While planning a relaxing weekend in the Nogales area recently, we stumbled on Frida's Bed & Breakfast. We were looking for someplace relatively close to the border and to the Sonoita area wine country - and this fit the bill perfectly. Frida's is located on Morley Avenue, in a residential section of Nogales' original business district, about a mile or so from the international line. The house is a classic, well appointed 1920's era bungalow in very nice condition with well kept grounds. We stayed in the upstairs room of what had originally been the carport. The room was well furnished with its own bathroom and kitchen and very private. One of our all-time favorite restaurants, La Roca, is just across the border, straight down Morley - an easy 20 minute walk - which is good for the return hike after a full meal & a few margies. Even though the house fronts Morley, the railroad tracks and Grand Avenue, it still seemed relatively calm and quiet - the only trains we saw or heard were during the day, and then only one or two. Sitting on the front porch, having coffee in the morning or an adult beverage in the evening was more than pleasant. A ballpark just around the corner affords the ability to catch some baseball as well, if so inclined. There's a lot of history in the border region of Nogales and wandering around, catching the sights is easy to do from Frida's. Addtionally, Sonoita is only 30 miles or so away, and one of the most beautiful drives in Southern Arizona - the wine ain't bad either!
All in all, we would definitely recommend Frida's. It's a nice place, reasonably priced and well located. We will be going back.
