Blue Moon Cottage in Jerome, Arizona.

Bedrooms 1
Space 800 sq. ft.
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

1 bedroom cottage (sleeps 2) and 1 bathroom with tub/shower; complimentary WiFi.

The Blue Moon Cottage is one of the remaining historical homes built during Jerome’s mining hay day. The cottage was built in the early 1900s by the mining company for use by its employees.

Leigh Hay-Martin purchased the cottage in the early 1980s. She fondly named her beloved cottage “Blue Moon”. Coincidently, Leigh signed the closing documents for its purchase when there was a second full moon [also known as a “blue moon”].

The Blue Moon Cottage is situated on a quiet side street and overlooks the old, original cemetery. Hundreds of people lost their lives when influenza ravaged the town in the early 1800s and filled the cemetery.

Yellow Lady Banks roses cover the trellis that welcomes you to the Blue Moon Cottage. The cottage was renovated approximately 15 years ago but retains the original old-world charm of Jerome. Complimentary WiFi is available.

The Blue Moon Cottage is host to many collections that are near and dear to Leigh’s heart. These include textiles, pottery, china, paintings, and vintage furniture and collectibles.

As a lover of all things fabric, Leigh's has a passion for textiles. She is a master quilter and designer. Three of her quilts adorn the living room, hallway, and bathroom.

Leigh Hay-Martin has owned Designs On You, an upscale retail clothing store in Jerome, Arizona, for 30 years.

Why Leigh Hay-Martin chose Capital Territory & High Country

The Blue Moon Cottage offers a unique and tranquil hide-away in one of Jerome’s original homes. It offers unobstructed views to the Verde Valley from the house and private deck area. Easy access and plenty of parking. Situated one-half mile away from the center of Jerome but within easy walking distance to the Old Jerome High School which was converted into art studios in the early 1980s. Unlike other B&B’s where common areas are shared, the Blue Moon offers a private rental setting. Complimentary WiFi is offered.

What makes this cottage unique

The Blue Moon provides its guests with the best of everything that Jerome has to offer.

The cottage has many of the amenities of an upscale hotel, but in a cozy and intimate setting.

The Blue Moon is located in the lower part of the town of Jerome, across the street from the old high school (now private art studios) and overlooks the original, historic cemetery.

The cottage is about a one-half mile to town. It is an uphill walk to the center of town but it is all downhill going home!

The Blue Moon cottage is 800 square feet has a kitchen, dining room, living room, bedroom, bathroom and private deck.

The bathroom has the original claw foot bathtub with a separate shower, and is situated next to the bedroom.

The kitchen has a full-sized refrigerator, coffee maker, microwave, and a toaster-oven. The antique stove is for decorative purposes only.

The bedroom has a California king bed with lots of yummy homemade quilts and pillows!

The deck is adjacent to the kitchen and bedroom, and the views are outstanding. It is a wonderful place to dine and to enjoy a glass of wine or a hot cup of coffee or tea.

The refrigerator is stocked with English muffins, cream cheese, homemade jam, butter, orange juice, milk, half and half and assorted breakfast cereals.

Fresh coffee beans, a coffee grinder, coffee pot and an electric kettle with assorted teas are all part of the package to help you enjoy quiet mornings on the deck at the Blue Moon.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The Blue Moon Cottage is an absolutely fabulous place to stay. It way exceeded my expectations in every way. The scenery is absolutely gorgeous, pretty much from every room of the house. The other great thing is that it is within walking distance to all the great things Jerome has to offer.

I highly recommend these accommodations to anyone who is looking for a unique experience to go along with this very unique town.

The best place for a weekend get away

  • 5 of 5

The Blue Moon Cottage in Jerome is a wonderful place to get away when you are away in Jerome! It is away from the bustle of the busy weekend traffic in town, but still within a nice walking distance. The views are some of the best I've had the pleasure of taking in around town. The cottage and it's appointments are top notch... comfort included. Leigh is the best to work with for making arrangements and she will give you the best information about your visit to the area. She is what makes the cottage so special!

Amazing Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The Blue Moon is one of my favorite spots to go to. Secluded, yet close enough to walk into town. The scenery is amazing. Leigh has made her cottage feel like home. From the decorations to the refrigerator stocked with juice, muffins and fresh jellies, it is all perfect. A giant tub for soaking. A deck for enjoying your morning coffee while watching the sunrise. If you are looking for a romantic getaway, or just some time to reflect on life, this is the place to go. This was our second stay at the Blue Moon and hopefully not the last. I can't thank Leigh enough for opening her home to us.

Cute, Eclectic, Romantic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The place was bigger then expected, friendly staff and million dollar views. No oven or stovetop to cook with, and I'd suggest bringing bottled water. 'Romantic Getaway' is the best way to describe this great VRBO. Jerome is a great place to explore as well. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat.

Super awesome and very relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved it! We were close enough to the shops in Jerome to go exploring, but far enough for it to be quiet at night. Leigh is an excellent hostess. We've rented properties before and never had someone do so much to make us feel welcome. We'll totally be back.

Cozy little cottage with a grand view!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our mini getaway over the Labor Day holiday at the Blue Moon Cottage. I am so glad we chose to stay there (even booked an extra night). Leigh, the owner, was very accommodating and super friendly. We ended up getting there much later than planned due to an unforeseen traffic delay. Leigh was so happy when we arrived safely. She greeted us with a warm welcome and a smile. She quickly ran through a list of need to know items and left us to enjoy the rest of our weekend in her cozy little cottage.
