Nestled on 2 acres on a hill amid rolling fields of cactus and junipers sits our Serene Sedona Area Residence, a former B&B named Contentment Lodge. A private, exclusive setting in Sedona's nearby wine country, Cornville, AZ, just 25 minutes south of Sedona. Cornville offers the cool setting of award-winning wine vineyards and verdant ranch pastures, including the publicized ranch of Senator McCain.
Cited as one of the most beautiful places in America by USA Today Weekend, Sedona is located in Arizona's high desert (4500 ft. above sea level) under the towering southwestern rim of the vast Colorado Plateau, blessed with 4 mild seasons marked by abundant sunshine and clean air. Ideally, the annual average high and low temperatures are 74.7 and 45.7 degrees.
Our intimate residential accommodations include 3 deluxe, large bedrooms (11 beds) with scenic views and a wonderful six-jet Jacuzzi bathtub. Comfortable beds all have new mattresses, pillows and linens and soft cotton blankets and comforters. This Expansive Sedona Area Residence has new hi-dimension televisions, plus video and DVD recorders, a video/DVD library, and two stereos. All of the rooms in the Lodge have wi-fi connection.
Indoors, there is also a large 19' by 21' unfurnished recreation room in which the owner does Yoga and holds meetings and social gatherings.
The spacious living room, with an electric fireplace, and dining area are decorated with touches of Egyptian art. The residence is comfortably heated by propane or cooled by air conditioning. The newly-renovated kitchen is fully stocked with service for more than 12, toaster oven, microwave, gas stove, deluxe dishwasher and appliances, plus a hi-efficiency clothes washer and dryer in the laundry room.
The house has a roofed patio for outdoor breakfast, with a dining table and recliners plus an outdoor picnic table that seats 12 comfortably, several seating areas with luxurious lawn furniture and two barbecue grills.
On our two-acre grounds, there is a stone Native American medicine wheel, a semi-circle Ganesha arbor of blue spruce trees with curved concrete benches overlooking awesome views, a goddess fountain cascading down the mountain behind the residence, and a direct view of sacred Sugarloaf Mountain.
We have meditation benches 3/4 up our mountain, that provide a perfect setting to view the stars (unobstructed by traffic lights) and feel the energy of the adjacent sacred mountain.
We chose to live in Cornville, for this serene mellow energy after having lived for years in the stirring energy of Sedona. You will find that after visiting Sedona's sites, it's wonderful to go home to your two-acre soothing energy site, and the short trip is only a 25-minute drive on three paved roads, a very easy and worthwhile commute.
Cornville is the home of award-winning wineries that offer tasting rooms, awesome Montezuma's Well and Castle, and a variety of cozy gourmet restaurants. This residence is 15 minutes from the movies, restaurants and grocery and department stores to the south in Cottonwood. Also nearby to the south is Jerome, a former mining town on a mountain that is now a funky artist community with interesting shops and unique fun restaurants like the Haunted Mansion and the Asylum.
