Throughout the past few months there have been many Spring breakers and Spring travelers whom we have had the pleasure of hosting. We always enjoy feedback from our guests on activities and hikes that they have done in the area and it keeps us in the know of what places are really outstanding and worth the time and money. We have heard many guests raving about the Pink Jeep tours, specifically the Broken Arrow tour, along with Northern Light Balloon Expeditions that take you up and over Sedona and then treat you to Mimosas and Apple turnovers after! The Page Springs area, which has many wineries, has been a hit with our guests, as everything is in bloom and everywhere you look there is sprawling green foliage and beautiful colored flowers. As for hikes, our guests seem to really like the Baldwin trail that takes you along the creek and behind Cathedral Rock. The Bear sign trail out by Boynton Canyon is a favorite and the Brins Mesa Trail which takes you above Uptown and gives you amazing views of Sedona. We hope you join us for some of these outdoor activities!

We have also gained a lot of attention through Trip Advisor and Yelp! This is a result of our guests who take their own personal time and energy to write reviews about us! This is really so helpful to our business and we love hearing about all the positive experiences our guests have had, and it certainly helps out our future guests when deciding where to stay in Sedona. Thank you to those that have already stayed and to those that will come, we are grateful for your reviews and support and always hope to welcome you back with open arms!

January is our time here at the Briar Patch Inn when is slows down and we are able to reflect on the year past. We see how we have met our goals, what areas we can still improve and then create new goals for our present year, 2016! Along with this we like to do our spring cleaning early and make sure all our cabins are at their best, in all ways possible, so that our guests feel refreshed and at home when they stay with us. We want everyone that comes to visit the Briar Patch Inn to leave feeling rejuvenated, relaxed and most importantly to have had a wonderful experience, and one that exceeded their expectations!
As we ring in another new year we are so grateful to all our guests that came to stay or came for breakfast, for it has been a very fun, busy and magical year with you all! We are so happy to have made new memories and been blessed with all the good fortune and health we have today as a family owned and operated business for going on 34 years! We will be sending many merry wishes to you all for Christmas and thinking the happiest thoughts for this New Year! Let 2016 be filled with success, self-love, time spent with loved ones, creativity and pursuit of happiness! Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!
