Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 3, 2013

My wife and I were fortunate to find availability at the Penrose on short notice. The settings and accommodations were as advertised and better. Whitney and Christie were very cordial and made us feel at home. We have told our friends and this B&B is definitely on the list to re-visit. Sedona is a beautiful community and has excellent restaurants.

Picturesque views from the Javalina room. Clean. Wake up to a red rock view through beautiful French doors. We were busy seeing the sights most of the time. However, during our time on our rom we felt very relaxed. Even a modern large flat screen to watch while the lady got ready for the evenings. Breakfasts on the veranda were great and we found ourselves still talking about it throughout the day. Whitney, the owner, has great knowledge of the best hikes around the area. Guarantee to have an unforgettable retreat if you choose this location. Enjoy.

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.

We stayed at the Penrose in late April 2013 for a short vacation. The B&B owners were out of town and we were greeted by Beverly - the house manager (when the owners are away). Beverly was a pure joy to meet and is so sweet. We were disappointed to miss the owners but Beverly made us feel welcome. The owners are very lucky to have her taking care of the property during their absence.

The location of this B&B is perfect. A tremendous view of the red rocks and a short, easy drive into Sedona. The specialty breakfasts on the veranda every morning were truly 5 star. I cannot say enough great things about this B&B. I would stay here again in a heartbeat if we ever return to Sedona. Just tremendous!!

We recently held our daughter's wedding at The Penrose. What an amazing and magical place!
The owners, Christie and Whitney, welcomed our family with open arms and treated us like we were a part of their own family. Every moment of our stay was relaxing and fun.

The Penrose will not only live up to your expectations, but will make you feel like you have found a home you want to return to over and over again.

We just returned from a weekend in Sedona, AZ. We are not usually bed and breakfast people but we wanted somewhere a little more personal and after reading all the great reviews we chose The Penrose B & B. We were not disappointed - it really did live up to our expectations.
Nestled right up against the red rocks every window had a amazing view and our balcony was perfect for a glass of wine as the sunset turned the mountains into a crimson spectacle. The room with private bathroom was spotless, pretty, and very comfortable.
Breakfast, served on the patio was to die for - French toast mounded with fresh strawberries and pecans one morning and tiny lemon ricotta pancakes with tarragon scrambled eggs and sausage the next. They cater to allergies and eating preferences as well. Coffee, tea, water, cold beverages and snacks were available round the clock. A binder with hiking, restaurant and local info was in the room along with bathrobes, big fluffy towels, soaps and lotions.
Our hosts, Whitney and Christy and their staff were so friendly and helpful ensuring our stay was a delight. We are looking forward to our next visit.

A perfect quiet location a few minutes from Sedona with magical views. The B&B is immaculately maintained and the hosts are a delight to talk to and can advise on the most suitable walks for you. The breakfasts were delicious anda perfect start to every morning. We will definitely return when in Sedona next.
