Overview

Arizona House Rental Photos and Description

Contemporary Rustic With Mountain Views; You Won't Want To Leave The Property.

The Barn is a wonderfully contemporary rustic barn-style home. It is on a cul-de-sac, a very private 2.5 acres, and is a perfect place for golfers, balloonists, birders, bikers, hikers, tourists, and more.

Enjoy a combined rustic and urban experience in pristine air --town population 10,000. Swimming pool, garden area, firepit, circle driveway, convenience (maybe 5 minutes to local markets and shops).

Minutes from five different wineries as well as Sedona, Jerome, Dead Horse Park, Tuzigoot Ruins, Sycamore Canyon, Oak Creek, Verde River, Montezuma’s Castle, Camp Verde, The Clarkdale-Perkinsville train run, and the Cliff Castle Casino. Three hours from the Grand Canyon as well as Sky Harbor Airport.

The Barn is one mile from the charming Old Town district, but you won't have to leave the property in order to relax and watch the wildlife such as javelina, quail, coyote, roadrunners, and hear and see horses and peacocks. Swim in the pool in the warmer seasons. Sit by the firepit outside (gas grill on front patio) with veranda dining or sit by the cozy wood stove inside. All modern amenities with stainless steel appliances and butcher block counter tops.

See fantastic views of Mingus Mountain, the distant Mogollon, (and on a crystal clear day, majestic buttes and mesas are visible for miles.) Inside the double storied Barn, you’ll find a Hi Def TV hooked up to cable, free WiFi, a full kitchen and laundry, air and heat, and a wood burning stove, games, maps, brochures--everything but food!

The two bedrooms plus a loft sleeps eight, and a blow up mattress aisre available for more. The master bedroom can double as family room with portable screen dividers for privacy. The bedrooms have closets and drawer space, and the loft has king bed with storage and wardrobe clothing valet.

On 2.5 view acres. Gigantic private patios both front and back. Back yard is shady and securely fenced, (so is the pool) so that kids and dogs and in-laws are safe and contained.

About Mary Crawford

Local school administrator for 40 years. Have made The Barn a home away from home and love it as a member of our family. You will, too. So much to do and see! Three years ago completed a major upgrade with all new kitchen and baths. You'll fall in love with the design of this 'no cookie cutter' look.

Mary Crawford purchased this house in 1990

Why Mary Crawford chose Arizona

Close to everything you want to do in Arizona with a 'come home' feeling when your day is done. Great for entertaining with awesome family room and gorgeous views. Warm and comfortable bedrooms. Porch sitting and bird-watching a must. Out door fire pit great for parties.

What makes this house unique

Close to Sedona without the crowds or commercialization. 10 minutes from the nation's oldest living ghost town, Jerome. Tevasci marsh a must for birders! Wineries the best. Old Town a must see. Great dining. Forty five minutes away from all things snow in historic Flagstaff. Get your kicks on Route 66 and stand on a corner in Winslow, Arizona.

Please note that the cancellation policy in the renter’s agreement and house rules supersedes VRBO’s forced-choice policy or any policies of HomeAway or its affiliates as they might appear on VRBO's automated notices.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Definitely 5 Stars! Everything was exactly as described and pictured, so there were no surprises. The house sits on a large lot, providing privacy, and a sense of seclusion, yet in a great location just minutes away from the wineries, Old Town Cottonwood, Page Springs, Jerome and Sedona. Mary is very accommodating, and a pleasure to work with. If you’re planning a trip to this area, this is the place to stay…a lot of bang for your buck! We’ll be back!

Good location, nice house

  • 4 of 5

My friends and I rented 'The Barn' while in the Sedona area on a girl's trip. Everything was as advertised and our stay was great. The house was around 90+ degrees when we arrived, as the swamp coolers were not turned on and the outside temp was over 100 degrees, but once we turned on the coolers the house came down to a reasonable temperature after awhile. The pool was very much enjoyed, especially due to the extra hot weather we experienced while there. One note: the only spices in the house are salt and pepper (and no condiments), so if you want to use more than that you'll have to bring it yourself. Our stay was totally worth what we paid and the owner was very easy to work with.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the nice review. Indeed, Cottonwood experienced an excessive heat warning during your stay, but the cooler does a nice job of making the place comfortable. Thank goodness, temperatures are back to normal. We do ask each guest to turn the cooler off after each guest's stay for conservation reasons. Also, we ask guests to remove all food items, for cleanliness reasons--salt and pepper are the only staples kept. I appreciate the comments and will add a note to the site regarding condiments. Thank you so much for taking good care of a place we love!

Perfect Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

We were very excited to get The Barn, our daughter lives in Cottonwood and the house was only 3miles away. She was excepting a baby due at Thanksgiving and so we as a family came and had an amazingly good time. Turkey and baby you can't get any better than that. I would diffently recommend The Barn to anyone coming to Cottonwood, so many things to do,we didn't get our trip to Sadona but we'll save it for next time, just didn't have enough time. The property was great we were able o play games out side and even had a polar bear contest. Kitchen was perfect for our entertaining as well.

A special place in the Verde Valleymn

  • 5 of 5

We were part of and participating in a wonderful wedding at a local winery and the Barn was so convenient as a "gathering place" for our families that were staying at various accommodations in Cottonwood. We will be back for another visit. Lovely location and amenities. Erwin S.
