Property description

This cabin can sleep six: one bedroom with NEW firm mattress with European top queen bed, a carpeted loft with queen bed and stair access, and a futon (double bed, thick mattress) in great room. It comes with complete kitchen and bath, all linens and towels included, clothes washer and dryer, fireplace, firewood (I supply), as well as barbecue grill and patio set in backyard. Since the end of August 2015 it has been upgraded and remodeled so fantastically that I think you will fall in love with it! New lighting throughout and ceiling fan in the master bedroom; new laundry room with pantry and hot water (formerly the cabin had been in a screened patio so hot water could not be used); new dining room with custom alligator juniper breakfast bar pass through and magical lighting; new sleek refrigerator, 7' leather sofa; shelving and desk custom made of alligator juniper as is the breakfast bar and opening surrounds, new operable windows with views of Cathedral Rock and the native trees and wildlife, and more. The views at this 1/3 acre property are absolutely awesome, and you will also be provided the Grand Annual Red Rock Pass. You can walk to Crescent Moon Ranch Recreation Area to access Oak Creek from the cabin -- Google it for amazing images, esp. in the fall!

At the cabin there are games, c.d. player, books, and great hikes. We also have TV and DVD; hi-speed wireless internet, and free phone service all 50 states. I supply the Grand Annual Red Rock pass for free parking on trailheads and admission to Crescent Moon Recreation Area, the West Fork of Oak Creek (Zane Grey wrote about it in Call of the Canyon)! Check out the books detailing the hiking and biking trails and spend those gorgeous Sedona days in outdoor activities which you will never forget. Here is a piece that I wrote to a guest summer 2016, when asked about the "presence" she and guest who have commented in the guest book were aware of:

"I purchased this cabin in 1998 from the original builder/owner from 1960. He had been superintendent of schools in Glendale, AZ, and his family decided to sell it at the end of his life. He was not ill and did not die in the cabin. In fact, I spoke to my 97.5 year old neighbor who knew him and family, and she said she was sure noone had ever died there. That said, there was no evidence of a presence until 2006 when the cabin had work, esp. roof work, done, leaving it empty for a month. When next I returned, the former minor wind sounds became creaks and animal noises. I had my contractor go through the entire structure and seal or screen any openings.

Personally I have experienced a calming, friendly presence. Most of my guests have enjoyed good feelings and ease with that has been described as possibly a mother and young son. I don't know how to attribute the sometimes nearly alarming cracking sounds, except that she may be forcing out any spriits that would not be well intentioned. It seems their presence is beneficent; when new addition was built last summer and all electrical, etc. was brought up to code, I asked our spirits to please find other dwellings if ever they could not bring light and good ambience to the cabin's guests. In response I received a loving ray of sunshine across my body. And that's my experience.

Guests have been more involved, with New Year's family 2 years in a row knowing that the female allowed her lingerie robe to brush against them and the boy touching the foot of the youngster staying there. He woke mom up to ask if she knew the boy who did that! More recently I had guests who are paranormal/metaphysical spiritists and they had great feelings and experiences with them! May there ever be friendly exchanges and even protections from those whose "lives" intertwine at the cabin at 50 Zane Grey Lane!"

The back of property drops down to a dry creek wash where javelinas, quail and coyote often visit. With rains it becomes a creek which you will thrill to sit on our bank beside. Recently a guest specified three pages in my guest book of all the birds she spotted on the property!! It is a very short walk or drive to Crescent Moon Ranch Park with access to Oak Creek, an area open to hiking and creek access. Need I mention again that the cabin is incredibly scenic (full view of Cathedral Rock) and wooded as well Since the cabin is in a small neighborhood surrounded by National Forest, you can hike or mountain bike from our door.

Guest Comments: Marcia, we came home to find your nice note letting me know that we were back online with e-mail and telephone. Thank you so much for taking care of this problem for us. As you know, it was critical that I be able to communicate to my daughter.

We have enjoyed your cabin so very much along with the beautiful area of Sedona. You also have lovely neighbors. David and I look forward to seeing you on Whidbey Island or here in Sedona. Corinne 4/2009



Guest comments: Barbara and Victor

We're from California (Marina County) so all my 'new age' friends will love that Cathedral Rock was majestically sitting at our front door! ...all that 'vortex' myth and magic.
Most magic for us were our 2 times daily hikes into the Oak Creek area. I have always wanted to walk forever in a creek bed and to then plunge into swimming holes! How glorious to find this dream right here! so much stream…so many swimming holes magically showing up along the walks...so little time! Though we did have a wonderful week, and so many quiet areas of delicious sanctuary where we just sat for hours falling into each moment. Thanks for this great spot!
Our last day -- Gentle wind chimes birdsong scent of Juniper, warm breeze fluttering, yellow and white butterflies
Our little family of quails scooting by (above the table is a rocky mountain juniper - can live up to 1500 years). Don't forget to sit out late with the stars...8/17/08
...and the full moon! Sandy

Location

Car: Recommended

The stunning natural beauty of the area combined with its relaxed atmosphere, spiritual center, and vortex energy has drawn many artists and naturalists to the area. Art galleries are numerous, offering many varieties of art in all price ranges. Sedona is located 120 miles north of Phoenix in Arizona's central mountains. It is 30 miles south of Flagstaff.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: Moving from Puget Sound to the Valley of the Sun (Phoenix/Scottsdale, AZ) in 1989, left my family longing for a cool, wooded getaway. I bought and renovated this cabin (built in 1960), in 1997 and have had hundreds of truly happy guests stay here, leaving us the occasional available weekend! I love sitting by a cool evening fireside with my dachshunds -- you will too!

Why the Owner Chose Sedona, AZ, USA:
We adored Sedona and the hikes, the creek, the activities and the year round great climate. We hike right from our background either into a box canyon leading to hills with magnificent views or to Crescent Moon Recreation Area where we can swim in Oak Creek, visit Stupas, photograph some of the best views and ecosystems Sedona offers. We also benefit from the VORTEX energy!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Direct vortex path from stunning Cathedral Rock and short walking distance to Oak Creek certainly affects energy and consciousness. I love sharing this amongst the other benefits of a genuine cabin on wooded acreage and a view that leaves me breathless. Here is a piece that I wrote to a 2016 guest, when asked about the "presence" she was aware of: "I purchased this cabin in 1998 from the original builder/owner from 1960. He had been superintendent of schools in Glendale, AZ, and his family decided to sell it at the end of his life. He was not ill and did not die in the cabin. In fact, I spoke to my 97.5 year old neighbor who knew him and family, and she said she was sure noone had ever died there. That said, there was no evidence of a presence until 2006 when the cabin had roof work done, leaving it empty for a month. When next I returned, the former minor wind sounds became creaks etc.so my contractor went through the entire structure screening any openings. I have experienced a calming, friendly presence. Most of my guests have enjoyed good feelings and ease with that has been described as possibly a mother and young son. I don't know how to attribute the sometimes nearly alarming cracking sounds; she may be forcing out any bad intentioned spriits. It seems their presence is beneficent; when new addition was built last summer and all was brought up to code, I asked our spirits to please find other dwellings if ever they could not bring good ambience to the guests. In response I received a loving ray of sunshine. A New Year's family 2 years in a row felt the female's robe brush against them and the boy touching the foot of the youngster staying there. He woke mom up to ask if she the boy who did that! More recently I had guests who are metaphysical spiritists and they had great feelings and experiences with them! May there ever be friendly exchanges and even protections from those whose "lives" intertwine at 50 Zane Gray Lane in Sedona!"
