“Terrific Vacation”
Reviewed April 27, 2006

I have just returned from AZ where I stayed at the Junipine for 5 days with my husband and teen-age daughter. Everything I had read on Trip Advisor about this resort was accurate and we were not disappointed. We all thought it was great. The setting is beautiful. We were in Cabin 13 which is almost right next to the main office but it felt very private and we had a nice view of the mountains and surrounding forest. Although we were not right on the creek you could still hear and see the water from the spacious deck. The unit was also spacious with a king sized bedroom and bath downstairs and a large bedroom with two queen sized beds upstairs. There was also a separate bathroom upstairs. My daughter enjoyed having her own space as well as her own private deck upstairs. We had two fireplaces (one in the master bedroom) and three TVs, as well as a full kitchen. We also opted for a hot tub and we used it every day. When we first arrived I thought it seemed a bit far from the town of Sedona, but it never took us more than 15 minutes to get into town and the scenery is spectacular. I actually enjoyed being away from the hustle and bustle. My husband fished in the creek and there is a variety of hiking trails near by. We ate in the Cafe twice and I thought the food was good but not great. The desserts were very good. We had a great dinner at the Heartline Cafe in West Sedona and I also thought the Orchard, right in town, was pretty good. If you are looking to buy some local jewelry, I would recommend the tables set up at the Dairy Queen between Sedona (on 89A) and the Junipine. Garlands Jewelry, also on 89A, has really fabulous jewelry and the sales people are very knowledgeable and helpful.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Junipine house 49. We had a 2 BR unit which had 2 beds upstairs and a King bed downstairs, 2 full baths, kitchen, living room and 2 fireplaces. A great place to stay while traveling with 2 teenagers where we could all spread out. We had a view of the creek and bluffs. With a price of $250/night, it was the most expensive place we stayed at, but we were able to cook several meals which saves a lot. The restaurant was busy, so we just had them deliver our meal one night and ate with the fireplace going. It is off the beaten path, but that is what we wanted. I wish we could live here!

Stayed in House 31 for two nights April 9 & 10 and just loved it. Traveling with two teenagers, a couple and a single. We were very, very pleased with the accommodations. Beds were comfortable, a fire was laid in the fireplace, the jacuzzi was heated up and ready to go, everything was clean and tidy and very spacious. This is the way to go if you're traveling with kids! Even though we did not have a "creek view" the view from our patio was beautiful. The only thing to know about this resort is that it is a good 15 minutes of winding road driving to get into town so get your groceries, etc., before you're ready to settle in.

This place was better than we expected. We had a great view of privacy, quiet, trees, and birds singing. Our "house" as they call it, was clean, well planned, and had everything we wanted, namely, a hot tub, 2 fireplaces, a HUGE bedroom and bed, a big tv, 2 nice couches, a wonderful full kitchen with all the dishes and pans, and it was perfect. It was expensive though. The staff was friendly. The maid did her job well and I felt bad we didnt have any money left to leave her a proper tip. We had spent all our money on this honeymoon and resorted to eating Dairy Queen the last couple days. Oak Creek Canyon is WAY better than Sedona, and the Junipine was incredible. Sedona is full of yuppies and people who think they dont stink. We enjoyed the views as long as we didnt talk to anyone. We drove ourselves instead of talking the "4 wheel drive" jeep trips. The "primitive" roads were marked as such, but when we drove on them we laughed. This is what Sedona calls a primitive road HAHAHAHAHAHAA!!! They should see the roads in Alaska. Our main freeway should be called primitive! We also didnt expect to have to pay everytime we wanted to park somewhere. You had to have a pass of some sort just to pull over to have a look. So we parked, had a quick look, then drove on real fast to the next spot. Every place you had to have a different sort of parking fee pass. I cant figure this out. We think its a way to get more money out of folks. They didnt accept our State Park pass fee that we paid to get into Slide Rock. And something about not accepting Golden Pass. SO let me tell you about Sedona and the tourist traps. You cannot walk down the street without being harrassed about buying a timeshare. We kept saying NO. They kept harassing. This should be illegal. Dont stop anywhere that says "Free tourist info" because its just a ploy to get you to buy a timeshare. There is no way we can afford a timeshare living in Alaska, when tickets to Arizona are $1000 each. So then the timeshare people said they would get us free tickets. Then we looked at the contract and it said "tickets only valid in the continental US". Then we said no thanks. Then they wanted us to give them $20 to sign us up. How about you give US $20 to sign us up? Timeshare people, please stop harassing the tourists! So we went back to the quiet Junipine, and spent our days enjoying ourselves, as newlyweds, and our nights in that hot tub. The fire crackled and we fell asleep in the big bed. The odd thing about this place was that they charged 75 cents per phone call, even 800 numbers. For a $260 per night stay, dont you think they can throw in a couple free phone calls? So we walked down to the pay phone and saved a couple bucks to spend on that Dairy Queen burger. The food in the restaurant there is average and a bit expensive.

