“Tranquil & lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

Our Nov. '12 trip to Sedona was our 3rd visit to this beautiful place & our second stay at Junipine. Since it was just my husband & me, the upstairs bedrooms were closed off; it's nice to know that if we travel with extended family, there will be room for all. Both units in which we have stayed had been recently updated with great kitchen setups and tasteful & interesting decor (not the standard hotel kind, since units are privately owned). On both visits, our large decks had outdoor furniture. Our last unit featured a large bathroom with 2 sinks.

About updated units: Two years ago when we first stayed at Junipine, TripAdvisor reviewers suggested that folks request an updated unit since some of these privately owned units were showing age & wear. When I asked about updates to other units this visit, management reported that they have been encouraging owners to update and that "almost all" have been updated at this point. When making a reservation, I think I'd ask about the unit's recent renovation history. The two units in which we've stayed have both been first rate.

Accessibility: Outdoor stairs - not too many & not too steep - are necessary to access units. This makes for quiet since units are removed from the parking lot & road, but requires some lifting of suitcases. I don't know if wheelchair accessible rooms are available - possibly near the office. Worth asking.

Amenities & services: On our first stay 2 years ago, coffee grounds, creamer, & wood for the 2 fireplaces (living room & 1st floor master bedroom) were delivered each morning, and trash was picked up. On our most recent trip, we were asked to call between certain hours to specifically request each no-extra-fee service. On the good side, this policy means we could hang out undisturbed, a huge benefit. On the down side, our request - to a polite & gracious person - for extra wood seemed to have been forgotten one day, perhaps because the delivery folks noted upon arrival that we still had a goodly supply.
Outdoor barbecue grills are strategically placed for sharing along entry walkways. Not sure if the lobby sells charcoal & starter. Junipine also has a restaurant; check hours.

Money matters: Our unit last fall included a huge deck (to save $, we chose a unit with no creek view & no hot tub) and a huge bathroom. Very comfortable with a pretty view of trees and cliff beyond the creek. I think there's a Triple A discount, but since we were there off-season, that discount exceeded the Triple one.

Location: Other reviews have remarked that Junipine is along Oak Creek Canyon several miles north of the town of Sedona. While walking distance to some shops & galleries is possible at other places such as the very nice Best Western Arroyo Roble where we stayed during our first visit, much of Sedona involves driving. We love the tranquility & privacy of Junipine.

Shopping tip: The interesting trading post on a small hill directly across the street from the Best Western Arroyo Roble is worth a visit. The pawn jewelry, rugs, small purses, skulls & teeth of a variety of critters are great fun & make unusual gifts.

Our Sedona favorites:
Our Sedona stays consist of equal parts: 1.) hanging out at Junipine to eat b'fast, read, & prepare a backpacked lunch 2.) hiking 3.) eating at one of Sedona's great restaurants in casual dress or not-too-spattered hiking clothes.
While there is a hiking trail along Oak Creek behind the resort, electric wires hang overhead for the first part of the trail. I found them distracting. On the other hand, we were delighted to spot fly fishermen along Oak Creek as well as a herd of small wild pigs (I forget their real name) that clambered across the trail & up the hillside.
On our last day, we hiked the trail near Enchantment Resort - a lovely trail once we were past Enchantment's not-so-enchanting noisy leaf blowers, fences, & disturbingly threatening signs about trespassing - and then drove straight to dinner at the wonderful Dahl & Delucca. The combination of reading in the morning, hiking a beautiful red rock trail in the afternoon, eating dinner at a four star restaurant in the afternoon, and spending the night in the tranquil & lovely Junipine Resort on Oak Creek is unbeatable. We will return.

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!

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.

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.
