The Space

The Blue Heron Guest House is a renovated workshop built at the turn of the twentieth century when Arizona’s copper boom was still in its heyday. The owners of the main house on the property maintained the workshop’s rustic exterior while fully renovating the interior to provide a charming, cozy hideaway in historic Clarkdale, Arizona, nestled in the Verde Valley between Jerome and the red rocks of Sedona.

The Blue Heron is a studio cottage with a queen bed, futon, private bathroom and shower, and a kitchenette. It comfortably sleeps two adults and can accomodate a small child as well.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • My friend and I had a terrific time at the Blue Heron Inn. Tom and Truly made sure we had everything we needed and the little cottage itself was absolutely darling. Especially the rockers on the porch and the visiting cattle early in the morning added to the rural and cozy atmosphere. Clarkdale is a friendly little town and feels a lot more laid back and down to earth than nearby Sedona. All in all it was a lovely stay.

  • Tom was super nice and very accommodating. We enjoyed our stay at The Blue Heron and also enjoyed our time in Clarkdale.

  • We loved our visit to Arizona and our stay at The Blue Heron! Tom and Truly were incredible hosts, both friendly and helpful. After emailing us detailed map directions in advance, Tom met us on the property right at 4:00 on check-in day. Our hosts brought us delicious muffins and fruit each morning and always made sure we had everything we needed (which wasn't much, because the guest house is so beautifully set up!). Nestled in a peaceful neighborhood, the guest house is quiet and private but also conveniently close to the towns of Cottonwood and Jerome, which offer lots of dining and exploration options. We used the cottage as a home base for day trips all over the area. Little extras like the kitchenette, bottled water, plenty of fluffy towels, bath robes, and provided soap and shampoo made our trip a true vacation. The house was pristine, tastefully decorated, and comfortable. Thanks for a great week in the Grand Canyon State!

  • The Blue Heron was very clean and quiet. Tom was friendly. I did not meet Truly. It was another good airbnb experience.

  • What a beautiful getaway we had. The guest house was spotless with nice food treats for us to enjoy. It's the perfect little place to stay if you're interested in visiting some great AZ wineries and enjoying the local restaurants just down the road in Cottonwood. (Bocce has some amazing gluten-free pizza!) We would definitely stay at the Blue Heron again, thanks Tom and Truly!

  • Based on the reviews, I knew I was going to enjoy staying at The Blue Heron. However, it far exceeded my expectations. The cottage was very comfortable, well appointed and tastefully decorated. Especially nice were the bottle of waters, assortment of yogurts, packets of instant oatmeal, coffee & teas and a huge basket of fruit! We honestly didn’t need to go out for breakfast once in 4 days! The location was perfect. All the hubbub of Sedona was 20 minutes away if and when we wanted it. But we got to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet. If you’re headed for Sedona and want to experience more than the busy tourist areas (which are very nice), definitely stay at the Blue Heron Guest House. You’ll be so glad you did!

  • Truly and Tom - we had an absolutely wonderful time! We were so happy to find a quiet and beautiful spot to relax. We really appreciated all the nice touches - you took such great care of us! We will be back and will definitely recommend your place to our friends. Thanks again,

    Martin and Lynn

  • This is a cozy and wonderful place to stay! We spent the day on the Verde Valley Railroad then had a wonderful dinner at Bocce in Clarkdale. Being able to spend the night in such a lovely little cottage made for a relaxing outing instead of rushing back to the valley. It was beautifully decorated and thoughtfully outfitted to meet every need. I highly recommend the Blue Heron and we will be staying here again in the future.

  • What a great spot! If you want to do sedona but be out of the rat race, here's a great place- convenient to the excellent little towns of cottonwood and Clarkdale and Jerome!
    Tom and Truly were attentive and stayed out of our hair, a great balance!
    we hope to return someday.

As residents of Clarkdale, Arizona for over thirty years, we had the Blue Heron Guest House restored by local craftsmen from a turn of the century workshop to provide travelers with a home away from home tucked quietly in the heart of the Verde Valley.
