The Aravaipa Farms website must be updated to let the visitor know that it is on the market for sale and that it is now more neglected than what is advertised. If Carol does not cook your meals (and it appears that she may no longer cook), the website advertises that you can cook your own meals in your casita.... More

When we booked our weekend and learned that Carol Steele was the proprietor we knew the food would be great. We had been longtime fans of Carol from her Bistro in Central Phoenix several years ago. What we weren't prepared for was the wonderful ambiance of Aravaipa Farms. From the opening view of the farm as we approached the creek... More

My grandmother was born in Aravaipa Canyon in 1904. This made the adventure even more special. Carol was a wonderful hostess who made sure we experienced a nice mix of solitude and good company . Dinner was delicious and the company stimulating. We are former bed and breakfast owners who truly appreciate the details provided by this experienced innkeeper and... More

Spent Friday and Saturday and hiked Aravaipa Canyon Sunday. A delight to the eyes at every turn, I was constantly surprised at the care and attention to detail. Food was delicious, with dinner instead of breakfast as the main meal. Rooms were stocked with breakfast treats - fresh fruit, banana bread, yogurt, juice, jams and lunch came in a huge... More

We absolutely loved our stay at Aravaipa Farms! My girlfriend took me there as a "thank you" for doing her a big favor. I had no idea what to expect and was pleasantly surprised. The casitas were rustic, but in the best way. They were spacious and filled with delightful furniture and art. And, the fridge was packed with delicious... More

The lunch on arrival was unbelievable. Included sanwiches, fruit, brie and chedder cheeses, cookies, veggies, cookies and cracker snacks. Breakfast was equally as generous with granola, fruit, yogurts, juices, etc. Plus freshly made banana bread. Dinner...well wonderful... salmon and veggies and dessert made from freshly picked apricots. Carole is a very interesting and engaging host, sharing her experiences in the... More

My husband and I first visited Carol's wonderful retreat in the winter of 2003. Since that time we have had the pleasure of returning in summer, spring, and fall. Each visit was terrific w/ great, interesting food and lively conversation w/ diverse groups of people at dinner. In Aravaipa Farms Carol has created a one-of-a-kind treasure w/ playful and serene...

This B&B is in the middle of nowhere--wonderful as an escape. No cell coverage! For us that means truly getting away. Carol has converted old farm buildings into funky cozy casitas, with ecclectic furnishings, artwork, and wood burning fireplaces. The atmosphere just invites you to relax, sit with your book, or just having a chance to catch up with your... More

The place was not clean; dead bugs dangling from cobwebs. They leave breakfast in your refrig and we found yogurt that was over 2 weeks old as well as a prior visitor's stuff that was moldy. Obviously they do not need to meet codes, as it looked to be hazardous with all the electrical cords etc. The owner also likes... More

We truly regret this guest had these sentiments about our facility. For 15 years we have enjoyed a good reputation with many many return guests. Are casitas are clean. For each guest we provide a European Continental Breakfast in their casita. The refrigerators are stocked fresh for each guest with fresh fruit, an assorted cheese tray, grapes, raspberry granola, our... More

We heard about Aravaipa Farms (pronounced "air-a-vie-pa" from an article in the newspaper. It was raving about this small B&B in Winkelman (south east part of Arizona). I thought "how could we have missed this so called treasure in our own backyard?" Well we decided to visit and just returned from a 3 nite stay (June 26-28). This place is... More
