This place is probably not for you...   If you are looking for a true hotel experience - keep looking, if the thought of climbing through small doorways inside the home sounds like a challenge - or if you are opposed to living close to nature look elsewhere.   If life on the edge of the mountain with an uneven landscape gives you vertigo stay home.   However if you are looking for a truly unique experience and a chance to stay in a home designed by a brilliant architect ( Paul Nonnast) sounds like a dream come true  - then this is your place and it is for You that I have gone through the effort to make this available to host new friends who share my sense of wanderlust.  This unique House was built in 1977. Inspired by Arcosanti and the vision of Paolo Soleri. It is carved into the earth and built of natural materials and objects found in the area. There is a walkway that leads to the home, a kiva, and patio for outdoor living. Guests must use good judgement and situational awareness at all times due to the uneven surfaces and the rock ledges. 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

House on the Edge of time is the most unique and amazing Hipcamp and I cannot recommend enough! From incredible views, indoor/outdoor concept design, a plunge pool, hot tub and great proximity to Jerome, the Verde River and Sedona - this place creates an unforgettable stay. You will feel the peace and relaxation of being in nature with the luxuries of a cozy bed, record player, kitchen access, air conditioning, plenty of shade, etc. Jessie is an amazing host and takes great care to ensure that you have a wonderful stay and visit to the area. We found the people in Jerome very kind and met many local artists/residents who even knew the late architect who designed and built The House on the Edge of Time, Paul Nonnast.

This spot is magical, simply put. Feels like an architectural hobbit’s dream. Each room wraps into the next through cut out window doors, and the thoughtful design Jessie has put into making this space feel cozy is evident. Then to finish out the night relaxing in the hot tub, gazing at the stars was extraordinary. I would highly recommend this spot and will certainly be visiting again!
