A small French country Inn on the banks of a winding stream through Oak Creek Canyon's rim. Tables wind through gardens and courtyard patios with water views. Charming and delightful! Gourmet meals and glorious brunches. A gift shop that you do not want to miss.

This is an awesome, holy place. With the view of the incredible rocks, below and surrounding you, who in their right mind could not believe there is a GOD/Creator?? There are pews to contemplate life, remembering The one who gave his life for you, with huge nails and a cross highlighted by reflected sunlight, making patterns of rainbows in its shadows. It is very modern and fits in with the architecture of its surroundings. You MUST see this, take a quite moment and breathe in the presence of Jesus.

We had the opportunity to go to a "native''s" home. The whole back of the house was glass walls overlooking a pool with jutting red/gold/orange rocks of Sedona rising like some grand mountain beyond. What an incredible view! The house, like most there, was stucco, no crown molding, but carved out cuppolas for sculpture works. Very open and tiled throughout. There is what they call desert landscaping with drip irrigation to water the plants, no sprinkler systems here. You could hear coyotes howling at dusk. Lots of retirees here from all over the world. I can see why. The weather is beautiful, your surroundings stunning and is is certainly off the beaten track. Artsy community.
