Adorable two-bedroom cottage in Oak Creek Canyon, steps away from a PRIVATE stretch of Oak Creek, and just a few minutes drive from the town of Sedona. Well-behaved pets (furry family members) are always welcome. Oak Creek Canyon Cottage is a 1960s bungalow located in lower Oak Creek Canyon, one mile south of Slide Rock State Park on highway 89A and 5 miles north of downtown Sedona. Because it is located in a lightly forested section of Oak Creek Canyon at 5000 feet in elevation, the cottage is a lovely, mild spot in which to spend the winter, and a shady, cool spot to beat the heat in the summer. Oak Creek itself is just across the street, so you can take a folding chair down to sit on the banks and enjoy the water, fish and birds. The cottage is furnished with a queen bed, a full bed, and a full-sized futon in the living area, and decorated with eclectic art, often featuring regional artists. The cozy living room has a rocking chair where you can sit back and enjoy a view of the red rocks that surround the cottage. Internet service is provided to the cottage at 25MB by HughesNet Gen5 satellites. There is a small, but fully equipped kitchen, a bright and sunny dining area, and a back deck where you can eat outside or hang out and watch the humming birds. Other amenities include brand new laundry facilities, an outdoor shower, and a BBQ grill. The garden is filled with fragrant flowers in the spring and summer and offers a variety of fruit bearing trees in the fall. There is a hiking trail (Sterling Pass) just a quarter mile from the house, and many, many more hikes in the nearby area. This is a wonderful place to use as a base to explore all that Northern Arizona has to offer: it is 30 minutes to Flagstaff, 1 hour to Jerome, and 2 hours to the Grand Canyon, just to mention just a few fantastic destinations within easy driving distance. Note: Because of the house's location, there is some road noise during the day --- but it is very peaceful at night when the day visitors go home!

Why Alice Gibb chose Sedona
Adorable cottage in amazing location: lush green area with views of red rock. Access to private (neighborhood-owned) stretch of Oak Creek. Hiking trails within walking distance. Charming and comfortable furnishings and well-stocked kitchen.
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottage/neighborhood have private access to Oak Creek. The cottage is far enough south in Oak Creek Canyon that you have gorgeous red rock views and it is only a short drive to Sedona --- but the cottage is also far enough north in the Canyon so that it is surrounded by gorgeous trees and you have easy access to recreation sites at Slide Rock and West Fork.

May 1-Sept. 1, 2018 We had a wonderful time staying in Oak Creek Canyon Cottage this summer! The cottage is so cute and cozy, it made us feel right at home. Super location, in a quiet neighborhood, with the most friendly of neighbors. The red rock view is stunning! We really enjoyed having coffee in the morning while delighting in the view. In addition, the many fruit trees are delightful! We had the best stay and hope to return soon.
Cozy country cottage
My family and I enjoyed staying here very much. The owners are kind people who put comfort and care to small details for their guests. Couldn't ask for a nicer experience !
Perfect cottage minutes from Sedona
We loved our stay at this cottage. There are too many reasons to list them all. The owners were extremely kind to us, it was minutes from Sedona, not too far from Flagstaff, the weather was warmer than Flagstaff yet cooler than Sedona, and hiking trails were all over. We plan on visiting this area more in the future and we will always call these owners first so we can stay in this cottage. We highly recommend this place to anyone that is visiting the area.
Adorable cottage, tucked in the canyon very close to Sedona, but a reprieve from the chaos
I absolutely love this property! Alice and Larry are extremely welcoming hosts, and have a gem of a cottage. The canyon is about 7 degrees cooler than Sedona proper, and is very lush and quiet. This was a welcoming contrast to all of the red rock, sun exposure, and activity in uptown Sedona. Yet, Sedona is less than a 10 minute drive. In the colder months, the cottage has a cozy, gas burning fireplace, which makes the living room warm and toasty. Both beds, and the futon were all very comfortable for sleeping. The kitchen was well-appointed, and the second bathroom addition was great. The fenced in back yard offered privacy, and they have just added a beautiful new deck. I stayed here almost 6 weeks, and I will be back every year! This cottage offers the true feeling of "getting away". They have private access to Oak Creek across the street, which would be amazing in the summer. One of my favorite hikes in Sedona, Sterling Pass, is just a few hundred yards away. Thank you, Alice and Larry, for sharing your property so others may enjoy!
Thanks so much for visiting Beth (and Bella)! We loved having you and hope to see you back next year!
Charming cottage, would stay again with Wifi.
This was a charming cottage, and the only reason I’m giving 4 stars instead of 5, is that just prior to our 30 day stay, a storm knocked out the wifi and was unable to be repaired. The owner, Alice was very fair with a compensation, but it still altered our daily schedule. That being said, if wifi were assured in the future I’d stay again as it’s very cozy with everything we needed! A couple of nice surprises that we didn’t expect included a second ½ bathroom, and a fenced backyard for the dog. The location is scenic, and less than 10 minutes to town, hiking, galleries, everything! Loved seeing javelinas in the front yard on a regular basis. 5 minutes from the best deli ever – Garlands – just up the road.
Thanks for your flexibility during your stay. We were glad to have you! We have replaced the (terrible) satellite internet with slow-but-very-reliable cellular data service through Verizon. Two new cell towers are going up in the Canyon, so it will be even better soon!
Take care, Alice
Great Getaway Spot!
I stayed here for. Month and a half, it is a quiet peaceful gem tucked away! Private access to a hike and the creek. The home is so quant! Both beds are comfortable. The original 1960's kitchen is so cool and there is everything you might need for snacking or cooking. Great little setting for your get away!
