Mescal Canyon Retreat is part of our 22 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.

Andrea and Rennie and their family are just wonderful, perfect hosts, very friendly and nice. I really enjoyed the stay at the beautiful place they created. Everything was just fine. The room is very nice, with a great view, everything was lovely decorated, you have your own privacy, the hot tub under the starlight is absolutely incredible and the breakfast was just gorgeous, absolutely delicious!
A very beautiful place with wonderful hosts!
Wonderful, special, beautiful place to stay - couldn't have asked for more! Great family, adorable pets, awesome scenic quiet location. We thoroughly enjoyed to delicious organic breakfasts, the hot tub under the star filled sky, the peaceful sounds of nature, exploring the area by foot ( with their dog Moki, of course! ). They gave us some great tips on the area including places to see and great restaurant options....( seriously one of the best gourmet pizzas ever ). Thank you Rennie and Andrea -we will be sending many more your way!
Our short stay at Mescal Canyon Retreat made us wish that we had more time to linger in this off grid, quiet place. The room was clean and lovely, with a great view, just a few steps from the hot tub overlooking the canyon. The room is in a separate building and seemed quite private, even though kind and considerate hosts Andrea and Rennie live only a few steps away. Food and flower gardens surround the property, and home grown eggs were on the breakfast menu. Their dog, Moki, was happy to take us on long walks up the canyon. For those who prefer a care-fully executed alternative vision to unbridled luxury, this is the place for you!
My stay here was MUCH more beautiful than expected. It's a perfect place if you want a natural escape from mainstream. Very peaceful and private! I brought my dog and she was able to run freely and even made friends w the dogs living there.
Mescal Canyon was beautiful. Of the five days we spent in Arizona our best memory was made here. Wholeheartedly thankful to have experienced the beauty of this wonderful place and the company of such inspiring hosts. Lots of love. Hoping to see them again soon!
My husband and I had a great time at the Mescal Canyon Retreat! It is a beautiful location, private, and comfortable. Hut tubbing under the stars is a must! Rennie and Andrea were wonderful hosts and we loved visiting with them while enjoying our delicious breakfast. Interesting people and an interesting place. We wish we could have stayed longer than one night. We will recommend this place to our friends. A great value as well!
My husband and I had a lovely time at the Mescal Canyon Retreat. The property is stunning and the hot tub and outdoor fire are incredible - I have never seen so many stars! We took a fun walk through the canyon the next morning with our dog and the resident dog Moqui and had a blast. Breakfast was delicious and Andrea was a lovely hostess with great recommendations for sights to see in the area. We would definitely stay here again.
The place is lovely, hosts are wonderful, and the breakfast was delicious!
We had a more than lovely time, spending an extended Thanksgiving weekend. A cozy and comfy room, a fantastic property, and wonderful hosts - you couldn't ask for anything more.
Andrea and Rennie made us feel very welcome, and had a lot of great tips for our stay. (And let's not forget Andrea's marvelous meals!). They were even gracious enough to let us borrow their dog as a guide for one of our hikes. Can't say if we or the dog enjoyed that hike more :)
It was a much needed dose of peace, comfort, and quietness. Thank you, both for being such fantastic hosts, and for sharing such a haven of tranquility!
We had a great stay at Rennie and Andrea's lovely peaceful place! Breakfast was good too! Loved it!
