    L’Auberge de Sedona

Two Roads Hospitality has assumed management of L’Auberge de Sedona and Orchards Inn, which are now part of the Denver-based company’s Destination Hotels collection, which features more than 40 properties. L’Auberge de Sedona features 4,480 square feet of event space in addition to several outdoor venues, 62 luxury cottages, 21 traditional lodgestyle guest rooms and the five-bedroom Creekhouse. Many of the guest rooms feature new furniture and design elements. Additional highlights are two renovated creekside culinary concepts, Cress on Oak Street and Etch Kitchen + Bar, and an artist-in-residence program in collaboration with Sedona-based Goldenstein Gallery. 

The neighboring Orchards Inn is a family-friendly property with guest rooms featuring in-room gas fireplaces, kitchenettes and balconies with panoramic views of the Sedona Red Rocks and Snoopy Rock. Groups can use the on-site restaurant for gatherings as well as the space at L’Auberge de Sedona. 

Four Seasons Resort and Residences Jackson Hole welcomed Emma Matilda, a 16-weekold Bernese mountain dog last May. She has been melting the hearts of guests, groups and staff ever since. Tillie is named after the wife of William O. Owen who was the first, along with three other climbers, to ascend to the summit of Grand Teton in 1898.
