My wife and I stayed 4 nights at the Cozy Cactus B&B in late November. We stayed in the Desert Rendezvous Room. The B&B is located a 10 minute drive south of the city of Sedona in the village of Oak Creek. Initially we wondered whether staying out of the town itself would be a problem, however we quickly realized that the location wouldn't be an issue because pretty much everywhere in Sedona requires a drive (it's not a town that lends itself to walking to restaurants or shops very easily). Add to that the fact that some of the best scenery and trails are located literally out the back door of the B&B and any concerns we might have had about the location were quickly dispelled.
Our hosts, Mark and Carrie assisted by Caroline, were delightful and immediately made us feel welcome. They really want guests to enjoy their stay and go out of their way to make sure that everyone is having a good time. As many comments about the B&B attest, the breakfasts are fantastic. Mark serves up a different flavor muffin each morning to start, this is then usually followed by a fruit plate and then a warm entree (e.g. quiche). By the end of breakfast we were usually so full we needed to get in a hike right away to walk it off.
The Desert Rendezvous room is located on the front of the house, and while the room doesn't offer a view of the red rocks it does have a nice little patio area that is fairly private. Given the time of the year we visited and that for the vast majority of the time that we were in our room it was dark outside, the lack of view wasn't an issue for us. The room, although not large, is nicely stocked with guide books, fridge, wine glasses, etc. Additional provisions are available in the main part of the house.
For those who want to do some hiking the location is great due to the B&B's proximity to the Bell Rock trail. We also really enjoyed one of the lesser known trails located just outside the B&B's back door: the Made in the Shade trail. For those who want to do a little shopping while in town we'd recommend the amazing Son Silver West on route 179 about 5 miles north of the B&B and about 3 miles south of Sedona.
Overall a great stay in a spectacular location.
