Oak Creek Canyon is located north of Sedona along 89A's beautiful switchbacks towards Flagstaff. Oak Creek Canyon is a local favorite spot as it supplies as much cool, creek fun in the summer as it does golden leaves during the fall.

But on the other end, the adult in you can have a peaceful retreat or romantic getaway in a cozy cottage. This truly special corner of Sedona offers a change of pace and a private place to escape into a cooler, more shaded wooded fantasy amidst the looming red rock canyon walls.

There are a few hotels in Oak Creek Canyon, all of which are well-appointed with all the expected hotel amenities.

Cabins, cottages, and cabin-like B&Bs are very popular in Oak Creek Canyon as they offer a cozy, comfortable, serene, more mountain vacation feel. No matter where you choose to stay in Oak Creek Canyon, you'll love its peaceful ambiance, proximity to the water of Oak Creek, and all the small adventures waiting to be had just steps outside your door!
