Overview

About the property

2 bedrooms/1 bath sleeps 6. Retreat in privacy and comfort on 1/3 acre with VIEW

This cabin can sleep six: one bedroom with NEW firm mattress with European top queen bed, a carpeted loft with queen bed and stair access, and a futon (double bed, thick mattress) in great room. It comes with complete kitchen and bath, all linens and towels included, clothes washer and dryer, fireplace, firewood (I supply), as well as barbecue grill and patio set in backyard. Since the end of August 2015 it has been upgraded and remodeled so fantastically that I think you will fall in love with it! New lighting throughout and ceiling fan in the master bedroom; new laundry room with pantry and hot water (formerly the cabin had been in a screened patio so hot water could not be used); new dining room with custom alligator juniper breakfast bar pass through and magical lighting; new sleek refrigerator, 7' leather sofa; shelving and desk custom made of alligator juniper as is the breakfast bar and opening surrounds, new operable windows with views of Cathedral Rock and the native trees and wildlife, and more. The views at this 1/3 acre property are absolutely awesome, and you will also be provided the Grand Annual Red Rock Pass. You can walk to Crescent Moon Ranch Recreation Area to access Oak Creek from the cabin -- Google it for amazing images, esp. in the fall!

At the cabin there are games, c.d. player, books, and great hikes. We also have TV and DVD; hi-speed wireless internet, and free phone service all 50 states. I supply the Grand Annual Red Rock pass for free parking on trailheads and admission to Crescent Moon Recreation Area, the West Fork of Oak Creek (Zane Grey wrote about it in Call of the Canyon)! Check out the books detailing the hiking and biking trails and spend those gorgeous Sedona days in outdoor activities which you will never forget. Here is a piece that I wrote to a guest summer 2016, when asked about the "presence" she and guest who have commented in the guest book were aware of:

"I purchased this cabin in 1998 from the original builder/owner from 1960. He had been superintendent of schools in Glendale, AZ, and his family decided to sell it at the end of his life. He was not ill and did not die in the cabin. In fact, I spoke to my 97.5 year old neighbor who knew him and family, and she said she was sure noone had ever died there. That said, there was no evidence of a presence until 2006 when the cabin had work, esp. roof work, done, leaving it empty for a month. When next I returned, the former minor wind sounds became creaks and animal noises. I had my contractor go through the entire structure and seal or screen any openings.

Personally I have experienced a calming, friendly presence. Most of my guests have enjoyed good feelings and ease with that has been described as possibly a mother and young son. I don't know how to attribute the sometimes nearly alarming cracking sounds, except that she may be forcing out any spriits that would not be well intentioned. It seems their presence is beneficent; when new addition was built last summer and all electrical, etc. was brought up to code, I asked our spirits to please find other dwellings if ever they could not bring light and good ambience to the cabin's guests. In response I received a loving ray of sunshine across my body. And that's my experience.

Guests have been more involved, with New Year's family 2 years in a row knowing that the female allowed her lingerie robe to brush against them and the boy touching the foot of the youngster staying there. He woke mom up to ask if she knew the boy who did that! More recently I had guests who are paranormal/metaphysical spiritists and they had great feelings and experiences with them! May there ever be friendly exchanges and even protections from those whose "lives" intertwine at the cabin at 50 Zane Grey Lane!"

The back of property drops down to a dry creek wash where javelinas, quail and coyote often visit. With rains it becomes a creek which you will thrill to sit on our bank beside. Recently a guest specified three pages in my guest book of all the birds she spotted on the property!! It is a very short walk or drive to Crescent Moon Ranch Park with access to Oak Creek, an area open to hiking and creek access. Need I mention again that the cabin is incredibly scenic (full view of Cathedral Rock) and wooded as well Since the cabin is in a small neighborhood surrounded by National Forest, you can hike or mountain bike from our door.

Guest Comments: Marcia, we came home to find your nice note letting me know that we were back online with e-mail and telephone. Thank you so much for taking care of this problem for us. As you know, it was critical that I be able to communicate to my daughter.

We have enjoyed your cabin so very much along with the beautiful area of Sedona. You also have lovely neighbors. David and I look forward to seeing you on Whidbey Island or here in Sedona. Corinne 4/2009

Guest comments: Barbara and Victor

We're from California (Marina County) so all my 'new age' friends will love that Cathedral Rock was majestically sitting at our front door! ...all that 'vortex' myth and magic.

