This was our first visit ever to Sedona, so I spent a good deal of time researching the many different properties online. I read a lot of reviews, and finally settled on the Penrose B&B. Needless to say, I was happy to find I had made a good choice. (And more importantly, my wife was thrilled with the selection!). From the moment we arrived in the foyer, we could tell that we were in a comfortable and inviting place. We were greeted by Whitney and were made to feel right at home. We arrived later in the afternoon, so were were looking for some ideas on where to go for dinner that night. Whitney was very helpful in providing suggestions on where to go. In addition, when we got to our room, we found a binder with lots of helpful information on local restaurants, sightseeing, and things to do in and around Sedona.
We found the room (Mariposa) to be spacious, clean and comfortable. And the view from our balcony of Courthouse Butte and Bell Rock was quite impressive as well (See photo)
Our breakfast each day consisted of a fresh fruit compote and a hot entree, which were always delicious and nicely presented. We enjoyed the warm pineapple compote so much that my wife has already made it since we got home. The Penrose is very conscious of special dietary needs and will go out of their way to prepare something special if needed. Fortunately, neither my wife or I have any restrictions, but it was nice that they asked about it.
The Penrose offers several different package deals (details about each are on their website).
We booked the Grand Canyon Sunset tour package, which consisted of a two-night stay and a day trip to the Grand Canyon. Since we have never seen the Grand Canyon before, it was a great way to see the South rim. I would definitely recommend it.
If you plan to stay around Sedona, there are many, many beautiful places to hike and climb. Whitney is a great resource and very knowledgeable about the places to hike. He has trail maps and passes available, and is happy to spend time with you to pick trails that will meet your needs with respect to scenery, difficulty, etc.
Overall, we were very pleased with the Penrose B&B, and would definitely stay there again!
