean and well maintained. The benches, outdoor tables and chairs invited evening meals on the back patio and meditation or watching the sunrise each morning. Our every need seemed to have been anticipated. There was always water available for tea, and the skylight in our bathroom added a spa-like feeling. Johanna also has a great library!

GREAT RETREAT SPACE

  • 5 of 5
I attended a yoga retreat at the Contentment Lodge and it was perfect for our group of 10. The yoga room was new and spacious with nice wood flooring. The bedrooms are large and open windows let in the cool Sedona air at night. There was plenty of space for individual quiet both indoors and outdoors. Great place to watch the sunrise over the ridge and listen to the sounds of rural Sedona. Nicely quiet and away from the bustle of the city - beautiful stars. The owner has provided lots of interesting art and spiritual materials. The kitchen was wonderful and large enough for all. The outdoor furniture pieces are comfy and spread around so you can watch sunrise, or stay in the shade. Wonderful touches everywhere - it was PERFECT!

SACRED SPACE!

  • 5 of 5
The sacred space inside and outside created for this 5-day Yoga Teacher's Intensive was PERFECT!
I was happy to see the lodge had sufficient reference material (Library) for further study and research.
The relaxed and clean atmosphere inside and out as as the well planned-out grounds
provided quiet meditative space to reflect between sessions!
The views were spectacular and, the staff friendly and very helpful in all areas.
The owner, Maheshvari, made sure that each individual enjoyed their stay.

BEYOND MY EXPECTATION

  • 5 of 5
I enjoyed the lodge as it was very clean. If you want an atmosphere of calmness and serenity, the Contentment Lodge is for you! You can be alone in your own thoughts and meditate one moment, and be at the hub of Sedona in 10-15 minutes to enjoy this quaint town surrounded by the red rocks in the next. I highly recommend this lodge whether alone or a group. There are so many activities nearby or if you would like to enjoy Johanna Mosca's teachings or company, ask for a one-on-one retreat. :-)

A WELCOMING AND SACRED SPACE HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

  • 5 of 5
Having spent a week at The Contentment Lodge recently, I am happy to recommend this sacred space to everyone seeking a corporate retreat experience, a family trip or a private getaway. Nestled on the mountainside, the views are breathtaking from the hillside benches. You can even sleep outdoors in a netted patio while the stars take your breath away. The description was exactly what I expected, the property was clean and had every amenity advertised. When I needed to be 'unplugged' I felt as though I were a million miles away from the world. The yoga room offered a meditation space suitable for deep and real spiritual work. The grounds host spectacular sitting areas, a medicine wheel and a waterfall. And when I needed to be connected, the office offered a quiet place to finish some business planning. The owner was quite helpful sharing information about the local attractions, activities and hiking. I will most definitely return to The Contentment Lodge with my family.

Map

Nestled on a hill amid rolling fields of cactus, chaparral and juniper trees sits our Contentment Lodge on two acres. It is a cozy, exclusive setting in Cornville, AZ, just twenty-five minutes south of Sedona. Cornville, a little-known jewel of a community, is a lush southwestern greenbelt that offers the cool setting of award-winning wine vineyards and verdant ranch pastures, including the publicized ranch of Senator McCain.

Recognized as one of the most beautiful places in America by USA Today Weekend, Sedona is located in Arizona's high desert (4500 ft. above sea level) under the towering southwestern rim of the vast Colorado Plateau, the city of Sedona is blessed with four mild seasons marked by abundant sunshine and clean air. Ideally, the annual average high and low temperatures are 74.7 and 45.7 degrees, respectively.

Our intimate accommodations include four deluxe, large bedrooms with scenic views and a wonderful six-jet Jacuzzi bathtub. Our comfortable beds all have new mattresses, pillows and linens and soft cotton blankets and comforters. The Lodge has three new hi-dimension televisions, plus video and DVD recorders, a video/DVD library, and two stereos. All of the rooms in the Lodge have wi-fi connection.

Indoors, there is also a large oak-floor yoga studio or meeting room with French doors and brass statues and batiks of Hindu deities. The yoga studio can serve as a meeting or exercise room. It has 22 new back-jack seats, a trampoline and an exercise bicycle, an overhead projector, and several dry erase boards for note-taking during workshops.

The very cozy living room, with an electric fireplace, and the spacious dining area are decorated with touches of Egyptian art. The lodge is comfortably heated by propane or cooled by air conditioning. The kitchen is fully stocked with service for more than twelve, toaster oven, microwave, gas stove, a deluxe Jenn-Air dishwasher and appliances, plus a hi-efficiency clothes washer and dryer in the laundry room.

The house has a roofed patio for outdoor breakfast, several seating areas with luxurious lawn furniture, a small and large barbecue grill and a screened-in canopy pagoda for relaxing or sleeping outdoors. We can provide two futons for the gazebo to accommodate anyone who likes to sleep outdoors. On our two-acre grounds, there is a stone Native American medicine wheel, a semi-circle Ganesha arbor of blue spruce trees with curved concrete benches overlooking awesome views, a goddess fountain cascading down the mountain behind the lodge, and a direct view of sacred Sugarloaf Mountain.

Our lodge in Cornville, sits on a mountain hill across from the restricted Sugarloaf Mountain, protected Native American burial grounds. We honor the Native Americans by respecting that it is a legally restricted area and urging our guests to honor this and enjoy being near the mountain without going there. We mention this because the lodge is blessed by being directly across the street from Sugarloaf Mountain. We have meditation benches 3/4 up our mountain, that provide a perfect setting to view the stars (unobstructed by traffic lights) and feel the energy of the adjacent sacred mountain.

We chose to live in Cornville, for this serene mellow energy after having lived for years in the stirring energy of Sedona. You will find that after visiting Sedona's sites, it's wonderful to go home to your two-acre soothing energy site, and the short trip is only a 25-minute drive on three paved roads, a very easy and worthwhile commute.

Cornville is the home of award-winning wineries that offer tasting rooms, awesome Montezuma's Well and Castle and a variety of cozy gourmet restaurants. The Contentment Lodge is 15 minutes from the movies, restaurants and grocery and department stores to the south in Cottonwood. Also nearby to the south is Jerome, a former mining town on a mountain that is now a funky artist community with interesting shops and unique fun restaurants like the Haunted Mansion and the Asylum.

Sedona is in the top ten sites voted the most wonderful to visit. It offers many different red rock vortex sites, known to have mystical healing energy, and Slide Rock Water Park, a place to splash and have fun. The area has magnificent golf courses, horseback-riding, hot-air ballooning, river kyacking, rafting and tubing, and spas offering pampering delights.

So many fun things to do in and around Cornville and Sedona! Enjoy wine-tasting in award-winning local vineyards, fine dining in a variety of gourmet restaurants, historic Montezuma's Well and Castle, fun shopping in the nearby artistic town of Jerome, uplifting hiking/ biking trails amid magnificent red rock vortex vistas, and golfing at the most spectacular golf courses in the world! The Contentment Lodge is perfect for group or spiritual retreat rental as it beautifully accommodates 12+ guests and provides a very uplifting energy that is nurturing to body, mind and soul.
