Sycamore Springs Guest House

Small Pond below guest suites – Shirley Millar

ADA Accessibility Notes

Inquire about special needs.

This is a special place tucked away at the end of the road; a historic cattle ranch between Sedona and Cottonwood accommodating adults only and children over 15. You don't get to work cattle or ride horses, but you get to experience the original ambience of this working cattle ranch plus the beauty of the grounds, the gardens and the pastures along lower Oak Creek.

Vineyards and wine tasting are close by. It is truly a destination place; peaceful and private.

Driving Directions

From the Airport, take I-17 north toward Flagstaff.

Approx. 85 mi North, take HWY 260 West to Cottonwood (about 15 miles).

to 89A N (LEFT turn LANE). Go 2 1/2 - 3 miles to the third signal which is the junction with Cornville Rd. Go through that light and travel 3.4 Miles toward Sedona on 89A to: Oak Creek Valley Rd : turn RIGHT

Go 1 ½ miles to fork. Look for a large stucco sign that says Oak Creek Valley.

Bear right at that sign on Merritt Ranch Rd. and go 1 + 1/2 miles till you see
the Sycamore Springs Sign.

Eco-Friendly Notes

We do not use poisons in our pastures or grounds as we have a large population of local wildlife, we sell grass-fed beef, and Oak Creek runs through the property in two places.
