Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Prescott - Little Yellow Cottage

Two Bedroom, One Bath Cottage Within Walking Distance To Downtown Prescott.

Our “little yellow cottage” is a few blocks from the historic Prescott town square with its many events, shops and restaurants. It is a beautifully furnished craftsman style cottage that was originally built in 1935 and completely restored in 2009.

A wide front porch with comfortable wicker chairs looks out on the cottage garden, which provides a happy welcome to our bright and airy two bedroom, one bath abode. The back yard is landscaped to enhance the natural setting of Ponderosa pine trees and the huge out-cropping of granite boulders.

The dining and living rooms are complete with a gas fireplace, cable television and DVD. Wireless internet is provided. The quaint kitchen contains a gas stove and oven, microwave, refrigerator and laundry facilities. The cottage sleeps 4 comfortably (one queen and one full size bed) outfitted with bedding and comforters.

The open floor plan is perfect for a couple's get-a-way, business retreat, family vacations and entertaining.

Prescott is the perfect vacation get-away. There is so much to do in Prescott. Just walking around town is a great way to spend the day. In the evening you can do country Western dancing or contemporary dancing at one of the 'Saloons? on Whisky Row or take in live theatre.

Prescott hosts annual events. Just a few are: the April Whiskey Row off-road mountain bike races (epic ride); May has the Highland Games; June includes Frontier Days and the Prescott rodeo, 4th of July celebration and parade and Prescott's Indian art market; August has the Prescott film festival and cowboy poets gathering at Sharlot Hall; Even December in Prescott boasts of the Acker holiday music festival and Christmas courthouse lighting and parade to name a few. All that plus sports with 3 lakes close by and art and special events monthly downtown. Also, we are proud to include Sharlot Hall, the historic Elk's Theatre and Yavapai College, which offer special events during the year.

Contact: Harry or Diane for rental information. We would love to have you stay in our exceptionally charming cottage to take a break from everyday life and to see what Prescott has to offer! FYI-we will have a second property in Prescott that will be available by Mid November 2014 VRBO # 627402. If the Yellow Cottage is already booked for your travel dates, take a look at our new property!

About Harry Brown

We have always loved Prescott and when I had an opportunity to accept a job up here in 2008, it gave us a chance to look for a place that complemented our previous trips abroad.

Harry Brown purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Harry Brown chose Prescott

We fell in love with our Little Yellow Cottage because of the craftsman touches and the natural setting of pine trees and large out cropping of boulders, yet a short walk to all the happenings at the town square. If the Yellow Cottage is already booked for your travel dates, take a look at VRBO #627402 for your travel needs.

What makes this cottage unique

This home is walking distance to quaint shops, restaurants, and museums where history and charm abound! Start your morning with a hike up Thumb Butt or kayak on Watson and Goldwater Lakes; then stop for coffee and a morning treat at one of Prescott's charming coffee bars. Spend the day perusing antique shops, the farmers market at Yavapai College and enjoy the regular entertainment and fairs at the Town Square. Or simply spend a leisurely day sitting on our spacious front porch sipping lemonade with a light snack while reading your favorite book. There's something for everyone to enjoy.

  • 5 out of 5
Highly recommended! Cute, quiet, comfortable, clean, and fully stocked! This is an historical home located 1/2 mile (great walk!) from Whiskey Row. We were greeted with a 'welcome' sign and very nice bottle of wine. The kitchen is stocked with absolutely everything you could want (and items are cataloged in the house manual so you can easily find what you need), including a pantry with seasonings! The gas fireplace was so warm and inviting and really warmed up the front rooms. There are antiques throughout the home but modern kitchen appliances. There are several sitting areas on the property for relaxing, happy hour or breakfast. We will absolutely recommend this home to our friends and family.

Perfect little getaway!

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our 4 day stay at the Little Yellow Cottage in Prescott. It was adorable, clean, cozy and well stocked with all the amenities you could possibly need (and more!). The cottage was beautifully decorated. The welcome bottle of wine and fresh flowers added a wonderful touch to our 4 days of relaxation. We spent much of our time sitting out on the front porch reading, enjoying the weather and just really relaxing. We enjoyed breakfast on the patio every morning as well. The neighborhood was very quiet and a wonderful place to take morning walks (despite the construction on nearby Park St). Our only recommendations that could make for a nicer stay would be to have better water pressure and hotter water in the shower and to have a bit more comfortable seating in the living rm. Overall, we were extremely pleased with our stay and would highly recommend it. We hope to be able to go back and stay there again sometime. The cottage really is extremely nice!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the glowing review. We do appreciate you taking the time to write. We are sorry about the water pressure and the temperature of the hot water. If you had mentioned it to us, Harry would have increased the temperature for the cooler weather. Normally in the summer the water temperature is way too hot, so we lower it for that season. We have since heated up the hot water and improved the water pressure. Thank you for pointing those needs out to us. We are just sorry your stay didn't include those fixes, but thank you again for such a positive review.

Great Little Cottage!!

