Like no other place on earth, Sedona is a celebration of nature and culture, quiet wisdom and bursts of adrenaline. Sedona has long been a vortex seeker’s destination. There is a spiritual power through our red rock destination that is undeniable. L’Auberge de Sedona is at the center of it all, connecting guests to Sedona’s various wonders through a special palette of handcrafted experiences.

What is a Vortex?

A Naturally Centered Vortex Experience 1According to, “Sedona vortexes (the proper grammatical form ‘vortices’ is rarely used) are thought to be swirling centers of energy that are conducive to healing, meditation and self-exploration. These are places where the earth seems especially alive with energy. Many people feel inspired, recharged or uplifted after visiting a vortex.” Whatever your belief, we are sure that being out in nature, in Sedona, creates a strong sense of being and an alive spirit.

The Vortex Treehouse

While all of Sedona is considered to be a vortex, we like to think there is a special feeling that comes from being elevated in a quiet space with an awe-inspiring view. This is the thought behind the Vortex Treehouse – designed to be a spiritual sanctuary complemented by expansive views of the surrounding red rocks.

Throughout the history of L’Auberge de Sedona, the spot where the Vortex Treehouse is perched has been a sought-after location for a private dinner, an intimate wedding ceremony, or a spot to journal and reflect. After careful consideration, it became just that – a place to tune out life’s distractions and tune into true intentions amidst Sedona’s vortices.
