Travel Blogs from Sedona
Well, we are here in the airport waiting to head back home. Today was a busy day, as expected. We scheduled in some last minute relaxing with a morning swim and Matt and I played some tennis. Tennis is a subjective term, as neither of us are very good. We had a mish-mosh of a lunch as we tried to eat up the left overs we had rather than throw them out. I will spare you the ugly details...
We finally pulled out of Los Abrigados Resort at 1:00 and ...
... prior to 1991, tourists could walk up to the arch, but in 1991, a group of visitors heard loud cracking sounds and at that minute, huge boulders and one giant piece of rock broke away from the already long arch, making it now a 306 foot span across the ground. No one was hurt, but the park service no longer allows hikers up next to the Arch. We hiked back to the truck and drove to Balanced Rock for our picnic lunch. We had seen a similar balanced rock at Mexican Hat, a ...
... by a glass of vino for Kaitlyn and an ice cold margarita for me. Once the food and booze was finished we decided to seek out Sedona’s own Oak Creek Brewery. We decided to go to the brew pub instead of the brewery because we were not sure if we were still hungry. Upon arrival we decided that beer would be all that we needed although the wings and salads that came out looked pretty good. I had their summer IPA which was decent but fell a little ...
With the time change, we were up by 5ish. we fueled ourselves with the complimentary breakfast spread before hitting the road for an Early morning hike to see the sunrise. Will dragged me up the trail, going double time because he claimed we "were going to miss the sunrise if you don't hurry up". I was ready to quit at the first ridge, but he kept me going over several more ridges until we reached the highest one.
It was the first sunrise I have ever seen (never ...
... line. My visit was complete!!
What I learned about myself:
It is so much easier to go with the flow, no stress, just know it will be handled and that I am taken care of - continue to trust
Reminder of how much I like being in a spiritual community
I like to hike and I can do it
Living in Sedona could be a great option for a year or two, started thinking about what I am looking for in a living space. Fun to play with the options

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.).
Not a bad place, just not what is advertised. Food is average at best and the last day actually chose to eat at the airport because the previous two days were underwhelming.
The problem is that it was relatively expensive for a place with only moderately competent housekeeping. When checking in they actually attempted to charge me $240.00 more that the confirmation had stated.
If you are going to spend $325-375 for a place go to the Enchantment Resort and take their B&B package, or the Amara. Believe me, they are far more friendly venues.
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............
Fabulous Inn with Fantastic Views
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
