About the property

3 bedroom 2.5 bathroom creek side home with canyon views 10 miles to Sedona

Step into "Call of the Canyon" and you will quickly realize you have found a special place. Generous windows give view to the peaceful stream and soaring canyon. Located in the Coconino National Forest, next to West Fork Oak Creek trail you will find plenty to explore in your own backyard. Walk down the steps to the creek and fish for trout or just relax and enjoy the scenery from the deck and try out the new Weber gas grill.


The house has 3 levels. The main level opens up to a fully equipped kitchen, living room and half bathroom. Within the kitchen is a dining table with seating for 4 plus 3 bar stools for counter-top eating. There is also a washer/dryer within a closet off the kitchen.

The living room has ample seating to enjoy views of the creek and soaring canyon. There is also a working fireplace within the living room.


Off the main level is the deck- a perfect place for morning coffee or an afternoon cocktail. The deck is accessed through a sliding screen door off the living room. We have two cocktail sized tables that can be put on the deck. There are 4 tall chairs and 2 bar stools that can be used on the deck as well. We also have a grill for your use.


The house has a total of three bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms.

The Master Bedroom has a king bed with an en- suite bathroom and double vanity. There is also a private door entry to this bedroom. The master is located on the lower level and does have generous window views to the creek.

The Guest Bedroom has a queen bed with an en-suite bathroom and double vanity. There is also a private door entry to this bedroom. It too has generous windows with views to the creek. This bedroom is located on the lower level.

The Loft Bedroom is located on the upper level. Natural light fills the bedroom. The loft area does not have its own bathroom.


We do have wifi. We cannot guarantee that it will be perfect 100% of the time as the location/canyon signal is sometimes intermittent.

Please note that due to the location of this property and the environmental benefits gained we have opted to use Sun-Mar composting toilets. Operating the toilets is not difficult. You do not use water. Its a composting system in which you use peat moss and turn a drum.


Oak Creek Canyon is approximately 12 miles long and 2000 feet deep. Although private and out of town, Sedona is just 15 minutes away or 9.5 miles. A number of small shops are conveniently located to the home. Junipine Cafe and the Butterfly Garden serve food and are only minutes from the home. Slide Rock Park is just 4 miles south from the house. Here you can enjoy a day of fun swimming on the natural rocks. According to Rand McNally, the Oak Creek Scenic Drive is one of the Top 5 Most Scenic Drives in America.

Perfect retreat in the canyon

  • 5 of 5

Great spot perfectly located for trail hikes and within an easy drive of Sedona. The home was just as described. Loved the creek side location. We would definitely consider staying here again on our next visit to Sedona.

Great house for our family of 5!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the house. My children loved playing in the creek. The accommodations were clean and spacious. The owner was on hand to answer questions as well.

Great location for the best hiking/activities in the region.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay on Shady Lane! The house is clean, comfortable and really felt like home. The rushing creek in the back of the house is spectacular! As soon as we arrived, we dropped the luggage off and walked over to the trail at West Fork - located right next door. The cabin/house is a fantastic location for hiking in Sedona, Flagstaff, and the Grand Canyon. Close to everything. John was very responsive and gave us great information about the area. This was one of our favorite VRBO stays.

Can not get that close to the water anywhere else in the canyon!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was beautiful. The water front property is one of a kind. There is not another place that hangs over the creek like this! The wifi was great! The toilets are...different but we would never let them keep us from using this cabin again in the future. Thank you for a great stay!

Great Place for a Winter Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed for a week over Christmas 2015, had a great time, ran into some problems (more on that in a minute) but would do it again. The house is beautiful! In the winter you can watch the snow coming down over the creek from almost every room and the hikes, if anything, are even more striking than other seasons (and quite uncrowded). We did run into problems with the house water and the heat, but both were odd flukes that quickly sorted out and resolved with the help of the owner, who was immediately responsive and helpful. The only thing I'd do differently, and would recommend to other winter renters, would be to consider getting a 4-wheel drive car. The house is towards the far end of Oak Creek and is considerably higher than Sedona. So it was routine for us to get snow and a bit of ice, while Sedona got a bit of mist. Made our stay at the house even more magical, while making the hikes in Sedona even nicer.

Great hiking and beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week and loved every minute. It's somewhat secluded and very peaceful. The home is located just outside the Coconino National Forest in Oak Creek Canyon and the view is awesome. You can walk out the front door to the national forest which has the beautiful red rocks, walking trails, and the Oak Creek. You can hike several miles in the forest. There are a couple of nice coffee shops and restaurants down the road. It's a few miles to Sedona if you want more options for dining and shopping but the home has everything you need. It's centrally located to many activities and numerous hikes with beautiful views. We drove to the Grand Canyon for a day trip. There are scenic views almost everywhere. We left the windows open all night to listen to the creek. The beds are very comfortable. The house is very clean and well maintained. The living room has large windows that overlook the creek and trees. The loft is huge and offers many windows for a great view. The bedrooms also offered great views of the creek and trees. Can't wait to visit again.
