Visiting Arizona from Toronto - booked at the Down by the River to "get close to nature" - great experience.No car - so walked in a few miles from St. David -no problem and very scenic being surrounded by 4 mountain ranges.Welcomed warmly by hosts Mike and Angie and spent 4 days of great breakfasts and conversation, easy walks to the river,watched humming birds feeding just feet away on the porch.The highlight for me was evening and early morning sessions with my small telescope - the night skies were great - the stars were like jewels placed in the sky.Definitely recommend.
