Noftsger Hill Inn

425 E. North Street , Globe, AZ 85501 USA (Show map)


Guest rooms, which were elementary school classrooms in a previous era, are unusually spacious, each with a sitting area and private bathroom. Original chalkboards in the guest rooms are "decorated" with comments from past guests. The front rooms provide a panoramic view of the ruggedly beautiful Pinal Mountains. Rear rooms face the old Dominion mine, offering a picturesque view of historic mining operations. Generations of successful Arizonans were educated here, including Rose Mofford, former governor of Arizona.

Happy Days!!

This is probably the best B&B I have ever stayed in. Hugh rooms (you could live there), tub long enough to lay and soak in, and a comfy bed. There are books and literature everywhere, which I love. Rosalie is a wonder. She truly cares that you are comfortable and enjoying your stay. And, with her breakfast under your belt you are ready to enjoy Globe. We were visiting family over Thanksgiving and staying at this Inn made a perfect holiday. Thank you Rosalie!! Doug Bungert and Diane Swan.

Enjoyed our stay!

Rosalie was so friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was delicious! Our room was huge and I enjoyed the historic decor. We will be visiting again for sure!

Step back in time, sleep in class! Just fantastic!

The guest rooms are extremely large, converted, original classrooms with all the charm of when they were built (1907-1917) that offer breath taking viewings out of the massive windows. The rooms are beautifully decorated and comfortable and it's fun to read the thoughts of previous guests on the original built-in chalkboards. The innkeepers are absolutely lovely and know how to take good care of their guests with meticulous attention to detail. It was the perfect blend of feeling pampered and visiting with an old friend. The breakfast was top notch and had me going back for seconds. The entire space is lovingly restored and a very inviting place to hang out, unwind, soak in the the history and the ambience and watch the sun set. Prices are very, very reasonable and the location is a great central point to explore Globe and it's surrounding areas. Great value for the $ and a perfect, central spot. If you're planning on exploring historic Globe, don't let the Inn's location high up on the hill deter you - it's just few minutes drive to the historic district and parking is plentiful so had no issues, even on a busy historic homes tour weekend. Definitely will return

The Noftsger is an old historical school house in Globe, AZ, full of AZ history and whimsy. A party of 6 enjoyed a relaxing stay. Thanks.

November in Globe

This was an absolutely fantastic place to stay!! The rooms are HUGE, and you couldn't ask for a friendlier hostess than Rosalie! She is an excellent cook and we really enjoyed breakfasts at the inn. Globe is an old town here in Arizona, and wandering through historic Globe was also entertaining. Wonderful Mexican food place right in historic Globe too! Can't wait to go back.

Noftsger Hill Inn Was A Delight!

We were treated like family and welcomed warmly with all questions answered and every need met. The Inn was stunning beyond expectations. The rooms incredibly spacious, decorated true to the historical foundations, beds comfortable and charming. Details were seen to from the extra towels, the claw foot tubs, and proper period furniture. We were also provided with access to local interests and menus of near by restaurants, as well a served a beautifully presented and delicious breakfast. Four of us went and we all want to return again soon!

Great Stay!

Was in Globe for a 50th High School Reunion from Globe High. First time ever staying at a B&B. Had a very warm greeting from Rosalie and a tour of the old school. Our room was HUGE with all kinds of interesting items from years gone by. It was very clean and well stocked with towels & toiletries. Rosalie is not only a charming person, but I would say a gourmet cook. Thank you so very much for our wonderful stay at Noftsger Hill Inn.

Charming and comfy
