Inside the House are many small doorways with low overhangs that you must step over to access the rooms.  see houseontheedgeoftime.com for additional info

Wow, what an amazing, unique place to stay for a night! This little house has a great story behind its Arcosanti-style architecture and Jessie has done an amazing job making it comfortable for guests to enjoy. It's hard to fully capture the experience of staying here in pictures, so I'll try to explain in words: you walk onto the patio and you're looking out over the mountains at 5,000 ft in Jerome, an old copper mining town and now a historic ghost town; when you step inside the house, you're in a beautiful stone entryway/living room where the sink and shower are located at the back; you walk through a tiny hobbit-sized doorway and you're in the studio that has a comfy bed and a wood fired stove; then you walk through another tiny doorway into the kitchen, where Jessie has provided cookware and coffee. The bathroom is outside, about 10 ft from the entryway. This place was so unique and fun to stay in and we loved walking through the old town of Jerome. Jessie also had great recommendations for places to eat in town - The Mine Café for breakfast and Grapes for dinner were excellent! This place is truly one of a kind and I would recommend it to anyone traveling through the area!

This place was AWESOME! My wife and I celebrated one of our anniversary nights here and we couldn't have been more happy with the stay. We really enjoyed the hot tub for stargazing at night & coffee in the morning. The host was extremely friendly and informed us about a "locals" hike that truly made our trip one-of-a-kind! Can't wait to stay again :)

From the moment you walk through the gate you feel like a big kid. Little magic touches here and there — kaleidoscopes, bees buzzing, little hidden nooks filled with books and candles. We had everything we needed as well. Jessie provides most of the kitchen essentials, bedding, etc. A truly quiet, relaxing getaway with the best view. It’s just down the road from a sleepy little town called Jerome - filled with perhaps the nicest folks ever, and a little over a half hour from Sedona. Cottonwood is in between and worth checking out as well.

If you’re looking for a unique experience, this is the spot for you. The home itself is to navigate if you’re on the taller side. There are odd corners, odd elevation changes, and the doorways are small (as described in the listing). Where there was an issue, the host was able to take care of it.

Pros: abundant fig and apple tree within the property’s green space. Nice view. Unique. Nice host.
Cons: slow or non-functioning WiFi
