Irith & Sam
Irith and Sam have been married for 42 years and have a wonderful loving family of two daughters, one son, and five grandsons. With their children they have traveled the world and lived in England and Germany as well as in Pennsylvania, Virginia, North Carolina, and Southern California. In every place they have made numerous friends and their home was always the hub of activity to many social events. With the kitchen as the house center of gravity, friends and family always gathered to prepare and enjoy elaborate and cheerful dinner parties.
Sam was a College Professor for some twenty-five years teaching Textile Engineering and Technology. He wrote a number of textbooks and educated generations of undergraduate and graduate students. Although he now devotes his time to Boots and Saddles in Sedona, he still (rarely) consult to companies developing textile components that are implanted into the human body. Sam is also a chef that greatly enjoys cooking for his guests. His breakfast creations are unique and as he puts it “I will not feed my guests anything they can order at Denny’s”.
Irith is an Interior Designer and finds a lot of pleasure in decorating the Inn and taking care of all the unique touches that combine the flavor of the Old West with the comfort and luxury you come to expect. Irith is also an artist creating three dimensional wall art made of silk and other fine fabrics.
Sam’s and Irith’s favorite part of being Innkeepers is always you their guest. They will take care of all your needs in Sedona and make sure that your stay is memorable. They would love you to join their ever-growing circle of friends.

Our stay here at Boots and Saddles has been an unforgettable one and it won’t be the last. We haven’t stopped smiling since we arrived. The personal attention – from the in-room massage, to the chocolate chip cookies, to the bubble baths – it has all been wonderful. Most of all we’ve enjoyed your company and getting to know you! Until our next visit…
