“Perfect Penrose”
Reviewed 3 August 2011

The views from the Penrose are fabulous. You're right at the foot of Cathedral Rock and a short distance from Bell Rock and Courthouse Rock. The staff, including owner Whitney, are the friendliest folks and make you feel right at home. The breakfasts were gourmet and the "midnight snacks" were delicious treats. We had fun watching one of the many DVD's at the Penrose (Copper Canyon) which were filmed in the Sedona area. Rooms are lovely and very comfortable. Great amenities. I highly recommend this B&B. The best we've been to. - Steve & Molly

My husband and I came to Sedona for a quick getaway before he deploys this month. It was exactly what we needed! Whitney was so kind and accomodating to our needs and his wife was absolutely lovely. The homemade candies are amazing along with the homemade late night snacks and incredible breakfasts! Our room was clean, comfortable, and the view was absolutely amazing! Whitney took photos of us in front of all the gorgeous red rocks surrounding their home. They make sure to give you any maps or directions to wherever you want to go, and their goal is for you to relax and enjoy every second. The main rock their home is next to is known to have a vortex on top of it, and whether or not it's true, we left SO refreshed, positive, and renewed. It was exactly what we needed and cannot wait to go back!

The Penrose was the perfect place for us. The owner gave us a very helpful tour and advice about hiking. The whole place is beautifully decorated and we loved our balcony. The room was very comfortable--everywhere we looked, there was something beautiful. Breakfast was delicious and beautifully presented. The staff were very friendly, helpful and gracious. The owner even took photographs of us,and gave us prints and digital copies. The room comes with a binder loaded with information on restaurants and activities which was very helpful. We highly recommend it and we'll be back!

You've heard it over and over again, location, location, location. If Sedona is peaceful, this wonderful B&B in the Village of Oak Creek is tranquility unplugged. Red rock beauty, hiking of all abilities, and that great feeling you get when time just doesn't matter. Rooms are always pristine, cozy, comfortable. On our four visits to this property we have stayed in different rooms and they each have their own flavors and perks. Breakfast is quite good- unique presentations without pretension. Whitney, Christie and their "family" all are attentive- but are quite aware "Hey, it IS a b&b after all- enjoy the romance!" My wife really loves the perks- nightly bedtime snack and the stocked fridge with complimentary goodies throughout the day. Whitney also will help commemorate your stay with photos with you taken from beautiful vistas on the property. We'll most definetly be back!

We wanted privacy, a touch of elegance, good linens, convenient proximity to uptown Sedona and absolutely NO doilies, potpourri or country kitsch. Our needs were totally met ! And we were absolutely stunned that, indeed, the Penrose B&B absolutely snugs up right against the red rocks! We had lovely breakfasts out on the front patio, in the shadow of Castle Rock, for gosh' sake! The lizards were scampering, the parking lot was mere steps away, DVDs were available for our room if we were so inclined and the marvelous, hospitable owners/hosts were absolutely non-intrusive. Not sure at all how our stay could have been better. Even heard, high above us, what we took to be eagle cry. Lovely experience and highly recommended! Linda & Scott

We loved our stay in Sedona and greatly appreciated the hospitality that the staff at the Penrose extended to us. The Yavapai room was excellent with its view of Bell and Courthouse Rocks. After hiking the various rocks trails each day we greatly enjoyed the Jacuzzi each night! The breakfast meals that were prepared for us each day were delicious! We enjoyed the egg cup, the praline French toast with the pear fruit cup with yogurt and raspberry drizzle. We greatly appreciated your advise on the various trails and hikes and thank you again for the tee shirts and pictures. This was a very memorable trip for us as we totally enjoyed Sedona with the weather and views. Staying at the Penrose added to our very enjoyable experience and it was very hard for us to leave to come back to Chicago. Everyday since we have been back we have thought about the memorable times we had in Sedona. We look forward to coming back soon!!!

Thanks again for your hospitality!
