We stayed at the Penrose from Aug 3-5. We had the greatest experience staying there. Joy was wonderful and made sure that we got the horseback riding reservations that we had been trying for a week to get. The room (the kokopelli) was beautiful and had the most amazing views out of the many, many windows. The bathroom had a jacuzzi tub which was so fantastic. The towels were soft and plush, and there were two robes for us to use. The bed was neither too soft nor too hard as other reviews have stated (personal taste, I believe).
There were DVD's and CD's that we could choose to listen to. There's a baby grand piano in the living room, and a telescope for your use. There were always little chocolates and the kitchen had fruits and drinks available at all times.
Breakfast was the highlight of each morning. We were served amazing meals. I am a very picky eater, and I tried some things that I would not normally have chosen. So good. We had a little hummingbird that hung out with us the first morning on the deck. There were bunnies and quail and various wildlife all around the area.
When we got home from horseback riding on Saturday night, there was a snake. We didn't get a good look at it because it was so dark and we just hurried past it...but that was a fun adventure.
Whitney was very kind and made sure we were comfortable. He took pictures of hubby and I and gave us a copy upon our departure. We also got t-shirts and lemon bars. :)
All in all, it was the best lodging experience we've ever had, and are definitely going to return to the Penrose.
