Mescal Canyon Retreat is an off-grid, 20.5 acre property adjoining National Forest in Arizona's central high desert. Our property is in a beautiful natural setting, developed by us over the last 33 years.
Please note a 2 night minimum stay.
Mescal Canyon Retreat is part of our 20.5 acre property, Candlewood, in the central high desert of Arizona. We are located in the middle of the Verde Valley wine county, 18 miles from Sedona. Our property consists of our Main House, the Casita (caretakers house), 2 separate B&B rooms in an adjacent stone building, our new Canyon Studio, a Massage Studio, a Dance and Workshop Studio and my Architectural studio. The entire property is "off the grid"which means we produce all of our electricity from photo-voltaic panels. All of the buildings are built with GREEN and SUSTAINABLE materials. We have a large organic garden, a small flock of chickens and are maintaining a 100 vine vineyard. Our property is bound on 3 sides by National Forest and 1 side by private land. We are located at the end of the road at the mouth of Mescal Canyon.
Mescal Canyon Retreat has two private B&B Rooms in a hand built stone building. The Gold Room has a private bath, king size bed and private patio with its own entrance from the outside. As of this year we installed mini splits in each room for efficient air conditioning and heating. The Retreat also offers the Sage Room, with a queen bed, and can be booked in addition to, or instead of, the Gold Room, if desired. Please see separate listing on AirBnB for the Mescal Canyon Retreat-Sage Room.
Both rooms have access to the Hot Tub Terrace and Hot Tub. This terrace is private with a wood burning fireplace and a wonderful view into the National Forest and Mingus Mountain. It is the best place on the property for star gazing.
We have now completed our new Canyon Studio building, located adjacent to the BnB rooms. This is a community room with a full kitchen, eating and relaxing area. It is a hand built stone building with a fireplace and flagstone patio with a view up Mescal Canyon. This new building allows guests to prepare their own lunches and or dinners. It gives our guests to opportunity to relax and unwind without leaving the property.
Guests are served delicious organic breakfasts each morning of their stay. We provide organic coffee and teas, veggies and herbs from the garden and serve eggs from our own chickens.
