“Supeb views and hosts - idyllic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2013

A perfect quiet location a few minutes from Sedona with magical views. The B&B is immaculately maintained and the hosts are a delight to talk to and can advise on the most suitable walks for you. The breakfasts were delicious anda perfect start to every morning. We will definitely return when in Sedona next.

Arriving I had high expectation having been to the Sedona area in November and having stayed at the 5 star resort Enchantment. The Enchantment tis more than double the price of this top notch Band B and if I was returning I would stay at the Penrose as it was spectacular. The views from our bedroom of Court House rock and Bell rock were soul inspiring.
The beds and linens were so comfortable it was hard to get out of our roomy bed. Breakfasts were so tasty and every day they were different. Even when we had to leave at 4:30am to go on a hot air balloon sun rise trip- fresh baked scones were waiting for us to take.
Beverly who served us breakfast is the sweetest classiest lady you will ever meet. She had lots of fun stories and was very warm in spirit. Christy and Whitney run a top notched bed and breakfast. When we left our arms were full of gifts from them –t-shirts, photos from our personal’s photo shoot with Whitney and warm chocolate chip cookies.
We left their driveway on our Harley and could have just as easily turned around and stayed. Thanks for the memories!!!

Sedona has always taken my breath away, but our stay at the Penrose B&B made our visit in May absolutely perfect! Our gracious hosts, fabulous room, incredible views and wonderful breakfasts made this particular trip to Sedona especially delightful and memorable. It takes a very unique establishment to compete with the natural wonders of Sedona and the Penrose does! A fabulous pairing.

My husband and I recently stayed at the Penrose and were pleasantly surprised by the warmth and hospitality extended to us. We were immediately made to feel at home upon our arrival. The next morning at breakfast outside on the front courtyard we were served a gourmet breakfast by Beverly who catered to our food requests in a friendly and gracious manner. After breakfast, Whitney, the owner, offered to take photos of us with the gorgeous rock views in the background. He then offered us a selection of photos to choose from and printed 3 beautiful photos as a keepsake for us to to take home. The next day we were sad to check out but Whitney surprised us again with Penrose B&B T Shirts to remember our delightful stay. We can't wait to go back. The Penrose B&B was absolutely the best B&B experience we have had in our many travels.

The Penrose B&B was in a beautiful location with breathtaking views of Sedona's signature red rocks. We were close to great hiking. The Bed and Breakfast was accessible, charming and the breakfasts were delicious.

Upon arrival my party was blown away with the amazing views and location of the Penrose. Our two bedrooms both had amazing views overlooking the stunning rock formations. Regarding the room, the beds were quite comfortable with the added bonus of memory foam; the bathroom well stocked and clean. A flatscreen tv adorned each of our rooms, but who needs tv when amazing views can be had with just the turn of a head or simple step out onto the amazing balcony. The staff were nothing short of courteous and extremely helpful with any and all inquiries. Whitney is a most gracious host that was able to provide us with daily itineraries that I will never forget. I've been to many B&B's, but have never had such an amazing experience and been at such peace. I'm almost regretting writing this review as I hope this place maintains it's "secret garden" aspect.

Room Tip: I'm sure all rooms have amazing views, and I can only attest to the Havelina and Kokopelli rooms...

If you've never been on vacation and looked forward to coming back to your "room" after a perfect day, you've never stayed at The Penrose. This is not booking a "room". It feels like the home is yours. There are always several other guests, but somehow walking in through the living room, we felt like we were "home" again. This was our second visit to The Penrose. I would just be repeating all the other deservedly wonderful reviews if I went further.
This is a gorgeous home. Unbelievable views. Fantistic food. (Where is my thesaurus?....). Extremely hospital hosts. Absolutely delicious vacation.
Ha Ha - I see tripadvisor asks if there is a "fitness room" on the premises, no, but look outside - everywhere your eye falls, is one stupendous God-given "fitness room" waiting for you and your hiking shoes!
As I told Whitney, the owner, the only thing bad about The Penrose is that we now use it to judge other Bed & Breakfast establishments. Not one holds a candle to this marvelous place.
Thank you Whitney, Christy and staff for THE most wonderful few days....

Room Tip: We have stayed in the Coconino - very private with a view straight out to the Coconino National Fore...
