We found this B&B by chance and were blessed by an incredible experience that may be one of the highlights of our tour of the region. The Inn is in an converted schoolhouse and all the rooms are appropriately themed with memorabilia from the 40s and 50s. The grounds include an outdoor sitting area shaded by a large live oak.
No "continental" breakfast here - tasty works of art better describe our meals. Quiche, fruit, muffin, and a honey coated scone were served to us on our first morning. I explained to John (innkeeper) that I was watching my sugar intake as reason for not eating the scone. The next morning, I noticed sugarless syrup, along with regular maple syrup on our table (to accompany the French toast artfully decorated with thin slices of banana and walnuts). This is an example of the service - incomparable. John was very accommodating and sensitive to the guests needs.
John was very helpful with local information, providing us with maps, best places to buy gas, and best routes to various attractions.
Although convenient to downtown Bisbee, this may not be the place for folks who want to be in the heart of the action, but more suited for the traveler seeking respite from the drone of the highway. Although our activities kept us away for most of the days, I could see the Schoolhouse Inn as an ideal place to spend time readin a book, writing a book, or just chilling out.
