Desert Rose B&B

By Jacki Mieler

COTTONWOOD When you’re heading for a getaway in the heart of Verde Valley wine country, you expect to see rolling hills and rows of grapevines. You don’t necessarily expect to see a trio of llamas standing guard, but that’s exactly what greets you at Desert Rose Bed and Breakfast in Cottonwood. Just as llamas aren’t a typical B&B mascot, Sebastien Lauzon isn’t a typical B&B owner. Many people get into this business when they retire from their first career and they’re ready to escape the rat race and slow down. For the relatively young Lauzon, this business is the rat race, and he pours everything into making sure Desert Rose guests have an unforgettable experience. Plan ahead, and Lauzon will take groups or individuals on a private tour of nearby vineyards. Or just venture into quaint downtown Cottonwood to peruse the myriad tasting rooms. Desert Rose’s community breakfast table is ideal for sharing tales from the road and getting insider tips on the best wineries from fellow guests. And don’t forget to save a few bites for the llamas.