  • 4 out of 5
My wife and I stayed at this wonderful Cottage for a week with our little dog. The Cottage is so beautiful and fully stocked with most anything you may need. The furnishings were beautiful and very close to Downtown,which we went to every night to listen to music at the Courthouse Square. Sitting on the front porch was so relaxing in the quiet surroundings and you can tell the owners have paid attention to every detail. Once we arrived we were greeted with cookies and flowers which made us feel at home. The owners are wonderful people and we met Harry who was so nice,as he wanted to make sure everything was good for us. We would love to come back again,perhaps in the Winter. The only thing that I can suggest is to mention in the ad, that the fireplace is only on for about 7 months a year,which is understandable. We got caught in a huge rain storm and were soaked and chilled, and it would have been so nice to warm up in front of the fireplace with have some hot chocolate. We did have the Hot Chocolate though. :) I actually would give 4 1/2 stars if possible. I do recommend staying at this Historic Cottage.. Thanks for a wonderful stay. Michael,MaryEllen and our little Annie..

Owner's Response: Michael,

Thank you for your great review of the cottage. We do strive to exceed our guests expectations of their stay at the cottage. We were sorry to hear your comment about the fireplace. The reason we turn off the pilot to the gas fireplace in the summer is because it heats up the house to the point where the fireplace's recirculating fan comes on which heats the house up even more, making the cottage too hot in the summer without using the air conditioner. When it is 80+ degrees outside during the day it just never seemed to be necessary to keep the pilot on.

The Cardilino family, Santa Barbara

  • 5 out of 5
I delayed writing this review because I am selfish and want to keep this gem of a rental to myself! Sorry about that.....
But I did feel that I had to write after reading the earlier extreme negative review of someone who stayed here prior to our visit. We found this rental to be SO lovely.
First of all, it is a cozy home that reminds us so much of our home in Santa Barbara. From the minute we walked through the front door, we felt at home. I can honestly say that I do not have one negative thing to say about it. The location is perfect. You can walk to the square. They let you bring your dog, who will love the walks in the neighborhood. The house is stocked with anything and everything. The neighborhood is one of the older neighborhoods of Prescott and is full of lovely homes and it is so quiet. We stayed for almost a week and never had any problems.
I just tried to book a stay for later this Summer, but the dates were full so we will be staying in another rental. But we will definitely stay here again! In fact, this would be our first choice.....always!
There is no way a car got keyed at this house....maybe on the square if you parked inappropriately!
This house is a gem. You will feel as though you LIVE in Prescott. I have stayed in many hotels and places in Prescott as we have relatives there and this is the first time we have felt that!
This house is the best and we look forward to staying here again (that is if we can get in!).

The Little Yellow Cottage

  • 5 out of 5
Our stay at the ‘Little Yellow Cottage’ in Prescott was wonderful! We were looking for a relaxing, getaway weekend and the property far exceeded our expectations. The photos do not do the property justice. Prior to our arrival, I spoke with the owner to ask what we needed to bring. He assured me, “you don’t need to bring anything. We have it.” Although I was skeptical with this comment, he was not overstating the situation. The cottage was fully stocked: nice dishes, a variety pots and pans, numerous cooking spices, paper plates and napkins, movies, books, games, magazines, and plenty of towels and other linens. The wine and homemade cookies were a lovely welcome. The porch was delightful. The house was very clean. The beds were comfortable. The overall experience was phenomenal! In fact, of the numerous VTBO properties we have rented, this is perhaps the best! Thank you for sharing this special property with us.

Potentially Unsafe

  • 1 out of 5
We stayed at this residence Thanksgiving week '13. I deem this residence as unsafe. There is a public street that is parallel to the driveway that a few cars and random persons used while we were there. Cars sped up and down the street all day long. The street this house is on is apparently a cut through from Park to Coronado, so is frequently used. Our car was keyed down the driver side while parked in the driveway. The owner came out and was apologetic. of course the VRBO insurance doesn't cover any damage of this nature. House was marginal. We found it dirty ... white hairs all over the floors maybe from a dog, coffee cups still had coffee stains around rim and the floor mats in the bathroom were very very dirty & appeared to be old. The upside is the fireplace, nice kitchen & the location. We walked into town on several occasions.

Owner's Response: We feel bad that your car was keyed during your stay at our cottage during Thanksgiving last year. Unfortunately, a situation like that could happen anytime, anywhere. When we were told of the incident we apologized and notified VRBO and our homeowner’s insurance company. We were told neither policy has a provision for keying a car.

Our cottage is located on a quiet side street in Prescott. We lived in that cottage for 5 years and had no issue with speeding cars going down the street let alone many cars using our street.

Our cleaning ladies do a fantastic job of cleaning and get praise from our guests on how clean and well maintained the cottage is. Our furnishings are very good quality and high end. We consistently get complements on our lovely cottage from our guests. If we had known the cottage had cleaning issues we would have been glad to have it cleaned again for you at the time of your stay 6 months ago.
