Sports & Adventure Activities
We really enjoyed our stay at the Cozy Cottage. It is quiet, CLEAN, and charming. The place is spacious for a studio with interesting stained glass/art, antique furniture and a nice bathroom. Kitchen is well equipped and the new gas grill a huge plus. The beds are comfy. We didn't use the tennis court but did swing on the tree swing. The location is central to exploring the Gila National Forest. So much hiking in the cool summer air (compared to Tucson), we will certainly be back.
You were great guests!! Hope you come see us again, soon. Thank you for the review. Shirley
You are going to love it

So sorry we missed you. We are so thankful you enjoyed your time at the Cottage! Shirley
Tranquility and Peaceful
We stayed at the cottage and enjoyed the grounds it was beautiful. The cottage is small but comfortable. If I didn’t need the internet and cellular service I would stay again. I was in the process of purchasing a home and the lender, realtor and Escrow had problems reaching me off and on due to weather and location being in the mountains and isolated.
Very nice family!
Quiet and scenic
Very relaxing and enjoyable. The host made the stay even more enjoyable.
This cottage was perfect for my husband and I. The owners Shirley and Marty were welcoming but never intrusive. They even left a birthday cake for my husbands big day. The cottage was very clean, well stocked with all needed supplies, it was very quiet and the bed was quite comfy. We visited over memorial weekend and were happy that the cottage was within 10 miles of fishing, but tucked away nicely from all the traffic. The grounds were also beautiful and well kept. I would recommend this cottage and hope to possibly return at a later date.
Nice, clean, great hosts
Used as base for visiting Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument (I think it was the closest option from the monument, still 1:30 away). Nice, clean cottage, with great hosts ready to help with info about the area and with anything missing from the cabin even at 10pm. Perfect for 2 people, we were 4 (2 adults, 2 children) and it felt a bit cramped, but not a real issue. Make sure you load up with groceries as food options in the area are VERY limited.
We really enjoyed you and your family. Thank you for review! Shirley
