This B&B was such a wonderful place. Everything about it was first-rate. The proprietors were so helpful and welcoming. The view from the rooms (we stayed in 2 different ones-Javalina on the second floor and a first floor room-Yavapai-with a Jacuzzil) were breathtaking. I kept wondering how we got so lucky to find these rooms available at the last minute.The...

Of the many B&B's I have stayed in here and in Europe, this is by far the best. Delicious gourmet breakfasts, hospitable, warm and friendly hosts and staff, stunning views. I stayed in the Kokopelli room while my daughter stayed in the Mariposa. Both rooms had awesome views from the windows and balconies. I saw a beautiful red male cardinal...

My sisters, their husbands and my wife and myself spent three wonderful days in Sedona and stayed at the Penrose B & B. The rooms, breakfasts, service and views couldn't have been better. If we have the opportunity to return to Sedona we will definitely stay at the Penrose B & B again.

This was only our 2nd or 3rd visit to a B&B. We feel sorry for the owners of the next one we stay in unless it is the Penrose again. They will have a very tough act to follow. The property was superb. New, well decorated, comfortable, inviting & with the most outstanding view of the red mountains of Sedona...

It's been a few years since we visited and the Penrose is still an outstanding B&B. Christie and Whitney make you feel right at home. We stayed in the suite (Kokopelli and Javelina combined) with friends. The red rock views are great! Breakfast each day, prepared by Patty and served by Beverly, was excellent. Great strawberry smoothies! Whatever you need...

Yesterday we woke up to large snowflakes and low to no visibility of the gorgeous red rocks that are normally visible from the bathroom and all bedroom windows of the Yavapai room at the Penrose B&B. It was stunningly different from the sunny and warm days before, but made for some lovely pictures! Our room was clean and had everything...

Just as good as it look like online! Perfect location - an unobstructed view of the Red Rock. Room layout was amazing to enjoy the view. Food was terrific, but the hosts Whitney and Christie were even better! Can say enough, great experience. Made you feel at home. Spent 2 nights, would stay there again! Traveled Jan 2011, but the...

We had the extraordinary pleasure of spending two nights there in mid-Feb. Penrose is one of the all-time best B&B's we've stayed at in our worldwide travels. Arriving well after dark and never have been to Sedona we had no idea what we'd wake up to. Incredible location - the pictures (of the views and rooms) on their website are...

This lovely house was a breath of fresh air. We were very comfortable and relaxed. The breakfast was scrumptious and good for you. The views and the hiking are incredible. The hosts are friendly, extremely helpful and accommodating. We would return for business, romance, with, friends, family or as solo travelers. Something for everyone.
