The SpaceThe home is fully equipped. Just bring your groceries, settle in, and enjoy a truly special visit to this lovely part of the world. Included in your stay is a complimentary wine-tasting for two (with souvenir wine-glasses) at one of our local wineries.
This spacious, magical vacation home sits high above scenic, historic Page Springs, below ancient Sinagua Indian ruins, looking down on the meandering Oak Creek Valley with its abundant, green cottonwood forest.
The 2.5 acre property is bordered by Coconino National Forest to the south and to the west.They say Page Springs today is "like Sedona used to be, 20 years ago." Sedona is often noisy, traffic-infested and anything but peaceful. But, drive a mere 8 miles and you are in a high-desert paradise, the heart of Sedona's famous wine country, with easy access to Sedona, Oak Creek Canyon, Jerome (the famous ghost town - think Halloween 365 days a year!) Tuzigoot National Monument, Old Town Cottonwood, prehistoric petroglyph sites, and numerous other natural and historic wonders.
There is a comfortable fold-out couch in the living room, that sleeps two adults for an additional charge. We are sorry but we can not accommodate pets, or children under the age of 10. We provide complimentary wireless internet and long-distance telephone service within the 50 states. Cell phone service can be a little sketchy, especially if you have coverage other than Verizon.
You can learn much more about us, the home, the amenities, and the surrounding area by exploring the website of our former B&B. Search for "Page Springs Bed and Breakfast." You will be staying at the "Upper House." Please do not try to make a reservation on the B&B website. We are no longer in the B&B business, and are now booking strictly through AirBnB. Guest AccessYou will have the entire house to yourselves. Connie and Andrew are writers, public speakers and filmmakers who travel most of the time. The only off-limits areas are the RV, the garage and the locked outdoor storage area in the back. Interaction with GuestsIf we are traveling, you will be greeted by our property manager, Ingrid. She will give you the tour of the house and the property, make sure you have all the information you need, and then leave you in peace and privacy to enjoy your stay. Ingrid lives close by, and is available in the event of any questions or emergencies.
The NeighborhoodPage Springs is Sedona's best-kept secret. It's convenient to everything, yet has a peaceful, rustic feeling that you will not find in Sedona itself. We are just 1.5 miles from three popular wineries. From the house, you can hike down to the bridge over Oak Creek, and find yourself sitting on the banks an idyllic river, before stopping in at the famous Page Springs Restaurant [now Up The Creek Grill & Bar] for a meal or a libation. For the more adventurous, you can hike into Coconino National Forest directly adjoining our property, climb up to the mesa above, and marvel at the 50-odd Sinagua Indian ruins up there. The view from the mesa is absolutely stunning!
Page Springs Road has recently received a national scenic/historic designation. It leads from Route 89A past our home, directly to the famous local wineries, including Page Springs Cellars, Oak Creek Winery and Javelina Leap Winery, 1.5 miles down the road.
Sedona, with its world-famous Red Rocks and other delights, is an easy ten-minute drive to the north, while picturesque Old Town Cottonwood is ten minutes to the south. If you have never visited a ghost town in the Old West, Jerome, with its 5-star restaurant "The Asylum," lies just 25-minutes to the south of Page Springs. You can even take a day trip to the Grand Canyon or the Hopi Indian reservation. We are truly at the center of a "spiral of wonders!"
Getting AroundWe recommend that you have your own transportation, although taxi and airport shuttle services are available. On the other hand, you can easily hike or bicycle down to the Bubbling Ponds birding area, Oak Creek bridge, and the famous Page Springs Restaurant (now re-named "Up The Creek Grill & Bar.") The wineries begin half a mile beyond the bridge, after the Fish Hatcheries.
