Staying at Laura's "Retreat" was perfect for me. I am a busy mom in a job where I serve the public all day and was looking forward to 3 nights all to myself. Laura's apartment felt safe, comfortable and relaxing. I enjoyed the hammock in the yard, listening to the sound of running water and singing birds. I also took Laura's advice for where to hike and enjoy Oak Creek. My retreat was everything I hoped for!
Laura greeted us on arrival & made us feel welcome. Her place was quiet & yet an easy drive into town. It was great to have a little kitchen.
Laura welcomed us and answered all of our questions and made good suggestions about where to eat and hike. The apartment was clean and Laura made a nice accommodation when our son joined us.
Our host was lovely and very friendly. She gave us some great tips on where to watch the sunset and what foods to enjoy. The distance was a little far from town, but because of that we saw some great wildlife! All in all, very pleasant.
We could not have been happier with our stay at Laura's Zen Retreat. It was genuinely such a warm, welcoming and comfortable place to stay during our brief trip to Sedona/the Grand Canyon. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful. It is set in an area of outstanding natural beauty and is very conveniently located for both trips to town and excursions further a field.
It was the little touches that put the icing on the cake. We especially liked the rock salt lamp in the bedroom, the essential oils and the clean and well stocked tea and coffee facilities. The bed was so so sooo comfortable and warm. Bedding was plush and fresh- the best thing for weary travelers such as ourselves! What a treat to be able to see the stunning night sky through the window by the bed (if you pull the thick curtains back of course!)
She was able to accommodate us very well, especially considering that we had to make special arrangements for our late arrival. She was very respectful of our privacy but was attentive to our needs and there was comfort in knowing that she was around if we needed assistance.
Thanks, Laura! I really hope we get the opportunity to stay at yours again! A Zen Retreat it was indeed. Lots of love, Steph and Vicki!!xx
Laura was a wonderful host and became a friend after our first meeting. The place was very clean and peaceful. The location was awesome close to many beautiful sites in Sedona! I will be going back to her place in the future for sure!!! LOVED IT!!
Laura meet us when we arrived. She made sure we were set up with the key and knew how the heating worked. The location wad great with lots of close hiking nearby. It's a ten minute drive up to town with west Sedona (where the grocery stores are) being close. I would definitely stay here again if visiting Sedona. Great value for the trip we had planned.
I have lived in Sedona for 9 years now and can't imagine living anywhere else! I enjoy hiking the many trails here, always something new to see with the changing seasons. I also practice yoga and meditation and enjoy listening to inspiring music and hanging out with close friends. I love to read spiritual, nutritional and fitness related books.
