5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

What an amazing place to stay. Everything from the "HUGE" living room room and "HUGE" fireplace, the most Romantic Bedroom you will ever have the pleasure of staying in. The well appointed kitchen was absolutely fabulous for preparing dinner.

My only regret is that we didn't stay longer.....

See you next year!

Room Tip: Make sure if you want access to additional bedrooms you ask...otherwise the doors are locked. If yo...

Thank you very much for your comments. We wish you could have stayed longer too. Our 900 square foot, one-bedroom units definately feel HUGE compared to a standard hotel room. We'll stock up on firewood for your next visit.

Thank you again,
Chris

It resides along the windy road into town, but it is a beautiful and quiet little windy road. Our family absolutely loved staying here for two nights. We had a 2 bedroom upstairs and downstairs with back patio and jacuzzi. The views were gorgeous on the patio. The place was very spacious and had a nice little kitchen, we made dinner both nights since it was so comfortable. It felt like a little home away from home after being in Williams and Grand Canyon for 5 previous days.

Sep 2011 - A bonus is that maybe a mile down the road, there is a small bridge. You can park on the far side of the bridge or park a 1/2 mile before and hike to it. When you get there, you can take a short walk off the road into a small property where there is a little stream. You can climb on down and enjoy nature made rapids almost like water park slides. We had a blast sliding around this one section all day. There had to be 30-40 people relaxing in the off season, and it was like water sliding in front of a sports audience. Everyone was having fun and laughing and engaging. Just a wonderful little surprise for any family. It is almost a must visit hidden gem in Sedona!

We highly recommend staying at Juniper for any family. Excellent and affordable value.

It sounds like you are referencing Slide Rock State Park, which is one mile south of us. You sure picked a great time of year to enjoy the natural waterslides. Just a mile and half nort of us is picturesque West Fork - one of the most beautiful hiking trails in the state.

Thanks so much for staying with us, and we hope to see you again very soon.

You'd be crazy to stay in town when you can stay here, just about 8 miles up beautiful Oakcreek Canyon. Our "room" had all the needed cooking equipment. Firewood was supplied each day. The living area was comfortable and the bathroom was huge. The affiliated restaurant provided good food, prompt service and the prices were fair. If only they heated the plates I'd call it great.
Resort staff was eager to help when it turned out the ice maker in the refrigerator didn't work very well..

Room Tip: Pick a room so where you can see the mountain across the creek. the morning view is amazing.

We agree with your assessment of our location. Far enough from the busy shopping areas in Sedona, but not too far to get there when you want to go. Junipine is situated in the heart of Oak Creek Canyon so stream fishing and hiking are right out your front door. Step out your back door and you're a few steps from a game of cards with a cool drink on your private deck overlooking the creek and the west canyon walls.

Thank you so much for your review, and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

We had a very lovely condo to spend the night. My only complaint was that the pull out bed in the couch which we needed for our very small children was filthy, and so bare in cushion that it was unbearably uncomfortable, even for a pull out bed. Apparently they did not know we needed to use it or, they said, they would have had it freshly made up. Still, it was really really gross. The grounds were very nice and it was a wonderful place to walk around and enjoy the outdoors in Sedona away from the tourist attractions. The condo had a fireplace and a skylight which were both very enjoyable. Breakfast was also very good, though limited. Overall, I am sure we picked the best place for our family to stay this January in Sedona.

We are so glad you stayed here too. I was grateful to hear that you enjoyed the accommodations, the fireplace, and our Cafe next door. I addressed your comment regarding the sofabed, as our expectation for our staff is that the sofabeds are ready to use at anytime.

