MEET THE INNKEEPERS

Lisa and Dawn -- Prescott Pines Inn Innkeepers
Check Availability Button Dawn at Prescott Pines innAfter searching the country over for the perfect bed and breakfast venture, Dawn Delaney and Lisa Carlson decided to make Prescott, Arizona, their new home and purchased the Prescott Pines Inn in March of 2011. It was only a short move from the greater Phoenix area, but a welcome respite from the summer’s heat in the Valley of the Sun. And those snow shovels and winter wear they left behind when they moved from Maine? Well, the highlight of their first visit to the Inn as prospective owners was a major snowstorm! Yep, Prescott may be located in Arizona, but the mile-high elevation provides a four-season climate with occasional snowfall.

Since purchasing the inn, Dawn and Lisa have been full-time, hands on owners and innkeepers, remodeling many of the guest rooms, creating more intimate patio settings scattered across the property’s acre of century-old shade trees, and have continued the tradition of gracious hospitality extended to guests by the previous owners.

Dawn, a sort of “Jill of all trades”, previously owned a photography studio, retired as a major in the U.S. Army where she spent time in logistics and food service, and has a very broad background in social work. She is the main chef creating incredible breakfast entrees daily and has been known to entertain guests with her extensive gallery of kitchen aprons.

Lisa at Prescott Pines InnLisa has spent many years in various financial roles within the paper industry and continues to do financial consulting. She has always loved entertaining, is quite the cook herself and is thrilled to own her first pair of Western boots because after all, Prescott is home to the “world’s oldest rodeo” every July. Both Dawn and Lisa love the outdoors, baking, gardening and tending to their guests, and were rewarded for their first year’s hard work by being voted the #1 Bed and Breakfast in Prescott for the 9th year in a row.

Dawn and Lisa welcome you to the Prescott Pines Inn, where two signs greet you upon entering: “all who enter as guests, leave as friends”, and “until further notice, celebrate everything”. They hope you do both!

During our last stay at the Prescott Pines Inn, my husband and I were moving into our new home in Prescott. Lisa and Dawn provided the "TLC" that we needed during the stress and strain of moving. Not only was the room comfortable, the amenities plentiful, and their spirits as gracious as ever, but the gals did everything they could to make our transition easier, including packing a "breakfast bag" for us on the day the movers came. It was filled with nutritious well-balanced goodies that lasted throughout the entire day!! Even though we now live in Prescott, we will continue to have family and friends stay at the Inn. We know they will be in good hands!! – H.K., Prescott, Arizona

The Prescott part of my holiday was greatly enhanced by staying at the Prescott Pines Inn. I was travelling alone and really appreciated Dawn and Lisa and their staff for being so kind and making me so welcome. They provide a unique service; it’s so much more than having a clean room and convenient location. The breakfasts are wonderful, an ever changing feast that kept me going all day. I enjoyed the video library which I used in the evenings. There were other little kindnesses as well: directions for getting around and finding me a fab jeep tour. But I must say, the ultimate was even being loaned a pair of shoes for hiking!. I would strongly recommend Prescott as a place to visit and The Prescott Pines Inn as "the" place to stay. – J.M., Newquay, United Kingdom
