Beautiful quiet spot not far from Florence. Comfortable suites individually decorated and a pleasant courtyard. Very nice continental style breakfast included. Will stay again at the next opportunity!

A short drive south of Florence immerses you in very tasteful Southwest decor- inside and out. Several tables in the courtyard allow a place for relaxing or breakfast. Breakfast includes delicious sweet and hard rolls, yogurt, fruit, cereal and hard boiled eggs. We would definitely stay here again.

We attended a wedding at the Windmill Winery. I kept putting off making reservations and by the time that I did, the Holiday Inn where everyone else was staying was booked.

Located about five miles outside of Florence, Az, there is a remarkable desert retreat. This beautiful little Inn was built in the 1930's and has been lovingly maintained. The surroundings are beautiful; cactus, palo verde trees, a fountain, a tile patio, and flowers all accentuate its charming nature. It is quiet and serene, a wonderful escape from the bustle of...

a short drive south of Florence will bring you to this beautiful property. There are 6 rooms surrounding a walled courtyard or three private casitas available. We have stayed in both the Dolores room on the courtyard and the Ilsa (1 bedroom) and Abby (2 bedroom) casitas. The rooms come with an extended continental breakfast and the casitas all have...

We were looking for a place in the desert to view the night sky. This was such a wonderful find! It's quiet, quaint and away from everything! The inn itself is old but everything is wonderfully updated in a way that kept it's rustic charm. Rooms are smallish but immaculate and without the musty smell of some older establishments. Yes,...

Was in Florence last weekend for a wedding. We had a wonderful, relaxing stay. The grounds were beautiful, surrounded by cactus and other native vegetation. Room was clean and well-appointed. We are so very glad to have spent the weekend at such a cool place with great ambiance. Thanks Linda...you are a fantastic inn keeper!

We stayed at the Inn for 4 days for our daughter's wedding. We found the property to be immaculate and so charming and quaint. Our family members stayed in two of the other casitas, and they were also beautifully decorated and very comfortable! Like home away from home!
