Highs & Lows

  • These cozy cottages felt long term livable. Spacious, private and luxurious

  • Wood burning fireplaces, private porches and outdoor showers. What more could you want?!

  • So close to town, yet shaded and cooler than the rest of baking hot Sedona

  • All kinds of fun programming including stargazing and tree bathing. I didn't even know...now I must go back.

Important Bits

  • Type

    Luxury Inn

  • Vibe

    Bring your fancy pants. Upscale, but very relaxed.

    62 luxury cottages, 21 traditional lodge-style guest rooms and a stand-alone 5 bedroom Creekhouse.

  • Designed By

    PHX Architecture

    Yes, plus a lovely spa and free morning yoga!

  • Restaurant

    Creekside restaurant goes from casual daytime cafe to five star dining at sundown. Definitely worth the splurge, even if you're not a hotel guest.

  • Bar

    Yes with occasional live music

  • Minibar

    Good stuff. Also free wood on demand. For your personal fireplace.

  • Children

    Technically you could probably get a nice big suite and bring them, but you may wanna get a nice big suite and...not.

    Pricey, but worth it.
