The  Fall Equinox is upon us and we finally feel like a change is truly in the air. Fall is typically a busy time of year for us at Mescal Canyon Retreat… we’ve already planted our fall garden and we have lots of visitors coming from all around the country, and world! Before we turn toward our fall activities, however, we wanted to take a moment to reflect on some of the incredible people we met over the summer. We were very fortunate to have some wonderful guests from all over the country that made this summer very special… we’ve met the most interesting people and we feel that the time we spend together here at Mescal Canyon Retreat is something special.

Here are some comments from some of our amazing summer guests. Thanks for making this summer great!

“This could not have been a more perfect and transformational eight days. GREAT location to slip out to Jerome, Cottonwood, the canyons, the red rocks, the desert, the art, the food, etc., but…it was truly a struggle every day to feel compelled to leave at all because this destination is so lovely.Butterflies, birds, bees, kitties, chickens, vistas, beautiful architecture, doggies, gardens, massage, stars, fresh food, alternative energies, incredible and beautiful folks who introduced me to more incredible folks. No road noise, no plane noise, no people noise…silence, peace and a breeze. Even the rainstorms were heavenly to experience in this location. I slid in late with my soul on empty and left with my glass overflowing and trying to give back as much as I had received.” Stephanie, September 2013

“Gorgeous, peaceful and private location. Very aesthetic and comfortable lodging. Our stay was short so we did not get to spend time with the hosts, but the welcome was warm and the fresh-from-the-garden herbs and eggs from the hens breakfast was wonderful and attentively served. We had a truly relaxing visit and would definitely book it for our next Verde Valley visit!” Toni, August 2013

“Our stay at Mescal Canyon Retreat was superb. The location and architecture meld seamlessly – a haven resting between sky and canyon. We were delighted by a lovely view of the stars, birdsong, and very happy dogs. On a road-trip cross country we could only stay one night, but if we were back in the region, we’d definitely consider staying there again.” Paul, June 2013
