My husband and I recently celebrated his Birthday in one of our favorite hideaways, Garlands Oak Creek Lodge. We love the rustic, but comfortable, cabins combined with gracious and elegant dining. The magic starts when we drive over the low-water crossing and enter the golden-leaf-strewn grounds surrounding the Lodge and cabins.
It always gives us our "New England" fix for the year and we settle into a few blessed days of hiding in plain sight!
Less than an hour from our home in Sedona, we feel thoroughly "on vacation." My husband craves solitude, silence and our scenery and he gets his fill from our visits to Garlands.
The Chef is a great attraction to Garlands, as well. We feasted on Rack of Lamb for my husband's Birthday dinner, served graciously and unobtrusively by the excellent staff. The crackling fire and great lines of this Log Cabin Style Lodge make it a wonderful place to enjoy the company of other guests over a board game or the player piano or just curl up in a nook with a book from the volumes on the shelves.
Some cabins feature wood fireplaces, ours this visit, was on the creek. We had the sensation of being surrounded by sunlit gold leaves, fluttering to ground amid tall dark trees and the sounds of water falling over the stones.
Take a chance, give them a call, if they have a cancellation, grab your chance or plan ahead and book your stay well in advance because they are full most times!
