If you're looking for an elegant and comfortable place to stay during your next trip to Bisbee, head out beyond the downtown district to the section called Warren and stay at Calumet and Arizona Guest House.
Although Calumet B&B is not located in the center of Bisbee's historic district, for us it was ideally located in a relaxing neighborhood nearby. We had our standard poodle (named Bisbee!) with us, and hostess Joy made us all feel welcome. After touring and shopping in Bisbee, we were able to return to the quality atmosphere of the Calumet, to spend time in our suite or walk our dog along tree-lined streets, to a neighboring park and even a ball field.
The Calumet is a lovely place, with historic details and spotlessly clean rooms. We stayed in the Executive Suite, which was a large and modernly equipped suite adjacent to the main building. We were able to sit outside our room in a cool and cozy patio as we wished. Inside the suite was comfortably equipped with TV microwave, fridge, coffeemaker and walk-in shower. The king bed was a pleasure, and sitting areas around the suite made it all the more relaxing.
Hostess Joy did so much to make our visit a good one. Her breakfast, held in the Calumet's impressively set dining room, was delicious -- from the great coffee, to homemade jellies and hearty homemade french toast. Farm fresh eggs and delicious muffins rounded out such a tasty experience.
Before we left the Calumet, we sat outside with Joy in her beautiful garden, chatting about Bisbee, its character and history. What a great weekend -- We will return to the Calumet and to Joy's hospitality.
