Delightful quiet ranch, located at the south end of Sedona in the heart of Jacks Canyon. Guestrooms with panoramic Red Rock views, gorgeous sunsets. There is a patio where breakfast is served in good weather. We border National Forest with beautiful trails for hiking, bicycle and horseback riding. Small pets are welcome, and horses can be boarded in our stables. We are 5 minutes from the nearest shops and restaurants, and one 9-hole and two 18-hole golf courses, and 8 miles from downtown Sedona with its many art galleries and shops, including Tlaquepaque, the beautiful replica of an old Mexican village.

My amazing weekend at Grace’s Secret Garden was everything I was looking for in a getaway from Manhattan, on my own: quiet, relaxing but active and fun. The house and location: the house is really beautiful, very clean and quiet. The views from the rooms – in all directions - are stunning. The rooms are beautifully decorated – and the white sheets were so nice that they worth mentioning here! The location is ideal: secluded but not really. It is very close (10 min driving) to all the attractions and the center of action but a bit on the side so that it is quiet and away from the more touristic crowded areas. The hosts, breakfast and activities: Grace is very warm and fun and overall a great host! She and her husband helped me plan each of my days there with cool insights about everything! And they did choose the best trails for me, as I was hiking alone. Grace is an excellent cook – and I am a foodie! She prepares wonderful dishes and her pancakes alone will make me come back. Bottom line: I plan to return to Grace’s Secret Garden the soonest I can!

I have traveled all over Europe and the states. I was pleased to find Graces the best B&B ever! Grace is so sweet! In a truly professional manner, she gave us a fantastic overview of the area with outstanding recommendations. Her home is spotless and decorated with interesting things from various parts of the world. She made us feel so comfortable and greeted us with coffee/tea and cookies upon arrival. We had 3 adults in one room. She let us use the hallway bathroom too which made it nice. The room was comfortable and charming. The breakfast was top-of-the-line! Beautiful table and delicious food! If you don't stay at Graces, you will be missing out on the best B&B ever!

In an area filled with tourists, Grace and her lovely B&B are truly a secret garden. With views of the red rocks from our bed, cacti on one side and lush plantings on the other, the place is a treat. Grace and her incredible hospitality make this one of the best places we have stayed in all our travels.

Felt like I had returned home after being gone a long time. Treated like royalty and yet felt at home. Can't wait to go back.
