History of Sedona's Apple Orchard Inn


Apple Orchard Bed & BreakfastAnn Jordan, is the youngest daughter of Walter and Ruth Jordan, important early settlers of Sedona. The family's homestead is now the Sedona Historical Museum located in the Jordan Historical Park, just a short walk from the Inn. The Jordan family raised apples and worked closely with some of the other early settlers including Jim Thompson and the Schnebleys. In 1955, Ann and her husband began construction on their home which is now the Apple Orchard Inn Bed and Breakfast.

Ann found the original house plan in the 1955 edition of Home & Garden. Using only local materials, stone by stone, the house was painstakingly built over several years while the young couple lived in a small shanty on the edge of the property.

During that time, Ann gave birth to the first three of their six children. In 1992, the house was put up for sale and Ann moved to Scottsdale. The house was extensively renovated including the finishing of the lower floor and the addition of the back patios and hot tub. The Apple Orchard Inn provides lodging that captures the spirit of "Old Sedona" and the settlers that scratched out a living one apple at a time.
