This will be my last post from our road trip to Austin, because after this we drove to Santa Fe (where I apparently unplugged completely) and then we spent a few days traveling between aunts and uncles houses.
But! Good news. Sedona was my favorite. I think I mostly loved it because it took me by surprise. I didn’t know what to expect of Sedona and it just completely blew me away — the red rocks, our B&B, the locals. It was all lovely and relaxing and just what I needed at that stage in our trip.
Sedona is breathtaking in the same way that the Northwest is breathtaking — it’s saturated in natural beauty. The red rocks were truly stunning, and so unique! I can’t say that I’ve ever seen anything like them before.
We arrived at our bed and breakfast, called Casa Sedona, early enough in the afternoon that we had time to really get settled in. The manager gave us a complete tour of their grounds.
I’ve stayed in quite a few B&Bs, but I can say confidently that this was one of the most hospitable, comprehensive B&Bs that I’ve ever visited. It felt like the manager and owner had thought of everything.
Like a windshield service station, which we really should have taken advantage of. Let’s just say those cross-country freeways weren’t doing my little car any favors.
Inside, both of the two buildings were beautifully designed with local flare and unique artistic touches.
I loved that they used tequila bottles as vases.
Here’s the dining room, where we ate our breakfasts. They had full service breakfast, including two delicious meal options and an accommodating server. Table for two, please. :)
They also had fresh-baked cookies (oatmeal raisin, which is my favorite), fruit, tea, glassware, and a wine chiller.
The manager actually showed us our room to point out all of the features, which included a black towel for makeup (genius) and red towel for wiping off your shoes, since Sedona has beautiful hiking.
They had even included bath salts with the jetted tub, which I of course took advantage of.
Tim and I ordered pizza in and ate it with wine on the upper deck, which was one of my favorite meals from our trip. The pizza was incredible and we were so, so relaxed. We headed inside when it started thunder storming.
We had such a relaxing, lovely time. Part of me wanted to park there for like a week and put off the moving process just a bit longer.
I hope you’ve enjoyed these posts about our trip! I’ll be back to regularly scheduled programming pretty soon, and I can’t wait to share a glimpse into our new house. This is my first time living in a house since my parents’, and I’ve had the best time decorating and fixing it up.
