Best Things About the Resort:
The friendly staff and on-site stables were pluses. The pool and Jacuzzi were great for evening swims.
All in all, I found this to be a very laid-back resort. It is very family-friendly. I left my son home on this trip but will definitely bring him the next time.
We used the resort as a home base as we hit the area hiking trails, but we also took advantage of the horseback riding. The trail rides were somewhat limited, but the wranglers were great.
I took advantage of the resort’s library (in a loft above the lobby) and enjoyed tickling the ivory on the grand piano.
Though we cooked most meals in our units, we took advantage of the barbeque grills one night, when they had a campfire and music, and it was a nice, relaxing evening. They had karaoke each night in the bar, which we attended one night (live music was advertised for that evening, but it never materialized). Since the bar primarily caters to guests, it was a fun, friendly atmosphere.
The Jacuzzi in the evenings (when the temperatures dropped) was a great place to meet other guests and trade advice on places to see and things to do in the area.
We stayed in a Canyon Creek unit, which looked a bit like a trailer from the outside, but once inside it was quite nice. We had a two-bedroom. The unit has a nice-sized living room/dining room. The kitchen was spacious and well stocked for cooking.
The bedrooms were also spacious and each had their own separate bathrooms. The bathrooms were stocked with Sedona Spa shampoo, conditioner, soaps, and lotions.
The Lodge staff stopped by daily to provide fresh towels and any other supplies needed. They were always friendly and helpful.
Tonto Creek runs past the unit, and there is a fitness trail along it. We walked along the creek and found some nice secluded spots to enjoy a book and the sound of the running water.
The resort also has a day spa and fitness center, but I did not use these facilities.
