“wonderful respite”
Reviewed 29 March 2013

This B&B is in a perfect location for visiting the Saguaro National Park and surrounding attractions. It is perfectly decorated in a southwestern theme - such attention to detail! Everytime i would look around the huge suite we had, l would see more art work. there are fantastic meditative gardens would native plants. The local birds - humming birds, quail and cardinals to name a few - are attracted and you can sit and watch them. Saguaro and agave are on the property as well as an observatory! I saw a jack rabbit. The manager has wonderful suggestions that were perfect for our trip and we would not have known about otherwise ( e.g., where to eat, to go over Gates Pass). I could not be more pleased. We will be back.

Room Tip: there are no bad rooms. I was traveling with my brother so we needed separate sleeping and fairly l...

We recently stayed at Cat Mountain and thoroughly enjoyed every part of it. The room was wonderfully decorated in the southwestern theme, the bed was very comfortable, and it was quiet, a real plus for a light sleeper. Everything about our 3 night stay was perfect and we highly recommend this to anyone who wants good quality and friendly atmosphere.

Room Tip: We stayed in Spencer's Suite and it was spacious and very well appointed.

Cat Mountain Lodge was great. We did the two hour observatory and got a full two hours of personal attention from an astronomer. She let us look at whatever we wanted and got to see stars, super novas, galaxies, just to name a few. I recommend doing the observatory for anyone staying. The lodge rooms were huge. Four of us stayed and enjoyed the garden, hummingbirds, and overall atmosphere. Staff was great and we have nothing but praise to say about the place. Breakfast vouchers were more than adequate for a huge breakfast at the Coyote Pause Cafe which was within walking distance. I read the reviews before we went and everyone was dead on. The lodge did allow us to bring our 5 and 8 year olds and the 5 year old claimed the "fancy hotel" was the highlight of his trip. Easy commute to Sonoran Desert Museum, Old Tucson, Saquaro National park Visitor center. Had movies in the lobby (no kid ones) you could get any time.

Room Tip: Sierra Madre is great for families with children. Real spacious.

This lovely Bed and Breakfast met and exceeded my expectations in every possible way. Ambiance, service, landscaping, you name it and they have it covered beautifully. I am already looking forward to visiting again.

Room Tip: Take time to walk around the grounds and research a bit about the owners. Their story is fascinating...

We stayed in the lovely and huge Sierra Madre suite and had a wonderful three nights here. The room was comfortable and everything we could have hoped for, the hosts are very friendly and helpful, the common area with cookies and a computer a nice touch, but the real beauty of the place is how close it is to the great outdoors.

Before you even step outside, there is a lovely cactus garden in the inner courtyard; then you are surrounded by Saguaro cacti outside the windows and around the grounds. You are just a few miles down the road from the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum and the Saguaro National Park, where we spent a whole day and then were very happy to have just a few minutes' drive to get back to the lodge and rest from all the activity.

The included breakfasts at the Coyote Pause were fine, and by the second day the waitresses thought of us as regulars and remembered which of us were tea drinkers and what else we might want.

The Cat Mountain Station consignment store was also a hidden jewel. We didn't go in until our final morning and I was very glad we hadn't missed seeing it, even though we didn't have room in our suitcases to get much there.

If we are in Tucson again, we will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: We loved the Sierra Madre suite; I didn't see the other rooms so cannot compare.

We are in the middle of a two week (12 days) stay and that in and of itself should tell you what we think of this place. Each day we receive a free voucher for either breakfast or lunch at the local Coyote Pause Cafe. We ate there last year several times as well and every meal was/is delicious. It may sound like I own the place and want to do some self-promotion. But the truth is, we are happy here and find it easy to recommend. It's thumbs up for the Cat.

Room Tip: We are staying in the Fiesta Room.

Our stay here was a delight and a deal! The room and setting was lovely and comfortable. Coyote Pause Cafe offered great meals (breakfast or lunch is included in each night's stay) The Lodge's commitment to conservation and ambiance is admirable. We enjoyed hiking in the area, biking and a wonderfully fun evening dinner at Fred's Arena Bar and Grill about 14 miles from the B&B. Music and dancing the first and third Saturday's of the month was an extra treat. We also enjoyed the guided star gazing from the lodge's own small observatory, Spencer's Observatory. Kat greeted us when we arrived, friendly and welcoming. The small marketplace of shops offered more diversion.

Room Tip: The Fiesta room was large and had a lovely view from the window over the bed.
