Creek Front Cottage in Oak Creek Canyon!

Bedrooms 2
Space 1,250 sq. ft.
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

2 bedrooms, 1-3/4 bathrooms, sleeps 4

Our home is located right on the water in Oak Creek Canyon and is just 4 miles from up town Sedona! The creek is stocked with Rainbow Trout if fishing is your thing....and the deck has a grill and eating area if you want to grill it! Not into cooking, a great deli/store that also serves breakfast is located right across the road. Enjoy long strolls on the forest service road that is right outside your door. Hiking of all levels is abundant in the canyon and swimming/tubing in the creek during warmer months is a wonderful way to spend your day! And, Slide Rock is just a few miles down the road. If shopping, golfing, gambling, dining, four-wheeling or sight-seeing is your thing, you are only minutes away to everything Sedona and Northern Arizona has to offer including the wild animal park, Bearizona and Indian ruins. And, if you've never been or want to go again, we are close enough for a day-trip to the Grand Canyon too!

About Barbara Pancrazio

We, Angelo and Barbara, are partners in life (married 30 years) as well as partners in business. At one time, we owned and operated a Food Service Brokerage business in the Phoenix area. But 'wised up' and moved to beautiful Sedona where we now are licensed realtors with Coldwell Banker First Affiliate.

Barbara Pancrazio purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Barbara Pancrazio chose Sedona

Having lived up high on a hill in the canyon many years, we longed to live on the creek. So in 2004, we found what we consider to be the best spot in Arizona and loving it ever since, our Cottage on Oak Creek! Barbara's parents developed and opened Rainbow Trout Farm in the early 1960's which is located just south of the cottage so this is home! Angelo was a 'city boy', originally from Chicago, but now you can't get him out of his jeans and the country lifestyle.

What makes this cottage unique

Mother Nature provides many pleasures for us to enjoy year around in Oak Creek Canyon. The snow fall in the winter is just enough to satisfy our need to see it fall and then it melts within a day or so. We must admit, however, that when spring comes, we can hardly wait to have cocktail hour on the back deck overlooking Oak Creek. Wild life is everywhere and we have been privileged to see eagles, blue heron flying overhead, deer on the back road and even a skunk swimming in the creek. And yet, a great deli is just across the street and uptown Sedona is only 4 miles away! What's not to love!

Beautiful and cozy cottage on Oak Creek

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in the cottage on Oak Creek. We have stayed in many cottages and resorts in Oak Creek through the years and this one is a firm favorite. The large deck over the creek is the most awesome feature and we spent most of our time there. The house inside is luxurious and comfortable. Nice on the eyes but cozy to relax in. Great appliances and has everything you need, from a smart tv, dvd player, satellite, to spices, dishes, utensils, towels, detergents, books, cd's, board games etc. Just bring clothing and food. The cabin is very clean and the beds are super comfortable to sleep in. It has a sense of privacy and the sound of the river ads to the tranquility. It is close to all major Sedona attractions, yet far enough from the maddening crowd. A big plus for us was that the rental is pet friendly. The owner, Barbara, is very professional and manages the rental very well. We also appreciated free use of the red rock pass. Thank you Barbara, we travel often and would love to book again in future.

Good kitchen, wonderful deck over creek and good location for Sedona and hiking

  • 4 of 5

Pet friendly, including fenced in area and dog door. Well equipped kitchen for cooking. Comfortable master bed and LOVED the deck. Found the location good for access to Sedona area hikes as well as West Fork and up to Flagstaff and the Grand Canyon. We loved 'being part of' the two weddings that took place at the event area. Indian Gardens cafe across the road is an added bonus with great breakfasts and coffee. Barbara was attentive and responsive to any queries or concerns. Great week for us and our 16 month old dog.

Beautiful location but.....

  • 2 of 5

This house sits in a very beautiful location but it's off a very busy highway. The house itself needs a good cleaning. You are charged a cleaning charge and you arrive to a house that has spider webs, dirty walls, dirty carpet, a deck that was not cleaned and a yard that needed mowing. So I would suggest to the owner to find a new cleaning service.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your candid review although not what I want to hear! The cleaning charge of $125 goes directly to the cleaning service and it appears the job is not being done!! I changed to another company for cleaning today and will follow up with them to make certain the house is up to high standards! Thank you, Barbara

Right on the Creek, lovely house in gated community. great for a small family

  • 5 of 5

The home is lovely and in a lush beautiful area of Oak Creek Canyon. great back deck to watch the creek from, beautiful kitchen and living room with a huge TV if nature isnt your thing. I would highly recommend this location. The only downside was that it is across from an even center, and they were having a wedding the first night. I thought it was lovely and when Bidi Bidi Bom Bom by Selena was played I was dancing around the deck like I was in the wedding. It wrapped up around 9:30, which was nice. I thought it was fine, but if you are not a person who wants to listen to the DJ call for the Chicken Dance loud and clear, you may want to check your dates. All over a beautiful residence in a lovely neighborhood and the creek was magical.

Beautiful setting, peaceful, serene and close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

The house is well equipped, walking trails directly outside your front door in mature trees, and Serenity PLUS~ CREEKSIDE directly off the back deck! Location is excellent, close enough to downtown and all you need, while maintaining a private, secluded feel at the cottage.

I would absolutely recommend this cottage, just for the property setting alone!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Barbara (owner) and Shelia (Property manager) were both

extremely helpful and available if needed.

Car: necessary

Oak Creek Canyon , where our home is located, is just outside of Sedona which has been named as one of the most beautiful places on Earth! Outdoor activities include Slide Rock which is a natural water rock 'slide' created through eons of years by the running waters of Oak Creek as well as a plethora of hiking trails. Sedona features many restaurants, shopping, outdoor activities and natural red rock scenery. This area is known for the Native American wares available as well as its Fine Arts. A short drive will take you to Jerome, a ghost town and historic copper mining community, that is now a fun-filled sight-seeing destination. So much to do!
