Husband, dog, and I spent 3 nights at the Silver Nickel at the end of January. While the location is perfect, and the facility is charming, well-appointed and spotless, it is the hospitality of Gwyn and John Kousky that really made our stay memorable.
We booked through Tripadvisor, and John and Gwen maintained excellent communication from the moment we inquired about available dates. They sent excellent directions, informed us that the cabin was available for an earlier check in time – if we wished, met us upon our arrival, showed us the features of the cabin, let us know that they were available if we needed anything or had any questions, texted us about the times to view the Super Blue Blood Moon Eclipse, and came over to bid us farewell when we left.
In addition to the usual amenities expected in a vacation rental, Gwen and John have included some little things that let guests know how much they care about making your stay a pleasant one. Firewood, some bottled water, aluminum foil, plastic wrap, olive oil, coffee, and a wonderful binder full of Tombstone area day trip ideas, are the kinds of details that let you know they want their rental to be a wonderful experience.
We plan on returning to the Silver Nickel; and, if you are going to be in the Tombstone, AZ area, we definitely recommend that you stay there, too!
