The Yates have created a wonderful bed and breakfast that was just what we were looking for on our getaway. The food was fabulous, beyond expectation, and the care we received was the best yet on all of our travels. Thank you for making our experience the best it could be!

Had a wonderful 3 night stay. Homemade breakfasts were amazing- with baked grapefruit with agave syrup ,fresh smoothies , amazing pancakes , chili cornbread and more. Provisioned dinners that we grilled ourselves were also delicious. The property is peaceful, with amazing views and starry skies. We went to a meditation session in the yurt, hiked, and enjoyed time with the owners, Nancy and John. Highly recommend.

My husband and I spent our 3-night mini-moon here and enjoyed everything about our stay. First of all, the location is beautiful. The canyon scenery is stunning and it feels so peaceful and remote--and it's only a 1 1/2 hour drive from our home in Tucson. The accommodations are lovely and really well appointed. We had everything to make our stay comfortable. The breakfasts are amazing. There is a wonderful variety of choices and we definitely felt well fed. They also offer a provisioning service of high-quality dinner fixings so you can cook your own dinner, which was handy for us because we did not have time to shop for groceries before heading down. Finally, Nancy, Linda, and the other personnel were so friendly and helpful about everything. A highlight was arranging a massage with Sharon (sp?). She spent so much time with both of us and was very attentive to our individual needs. Best massage I've ever had. I've been recommending Cochise Stronghold to all my friends since we got back. I hope we get a chance to visit again sometime.

Outstanding Breafast served in your room, try the Almond Date Smoothie and Mesquite Blueberry Pancakes-Yum! Watch brilliantly colored birds feeding right outside your window and deer feed off the trees. View the stars in the night sky as you sit in silence before bed. You must take the Nature Trail Hike at the campsite nearby, you will see the Sulphur Springs Valley below and imagine Cochise himself looking out at the Chiricahua Mtns beyond. The perfect getaway, plan to spoil yourself with nothing to do but appreciate nature, quiet and peace.

Nancy and her staff were wonderful! They anticipated our every need, the service was perfect and the breakfasts were to die for. Nancy provisioned a great dinner for us, so we could stay on site and relax. We are already planning our return next year.

Perfect stay amid amazing scenery. Highly recommend this place to anyone who wants a weekend pampered getaway but still feels the desert life. Great hiking right from your room. Soaked in jacuzzi under starry desert sky.

If you are into the beauty of nature but don't like ruffing it this s a great place. This is an Eco designed passive solar straw bale home with all modern conveniences nested in a secluded canyon where Cochise used to hide. After a wonderful breakfast made from local natural ingredients and much love we took a short hike through the mountains and dry riverbed never running into another person, which I'm guessing has something to do with the time of year. Cold morning temperatures but just fine in a light jacket once the sun came out. Nancy, the owner, is quite nice and a wealth of information about about local nature and conservation. I wish we had stayed longer.

We really enjoyed our stay at Cochise Stronghold B&B. There is such beautiful scenery in the Dragoon mountains. Nancy is a great cook , we really enjoyed our breakfasts ! My favorite part of the stay was hiking right off of the property into the Dragoon mountains.I would certainly recommend this beautiful, peaceful place.

Starting with our first contact via email, and continuing throughout our stay, the owner, Nancy Yates, and her helpful, friendly and enthusiastic staff showed an exemplary dedication to providing the very finest wild country experience in a sustainable and eco-friendly manner. This is entirely appropriate for this fragile and beautiful desert land. Our visit was the high point in our trip to the Southwest and we will remember it for ever and plan to return!

We booked 2 nights in their yurt. What a wonderful surprise. Didn't want to leave. So peaceful wonderful people and nature wow. Bed was comfortable, place was clean and an absolutely wonderful place to hike around. Have highly recommended this place already to friends and family. Only problem we live so far away and won't be able to enjoy it as much as we would like. Anyone near the area should make it a habit it visit. Karen A. Kingman, Ks

Nancy and her staff were wonderful and attentive as they made sure we had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The setting is gorgeous, our casita was charming and well-stocked, and steps away from great hiking/climbing trails. The meals were fabulous and healthy(OMG!) and we took advantage of the meditation yurt, the hot tub and the masseuse. Calming, spiritual, and full of adventure and history. For those who want to get away from the crowds and enjoy natural beauty, we'd highly recommend this place. Great for couples and friends to reconnect.

