Briar Patch Inn Hotel Review: Cradled at the base of red rock mountains, the Briar Patch Inn features eighteen charming cottages spread over nine lush, wooded acres. Cabins boast full kitchens or kitchenettes, private patios, spectacular views, wood-burning fireplaces and southwestern touches with Native American arts and crafts. From June through mid-September a classical guitarist and violinist play creekside at breakfast time. Listen to the strains of jazz, Vivaldi and Bach as you tuck into the hearty, all-vegetarian meal that includes an egg dish, freshly-made granola, muffins and pastries, and lots of fresh fruit. (Enjoy it in the lodge, on a tray in your cabin, or creekside.) Extra indulgences can include an open-air massage and a dip in a swimmin’ hole fed by the clear, chill spring waters of Oak Creek. This is a place perfectly designed for connecting with nature and each other---once guests check in they often aren’t seen until they check out.
