Another stay with Lea and Ken, I walked up and Lea just handed me my room key. The Cottage is always comfortable and clean. For work or for pleasure, the big Blue House is my Choice of B&B's. I've got several more reservations with them and always look forward to the time there. Perfect Neighborhood, Quite and Friendly. I'll keep... More

Lea met us when we arrived after our drive from the Valley on a Friday night, and just gave us the keys and said we'll take care of the paperwork in th morning. We stayed in Room 2 - very nice. The wrap-around porch is awesome. Ken shared the history of the house with us as we had our coffee... More

I stayed in the Blue Room upstairs and was very happy with my visit. Lea and Ken are charming without being intrusive. If you have business in the UA area or just love historic buildings, The Big Blue is for you!

For personal service, kind advice, with a unique setting, in a convienent location look no further. The owners, Ken and Lea are genuine and helpful. I kept my car parked right in front of The House and barely needed to use it at all. 4th Street and the Pie Allen Historical District is just down the street around the corner.... More

My wife and I stayed in the cottage and were delighted with it. Clean and well decorated, comfortable bed, great kitchen and perfect hosts who stocked it with cereal, milk, yogurt, juice, coffee and muffins (yum). We stayed here as a base for touring around Southern AZ and had a great time.

Leah and her husband were friendly, extremely accomodating and went out of their way to make us comfortable. Our room was large and the stocked kitchen was a great plus. We enjoyed our stay very much. Ann Rosser

My husband & I just came back from a great trip to Tucson. We stayed at the big blue house for 3 nights and had a great experience. The price was very reasonable about $80 cheaper than staying at the Marriott or Hyatt plus we had a kitchen stocked with all sorts of breakfast options. It was a nice &... More

This is the best Bed and Breakfast I've ever stayed in! The room was great, I loved that you could have breakfast in your room at your leisure, and I didn't even relize when I booked that it was in walking distance to Forth Ave - my favorite area of Tucson. Tons of geat restaurants two blocks away. Room three... More
