High Desert Getaway

4.6 on May 22, 2018

Patricia was charming and gracious, the home was filled with mid-century art and decour. The five acres offered stunning views, quail, rabbits, doves and beautiful night skys. Near enough to town to be able to go to dinner and enjoy the city and then return to the peace and solitude of the desert. We will definitely return.

Ideal “hiking gals” getaway!

Short 5-min drive to Broadway & 15-min to Douglas Springs Trailheads, Saguaro NP East is perfect for 7AM cool morning hikes. Pat, gracious host, has a fabulous sense of humor. B&B with burbling fountain, pool, dark AZ night skies, surrounding open space, and ranch-style home, is a perfect getaway. My friend and I shared a room with a 3/4 length wall separating the two beds: wonderful blend of together yet with one’s own space. Love the collegial breakfasts & coffee anytime. I’ll be back!!

Great place to stay.
