It sits in a beautiful secluded area close to Patagonia Arizona and within easy reach of some of the nation's top birding destinations in southern Arizona.

There are even a growing group of wineries with some quality products. This a truly a destination for anyone who wants peace and quiet and the ability to see nature in its many forms. It is an ideal base of operations for a leisurely visit to Southern Arizona.

This BNB is set back in the canyon; secluded and peaceful setting. The house is vintage ranch house and is tastefully decorated. The hosts are extremely gracious and are happy to share stories about some of the local history and also bird watching. The breakfasts are always unique and delicious. The only issue I had was with the low water pressure that made it hard to get a relaxing hot shower in the room we stayed at. It wouldn't deter me from going back because it's always a great experience staying there.

My husband, dog and I came down from Phoenix to stay in the Homestead House for the week of Christmas. This was our first time in Patagonia, and we were absolutely taken with the area! The Homestead House was very comfortable for our needs. I cooked several meals in the little kitchenette, no problems. We were very comfortable in the king-sized bed. It was quite a change for us to have no access to Internet, email or television (in the Homestead House, but all are available in the main house), but... What a relaxing treat! We actually READ BOOKS and had amazing fun drinking wine, playing cards and other board games at night (a huge selection of old-fashioned games are in the main house). During the day we took a few exciting road trips (especially on a couple of the back roads!) and were enamored with everything Patagonia! The birds, the sky, the scenery, the weather, the town, the people... we loved it all! There is a wonderful organic store in town with an incredible selection of produce and meats... quite a surprise for such a small town. Indeed, we ate like royalty during this trip, in no small part due to the incredible breakfasts prepared by Tom every morning! We also enjoyed Tom's unbelievably delicious Christmas dinner on Christmas Day... what a treat! True 5-star resort quality meals, every one of them! We would definitely come back and stay with Tom and Mary Jane again. They are great people and we wish them the best.

We got away from it all to a place near heaven at The Spirit Tree. Mary Jane greeted us warmly when we arrived, and Tom prepared an incredible gourmet breakfast both days we were there. The outside grounds are truly spectacular, with the spirit tree the center of an incredible place. We loved sitting by the outside fireplace, taking in the solitude, save the gentle sounds of birds whispering close by us.

Great location, very private, hosts were very friendly, breakfast was tasty and unique. Cell phone service not very good. Next time we would probably request to be in the main house. Cute patio there.

This place was adorable!!! :) My boyfriend, myself and our dog went for a long weekend of hiking, off-roading and wine tasting. I couldn't imagine a more perfect place to stay. It's out of town a bit, which means it was quiet... yay!!! Their dog and my dog went for walks together every morning. Star gazing was incredible. Mary Jane and Tom are very knowledgeable about the area and offered us maps, directions, tips and tricks - you name it! And Tom's breakfasts were AMAZIIIIIING! Not your average B&B type of thing - definitely more gourmet. Can't wait to go back.

I spent a very relaxing and enjoyable 3 nights at Spirit Tree. Having coffee when I wanted and breakfast too was absolutely perfect.

I stayed in the cute and comfortable casita for a few days while traveling alone in the area. I felt extremely relaxed and safe, and so enjoyed visiting with the dogs, horses and donkey. Mary Jane and Tom were great hosts, and I liked knowing that someone knew me and would miss me if I disappeared into the fantastic surrounding wilderness! They both know the area really well and were able to advise me on nearby hiking trails and places of interest. The setting is beautiful and peaceful and I loved the little town of Patagonia a few minutes away. I would definitely stay again if in the area, and I wish I could stay a couple of months next winter!

From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, we experienced warm hospitality from Mary Jane and Tom. The property is rustic and comfortable. We stayed in the smaller casita, which is comfortable for two. Tom will cook breakfast when you're ready and you'll get light and healthy plate served hot at the dining room table. The property is 1920's vintage, so don't expect modern decor, it's rustic. Not everything is perfect like a Holiday Inn, but it's clean and well maintained. We recommend this if you're looking for an out-of-the-way and relaxing location to unwind for the weekend.

Very nice hosts. The place could use some TLC. If you are going to rent out a room, everything should be in working order. Room was nice but the tub was not functional, and it appeared that they were trying to decide on a new room color because of the various paint spots on the wall. The courtyard would be a very nice gathering place, but needs some sprucing up. Would I recommend it; that's debatable. A place this size would be overwhelming for two people to tackle. It needs an overhaul and could be very inviting.

Amazing homestead feel surrounded by mountains and tucked in a rare find of wine country in southern AZ! Great hosts who accommodated for my food sensitivities with 2 day notice!
