Upon arrival, we received a tour and explanation of breakfast routine. The room was comfortable with an individual bathroom and individual a/c control. We were given a key ring with a key to our room and to the front door which was kept locked much of the time for security. Each of the 5 rooms has it's own terrace with... More

We have only positive things to say about The Penrose. The room was very comfortable - good beds, easy chair, private balcony with outdoor furniture, private bath, spotless housekeeping, sumptuous linens. Most important in this part of the country - A ROOM WITH A VIEW, a spectacular room with a view! Whitney and Christie were gracious hosts. They love the... More

Our party of 4 had never been to Sedona and booked 1 night stay in the Penrose on our way to Grand Canyon, Zion National Park and Santa Monica in late June 2014. What a beautiful area and what a gem of accommodation The Penrose is - we all wished we had planned a longer stay. Our hosts who were... More

We stayed for 4 nights at the Penrose. Our room was comfortable with a beautiful view (even in the bathroom!). We stayed in the coconino, which is possibly the smallest room, but with the best views! The breakfast was delicious every single day. The staff was helpful and kind. We enjoyed the special surprises the owners provide, such as evening... More

Whitney and Christie are wonderful proprietors of this enchanting property. The rooms are clean and cozy, each with an incredible view of the red rocks. Located in a quiet area, which offers a relaxing experience. Whitney never fails to offer advice and assistance for getting around the area, and they are so close to many ruins, sites, and shopping, you... More

We stayed at the Penrose with our grandson who is ten. Of course we loved the view, but were not sure how our grandson would like the visit. In summary, he loved it because he had a short climb up the hill behind the house and he thought that was great. Plus it was his first B&B and this was... More

It's hard to sing the Penrose's praises without repeating other reviews. The place really is as good as everyone says. Whenever we travel, we try to stay in B & Bs, particularly for the personal touch that hosts provide. The Penrose is as good as any B & B at which we've stayed. The view from the eating area and...

As a solo traveler I was looking for some peace and quiet away from the tourist mecca, but close enough to enjoy it if that's what I decided to do. The beauty that surrounds this B&B is incredible and the hosts and staff of the Penrose could not have been more accommodating. I stayed in the Mariposa room for the... More

The Penrose is a great place to land after traveling, with spectacular views to excite any photographer, and a quiet respite, well-designed to accommodate the needs of a weary traveler; but, also well located as a launching point for exploring Oak Creek Canyon, the Grand Canyon, and many movie sites. The breakfast is a delight to the eye as well... More
