Interaction with Guests
Ienjoy meeting my guests and conversing with them when schedules allow. I am very willing to share my knowledge of the area and my favorite spots. Most guests really appreciate that.
My neighborhood is quiet and there are basic amenities within five minutes like restaurants, Post Office, gas station, great thrift and antique stores.
There is no public transit so a car is a must.
No Smoking please. Dogs are welcome if well behaved. My dog puts up a fuss when guests come but a few sniffs and she will be a friend.
Absolutely wonderful hostess! It was a great pleasure to stay with Carol and her dog Alize...The room is clean and comfortable with a private bath. The area is just beautiful and in a wonderful quiet neighborhood. I would highly recommend her place to anyone.! Thank you Carol for offering such a wonderful place to rest!
Carol was wonderful and her house was a great quiet spot to spend a week. She was very hospitable, welcoming, and made me feel right at home! The backyard is beautiful and great for looking at the stars since you're out in the country. If you have AT&T you won't get any service (she has Verizon and says that works fine) but imessaging on an iPhone worked just fine. Her partner Tom took me on a beautiful hike and they were both very knowledgable of the area. Her dog is also very sweet and put up with my little dog as well! The room is really big with a mini fridge, TV, and large bathroom right outside your door. Carol's room is on the other side of the house so it feels very private. If you want a relaxing country retreat this is perfect!
Carol's place "in the country" was very relaxing. I enjoyed staying there during my visit to Sedona and environs, and would not hesitate to return.
Carol was very sweet and accommodating to both myself and my dog Chico. The room was very comfortable and it was a quiet place for me to get some much needed work done.
Carol's home is lovely and the surroundings are beautiful. Make sure you enjoy her backyard. It has a great little fountain that makes you feel relaxed.
We had a lovely time. Carol's Place is very quiet and restful and we were able to have morning coffee sitting on her back deck overlooking the mountains and viewing the birds (bird book and binoculars provided by Carol). Carol's Place is about a 15 minute drive to Sedona and is very close to sites such as Montezuma's Well and Montezuma's Castle. Carol is a wealth of information, suggesting hikes and restaurants that we would not otherwise known about.
Ken and Susan from British Columbia, Canada who booked this with Gail's assistance. Gail plans to stay there at a later date.
Carol was lovely. She made me feel right at home. The room was so comfortable with its own fridge and bathroom. Carol gave me useful tips on what to see and where to go and even waited up for me when I got side tracked and took an unexpected long drive up to the Grand Canyon. I recommend staying here, she is just lovely!
I'm an experienced host. I am also a nature lover and a volunteer ranger at Montezuma National Monument.
I live in the Verde River Valley. I am very knowledgeable about both its human and natural history .
Northern Arizona is a great place to live because there are always new things to explore and learn. You have only to step out your door to enjoy the never ending drama in the sky which never fails to thrill and amaze.
I'm retired now but once a teacer always a teacher. I would love to be your tour guide!
