My husband and I needed a quiet retreat in a part of Arizona we already loved for its rolling hills and hidden wetlands. We found it here. There are lots of personal touches to the house, a fantastic breakfast, and magical surroundings. I definitely recommend Spirit Tree Inn.

I stayed at the Spirit Tree the weekend of Oct 12th and was pleasantly surprised. It's a very quaint B&B in a quiet, remote but very accessible area near Patagonia.Tom greeted us upon arrival and during our stay continued to entertain and educate us about antiques, history,cooking, just about anything! Mary Beth is an incredibly gracious hostess and made us feel welcome and very much at home. We enjoyed sitting in the courtyard and relaxing at the end of the day with a glass of wine from one of the local wineries. I plan on returning soon.

This hacienda has history! The room was too warm the first night. Ask the host to turn the thermostat down. Remote and quiet, except for the Border Patrol trucks at night. My husband didn't hear them at all--I only heard them because I got up at night.....The adobe walls block noise. Great food, and knowledgeable hosts.

The Oriental room, wasn't quite ready as Tom explained he had been repairing frozen water pipes all day. So, we went back to the Arizona Trailhead we had passed a half mile down the road. We returned to the house just before 5 pm and we asked if we could walk the property. He said sure, he was just going to clean the morning dishes and by the way, the other guests who were supposed to be staying another night would not be returning, so we would have the whole place to ourselves! We had already read a review that said the place wouldn't be fancy, but shed after shed seemed to be piled high with stuff and it became clear maintenance and cleanliness were lacking. Back inside, the kitchen counters were cluttered. There was a quart of half and half left out as well as a bag of oranges with an open tube of white caulk in it. In the refrigerator were rotting cucumbers. The water in the water cooler next to the dining area tasted terrible. At night, the heat was blasting in the room. It could be that concentration of heat made the ants start coming out of the bathroom wall near the register. Before I noticed them, the ants started crawling up my legs biting me as I stood using the toilet at 5:30 am. Tom came in at 6 or so and we told him we would be leaving earlier than planned. He walked us out to the car with a flash light and just kept talking until we finished packing the trunk and got in. The Town, Arizona Trail, dark sky full of shooting stars, and the ranch setting are cool, but unfortunately, we didn't have the greatest overnight here.
