... to check out more ruins, and pictographs. We continued on through towards Palatki on old dirt roads through the desert. Seeing the ruins are a big deal with her....with her interest in anthropology. It's not as big a deal with me...but I like the rides through the desert, seeing places and things so different from where we live. These remote dirt roads take you to vistas not seen from the interstate......and that's ...
I woke up this morning in Flagstaff expecting to see the ground covered in snow. Disappointed, my first glance out the window beheld nothing but wet pavement. However, I didn't wait long, because not 20 minutes later, the snow storm was in full effect. There was already an inch of accumulation of the white powder and it was now coming down with authority. See the pics below.
My plan today was to go down to Sedona for some hiking. Sedona is about ...

So yeh, Death Valley was pretty much as you would expect - very sparse, very hot and very barren! It has quite a lot of elevation changes aswell, going from about 2000m down to below sea level. Some absolute mentalists do endurance races through there once a year. Even for me, those people are absolutely bonkers. We decided to blindly do a 10 mile return ...
... this genius(note major sarcasm) decided that tailgating me would somehow get me to go faster and get out of his way. He was so close to me that if I had had to hit my brakes he would have slammed right into me. As he passed he looked over at me and I just shook my head and gestured with my hands "What are you thinking?" I guess this set the guy off and he tried desperately to get me alongside him again, at one point ...
... beds, just what we needed. The receptionist was the rudest ******* ***** I'd ever met, so bad in fact it was funny.
We chilled for a few hours in front of the telly and then headed out to a nice Chinese bar and had some food followed just by one pint. Flagstaff seems lovely, very touristy but nice. The weather was a lot cooler also so that was nice. We headed back, watched more TV and went to sleep. Well needed after the last couple of ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Adobe Grand Villas Sedona
As a couple who has traveled extensively and quite comfortably throughout the US, Canada and Mexico, I can say our first class experience with Adobe Grand Villas was at the very top of the list. Not only do I appreciate their fine service and fabulous fare but my professional design background provides a keen eye and tremendous respect for the designing, planning and care that went into their suites. Our garden theme villa not only offered serenity and privacy but we couldn't help but be delighted with the tasteful yet surprisingly whimsical amenities. A clue or two: very unusual waterfall showers, lighting that doesn't quit, fabrics and colors which embrace you, and details that you will only hope to remember and duplicate at home.
The rooms at this hotel are incredible. We have stayed at many 5 star hotels in the US, Mexico, Canada and Europe. This hotel has rooms that are fit for a king, however the rest of this resort/bed and breakfast/hotel is lacking! The breakfast only lasts for a couple of hours and isn't much better than the Hampton Inn, also-if you don't get there when it is being served you are just out of luck. The innkeeper that we dealt with was very fake and prissy. Not exactly what you would expect from a $575 per night B&B. The location isn't very good, and the view from our room was not good either. The place shuts down at about 7, and they can't get out of there quick enough. The pool and spa are nice, but nothing to write home about. Basically, this is a great place to stay if you are planning on staying in your room all of the time, and do not care about services--otherwise, spend your money somewhere else!
Disappointing expensive new property
We stayed for three days at this new and very expensive property in Sedona. Although rooms and bathrooms are extremely large, decor is weird and unfunctional. For example, sinks and shower do not work well; entertainment system is incomprehensible; lighting is extremely poor, and to top it off, a lampshade caught on fire due to poorly design/placement of light bulb. Owner has mastered the art of absentee management. At least one innkeeper was unhelpful and rude. Breakfasts were mediocre. We tried to discuss our problems with the owner who remained completely unreachable. Don't believe the ads and hype and go elsewhere in this wonderful town.
Incredibly romantic and luxe!
Sometimes when I read a review composed of superlatives, it feels exaggerated, but the Adobe Grand Villas deserves all kinds of accolades. I echo what other visitors have said on this forum - the fabulously comfy beds, the stunning architecture and design, THE SPACE, the delicious meals and snacks. I liked staying where the staff knew my name immediately, but was not intrusive at all. Whether you believe in a subtle energy of vortexes or not, I think you will find that Sedona is really quite special, and the Adobe Grand Villas would be special anywhere in the world.
Stayed 3 days at the ADG in Jan 06, and was very impressed.
My husband and I stayed at the Adobe Grand Villas for our honeymoon. We were looking for a quiet, secluded place without a lot of crowds, and the Grand Villas met our expectations. The breakfasts were WONDERFUL and the staff was by far the friendliest folks we have dealt with. We did have one problem, which the staff tried their hardest to remedy. At the time we stayed there, they were completing construstion on some of the villas. The construction started very early, and went on until about 4:00 every day. Since this is an intimate property, the noise tended to ruin a nice, quiet day. The staff was willing to upgrade us to one of their newest and largest villas, which we declined (we stayed in the Cactus Flower, and it was BEAUTIFUL!). They also brought us up a tray of fruits, cheeses and chocolates to make things a bit better. In the end, the staff had communicated to the construction workers not to use the buzz saw at 8:00 in the morning (and gave us a $50 voucher to use in the giftshop) -- and the rest of our week long stay was nice.
Didn't want to come home......
After cancelling at Enchantment after reading the reviews, we booked the villa (Sunset) at Adobe Grand Villas. Wow! We certainly made the right choice. A beautiful room with a stunning view. A very friendly and helpful staff, great food and a great location. We spent two glorious nights here and didn't want to leave! Make sure to book the private dinner prepare by Chef Michael - one of the best meals we ever had and by far the most romantic.
After checking out many of the other spas and hotels, we will return to the Sunset Villa at Adobe again hands down!
Loved Adobe Grand Villas
We arrived late at Adobe Grand Villas after a really bad experience at the Enchantment resort earlier in the afternoon. We were fortunate the Adobe Grand Villas had a vacancy. They welcomed us warmly, and we were the first guests ever to stay in the brand new suite Antiquities (all of the rooms have different names).
The room was beautiful, bed was very comfortable, and the fireplace in the bedroom and a second one in the bathroom near the jacuzzi were great. The staff was great. The only complaint I have is that our room still smelled of paint since it was brand-new--but that was much less of a problem after our first night. Also, our room did not have a good view.
All in all, I givie this luxury B&B an A++.
Stay away from the Enchantment resort.
Stayed only one night at this Boutique hotel and while I can agree with the other reviewer about how pretty and nice it was, I have to be honest and I felt the price point was a little high. (paid just under 500).
I am honor to be the first to write a review for this magnificent Bed & Breakfast Boutique Resort. I have stayed at many luxurious hotels and resorts throughout the world and was not disappointed by this place. First I would like to explain the reason I chose to stay here. We had originally booked the Lonesome Dove room at the Adobe Graham Inn (the sister resort), but decided to check out this newer property. Once we saw the rooms and other facilities, we fell in love. We ended up choosing the Cactus Flower room. It was a tad more expensive than the Lonesome Dove ($40 per night more), but well worth it. This property is a lot newer and each room is very well decorated. Our room was upstairs and had a nice view of Thunder Mountain. We also liked the location of the resort better than the other one. It was closer to town. Also all of the villas were equipped with DVD players (rather than VCRs) and all had fireplaces next to the Jacuzzi tubs. The only downside that I could see was that they didn't have the mountain bikes available at the Adobe Villas.
