The cottage is light and airy inside, with vaulted ceilings and windows all around that highlight the wonderful trees and gardens on this property. There are some red rock views, too - during the winter, especially, when the trees drop their leaves. The floorplan is well-designed and spacious, and is complimented by the 400 square foot furnished patio that is accessed from the livingroom. Kitchen is very well equipped, with all the dishes and cookware you'll need. Lots of extras, too, like a coffee bean grinder, French press, crockpot, blender, and even basic spices are supplied. For birders and nature lovers this is an exceptionally good location - only 5 minutes from Sedona Performing Arts Center for Sedona's annual Hummingbird Festival, 10 minutes to Red Rock State Park and only 15 minutes to two Important Bird Areas that attract over 200 bird species. The main hub for Sedona birding information, Jay's Bird Barn, is only a few minutes by car or bike.

The cottage is only a 10 minute walk to Over the Edge bike shop, where you can rent bikes and other equipment, and get trail advice from the very helpful staff. Need to wash all that red dirt off your bike ? No problem, there's a work space for you in the backyard, with workstand, hose, and power nozzle.
