L'Auberge de Sedona: Sedona, Arizona

Hotel Reviews: L'Auberge de Sedona is a luxury resort located along the banks of Oak Creek in Sedona, Arizona. The hotel features 87 guest rooms and cottages nestled around 11 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds. The hotel has a variety of unique cottages which make for a private and luxurious stay. The hotel is dog friendly and charges a $35 per night fee for dog under 50 lbs and a $50 per night fee for dogs over 50 lbs.

For this stay, we stayed in a  private, freestanding one-bedroom cottage called the Vista Suite. The Vista Suite cottages are located higher up on the hillside and have truly spectacular views of Sedona's red rocks. The units feature a living room with a gas fireplace, separate bedroom with a king sized bed, and bathroom with an outdoor shower cedar shower. The expansive redwood deck on the cottage was fully enclosed (no steps going to the ground) and appointed with comfy patio furniture for taking in the mountain views.  Our unit was cottage #98 and it was the end cottage which gave us plenty of privacy. As the hotel is spread out, at times, you may need to call for a golf cart to pick you up. I highly recommend this for when you need a lift. 

There is much to do around the hotel, including walking along the banks of Oak Creek or taking a short drive to do some magnificent hiking in Sedona. During this stay, I hiked up to Devil's Bridge. The hike up to the top of Devil's Bridge includes very steep, step-like, rock climbing and isn't recommended for most dogs. However, for very agile dogs like me, the hike to the top is truly amazing. Be sure to wear a very solid harness if you opt to do this hike. Click link for more information on Devil's Bridge Trail.  Wow. Much Wow.
