We went up to Cottonwood to explore the local wineries and escape the Valley heat in June. We learned it isn't that much cooler in Cottonwood, but it was a nice getaway and the Desert Rose ended up being a nice place to stay. We had a winery tour 2-night package for the Deluxe Room. I highly recommend staying in that room. It is the only one that has an ensuite bathroom. It looked like it was newly renovated and very nicely decorated.
We were somewhat worried as we drove up the street and saw the old trailer houses and junkyard/home next door, but once you enter the gates of the Desert Rose, it was nice. The place is quaint and charming. It wasn't the fanciest B&B we've been to, but it was very comfortable and Sebastian was very nice.
The llamas and goat were fun to watch.
Our room was very nice, the bed and pillows very comfortable and the bathroom was nicer than our home master. There was a mini-fridge in the room which was quite nice. The only issue was the A/C in the room wasn't working. The other rooms in the house seemed fine, but there was a definite difference in temperature stepping into our room. Thankfully, it cooled off in the evening to make it fine for sleeping. There was a nice rock waterfall outside our window that offered a soothing sound.
Our first morning the proprietor wasn't there, but provided breakfast cards for a local diner. It was very good food and a nice surprise. We returned to the B&B and the proprietor drove us around to 3 local wineries for a tour at one and tastings at the others. It was nice to not worry about driving for the tastings.
Our second morning we had to hurry away in the morning to meet family obligations so we weren't able to enjoy the breakfast he was setting up.
I would definitely consider staying here again as long as we were able to get the ensuite.
