A Luxurious Desert Oasis For The Entire Family
Your scenic drive through miles of saguaros will bring you to the dirt road that sets the stage for your arrival. As you arrive inside the gates you will be given a tour of the property and shown to your suite. Once you’re settled in, grab a prickly pear cocktail at the bar and explore on your own or simply lounge by the pool until dinner. After dinner your hosts will give you a little history of the inn and a preview of the range of activities in store for you. A desert sunset will be enjoyed on the deck or a short hike for those who are feeling adventurous, and the evening will wrap with gourmet s’mores and drinks around the fire pit.
You’re free to sleep in, but there’s something about the desert sunrise that makes you want to wake up early for a cup of coffee on the rooftop. This is made easy for you by the gourmet coffee available in your suite or brewing in the kitchen. A relaxed breakfast will be served which you can enjoy in the dining room, or al fresco before you get ready to turn your kids over for supervised pool time and games at 10am. You can take a dip with your kids, grab a book in the main room, or simply catch sun on the deck. After lunch there will be a prickly pear workshop with Sonoran Rosie where you will learn how to make prickly pear syrup, and come away with a bottle of your own handcrafted goodness! End the evening with gourmet fare by Chef Ezra and cocktails poolside.
Wake up early for a group sunrise hike with coffee at the top of Valley View Overlook before breakfast and then prepare yourself for the delightful treat of an in-house art show and market of talented, local indigenous artists. You will get the chance to browse and chat with amazing creators in the intimate setting of your own host inn and purchase handcrafted souvenirs straight from the makers.
There is no better way to get acquainted with the local wildlife than a visit to the Desert Museum just a few minutes away. Your ride will arrive at 10am to take all interested guests to explore the acres of native plants and animals in a beautiful natural setting. Our children’s counselors will accompany you to museum, so there will be extra eyes on your kids at all times. You will make it back to the inn for lunch, after which you will turn the kids over to play in the pool so you can get ready for the “adults only” dinner and movie put on by Cloth & Flame. While your kids are aptly entertained by their own dinner and movie, you will head up top to a uniquely delightful spread that is a collaboration between C & F outdoor event curator and your personal Chef Ezra. This will be a multiple course meal, so come prepared to eat, drink and be social! After dinner you will grab your wine and head out to the al fresco movie theater for a classic flick under the stars! Reunite with your kids by the fire pit for a farewell toast and more gourmet s’mores.
Breakfast by the pool and goodbyes!
