Our new digs

Our 2011 digs are at 141 Purtymun Lane in Sedona. Purtymun Lane is named after one of the early setters, as is much of the stuff around the area. We are located about .5 miles north of uptown Sedona on the way up Oak Creek Canyon. This was the first time we actually saw the rental before we booked it. We met with the owner, Linda Cohen, last April and liked the place so much we decided to lock it in then. In fact, many of the places we looked at before finding this one were already booked for the following year. This was a complete change in style of house, neighborhood and location. We thought we would give it a try and we are really happy here. As the weather warms up, we will really enjoy the deck and the sunsets over Cathedral Rock in the distance.

Here are some photos of the place.

Here is the entry way to the home. There is a slight lip to the porch so Judy laid down some stones and a bone we found on the trail as a reminder not to trip.

You go through the French Doors to the living room where we have comfortable chairs and an HDTV.

Through the windows behind the couch we have a perfect view of Thumb Butte or Giant's Thumb. The sun comes up behind it and it is in full glory in the afternoon.

To the right of the living room is the kitchen. It is narrow but has everything we need, even a wine cooler.

Next to the kitchen is a dining area with sliding glass doors out to the deck. The deck has comfortable chairs and a fire pit that we hope to enjoy.

From the deck we have a great view of Cathedral Rock about 4 miles away in the distance.

In the hall behind the kitchen, there is a master bedroom with bath and a guest bedroom with a full bath in the hall. Here is the master bedroom with the sliding doors to the deck.

That about covers it, except for a lower level with a sitting area and small bedroom. We can use this for overflow. Here is the spiral staircase leading down to the level.


  1. What great views! Looks like a really comfortable place. How's the weather?

    Have you started painting?

  2. Weather is beautiful at the moment, but perhaps some rain on the horizon. Been out painting a bit and I'll post some photos soon.
