Best Things Nearby:
The beautiful red rocks are everywhere, even able to be viewed by opening the curtains and walking out onto the golf course. The Grand Canyon is an easy day trip, as are the Verde Canyon Railroad and the Slide Rock State Park.

Best Things About the Resort:
The resort's location is excellent. It is just on the edge of town, so nighttime is peaceful and quiet, yet town is a few minutes away. The resort is set down in a small valley-like setting beside a river on a pretty nine-hole golf course. The staff is friendly and helpful.

Resort Experience:
Except for the golf course and the pool, the resort doesn't have many activities of its own. There is a nice grilling setup with tables and chairs beside the river, but this is a resort to launch from or to just relax and enjoy the setting in. Sitting out in the lawn swing on a beautiful morning does a lot for a hurried mind. There are activities at sister resorts in town, and one we enjoyed a lot was stargazing through the telescope used to discover the Hale-Bopp comet. Its inventor and his wife presented at the event, which made it quite informative. There was also a free flute concert from a man who made all nine flutes, from which he played amazing music.

The studio unit we had at the resort was more than adequate for our needs, with an extra dressing area and a wonderful Jacuzzi tub. Since we were there in the summer, the fireplace just added ambience, but would be very nice in winter. The kitchen area was compact and very useful. We had shopped in Phoenix on our way there, but Sedona is very modern and has two nice grocery stores.

Our unit was well-stocked with the little extra items like paper towels and dish soap. We got maid service midweek, which was appreciated.
