My wife and I traveled to Sedona to see the Red Rock Fantasy christmas lights the weekend following Thanksgiving. Having visited Sedona numerous times before, we knew how crowded the town can get. Therefore, we opted for something a bit less hectic. The Canyon Wren certainly fit the bill. Althought it is located off a moderately busy road, it was a welcome refuge from the craziness in town. It was very pleasant to have breakfast each morning with Mike and Milena and hear their stories of the history of the property and that area of Oak Creek Canyon. My wife, a chocoholic, apprecieated the nutty, gooey fudge brownies that they provided in our cabin. And as far as the cabins, I have NEVER seen a more immaculately clean place. They are very cozy, yet not cramped. No phones or TV was different, but I it is good to disconnect every once in a while. It was interesting to flip through the stack of guest books they had in the room with entries going back to, if I recall correctly, 1987. It would appear they have had a number of satisfied guests, and deservedly so. A few recommendations would be, if you are bothered by road noise at all, ask for one of the two cabins further from the road. I didn't think it was that disruptive. Althought any time of year in Oak Creek is quite beautiful, I think the fall color would be spectacular. Coming in late November, we missed it, but you can always ask Milena about the best times. As always, be sure to book very early. And if you are able to get there when the leaves change, the West Fork trail would be a must. The hosts have all the information on that and any other activities in the area. We had nice dinners at Dahl and Deluca and Rene at Tlaquepaque. Two very nice hikes are West Fork and Sterling Pass trail to Vultee Arch. The latter hike's trailhead is walking distance to the Canyon Wren.
