My husband and I have spent many vacations in Tucson over the last 25 years. This trip, however, staying at the Peppertreesinn Inn B & B we gained a delightful new perspective on enjoying Tucson. We've always stayed in the Catalina foothills but our choice from now on will be the Peppertreesinn Inn. Jill and Ron were beyond kind and helpful. They provide private, nurturing accommodations thinking of every detail including fresh flowers from their gardens in every room! Perfect weather allowed our daily breakfasts to be served on the patio and they were a "party for our tastebuds" and a visual delight. This set the tone for the day. I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay at Peppertreesinn B&B.

Incredible breakfast and a convenient, friendly place.

It has become a long standing tradition for us to stay with Jill and Ron at the Peppertrees. We have stayed at least once a year since 2004. The highlight has been breakfast every time. Jill is a formally trained chef and uses local fresh ingredients to consistently create the perfect breakfast. The presentation is wonderful (we have many pictures to prove it) and the flavors just great. We most often have shared a two bedroom guest house with another couple and it has worked out great for us. They are clean and bright and fairly recent bathroom upgrades have really topped off the accommodations. We have also let others know and everyone we have ever gotten to stay has been very happy they did. From the fresh treats that greet us upon arrival to the friendly atmosphere, we enjoy every minute of our stay at the Peppertrees Inn. We expect to be a regular fixture for as long as they have their shingle hanging out and we will look forward to it every year.

If you want to quickly feel like at home, stay at the Peppertrees B&B. We had the Sunset Suite, and we quickly felt like at our vacation residence.The owners service and food were well above anything you can expect if you go to any regular hotel. And it's centrally located and next to one of the most lively area of Tucson. Arnold says "I'll be back".

Cool & comfortable`
