Desert Rose Bed and Breakfast Reveiew

I was greeted by one of the owners (Betty) who promptly showed me around.

The Desert Rose offers just three rooms (so book early), but I believe they are remolding to add another.  Additionally, there are some very large common areas on two different floors. One area is smartly decorated and is used mainly for reading.  They also have a computer for use and library area, with of course wi-fi.

A very cool feature is the star gazing room, a remodeled atrium where they have a large telescope and several chairs for your star-viewing pleasure.

My room was nicely appointed with a king-sized bed and luxurious linens.  The bathroom included both a shower and a Jacuzzi tub.

The grounds are rather expansive (I’m guessing two acres) and nicely landscaped with some mature shade trees.  The property also includes a number of fruit trees and an amazing waterfall—which is a wonderful place to sit and relax with your morning coffee.

If relaxing pool-side is more your thing…they have that too.

Breakfast is a step-up from your basic continental variety and included a great mix of fresh fruit.

The Cottonwood area itself has a wonderful walkable downtown area with some great restaurants to chose from, I enjoyed a meal at The Tavern Grille and would certainly recommend it.

While there is a lot to see and do in Cottonwood, I would have to say the main attraction is the Verde Canyon train ride.  People from around the world come to ride the fully restored vintage train, one of only a few left in existence.
