Barbara and I were fully satisfied with the two nights at Spirit In. Tom served us a special dinner in celebration of our 52nd anniversary that we will long remember. We would recommend it to anyone as a great value. Tom also is a history "buff" and we had conversations about many things and he went out of his way to be sure our experience was everything we expected. It exceeded it.

Spirit Tree Inn is not your typical chair hotel. It has much more character than that. When they say it is a former OLD ranch house that is exactly it. It is old, and therefore has some rather funky corners. We loved it but it took a little while to appreciate it all. The hosts and other guests were extremely friendly, the patio provided the best birding we found, the room was clean, and the grounds beautiful. Breakfast was gormet but a bit sparse. We plan to return for a different season to see what other species of birds show themselves.

We visited this area to do birding. Situated outside of Patagonia on a small ranch, the setting was lovely; being originally from Amish country the story of the barn was all the more interesting; the pair of Elf Owl's was a plus we didn't expect; and Tom was the perfect host - informative; a good conversationalist and attentive to our needs.

We especially enjoyed sitting outside and watching the birds come and go through the day. The dinner Tom prated for us one night was delicious, as was the wine.

This away from traffic noise is a wonderful location for birders to SE Arizona. Many wonderful birds are found in the vegetation, and at the feeders around the patio. Birders and naturalists may be dismayed to see two cats roaming free around the property. There is also a dog, but it is a quiet one. The best thing about this B&B is the warm welcome given by Mary Jane, and the way that guests are made to feel at home. I appreciated the tea selection in the evening, and the wonderful hot breakfast prepared by Tom in the morning. I definitely hope for many return trips.

Rustic, homey. . .like visiting your friends on their farm / ranch with little uniqueness all around. Definitely going back - rest, relaxation, delicious breakfast and great company!

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.
