Vacations are no longer limited to summer getaways, although there is a special magic to the long days, short nights, and sultry temperatures that accompany the summer solstice, especially when you choose Sedona for your annual vacation! Offering sunny skies, scenic vistas, and a feeling that something special is waiting around every corner, your summer journey to Arizona promises to be the vacation that you talk about fondly for years. However, if you find yourself seeking slightly cooler temperatures and even more color than can normally be found in red rock country, a trip this fall in Sedona promises to shine bright in your future, especially when you choose Stay Sedona for your accommodations. Offering luxury, comfort, and warmth no matter what the season, our homes are the best way to turn an ordinary vacation into an extraordinary journey, and this guide to the ultimate Sedona vacation in the summer and fall will ensure that you will not miss out on a single minute of the fun!

Welcome Home

The most memorable vacations begin with the best vacation homes and Stay Sedona has just what you need to feel welcomed and wanted! Each property we offer is different from the others in style, size, and design, but in all of the homes you will find a touch of Sedona that adds a magic to the structure under which you will eat, play, and sleep. Kitchens that are open to the rest of the home are where family feasts can be created or can be used to enjoy leftovers under the light of the stove. Fully equipped for all your needs, these spaces are the heart of the home, but there’s no need to eat standing in front of the refrigerator (even if that were something you would do at home) when a dining room (or area) is located just a few steps away. Dining room tables offer seating for all the members of your traveling party, and serve multiple purposes including game stations for no holds barred games of Scrabble, puzzle building spots, and planning stations; comfortable and inviting, planning out your days as you snack on chips and salsayou brought home from one of the many Mexican food restaurants in the area is always a great idea!

Our homes also offer super soft sofas perfect for reading, napping, or hanging out and watching the state-of-the-art televisions hanging directly across the room, and bedrooms that allow you to shut the door to the world and retreat into a dreamland, sleeping peacefully through the night. We at Stay Sedona understand that to have a great day exploring the magic of our red rock village, it is important to have a great night’s sleep to give you energy and good temper, and our beds offer premium mattresses that are soft and comfortable and placed in spaces that are designed to encourage sleep. Because many of our properties offer fire pits under the stars, beginning your night while gathered around a roaring fire, staring up at the velvety purple of the night sky can be your first step in ensuring that your sleep will be deep and uninterrupted with worries or stress! Some of our properties also offer hot tubs that add romance to your getaway while also performing a functional purpose, relieving aches and pains that may have been earned during your daytime adventures in town. Because we understand that the idea of family is different for everyone, some of our Stay Sedona properties are pet-friendly, allowing your fur baby to join in the fun!

Summer in Sedona

The beauty of Sedona grows rich and verdant as thesummer months arrive, and there is plenty of fun to be had in our mountain town. One of the more popular summer Sedona activities is shopping, as apparent by the plethora of shops that dot our landscape. Offering air conditioning which is always much appreciated in the hotter months and a variety of unique and unusual wares that exemplify the Southwest Spirit, you may find yourself unable to stay away as you fall in love with the selection of gifts and goodies that are available to you! Our town is known for its mystical properties, and many of the shops and boutiques sell items that help with the magic. Sedona Crystal Vortex, for example, offers a vast selection crystals, minerals, and gifts that are guaranteed to delight their recipients. Step out of the heat into the cool and lightly scented shop space and open your mind; many of the crystals and minerals sold here will speak to you, helping you with problems you may or may not have even known you have! That shiny red stone you see displayed comes with a little card that tells you its name (red jasper) and its healing properties that include calming its owners while helping them communicate with the earth. Used as a part of chakras, the red jasper is just one of many mystical and magical stones you will find in this store and many others throughout town.

Summer in Sedona

History buffs may want to study the history of Sedona, and an in-depth exhibit of our rich and storied history can be explored at the Sedona Heritage Museum, located at 735 Jordan Road. Open 7 days of the week from 11 AM until 3 PM, this informative establishment believes in not just preserving the past, but in giving visitors a beautiful picture of how we have evolved over the centuries. Learn about the Native Americans who settled this land, surviving and thriving against incredible odds, although one tribe, the Anasazi, seemingly disappeared overnight. Montezuma Castle National Monument, located in Camp Verde, offers an incredible example of where the Anasazi lived; a structure carved out of the cliffs tells a more complete story of their lives in the desert, so be sure to stop by if you have the time, as it is only about an hour’s drive away from your Stay Sedona escape.

As we have stated more than a few times, it can get really hot here in the summer, which makes water activities exceedingly popular, and in Sedona, it has become a summer tradition to hang out at Slide Rock State Park. Tucked away in the shadows of the red rocks, Oak Creek runs through it, offering a place to play in chilly mountain waters, the area around the creek was once an apple orchard, but today it is a playground for summer people seeking a way to cool down. Be sure to bring a towel, as the water can get super cold, even in the middle of the season! If the water is not enough to cool you down, no problem! A visit to Rocky Road Ice Cream Company is the easiest and sweetest way to cool you down from the inside out. Offering both ice cream and sorbet, the expansive list of flavors is sure to satisfy the sweetest of sweet tooths; our favorite flavors change daily, but for the moment we are madly in love with the unique tastes that combine to make their Raspberry Chipotle treat!

