Talahogan--experience Sedona's beauty, nature and peace...
...amidst sweeping vistas in all directions.  To the north, Boynton Canyon & Mogollon Rim...
...as well as Capitol Butte and Chimney Rock
To the west, Cockscomb Butte, Doe Mesa, Bear Mtn and even Jerome on distant Mingus Mtn
To the east, unobstructed vistas of Sugar Loaf, the Mittens and Schnebly Hill
And to the south, a panorama of Sedona's most famous rocks--Courthouse, Bell & Cathedral
The red rock vistas are magnificent at any time of year--after a summer monsoon storm...
...or winter snowfall
...and often with a constantly changing tableau of light and shadows throughout the day
The spacious deck looks out on to the full expanse of Sedona's eastern & southern horizons
...and in the glow of a setting sun offers stunning views of Cathedral and Bell rocks
From the bedroom terrace, peaceful panoramic vistas to the west and north
The large patio, shaded by juniper trees, has 360 degree views...
...to enjoy from both the eating area...
...and the 5-seat hot tub!
The 2 1/2 acres are extensively landscaped, primarily with native plants...
..with lots of color, high-desert fragrance--and bees!--from February on into November
The sound of running water in back and front ponds adds to the peacefulness of the garden
A front view of Talahogan in its summer dress...
...and its winter one
The great room has an open feel that connects and harmonizes with the outside...
Also a peaceful energy, thanks in part to soft earth tones and natural alder paneling
Though completely remodeled, it still retains the old fireplace & rustic charm of the old cabin
From the dining area are views of Red Rock Country virtually in all directions
The den offers a separate TV room with futon sofa, 46' smart TV...
...large desk and inviting sitting area...
...with magnificent views for your morning coffee or evening drinks
Boynton Canyon BR: A comfortable queen-sized bed, swivel easy chair...
...a spacious, custom alder desk...
...and a sweeping vista of the Wilderness Area to greet you in the morning!
Cockscomb BR: A comfortable queen-sized bed, large walk-in closet...
...and a magestic view of Cockscomb Butte to gaze out onto!
Sugar Loaf BR: King-sized bed, small frig, TV...
...separate bath with shower...
...covered deck and expansive views on to Sugar Loaf and Sedona's eastern horizon
The main bath has spacious counters and vanity...
...and a bath/shower with great views in BOTH directions
Given its openness, natural habitat and water, wildlife abounds at Talahogan...like this mule deer
Javelina herds come regularly to drink and graze...
...and steal seed from the birdfeeder!
Even an occasional bobcat strolls through...
...and now and then a coyote, though you'll hear 'em a LOT more than see 'em!
But you'll see lots of cottontails either at the pond or grazing on the Mexican primrose
Given the inviting habitat, you'll also see LOTs of wild birds, like this yellow-hooded oriole...
...and female ladder-back woodpecker
A western cardinal family makes its home on the property. Here the male...
...and his mate, which loves to bathe in the little creek
The bird feeder, of course, attracts them all, like these house finches...
...but it's the gamble quail who rule the roost!
The beauty, nature and peace of Talahogan is waiting for you...

Talahogan is a Navajo word for "home on hill." For the Navajo, the hogan is a sacred dwelling--a protection and refuge—grounded on a harmony with life and nature. Such is the spirit of Talahogan, a country home located on 2.5 acres on a tranquil hilltop miles away from the bustle of Sedona’s commercial and tourist centers. From this hilltop perch, you enjoy the most sweeping panorama of Red Rock Country--a creation of awesome natural beauty sacred to Native Americans--in a peaceful country setting where wildlife still abounds. Originally a hunting cabin built 80-90 years ago, the house has been renovated and expanded over the years to a stunning southwestern home without losing the unpretentious warmth of Sedona's rural past and the spirit of the hogan.

There is no greater joy than spending seven days of our Arizona vacation at Talahogan. The natural beauty of the place is unsurpassed . . . and that includes the landscape as well as every convenience the house offers. We prepared most of our meals together, and whether eating inside or out on the patio, the views were always relaxing...

Management response:

Maggi, thank you so much for this excellent review, the kind personal compliment as well as all our earlier correspondence! Reviews are always welcome, but so few guests--even those who profess LOVING Talahogan--take the time to pen one. Very delighted to know your grandsons enjoyed getting close to the wildlife that abounds up there; and if they got any good...

The inside of the house is very charming with stunning views from every window. The outside is surrounded by breathtaking views and gardens that welcome wildlife. One of my favorite characteristics of Talahogan is that...

My sister, 22 year old nephew, 84 year old father, and I stayed here for three nights. The home was absolutely perfect for us, with a bedroom for each of us, along with the futon in the den. There was an amazing view from big picture windows in every single direction! We so enjoyed having our coffee and breakfast outside...
