We stayed in the "new" Casita on a very last minute extra night away. Maggie indulged us in dinner. She also outdid herself with our breakfast. The Casita is just amazing. A tiny fully equiped place built against a rock retaining wall. How they got so much into such a small space and make it all work and still feel roomy is beyond me. The bed was soooo comfy, and linens wonderful. The walk in shower with massaging foot stone bottom, non-slip I might add, Bliss. The kitchen has almost more than mine does at home. It even has a gas firestove. All of the little touches are amazing, stained glass over the bathroom door; special light fixtures abound; ample towels and robes. We ate out on the patio for dinner where we got to see the resident Javelina family, quite cute.. Dinner was the most wonderful grilled Halibut we've had in awhile. Breakfast for me, blueberry pancakes to die for. Mom had a skillet casserole dish that was wonderful. Only a few tiny nit picking drawbacks that I can find... Don't get there in the dark, the driveway could be a little intimidating. Nothing big deal, but in the dark could be unnerving. We are avid past campers so used to bugs, but we will come back in the "non" buggy time of year. Not the innkeepers fault obviously but there is so much outdoor space to enjoy and walk down to the river that we were a bit blue to have to stay mostly inside. That's ok, an excuse for another trip! The inside of the house is great and has soooo many things to look at out of curiousity that you could be there for days. However if anyone in your party has a problem with taxidermy, you might not be comfortable. I'm ok with it, but it made my Mother a bit uneasy. Nothing negative, just a heads up for some people. Maggie and Steve were both uber helpful about maps and the area. Last but not least... Maggie's dog Henri, who is quite obviously the King, was wonderful, He stole our hearts. Hope to be back soon.

I am so spoiled after staying in this quaint, private paradise. The food was delicious. The hostess was lovely and attentive when necessary but left us to our privacy when we were all situated. It was simple, yet elegant and luxurious. I didn't want to leave!

This was the best B&B experience we have ever had. The service and dining were beyond our wildest expectations. We will definitely stay again. Keith & Jo

If you are looking for a wonderfully private, natural setting with a warm, friendly and helpful hostess who creates fantastic gourmet meals ...then this is the place! Maggie's home became our home. We played for hours with the Polaris in the hills of the canyons and the riverbed. We hiked on and off property trails, wishing we had our fishing poles. Local wildlife wandered onto rocks by the house while we relaxed on the deck. Hummingbirds darted about protecting their territories and the sound of coyotes calling were heard each evening. Wonderfully serene. Amazingly relaxing. We are already working on dates for our next visit.

Maggie made us feel like we were at home, but not having to deal with the stresses of home. The food is outstanding! Better than any restaurant. The views are amazing and I can't imagine going anywhere else for my getaways. There is no cell service, which made my stay even more relaxing!

Our 1st stay was back in July 2009 and we have been anxious to get back there ever since! Maggie and Steve are both genuinely nice people that are easy to be around and excelled at making us feel at ease and welcome in their beautiful home. They are attentive without being obtrusive, nor absent when we had questions. Then there’s the food…or cuisine…depending on what we requested…FABULOUS! Maggie competes and has a some wins under her chef’s hat ¿ The Rock House has a fun and interesting history, sits on some of the prettiest property along the river, and has easy hiking trails that can be picked up right out back. If you want to spend the day feeling like you are camping in the wilderness, then return to a hot shower, luxurious linens, fine cuisine, and a comfortable bed, this is where you want to be. It is definitely where we like to be, and are returning for a 2 day stay in June – can’t wait!!

Wow! What an amazing bed and breakfast! We have stayed at a few BnB but this is one we will always remember! As soon as we arrived we were amazed at the beautiful location, breathtaking scenery and warm hospitality! We had private access to not just our room but to the whole downstairs with beautiful views from every window! Snacks and drinks are generously provided throughout the stay. Plenty of DVD's and books to choose from. Maggie is such a wonderful person that makes you feel at home. She is an outstanding cook! The food was incredible! Nothing is ordinary here! We had a great time going for a walk along the river and enjoyed the beautiful scenery! The jacuzzi and sauna were amazing. This stay gave us the rest and peace we needed! Thank you for sharing your paradise! K&A

Hi Maggie - Sorry it took so long for me to write something online. Dave and I absolutely just loved staying at your B&B in February. The weather was a bit drizzly...but we didn't care - it was beautiful. Thank you so much for the lovely and delicious dinner you put together for us and my Grandparents (92 and 94 yrs old respectively!). They really really enjoyed themselves. I hope to be back late June for another weekend....this time with my son for another visit. THANKS again! HOLLY BERRY and Maj. Dave Millett (USAF)
Thanks Holly! It was our pleasure - you and Dave are both super and we absolutely LOVED your grandparents! Steve and I only hope we can be as spry and witty as they are when/if we reach their age - in fact even at our present age! :) Hope to see you again soon!

This was THE most peaceful, beautiful setting. The home, the view and the hospitality was above and beyond all my expectations. I came looking for a place to spend some time to rejuvenate and I found that and much more. Maggie is an awesome cook and a wonderful hostess! Thank you for a stay that brought me back to life again! It could not have been more perfect! Thanks, Jeanne Robinson
Jeanne, Thanks for being the ultimate perfect guest and becoming a super friend as well! Jeanne has gone on to open a fabulous custom cake business - visit her website at: www.sweetblessingscakery.com Hate to admit it but as proud as I am of my baking she puts me to shame - but I love her anyway! Take care and I wish you great success Jeanne! Fondly, Maggie

Steve and I were extremly satisfied with our stay at the Verde River Rock BnB. Steve and Maggie were so easy to get along with. The hospitality exceeded our expectations. They felt like old friends. We didn't want our weekend to end. We have not felt that relaxed in so long. The food was out of this world delicious! I felt pampered and stress free. Thanks! We will be back!!

We had a great anniversary weekend stay here. The room was comfortable, the views were inspring, the food was delicious, and we had a blast on the Rhino ATV! Most importantly, Maggie and Steve were wonderful hosts and made us feel like friends. We highly recommend this beautiful place to stay. We hope to visit again very soon!

The home is gorgeous-like something out of a fairy tale! Our room was nothing short of fabulous! Breakfast was delicious and the hospitality devine! You will not believe the views surrounding the property. We did the ATV Rental, hiked, fished and then went to the Tonto Natural Bridge--so many things to do--we will be back to finish seeing and doing it all! An awesome weekend!! Simply stated B&B's simply don't come any finer than this one.
