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

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.

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!
