About the property

Nightly rates drop the longer you stay. See owners response to your inquiry for additional discounts beyond 10 nights.

Imagine yourself pulling into a gated community, Peace and security as you enter. Pull into the garage on the 18th hole of the Verde Santé Fe Golf course. Enjoy the quiet neighborhood with dark star filled skies, a small home town feel and the opportunity of being so close to one of the most beautiful places in America, Sedona! Red Rock County. Ahhh..Away at last!

Travel north only 12 miles to Sedona, Enjoy the great red rocks views, hiking, scenic drives, tours, horseback rides, hot air balloons, spas, galleries, shopping and dining.....Spend a great day with your family at Slide Rock Park or visit the natural land vortex’s such as Cathedral Rock and Bell Rock for healing energy and mental clarity. My favorite hike is Devils Bridge, a moderate 35 minute hike to the top of this natural land arch, walk out on the arch or enjoy it from a distance…either way you will leave here with some great pictures, a sense of accomplishment, and inspiration.

Or travel 12 miles south to Jerome, an old copper mining town, artist community with an interesting reputation of being a ghost town...if you want unique local art instead of mass-produced 'Indian Art & Jewelry,' which, unfortunately, has begun to be plentiful in the shops of Sedona. Great location for photography, shopping, wine tasting, galleries and dining.

This new home is open and light with great energy and blazing fast internet. Enjoy the sounds of the tranquil water fountain or relax in the round chair with a cup of morning coffee or cuddled up with a special someone. Enjoy the temperature being 10 degrees cooler here than in Scottsdale. You open the door and you know that you are 'home'. Leather sofas, down comforters, tribal rugs on the floor. In the winter the gas fireplace is capable of making the family room nice and toasty. Enjoy some family time with a movie. In the summer enjoy coming back from a long day of hiking to a super cool air conditioned home or enjoy soaking in the guest bathroom tub.

The sliding glass door leads to an open space patio surrounded by plants, flowers and a variety of bird life. To one side is the green grass of the golf course, the other side is open space with beautiful views of the Mingus Mountain. Spend an evening talking with friends or make new friends as you visit with the golfers on the 18th hole.. I often love to sit out there the evening enjoying the fire pit with a glass of wine and my own thoughts..

The tiled kitchen is open to the family room with bar counter and stools for entertaining your guests...everything about this place, from the Sedona Landscape images to the Quiver with the bow and arrows makes you feel like you are in Sedona.

The master bedroom is spacious and inviting…romantic

mood lighting with a medium-firm mattress, nice and cool high thread count sheets and Flat screen smart TV. A full bathroom with a stall shower. Just drop your bags and head off for the red rocks.

The guest bedroom has s a medium firm queen mattress, high thread cool sheets and down pillows. Complete with a 19' TV and walk in closet. Decorated in a series of photographic images by the owner of the natural land arches in Sedona.

Next to the water fountain is the third bedroom, The Indiana Jones Room, no TV in here, perfect for a single guest who loves to read or just loves some peace and quiet from the rest of the family. This room offers a very comfortable firm twin futon mattress, a full closet and wood writing desk inviting you to document your vacation experiences in your journal...or perhaps complete that writing project you started last year!

This is high desert living at its finest and it won't break the bank. Come stay in my home, I would love to have you.

Simply the Best

  • 5 of 5

Property is well maintained and located close to Sedona and Cottonwood. Linda goes out of her way to ensure guests have all the information they need to make their stay enjoyable and memorable. The house is comfortable and well-equipped. You really can't ask for more. We'll definitely stay again the next time we visit Sedona

This place is the best!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd year coming to this property, this time staying for 11 days. Linda is so accommodating, wishing to make your stay as good as you hope it will be. The house is as described. The beds are very comfy, the rest of the furniture is above normal rental property. Love sitting outside on the patio, nice seating and table provided, only wishing there was a lounger to lay down and take a nap in the sun. It is a minor 15 minutes drive it Sedona. Cottonwood is 10 minutes away where you can pick up groceries, gas, and supplies. The Tavern Grille downtown Old Cottonwood is a favorite, would also recommend the Black Bear Diner for breakfast. Cornville has the Grasshopper Grille where we also like to eat. So many hiking trails of all difficulty are just minutes away. Just a drive thru Sedona and the red rocks makes for an enjoyable afternoon. This year we spent an Saturday evening at Old Town Center in Cottonwood listening to a professional artist. Would recommend their entertainment if you have a chance. My husband golfed in the afternoon at the adjourning course plus watching and interacting with the golfers on the 18th hole is fun. We did make it up to the Grand Canyon for a day trip, 2 1/2 hr one way. I would suggest using the east entrance, that way you flow with the sunshine from place to place and you have a variety of stops. Exit out the south entrance. The weather in Cornville was above normal, 70 degrees and just perfect.

Our month in the desert was wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit to the Cottonwood area and Linda's house was the best home that we've found. The house was just as advertised and the location was convenient to the area attractions and old town Cottonwood shops and restaurants. Plus a short drive to the Sedona area, if that's your preference. We arrived to a clean house, comfortable beds and all the amenities that we needed. We spent the month of January and enjoyed every day. We would certainly recommend the house and hope to return.

My vacation to Arizona and the Grand Canyon was amazing and the home I stayed at made it even better!!! Everything was nice, clean, and in proper working order. Linda was wonderful to work with and even offered tips and suggestions of different sights to see I would have missed by searching on my own. Thank you so much for helping to make my vacation amazing. I cannot wait to visit again!

Peace and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

This was ideal for our group of two couples. Linda seems to have a knack for hosting, and she must have been doing this for a while. She is so thoughtful. Things we didn't realize we needed were there, like the Brita pitcher in the fridge and the fountain that acts as a natural humidifier. Although it is gated, the provided gate clicker and the garage door remote make it very convenient. It is a very quiet neighborhood, and we were surprised how dark it gets at night. Sedona not only tries to be green, but also tries to reduce light pollution at night to bring out the natural beauty of the stars.

If you would like to stay close to home there are many wonderful experiences to be had in this area of the Verde Valley. There are several local wineries on Page Springs Road (about 5-10 minutes away), and don't forget the Fish Hatchery on that road, as well. In nearby Camp Verde are Montezuma's Well, Montezuma's Castle, and a little farther out, Tuzigoot, Honanki and Palatki, ruins. Also near the house is the Out of Africa Wildlife adventure area. For some night life, Cliff Castle Resort & Casino in Camp Verde (about 10 min. away) has some great restaurants, a bowling alley, and, of course, lots of 'one armed bandits,' if you want to try your luck!

Nearby Old Town Cottonwood is also a great place for an afternoon stroll. Plays and performances are offered in the Theatre there, and the La Bella Restaurant offers wonderful natural fare. The Clarkdale Train offers a sweet ride through the local mountains, with the guide pointing out both historical and natural points of interest...a real treat for train kids!

I can help you tailor your experiences to your interests and budgets...just ask! If I don't know the answer to your question, I will be happy to try and get one for you.

This is high desert living at its finest and it won't break the bank. Come stay in my home, I would love to have you.