We went for our 15th wedding anniversary. Having 3 kids - it was so nice to have peace and quiet! We saw lots of wildlife. Had 3 deer come to our back patio twice while we were there. Our favorite was the hottub under the stars - so beautiful! We took a small hike and just enjoyed being alone. I think there were at least 10 people other than us on the property but you would never know it. Worth the money!

Absolute had a great stay. Enjoyed the quite(reason for the stay) access to hiking and camping if one would need. Rooms where very accommodating with accessories and condiments beyond ones thinking in the kitchen Also the food was Awesome. Being vegetarian I had no problem with the menu and one can order in advance if a special meal would be required. You can hardly find a good restaurant that does that today. Very much appreciated. Looking forward to our next stay. Bruce

To sit outside and watch birds and deer coming to feed next to the patio was magical. This B&B offers peace and quite and Nancy and John have provided a little bit of heaven. I would recommend this place to couples who want to spend time away from the rat race.

We spent a weekend as guests of Cochise Stronghold B&B with family members from Great Britain. Nancy and John Yates are great hosts (Nancy is a fantastic cook!) with deep knowledge of the area's flora and fauna, hiking trails, and tourism points of interest. This Stronghold is a wonder....so many bird species pass through here one can study them from the porch! Each day started off with a truly sumptuous breakfast...healthy and of local tastes...not to be missed! We will definitely be returning here to experience different seasons.

My husband and I stayed at the Stonghold B&B for our 19th anniversary getaway. It was truly a remarkable place to stay. The room was impeccable and had love in every detail; we were frequented by visits from deer and too many types of birds to mention; nearby hiking was spectacular; and our breakfast was a homemade delight beyond our expectations. Two BIG thumbs up! We will be returning.

This is wilderness lodging to compete with an African safari. The suite is large and tastefully furnished including many antiques. The back patio provides a delightful cocktail setting surrounded by birds attracted to feeders and attracting the occasional Coue's whitetail deer looking for a handout. In front are comfortable rockers, a gas grill for those so inclined, and more mountain desert beauty. The provisioning service offered for the evening meals is superb and with little work allows the guest to enjoy an in-house dinner with just enough personal involvement to avoid feeling guilty. The included breakfast, as described in the brochure is "glorious" as well as delicious. If you are visiting the wonders of southeastern Arizona, you should not miss this one.

This is what a great B&B is supposed to be. The Cochise Stronghold B&B is the perfect balance of exotic and mysterious – comfortable and friendly – and uniquely American Southwest. The silence and clarity reminded us of the Sahara Desert, but our surroundings and accommodations at the Cochise were much superior. We stayed in both the Agave and Casita Manzanita. Both were a superb value. A minimum two-day stay is required. To stay less is to miss the experience. We stayed three. Nancy and Lyda and the staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. They take a sincere yet modest pride in their quality operation. The breakfasts are prepared to order from scratch. Try the Chile Rellenos Soufflé and the special Cornbread baked in black iron skillets. We dined on our patio where there is only one rule – you must share the area with colorful songbirds and a roving family of mule deer. We like photography. The photo-ops are infinite. Our six-hour hike into the mountains of the Cochise Stronghold was a lifetime memory. And our visit to the nearby (50 miles) Chiricuhua National Monument was a real Southwest treat. Look for the profile of Cochise in the mountains. If you like some adventure and history coupled with superbly relaxing experience, you must stay here. We arrived unknowing – we left refreshed and energized.

Fantastic stay at the Cochise Stronghold. Wonderful location for hiking or merely relaxing on the patio. Our family reserved both the yurt and a traditional suite. Both suited our tastes. It was hard to leave.

