We have three beautiful and large Shepard dogs (Great Pyrenees, Hungarian Kuvas, and half Pyrenees and Marima), that stay out with the goat herd for protection. They are very friendly and our guests can have a guided tour of the animals generally in the morning.

Other things to note

We respect the belief systems and spiritual practices of all. Our guests range from Mormons to Muslims here at the Sedona Center of Vedic Culture. We practice Vaisnavism, or worship of Lord Visnu. We accept the teachings of Lord Chaitanya, an Avatar of the Supreme, and follow the preaching of our Guru, His Divine Grace, A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami, Srila Prabhupada.

Through practice of simple living and high thinking, we aim to always remember God and never forget him. That being said we invite everyone from all walks of life to stay with us and feel comfortable with themselves and others, knowing the ultimate goal is self-realization.

Also the Sedona Center of Vedic Culture is a non-profit organization, and for the suggested rates you see listed for a room at our Red Rock Asrama, we will supply you with a tax deductible receipt for the amount you pay. We appreciate your support.

They have a farm out there, animals are so cute and friendly. You can even have fun with the goats! Bedroom is very clean with comfy bed. No doubt! Will definitely recommend to all my friends if they are visiting Arizona. One thing could be better is the wifi connection but overall it's a very good experience!!

This is accurately portrayed in the information in their site. We were fully cognizant of all the rules and broke only one--which at the time we were there was not indicated on the page: coffee. I should have, perhaps, figured it out but there you are. Because I didn't drink it when I realized caffeine was not acceptable even though I had been told to go ahead. I wanted to be respectful. Unfortunately the fact that it was still around created an expensive spill on their comforter. The $60 cost of dry cleaning was deducted from the $95 security deposit which was completely fair. We we due for reimbursement of $35. Everything was square in the end.

These folks were an awesome couple and we appreciated their company. The fact that they were both deeply spiritual or religious, made it even more fun for us to host them, here at the ashram. - dasarath

I want to start this review off first by stating that I am a very spiritually open individual. My father practiced Buddhism for over 30 years and I am well-versed in many types of religious beliefs . My initial impression of this rental space was that it would be on a ranch in open space and only knew that the owner was interested in the Vedic/Indian culture based on her profile that I read prior to arriving. . The space itself would be nice except for it is very cluttered with lots of shrines and spiritual idols, as well as with dishes and lots of random stuff on a common area patio. They have many House rules including not bringing any meat or meat products into their home which is totally understandable, however they also request that you do not bring alcohol, wine, caffeine, or tobacco. This home is located 4 miles from an area of vineyards which is why we chose to stay there. We wanted to be close and out in the open space, when we arrived we asked for an early check in at 4:30 PM as the initial check in was 6 PM, in my opinion that is late by industry standards. So our initial arrival did not start off well, Additionally the dynamic in the household was offputting and different then any experience I have had through Airbnb previously. Overall the hosts are nice people and take great care of their animals which were delightful to be around I just think they need some help in making this space a little more friendly to all people, and not have such high expectations of guests to abide by their cultural standards and rules. Did I mention the 10 PM curfew? Totally fine but again just another thing that I felt was offputting. My boyfriend and I came to visit to have an enjoyable and relaxing weekend and felt very confined and restricted by all of these rules. This place is great if you are into that culture but I would not recommend it otherwise. Lastly the shower in the room that we stayed in did not even have enough pressure for us to wash our hair, it was disappointing to say the least. Also had a parking issue with another guest staying there, they have a normal size driveway however when we try to park side-by-side with another guest that was staying there we were told to move our car to the bottom of the hill for some unknown reason. Again another off putting scenario. There is also a rule of no shoes in their house which is totally fine but just not something you expect when you were going on a weekend getaway. It should be noted also that our hosts were not ready at 4:30 when we arrived even though they made a big deal about ensuring that we arrive at 4:30 they were not ready until 530 so we sat at their house...

These folks are the only ones that have even tried to demean the India spiritual culture of our ashram. This place is not for those who want to spend time at the local wineries. It is a peaceful place and most people that stay with us, come under the exact impression that is IS an ashram or monastery, and they understand that residents rise early for meditation and other spiritual practices. Thus the 10pm curfew. We are not in the hotel "industry" as this guest catogorizes us, but are trying to offer a humble residence and maybe even a spiritual experience for the Arizona pilgrim. They should have studied the ins and outs of our postings, before choosing us to save a few bucks perhaps on renting a room. If you who read this review, want to get a more welcoming idea and opinion from our more than one hundred guests of the Vedic Ranch facility, we suggest that you read the other reviews, even those who are more recent. Namaste. Oh, and as listed for our other room rental, which was not theirs to use, the Grande Suite has a private entrance, attached bathroom, AND a private driveway to use. Even though we asked these guests NOT to use the private parking driveway for the Grande Suite, they still choose not to honor our request. A bit more respect for those who host you in their home, might be a fair trade.

Tranquil, remote surroundings half an hour to Sedona. Spiritual retreat setting . Ideal for those interested in non-traditional spiritual practices. We were welcomed to dine with the host and other guests and were provided all the information we needed to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable.

I grew up in the Fl. Keys. I moved to Az in 2010. I live in Sedona, Az. I am married and a volunteer for the Sedona center of Vedic culture. I am the hostess and asrama manager for the the center's Red Rock Asrama. I like to study ancient Indian religion and culture.
I have a talking pet Alexandrine Parakeet and look after a small but growing herd of Nigerian dwarf dairy goats. We practise Ahimsa, raising the animals with honor and affection. In return we get to have fresh milk and make cheese and ice cream. Three livestock protection dogs live with the goats and bravely ward off the coyotes at night.
I enjoy travel, reading, nature, animals, and children. Before the recession, I worked in private homes, care facilities, and a charter school. I was a nursing assistant and a behavior assistant, caring for and teaching individuals with special needs.
I love being able to share my life style as a hostess on Air BnB and enjoy getting the chance to make new friends from all over the globe!
