Quiet Creekside Retreat in Sedona's Backyard

Bedrooms 2
Space 180 m²
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

2 BR, 2 BA, sleeps 4-6

Creek Cottage is a unique property located directly on Oak Creek. Relax on one of two private decks overlooking the creek and enjoy spectacular views of the Oak Creek canopy and green, undeveloped ranch land. In this fisher's and naturalist's paradise, you will enjoy the sights and sounds of plentiful wildlife (deer, foxes, quail, hummingbirds, ducks, bass, javelina at night). You can hike Sedona's red rock trails by day and escape the tourist crowds by night.

This quiet private property is in a small, remote, gated community between Sedona and Cottonwood, Arizona. A nicely-furnished single-family home surrounded by decks and beautiful well-established gardens, the house sits on a bluff, slightly above Oak Creek. A quaint rock wall trail leads you down to a year-round swimming and fishing hole. There are small pools and rapids 100 yards upstream to explore.

Local attractions: Several short hiking trails exist in the community, including one on Oak Creek and one on Spring Creek (a small perennial fresh-water creek). There's a lovely park, great for children, in the community as well as a swimming pool and hot tub (both summer only season (from mid-May to mid-October, actual dates vary). There is also a sauna that is open all year. Please email or call for more details on this property.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"This house is in perfect condition, Clean, well furnished and in a GREAT area. Minutes from Sedona (and Cottonwood for grocery shopping). Sheri, the renter,was a joy to work with. You will find comfortable sleeping quarters and clean clean clean baths,a great fireplace and everything you have in your own home to cook. This home is a short drive to everything, however, still secluded. This is a gated secure community, with views that astound. We will be won't be disappointed

Awesome view and property

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay on Oak Creek. This home has everything you need for a great stay. It is a little dated, but very clean and what a view. Lots of deck space and great to sit out in the morning with your coffee and enjoy. We did some fishing in the creek, didn't catch much but it was fun trying! This property is very close to lots of activities. Sedona, Jerome, old Cottonwood and Clarkdale/Verde Canyon Railroad are all worth visiting. Sheri was great to work with and we would definitely stay here again. Thanks for a great week!!

Fabulous Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week at Oak Creek Cottage. It was fabulous with everything we were looking for - beautiful setting, away from the hustle and bustle of Sedona but close enough for an easy drive to hiking and restaurants. Sheri was immediately available and very helpful in answering our questions. Highly recommended.

Oak Creek Cottage

  • 4 of 5

This was a repeat stay for us. Stayed at Oak Creek Cottage several years ago. Everything was as we remembered it. Nice home with beautiful views on the large comfortable deck. Nice amenities. Convenient to downtown Sedona and all the hiking and biking trails. Would stay here again and again.

Relaxation and peace

  • 5 of 5

Creek Cottage is the perfect place to base yourself when exploring this amazing area. Central to everything you want to explore and such a beautiful peaceful place to come back to at the end of the day. A home away from home with everything you need to enjoy your vacation.
