Close to anything you want to see, but remote. Only night noises were coyotes and owls. Decor is desert/Indian and is like being in a museum. Better than a family visit because you're not mad at anyone. Great place; I'll go back.

We can only echo all the wonderful reviews that others have written and say that this is by far the best B&B we have ever experienced. We stayed for two nights in the Bird Room and would have liked to linger longer - so there will have to be a next time! The breakfasts are fabulous and we like the... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at this B&B. After sampling some older B&Bs it was a treat and refreshing to go to one that was newer construction with all the modern amenities. It's a fun location for bird watching with a wide porch and feeders to attract the birds. Star gazing is also terrific there because it is out far... More

My husband and I spent 4 nights at Down By the River. One of the best B&Bs we've ever been to....period! Our room (The Bird Room) was huge and decorated with all kinds of bird-themed items - quilts, bird houses, nests, plus old-time photos and antique compacts for powder and lipstick. Really charming. The super friendly innkeepers, Mike and Angie,... More

I visited here with my 13 year old daughter in late March. Perfect weather. The place is *beautifully* built and decorated - with so many different antiques & objects. Fun to just look around. We walked down to the river & had fun wading upstream a ways. We had a fire in the patio fireplace & roasted marshmallows. We played... More

When we decided to visit some places in southern Arizona, we stuck a pin in a map to find a place to stay. Down By The River Bed and Breakfast was conveniently located and we decided to take a chance. We were greeted by Mike and Angie and felt at home immediately. The B&B is like a museum with lots...

We stayed at Down By the River Bed and Breakfast for four nights, Mike & Angie made us feel like part of the family, great breakfast, and cozy accommodations. Scenery was wonderful. Hope to be back real soon.

We stayed at Down By the River B&B for only one night, and wished we were there a bit longer! The hosts, Mike and Angie, were very friendly and accommodating - I think there were three different special diet requests at our breakfast table, and everyone was very pleased with their meal! The B&B itself was spotless and designer-gorgeous, but... More

Quite a find in country. Worth the drive. The breakfast was amazing, room was spotless, great information too. We will definately go back again. Oh, and the sheets smell wonderful. Such attention to detail.

We stayed at Down By The River B&B for three nights and enjoyed three incredible breakfasts! Each day we set out on our adventures and each night we returned to a fresh-baked treat, a cozy room, and a starry night sky! We loved having the patio and a place to grill our steaks. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in the area.... More
