This was a wonderful place that exceeded anything I could have imagined! We are from Chandler AZ and we wanted to go to the Verde Canyon Railroad train ride, so I did tons of research and phone calls and searching the web...I have NEVER stayed at a B & B before, but my boyfriends Mom was visiting us for Thanksgiving from Alabama and we really wanted things to be memorable and wonderful for her....and guess what?? They were and even better than we hoped for. My 12 year old son was also with us so I had booked 2 rooms at Desert Rose B&B, with Sebastian via phone call..yes I definitely know we could have saved some money and stayed at a hotel but that's what we have always done, so we decided to go for a change. We were greeted by Nathan (who was awesome!) and shown around, he answered every question we had and truly made us feel just as welcome and comfortable A's if it was our own home. We were fortunate enough to be the only guests staying there that night so it was "our home" for the night, we watched TV, my son played on the computer, we just totally enjoyed this beautiful, home we were given the pleasure to stay in for the night, Nathan recommended an awesome place for us to eat, Nic's. Top notch place, fantastic food, and great service. The portions were huge, and for sure my eyes were way bigger than my stomach could hold :) we left there and found the church that Mom would be going to the next morning, then back to our comfortable "home". Had the most peaceful, relaxing and comfortable evening, and great nights rest. There truly is nothing at all that I could complain about, all of us were happy and just felt so much at home. We met Betty the next morning and she made us breakfast which she DID NOT have to do for us, seeing that it is a Continental Breakfast, however she did and not only that but she did it around our schedule...what worked out best for us!! And had great conversation with her as well, I felt as though we were all "friends" just enjoying the morning! By the way Nathan thank you for giving my son one of your PSP games, he really was happy and appreciative for that, and for charging his game too! You have no idea what it could have been like traveling the 2 hrs home with a 12 year old bored boy! Eeeek! This entire trip was once in a lifetime memory and extreme pleasure for all 4 of us, and we took tons of pictures to remember it all. I can't say Thank You enough to Betty, Sebastian, and Nathan for making it a wonderful trip! I am more than excited to say that we will no doubt be coming back, my boyfriend and I will be celebrating our 3 year anniversary and this is the exact place we want to come back to!! Betty knows the room I want :) The only bad thing I can say is that 1 night is definitely NOT ENOUGH time to truly appreciate the people and the Desert Rose. So next time we go we will be staying for more than one and hoping very much to stay at least 3 nights and enjoying all the area has to offer, I know we didn't even come close to experiencing the awesome area, and cool things to do. I made sure to tell several people on the Verde Canyon Railroad staff, and fellow passengers in our car about Desert Rose and even told Amber our bartender and guide on the Yuma Car about it, highly recommended it and will to anyone I come across in the future! All I can say is many Thanks to everyone at Desert Rose! See you soon for sure!! Nikie,Jeff,Cruz & Mom.....awesome memories for sure!!! :)
