Very peaceful to be located in the countryside of Tucson near to Saguaro National Park. Comfortable bed and delicious (and ever changing) breakfasts every day. The owners (host) are delightful and full of helpful information, but they are never intrusive. We absolutely loved our week stay.

We stayed here for the getaway weekend. The Mica room was really clean and spacious with the fireplace. The breakfast offered was very creative and tasty. John and Steffi were very friendly and always catered to our needs. We arrived late on the first night and they left friendly notes showing us the way in and helped us feel at... More

Desert Trails is located just outside of the city of Tucson on the east side of town. As you approach on Speedway Boulevard the town seems to end abruptly after the last traffic light, about 3 or 4 miles before you get to Desert Trails. This is an ideal location for access to the east unit of Saguaro NP, and... More

We like to 'wing it' on a road trip but after 2 nights @ Motel 6 we went on line to find something nicer...Desert Trails is off the beaten path enough to be quiet but still easy access to Tucson. John and Steffi have a beautiful property, the best SouthWest breakfast ever and are charming hosts who were more than... More

My husband and I traveled to AZ and had a great stay at this B & B. John is very knowledgeable about the area and has great inside information on if the activities we chose were worth doing and making new suggestions. We enjoyed talking with John each morning and seeing the hummingbirds come up to the window. We stayed... More

Thanks for your review and we're glad you enjoyed your stay. Since your stay the guesthouse has acquired reliable WiFi throughout. Regarding our proximity to Saguaro National Park: the last time I checked, our property line was sixty-five feet from the park boundary fence and there are no houses between us and the park. The Wentworth Trail Corridor, which leads... More

I recently stayed at this B&B while in Tucson for a wedding. Since it was "off season" for Tucson, I enjoyed having the B&B all to myself. I didn't know what to expect exactly, but the setting and home were just gorgeous!! The attention to detail for the guests went above and beyond any expectations. John put out a full... More

This lovely B &B is a wonderfully charming property and the hosts were so inviting! Our very large room and very large bath were very comfortable, and our sleep was great partly because the AC system is a high-quality quiet one. The breakfasts were delicious, creative, and ample. John and Steffi were very helpful with lots of tips on restaurants... More

We live in Phoenix and just wanted to get away for the weekend, we thought about camping but decided to check out Tucson. Mica Room is fantastic, loved the fire place - set a romantic tone, and loved the private entrance to the patio. Owners are super friendly and helpful on what to do in the area, loved their doggies... More
