We stayed two nights in the Mariposa Room. The only draw back I have to mention is that our room was very small. The queen size bed took up practically the whole room leaving very little space to move around.
We really liked the location of The Penrose even though it was not particularly close to anything we wanted to do. However, the Coconino National Forest is so beautiful we really didn't mind the 20 minute + drive to get to where we wanted to go. The setting for The Penrose is very quite, peaceful, and removed from the madness of downtown Sedona.
We've stayed at a fair amount of B&B's and my #1 criteria for rating a B&B is the quality of the breakfast. The Penrose gets 5-STARS! It was unique (something I wouldn't fix myself), delicious, attractively presented, and truly gourmet. The patio setting, at the foot of the red buttes, was inspiring. You would never guess you were in a residential neighborhood. We were delightfully entertained by desert squirrels, red birds, and lizards.
Another nice surprise--the proprietor offered to take a commemorative photograph of us against the beautiful back drop of Bell Rock. He edited it and printed it on photo paper while we checked out. Oh, and you also get to pick a souvenir T-Shirt.
We will come back again only next time we will opt for a larger room.
