    Additional Location Information
    High in the eastern foothills of Tucson, the Desert Moon Retreat is located between Catalina Highway and Soldier Trail Road. This is a popular area for bicycle enthusiasts, hikers, or for those merely wanting to lounge around the pool and enjoy the majestic views, desert flora and fauna. With a wash running through the property, guest love to explore the 3.5 acres and get up close and personal with the many saguaros on the site. Tanque Verde Falls is not far away and a perfect place to hike with a picnic lunch. Mount Lemmon is a breathtaking destination up the mountain and a must do for all guests. Driving up through the various biomes of this sky island is like driving from Tucson to Canada and not nearly as far!
