Travel Blogs from Sedona
We headed out this morning towards Sedona, and red rocks country. I had been warned that the hippie/vibrating crystal/cosmic healing crowd were in Sedona.....but I had no idea. I could have tried to clean house using logic and science....but it would have been like shooting rats at the dump. Every time you shoot one rat, 3 more pop up. They were everywhere.
I was driving and couldn't take a pic...but one business ...
Today we took a hike to Devils Bridge, a natural rock bridge. Trail head was off an off-road, which required a special vehicle. Tim had a jeep and thought he could drive on it but didn't have enough clearance, more like we weren't comfortable enough driving the full length to the trailhead so we parked it part of the way and walked the rest of the way. It was a great ...
... drive Justine and her friend back in Downtown - wasn't a problem, although when he tried lip reading me, whilst driving, did swerve pretty far across and onto the wrong side/oncoming traffic. We both mutually agreed to let him concentrate on the road after that ;)
So the next day, I did get dropped off at the strip and had the full day to walk around and take in Vegas. Imagine all the stereotypes people have but worse! I'll go into this in more detail in the next blog, but yeh ...
... well worth it.
Easy day around Sedona, tried to go to Slide Rock but queues for the car park so gave it best. Sunday not the best day for sightseeing.
After a stint in the pool Mel and I went on the Bell Rock Trail. Weather overcast so not great.
Alas, no hummingbirds, perhaps tomorrow?
Tomorrow, The Grand Canyon :-) ...
... for us as they arrived after us and got their food sooner! Hey ho, was proceeded with a few more beers and had a walk around. Found a rather large but empty bar, it started to rain and hail like I've never seen before, places were flooding and we couldn't go anywhere so I offered to cut all the limes for the bar, which I did. Was quite funny actually just sitting there cutting a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews A Sunset Chateau Sedona
Great place...horrible breakfasts
The Sunset Chateau was a quiet, nicely decorated, and spacious B&B with a great view of the rocks all around. The friendly owners also made sure you were comfortable and try to attend to your needs.
One complaint is that the breakfasts were awful. Not sure who was to blame, either the cook or the guests not accustomed to their "fusion" dishes, but some of it was just inedible. Hoping that they've since hired another chef. As a suggestion, maybe a more varied buffet table would be better.
Finally, A Home Away from Home!!!
I love Sedona and have been going there for years. But until now, I haven't found a place to stay where I felt comfortable, pampered, among friends and ... in paradise! I had a room with a view of the majestic big red rock mountains which was fantastic. In the morning, I would often sit out on my balcony, reading a great book, and listening to the sound of rippling water -- Now that's a vacation! (Yes, they even have a "stream" running into a pond, as well as a heated pool and jacuzzi.)
And to top it all, the breakfasts were varied and top notch. Best of all the family that runs the chateau made me feel like family too. I can't say enough about it. Thank you for making my vacation just right. And of course, I'll be back!
Beautiful Views, Friendly Hosts
We stayed in a luxury 2 room suite which was very nice with a kitchenette, fireplaced living room, bedroom and large bathroom. The place was very clean, although it would be nicer if all the decor was done in the Western theme rather than a mismatch of pictures, nick nacks etc. The dining area is a bit over done with too much "stuff" around. Once again it would be much nicer if only the Western decor was used to stay in keeping with the AZ atmosphere. Inn keepers were very pleasant and accomadating. Breakfast was fair.
A Perfect Escape
The oversized accomodations, the breakfasts, the hospitality, the views.....it all just added up to a wonderful weekend getaway.
Nice view, terrible food
We stayed in the Sunset Chateu one night and really enjoyed our large room with a beautiful view of the red rocks. Our toddler was entertained by all the room decorations and the sculptures in the garden courtyard. The only disappointment was the breakfast (a version of huevos rancheros) which was absolutely terrible. I think that the eggs were powdered. The rice was soupy and the salsa tasteless. The coffee was undrinkable. The waitstaff was unaccomodating and ungracious. My 1.5 daughter was not brought anything to eat.It is not difficult to make huevos rancheros and breakfast is an essential component of a bed and breakfast. The sunset chateau needs to hire a more competent cook.
The website has great photos of their rooms and purported views. Do not be fooled. What they do not show is that just down the hill is the "Sunset Trailer Park" and the main building ( and most expensive "villa" is right to the road. Trucks and trollies going up and down all night.).
We stayed here as a family of 4 for 3 nights. We had a lovely clean garden room, which had a separate sitting room with TV, and a small kitchen, and clean bathroom with a good shower. Breakfast was excellent, and you can sit on the terrace to eat, with a wonderful view. Our children loved the pool, and the hot tub was great. The view from the terrace above the pool is just amazing. The B+B was very quiet, but was an easy drive to restaurants nearby, as well as supermarkets. Sedona is lovely, and a great base to visit the Grand Canyon.
We would definitely stay here again.
I spent two days here and was just thrilled with the views ( from every room) and the wonderful breakfast. The rooms are clean and colorful. The staff are helpful and engaging. Would stay again and again............
We just returned from 5 nights at Sunset Chateau with our 8 year-old and it was one of the best B&Bs we have ever stayed in. Each room is a full suite and they have two kinds. Luxury suites, which are a little more fancy in decoration and have jacuzzi tubs and computer hook-up and a kitchenette and country suites which are also beautifully decorated and have a full kitchen. We stayed in country suite #19 and it had gorgeous views of the red rocks - capital butte and coffeepot. Each morning they serve you are great breakfast in their dining room, beautifully decorated and again those wonderful views. They have a lovely outdoor patio, as well as a large common area outside with hammocks, picnic tables, a pond and a waterfall. It is in west Sedona and easy access to everything. It is very quite. We never heard our neighbors. And it is so reasonably-priced. Our country suite was $149 and the luxury suites were $199. I think the rates go up $10 starting April 1. This place is a true gem. I looked at almost all the places to stay in Sedona and was thrilled with Sunset Chateau.
A friendly family, a pleasant experience
My wife and I visited in June 2003 during our 25th Anniversary trip to Arizona. The family and staff were very friendly and Breakfast on the patio area shared with other guests was a fun start to every day.
Cabins were clean and views spectacular. Loved it and will visit again
