When in Arizona would highly recommend taking a ride out to Globe, not only is it a beautiful scenic drive but make sure to reserve a night or two stay at this beautiful bed & breakfast. Hosts Rosalie & Dom have transformed an old elementary school into a charming inn while preserving many of the schools original footprint. Our bedroom was a previously a very large classroom and the bathroom was originally the children’s coat room. The large chalkboard remains and the room was furnished elegantly from a past era. While the original wood floors creak which add charm, the airy room and decorative grounds are very quiet and relaxing. One can explore the rooms, the decor, and especially the architecture which brought back memories of our own schools. After a delicious breakfast prepared with fresh grown herbs, we were saddened we could not stay another night.

If you enjoy adventure this will be the place for you. We went to Globe specifically to stay in this B&B which was created from an old schoolhouse. It's like the fantasy of being locked in a museum overnight. There is so much here that you can't really take it all in. Our room, #8, across from the principal's office was the biggest room we've ever stayed in. We didn't even notice at first that on one end was a king sized bed and on the other end another large bed. The original blackboard is there, tons of furniture, large schoolroom windows, high ceilings. You get the idea. There are heaters since the building is not centrally heated and they work well. Our bathroom was the old coatroom, complete with hooks and a claw tub (no safety bars--be aware). The schoolhouse is on a hill so there's a nice view. The breakfast served up by the owner Rosalie , was fabulous--a fruit cup with yogurt and granola, an omelet with sweet potatoes and spinach, bacon and pumpkin bread. Can't be beat. She even accomodated our needs by moving her timing up a half hour. But this is a B&B, not a chain with a 24 hour desk.

We had only one problem which was not caused by the B&B. Somewhere in the neighborhood a dog barked continuously from 3am to 5am. Other than that it was all wonderful. Also, if you need accessibility, be aware there are obviously no elevators, so ask for a room on the first floor. The town of Globe does have a movie theater, and an ice cream parlor etc, but is very quiet and not much going on. There is a wonderful archeological park nearby called Besh Ba Gowah. The next town over, Miami, has some restaurants as well. Joe's Barbecue was pretty good.

Room tip: For accessibility stay on the first floor

This B&B is a real treasure. We stayed here for a girls getaway and could not have enjoyed ourselves more. Rosalie was the perfect host. She greeted our party at the door, and gave us a small tour of the school.
Our room was a beautiful converted classroom, and we had fun making art on the chalkboard. The food was great, and the atmosphere appropriately spooky.
A great place to stay in a cute little town
We are already planning our next trip back.

Room tip: A unique experience

My husband and I recently traveled to Globe, Arizona to spend a night at the Noftsger Hill Inn for a unique experience and we were not disappointed. The old Globe schoolhouse that overlooks historic old town Globe has been transformed into a beautiful bed and breakfast filled with antiques and memorabilia of a bygone era including a Big Chief tablet. Classroom 2, our room, was located on the main floor. It was very spacious and quite charming. It included a very comfortable king size bed, a single bed, a couch, several chairs, two large ceiling fans and a very effective cooling system. When we arrived we were greeted by our gracious host, Rosalie. She made us feel very welcome in her home. The next morning we were served a delicious breakfast in the lovely dining room. Loved the creaking of the old wooden floors, the tall ceilings, large windows, the chalkboards, the old-fashioned school desks and the many class pictures of the past. Don't miss this historic gem!
By the way when you visit Globe, don't miss visiting the Besh Ba Gowah Archaelogical Park and Museum, the Pickle Barrel Trading Post, the Old Globe Courthouse and Jail, the Drift Saloon and Simply Sarah. All the people we met at these venues were exceptionally friendly.

You are already in school. We stayed one night as a midway point headed to Albuquerque but had I known, it would have been longer. When you arrive Rosalie gives you a warm welcome and will tell you all you wish to know about the former school, its' history and the area. She will also give you recommendations on where to eat and what to do/see in the area. The rooms, which are former classrooms are huge and still retain their original blackboards. We stayed in a first floor room furnished with two large beds, one twin bed, sofa, chairs, tables, etc. along with all sorts of decorative items that you want to take a long time to explore. The public areas are furnished the same way and we spend some time trying to look at everything. Breakfast was delightful - Rosalie makes a 'mean frittata'! Tea, coffee water and soft drinks are all available (for free) in the dining area. I will certainly recommend Noftsger Hill and hopefully will stay there again.
