Mike and Angie welcome you to their B&B, “The Lodging Hub of Cochise County”. The B&B features 4 themed rooms with a large guest area and is located on The San Pedro River, one of the best birding areas in the US. The B&B is perfect for short day trips to historical sites, National Monuments, ghost towns, Tombstone, Bisbee, Kartchner Caverns, wineries, hiking, birding, San Pedro Valley Observatory and a movie studio. The dark night skies are wonderful for stargazing and the B&B has a Dobsonian telescope for your use. Enjoy the fantastic view along with a full breakfast.

Great Place

This was our first stay and will make it an annual visit. Mike & Angie are very sweet & accommodating. The property is breathtaking, especially as the sun rises. The beehive fireplace was a great feature in the Cowboy room. The bed was comfortable and breakfast was outstanding!

Arizona's Best

Couldn't ask for a better B&B , Mike and Angie are the best hosts ever. Their home is lovely, and breakfast is to die for. We enjoyed it so much, we cancelled another reservation we had previously made, and stayed another evening here. It was like leaving family when we left. Mel and Shirley Odegaard

Excellent location, albeit 'out in the boonies'....great facility; spacious, friendly folks -- I guess he best review we can give is that we are planning a return with friends!! the place is FULL of old west antiques and paintings. Highly recommended! (Why can't I rate the rooms etc as outstanding?? I would if it would let me!!)

Truly Amazing

Our four night stay at Down By The River Bed & Breakfast will be one of the most memorable experiences my wife and I have ever had. Mike made us feel at home with his hospitality, and the breakfasts were second to none. In fact my wife said they were the best she's ever had! Although it is off the beaten path, it is centrally located for the sights and activities in Southeastern Arizona. The area wildlife is amazing and quite diverse. We found it to be an excellent place to get away and spend some quiet time together. We enjoyed our evenings sitting on the patio and watching the spectacular monsoon thunderstorms and sunsets. We cannot wait for another visit in the future!

Perfect place

Wonderful out of the way location and so quiet. The decor of the Bird room and the common area was exceptional. Mike and Angie were outstanding hosts. Wished we could have stayed there longer than the 3 days that we did. There was lots to see in the area. Definitely would stay there again if we were in the area.

Oasis in the desert

I had a wonderful experience "Down by the River." Mike and Angie were great hosts and served gourmet type breakfasts. The room was spacious and comfortable and access to a patio and living room area truly gave a homey feeling. It was in a great location for a home base for day trips. Mike had suggestions for delicious dining in town and also had suggestions for sight seeing. Room Tip: Each room has it's own theme so check out the website, but every room is large.

A place to make memories

Down By the River B and B is an extraordinarily beautiful spot in which to enjoy not only the scenery and quiet, but a place filled with so many thoughtful touches and particularly wonderful hosts. You will not forget the hospitality, amazing breakfasts, and more-than-comfortable rooms. Truly a treasure!

away from it all

We very much recommend staying at Down by the River! We spent three nights while exploring SE Arizona. The hosts are very welcoming, and our room and the food were great. Nature lovers will like all of the birds at the feeders. When we left, we saw a javelina on the side of the road!
