You might think an inn in the middle of the Sonoran desert would not be a cozy and comfortable place to stay, but you would be completely wrong if you choose to visit the Inn at Eagle Mountain in Scottsdale, Arizona. This beautiful, Southwestern-designed Inn is perched beside a lovely lake which reflects the incredible blue Arizona sky during the day and the warm, welcoming golden lights of the Inn at night.
The Inn offers several suite choices from a King Mini Suite to several interesting themed suites. I can personally recommend the two-queen bedroom with a cozy kiva gas fireplace, handy sitting area for two, a large whirlpool jacuzzi and wonderful bath amenities. You will also have a roomy closet, coffee maker, a refrigerators and free wireless Internet access. Beautifully designed in a Southwestern motif, the suites reflect the stark and unusual beauty of the Sonoran Desert, which surrounds the Inn with sand and fantastically shaped cacti and other desert plants.
Cool off from the desert heat in the outdoor pool and Jacuzzi which overlook the 18th Fairway of Eagle Mountain or, in the cooler weather, sit in the fireplace alcove by the pool terrace and just enjoy the view. If you would rather play golf than enjoy the view, The Inn at Eagle Mountain is the perfect golfer’s retreat. Set up a tee time up to 90 days in advance at one of the top courses in Scottsdale, the Golf Club at Eagle Mountain. And if you would rather just relax, plan an indulgent spa treatment at the nearby spa or schedule a massage right in your suite. A massage and room service dinner in your suite in front of the fireplace – heaven!
The Inn at Eagle Mountain offers several different packages which include some great rates on getaways offering a variety of activities. When you are ready to get away from your comfortable home away from home at the Inn, Scottsdale and Phoenix are both close by with plenty of shopping, dining and sightseeing options. Both cities are known as perfect vacation spots because of their more than 300 days of glorious sunlight a year. You will find an unlimited array of activities to keep you busy from morning till night. Take in incredible views of the desert from high in the clouds in a hot air balloon, explore the beauties of the area on a morning hike, or float down the banks of the Salt River on a raft. You can also kayak on Saguaro Lake, take a bike tour of the area, or take a Jeep for a rough ride through the desert.
Visit Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin West, tour the incredible Heard Museum and stop for lunch at a local café like Cibo. You will not run out of things to do in this area and, after a long day of sightseeing and touring, you will be so glad to return to your comfy suite and warm your toes in front of your very own fireplace!
