The space

Mescal Canyon Retreat is part of our 20.5 acre property, Candlewood, in the central high desert of Arizona. We are located in the middle of the Verde Valley wine county, 18 miles from Sedona. Our property consists of our Main House, the Casita (caretakers house), 2 separate B&B rooms in an adjacent stone building, a Massage Studio, a Dance and Workshop Studio and my Architectural office. The entire property is "off the grid"which means we produce all of our electricity from photovoltaic panels. All of the buildings are built with GREEN and SUSTAINABLE materials. We have a large organic garden, a small flock of chickens and recently planted a 100 vine vineyard. Our property is bound on 3 sides by National Forest and 1 side by private land. We are located at the end of the road at the mouth of Mescal Canyon.
Mescal Canyon Retreat has two private B&B Rooms in a hand built stone building. The Sage Room has a private bath, king size bed and private patio with its own entrance from the outside. The Retreat also offers the Gold Room, with a king bed, and can be booked in addition to, or instead of, the Sage Room, if available. Please see separate listing on AirBnB for the Gold Room.
Both rooms have access to the Hot Tub Terrace and Hot Tub. This terrace is private with a wood burning fireplace and a wonderful view into the National Forest and Mingus Mountain. It is the best place on the property for star gazing.
Guests are served delicious organic breakfasts each morning of their stay. We provide organic coffee and teas, and serve eggs from our own chickens.

The B&B rooms are separated from the Main House by a courtyard. They are private from each other and each has it's own outdoor entrance. When walking along the brick pathway toward the B&B Rooms, the Sage Room entrance is on the left. The rooms also have access to a small supply room with a small refrigerator and additional room supplies.
This is a passive solar, native stone building. The building is hand built by us 30 years ago. Each room has it's own heat source and now we have single zone mini split A/C units for each room. All rooms have sliding glass doors for good ventilation. The house is constructed of all natural and green materials.
Guests have the use of the private hot tub terrace with a hot tub and outdoor fireplace, a wonderful place to relax and star gaze.
