it was great. I loved that I could bring my dogs with me. The hosts were really great to talk to and had a lot of local information on places to eat and things to do.


Anniversary getaway

4.6 on October 27, 2016

Mary Jane and Tom were very hospitable and helpful with maps of the area for hiking. Very comfortable bed and cute room. We stayed in the Equine room. Breakfast was healthy and delicious. Patons Hummingbird sanctuary was awesome and we enjoyed hiking in the Nature Conservancy where it was shaded and the Sonoita creek was running. Very relaxing and we enjoyed feeding time with Mary Jane, her horses and Angel the donkey. Definitely recommend it!


This a a wonderful retreat

Mary Jane and Tom are great hosts. Everyone we met in Patagonia were so friendly and helpful. We loved our casita and would stay there again. If you are looking for a relaxing time to spend with those you love, stay here! We toured wine country, visited the unique stores in Patagonia, and slept like babies with the sounds of the quiet woods and the chirping of birds surrounding our casita. We will be back!

Nice, fun, quite


Second time around

4.4 on February 09, 2016

This BNB is set back in the canyon; secluded and peaceful setting. The house is vintage ranch house and is tastefully decorated. The hosts are extremely gracious and are happy to share stories about some of the local history and also bird watching. The breakfasts are always unique and delicious. The only issue I had was with the low water pressure that made it hard to get a relaxing hot shower in the room we stayed at. It wouldn't deter me from going back because it's always a great experience staying there.


A True "Diamond in the Rough!"

4.8 on February 01, 2016

My husband, dog and I came down from Phoenix to stay in the Homestead House for the week of Christmas. This was our first time in Patagonia, and we were absolutely taken with the area! The Homestead House was very comfortable for our needs. I cooked several meals in the little kitchenette, no problems. We were very comfortable in the king-sized bed. It was quite a change for us to have no access to Internet, email or television (in the Homestead House, but all are available in the main house), but... What a relaxing treat! We actually READ BOOKS and had amazing fun drinking wine, playing cards and other board games at night (a huge selection of old-fashioned games are in the main house). During the day we took a few exciting road trips (especially on a couple of the back roads!) and were enamored with everything Patagonia! The birds, the sky, the scenery, the weather, the town, the people... we loved it all! There is a wonderful organic store in town with an incredible selection of produce and meats... quite a surprise for such a small town. Indeed, we ate like royalty during this trip, in no small part due to the incredible breakfasts prepared by Tom every morning! We also enjoyed Tom's unbelievably delicious Christmas dinner on Christmas Day... what a treat! True 5-star resort quality meals, every one of them! We would definitely come back and stay with Tom and Mary Jane again. They are great people and we wish them the best.


Heavenly Getaway...

4.2 on January 15, 2016

We got away from it all to a place near heaven at The Spirit Tree. Mary Jane greeted us warmly when we arrived, and Tom prepared an incredible gourmet breakfast both days we were there. The outside grounds are truly spectacular, with the spirit tree the center of an incredible place. We loved sitting by the outside fireplace, taking in the solitude, save the gentle sounds of birds whispering close by us.


Bunkhouse Review

Great location, very private, hosts were very friendly, breakfast was tasty and unique. Cell phone service not very good. Next time we would probably request to be in the main house. Cute patio there.


Awesome little B&B off the beaten path

5 on September 22, 2015

This place was adorable!!! :) My boyfriend, myself and our dog went for a long weekend of hiking, off-roading and wine tasting. I couldn't imagine a more perfect place to stay. It's out of town a bit, which means it was quiet... yay!!! Their dog and my dog went for walks together every morning. Star gazing was incredible. Mary Jane and Tom are very knowledgeable about the area and offered us maps, directions, tips and tricks - you name it! And Tom's breakfasts were AMAZIIIIIING! Not your average B&B type of thing - definitely more gourmet. Can't wait to go back.


Tranquil Stay

I spent a very relaxing and enjoyable 3 nights at Spirit Tree. Having coffee when I wanted and breakfast too was absolutely perfect.
