For some travelers, the name of the game is peace and quiet. For others, it’s New York’s Times Square, London’s Piccadilly Circus or Santa Fe’s historic plaza. In other words, action right at your fingertips. If the latter is what gets your heart racing, consider staying at Orchards Inn the next time you’re in Red Rock Country. Located in the heart of Sedona’s bustling uptown district, this cozy establishment neighbors the town’s many art galleries, shops, restaurants and tour companies, making it easy to enjoy the town with your own two feet. That isn’t to say that Orchards Inn is just a place to sleep. It’s not. Guests can get lost in the scenery while lounging poolside or unwind with a glass of wine on their private deck or balcony, overlooking the spectacular red rocks. According to Meghan Rudolph, the property’s media manager, every room — there are 70 — features a view. Visitors to this part of the world often fall in love. Frankly, it’s hard not to. If Sedona captures your heart, consider extending your stay. With kitchenettes in a handful of the rooms and a pet-friendly policy, Orchards Inn is the perfect place to call home. At least for a little while.
Orchards Inn is located at 254 State Route 89A in Sedona. For more information, call 855-474-7719 or visit www.orchardsinn.com.
