Details

Who doesn’t love Sedona? We’re going up for the changing of the leaves and great weather in luxury accommodations up on the airport mesa. Add some hiking on 1 of dozens of trails, wine tastings, time with animals (Out of Africa or Bearizona), Verde Valley train ride through the canyon, river kayaking, mucho food (fabulous restaurants everywhere), shopping, jeep tours, vortex meditation, and the list goes on.

Please keep Tuesday October 19 at 6pm open for our pre-trip mixer. We’ll go over all the details of our weekend, finalize the carpools, and meet everyone in advance.

One option is to add on a first class train ride ticket down the Verde Valley (along the Verde River) to see some beautiful scenery, wildlife, and cliff dwellings. Plus, before boarding, we will be attending the Oktoberfest celebration at the train station for some good German food and craft beer tasting. This reservation will be required in advance. $130/person.

Our train ride (in first class) will include snacks, an upgraded indoor experience, and a private outdoor viewing car for spotting wildlife and enjoying the fresh air:

I will arrange our carpool and help find you passengers or a driver for our caravan up Thursday morning. Volunteer drivers will be needed. And, of course, we will stop at the Rock Springs Cafe on the way up for some breakfast/lunch and world famous pie!!!

You are welcome to join us on a few chosen activities or head out on your own to explore. We will have lots of time. Each night there will be dinner reservations for all of us to reunite and brag about our day. We will also coordinate activities and rides for the next day at dinner. Let’s ensure no one is left behind. Lunch will be on the trail, on your own, or in small groups.

We’re planning a 5-day weekend (Thursday-Monday) so you can be there for 2 weekdays before all the tourists arrive and have an extra one at the end.

We’ll be in the heart of the Sedona and Oak Creek area (just up on the airport mesa overlooking the entire valley) so expect short drives and breakfast within walking distance. And there is a free hotel shuttle from 2-10pm for pickups and drop offs up to 5 miles away (which includes Tlaquepaque Art, Food, and Shopping Center).

Our lovely hotel offers a wine bar, an outdoor heated pool and jacuzzi, koi pond, beautiful gardens, microwave, coffee maker, and mini-refrigerator in each room, free coffee in the front office, free wifi, hair dryers, and free parking. Plus, great views of the beautiful red rock and the Sedona valley. There are trails and a vortex within walking distance of our resort.

Sky Ranch Lodge is now on the Sedona Botanical Gardens list of properties with amazing foliage and labeling for the plants. There is a small stream and foot bridges running through the property too. This a great spot for reading, bird watching, sipping wine, or just hanging out.

Plus, we’ll finish our weekend sampling more wine and appetizers at our favorite vineyard Sunday:
