My 75 y o mother, 17 y o son, 14 y o daughter and I stayed here the 2nd night of a 7 night road trip through AZ, NV and on to LA. We were greeted very graciously by several folks at the front desk and Scott, the manager. They provided a shuttle to our Pink Jeep Tour, reservations at a cantina for a wonderful Mexican meal and directions to Slide Rock State Park and Flagstaff, en route to the Grand Canyon.
Our creekside cottage (#15) faced a very still portion of the creek and the water was low. However, a short walk down the creek in our spa robes in the morning provided more water movement (prettier) and lots of adorable ducks. The restaurant's al fresco setting is lovely. I had anticipated that all of the creekside cottages had the ambiance that the restaurant's outdoor dining area does; in fact, some of the cottages face other cottages or the less lively portion of the creek. I made clear at check-in that I wanted a cottage that faced the creek and #15 does, so I am grateful we had that view.
We had scones and coffee in the morning in the lobby and watched the duck feeding at 8 a/m.
I found the staff VERY eager to please, hospitable and warm. I cannot believe I stayed on the same property as some of the guests on this site with such negative reviews. I travel a great deal for business and pleasure and found this property to have understated elegance. It's not a Four Seasons. It's not opulent. It's in the woods, surrounded by beautiful mountains of red rock and centrally located to all that is Sedona. It is relaxed, yet has attentive staff. After staying in "nothing special" hotels, I think most people visiting Sedona would really enjoy this very convenient, quiet, elegant little oasis. Our cottage was comfortable for 4, with a queen sleep sofa and king size bed. Think cabin more than cottage and Jackson Hole more than Scottsdale and I think your expectations will be more on target. Enjoy!
