This is a 'Mom and Pop" Bed and Breakfast. They do all the cooking, cleaning and making up the rooms. So don't plan on getting there early because the front door is locked until 3 PM. Bring cash to pay for anything extra, like the room tax or t-shirt.
I had found a Groupon coupon and I knew my wife would love to take another trip to Bisbee. The weather was perfect but cold at night. There is a space heater in the closet which I should have used that evening.
John is very friendly and Paula is a little reserved, but they both made the experience of staying there enjoyable. The place reminded me up the days as a child. The room had lots of books and old antique rugs.
There is no TV's or radios, vending machines or ice machines. If you want to bring a soda or snack back to the room, you can stop off at the Circle K which is a half mile or less down the road, The bathrooms were small but adequate. The shower was fantastic, immediate HOT water.
The next morning, breakfast was whatever John and Paula decided to cook. They were serving a quiche which was very light, cinnamon sugar on half an English muffin, a small muffin and fruit. The meal also comes with orange juice and coffee. For me, I'm a breakfast person and it just wasn't filling enough, but it sure was healthy.
We were glad we stayed there and hope to make another trip to Bisbee and Tubac.
