5 star all the way!!!! Normally I submit a review after we had returned home, but tonight as I am drinking a glass of wine on my private porch viewing the Red rocks at sunset, I couldn't wait to share our fabulous experience at the Penrose. First off...we also are staying in the Mariposa. Small room, I think not, there... More

We stayed two nights in the Mariposa Room. The only draw back I have to mention is that our room was very small. The queen size bed took up practically the whole room leaving very little space to move around. We really liked the location of The Penrose even though it was not particularly close to anything we wanted to... More

This is one of the most charming and perfect B & Bs you will ever find! We stayed at The Penrose for five days in December, and although the weather was not great, the inn was fabulous!

We stayed at THE PENROSE B&B in Sedona this April. You couldn't ask more from a B&B. Our room was beautiful and tastefully decorated in dark wood and white chairs and linens. We had a magnificent view of Bell Rock -- one of the awesome red rocks in the area. We ate on their outdoor patio for breakfasts, which were... More

WOW! From the moment I stepped foot into The Penrose my jaw hit the floor! I'm a pianist and the 1st thing I saw was a beautiful grand piano.

After reading reviews on Trip Advisor, we decided to spend the night of my husband's birthday at The Penrose. We were very happy with our accommodations. Everything was spotless, light and bright and we had views from every window, including the bathroom. We loved the white linen on the bed and felt the spread was very clean. We are just... More

Sedona, AZ is one of the most breathtaking cities you can imagine. But what made my visit even more enjoyable was the lovely Penrose B&B.

We had a good time, but the rooms are small and if you have luggage, as we did since we were on a three week trip, you can't put your suitcase away. The breakfasts were delicious and different each morning. Unfortunately, it was too hot to eat on the front terrace of the house and had to stay in the... More
