As longtime residents of Sedona, the owners wanted to share their vision of a building designed with the same organic materials that grace Sedona’s Red Rock formations. Years of planning went into the design of this magnificent hilltop venue. It became paramount that their efforts reflected something that looked like it had been there for decades, blending with the natural Sedona formations. With that in mind the venue was constructed out of imported sun baked adobe bricks. In 2015, an outdoor circular Ceremony Terrace incorporating the four elements; earth, fire, air and water was built to enhance our guest’s experience. A vestibule shaped water feature and rusted metal fire feature merge with the open-air terrace bringing the elements together. Large windows strategically placed in the Montage ballroom heighten your Red Rock experience. Awe inspiring Red Rock formations will surround you at every turn.
