When you read of resorts everyone thinks that it is going to be heavenly. A lot of the time they are not even close. Most resorts charge for EVERYTHING and you are usually worried about having enough 1's and 5's for tipping. This place blew away any resort or hotel I have ever stayed at. When I told my wife we were going to be staying in a cottage/cabin, she was of course skeptical. When we arrived the first thing the valet said was "There is no tipping here except for meals or at the bar". I took my 5 put it back in my pocket and looked at my wife with an odd face. We walked in and they had us sit down at the front desk where a very nice employee walked us through everything at the resort and handed us an events calendar along with a pass for 2 free glasses of wine at the bar. My wife was of course very excited for the free wine. A bell man took our bags to our cottage and showed us around pointed out every little feature, even how to turn on and off the fireplace (which was powered by remote). The cottage was nothing short of exceptional. It had a spa tub, 2 showers (one indoor and one outdoor cedar shower), a large bathroom with two sinks, a large room with a King bed, plasma TV, fireplace, desk, fridge, and the beautiful back porch that overlooked the red rock formations of Sedona. My wife laid on the bed and said "Ok now I am relaxed". We decided to check out the bar and get our free wine. The bartender was one of the best I have ever had and his name was Russell. We came back every night just to see him there. When I tell you that it would be hard to top this, I mean it. The location was also exceptional. It was about 40min from Flagstaff, 2hrs from the Grand Canyon, 1.5hrs from the Meteor Crater, and near more national parks than I could count. If you want a wonderful, relaxing trip where you can just enjoy the beauty that is America, this is the place to go.
