About the property

Beautiful 2 bedroom stand alone cottage

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...

About Mark and Laurie Temple


My name is Mark and my wife, Laurie and I bought this property in February 2015 and just recently starting managing it ourselves. I grew up in Prescott just down the street on Mt Vernon Ave. and used to deliver newspapers on this street! Laurie and I have been raising our 2 boys in this beautiful little town and now have one at U of A and one at Prescott High School. Even though I graduated from ASU and the schools are big rivals here in Arizona I really enjoy rooting for my son's school too!

We love Prescott and since we have been here for so many years we have insider info of the area and can help with most everything. The people here are wonderful and there is always something happening.

I know you will enjoy your stay here and the many things Prescott has to offer!

Mark and Laurie Temple purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Mark and Laurie Temple chose Prescott

We purchased this property not just because it is located on the most historical street in Prescott but also because I grew up just down the block and have many fond memories of this area. Delivering newspapers, sledding and playing football in the street with the neighborhood kids. Everything that reminds me of a small town experience.

What makes this cottage unique

What I love about this property is that it reminds me of a simpler time. Quiet, tree lined street where you can take a walk in the cool early mornings and evenings. A nice quiet area in the back that can be enjoyed by guests and their pups. Being close to the downtown area with lots of things to do and then being able to return back "home" to relax.

Immaculate, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Loved everything about this property, and Prescott in general. Great, quiet location, walking distance to Whiskey Row, beautiful hiking close by, and the street was insanely decorated for Halloween! Mark and Laurie were great hosts, and there wasn’t a single thing we were left wanting. Our favourite place for lunch, dinner, drinks was Bistro St Michael.
