The Cottage at El Adobe

This Cottage is part of the original Adobe Apartments complex which is on the City of Scottsdale Historic Register. This is one of 6 building on the property made of adobe mud bricks. This Cottage is a one bedroom, one bathroom free standing unit and is located in the back of the “U” shape of building and faces the courtyard garden, pergola, 1st Avenue and Indian School Road.

This Cottage is located in the middle of Old Town Scottsdale Art District and is only 7 blocks from Fashion Square and The Waterfront District. Only a ½ of a block to Main Street and the Thursday night Art Walk. One block to the Western Museum and the free city operated trolley shuttle. Scottsdale Center for the Preforming Arts is 6 blocks away. This Cottage has a single on premise parking place, however a car is not necessary to enjoy the destinations in Old Town all within walking distance. Easy to get to the Cottage by a shuttle from Sky Harbor Airport about 10 miles away

The Cottage has been totally remodeled and is fully furnished. Heating and air condition, the bedroom has two twin beds.

This Cottage shares a beautiful view of the center courtyard desert landscaping garden and pergola with the 3 commercial tenants on the premise.

An ideal day would start with walking across the street for breakfast or brunch at Arcadia Farm or Panera Bread, or Starbucks, then a stroll down Main Street to admire the multitude of galleries including the Western artists, fine jewelry, painting and sculpting. For lunch the famous Thai restaurant Malee’s On Main, Grimaldy’s Pizzeria, or Frank and Lupe Mexican restaurant, and other eateries just around the corner.

About Jimmy Eriksson

Grew up in Minnesota, but just too cold most of the year up there. I moved here with my business in 1983 and love the sun.

Scottsdale is a great place and the Cottage at the Adobe is a wonderful place to stay in Old Town

very quite and secure.

Jimmy Eriksson purchased this cottage in 1996

Why Jimmy Eriksson chose Downtown

The 6 building are made of Adobe mud that were build in the late 1940's or early 1950's. They heat and cool easily. Total restoration on all 6 buildings over the last 18 years and now they are in excellent shape.

What makes this cottage unique

Located in the heart of Old Town, can walk to everything. Lots of visitors here looking at our courtyard garden everyday.

This little place was paradise

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about Jimi's place. Location was perfect. Right in Old Town. Quiet, peaceful, clean and had everything we needed. We were there during a very busy weekend (St. Patrick's Day weekend) so parking was tough but we had a private parking spot. Great recommendation from Jimi for breakfast (Arcadia Farms) right down the street. Can't wait to come back.

Thanks

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Location is perfect. You can leave the car and walk all over. The cottage is completely outfitted with many amenities you won’t get in a hotel. We reserved in June to be sure we would have it in February. If you want to stay in Scottsdale, this is the place to stay.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

I have done stayed in many different vacation rentals over the past few years. The Adobe Cottage was the cleanest, most organized and well maintained of any. Jimmy was wonderful and answered any questions we had about the area. And the cottage is within easy walking distance of everything in Old Town! This place is a winner!

The weather was perfect. The shops and restaurants were within easy walking distance. Our cottage was completely outfitted for our needs and we enjoyed the beautiful private garden. We loved every bit of our week’s stay in Old Scottsdale.

Excellent cottage away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at the cottage was a fabulous experience. It is well equipped; beds very comfortable, excellent linens, all the home spotlessly kept. Location is perfect for both Old Town and Shops off 5th Ave walkability. Jimmy and his wife are hosts that set the perfect standard!
