“Novel. Quite a Building”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2003

It would take a small fortune to restore this building to its past glory. We love old buildings like this. It's a splendid example of a period building, but it's never been attended to by a construction professional. The building and its history make for a fascinating experience. The owner definitely plays up the ghost stories if you like that sort of thing. This sets the scene for a scary night. It's always been a boarding house, since way back. The rooms are basically what you would expect for an old boarding house. It's clean. The furnishings are not antique but they are garage sale antiques. It's apparently been fixed up by its various sundry owners, giving it an overall feeling of needing help. Skip the breakfast.

The Oliver House is nestled right in the middle of Bisbee Arizona. It is a beautiful stately house, that has all the essence of the old mining days. Packed with history, memories and ....Ghosts!

I too was a non believer until I stayed at The Oliver House in room 13, I should have known when we had to cross a mote to enter the house that we were instore for a ghostly good time. Mr Shrantz is the owner and groundskeeper there, he has worked very hard to restore the Inn to its original
beginings and has done an excellent job. Mr Shrantz is a mammoth of knowledge when it comes to Bisbee history , he is never to busy to take the time and "sit a spell" and share a story with you.
There is an eerie but peaceful feeling about the Oliver House that just keeps you wanting to go back, spooky ghosts and all. Don't miss it it is a wonderfully frightful place to stay!
