Prescott cottage description

Enjoy your Prescott vacation amid the beautiful historic homes tree-lined South Mt. Vernon Avenue. Just blocks away from the quaint shops, restaurants, and attractions of historic downtown Prescott, AZ. Also within walking distance to our public library and live performance theaters. No stairs (3 steps inside), non-smoking, pet friendly, top location!

The Cedar (two bedroom/one bath) cottage sleeps 2-6 people. Originally built in 1923, this cottage has been remodeled to include a sun porch, cathedral ceilings and many windows creating an abundance of natural light. The great room boasts urban chic decor, sparkling clean tile floors, satellite flat-screen TV, queen sofa bed, stereo, fully outfitted kitchen and an overall feeling that is open and airy. Just off of the great room is the comfortable sun porch; a great place to enjoy your morning coffee or your afternoon wine. The master bedroom is carpeted and is complete with a queen bed, crisp white linens, night tables with reading lamps, ceiling fan, cable TV, large closet and dresser. The secondary bedroom is carpeted and includes another queen size bed, ceiling fan, reading light, crisp linens, dresser, and lovely soft colors.

We LOVE dogs. Please feel free to bring yours. If your pups are socialized, we invite them to romp in the fenced yard with the dogs of other guests. In addition to the fenced yard, you dogs will love taking you just 2 blocks to Acker Park. Acker Park is 80 acres of natural parkland within the City of Prescott. Your 4-legged family members will particularly enjoy the one-mile loop trail: lots of great smells, bushes, and places to run. A reasonable pet fee will apply to your stay in Cedar Cottage.

Being 5 blocks away from historic Courthouse Square, our location allows you to take sidewalks to all of the sites and sounds of downtown Prescott, Courthouse Square and Whiskey Row. However, once home, you’re back to small town peace and quiet. Speaking of peace and quiet, a 5-minute drive due south will put you in the Prescott National Forest complete with hiking, canoeing, fishing, fabulous vistas and amazing air!

Did you know that the Prescott’s year-round activities have made it one of the top destinations in the Southwest? Stroll to the dozens of antique shops, boutiques, stunning art galleries, and restaurants from your cottage. Enjoy the nightlife of Whiskey Row, as well as Prescott’s new state-of-the-art library also within walking distance. We also have several public golf courses nearby so bring your clubs!

With an average of 360 days of sunshine per year and four mild seasons, Prescott is a year-round destination. Prescott is known internationally for the World’s Oldest Rodeo in July, the Prescott Bluegrass Festival in June, dozens of arts and craft shows (some juried), and the Cowboy Poets Gathering. Did you know that Prescott is recognized as Arizona’s ‘official’ Christmas City? Join us for the spectacular tree lighting on Courthouse Square and our electric parade. Also, be part of the thousands of people who stroll the free live entertainment featured in every downtown shop for Acker night in December; a music festival like no other! For these attractions, be sure to book your stay early. We accept PayPal, VISA, Discover, MasterCard and E-Checks...Contact Kim today (928)925-9158