My husband and I went to visit the Grand Canyon and then drove down to Sedona. This was a 50th birthday trip for him and he loves to trout fish. I picked the Junipine Resort because it had a trout stream and looked to have accommodations that had king beds, fireplaces and hottubs on some of the decks. We arrived at the Junipine and they did not have my reservation, even tho it had been booked with them and I had a receipt with a booking number. Nevertheless, they gave us #7 overlooking the trout stream with a hottub and two fireplaces, one in the bedroom! What a beautiful condo. It had two bedrooms but we only used the one on the main floor that had a king bed. The upstairs bedroom had two queen beds in it. After being in Sedona for only a short time, the rains began and the trout stream became a roaring river. Oh well, no more trout fishing! The rain messed up our Red Jeep Tour but we went to see the Montezumas castle and to the Hotel in Jerome for a drink at the bar! Our condo was absolutely beautiful, well appointed and had a sleep number bed. The price is not cheap for the Junipine but they bring you daily firewood and towels if you ask. The Junipine is in Oak Creek Canyon need Slide Rock State Park. Overall, a excellent trip even if it did rain! We used the jacuzzi in the rain and just enjoyed relaxing! We will come again!

Room Tip: Ask for a stream or creek view.

I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. At check-in, I'm glad Rose was able to make you feel welcome and comfortable in spite of the reservation glitch. #7 is a beautiful creekhouse, and it sounds like it was an excellent fit for you and your husband.

Thank you for staying with us. I loved hearing about the highlights of your weekend. The trout will be here for your next visit ;)

We stayed at Junipine Resort in January 2013 for one night only, but wish we could have stayed longer ( we will return for a longer stay). The setting is beautiful and the unit we stayed in was gorgeous --- the furnishings were in good shape, the bed was very comfortable and the kitchen was very well appointed. The fireplace and the ample supply of firewood was very welcomed on a cold January evening. Would recommend Junipine Resort.

We stayed at this resort for two nights in January. It was very cold outside, even some ice and snow. The unit we stayed in was very spacious, with lots of storage capacity. The cabinets were rather old and a bit run-down looking (especially for the price you pay), but serviceable. Kitchen was well stocked with various dishes and utensils. Cleanliness was average...the kitchen and baths were fine, but they obviously don't clean under the beds...we found toys, clothing labels, wrappers, etc. under them when we were checking before our departure. The thing which was most troublesome was that there was a very strong odor of woodsmoke throughout the unit, which bothered me a lot, as I am very sensitive to odors and to smoke. (I found it rather ironic that the property strictly forbids smoking, yet the unit reeked of wood smoke.) This persisted even when my husband closed the flues on both of the fireplaces. The night we arrived we had planned to have dinner at the Junipine restaurant. When we got there they had closed it early due to lack of patronage, and we had to drive back to town to find another place to eat. The complimentary breakfast was of good quality. One the first morning we had a very grumpy, surly waitress whose attitude kind of put a damper on the meal. On the second morning we had a delightful, perky, happy young waitress which made all the difference. The office personnel were helpful and cheerful, and very accommodating when we left one night early due to the wood smoke problem. I think this place would be nicer in warmer weather when the fireplace would not have been recently used and the windows could be opened. The other problem was that it is located a good 15 to 20-minute drive outside of town, so every time we wanted to go into town it involve at least 30 minutes of driving round-trip. Also, my husband and kids are runners and there was no place nearby where they could go running. Kind of a disappointment.

Dear Upstatetraveler_10

Thank you for your recent review. I enjoyed speaking with you at checkout. As we discussed, it was one of the coldest stretches of weather we have experienced in this area in the past 30 years. I certainly understand how the weather had an effect on your stay with us. I’m also very sorry there was a strong odor of wood smoke in your house and we missed some items left under one of the beds. We will reinforce the importance of consistently cleaning under the beds with our housekeeping team. Normally, we do not have issues with smoke in the houses. I will have our engineering team double check the house you stayed in. I also wanted to explain that we forbid smoking at Junipine because of our forest environment and the fire danger that it presents. Of great concern to me were your comments regarding the Cafe hours and service. I want you to know that we have addressed them with our Cafe staff, and I apologize for the substandard service you received. We would love to see you try Junipine again. It that is a possibility, please feel free to reach out to me personally and I will be happy to ensure that you have a memorable experience.
