The previous reviews say it all. If you are looking for a quaint place where the hosts address your every need and interest without hovering, this is it. If you are looking for one of the best views of the Sedona area without leaving your room (or bathroom), this is it. If you are looking for a gourmet breakfast and... More

We chose the Penrose Bed and Breakfast because of its splendid reviews and its reported splendid views. Nothing could have prepared us, however, for the property's actual proximity to the red rock formations called "The Castle", "The Courthouse", and "Bell Rock". The Penrose's parking lot is at the foot of these giant landmarks, as is the bed and breakfast itself.... More

We stayed three nights at The Penrose and it was a beautiful stay in a number of ways. There were fantastic views of the red rock from our room (even the bathroom had a view), the Coconino, which was well appointed and comfortable. There was a nice balcony from which to gaze at the beautiful views or simply read. The... More

It's almost surreal to see this property for the first time. I'm not sure the owners could have found a better location, in a quiet and pretty neighborhood away from the crowds and up on a hill overlooking gorgeous Bell Rock. In addition, Whitney goes out of his way to help his guests find the perfect hike or nice restaurant,... More

I am just completing three nights at the Penrose, and could not be happier with my stay. Every aspect of my visit has been wonderful. The views from my room were just incredible, but what really makes the Penrose special are the owners, and their friendly and capable staff. Everyone went out of there way to cater to whatever need... More

We were totally delighted by this lovely little inn that sits up on a hill by the side of Red Butte. The beautiful mountains we came to see were just outside our windows and visible from the outdoor deck where we enjoyed our gourmet breakfasts. I don't imagine there could be a nicer place at any price.

Whitney greeted us showed us our room with an amazing view...and offered suggestion on places to eat and things to do. The breakfast is hearty and very creative...most of all... More
