One of the things we want to offer our “RomanceRoomers” is variety! Being in Arizona, we are so fortunate to have many choices when it comes to a weekend getaway. In a few hours, we can be on the California coast, in the high deserts of Arizona, New Mexico or Utah, or, as we share here in this featured property, in the cool mountains of northern Arizona. We found a very romantic bed and breakfast in Flagstaff called the The Inn at 410 – located in an historic area of the town – with much to offer its guests!
We arrived at the Inn after normal check-in, so it was a great opportunity to experience how the innkeeper handled this type of check-in, which can sometimes be confusing for a guest at B&B’s. Our experience was a good one – Gordon, the innkeeper, had clearly communicated what to expect and where we would find the key and our room location. General information about the rooms, the inn, and the schedule for breakfast, etc. was prominently posted in the front room. We were able to walk through the “living room” and breakfast area and get oriented to the house prior to heading to our guest room. You will see in the videos that the common areas were so charming, decorated with antiques and comfortable furnishings that really reflected a homey, welcoming feeling. There were cookies, tea and hot chocolate available to us as well – a nice touch that we appreciated at the later hour.
We stayed in The Conservatory, a room with the décor consistent with its name. The video was shot as we walked into the room, so be sure to watch it to get a feeling for the space and the romantic vibe! It was a beautiful room with a unique layout – including a fireplace in a nicely furnished sitting area, a canopied (and comfortable) bed, and steps up to the bath and vanity area. As Gordon said in part of the interview, it is a room where a couple could hide out for days! It was quiet, clean, comfortable and offered a very private and romantic experience. We have also added bonus footage further down this article of The Tea Room.
The inn was easy to find and is located in a quiet area of town, within walking distance to a variety of restaurants (their website offers recommendations). We loved the easy stroll to dinner and the change in scenery and weather! We are so fortunate to have this escape only 2 hours from Phoenix! The next morning there was a full breakfast served in the breakfast room, plenty of reading materials about area attractions and Flagstaff’s history, and places to sit (inside and out) to enjoy the surroundings and plan the day.
Why RomanceRoom.com recommends The Inn at 410:
Andrew says…Arriving on a cool night, it was nice to have the main house be warm and cozy. We loved how large the rooms were with many even having their own spacious sitting area. The main house and breakfast area is quite comfortable and overlooks the garden area. It is all within a short walk to the downtown area and popular bars/restaurants. Definitely a B&B to try ………. in the name of romance of course!
Mary says…Flagstaff is a town that offers a great change of pace, referring both to weather and to the pace of life in general. The Inn at 410, with its location and clean, comfy accommodations, offers a great romantic getaway experience for couples. Gordon has done a great job of making his vision of the inn a reality, reflecting the feeling of the turn of the 20th century, with modern touches. I would like to return and stay in one of the other rooms as they are all different and unique. All around, a welcoming place with charm and warmth!
RomanceRoom.com recommends The Inn at 410 as one of the most romantic Bed and Breakfast Inns in Arizona.
As our bonus footage for this episode, check out the Tea Room at the Inn at 410. It is another spacious room and is adjacent to the fireplace and main room, plus has a view over the garden area.
