“Wish we could have stayed longer !”
Reviewed 4 May 2012

We spent one Beautiful evening and morning at the Penrose B&B and wished we had more time to stay. We felt we had just scratched the surface of what Whitney and Christie had so carefully prepared for us. From the moment we stepped through the front we were made to feel at home. The pleasure our hosts get from making their guests comfortable shows in every aspect of the B&B. From the spectacular setting, quality of the accommodations, thoughtfully prepared local information including a recommendation for dinner at the local Ialian restaurant that was out of this world to a expertly prepared breakfast on the deck. We can't wait for an opportunity to return.

The Penrose B&B is a lovely place to stay while experiencing all of the beauty of Sedona. We loved our room (the Javalina). The Popes pay attention to details - the snacks and drinks, homemade cookies, spectacular breakfasts, interesting decor in every part of the home, souvenir t-shirts and lovely patio areas to unwind at the end of your day, are just a few of the highlights. We really appreciated Whitney's help with maps and sites to see, even beyond Sedona! All the staff were friendly, helpful and yet you always felt you had plenty of space. GREAT place. Highly recommend!!

We felt so comfortable and relaxed at the Penrose B&B. The quality of breakfasts was a pleasant surprise. There were lots of song birds, plentiful snacks and drinks, books, DVDs, comfy bed, and so many nearby acivities. We appreciated the on-demand hot water that had a consistent temp and pressure. Whitney was amazing. He gave us route tips for a day excursion, contrary to the GPS. We will definitely be staying there again on our next staycation! Highly recommended.

Room Tip: The Javalina room had a spectacular view.

My wife and I spent 5 nights there. Whitney and Christie, and their staff, could not have been better hosts. Breakfasts were wonderful every day. We love to hike, so every morning after breakfast, Whitney helped us plan the days hikes. He even loaned us his hiking poles, and a cooler so we could have extra water. The Penrose, located in Oak Creek is away from the hustle and noise on "downtown" Sedona, but is close to everything. Some reviews have said the Mariposa room is small, we did not have any problems , we put the small suitcase in the closet on a rack, and the large one in the room. Would recommend this B&B to anyone staying in the area.

Room Tip: The Penrose B&B faces the east, so expect the sun to shine in the room early. Make sure the blin...

The Penrose welcomed us with open arms upon our arrival and the stay exceeded our expectations as the trip progressed, We purchased the romantic package and now know it was a GREAT deal ini comparison to what we would have paid for everything separately. They also celebrated in our engagement throughout the weekend with photographs and surprise rose petals in our room.

The breakfast and snack were AMAZING!!!! We will be going back -- the hospitality, value, and views CANNOT be beat!

Room Tip: Best views in the Coconino room!
