Hansel & Gretell cottage in Bisbee, such an amazing place. A real find. 75 steps up to door made all the ice cream & cookies calories disappear. Owners Bob & Jeff made us so welcome. Everything wonderful & welcoming.
Just walking up the steps to the hillside casita, you realize how private the casita really is compared to the homes that you pass getting up to it. Very clean. Comfortable living area. Great bathroom shower! Nice bed. My host even checked in with me via text to see how my weekend was going. Would highly recommend it to anyone who can navigate Bisbee's hills and steps.
Doublejack Guesthouse is a great place to stay. A quaint cottage for 2, on the hillside of Bisbee, with a great deck for enjoying morning coffee or evening sunsets. The owners allow you privacy, while also being available for any questions or needs. The cottage has one king bed and a fully furnished kitchen if you chose to cook. The cottage is located in Old Bisbee and within walking distance to restaurants and shops. Be prepared for lots of walking and stair climbing, no matter where you stay!
Exceeded our expectations for location, comfort and natural beauty. This was our first time staying overnight in Bisbee and I'm so glad we choose the Doublejack Guesthouse because provided the perfect romantic environment for relaxation and rejuvenation. And yes the stair climb up to the top is well worth the effort - a little adventure in itself - and an easy walk down into town for dinning and exploring.
Wish we could have stayed longer.
We enjoyed our stay tremendously. Bob is great and the home is warm and inviting. You add in Bisbee itself and you are going to have a great visit. While it snowed when we visited let me tell you the heater works great. Wonderful view of the city from the porch and so what if there are 90 odd steps to go up. We all need more exercise anyway and the reward at the top of the stairs is worth it. Looking forward to our return visit for the Bisbee Blues Festival this fall.
We stayed at the Double Jack Guest House for three nights. There were NO other words to describe the stay but CHARMING! The attention to detail in this place is like no other. You step directly into a picture-perfect magazine, and never have to leave…Not only the house but the grounds, porch and garden! Don’t let the Trip Advisor photos fools you, it is even better than pictured. The view is fantastic, and night sky is dreamy, and in the morning, are the songs of birds (my absolute favorite). This stay really is a getaway all to yourself! My husband and I rarely heard a sole during our entire weekend stay. Such a great place to distress and relax!
My husband’s only mentioned draw back was the parking…Parking is on a first come first serve basis (in addition to the 75 steps to the top of the hill) where the guest house sits. All we can say is that “If” parking was assigned and/or closer up the hill (or the stairs were just ONE flight less) this place would be an absolute dream. (The altitude while climbing THESE stairs even got to me - and I am from Show Low! I have NEVER had that happen before.)
I was also surprised to learn there was no cable TV. I must have missed that somewhere...but I can tell you I did NOT miss TV one bit. Instead I was "Forced" to relax, Oh No...There is a radio, DVDs, and WiFi - None of which I even needed as I just slowly melted into this place. Instead I spent my time reading, relaxing, sun bathing, taking photos, drawing, playing with our puppy (who loved the place) and always…bird watching.
The location of this guest house is very close to old town. Even though we ended up driving to down...because, let’s face it...those stairs were enough for us...it was an easy to drive directly down to parking in town on the same street.
And the Hosts…they are incredible! They helped guide us through town in the pitch dark of the night, they had GREAT recommendations for where to go intown, once we were settled in. They have so much information about Bisbee in the cabin to research - so you can just about any adventures that best suits you to fill your days. They made sure the kitchen was stocked just enough to take care of us weary travelers...and our mangy mutt.... They really are good people, the kind you just can’t say enough about!
This was our first visit to this area of Arizona and our stay at the Doublejack really made the week their Great!
Everything was very nice and there was some very nice extras in the fridge when we arrived.
Highly recommend spending a week in this beautiful little hideaway on the side of the hill. A few steps up to the front door, but worthwhile.
