We were originally going to stay only one night at the Catalina Park Inn but were able to call the day before and add a night. We're very glad we did because one night wouldn't have been enough to soak up the pleasures of this B&B. After a hot drive from Santa Fe, the inn felt like an oasis--quiet, airy, cool, and inviting. Cookies awaited us in the first entry, and Mark showed us around, pointing out the iced tea and guest refrigerator in the pantry and taking us to our spacious room. We stayed in the Oak room, which had a very roomy sitting area, a four-poster bed, flat-screen TV, desk, and closet. Unlike the bathrooms in many B&Bs, this one was roomy. It retained its period feel, but the owners had thought of modern needs, like a portable cart with shelves next to the sink to put our toiletries. There was also a closet with shelves in the bath. The breakfasts were fabulous and pretty to look at, with regional touches like cactus syrup for the French toast. Mark and Paul are wonderful company and create an upbeat welcoming feel as people gather for breakfast. They're founts of information about the sights in Tucson, and you'd never know that they've probably had to go over the information a million times with other guests! They've also done an amazing job of creating an attractive cactus garden in the large space around the house, with sitting areas and inviting groupings of native plants. The park across the street adds to the feeling of quiet and relaxation, and the walk to 4th St. is pleasant. All in all, a great experience.
