After reading the previous review, I thought about what I would write. You see, I too have been going to the Red Setter for years. This was the first time my husband and I went back under the new owner.
And, I'm sorry, but it was NOT the same. There was no personality or feeling of specialness. It was just...a place...still quite beautiful, but already starting to show signs of neglect. And it was by NO WAY worthy of the Fodor's Top Ten list.
Housekeeping was barely adequate, food was ...okay..some people were quite friendly, but others distracted...couldn't check in at the Inn, had to go to the Greer Lodge all encompassing "check-in location"..and for all this they RAISED THE PRICES.
It's just a shame, but we won't be back either.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Perhaps you have heard of Greer, Arizona, located at the end of the Road to Nowhere. Surrounded by the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest, there is one road in and one road out. Meadows, Ponderosa pines, aspens, hiking trails, lakes and the Little Colorado River grace the Village with beauty. Located at the end of the road, you will find the Red Setter, Arizona's Riverside Retreat where the river meanders through the approximate 4-acre grounds, giant ponderosas abound and wildlife freely come and go. The Red Setter offers a 9 bedroom lodge and 4 detached cabins. The approximate 8,000 square foot lodge is a perfect setting for corporate events, weddings, church retreats, reunions and group outings. Each bedroom has a private bath (some with jetted tubs), several have fireplaces and some rooms have a private porch to enjoy the views and fresh air. A 75-inch HD television (with HDMI capabilities for all of your computer and presentation needs) and blu-ray DVD player are located in the living room. The lodge is equipped with a full kitchen, several tables for dining and/or meetings, a game room (with 65-inch HD television and blu-ray DVD player), and den/library. Also included are DirecTV and password secured Wi-Fi. Two large outdoor decks provide the perfect atmosphere for the soothing sound of the river in a picture perfect setting! Plentiful outdoor furniture are spread throughout the grounds, mainly along the river. The four separate cabins also sit along the river. Choose from the 2 bedroom (2 baths), the large 4 bedroom (3.5 baths) or one of the 1 bedroom (1 bath plus laddered loft) cabins. Each has its own kitchen, fireplace(s) and deck(s). Pull-out sofas sleepers allow for extra sleeping accommodations. Other amenities include barbeque grills, 46-inch HD televisions, blu-ray DVD players, Directv, password secured Wi-Fi and in some cases, jetted tubs. As the new owners of the Red Setter, we have been working hard restoring the grounds, updating cabins and adding amenities to be sure your stay is memorable and serene. Three fire pits, two horseshoe pits, picnic tables, relaxing swings and chairs along the river are just some of the recent upgrades. We hope the memories of fishing, playing, relaxing and pure serenity will last you a lifetime! ... more less
