Quiet Creekside Retreat in Sedona's Backyard

Bedrooms 2
Space 1,945 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 5 nights


About the property

2 BR, 2 BA, sleeps 4-6

Creek Cottage is a unique property located directly on Oak Creek. Relax on one of two private decks overlooking the creek and enjoy spectacular views of the Oak Creek canopy and green, undeveloped ranch land. In this fisher's and naturalist's paradise, you will enjoy the sights and sounds of plentiful wildlife (deer, foxes, quail, hummingbirds, ducks, bass, javelina at night). You can hike Sedona's red rock trails by day and escape the tourist crowds by night.

This quiet private property is in a small, remote, gated community between Sedona and Cottonwood, Arizona. A nicely-furnished single-family home surrounded by decks and beautiful well-established gardens, the house sits on a bluff, slightly above Oak Creek. A quaint rock wall trail leads you down to a year-round swimming and fishing hole. There are small pools and rapids 100 yards upstream to explore.

Local attractions: Several short hiking trails exist in the community, including one on Oak Creek and one on Spring Creek (a small perennial fresh-water creek). There's a lovely park, great for children, in the community as well as a swimming pool and hot tub (both summer only season (from mid-May to mid-October, actual dates vary). There is also a sauna that is open all year. Please email or call for more details on this property.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"This house is in perfect condition, Clean, well furnished and in a GREAT area. Minutes from Sedona (and Cottonwood for grocery shopping). Sheri, the renter,was a joy to work with. You will find comfortable sleeping quarters and clean clean clean baths,a great fireplace and everything you have in your own home to cook. This home is a short drive to everything, however, still secluded. This is a gated secure community, with views that astound. We will be won't be disappointed

And of course, you’re right on Oak Creek for swimming, exploring, fishing, etc. Verde Santa Fe Golf Course is a 10-minute drive and has reasonable golf rates.

Beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

Very nice house exactly as described. Quiet and safe gated community right on the Oak Creek. You can even hear the sound of the waterfall from the porch.

We enjoyed very much a full week there.

Perfect Place to Appreciate Nature

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for sixteen days. The spacious, spotless and fully equipped house is situated in a very quiet community which is about ten minutes drive from the town of Cottonwood which can address all of your shopping needs. Check out Fry's grocery store -- it's amazing!

One of the best parts of staying here was sitting out on the spacious deck in the early morning and watching the birds flitting about the newly budding trees that filled the hillside below us as well as watching the ducks and geese land in the creek at the bottom of the hill. We loved exploring Oak Creek with its waterfalls, huge carp, resident loon and evidence of beaver. We also enjoyed exploring Spring Creek which is also on the property as well as an indigenous pueblo. It was wonderful to come home to this property after a day of hiking in the red rocks of Sedona.

During the evening, we sometimes walked over to the clubhouse for a game of ping pong or billiards if we weren't too tired from the hiking.

Great Value and Location!

  • 4 of 5

this is a great value for the location and amenities. this cottage is right on the Oak Creek River. You can see and hear the river from the back deck. Very peaceful. Lots of wildlife around. And although the home needs some updating, it is very clean and maintained. All the appliances worked and it was great being able to wash my clothes. The owner was very accommodating. She answered my emails promptly and returned my deposit quickly. It's located in a quiet and secure gated community in Cornville, which is about a 15 min drive from Sedona; 5 mins. from Cottonwood and 15 mins. from Jerome. Conveniently located not far from the main highway 17, I implore you to take a drive on 89A. So much to do in this area. I would definitely stay there again.

Quiet Comfortable Vacation Rental

  • 4 of 5

We loved the peace and quiet of this holiday home. It had everything we needed plus more and the booking process was easy and efficient. We fed the Hummingbirds and relaxed in a 'home away from home' way that made our vacation very relaxed and enjoyable. The owners were very helpful with local knowledge and house instructions. The house is light, sunny and warm. We would definitely stay here again. Helen from New Zealand
