Oh La La L'Auberge


Birthday Boys Birthday Trip...and the debut of my new camera!

We spent one lovely evening in Sedona this past weekend. We have both been wishing to stay at L'Auberge de Sedona for a few years after dining there about 3 years ago. Hands down, best hotel experience ever. Ever.

From the initial booking to the Valet Man showing us off on Sunday morning, (with bottled water waiting in our cup holders) every detail was flawless. Every hotel should be just like this.

We drove up Saturday morning and stopped at Oak Creek Brewery for some delicious brews and lunch.

And then headed over to check-in...I was pretty excited. I didn't lift a finger the entire time...they unloaded our car, brought our luggage to the Cottage, had the fireplace ready to go (just light the match), music cued up in the room. Scones and coffee were available in the morning and wine tasting with the chef in the evenings. They even brought us an umbrellla Saturday night to get to our dinner reservation and countless other small details that did not go unnoticed and were very much appreciated. The grounds were impeccable, the room was beautiful, the staff polite and charming. I was in awe the entire time. They ALL greeted us by name and even wished Wade a "Happy Birthday".

And of course...these pooches were pampered as well. Dog beds, fancy water bowls and a customized box full of goodies awaited their arrival. (and a giant water bowl at their feet, hehe)

We took a walk with the pups down to the creek to let the dogs roam, check out the views and play around with the camera....

It was chilly and windy, but we still enjoyed every minute of our stay....we had cocktails in the lounge, dinner and breakfast in the AMAZING creekside restaurant and of course, no trip to Sedona is complete without a beautiful hike before wrapping up our trip. Red soles and doggie paws? Yes please!

 It will certainly not be our last trip back.
