This wonderfully managed B & B is on the eastern edge of Tucson, within a quarter mile of the Saguaro National Forest. There are only two rooms...both lovely. Ours overlooked the garden that has been lovingly nurtured by Betty and Harvey, the innkeepers. It is home to a wide array of birds and mammals. Sitting on the shaded patio with the morning coffee is alone worth the price. But, in addition, you get Betty's wonderful and varied breakfasts which manage to be healthful, fulfilling, and great tasting. Betty and Harvey are attentive to every detail. The result is a place that is much more than a place to sleep and have breakfast, it was definitely an important part of our vacation for which we are very grateful. I cannot single out one "best" aspect because the Desert Dove was excellent in so many ways. As for the least good aspect, I would say its location on the eastern fringe of Tucson was less convenient to the attractions on the Western edge and Tuscon is a large and sprawling city that requires a LOT of driving around. We drove, but we also took advantage of the proximity to the Eastern section of the Saguaro National Forest and we took our time in the morning and late in the day to watch the birds, enjoy the Spa, and truly relax.
