About this listing
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 Gold Room has a private bath, king size bed and private patio with its own entrance from the outside. The Retreat also offers the Sage Room, with a queen bed, and can be booked in addition to, or instead of, the Gold Room, if desired. Please see separate listing on AirBnB for the Sage 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. The Gold Room is on the right and has its own private courtyard. 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 25 years ago. Each room has it's own heat source and a ducted evaporative cooler for cooling in the hot summer days/nights. 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.
If guests have a pet there is an additional charge of $15/night for each pet. Please inquire about pet restrictions.
The Mescal Canyon Retreat is everything described, plus so much more. My only complaint was the short duration of our stay. Rennie and Andrea are exceptional hosts taking great care to ensure a wonderful stay for guests. The farm fresh breakfast was superb, as is the private hottub and fireplace under the stars. Most importantly was the warmth and great conversation with the hosts and the company of their awesome dogs. Next time two or three nights to really embrace being off the grid, yoga in the studio, and relaxing is in order. Can't wait to come back and will certainly recommend to anyone traveling in the area or looking for a unique getaway! Thanks and peace.
It was a pleasant stay in Rennie's B&B. The room was clean and spacious. The breakfast was delicious. Definitely recommended!! Thanks a lot!
Great spot to relax! Rennie, Andrea and Sarah were wonderful hosts. Favorite parts were the hot tub, hammock and breakfast. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay and wish I could've stayed longer!
Unfortunately, due to car trouble, we did not make it to Sedona. So sorry about this, but Rennie was quite gracious and understanding. I definitely will be returning to Sedona in the future and will definitely try to stay at Mescal Canyon.
This was our first B&B experience and we could not have picked a better place to stay. Rennie and Andrea are delightful hosts. We enjoyed a wonderful breakfast with them each morning overlooking their property. The room was comfortable and well-appointed with a lovely private patio. We’re pretty sure we’ve never seen as many planets and stars as we saw while sitting by the hot tub at night. We can’t wait to stay here again!
Wonderful place... Rennie and Andrea were kind and welcoming hosts and the setting is beautiful. We'll definitely be back!
Rennie is a kind host with exquisite taste in this magical oasis. Highly recommend this B&B to anyone traveling through this area. Will return.
