Unlike Cornville, the name of which was a mistaken interpretation of a pioneering settler’s name, Cottonwood earned its name honestly. Known as the “Biggest Little Town in Arizona,” its name was attributed to the large forest of cottonwood trees that grew alongside the Verde River. Located just 19 miles south of Sedona and offering a selection of local wineries, of course you are also going to find some of our Sedona.Org vacation escapes nestled away in town! These small towns that can found along Highway 89A offer a quiet respite to all who visit, and although you won’t find sleek nightclubs or any version of a sophisticated city nightlife, you will find skies filled with stars, peaceful adventures that comfort your soul, and a gentle blend of comfort and modern conveniences, simply because you chose Sedona.Org for your Arizona abode. This guide to our Cottonwood vacation rentals is designed to show travelers how the best vacations can come from the smallest towns!

The town of Cottonwood is a farming town with crops that include fruits, veggies, and pecans, but today, its sleepy peace is being rediscovered as an integral part of the Verde Valley Wine Trail. Offering a variety of wineries, including our personal favorite, the Pillsbury Wine Company Tasting Room, the homes we offer here tend to emit a farmhouse vibe. Large and beautiful, our Cottonwood vacation rentals grow from the landscape, offering a permanence and sense of home that welcomes everyone who visits. Step inside spaces that are filled with warmth and light, following the paths created by high-end flooring choices, maybe tile, maybe wood, but always clean and soft beneath bare feet.
The living rooms in Cottonwood definitely reflect the farming community, offering plush sofas soft enough for taking impromptu naps, fireplaces or wood-burning stoves. Winter nights can get chilly in the Arizona high country, and the flames will be greatly appreciated when the temperatures dip. Shelves lined with books, games, DVDs, and occasional pieces of art probably purchased in the shops of nearby Sedona add a comfortable style to the space, and windows that stretch from the floor to the roof help keep the beauty of the desert landscape close at hand. The red rocks that have made Sedona famous can also be found here, with the added advantage of fewer crowds to hinder your enjoyment of their beauty and magic, and some may be visible from the windows of your magical escape. Pluck a book off the shelf and read until the natural life fades, then turn on the task lamp that is nearby and read some more, because as every bookworm knows, there is never enough time to read in real life, but on vacation all you have is time. State-of-the-art televisions may be smart ones, offering your favorite streaming shows, or they may be cable access, but all will be modern and offer large screens with crystal-clear pictures that will make you feel like you have courtside seats to the big Suns game! (We love our sports, and although Cottonwood isn’t large enough to have its own professional teams, we, like every Arizonan, claim the Phoenix Suns as our home team!)
The dining rooms of our Cottonwood AZ vacation rentals are much like the ones you enjoy in your own home. Comfortable areas, surrounded by windows, these are the spots where we play games, devour meals, and on lazy mornings, sip coffee while being mesmerized by the views outside the window! Located within steps of our fully equipped kitchens, you won’t have to worry about the food growing cold when you carry your freshly prepared dinner to the table, and because our kitchens are gourmet escapes, you may end up cooking more than you thought you might on vacation! High-end appliances, countertops of stone or tile, and windows that look out onto the desert landscape will bring a gourmet chef’s experience to the simplest of meals, but if you choose to just keep the coffee brewing (coffee makers are provided) and the wine and beer chilled (some may offer wine chillers to be used for specifically that purpose), you will receive no judgment from us! Our job at Sedona.Org is to make your Arizona adventures as comfortable and relaxing as possible, and there is a plethora of tasty restaurants in the area that will keep you and your traveling family well fed and happy!
Throughout our Cottonwood havens, guests will enjoy the feel of the Southwest represented in their décor and design styles. Colorful art on the walls and on shelves may have been purchased at the shops of Sedona, tile floors may be Saltillo, a terra cotta tile handmade in Mexico, and the colors chosen for walls, fabrics, and furnishings may be from the same color schemes that decorate our natural landscape. Reds, tans, even the greens of our state cactus, the saguaro, provide a neutral and soothing décor.
It Takes Your Breath Away
The serenity continues when you step outside onto decks, patios, and balconies that provide more places to relax and revel in the desert landscape, often providing barbecue grills from which the most delicious scents will waft through the air and patio tables where al fresco meals will taste even better thanks to the delicious views! A variety of seating areas are meant for watching sunsets, enjoying conversations with your favorite traveling companions, and for letting the serenity of the Cottonwood desert to sink into your soul, providing a peace that you just won’t find anywhere else on earth! Some of our properties are pet friendly, meaning no family member will be left behind, and as your sweet fur child frolics in fenced-in yards, you will know that choosing Sedona.Org was the best decision you have made this year.
As you spend your days visiting wineries, exploring red rocks, and shopping in the boutiques that are a natural part of the Verde Valley landscape, in the back of your mind, you will be thinking about our beds. Soft, plush, and topped with fine linens, the moments you spend there may not be filled with memories, but that is only because you will be sleeping too deeply to remember much of anything! Some rooms will offer Smart or cable access televisions to help you ease into sleep each night, others may offer padded headboards that are comfortable to lean back against while reading “just one more chapter,” and others will provide desk areas where, if you absolutely have to attend a meeting or two during your stay, you will be comfortable and participating with very few glitches; high-speed internet helps ensure smooth going! You’ll find bathrooms with modern fixtures and spa-like ambiences and laundry rooms or closets which offer the solution to packing light; just throw a load or two into the wash and save room in your baggage for souvenirs from Cottonwood and Sedona.
