L’Auberge de Sedona

L’Auberge resort is the premier luxury resort in Sedona, Arizona, providing a relaxing, dog-friendly vacation.

Sedona, Arizona is a little town that has made a big splash.  The unique red rocks and perfect weather ensure that Sedona would not be a secret for very long, and sure enough by the 1980’s Sedona hit the big time for tourist destinations.

Do not let this prevent you from a visit, off-peak travel is highly recommended here (skip the high traffic summer season and certain times in the spring).

I started going to Sedona and Oak Creek Canyon years before L’Auberge was built in 1983, but this was my first stay at the luxurious 4 star resort.  We stayed in one of the Garden Cottages just a few feet from the Creek side Cottages and, of course, the creek.

Dog treat

Dogs are allowed, for a small nightly fee, in the Garden Cottages and all around the property.  Upon arrival, we were greeted by a customized treat bag waiting for us in the room. L’Auberge is one of the most dog friendly places that I have ever visited!

My recent trip to Manhattan helped to prepare me for the price tag of my stay at L’Auberge in Sedona, Arizona.  This is not a low-cost get-a-way, so be ready to spend a bit of cash.  Even the dump hotels in Sedona are overpriced, so if you are planning to stay in Sedona, spend a tad more and stay at L’Auberge or one of the other luxury resort/hotels.

The main attraction for me was peace and quiet.  My dog and I walked down by the creek every morning, and sat and watched the ducks play.  Each morning there are assorted pastries and coffee for breakfast in the lobby bar, with a view.

Watching the ducks

There are areas around the resort for short walks, and great hiking nearby.

It is a short, steep walk up to the 89A highway for shopping, dining, wine tasting, and organized tours.  The resort also offers included shuttle service, which is a life saver in the dark!

My favorite meals on-site at the resort were on the creek side patio.  Offering a great wine selection and delicious menu with a spectacular view.

L’Auberge has a good restaurant on-site, be sure to make reservations ahead of time.  For the value, I prefer the restaurants off-site from the resort.

There is a heated salt water pool and large hot tub in a secluded area next to the day spa.  All along the creek there are quiet spots to kick up your feet and relax.

Overall L’Auberge is a nice relaxing vacation, especially with the dog.  It is the best luxury resort in Sedona and Northern Arizona.

  1. L’Auberge is a perfect package for a great escape. This place really knows what a human being needs and wants, how i wish I can stay here also even just for a night. A walk around the place with a dog in one spring afternoon would be so lovely…
