Cathedral Rocks at Sunset with Moon


Sedona has gained acclaim as one of the most beautiful places in Arizona, perhaps second only to the Grand Canyon.

The scenic beauty of the area provides one selfie moment after another…it’s really hard to take a bad picture here. The public lands of Sedona have amazing trails for hiking and biking, and the area guided jeep tours that traverse forest and red rock are world famous. Make the Tavern Hotel your home base for exploring Sedona and the Verde Valley. The Tavern Hotel is located just 20 minutes from the red rock beauty of Sedona on Main Street in Old Town Cottonwood. 

Outside of the iconic views, Sedona is believed to be the home of psychic-energy vortexes. A vortex is thought to be a special spot on the earth where energy is either entering into the earth or projecting out of the earth’s plane. Although all of Sedona is considered to be a vortex, there are specific locations within Sedona that have been identified where the energy is more intense and where you are more likely to actually feel the energy. Cathedral Rock, the Chapel of the Holy CrossAirport MesaBell Rock and Boynton Canyon are all easily accessible & recognized as vortexes. As you go to these places, you may see people doing meditation or yoga to take advantage of the special healing qualities of Sedona’s vortex energy.

While you explore the area, make The Tavern Hotel your homebase!
