About This Listing
Street view. Cottage is separate from the main house with privacy fence. Cathedral Rock looms in the distance.
Charming detached studio-apartment cottage has plenty of privacy! No sharing space with others! One Double bed and one Single bed, kitchen with refrigerator, stove, microwave, toaster oven, eating area, and bath with handicap access. Bright and clean with hardwood floors. This "home stay" unit is perfect for one, two, or three people. Yes, your pets are welcome!
Stroll down to the creek's edge - this is PRIVATE creek access for just our community of a few homes - you won't be running into hoards of tourists near the water here!
The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes, glasses, pots and pans to prepare and serve meals. In late autumn (when the leaves on the trees drop) until spring, you'll have a view of Cathedral Rock from the kitchen window. The cottage is surrounded by red rock and pastoral views. Located outside city limits, and yet only 10 minutes to town where you'll find shopping, art galleries, theaters and events.
This stand-alone cottage is in the Cathedral Rock vortex and very quiet and private. NO TV, no phone, nothing but the INTERNET to distract you from all the hiking, biking, fishing, and meditating you want to do. Good spot for writers, artist, photographers, hikers and those on a spiritual vision quest. (Although many guests are watching movies/TV on their lap-top computers and Ipads.)
This is a great spot on Disney Lane -- within the historic Red Rock Loop Rd/ Cathedral Valley area with MANY neighborhood trails -- and just a short walk to the creek. Conveniently located between Crescent Moon and Red Rock State Parks, there's much to see and do here.
The water in the cottage is from a natural spring well 450 ft below the ground - no chlorine or fluoride added - just fresh pure, clean water. An irrigation ditch from the creek also runs through the neighborhood and is on the north side of the cottage. The sound of the water from creek and ditch is soothing and restful.
A car is recommended - Public transportation picks up at the high school only twice a day. Red Rock Loop Road is windy with many beautiful views with turn-outs to enjoy them. Parking at the cottage is plentiful and only steps away from the front door. Room enough to park your RV, boat, or trailer, too.
Please keep in mind that this is a RURAL area and there's a great deal of wildlife in the area - deer, coyotes, javelina and great blue herons frequent our neighborhood. It's very quiet.
Pets are welcome and although it is completely fenced, please keep your dog on leash outside the cottage. A non-refundable pet deposit required of $10 for each animal per day. Although there is a dog in the main house next door, she is not allowed in the cottage or in the fenced yard surrounding the cottage.
Check in time is 3 pm, check out time is 11 am. (Flexible if you arrange a different time in advance.)

Interaction with Guests
Those who book the quiet cottage usually do so because they want their privacy. However, if you need to speak with the hosts, there's a doorbell on the back door and/or a phone number posted in the cottage.
The Cathedral Rock Valley is a historic area dating back to Sedona's earliest settlers. The Wells Fargo road and the first schoolhouse built in Sedona are nearby. Walt Disney purchased this land for various films and shows.
You'll need a car in Sedona. The public transit picks up only twice a day at the corner of Upper Red Rock Loop Rd and 89A. Taxi service is spotty and slow.

No rules. Just do what's right.
We never did meet Jocelyn, Bill was friendly. The creek picture is not accurate, the pathway and bank are overgrown, no place to sit. The location was quiet and private and Sedona is delightful.
The unit was clean and very well stocked, car parking very convenient.
The patio area had a swing seat and dining set and was very nice to sit in the shade.
I'm so sorry I missed you Christopher! And I'm sorry you missed the creek. There's 2 chairs there - I just returned from the creek and it's lovely down there. The pathway was cleared before you checked in, which leads me to believe you did not find the spot. Too bad you did not call us or knock on our door - we rarely disturb guests as we wish all a quiet and peaceful stay. We will be remodeling soon and adding chairs, but we will not be adding a TV.
This was a wonderful experience!!! Jocelyn and Bill are true to their word about giving you your privacy, yet they are available if you need them. The cottage itself is warm comfortable and inviting. the antique furniture gives it a very home-y feel. The pictures are accurate. The creek is secluded and very peaceful, a short walk will get you there.
Everything you could possibly need, if you forgot something, is there. She thought of everything!! Check the condiments above the stove before you get some, it's probably already there :)
I had a wonderful 4 days there, I will definitely be back!!!
What a great place to stay on a visit to Sedona! It made me wish I had more time to spend there. The cabin is comfortable, quiet, private, and charming. There's a pleasant patio in front with a swing and a table and chairs for outdoor dining. The kitchen was well stocked if you don't feel like eating in restaurants. My only regret was that my comings and goings didn't coincide with Jocelyn's, and I never got a chance to meet her. She left the cabin open when I arrived, and she provided detailed instructions on everything.
I would happily stay here again if I get to come back to Sedona.
We loved our stay here! The cottage was clean and fully stocked with toiletries and condiments for cooking! We enjoyed hot coffee every morning and our walk to the creek was beautiful. We met Joclyn on our walk and chatted with her for a bit. She was lovely and very willing to answer any question we had. I would stay here again in an hearbeat!
Just stayed at the cottage over the weekend to celebrate my anniversary. We loved everything about it. The simplicity and peacefulness is so refreshing and the creek is beautiful! We will definitely be coming back! :)
The cottage was very clean and well-equipped. Every need was considered and Jocelyn sent clear instructions and helpful information before we arrived. It really is a turnkey guest home and very comfortable. Helpful information is found throughout in anticipation of any questions.
The setting was peaceful and private. Deer nibbling in the back field, crayfish in the creek, house finches at the feeder, geckos scurrying along the fence, and a night sky full of stars. Also very close to hiking trails and downtown Sedona. We would definitely stay again and highly recommend Jocelyn's cottage to other travelers.