Visiting Cochise Stronghold B&B and hiking the entire E-W loop and return has been the highlight of our vacation. The food was out of this world and our every creature comfort was addressed. The Staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. We felt pampered and so well cared for. We will be back and plan to highly recommend this experience to our friends.

Last year we stayed in the Agave suite as a honeymoon experience. Waking up in the morning to gentle dawn with birds and wildlife right out the glass door was marvelous. Gormet meals served by our very nice hostess, who also helped with mapping our walks later. The place and surroundings are filled with good energy. This year we're staying in the yurt. I can't wait to get there and experience the peace, once again.

I took my (now) fiancee there for one night to propose her. The B&B is perfectly located in a small valley surrounded by beautiful mountains. It is peaceful, the host is very nice and served a delicious breakfast. The room was clean and well furnished, and jumping in a jacuzzi at night in the middle of nature is quiet something to experience!

Nancy and John have a priceless facility located in an amazing location. Whether you are looking for a quiet retreat by yourself or a relaxing time enjoying the magnificence of nature all around with someone special - this is the place! Not to mention the over the top breakfast served each morning by Nancy. Exquisite accomodations with the most personal of service. You will have a hard time beating this combination of most unique characteristics!

If you want a remote and peaceful retreat in the Arizona Mountains, you have found it here. The hosts have continued to add touches to make this extra special including the option to eat breakfast at your room or on the beautiful patio amidst the fresh air and beautiful scenery. The yurt has plenty of room for a family of up to 8 and is a great alternative to a stuffy hotel room.

I highly recommend this Beautiful Place of Peace and Tranquility for that "Higher-Self Attunement and Complete Connection to GOD-Creator." I did Myself a favor and Justice to allow myself to connect to such a Beautiful Spiritual Source! Thank you Cochise Stronghold B & B! My Book writing Was Completed right there !

I had the oppurtunity to stay with Nancy & John at their B&B in Cochise Stronghold this last weekend. Let me say that I enjoyed their peaceful and secluded location and wonderful surroundings. Upon checking in through checking out, it was a pleasant & relaxing stay. I had the chance to stay in the yurt, and would highly reccommend it to anyone looking for a cheap (but enjoyable) getaway!

The property is gorgeous! The food is glorious! Our hosts were friendly and helpful. Only complaint was that the hot tubs smelled alittle funky. I didn't give higher marks for "rooms" because there was no IPod doc in our room which I just assumed would be there. But overall I would recommend this place to anyone who wants to 'get out there' to experience an amazing part of remote Arizona.

My husband and I had a lovely and 3-night relaxing stay at Cochise Stronghold B & B in November 2010. We had originally reserved the yurt but were offered the suite at the same price since it had not been rented and we opted for this lodging instead. The B & B is located with a national park which is very special in itself. The view from the B & B is an outstanding one of the Dragoon Mountains. The wildlife including multiple birds and deer are clearly observable from the rooms. The Innkeepers, Nancy and John, were friendly, extremely accomodating and very knowledgeable about the area. Our room was very comfortable and clean and included a small kitchenette (with a small refrigerator, microwave but no stove). There is a cookhouse equiped with just about anything you would require to cook with a stone's throw away from the suite. It is dark at night though so a flashlight is very usefull if you need to go outside. A couple of excusions that we did and would recommend include Bowie National Monument, the Heart of Rocks hike in the Chiricahua National Monument and the Amerind Foundation Museum near Benson. We did not get a chance to hike in Cochise Stronghold but are told that this hike is also very special. Just another reason for us to come back to visit Cochise Stronghold B & B.

My husband and I spent two glorious days at Cochise Stronghold B&B. The setting was secluded and beyond beautiful, with wildlife, trees and birds all around and hiking trails right off the property. Our "casita" was lovely and we enjoyed the views from both the front and back patios. The breakfasts were so delicious. Nancy, thank you for your wonderful hospitality (and the sunflower!). Two nights were not nearly enough. We've been telling all of our friends about this place. We can't wait to come back for a longer stay.
