Heritage Inn, Hospitality And History

June 27, 2017 , , , ,

The Heritage Inn in Snowflake, AZ is perfectly positioned in the middle of an historical neighborhood. Surrounded by restored buildings, the Inn stands out because of the flower gardens. The luscious rose collection welcomes guests at 161 Main Street. The ample shaded front porch is home to a couple of active humming bird feeders, vintage furniture, and charming outdoor art. One is instantly transported to a specific time. The decor throughout the inn reflects the historic legacy of this well restored home.  Portraits of the original inhabitants and some traces of their story remind the visitor of the founding of this small town.  We stayed in the Mary Maude Porter room, named for one of the first inhabitants of the home, which had been built in the 1890’s.

We went to Snowflake to escape the heat and go to a lavender farm that was having a festival.  The heat followed us up the mountain, so the relief was not forthcoming from mother nature.  We decided not to go out to the farm because it was just too hot to deliver what we wanted.  Instead, we investigated the little town of Snowflake, then the adjacent town of Taylor, and checked in to the room a little early chill in the air conditioning.  The weather was pleasant enough to take a stroll in the evening, and we walked around the museums and historic homes that were not open on Saturday. There is a good display in the small Heritage Park next to the inn that  details the founding of the town and the families who developed area.

Our room had a French door that opened onto the patio, where a fountain decorated a lovely garden.  Tables and chairs are placed for guests to use for relaxing, or for breakfast service.  We chose to eat by the fountain in the morning, when the weather had cooled down a bit. Our fancy table setting and gourmet breakfast in the cool setting gave us what we had come to experience, a complete change of pace.  When I travel I am looking or something different from day to day existence.  The hosts of the Heritage Inn, JoAnne and Craig, give guests superior service in an elegant atmosphere of private, historical chic.  We liked the feeling of elegant leisure, and plan to return when we know the weather will be cooler. Next time I will plan ahead and arrange to see the tour of the historical homes.  The tiny town has much to offer the history buff, and the Heritage Inn offers superior accommodation from which to see it.

This is a gorgeous place. It sounds like a great place to visit when it’s not triple digits.
