Adobe Grand Villas, Sedona

The Adobe Grand Villas have a secluded feeling even though the Adobe-styled deluxe B&B is located a few minutes off roadway 89A leading into Sedona. The first thing that greets you through the archway is a fountain with sculptures and a pool/spa area.

The main lobby is a tastefully designed space to relax and enjoy fresh cookies, coffee, and tea (with savouries served late in the afternoon) as you ponder your next move.

A breakfast room and dining area are included in the main building. Each villa is unique and a retreat of its own. Our French Quarter villa made us feel as though we’d stepped foot into a quaint French village.

Faux windows with tiny awnings, a sitting area with pillows and blanket to cozy up in, right down to a kitchenette are detail-rich and make for a one-of-a-kind lodging experience.

Satellite radio as well as a TV and DVD player are well-hidden from view via a set of double doors meant to evoke another era. A guest computer in the main building is available free of charge, and free high-speed wifi is located throughout the property.

A sweet little wrought iron table for two is the perfect spot for enjoying freshly-baked bread in the afternoon. Yes, a bread machine is timed to your afternoon arrival/daily return from exploring the town, producing a mouthwatering smell as the bread nears its baking time. Gourmet jams, butter, a cutting board, knife, and ziplock bag are at the ready for taking the bread out on a late afternoon hike if desired. Other indulgences include a prix-fixe dinner prepared by chef Michael Merilli.

After a day exploring those amazing red rock formations, we greatly looked forward to coming back to our villa. One half of the villa contains the bathroom area with a spacious clothes closet, sinks, a walk-in shower, vanity table and separate toilet. At the end of the spacious area is the jetted tub and fireplace. We admired how much attention and inspiration went into creating this space.

Hanging lanterns above the bed and table add whimsy and atmosphere, especially at night. There are two gas fireplaces: one in the living room and the other near the jetted tub. So romantic! All the doors are of reclaimed wood; the villas are created by designer Steve Berman.

The staff are very friendly and accommodating. All 16 villas vary in design and detail. I was led on a tour by Michael to check out some of the other styles.

The 16 villas (each 850 square feet or larger) have seen their fair share of celebrities, counting Lenny Kravitz, Olivia Newton-John, Melissa Etheridge and Siegfried & Roy amongst its guests.

A full service spa offers rejuvenating massages, healing sessions, reflexology, Reiki and other services all available by appointment.

This family-run B&B was one of the highlights of our stay in Sedona, especially with a mattress so difficult to leave in the morning, offering by far one of the best sleeps we’ve had in recent memory.

The only things to wake us up in the mornings were the Sedona sunshine and sweet sounds of yellow and red finches in the trees outside our door. And Chef Michael’s gorgeous full breakfasts, including French-born Jacqueline’s homemade croissants and muffins.
