5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2009

We spent two days at this quiet, clean B&B nestled in the Dragoon Mountains in an area called, "Cochise Stronghold". We found the accommodations, location and service to be wonderful. We stayed in the Agave Suite, where we were able to view a variety of birds at the feeder outside the sliding glass doors, and were able to watch the Coues deer come to drink water. The walking and hiking opportunities are numerous.
We appreciated Nancy's tasty, hearty breakfasts, and her tour of the grounds. She and John have created environmentally friendly lodging, with strawbale buildings, yurts, an outdoor solar shower, a rainwater collection system and a solar oven.
We have camped in the Dragoons many times, but now that we're older and less able, it was great to have such a comfortable and beautiful place to continue to enjoy these mountains.

We parked the car and did not touch it for two days. Rode my my bike, hiked the canyon, sat in a hot tub in the trees, watched numerous birds & Coos Deer on the patio, read 2 books, slept like a baby, and than some really nice people showed up with an excellent breakfast. On top of that we stayed in a unique and special hay bale house that has some electronic gear in a closet but why waste your time in such a place. Take your own food and drink because their ain't no place to get such stuff. No people, no stuff, life can't get any better. Dan & Marion, Parker, Arizona

This was our second stop on a long vacation in Arizona and we could have stayed here a lot longer than 2 days! Quiet, beautiful, restful and lots of entertaining wildlife.

We chose to stay in a rustic tepee they offer (no power, or water-and it didn't matter) it was only a short walk to a spotless bathroom and a beautiful outdoor hot tub. We soaked under a starry sky surrounded by incredible rock formations.

Lots of firewood, a box of camping gear, chairs and comfy beds were all provided but it was the breakfasts I'll never forget. The owners are wonderful and the area is one of the most scenic we visited.
Do not miss the nearby Amerind Museum.

We cannot wait to go back.

Absolutely perfect for those looking to stay at a place well off the beaten path while enjoying stunning scenery in the heart of the Dragoon mountains. It's about as close to nature as one can get while still enjoying all the amenities of a great Bed & Breakfast. I stayed here based on the advice of a Frommers.com review that said this was one of the top ten B&B's in Arizona, and they were right on. The breakfasts were excellent, the beds were very comfortable, I could go on and on but trust me when I say everything was perfect. I highly recommend this place.
