My husband Frank and I just stayed at Down by the River and had the most wonderful time. Mike and Angie were perfect hosts. They fulfilled our every need and made us feel most welcome. They even left us an anniversary card, as we were there on our anniversary weekend. Each room at the B&B is like a museum. So many unique and memorable touches. The breakfasts were delicious and decadent. We look forward to returning in the future and would highly recommend it to anyone going to southern Arizona.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Western Room and loved the decor. The bed was extremely comfortable and it was especially quiet there.

Laurie and Frank.
Angie takes pride in her card making and if she knows far enough in advance that a special day will happen when we have a guest here she does make a card. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and we hope to see you again.

My high school friend and I spent the first night of our Arizona road trip at Mike and Angie's place. It was an excellent place to recover from the plane trip and to be introduced to Arizona.
The home is filled with southwestern items, but it is the setting that makes this place different. Off the beaten track to say the least and with those gorgous mountains surrounding the property you know you are in a special place. I enjoyed the birds and the other wildlife found around their home. Breakfast was early to get us on the road and the smoothies were really good. I will stay there again if I am in the area.

Angie and I know birders like to be out and about early. Being close to the San Pedro River makes that easy for birders that stay at our b and b. There are time like yours when you need to be on the road earlier and so we try to work on our guest schedule as much as possible. Hoe you do come back to visit because you will see how centrally located we are to all the birding areas here in Cochise County.

We spent one night here and wished we had booked more. Mike and Angie are superb hosts; the breakfast was amazing and Mike's even shared his birthday cake and wine with us. It was a real joy! Down by the River is off the beaten track but well worth seeking out.

We pride ourselves in being off the beaten track. We really aren't actually but being in the setting where we live makes people feel that this little oasis is so secluded. We enjoyed talking with you and wish that we had more time to spend with you. Come back at anytime and we will treat you just as well if not better than the first time.

We had heard that Down by the River B and B was an out-of-the-way treat, but my wife and I were overwhelmed with the tranquility and beauty of the place that Mike and Angie Hug run. We got to stay in the Cowboy room, as all four rooms have a theme. Each room contained a variety of antiques and framed photos of Old West posters, etc. The room was large and very comfortable, but the best part of the one night we spent at Down by the River B and B was visiting with Mike and Angie. Theirs is truly a wonderful story of getting away from the rat race of corporate city life and really 'living' in the quiet of rural St. David. They went out of their way to accommodate us in the morning, as we had an early schedule. The smoothies were great and the nut-laden toast and egg cup were delectable treats. We hardly had to stop for lunch that day. All in all, we would heartily recommend a visit to Down by the River. We plan to go back if we're ever in the area again.

We are glad that you found us to be such a highlight of your trip. We hope that when you have a chance to come again you are able to spend more time with us and really enjoy all the other things to do in the area. Winters in Arizona is a good time to return and bask in the warmth.

We just returned from a short yet refreshing get-away to Arizona. We met friends from Phoenix at this lovely bed and breakfast south of Benson, AZ. Mike and Angie greeted us warmly and obviously care about every detail of Down by the River. The rooms are beautifully appointed, the breakfasts incredible, the serenity and quiet very soothing. Definitely a special place!

Thank you for the kind words. We have had other guest that have traveled from different locations to spend time together at our b and b, since it was a half way point. We believe that we offer our guest that little something special to make their stay enjoyable. Hope to have you and your friends make another reunion trip in the future.
