“Oasis in Bizbee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2011

We spent two nights in the executive suite, with a wonderful balcony overlooking a huge new fish pond. So relaxing! We loved this home, it is beautifully furnished and the breakfast prepared by Jill was outstanding. The suite is very quiet and private and has all the comforts of home! If you are staying in Bizbee, make sure you give this bed and breakfast a try, it's great.

I feel so fortunate to have the privilege to stay at Joy's wonderful guest house. That is really what it feels like--a most welcome guest in her home. This was my 3rd visit in less than a year. I come here for rejuvenation,coddling,conversation,and many other benefits. The cooked to order, multiple choices breakfasts are too much to describe. Homemade breads,jams & jellies, crepes etc. Electric blankets for comfy nites. Spotlessly clean. Joy is more than an encyclopedia of local knowledge. The house itself has to be seen to be believed. The rooms are just that--forget TVs,alarm clocks and bedside phones. It is a place to enjoy for itself alone.

This review is way over due! We spent September 29, 2010 at the Calumet House and we were met by Janet, the innkeeper (the owners were out of town). Janet was very accommodating. She gave us a very extensive tour and history of the house. We stayed in the Gold Room. The grounds were very nice with a nice outside water fall and patio area. Breakfast was excellent--cooked to order by Janet. We would definitely return if in the area. The only thing that we thought it was lacking was a nice outdoor hot tub. Everything else was exquisite.

Joy Timbers the owner and consumate hostess took us in for our honey moon when a different hotel we had booked for our wedding party cancelled on us at the last minute. We had the Gold room and the Garden Spa room. They were exquisite. We had hoped to stay in old Bisbee but all the wonderfulness of the entire experience made old Bisbee unimportant. This property is so incredibly beautiful inside and out. The price includes breakfast of a menu that is unbelievable! And the dining room where you share an enormous oval antique table that is extravagantly decorated, and encourages conversation and new friendships with other guests. They are also pet friendly and even more importantly, they are well aware of the laws regarding service animals and couldn't be more accomodating.

We had a wonderful time staying at the Calument. Joy, the owner, took us on a tour of the Bed & Breakfast and explained about all the rooms. We were in Bisbee for the Blues Festival and wanted someplace close. The Calument was just walking distance away. The Calument, the people who work there, and the food are great. Nice atmosphere, quiet, close to everything, and good smelling food! We had such a good time, we plan on coming back to both next year. We really enjoyed our stay there.

If you're looking for an elegant and comfortable place to stay during your next trip to Bisbee, head out beyond the downtown district to the section called Warren and stay at Calumet and Arizona Guest House.

Although Calumet B&B is not located in the center of Bisbee's historic district, for us it was ideally located in a relaxing neighborhood nearby. We had our standard poodle (named Bisbee!) with us, and hostess Joy made us all feel welcome. After touring and shopping in Bisbee, we were able to return to the quality atmosphere of the Calumet, to spend time in our suite or walk our dog along tree-lined streets, to a neighboring park and even a ball field.

The Calumet is a lovely place, with historic details and spotlessly clean rooms. We stayed in the Executive Suite, which was a large and modernly equipped suite adjacent to the main building. We were able to sit outside our room in a cool and cozy patio as we wished. Inside the suite was comfortably equipped with TV microwave, fridge, coffeemaker and walk-in shower. The king bed was a pleasure, and sitting areas around the suite made it all the more relaxing.

Hostess Joy did so much to make our visit a good one. Her breakfast, held in the Calumet's impressively set dining room, was delicious -- from the great coffee, to homemade jellies and hearty homemade french toast. Farm fresh eggs and delicious muffins rounded out such a tasty experience.

Before we left the Calumet, we sat outside with Joy in her beautiful garden, chatting about Bisbee, its character and history. What a great weekend -- We will return to the Calumet and to Joy's hospitality.

I called for information and liked what I heard so I then arranged for an after-hours check-in which went without a hitch. I loved the design and accoutrements and found my room very clean, charming and comfortable. I took a peek at the unoccupied rooms and everywhere was wonderful period decor. The shared bath has a wonderful deep claw-foot tub. However it brought the only downside as my neighbors seemed to have no concept of how to courteously share a bathroom as they left their wet towels on the tub and the shower curtain bar and their toiletries strewn about leaving no place for mine. I haven't stayed at a B & B before, so I'm not sure how often that happens. Downstairs included a magnificently set formal dining room and a large salon. I spent some time in the library nook leafing through a smattering of genres including local birding, regional histories and novels from nearby authors and the baby grand in the corner on which I delighted in plunking while my fellow travelers played bridge. A quiet night was followed by a very delicious breakfast of choice which in my case was homemade quiche, bread and jam and fresh squeezed juice and fruit salad. I needed a quick checkout and was politely obliged. Given my late arrival and early departure I didn't have time to enjoy the attractive and appealing Arizona room or outdoor gardens which both offered sunny seating. Overall it was a great experience and I would definitely return on a future stay.