After reading the reviews of the Junipine resort on TripAdvisor, I booked immediately for my 2 night stay in Sedona. Traveling with 6 people, Junipine sounded like a perfect place for us.
Upon arrival, we found the Junipine to be a condo/townhouse type accomodations which we expected from reading other reviews. We were assigned unit 46 which is a 2 bedroom + loft with a private hot tub on the private deck. The unit is spacious and we had plenty of sleeping options.
The master bedroom includes a King size bed and overlooks the hot tub and Oak Creek Canyon. The Canyon is very wooded in this area so we didn't have much of a review of the river below but we did have a view of nature from this bedroom. The second bedroom contains 2 Queen beds and has a view of the parking lot. The loft is cute (although the spiral staircase used to access it is very narrow and quite steep) and containsd 2 twin beds plus a daybed with trundle (room for an additional 4 people). The kids loved the loft area.
The unit was very clean but the decor was fairly outdated. Also, the beds were all very hard.
The hot tub was one of the reasons we rented at Junipine and it did not disappoint. The hot tub was very large and extremely clean. Our kids really enjoyed playing in it each evening. Also, the back deck was very spacious and would have been nice to utilize if we had stayed longer or had better weather.
We were there during a very bad rainstorm and noticed that unit 46 had two fairly significant leaks. The skylight in the loft had a very bad leak. The other leak occurred in the middle of the family room. The water dripped in and landed on the ceiling fan then ran down the blade of the fan to drip on the couch.
We enjoyed our stay at the Junipine but we would not stay there again if we travel to Sedona.
The Junipine resort is quite far out of town and we would rather have been closer to the action. It took 15 minutes or so to get into town and that was if you didn't get behind any slow pokes on the dark and winding canyon road.

Junipine Resort rests on the banks of Oak Creek, about 10 minutes outside of Sedona. The setting is pictuesque, the cabins are clean and cozy, and the restaurant serves excellent food.
Car sized boulders are parked along the happy creek, perfect for ambitious "rock climbing" kids of all ages. Picnic tables overlook the creek, waiting for the tired and hungry adventurers. Looking up to the canyon bluffs, one imagines wild west Indian lookouts.
Wood cabins sit near each other, but situated so they feel private. Our cabin was perfectly clean, had a modern kitchen, and lots of room. Kitchen had granite counters and all necessities. The living room fireplace had a giant log mantle and wood already stacked in the pit for a fire. A flat screen tv was over the mantle. The master suite had a lovely bee-hive fireplace and private deck sliding doors. The large wood decks have a privacy wall between the cabins. The area was very serene, you could hear the creek and birds.
For dinner, we had grilled salmon and vegetables, salad, shrimp cocktail, baked potatoes, and warm chocolate cake with ice cream. The restaurant was clean with cheerful service.
The office has some necessities available for purchase, such as maps of hiking trails, bottled water, and snacks. You can rent movies from them, at about $6 a pop. The only improvements they could make is to rent the movies complementary and remove the surcharge for local calls.
Junipine Resort is a fabulous choice for couples seeking quiet romance or families with children needing room to run. If we return to the area, we would stay there again in a second.

My wife and I took our moms to sedona for a spring get away. We are from the northeast so we thought we would get some sun.. We were wrong. We ended up with 14 inches of SNOW in Sedona. However, we always wanted to see the red rocks covered with snow, soo it was a true blessing. Our moms loved the Junipine Resort. We had a Creek side cabin and it was very spacious, clean, and homey. We have stayed at Enchantment and the cabin at Junipine was just as spacious. The Junipine Cafe serves very good food and it is reasonably priced. We will be back to Junipine.
