This place is wonderful. It was peaceful and quiet and just perfect. It was everythine I expected. It was nesteled on the hillside in the trees. There are 50 units-- each decorated by their owners a little differently. We stayed in #11 (Forest View). This was an end unit with a hugh wrap-around deck. Mind you, they were built in the late 80's, so the decor and construction are of that period--Cedar siding, inside dark paneling, and sinks and vanities of that period. I was not expecting a snazzy resort--that is not the Junipine. We were two couples, so we each had a bedroom and a bath that were separated by a kitchen and foyer. So, we couldn't hear each other snoring or anything else. We split the cost ($300 for weekends and $250 for weekdays), That works to about $175 per couple per night. Where can you stay in Sedona with two large bedrooms, full maid service--cleaned every day, separate vanity and full bath in each bedroom, fully stocked kitchen, eating area, great room with firplace--including wood, loft with additional sleeping area, additional fireplace in master bedroom, large deck overlooking a moving stream and plenty of trees?
I loved the fact that the area called Oak Creek Canyon, was about 8 miles from all the tourists of Sedona. We used the Junipine as a base for our trip--it is 2 hrs. to Grand Canyon (a lovely drive), 2 hours to The Painted Desert (a must see) and 15 mins. to Sedona proper.
We ate in the little cafe that is part of the property. The decor is rustic--wooden floors, dark paneling, hugh eating deck, plus eating inside. The food was good, but not gormet, but very reasonably priced, and definitely convenient. This is the only restaurant in all of Oak Creek Canyon! We were smart and stopped at a little roadside market for some staples--milk, cereal, bagels, butter, jelly, coffee, and some junk snacks. It would be a good idea to get food at the Supermarket in Sedona, but we never made it there, besides--I didn't want to cook anyway--it was a vacation.
If you want something a little different with quiet walking trails and away from all the touristie stuff in Sedona, I recommend the Junipine. I would definitely go there again! Maureen Fields
PS There is no air conditioning, but it was cool in the evenings and the mornings and we weren't hot at all. It might be a bit warm in the summer. However, their busiest season is July 4th to Labor Day! So, I guess people find it okay!