Falling for Fall

There is no bad season to visit Sedona, but the beauty of fall does make it one of our favorite times of the year. These are the months where you can get out there and explore the red rocks without fear of getting overheated. Take the opportunity to explore psychic vortexes, made even more fun when examined from the back of one of the many-colored jeep tours available in Sedona; pink jeeps are the traditional shades, but the Red Rock Western Jeep Tours offer rides in brilliant shades of crimson and the Safari Jeep Tours offer rides in a variety of shades, including red, black, and Army green! You may be wondering what a psychic vortex is right now, and the simplest way to describe them is that they are areas in the red rocks where the earth seems to come alive, offering healing properties as the energy leads itself to meditation. You may have heard about these energy centers, and may expect them to be all over Sedona, but the reality is there are only four, with Boynton Canyon offering the most powerful of all the vortexes! The jeep tour guides, no matter which color you choose, will take you to the vortexes, but also give informative tours of the region, so if you do nothing else this fall in Sedona, take a Jeep tour!

Fall in Sedona

If you really want to get out there in nature and do not fancy sharing the adventure with strangers, a good hike through Oak Creek Canyon will give you a sense of peace, tranquility, and accomplishment as you hike off the extra calories you have been consuming during your stay in paradise. Autumn is truly a special time in Sedona, and as you hike, you may come across examples of local wildlife, including elk, mule deer, and the occasional fluffy bunny rabbit. The trees turn brilliant shades of gold, orange, and red, complementing the red rocks that surround you, and the cooler weather will allow you to walk further than you might have been able to during summer in Sedona. Want to check out the landscape without having to do a whole lot of walking? Fall is when the skies of Arizona begin to fill with colorful and interesting hot air balloons, and Northern Light Balloon Expeditions and Red Rock Balloons offer a variety of tours and even include a champagne picnic with your flight.

Culinary Explorations

As you might expect, our neighbors to the south have influenced our food tastes, and it will be hard to go far without coming across a spicy and delicious Mexican food restaurant! From the haute cuisine choices offered by a local celebrity chef at Elote to the simple dishes found in the family owned Tamaliza, there are no wrong choices, but if we had to pick just one, we would suggest you try out the delights offered by Oaxaca. Pronounced waa·haa·kuh, this stucco structure has been a tradition in Sedona for more than a couple of decades, serving our favorite dishes while offering views of the red rocks that will touch your soul. The patio is our favorite place to dine during fall in Sedona, but every seat is the best seat in the house when the chips and salsa are placed before you!

Fresh Tacos for Sedona Activities

Sedona attracts travelers from all over the world and because we want our guests to feel at home, we also offer a large variety of international restaurants. Try out the Italian classics found at Picazzo’s Healthy Italian Kitchen, savor American favorites at Creekside American Bistro, or enjoy the Japanese specialties found at Minami. If steak is what you desire, steak is what can be found at Judi’s Restaurant & Lounge, open again after the pandemic and serving the comfort foods that make everyone feel at home in the desert. If you simply cannot choose between breakfast, lunch, and dinner, it is no big deal, as Pump House Station Urban Eatery & Market serves all three!

Every day will be a new adventure made more comfortable and luxurious when you choose Stay Sedona for your vacation accommodations.

Known for being an area of natural wellness and healing, check out the various holisitic opportunities as well as massage therapy in Sedona.

 

Each year thousands of visitors make their way to Sedona for its natural healing effect. Not only does the landscape of Sedona help with your wellness but so can the many natural healers that call the town home. Our therapists are Licensed Massage Therapists who specialize in craniosacral and myofascial treatment. Look at what this therapy can provide for your overall health and wellbeing and enjoy massage therapy in Sedona:

 

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy

 

Our nervous system is housed in the bones, nerves, and overall connective tissues of the body. Any disruption to our nervous system can be disastrous and lead to injuries, stress, and even long-lasting trauma that often presents itself as pain and neurological dysfunction. Craniosacral therapists help heal your nervous system with their Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy, a non-invasive technique that will help you reach a new level of relaxation. This therapy taps into your pure consciousness, allowing your body to heal and reorganize itself. You will feel a deep stillness of the body throughout the therapy.

 

Myofascial Release

 

Our internal organs and vessels are all surrounded by connective tissue called fascia that helps hold our bodies together. Whenever our fascia becomes inflamed or affected by trauma, it can cause increased pressure throughout our body. Simple examples include scars left over by surgery or a localized infection. Myofascial therapy helps release the built-up tension. This healing uses specific hand motions to help unwind the fascia and often involves craniosacral work to be done as well. Your body will naturally begin to heal as fluid and unprompted movements help reduce built up pressure.

 

Scheduling Your Session

 

Scheduling your therapy session is easy. Simply call or text 928-282-0904 or email info@staysedona.com to get started. Sessions are available by appointment only in the Sedona area. Sessions tend to fill up quickly, so we recommend scheduling in advance.
