Think of it as summer camp…for adults. Set against the backdrop of the breathtaking Red Rock vistas and alongside the woodsy curves of Oak Tree Creek, L’Auberge de Sedona is “rouging it” in luxury.
Instead of bunk beds you get well-appointed cabin suites. Rather than cafeteria food you get fine cuisine from culinary masters. The alternative to a dip in the lake? How about being submerged in tranquility at the spa? Yes, you can have the great outdoors and a whole lot of pampering at the same time.
