Wine tasting get-a-way

3.8 on March 26, 2015

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!


Birder's Delight

5 on March 22, 2015

The purpose of our stay was to do some bird watching in the area. This B&B is the perfect setting for the visiting birder as the owners are very knowledgeable about birds and have an extensive feeder setup on the patio. This is in a secluded area, but the town of Patagonia is a short distance away. We will likely be back.


Pleasant stay at the Spirit Tree Inn

4.0 on March 07, 2015

This February my wife and I enjoyed a very pleasant three-day stay at the wonderful Spirit Tree Inn in Patagonia, Arizona. We especially enjoyed owners Mary Jane and Tom's warm hospitality, as well as Tom's scrumptious breakfasts. Being birders, we eagerly observed in the avian multitudes that gathered around the feeders in the lovely patio each morning, before we headed out to such famous nearby locations as Patagonia Lake, Patagonia-Sonoita Creek Preserve, Paton's Hummingbird Sanctuary or any of the canyons of the surrounding sky islands. We would highly recommend a stay at the Spirit Tree Inn at any time of the year - perhaps spring time would be your best bet to improve on the 41 species long garden bird list we compiled during our stay.


Much to enjoy, rural Arizona setting, caring hosts

4.2 on February 28, 2015

Wonderful setting and interesting, caring and down to earth hosts. Creative food and environmentally aware services.The town of Patagonia is interesting,earthy and artsy with organic food and arts coops and shops contrasting nicely with the Wagon Wheels more down home grill and bar and then we still have the coffee house. We didn't make it to the pizza shop but heard great reviews. In general The Spirit Tree experience can be described as filled with life: Whether we are talking about horses, donkeys, cats, and dogs residing on an active picturesque ranch. Or we are talking about the many projects and repairs in the making reflecting broader interests and dreams to pursue, or we are referring to the beautiful outdoors with birds, plants and other wild of every kind. Oh almost forgot- there is also the kind of life that comes from opportunity for both quite solitude and fun filled friendly conversation. Aside from a little extra dust in a few corners and some repairs needed here and there, this is an absolutely wonderful place to visit.


Delightful Host and Hostess, Charming B&B, Quaint Town

3.8 on February 23, 2015

My husband and I have stayed at the Spirit Tree twice within the past year, both times we have found the host and hostess extremely hospitable, make every effort to personalize our stay and are very knowledgeable about the area and it's history. Exquisite meals are beautifully presented, yet we feel very much "at home" and welcome. Patagonia is a quiet little town so be prepared to enjoy some solitude.


Incredible place for birding and quiet

3.6 on February 10, 2015

This location is a birder's paradise--one couple we spoke with saw 100 species of birds in three days. The flagstone-covered patio was a perfect place to sit and watch a variety of birds. It was also quiet and peaceful. And you get a view of an ancient cottonwood tree (over 240 years old!) in the adjoining pasture. The hosts are very warm and friendly, and the breakfasts were outstanding--we had mesquite pancakes one morning! This is a rustic old (built in 1924) ranch house on beautiful property. I would stay again.


Perfect retreat

Thank you for a wonderful weekend in the quietest and prettiest places around Tucson. It was a perfect vacation!


Friendly, Peaceful Stay

3.4 on October 15, 2014

Although the owners were not present, the family of sisters covering were very cheerful and friendly. I specifically enjoyed going for walks in the morning w/the family dog who seemed to know the way and 'expect' to walk with you. My favorite element of the Spirit Tree Inn is the QUIET and the very comfortable bed. The breakfast on Day 2 was very delicious and filling. The is OUR SPOT when we come through Patagonia.
