Northern Arizona Restful Vacations

There is nothing more serene than watching the Rocky Mountains from a quiet and comfortable space. The Grand Canyon Bed and Breakfast has provided just such a treasured getaway for 6 years and enjoys sharing this luxury with guests from all over the world in their desire for restful vacations. The landscaping is lush and beautiful, boasting mostly drought resistant plants and watered with reclaimed water. Del and Sheryl pride themselves on keeping their home running green and environmentally friendly to aid Northern Arizona in their efforts to preserve the beauty of the landscape and surrounding history. The wonderful sounds of a happy fountain cascade and bounce along the rocks thanks to a recirculating pump.

 

The expressive clouds can be viewed from around the structure and regularly provide a fabulous show ending with Arizona’s famous and spectacular sunsets. Whether you have spent a day sight seeing or hiking, shopping or wandering, you can return to luxury and contentment in spacious rooms.

A Green Bed and Breakfast; Eco-friendly Business

December 19th, 2013 by Del & Sheryl Terry

The Grand Canyon B&B is a green Bed and Breakfast.

Here are some of the eco-friendly steps we have taken to ensure we leave a smaller mark on the environment. We hope you will use any of these green ideas (where possible on your property), and share with us your ideas and suggestions to help us become even more of a “green bed and breakfast”, and to help us all become better stewards of this beautiful and fragile Earth so it can be passed on to our descendants.
1. Construction and decorating our B&B was completed in 2005 with eco-friendly materials including double pane windows, structurally insulated panels which have extremely high R values, excellent insulation (using recycled newspaper particles), and siding made from beetle-killed Ponderosa Pine.
2. All B&B and personal laundry is done in-house, with low water/high centrifuge washers. Drying time is greatly diminished. Laundry is washed and rinsed on cold, with all stains pre-treated with environmentally friendly products.
3. The laundry detergent we use is biodegradable, produced in a neighboring state, and environmentally friendly. Our cleaners are made in-house.
4. Compact fluorescent bulbs are used throughout the B&B. Burned out CFB’s are sent to a special recycling center that reclaims the mercury so no discarded bulbs are placed in landfills.

6. Purchases are made in bulk to reduce packaging waste and vehicle fuel consumption.
7. We love organic and local ingredients. Fresh fruit and vegetables are purchased from local organic farmers and natural food outlets.
8. Prior to the development of Grand Canyon Bed and Breakfast, the land had been denuded of the natural trees and shrubs. Since 2001, more than 500 trees, shrubs and perennials have been added to the property.
9. No potable water is used in our landscaping.
10. A waterfall and stream using area boulders was designed and constructed; it recycles grey water from our sinks, showers, and washing machines. This stream (along with the fountain in the backyard) has created a natural ecosystem for the property.

12. An herb garden planted next to the grey water fountain outside the kitchen provides fresh flavors for the breakfast foods. It is also frequently used by migrating flocks of birds.
13. Whenever an item no longer functions for its designed purpose, the staff creatively looks for a different purpose. For example, towels and linens no longer in service for guests are used for personal needs, become cleaning rags, donated to shelters, or a quilt may become a wall hanging.
