We arrived at the Penrose in the dark after a full day of traveling. Christie welcomed us warmly and showed us to our room (the Coconino). We immediately headed into Oak Creek for a late dinner at the Blue Moon Café (which we thoroughly enjoyed - a great place to get up to speed on local politics) and then returned to the Inn for some much needed sleep. I woke up at dawn the next morning because I'd seen pictures of the fabled views from the Penrose and I couldn't wait to see them for myself. The bathroom windows look out on Castle Rock and Red Butte and from the balcony of Coconino, you can enjoy the complete view featured on the Penrose website. Think of all the superlatives you can and there is still no word to describe the initial impact of that view. It is absolutely stunning. A delicious, hearty breakfast was served on the patio as we soaked in our surroundings.
This B&B is very conveniently located close to downtown Oak Creek and a sort drive to Sedona. The hosts have thoughtfully put together a binder of information and reviews about local restaurants, services, and attractions which was invaluable as we went about planning our day. Our hosts, Christie and Whitney were gracious and accommodating and capped off our visit with a collection of photographs Whitney took of us in front of Red Butte. There are many places to stay in the Sedona area, but none will make your visit as memorable as the Penrose.
