“Steve and Connie are excellent hosts. The property is very quiet and nestled near the Tlaquepaque shopping center. Plenty of eateries and desserts within walking distance. We didn’t see any other kids during our stay, but will say this place is kid friendly. Our family made s’mores nightly in the courtyard fire-pit. This was a huge hit with our grandkids. Connie and Steve know how important our four legged fur babies are and they are treated so well here. We stayed in the Grand Canyon room and it had a large private patio fenced tall enough where our dog couldn’t get out. Room was spacious enough to accommodate our 6’ tepee we brought along. We will most definitely be staying here again when visiting Sedona again. I wanted to send a special thank you to Andrea. She made us feel welcome and was very accommodating. Thanks again for such a great stay!”
