Blue is a super nice host. She took me (and her dog Rusty) on a beautiful sunset walk when I arrived the first night. I also appreciated how she provided breakfast and offered to pick up supplies whenever she headed into town. It was also a very quiet room to read and relax after a long day of hiking.
Wonderful experience and I really don't think you can have a better location in Sedona - trail right from her driveway! I can to mountain bike Sedona and the space was perfect and Blue was very accommodating. Looking forward to a return visit.
The images are accurate, even the landscape photo of Cathedral Rock which is a spot just a few minutes walk behind the house! Upon arrival Blue took me on a walk with her sweet pup Rusty to show me this gorgeous (and less visited!) spot as well as some more popular picture perfect locations. She was a great host, always offering favorite spots and directions. The room has a private full bathroom inside of it, a huge plus! Overall a fantastic stay!
I had a great stay. Blue is a great host. I apprecited her pre-stay information. I was very comfortable and felt safe and at easy.
Blue is very kind! Was my pleasure chatting with her. She was very helpful with helping me to select nearby golf courses. I had two days great golfing at Oakcreek country club! Enjoyed my 4th of July escape in the red rocks. Thank you, Blue! Best wishes!
I really enjoyed my stay. Blue is a very kind and respectful host and her house is comfortable and in a fabulous location. Thank you!
Blue was an amazing host, she had hikes laid out for us upon arrival. Rusty, her dog, was a sweetheart. He was a little shy around our 2.5 year old pub but they played together nicely. Blue is a fabulous host & we enjoyed our stay!!!!
About the Host, Blue
I'm a retired buidling designer, with a strong interest in hiking. I chose my home for its location -- private, with out-the-door beautiful hikes. I've lived in this area for 30 years and have a wealth of knowledge about it. I enjoy helping others enjoy the endless beauty here!
