Halloween 2015


Autumn is finally here and we can feel the magic in the air! Our wonderful little Briar Patch Inn is adorned with pumpkins, squashes, acorns, red, orange and yellow leaves and friendly scare crows that welcome our guests as they enter the property. Our warm and cozy wood burning fireplaces enrich the air with a juniper scent, along with our home baked cookies that are fresh everyday when our guests arrive. We look forward to the Halloween weekend and all the fun festivities that will be happening in Sedona for family and friends to enjoy. Happy Halloween!


Warm regards,

Fall Is On It’s Way

The fall season is swiftly coming and with it, the cooler weather, the beautiful changing leaves and the reaping of the harvest. As a last salute we are enjoying the outdoors and dipping into Oak Creek while it’s still warm enough to get in, splashing about and soaking in the hot rays of sunshine, for soon enough we will be sitting next to the crackling fireplaces and drinking hot apple cider. Our wonderful Creekside breakfast will also be coming to an end, but we will be still offering breakfast inside our cozy lodge, so call and make a reservation while the weather is still warm and sunny.

Warm regards,

The Briar Patch Staff

Camp Soaring Eagle Oncology Retreat

We just completed another Camp Soaring Eagle Oncology retreat here at Briar Patch, and everyone had just the best time ever. We want to thank all those who helped make this past week so memorable for the children and their families. Pink Jeep, Arizona Sunrays Gymnastics, Red Rock Quilters, Allie Ollie Boutique, the massage therapists, the hair dressers and make-up ladies, and all the amazing volunteers and camp staff who made it possible! There was lots of love and laughter shared among everyone, and we are thrilled to be a part of making the challenges you face seem a little more distant for a few days. We send home to all of you our very best wishes and hope to welcome each of you back sometime.

Happy 4th of July!

Happy Fourth of July!

The only way to beat the heat this summer is to jump into Briar Patch’s beautiful and serene swimming hole in Oak Creek. After you have worked up an appetite from swimming we have wonderful grills around the property that are perfect to cook up your favorite meal in celebration of the holiday! At the end of the day you can enjoy a beautiful Sedona sunset from your private porch, our grassy courtyard or our pleasant hammocks. We look forward to hearing from you!

Fathers-Day (2)

Happy Father’s Day!

Come visit us at the Briar Patch Inn for our delicious breakfast and live music every Thursday through Sunday! We now have the amazing duet called Lyra playing once again for their 26th season and my, what a treat it is! While June warms up, more of us are wanting to jump into the cool and refreshing Oak Creek and find shade under the beautiful Sycamores, Cottonwoods and Pines while enjoying a good book or picnic. The fish are jumping, the sun is shining and the trails are calling out to all our hikers. It couldn’t be any better in this month of June. Come join us for this Father’s day, Sunday June 21 for breakfast or a stay! Let the summer commence!

Mother’s Day is Upon Us

Mother’s day is upon us this Sunday May 10th and many wonderful restaurants will be having Mother’s Day brunches and dinners. We look forward to those that will be celebrating here with us at Briar Patch Inn, and we look to make sure your stay is relaxing, refreshing, and rejuvenating!

Join us at the Briar Patch Inn for Easter weekend April 5th!

Come and join us at the Briar Patch Inn for Easter weekend April 5th! We will have a fun and delightful Easter egg hunt for the children and a REAL live Easter bunny to meet and greet with families! We are getting into full swing of the spring season and are enjoying every bit of sunshine along with the nice, refreshing breeze and the sweet scents of flowers and new vegetation. It is even warm enough that some guests are starting to bring their delicious breakfast outside by the Oak Creek where they can listen to the water flow over the rocks and the birds serenade one another. Our sheep, Wooly and Lily, are also shedding their winter coats of wool and getting them shaved off so they can be ready to show off their new fit and “spring” bodies. We hope you all will come and stop by to visit us this Easter!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

St-Patrick-Shamrock-ImageHappy St. Patrick’s Day! We feel like St. Patrick himself has touched the Briar Patch with his green thumb because everywhere we look there is natural green growth sprouting up from all places around the property! The wild storms have left Sedona well soaked and the plants, trees and flowers are ready to blossom and show theirs wonderful colors. In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, Sedona will be holding its 45th Annual Parade and Festival and there will be many fun activities, great food and delightful entertainment. The creek will be heating up as well and the amount outdoor activities will only increase from here on out, so bring the family and we can help you come up with a list of wonderful, exciting and adventurous ideas to do with the family out in the sun! These next few months are very busy here at the Briar Patch Inn, so call ahead or go online to book your reservation.
