Flying Eagle Country Retreat is situated well above Cottonwood in the foothills of Mingus Mountain, with a spectacular view of the mountain and the red rocks of Sedona in the distance. There are no noises at all, other than the wind blowing through the trees, and the occasional howling of coyotes at night (a sound I love). It is such a refreshing change from Sedona with its constant airplane and helicopter noise, yet it is only a 20-minute drive to Sedona. I am completely nourished by total quiet—if you share that quality, then I would highly recommend the Flying Eagle. It is a healing place to stay, and a great place for your own “retreat” from the rigors of life. The Flying Eagle Country Bed & Breakfast is surrounded by native landscaping and is frequently visited by native wildlife, including coyote, javelina, deer, fox, and a variety of birds (cardinals, quail, ravens, hawks, etc.). The convenient continental breakfast will get each day off to a wonderful start. All rooms feature private bathrooms, satellite TV & wireless internet for your enjoyment. Each room has its own unique appeal; click on the room links to view photos of each room. The Verde Canyon Railroad is 10 minutes from the B&B and offers a trip from Clarkdale to Perkinsville and back—a memorable experience! Amazing views of areas accessible only on this train. A scenic train trip through Verde Canyon, with numerous opportunities to observe Sinagua Indian ruins and a variety of waterfowl and wildlife. This railroad tour provides the only way to view this unique and protected wilderness area. The Verde Canyon Railroad and Flying Eagle have partnered on some packages combining a night’s lodging with a trip on the train. The 3 day retreats include a double or triple occupancy room at the inn, a big country breakfast, lunch, snacks and beverages available during the workshops. Dinner on your own. $300 per person, in 3 lovely shared B&B Rooms. Limited to 6-10 participants at each workshop.
