Vail House Rental Photos and Description
House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)
When you reach the desert getaway home you will find that you are half way up the mountainside with a mountain backdrop and a valley view. The valley view is miles of Sonoran desert with a faint view of an occasional train at the bottom of the valley. At night, you see some lights from Corona de Tucson some fifteen miles away. The back of the ranch is straight up the mountainside.
Located next to Colossal Cave Park and Saguaro National Park in Vail, AZ (20 miles) outside Tucson, this truly is the Sonoran Desert to perfection. The rocky mountainside with gigantic saguaros and other cactus engulfing it makes it “incredibly unique”. Just completed: 600 sq. ft. deck complete with jacuzzi. Just the view is worth the price of admission.

Why Craig Wilson chose Vail
We love Tucson, but wanted to be able to get away to see bright stars at night, relax with a view, listen to only the noise of wildlife and enjoy each other..
What makes this house unique
The stars, desert, view, jacuzzi, hiking and relaxing. Walking through Colossal Cave Park and hiking the Arizona Trail.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Just a note to let you know we had another delightful stay at 1-mile Inn.
We enjoyed many a beautiful sunset from the front porch and Diane had her daily post-hike dip in the hot tub.
By the way, as of this year it is now possible to mountain bike from the
trail head at the N end of Alta Loma Rd. all the way to Hope Camp, picking up the AZ trail along the way. From Hope the AZ trail now continues (legally) northward to Pistol Hill Road. It is 7.4 miles one way, and the return trip is mostly down hill. This would be a good route for people at the beginner level of mountain biking (as compared to the more difficult sections farther south), although I also enjoyed the ride as an experienced biker. You might pass this info on to future residents at 1-mile Inn, who are interested in doing some mt biking.
