I had a wonderful experience "Down by the River." Mike and Angie were great hosts and served gourmet type breakfasts. The room was spacious and comfortable and access to a patio and living room area truly gave a homey feeling. It was in a great location for a home base for day trips. Mike had suggestions for delicious dining in... More

They have created a B&B with upscale ambience. Their furnishings of beautiful antiques and Southwestern memorabilia create a comfortable as well as... More

I chose this B & B from the great pictures on their website. I stay pretty exclusively in B & B's when I travel, so I've come to understand that the pictures are usually a bit better than the reality. But this place was such a pleasant surprise. The rooms are so spacious and the attention to detail in the... More

I had the pleasure of staying here during the 2014 spring bird migration. After visiting nearby Kartchner Caverns [also wonderful] we arrived to a little oasis out in the middle of nowhere. The fact that we had to drive a bit on a gravel road made it all the better to enjoy this secluded jewel. Decorating is lots of fun... More

Mike and Angie are such wonderful hosts! We arrived in the late afternoon knowing we had dinner plans in Benson and needed time to settle and then travel the 30 minutes over to Benson - Mike greeted us in the drive way and quickly showed us inside since it was rather chilly and windy on this January day. After walking... More

We knew we found our getaway after driving over dirt roads, cattle crossings and through the cattle gate. The beautiful coral-coloured Spanish style B&B sprawled out before us as our hosts came out to welcome us. There are as many eclectic artifacts and plants outside as there are indoors. We chose the Mission room. I was delighted to discover the... More

We very much recommend staying at Down by the River! We spent three nights while exploring SE Arizona. The hosts are very welcoming, and our room and the food were great. Nature lovers will like all of the birds at the feeders. When we left, we saw a javelina on the side of the road!

This was our second visit to Down by the River and it certainly won't be our last. Everything is wonderful, the hospitality is first rate, the rooms are so comfy and unique, the breakfasts - well they are so good you can't wait to get to the table. The location may seem remote but it is so convenient for a... More

I stayed three nights here and felt right at home. Mike and Angie take excellent care of their guests. Everything is beautiful and beautifully kept. The breakfasts are out of this world! The rooms are all excellent. I spent a lot of time sitting out on the patio watching their many birds at their bird feeders. There is also an... More
