We reserved the Deco suite for 3 nights and had a wonderful stay! The room was tastefully decorated and very private with amazing air conditioning which was a welcome reprieve in the warmer weather. The breakfasts were above expectation and Lea even managed to meet my vegan needs. Very thoughtful! The house is well cared and in a perfect location... More

A friend and myself traveled from Australia to stay in this Inn for one week. I had a good nights sleep every night and enjoyed the breakfasts. The owner was friendly and I can't think of any complaints. Would recommend this place to others.

My wife and I stopped over for one night and loved every minute of it. The owner was a lovely lady that made us very welcome. Our room was very cosy, had a unique charm about it, and was really nicely decorated....nothing like I had stayed in before. The house was only a couple of blocks away from the restaurant/bar...

Lea and Ken are doing a great job keeping this landmark afloat. With the help of Laszlo the cat! We spent two night here while on a long weekend in the area and enjoyed the ambience and the history. The morning we left a water main in the cellar broke so we went without showers but got a reduced rate... More

This was our first time at the Big Blue House. We stayed upstairs, in the two room suite with two of our teenage daughters. The rooms were of ample size, comfortable and very clean. The bathroom is small, but that is part of staying in a historic home. The suite was private and quiet. The house itself is a Tucson... More

We stayed here two nights. After considering restaurant suggestions as well as an option to get sandwiches at the Time Market, we decided to do the latter as the old-fashioned front porch was so inviting. The fall evenings were the perfect temperature to relax with a bottle of wine and watch bicyclists and walkers go by. After a good night's... More
