We spent 3 days at Cochise Stronghold at the end of May and would warmly recommend the B&B to anyone who likes nature and to be off the beaten path. Nancy and John Yates are great hosts, and the Agave Suite where we stayed is roomy and very comfortable. The breakfasts were absolutely glorious, and the wildlife is plentiful just... More

We had an absolutely wonderful experience at Cochise Stronghold Retreat. Nancy is just an exceptional host and an extremely talented chef whose made-to-order breakfasts are not to be missed! The room was clean and inviting, and the bird watching on the patio with our morning coffee or evening wine was an added bonus. We'll definitely be back again, and would... More

It is difficult to describe just how wonderful it is! The scenery, the accommodations, the bountiful breakfasts and the warm, delightful hosts. We spent 3 nights and it was way too short. Breakfast will take care of lunch and Nancy can provide dinner or you can bring supplies to cook in their well equipped facility.

We stayed two night and cooked in one night (food supplied) and brought in Mexican the other (take out in a meat market a few miles away). And... More

Out of the way, but so much to do nearby. We loved to be able to just walk out our door and start hiking. We recommend Chirrachua NM for a beautiful landscape and wonderful hiking, just about 45 minutes away from the retreat. The breakfasts were wonderful too. So much to eat we saved the leftovers for lunch!

I've spent a month at Cochise Stronghold over two separate trips in the last year. Cochise is a wonderful place to take a break from the hectic antics of daily life and get deeply centered. Nancy is a wonderful host and excellent cook. Whether solo or with a partner, this is an extraordinarily beautiful place to get away from it... More

This is a great place for people to escape the Desert Heat and feel like you are in another world, a world of mountains and animals. We saw deer, coyotes, all types of birds (big and small), humming birds, and even chickens. This place has a one bedroom and small kitchen/bath with great outdoor patios in front and back. There...

If you suffer from Motelphobia and hate the unnatural experience of the i10 then spend a few days being transported to a more relaxed, beautiful and natural world. But you need to appreciate warm hospitality, birds and butterflies, cacti, flowers, deer, stimulating walks, serenity and a feeing of timeless tranquillity. If this isn't for you please do not visit the... More

We made last minute plans to spend a few days in southern Arizona. Saw this place on the Internet and based on the previous reviews it sounded like a perfect place for us. Then driving back on the dirt road, with ruts, and crossing creeks, in the middle of nowhere we wondered what we had gotten into. When we we... More