Most magic for us were our 2 times daily hikes into the Oak Creek area. I have always wanted to walk forever in a creek bed and to then plunge into swimming holes! How glorious to find this dream right here! so much stream…so many swimming holes magically showing up along the walks...so little time! Though we did have a wonderful week, and so many quiet areas of delicious sanctuary where we just sat for hours falling into each moment. Thanks for this great spot!

Our last day -- Gentle wind chimes birdsong scent of Juniper, warm breeze fluttering, yellow and white butterflies

Our little family of quails scooting by (above the table is a rocky mountain juniper - can live up to 1500 years). Don't forget to sit out late with the stars...8/17/08

...and the full moon! Sandy

About Marcia Carey Caldwell

Moving from Puget Sound to the Valley of the Sun (Phoenix/Scottsdale, AZ) in 1989, left my family longing for a cool, wooded getaway. I bought and renovated this cabin (built in 1960), in 1997 and have had hundreds of truly happy guests stay here, leaving us the occasional available weekend! I love sitting by a cool evening fireside with my dachshunds -- you will too!

Marcia Carey Caldwell purchased this cabin in 1998

Why Marcia Carey Caldwell chose Sedona

We adored Sedona and the hikes, the creek, the activities and the year round great climate. We hike right from our background either into a box canyon leading to hills with magnificent views or to Crescent Moon Recreation Area where we can swim in Oak Creek, visit Stupas, photograph some of the best views and ecosystems Sedona offers. We also benefit from the VORTEX energy!

What makes this cabin unique

Direct vortex path from stunning Cathedral Rock and short walking distance to Oak Creek certainly affects energy and consciousness. I love sharing this amongst the other benefits of a genuine cabin on wooded acreage and a view that leaves me breathless. Here is a piece that I wrote to a 2016 guest, when asked about the "presence" she was aware of:

"I purchased this cabin in 1998 from the original builder/owner from 1960. He had been superintendent of schools in Glendale, AZ, and his family decided to sell it at the end of his life. He was not ill and did not die in the cabin. In fact, I spoke to my 97.5 year old neighbor who knew him and family, and she said she was sure noone had ever died there. That said, there was no evidence of a presence until 2006 when the cabin had roof work done, leaving it empty for a month. When next I returned, the former minor wind sounds became creaks etc.so my contractor went through the entire structure screening any openings.

I have experienced a calming, friendly presence. Most of my guests have enjoyed good feelings and ease with that has been described as possibly a mother and young son. I don't know how to attribute the sometimes nearly alarming cracking sounds; she may be forcing out any bad intentioned spriits. It seems their presence is beneficent; when new addition was built last summer and all was brought up to code, I asked our spirits to please find other dwellings if ever they could not bring good ambience to the guests. In response I received a loving ray of sunshine.

Cozy cabin perfect for exploring Red Rock country, great for kids

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely cabin the last week of 2012. It was perfect for our family with 3 kids - 7, 5, 2. The ample outside space allowed the kids to practice their soccer skills every day. The kitchen was well-stocked and the heater worked very well. We loved the breakfast table with the great view of Cathedral Rock. We saw a rather large coyote on our drive back to the cabin one evening. The owner Marcia recommended the Heartline Cafe where we had a delicious four course Christmas dinner. On the last day it snowed and was absolutely gorgeous. Nice selection of reading material and games. Sedona is a lovely town and a great base for exploring the area. We did several nearby hikes and went to the mining town of Jerome for a day. We also visited Walnut Canyon, Tuzigoot and Montezuma castle national monuments all of which have ancient Indian dwellings. The older kids were proud of the Junior Ranger park badges they earned. We never turned on the TV or used the iPad the whole week! We stayed in a few hotels following our stay in Sedona and we really missed the extra space and privacy the cabin provided.

Beautiful view, nicely decorated

  • 3 of 5

We mostly enjoyed our stay at the cabin. The view was really nice and the cabin was nicely decorated. A few things we noticed, however. Due to the changes in temperature, the roof seemed to pop several times. Also, I feel the kitchen wasn't fully stocked. There was no toaster and the can opener didn't work. We ended up buying one. Also, there was no rolling pin. Another thing was the lack of adequate hot water.

