Rimrock AZ House

  • 4 of 5

The home was very comfortable, private and relaxing. The location is quiet and peaceful. The only sound comes from nearby ranchers' animals. I enjoyed sitting outside and watching the hummingbirds. The metal artwork was great and makes the home unique. The owner was very accommodating and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The dirt roads up to the house are a bit rough in spots for a small car but we drove slowly and had no problems.

Out in the country but close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed out stay at this beautiful home. Everything went smoothly with Steven during the booking and with John when he showed us around his beautiful home. His metal work is extraordinary and added so much to our stay. The house is on top of hill, so you can see 360 degrees and yet the neighbors are close by so no feeling of being too far out. The road many said was bad we found easily manageable in our small SUV, and we noticed that John drove a small sedan with no problems either. You just have to drive slowly and there are a few little bumps, but that is all, nice and wide and well maintained.Everything you want is in the house and John encouraged us to "look around, its probably here and you can use it" including shampoo in the bathroom!!! Beds are comfortable, sheets and blankets good quality. Our son and daughter in law live in Sedona and many times the hotel prices there are just astronomical, so this will be our go to place in the future. One suggestion in the kitchen, Move some of the stuff in the stand alone cabinet into the cabinet above the sink and move the dishes and glasses from over the sink into there. They would be move accessible that way. I used a long landed spoon to take down a few glasses and just left them on the counter for our stay. Was very careful, but could have easily broken them. Could not have reached the wine glasses without a step stool. I am 5'7" with what my mom describes as "arms like an ape", a taller person could probably reach the glasses but I could not. Oh and that reminds me, the dishes were beautfiul, it was a pleasure to dine on them. Just a very nice place to stay, with everything you need and where you immediately feel at home. you are 20 minutes from Sedona, 20 minutes another way from Cottonwood and about the same from Camp Verde. Thank you Joh,, Karen for being so welcoming and Steven for processing everything so quickly!

Peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. The house is situated on a hill and somewhat private. There are other houses in the immediate area but you get the sense of privacy while there. The house itself was lovely. The owner is a metal artist and his work is displayed both inside and outside. The only thing you would need to bring if staying there is food. The kitchen has every appliance and cooking essential and is stocked with paper goods as well.

We met the owner, John, at the mini mart in town and followed him to the house where he gave us the tour. I see where others commented about the road. There is a long “primitive” road to get to the house. It is, by all means, drivable. It is not what you would be accustomed to if you live in the city but it should not deter you from staying here.

We took advantage of the National parks in the area and made the short drive to Sedona as well. I will certainly recommend this house to family and friends who are looking for a quiet getaway.

Great location, unique home

  • 5 of 5

What a fun house to visit! Lots of fantastic metal art, many colors, but also all the practical items that make a week-long stay work well, including plenty of dishes, kitchen items, and towels. The convenient location is right in the middle of all the interesting places to see.
