“A great place to stay in Globe, AZ”
Reviewed October 21, 2011

THis past week my spouse and I stayed at this lovely bed and breakfast in Globe, AZ. We were in the more than spacious 1st Grade Room. A very comfortable king with a sitting area. Getting in and out of the claw foot bath for showering was easy. Rosalie, Inn keeper/owner was very accommodating. She provide a tray with coffee for us early risers. Breakfast is served in the Kindergarten/Dinning room. a very good breakfast burrito, homemade hash browns and a fruit cup was served for breakfast along with beverages. Globe is a mining town with many shops. A nice place to go for a quiet getaway.

We spent 2 nights here & thoroughly enjoyed the inn. We had high expectations for the rooms and they were even bigger than we imagined. Not a sitting area in your room - rather, a bedroom combined with a large living room. Some might not like the old fashioned claw foot tub, but then those folks would likely never select this inn anyway. The shower worked fine, so we liked how the bathroom fit the rest of the decor. Of course, the blackboard remains for you to read or write.
Spacious open area in the "lobby" with plenty of sitting room for reading or meeting other guests. Interesting antique furniture both in the rooms and throughout the building. Breakfasts were very good and there was more than enough quantity & variety. We were especially fortunate that one of the guests had actually attended this school years ago, so we had fun asking questions about what it was like.
High marks for service! Rosalie would not take "no" when I was unloading our bags and helped carry things to our room. When she learned we like a 5 O'clock cocktail, an antique tray was laid out for us with glasses, stirrers, napkins, etc. Rosalie also tolerates chatting in the kitchen, even if you are getting in her way.

Room Tip: From what I saw, they are all good. Just request first floor if you have difficulty with stairs as...

This is an old schoolhouse turned B&B. The owners have kept the guest rooms the same size as the original classroom so the rooms are huge! We enjoyed it as a couple, but there is lots of common areas and room inside the rooms so it's also a great place to have a group of people come stay together. The breakfast was homemade and very delicious. It has an evaporative cooler (vs. air conditioning) which is very common in the desert and even though it was close to 100 degrees, the room was very comfortable (albeit a bit loud sometimes with the fan running). There were games stacked on a table in the common area and our room had not only the king bed, but a twin bed in the corner so great for families. Overall, this place has great ambiance, is very charming and worth a stay to see the place.

Room Tip: If you go in the summer, ask for a downstairs room.

An absolutely novel and charming experience with impeccable, genuine hospitality. I have traveled widely across the US, Europe, and Asia and have yet to experience such a unique B & B- a virtual museum of small-town mid-century public school life. My visit included a world-class breakfast cooked to order with fresh herbs. Just don't try to use a GPS to find it- it will lead you on a wild goose chase. Follow the website's instructions and you'll be fine.

My first time to the globe miami area....small town - but the bed and breakfast was huge! It is an old school house filled with a lot of stuff from the 1950-60's...my room was an actual school room...seems like it was 40 feet by 50 feet...huge! Very comfortable stay and breakfast was really good! Rosalie is a sweetheart...and loves to talk! LOL! Hope to be there again...

We stayed at the Noftsger Hill Inn in mid February for two nights, in Bedroom (or shall I say classroom) #3. The weather was chilly and rainy. Imagine our delight when were enthusiastically greeted by the innkeeper who informed us that she had turned on the fireplace heater to warm the room up for us prior to our arrival.
The room is very large (literally a classroom) with two queen beds and a twin bed, in addition to chairs, desks, a sofa, a dresser and an armoire. There is a very small television in the room. We don't watch much television, so I can't say much about reception, channels, etc.

The room does have a wireless connection, although I found the upload speed to be slow, but it was free and I was able to access the internet without any difficulties.
The breakfast was fabulous both days. The innkeeper was alerted ahead of time about a food allergy, and she went out of her way to prepare all of the items allergy free for me.

There is coffee and tea available in the breakfast room anytime you would like.
The innkeeper also showed us a small refrigerator and told us that we could use it for personal cold items, and that we were welcome to help ourselves to cold drinks and water from the fridge. She had wineglasses available, along with a corkscrew, if we wanted to bring back a bottle of wine to enjoy in the evening in our room.

The wooden floors are quite noisy. There is no way to walk across the room without them squeaking. I tried every which way to find a path that made no noise, but had no luck. Also, with the cold damp weather, the room and the hallway were drafty and a bit cold. But that type of weather doesn't happen all that often. I noticed that there is an air conditioner in the window for hot weather.

There is a clawfoot tub in the bathroom which is also a shower. I had a bit of difficulty getting out of the tub after showering, so if you are not steady on your feet, you might take that into account.

When researching the hotel for its history, we found information that suggested that the hotel was haunted. And our room was listed as one that had high paranormal activity. I can tell you that we did not have any experiences that suggested that we were sharing the room with ghosts. I was up and about several times the one night before I knew about the supposed haunted activity, and never noticed anything unusual. The second night, I was a bit concerned having read some posts regarding the room, but absolutely nothing out of the ordinary happened that night either.

This place would be great for a family since there are so many beds in the room. The front hall has a piano, games, puzzles, and books to keep you busy at night. (There isn't much to do in Globe after the sun sets.) And with the outstanding breakfast choices, you certainly will not leave hungry.

Just spent the weekend in Globe Arizona at the Nofsker Hill Inn Bed and Breakfast - wonderful experience. An old grade school built in the every early 1900's, huge rooms that used to be classrooms, antiques everywhere and great food! Great ambiance, haunted history, unique. Rosalie was the utmost hostess and I loved her and her inn. If you go to Globe, you must stay here! Susan, November 1, 2010
