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

If you ENJOY being "off the beaten path", beautiful mountain views, seclusion, and AWESOME BREAKFASTS.....this is THE place for you! We stayed 4 nights in the "Bird Room"--wished it was MORE. Our first morning, other guests left early for exploring; we talked with Mike & Angie for over an hour! Over the next days, we learned more about them, plus... More

We stayed at DBTR B&B on a recent trip to SE Arizona. We were looking for an isolated, quiet, remote place to escape city life. This place exceeded our expectations. Our hosts were warm and welcoming, the breakfasts outstanding, the room and building comfortable. I am unable to say more than the others have already said. If you want peace... More

The quiet, off-the-beaten track-location of Down by the River B&B makes it a peaceful and relaxing experience. The property is decorated with antiques and memorabilia, and provides lots of interesting browsing. Breakfasts were superb! The hosts were helpful and friendly without being interfering.

As you walk in the door of this beautiful hacienda, you can see that great thought and care was taken regarding the decorations, layout and comfort of their guests. Angie and Bill are gracious hosts and go out of their way to make you feel welcome in your home away from home. They have a beautiful patio area, which opens... More

First consideration: If you are flying in and renting a car with the idea of driving any unpaved roads (such as getting to Down By the River B & B and into canyons), by all means spend the extra money on a four-wheel. Arriving in daylight also makes a big difference. Trust the directions on the website. Do not rely... More

This is a little off the beaten track but well worth it. This was our first visit but will be our annual anniversary spot. The room was very comfortable and Angie & Mike are great. Come as strangers, leave as friends

We were excited to go here, but quickly found out, the level of comfort was lacking for us. No comfortable chairs in our room, one tAble, with two hard chairs. For me, and underline me, the bed was very uncomfortable, so much so we had to leave after one night, after paying two nights. The B&B is nice, just lacking... More

DBTRBAB, Owner at Down By The River Bed And Breakfast, responded to this review

The guest has commented upon the lack of comfortable furniture and about the bed being hard in her room. Although we are sorry that she felt this way, she didn't air her complaint to us until the next morning when she bluntly told us that this was an unsatisfactory sleeping experience for her. She couldn't sleep in the bed because... More

DBTRBAB is a beautiful adobe building with four rooms in SE Arizona style. Loaded with treasures like furniture, artwork and lovely carpets on tiled floors. Angie and Mike welcome everyone with Arizona charm, lots of knowledgeable information on to-dos in the area, and gourmet breakfasts every morning. We were treated to "black skies" and the best look at the Milky... More
