Arizona Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1-3/4 bathrooms, sleeps 4

Our home is located right on the water in Oak Creek Canyon and is just 4 miles from up town Sedona! The creek is stocked with Rainbow Trout if fishing is your thing....and the deck has a grill and eating area if you want to grill it! Not into cooking, a great deli/store that also serves breakfast is located right across the road. Enjoy long strolls on the forest service road that is right outside your door. Hiking of all levels is abundant in the canyon and swimming/tubing in the creek during warmer months is a wonderful way to spend your day! And, Slide Rock is just a few miles down the road. If shopping, golfing, gambling, dining, four-wheeling or sight-seeing is your thing, you are only minutes away to everything Sedona and Northern Arizona has to offer including the wild animal park, Bearizona and Indian ruins. And, if you've never been or want to go again, we are close enough for a day-trip to the Grand Canyon too!

About Barbara Pancrazio

We, Angelo and Barbara, are partners in life (married 30 years) as well as partners in business. At one time, we owned and operated a Food Service Brokerage business in the Phoenix area. But 'wised up' and moved to beautiful Sedona where we now are licensed realtors with Coldwell Banker First Affiliate.

Barbara Pancrazio purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Barbara Pancrazio chose Arizona

Having lived up high on a hill in the canyon many years, we longed to live on the creek. So in 2004, we found what we consider to be the best spot in Arizona and loving it ever since, our Cottage on Oak Creek! Barbara's parents developed and opened Rainbow Trout Farm in the early 1960's which is located just south of the cottage so this is home! Angelo was a 'city boy', originally from Chicago, but now you can't get him out of his jeans and the country lifestyle.

What makes this cottage unique

Mother Nature provides many pleasures for us to enjoy year around in Oak Creek Canyon. The snow fall in the winter is just enough to satisfy our need to see it fall and then it melts within a day or so. We must admit, however, that when spring comes, we can hardly wait to have cocktail hour on the back deck overlooking Oak Creek. Wild life is everywhere and we have been privileged to see eagles, blue heron flying overhead, deer on the back road and even a skunk swimming in the creek. And yet, a great deli is just across the street and uptown Sedona is only 4 miles away! What's not to love!

Quiet creek side retreat with patio perfect for relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four spent a long weekend as a much- needed respite from the Phoenix heat in late June here. Location was perfect! The patio overlooking the creek is shaded by trees much of the day. We just moved chairs around periodically. It was my reading room.

We went down to the creek to wade in the water and enjoy the view. My son likes photography and enjoyed walking up and down the creek taking pictures.

The kitchen is well-stocked for cooking but if you'd rather go out, the Indian Gardens Cafe & Market has great breakfast and lunch and is walking distance.

We really enjoyed our stay! Thank you Barbara!

Unique, private and welcoming

  • 4 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed this private, unique and welcoming neighborhood. On a hot day you really appreciate this cool heavily wooded and shaded area. Hearing and seeing the creek flow and walking the dogs to the spring house were my favorite experiences. The restaurant across the street was great for breakfast. We were visiting over 4th weekend and 89A totally stopped with traffic from 3pm on into the night due to everyone coming back toward Sedona from trails and slide rock ... so you don't want to plan to drive into town during such busy times. Would only have been more delighted if the price (and all the extra fees) were less.

Owner's Response: What a delight these guests were! This property is located on the creek, in a small, gated neighborhood and I have had several neighbors stop me since their stay and comment on what lovely, friendly people they were and their three dogs were complimented as well! Hope to see them all again! Other than the rental cost itself, Cottage on Oak Creek has only one fee charged all the time to guests......that is the one-time cleaning fee. Since we are pet friendly, we do charge an additional pet fee if someone wants to bring furry children. That is it. Since earlier in the year, Homeaway/VRBO began charging a "service fee" to renters using their service. This payment is included in the payment schedule as "service fee" but that amount goes directly to Homeaway/VRBO, not to confuse it with what the owner receives as payment for renting the property. Hopefully this provides some clarification.

Amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

Barbara was very accommodating and responsive. We requested an early check in day of and she pulled it off.

The house itself is lovely and comfortable. The beds were comfy and it had a fully stocked kitchen and BBQ. The deck made our stay so relaxing and peaceful! The location was amazing, right off the highway and close to town, but far enough away for all the crowds and tourists. Oak canyon is beautiful. There is access to the creek and hiking trails right off the property.

I highly recommend the cafe across the street and picking up some trout from trout farm down the road to BBQ.

We can not wait to return!

The Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

It was our first visit to Sedona and it was amazing!. Love this cottage. Very clean, cozy and perfectly located. The creek off of the deck added a one of a kind beautiful start and finish to every day. While we we there, we had some business which required immediate attention....Sheila, the property manager, assisted us with every request for help. As a result, this interruption was minimized and resolved very quickly. We will be sure to return to Sedona (more hikes to finish!) and no doubt will stay in this cottage again.

I stayed here to celebrate my 60th birthday with my mom and 2 cousins. A girls trip. This place was just perfect. It was very warm and welcoming. Clean and with everything you would need. The setting was magical. Thank you for a wonderful weekend!

Car: necessary

Oak Creek Canyon , where our home is located, is just outside of Sedona which has been named as one of the most beautiful places on Earth! Outdoor activities include Slide Rock which is a natural water rock 'slide' created through eons of years by the running waters of Oak Creek as well as a plethora of hiking trails. Sedona features many restaurants, shopping, outdoor activities and natural red rock scenery. This area is known for the Native American wares available as well as its Fine Arts. A short drive will take you to Jerome, a ghost town and historic copper mining community, that is now a fun-filled sight-seeing destination. So much to do!
