We have been staying here since 2001 when it was Don Hoel's Cabins and now changed to Butterfly Inn under new owners. The staff goes above and beyond. NEVER EVER have we been bitten by ANY BUG!!!!We stay for weeks at a time. CABINS ARE ALWAYS CLEAN!!!!! Dishes are clean, bbq's clean, towels white as snow along with sheets and pillow cases. The new owners FRANK & NICOLE work so hard and have always made our stay feel like home. The breakfast they supply to your cabin is homemade and so yummy!!!! Thank you for a great place to stay when you want to get away from every day stress.Well see you next year and have already book our trip for 2017.

BED BUGS! Don't take a chance!

2.0 on December 23, 2015

If you're thinking of staying at the Butterfly Garden Inn, think twice. My boyfriend and I were lured in by the awesome guest reviews regarding tasty picnic basket pastries and cozy cabins, none of which was worth being ravaged by bed bugs for $200 / night, and having our unbearably itchy, red-welted faces simply dismissed by the inn's owner. We were eaten alive by bed bugs in the master bedroom of cabin 5. Aside from the countless bites that appeared all over our bodies overnight, and the telltale signs of small blood streaks (tip: looks like dark ink stains) on the sheets, we actually found a dead bed bug among the sheets as well. When we reported the bed bug incident to the owner of Butterfly Garden Inn, he was very dismissive, insisting that the cabin had been inspected for bed bugs just recently. In the same breath, he accused us of bringing in the bed bugs in our luggage. Untrue, unprofessional, and totally unacceptable behavior! He moved us to different cabins (cabin 11 & 12), but refused to acknowledge the pest infestation or compensate us in any way for our utterly miserable guest experience. Don't take a chance, take your money elsewhere. If you decide to stay and have a similar experience, know that the Butterfly Garden Inn will not return your money, only insults.

I can't believe this place doesn't have any reviews yet. It is absolutely wonderful. My wife and I stayed here in February for a combination Valentine's Day/birthday getaway. The cabins are super cute and cozy. The folks who run the place are extremely friendly and helpful. The food the deliver each morning is great, and they even make breakfast extra special for my wife's birthday. Oh, and dogs are welcome (I think only in certain cabins.) Anyway, highly recommend. Can't wait to go back.

About the innkeepers

The Garrisons were vacationing in Sedona last summer with their 6 year old daughter and discovered what is now The Butterfly Garden Inn. The inn had been empty for 6 years and was nearly torn down. The first time they walked on the property, Nichole and Frank looked at each other and knew they had to have it. Within a few months, they left their life, their house, their careers, their friends, and their family to begin an adventure of a lifetime. And hence...The Butterfly Garden Inn was born.