Owner's Response: I'm very surprised that you did not contact me regarding the issues you reported in your review, as I always strive to remedy a guest's concerns. I doubt that you will find both a toaster oven and a toaster in a cabin rental, and that applies to a rolling pin. There were two can openers, one of which, the OXO was new with the last year, but had I known you found only a broken one, I would have replaced it during your visit. There are mentions throughout my description and even in the reviews about the curious creaks. I even suggest earplugs might be wise for those who awake with nighttime sounds. That goes for hearing the coyotes who occasionally howl in the hills surrounding the cabin and even in the driveway. Finally, in my "Using Zane Grey Lane" I state that since the water heater is not large, it is best not to take long showers. You are the first guests in the 19 years that I have had the cabin that has complained of running short of hot water. Anyway, I am glad that you liked the cabin and the view so well!

Comfy, Cute, Fully Stocked, Pet friendly!!!

  • 4 of 5

For a summer visit, we give the cabin 4 out of 5 stars. The a/c unit located in the main living area cooled the common areas very well, but didn’t do much to cool the downstairs back bedroom. We visited mid-June and were able to use fans and open windows to keep the bedroom cool at night, however had we visited any later in the year, it would have been too warm for us. Now with that said, we like to sleep in a COLD bedroom, so please take our review as our opinion only. The rest of the house stayed nice and cool, and we truly enjoyed our stay here. I also know Marcia is looking to improve that aspect of the house, so watch for updates!

The views of cathedral rock right out the front window are amazing!!! We stopped to look every time we passed by the window! The house is a single story with a small loft upstairs. The house is fully stocked with all you need to cook, play games, watch TV, or just relax and watch the world go by! We enjoyed our coffee every morning on the porch as we planned our day. The house is pet friendly, but note the yard is not fenced. Our dogs have great recalls and stay close so we were comfortable letting them roam the front area. The house is on a secluded road, so there weren't any issues with traffic.

The house is at the south end of town, outside enough that the stars at night are amazing, but not so far out that you can’t easily get to where you need to be in 5-10 minutes. We were very happy with our stay and if in the area again, we would look to stay again.

The owner Marcia was great to work with, supplying us all the info on the house and Sedona area we needed. She was quick to respond to questions, and while we didn’t need her when we were there, she gave us all the info we needed to reach her had something come up.

If you’re looking for a comfy, nice, clean, don’t want to be at a hotel with everybody else place to stay, then this cabin is definitely worth considering!!!

Great spot with caveats

  • 3 of 5

The Pros: Beautiful location, very peaceful and quiet with amazing views and so close to gorgeous Red Rock Crossing. Just far enough from town to feel peaceful, yet close enough to go in for dinner. Wonderful front porch spot for coffee with a view. The cabin was well stocked with everything we needed. Love the little sleeping loft. The Cons: The decor-- rather cluttered with a yard sale furniture vibe. And the craziest, biggest problem: the whole house/roof creaks very suddenly and very loudly, intermittently all night long. We were awakened many, many times.

Owner's Response: I have had guests comment to me, my housekeeper and my guest book about the creaking sounds. In my description I note that light sleepers should bring earplugs. Sometimes wind or significant temperature changes cause the sounds. Most guests really create some fun tales about the spirit of the cabin -- I myself enjoy the perceived presence and I have not had anyone feel concerned about it, feeling the vortex energy and good essences offered. Honestly, the furniture has offered comfort to my guests for some years, and nearly everything in the cabin was attained new for it. Nothing is shabby or suggestive of garage sale except a few pillows or pans. Not having expensive and precious furnishings allows me to provide a comfortable retreat for famiies with children and pets without fussing over scratches and spots. So a leather sofa can suffer a fair amount of use, and a wicker settee can be easily moved to watch the tv or sit by the fire. It is a cabin in a rural setting and I provide there a good blend of genuine art, very interesting books, comfortable furnishings and all at a very fair price.

Really enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was perfect for us (two empty nesters looking to relax, hike, explore, soak in some sun.) We loved the quiet edge-of-town location, the walk to Oak Creek, and the jaw-dropping scenery on the drive down from the main highway. Everything we needed was there, even a car pass for the hiking trails and other national forest destinations.

A place of inspiration and beauty

  • 5 of 5

Our first visit to and stay in Sedona was at this cabin which, while not large in space, provides so much that fills the human need for rest and renewal. It was wonderful to be out and away from the traffic of Sedona's two major highways, yet close enough to get into town whenever we needed to. The cabin had everything we needed, and when something came up with one of the appliances that needed attention the lady who cares for and cleans the cabin in between guests made a trip out to take care of the problem. Being able to walk from the cabin to Crescent Moon Ranch and a number of other trailheads was a real plus for us. Marcia was very helpful and responsive in the booking process and answering questions. We had a tremendously fulfilling stay at the cabin on Zane Grey Lane.
