This place is so relaxing. We were greeted by a wonderful young lady who advised me that they were new owners. Told me if we needed anything she was going to be in the office will late. Our rooms were great and everything was perfect. My boys had a great time. they even had board games near the office to... More

We checked in just short of 3:30 and the room was finished except for the bed which was no big deal. The TV didn't work, but they came right away and fixed it. The cabin is a typical dimly lite cabin, but very charming. The grounds and cabin though full were very quiet. It has plenty of picnic tables and... More

Hello. First off, I would like to thank this guest for their business and for their favorable review. I also wanted to respond to some of the not-so-good aspects of this review so that guests have a more accurate depiction of the lodge and us. The kitchen water flow was due to the faucet filter which has since been replaced.... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Christopher Creek Lodge. It is as advertised = rustic, older small cabins with all the conviences of kitchen & cooking. Even with the forest fire restrictions they provided gas grills for our cooking. This is not a 5star Sedona resort but rather a comfy old west respite, it is quiet and that creek is... More

Fantastic Staff! This place is very peaceful and absolutely gorgeous! Nearby restaurant called Landmark has excellent food and great customer service. We will definitely be coming back to Christopher Creek Lodge!

I just returned from spending 5 nights at the Christopher Creek Lodge. I will definitely go back again. The cabins are RUSTIC and pleasant. I stayed in the bunkhouse that has double bed bunk. The beds were comfortable and even the pillows were good. I really got the feel of a change of pace, the site is relaxing, the people... More

We wanted to escape the unbearable heat in Phoenix, so we chose to head up to the mountains. We were looking for a more rustic destination and chose Christopher Creek Lodge. It was everything we imagined rustic would look like and being on the creek was very refreshing. The only problem we encountered was no air conditioning! Sadly when it... More

First of all, we would very much like to thank this guest for their business and their excellent review! I did want to use this as an opportunity to also address the weather and temperatures in Christopher Creek, as it is a very common question we get asked. There is no "weather gauge" in Christopher Creek. The best rule of... More

I had two bars of AT&T 4g service on my iPhone. Bring your own fire wood for community camp fire (it was not provided as mentioned in another review). My wife, 20mth old daughter and I stayed in a trail bunk which was plenty of room for the three of us. Lots of other family's on this holiday weekend which... More

This is our 2nd visit to Christopher Creek and 1st visit to the Christopher Creek Lodge. I and my 2 six year old daughters stayed in the bunk cabin. It was perfect. A small kitchenette, bathroom, fireplace, and the bunks were large. My girls played daily on their very "cool" rustic play area pretending to be in their own cabin... More

If you are looking for a family-friendly get-away in the cool pines, then look no further! CCL is a family favorite; so much so, that we have stayed at the Lodge three times in the past 10 months. We have stayed in the Pioneer's Cabin, Fisherman's Cabin, and Trailbunks. Both the Fisherman's and Pioneer's cabins have amazing lofts with four... More

I needed a quick room at the last minute. The lady at the desk gave me a great rate. This trip I just needed a bed so I stayed at the motel, not in a cabin. The motel room is so nice, it doesn't have coffee or room service but you go up to Christipher Creek for the beauty and... More
