“Great escape away from Phoenix heat!!”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

We just returned from a one night stay at the Butterfly Garden Inn. Although it went by pretty fast, it was just what we needed for a break away from the heat in Phoenix, and to enjoy the tall trees and beauty there. The cabin we stayed at (#17) was small but a good size for the 5 of us, after all we wanted to be there for the outdoors. We were right in front of the large grass lawn and picnic tables which was perfect for us, with a dog. We suprisingly enjoyed not having a tv for once, and played games and made smores on our grill right outside the door. It was so relaxing taking a early morning walk and the weather was perfect!! (mid 50's in the morning) and for summer thats a wonderful suprise. The bathroom was a bit small but manageable. We loved receiving our breakfast basket next to our door bright and early at 7 am. It was filled with delicous pastries, yogurt, granola, juices, and fruit and even treats for our dog! I though that was extra sweet. There was also a Keurig coffee maker in the cabin. The owner , Frank, was such a friendly nice guy, and we were happy to stay here and enjoy the relaxing beauty of it all. Would stay again!

I had pretty high expectations after reading the reviews on here and to my surprise not only did The Butterfly Garden Inn meet them but it also exceeded them. We were a little disappointed due to the closure of the parks and hiking trails but the setting of the property made up for it. Set on 10 acres of land we were still able to see the creek and enjoy some of the canyon's picturesque views.

We stayed in the Cuban Crescent which we came to find out was the original cabin and built in 1929. We had planned to utilize the kitchen for dinner but opted for the offerings of the onsite market. The menu, while small, still offers a good deal of variety.

Finally the thing that truly sets his inn apart is the incredible attention to detail and hospitality of the owners. We felt so welcome and hope to be back again soon.

We held our family reunion at the Butterfly Garden Inn. What a transformation this place has seen since I visited 25 years ago when it was Don Hoel's Cabins. With lots of cabins rented by our family, every single cabin was decorated in a delightful way, not to mention how clean they all were. On the last evening there, the owners Frank and Nicole prepared a delicious BBQ meal for the entire group. I've never tasted ribs so delectable! The grounds are lovely, the hosts are wonderful, and the food, particularly the wonderful breakfast baskets delivered to each cabin in the morning, are so special. What a wonderful family experience this was!

Room Tip: Oak Creek Canyon is a beautiful place. The Butterfly Garden Inn has access to Oak Creek and our kids...

This charming, historic property in Oak Creek Canyon was closed by original owners for several years. The new owners have done beautiful things to each of the original cabins as well as the surrounding green and forest areas. The hospitality of the owners – the Garrisons – is really above and beyond. I could not have been happier.

Room Tip: They have cabins that hold from 1 - 8 people. All the cabins are delightful.

We did not stay here since we were renting a nearby creek-side cabin but we enjoyed the restaurant food and the convenient store. They have amazing pizza and burgers and their fries and home made chips are the best! Additionally, these are the most friendly and accommodating people you will ever meet - they even let us "borrow" some spices we were seeking for a special dish we were making. Thanks and best of luck

The Butterfly Garden Inn is really an amazing place. The cabins are phenomenal - extremely clean with great beds and showers. The breakfast baskets so well-done. The service could not be more friendly and is tailored to each guest with extreme attention to details. All this in a breath-takingly beautiful location. I will definitely be back!

I cannot say enough good things about this beautiful and amazing property. The owners are exceptionally hospitable. The breakfast in the morning was delicious and thoughtfully planned. I've never enjoyed the service and location of a hotel quite like I did here. I was there with my family 1 year ago today and I can't wait to go back!
