Property description

The cottage is is a self catering, charming old adobe on a semi-private road high in the Prescott pines. Homey, sweet ole cottage comfort like living on the farm yet only 2.5 miles from downtown Prescott. Well appointed with all the amenities but not a bit pretentious. Bring your soft ole jeans and relax. Remember what it was like to have mom or grandma hang out the sheets on the line and the fragrance of fresh ironed sheets? That's what is waiting for you when you lay down to sleep like a baby in cozy, comfy beds. Quiet nights and a warm fire in the wood stove. You'll be near all the amenities, many hiking trails take you to Goldwater lake very nearby. Walking distance to market just down the street and restaurants and services just 2.5 miles away. Two bedrooms, 1 bath, and sun porch. Cottage is nestled in a bower of trees and seasonal creek in rear, pine forest across the road. My home next door on an acre and the cottage a third of an acre. Waterfall and pond near enough to see and hear. Cottage has Saltillo tile floors and original foot thick adobe walls, cool in summer, warm in winter. Old clawfoot tub/shower, barbeque, all kitchen and bath necessities washer/dryer, Pets are welcome the yard is fully fenced and fresh eggs in the morning from my happy hens (when they are laying in the spring).

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: I lived in Sedona for 18 yrs. My business there was a jeep tour company called Time Expeditions, my partner was an anthropologist we created a cultural and natural history tour to a twelfth century cliff dwelling. We sold the company in l995. I left Sedona for the Pacific Northwest, bought a beautiful property and created a Bed and Breakfast called Small Island Farm and Inn. Six years later moved back to Prescott where my family all resides.

Why the Owner Chose Prescott:
My home was adjacent to this wonderful property and tied together they are a unique oasis high in the pines of Prescott.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The property is close to everything, The square downtown and all the amenities. Markets close by and hiking available through the woods. It's a perfect location and yet so secluded feeling. It's a little oasis in the heart of the town. I have 5 dogs, 2 cats and a dozen chickens. It's a little farm life yet not far from all the necessities.
