“cosy lovely stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

My son and I stayed at briar Patch for two nights on a mini road trip around Arizona. It's a beautiful place to stay - we had the Oak cottage. Fantastic fire and I would recommend staying in and cosying up to a home cooked meal in your cabin. The surroundings are lovely - very near the creek and the gorgeous Oak Creek Canyon.
Fantastic dining room / office - and a great breakfast all be it vegi. The staff are extremely helpful and the atmosphere here is relaxing and quiet.
It wasn't warm enough when we were here but I would love to use the swimming hole which is in front of the cabins!

The whole experience was truly a great surprise. The cabins (eagle) are designed with comfort in mind. The wood burning fireplaces and the views are not matched anywhere in Sedona. If you want to refresh and get away from it all this is the place! The staff treats you like family. Won't stay anywhere else in Sedona other than Briar Patch Inn

We LOVE the Briar Patch Inn! We stay in the same cabin we did when we married and come every anniversary. We just had our 9th anniversary October 22, 2013. We love "coming home" and not seeing any changes. We love the foot, the living quarters, the sheep, the ambiance, the sounds, the smells, that there are no TV's or phones in the rooms, that we know the owner and staff. Everyone is super friendly, REAL, down to earth, not fake, genuine, and takes note of how our individual lives change from year to year. Observant is the right word for the owner and staff. Nothing could be better about The Briar Patch Inn. Nothing. God willing we will be 90 years old celebrating our anniversary together in years to come. Thank you Rob and Team for providing us a place to remember when we married and to reconnect with ourselves year to year. We will always be a fan. See you in October 2014.
Hugs,
Karen and Todd Herzog

At Briar Patch, we have had the special privilege of welcoming back many long time guests. Todd and Karen (and now little Sander) are very precious to us and we look forward to having them back every year. Thank you for making what we do worth while....after all, it is about making connections. See you next year!!!

This is the second time staying at The Briar Patch and I was not disappointed! It's a magical place and perfect for reflecting and unwinding. The cabins are so quaint, with wood burning fireplaces! Absolutely love this place!!

We stay at this Bed and Breakfast for 3 nights. Rather than rooms each visitor gets a rustic cabin. The cabins had fireplaces and comfortable beds but A/C was an old window units so don't go during hot weather. The breakfast buffet was good but the same basic menu every morning. Be prepared to have your own flashlight if you leave your cabin at night, there is no lights outside and you will need to negotiate narrow paths.

As always, we are grateful for the feedback from our guests, after all, you are why we are here.
Yes, we are “off the beaten path.” We are located three miles from Sedona proper and placed in Oak Creek Canyon among the trees and a babbling brook. We may not be for those who would prefer to stay close to the “action.” We also have no phones or televisions in the cabin, which we consider to be a plus.
As far as lighting on the property, we intentionally have low yellow lighting, which is throughout the grounds, to minimize light pollution. Arizona is known for star gazing and we try not to compete with the quality of viewing. Also, we do provide flashlights and place one in each cabin. If, however, yours was missing….we sincerely apologize for not catching that detail.
We maintain a core breakfast menu that we think provides variety; homemade granola, steel cut oats, hard and soft boiled eggs, sun dried plums in orange cinnamon sauce, South African seven grain bread, orange juice, coffee and assorted teas. We do change out our quiche everyday (jalapeño quiche muffins, tomato feta, vegetable, chili relleno, and tortilla) and our baked good (variety of muffins, honey bran bundt cake, cranberry nut torte.
We do have wall units in all of the cabins for air-conditioning and seem to be successful with keeping our cabins cool in even in our hottest months. If, however, the unit in this cabin was not meeting your needs, that is an issue that needs to be addressed. Our hope is that our guests inform us immediately of anything that is not working for them so that we can take corrective measures right away.

Its hard to now where to start, this place is amazing, nestled in amongst the trees and river only 10 minutes from Sedona. Tranquil in its surroundings this is one of the most peaceful places we stayed in Arizona. Quiet, relaxing and bursting with energy. Friendly and very helpful staff. Live music by world class musicians accompanied breakfast every morning. This is a must experience if you are anywhere near Sedona.

I almost hate to review this place, because I don't want it to get overrun and ruined. This place is a hidden gem. It is a little pricy, but well worth the cost. My husband and I stayed here about a year ago, and could not have picked a better place. Our cabin was right on the creek, they provide daily room cleaning, and wood for the fireplace. The grounds are beautiful. We simply did not want to leave at the end of our vacation. Most places can be dated, unclean or creepy, and this place far surpassed our expectations. It's less touristy and more comfortable then staying in the middle of the town of Sedona. I highly recommend Briar Patch Inn, splurge, you won't regret it.

Room Tip: I don't think you can go wrong with any of the rooms/cabins here. They seem to really genuinely...
