This dashing property, a cushy but laid-back and pet-friendly adobe hacienda near Sedona’s art district, is the brainchild of owner Steve Segner, a devotee of the Arts and Crafts movement of the early 1900s. He searched high and low for lustrous Utah river rocks, reclaimed juniper and oak beams, and authentic Tiffany and Roycroft furnishings to build and decorate this temple to turn-of-the-20th-century design. Not everything is period, however: In-room flat-screen TVs, DVD players, and high-speed Internet are a hit with El Portal’s guests, who also enjoy spa, pool, and gym privileges next door at Los Abrigados Resort.
