We were enchanted with Canyon Wren from the moment we entered the property, which is situated in Oak Creek Canyon at the base of the awe-inspiring red rocks for which Sedona is so famous. The property, with its gardens, fountains and birdbaths, attracts a wide variety of birds, which we enjoyed photographing and watching as we ate our delicious breakfasts. Breakfast included a warm egg dish (i.e. breakfast burrito, quiche, frittata), along with freshly baked muffins (i.e. peach or apple cinnamon) and a lovely selection of fresh fruit.
We stayed in the Morning Glory, which is one of four very private cabins to choose from. The cabins are immaculate and well appointed, and are an incredible bargain, considering all they have to offer. Our cabin had a comfortable, loft bedroom with an upper deck, where we could admire the stars at night while sipping a glass of wine. Downstairs, there was a cozy lounge area with an electric fireplace, a fully equipped kitchen, a full bath with a Jacuzzi tub to soak our sore muscles after our day hikes, and a patio with a grill. This afforded us the option of grilling our own dinner one night to avoid the Easter week crowds in Sedona.
Canyon Wren is situated about 10 minutes north of downtown Sedona and a few short minutes from Slide Rock and one of our favorite hikes, the West Fork Trail. The location is ideal for those who value privacy and a quiet place to relax.
Mike and Milena, along with their assistant Carolyn, are wonderful hosts who manage to strike the perfect balance of being helpful while still respecting your privacy. They were a great source of information on everything from dining to hiking to where to view the best sunrise. We got the sense that they truly love where they live and what they do.
My husband and I travel often and can honestly say that this is one of the best places we have ever stayed!
