Located on 25 acres, Grace Grove is an organically elegant retreat center, an oasis in the desert. Features includes 7 bedrooms, full-size kitchen, sauna, Oak Creek waterfront, trails, fireplace, & volleyball court.

The space

Grace Grove Retreat Center is a 5500 sq.foot building with 7 guest rooms, a large beautiful kitchen, wrap around living room with plenty of lounging room, a large porch with couches and eating table for 18 people. There are 3 indoor bathrooms that are along the same hall as the bedrooms. We also have a 550 sq. foot Yoga Barn with a wood burning stove if your group needs a separate meeting space. There is also a roof top porch that is GREAT for star gazing at night.
There are 5 indoor rooms; 1 larger room with a king bed, 4 smaller rooms with 2 twin beds in each room. Currently 2 of the twin rooms are made up as king beds. We use a 3” organic wool king topper to unify the 2 twin beds to make them into a king bed. Just let us know how you want those rooms, as 2 twins or 1 king. We also have 2 outdoor “Garden” rooms which are enclosed rooms but are not on the central air conditioning or heating system. These rooms have space heaters and fans and can be used all year round although they don’t get toasty warm, but very cozy sleeping in them during the winter and warm during the day and wonderful sleeping conditions at night during the winter. These rooms have 1 double bed in each room. The rooms have organic mattresses and locally crafted wood furniture to ensure that there are no forms of toxins in the environment.
Our team consists of my husband Morgan and I, and we have a suite on the opposite end of the facility. We also have 3 staff members who live in trailers on the property. Our goal is to create a sacred space for your group to have as much fun and privacy as possible. Because we still have a property and facility to maintain and we live on-site you will see some of us pop in and out of the kitchen or be on the land working. We will be quiet little helpers in the background that you may see every once in awhile.
The kitchen tends to be to be grand central station for most groups. It is a very beautiful kitchen and well equipped. We will clear out a large refrigerator for your group and you will have plenty of space for dry products as well. The kitchen drawers and cabinets are labeled well since it is a community kitchen that is heavily used. Our team members will be very mindful to ease in and out of the kitchen around your group. When we are in the kitchen, we will support your group by helping to put away some dishes, wipe down counter tops, take trash out and basic cleaning. We do ask that your group please wash their own dishes and clean up after themselves. You will need to bring all your own food unless we have made other arrangements for our team to provide food/meals for your group.
The center has central heating and air-conditioning. In the fall and winter months we have a wood burning stove in the main hall that heats up the house very well. Either our team members will keep the stove going throughout the day and night or we will ask that you designate someone from your crew to be the “fire keeper”. There is a T.V room with cable and a DVD player and wifi is available. One of the most spectacular things about this property is that Oak Creek wraps 3/4 around the property. It is a lush 25 acre Oasis in the desert.

Guest access

Enjoy all the amenities of our home, including: 3 full bathrooms with showers, private outdoor sauna, front patio fireplace with plenty of cushioned couches and built-in seating, outdoor dining table option, driveway fountain, outdoor swings, and lush green landscape next to the rushing water of Oak Creek.

Interaction with guests

Our facility is a retreat center and the 2 owners, Puma & Morgan live on-site along with a few staff members who live on the property to maintain it. We are available to assist with your vacation however we can.

Other things to note

You will need to bring all your own food. We will provide kitchen equipment. You will definitely want to bring food for breakfast, it is a 15 minute drive to the closest town.

I hosted a group of women at this property. Puma and Morgan were very kind, gracious hosts. The proximity to the creek was fantastic and we hosted yoga in the barn which was super peaceful. Because this property is isolated, we struggled with spiders and ants. It didn't bother most of the people in our group, but a few were concerned. This was not due to negligence or cleanliness to be clear, just that the property is surrounded by wildlife and vegetation. It's just part of the experience!

Grace Grove is a quiet, unique, carefully constructed oasis which was perfect for my meditation retreat. We loved the separate yoga space, the comfortable outdoor dining and lounging space, and all of the wonderful surprises like amethyst bio-mat and infrared sauna. The kitchen was incredibly well stocked and (of course) being on the creek was a huge treat. Puma was lovely, gracious and very accommodating to the needs of my group. We had a great week and I hope to come back someday!

The experience was fantastic. The property is spacious and beautiful, the staff were all extremely friendly. While the intention of our stay was purely for the accommodations, you can definitely feel that sense of serenity you get when surrounded by such positive energy. I feel inspired and hope this experience has opened up a whole new world of possibilities.

Puma and her team were welcoming and wonderful. The pictures do not do this place justice. It is a truly magical venue. The common space has high ceilings with sacred objects throughout the comfy interior. The kitchen is fully stocked with all supplies necessary for serving a large group. The yoga barn is a nice space for a change of pace for ceremony or movement rituals. It is 20-30 minutes from several amazing hiking destinations in Sedona. I highly recommend Grace Grove as a location to host a retreat.

Puma welcomed us to her large home/retreat and our visit to Sedona was magical. The remote nature of this place made this an attractive destination (although Sedona is only 20 mins drive). Our stay was enjoyable d/t proximity to nature and the kids enjoyed walks to the nearby stream and trails.

I used Puma's center for a work retreat (13 people) and had a great experience. It was a great spot for us to spend one day in Sedona and the other at the Grand Canyon. Puma and her staff made us feel right at home from the moment we arrived. The kitchen was fully stocked with all the cooking utensils we needed. The living room with fireplace was the perfect place to relax. The location is pretty remote but as long as you follow Puma's driving directions you'll be fine! (The dirt road is pretty well maintained but there is a stream crossing...if there's rain in the forecast make sure you have a vehicle with some clearance.) I would definitely book again!

We couldn't have asked for a better location to spend Thanksgiving! The Retreat is amazing and had so much space for all of us to enjoy. Everything was in great condition and ready for us settle in!
