Relax, retreat and recuperate at Hilltop Haven House in Rimrock, Arizona. Panoramic views, comfortable decor, easy access and centrally located - just 20 minute drive to Bell Rock in Sedona, 20 minutes to Camp Verde & Cottonwood, 2 1/2 hrs to the Grand Canyon The house is equipped for family and friends to connect in an atmosphere that is quiet, peaceful, and enjoys outstanding views of the surrounding mountains. Additional accomodations can be made by also renting the detached cottage.

The space
The house has two bedrooms, each with a king bed and the living room has a queen sleeper sofa with a very comfortable memory foam mattress. There is an inviting covered porch with table and chairs for 6 and an additional "view" porch that looks eastward toward Coconino National Forest and the Mogollon Rim. Situated between the dark sky communitites of Sedona and Camp Verde, conditions for astrophotography and night sky viewing are often optimal.

Rimrock is a very safe and quiet community, far enough from the busy traffic and high lodging rates of Sedona but close enough to access all the attractions of northern Arizona, including hundreds of miles of hiking and biking trails.

The house is cooled by a large rooftop evaporative cooler, which is very adequate for even the hottest days of the summer. Additionally, evap coolers have been proven to be much healthier than A/C units in limiting the spread of the Coronavirus because fresh air is constantly recirculating throughout the house.

Some people ask if we have a grill and we do not have an outdoor gas grill due to fire danger. Instead we have a counter top George Foreman electric gill available for guests. You can learn more about these online at Youtube.

We do sometimes make exceptions for pets that are well trained and behaved, do not shed or bark (incessantly) and would stay off all the furniture, including bedding. We also ask that pets not be left alone as this is when most problems occur. Please describe your pet in advance before making a booking. Upon approval, there is an additional $10/day charge for pets which is handled through Airbnb and owners are responsible for cleaning up after their pet.

We do expect the construction of a neighbor's new home on adjoining property beginning sometime in early November 2020 and ending sometime early in 2021. The contractor is a well respected professional who will keep noise and extra traffic to a minimum while this project is underway.

One might think of Rimrock as a bedroom community to Sedona. That's because you're likely to sleep more soundly here as the night ushers in a quietude, peace and stillness not present in the more congested tourist areas.

During your stay

Rachel or I try to be available during check in; detailed instructions are provided in case we cannot be there at that time. We respect our guests privacy and generally strive to make sure everyone is as comfortable and well taken-care of as possible. Because this is also our home, when the house is in use we either travel or stay in our apartment next to the cottage.
