Lovely people, wonderful breakfast, clean and tidy room, comfortable bed all made for a restful stay at Desert Dove. The step down in the shower is quite unnerving to say the least. There really needs to be a permanent grab bar installed. I do not trust those suction type grab bars.
Thank you for your comments. We appreciate your input. I always mention the step down shower when checking in guests. We will consider the grab bars, however we are not a full HC bed and breakfast.

Betty and Harvey Ross are interesting, friendly, attentive, and helpful. They served delicious breakfasts and shared this time with us each morning. The room was comfortable, light, airy with a lovely view of their gorgeous desert garden and patio. There was plenty of space to hang and store our clothing and personal items. The decor throughout the home was lovely. The common room provided guests with a full sized fridge for personal items and was stocked with drinks and treats provided by our hosts. There was a coffee and drink machine and a microwave, dishes, silverware and a table. They even had a washer and drier for guests on extended stays. The Desert Dove is very well located for touring Saguaro National Park east and the entire eastern side of Tucson and not far from the historic downtown as well.
Nice comments! Thanks so much for staying!

Betty and Harvey have designed and built a wonderfully inviting Bed and Breakfast! They are the most welcoming hosts, and their home is beautifully decorated and equipped for their guests. Betty cooks a gourmet breakfast in the mornings, and their yard is a treat as well. The Desert Dove lies just right outside the main entrance and visitor center of Saguaro National Park East, so there are miles of trails to explore almost from their doorstep. I would highly recommend a stay in this beautiful home!

Trying to escape Marylands snow, we booked a stay with Betty and Harvey for Valentines weekend. We were greeted with such warmth and incredible hospitality. The room was immaculate, the bed just right, and the thick adobe walls made for the utmost silence perfect for an easy nights rest. Breakfasts were healthy, delicious, and varied daily. Betty readily accomodated my wife with special dietary needs. Don't be afraid to ask for gluten-free, vegetarian, or other preferences. Once done with breakfast, both Betty and Harvey were filled with information on what to do and see in the Tucson area and beyond. We decided not to plan any activities for this trip, and just wing it as we went along. The info provided by the Ross' more than made up for our lack of planning. As busy as we were, Desert Dove also proved to be the perfect place to take a break, and just lay out in the sun reading a book with little more than the buzz of passing hummingbirds for a soundtrack. If we find ourselves in Tucson again, we would not hesitate in the slightest to stay at Desert Dove again. It's the perfect blend of Arizona sun and Minnesota Nice. Thank you Harvey and Betty for a perfect few days.
Happy to accommodate you both, a pleasure having you as guests.
