Destination guide

Find comfort with a Cottonwood cabin accommodation

Cottonwood will put you in one of the most comfortable climates in all of Arizona. It’s located well above the desert regions yet still below the snowy peaks, so temperate weather is prevalent all year long. When you rent one of the cabins in Sedona, you’ll find yourself with convenient access to the outdoors and a vibrant community offering scenic hikes and high-end restaurants in equal measure. For a truly refined experience, you can visit one of the local wineries for a tasting and tour of a sprawling vineyard.

Things to do

From historic mines to the freshest wines

Immerse yourself in Cottonwood's mining history on Main Street in picturesque Old Town, or head to the Gold King Mine and Ghost Town in nearby Jerome. The Verde Canyon Railroad offers restored vintage train rides. Preserved cliff dwellings of the Sinagua tribes can be found at Tuzigoot National Monument and Montezuma Castle. A Cottonwood vacation rental also puts you on the vibrant Verde Valley Wine Trail (be sure to bring your designated driver so you can fully indulge). You'll find plenty of tasting rooms right in town if you need a break between your historical tours.


Nature is fully alive at Dead Horse Ranch

The heart of outdoor activity in Cottonwood is Dead Horse Ranch State Park. Set on the Verde River, the magnificent park offers everything from hiking, fishing, and camping, to ecotours and birdwatching festivals. For more birdwatching, head to Red Rock State Park, where you'll also find wildlife walking trails and some great picnic spots. Mingus Mountain offer hang gliding and mountain biking. There's also plenty of golf, plus performances at the Old Town Center for the Arts. End your day with some unforgettable cowboy dinner theater and Western-themed shopping at Blazin' M Ranch.


Pack the sunscreen for those blazing Arizona rays

There's no way around it – summers in Cottonwood are hot, hot, hot. Pack light if you're heading to your Cottonwood vacation rental between June and August, when high temperature are routinely in the upper 90s, if not the triple digits. Things are much milder in the winter months of December to February, when highs are pleasantly in the 50s and 60s (but can dip below freezing at night, so bring a warm coat). As for that umbrella, it's relatively dry year round, with little rain and even less snow.

Natural features

There's more than just green in the Verde Valley

Verde may mean green in Spanish, but the towering red rocks that surround Cottonwood and the neighboring towns are anything but. The reasoning behind the name starts to become clear when you get to the Verde River Greenway, a lush oasis that's home to verdant trees and a large migratory bird population. Several creeks feed the river as it winds its way through picturesque canyons and mountainous terrain. Further afield, the Black Hills and Mingus Mountain dominate the landscape, chock-full of hiking trails that offer spectacular views.
