Picture yourself sitting in the private, fenced, tree-shaded courtyard of a charming and historic miner’s home located just a 4-minute walk from Main Street.
What could be more relaxing?
The Toland Adobe has 2 cozy adjoining bedrooms (queen beds) furnished for comfort with quality linens, and a bath with a clawfoot tub/shower. The living room contains a futon sleeper for additional sleeping accommodations. The house sleeps a maximum of 6.
Ready to take a break from sight-seeing? The house boasts a new flat-screen TV, cable, and a DVD/VHS player. Plus, you’ll find a CD player, dozens of CDs and an iPod docking station.
Want to stream video, listen to Pandora, or play on-line games? With our unlimited wifi, you are free to use the internet just as you would at home.
The original adobe structure has been modified and upgraded through the years. Its comfortable lounge areas and vaulted bead board ceilings will encourage you to kick back and relax. Several hundred DVDs and gobs of books line the living room shelves. Make yourself at home.
Because we want you to be comfortable year-round, the house has both a mini-split heating/cooling system and a separate window a/c unit in the front bedroom. We’ve also got rolling evaporative cooling units, just in case. But we’re talking Bisbee, not Phoenix. Bisbee has the best weather in Arizona.
If you enjoy cooking, you’ll love having everything you need to prepare great meals: quality pots and pans, sharp knives and numerous small appliances. You’ll love the outdoor eating area with its gas BBQ, too.
Worried about running out of clean clothes? We provide an indoor laundry room with full-sized washer/dryer.
Looking for something unique? The Toland Adobe is on the National Register of Historic Places and was once owned by one of Teddy Roosevelt’s Roughriders, Jesse Toland!
The Toland Adobe is reached via just a few wide/deep steps (no stairway) that ascend into a secluded garden courtyard, from which there is a partial view of the mountains. The yard is private (not shared) and is completely fenced -- perfect for those who like to spend time outside in a romantic setting and also handy for those with children and dogs. Enjoy the security of a locked gate and your own front door code.
Imagine the freedom you’ll feel sitting on the patio, reading a novel while the children and dogs play nearby. The owners have 8 grandchildren and are dog lovers who want to ensure kids and dogs are comfortable and safe. That can be hard to find in Bisbee, but with its garden courtyard outside, and hardwood and tile floors inside, the Toland Adobe is both kid- and dog-friendly.
We make things simple for moms by providing both a portable playpen/crib and a high-chair.
You’ll love how convenient the location is to downtown, yet how nice it is to escape to a peaceful home once you’re ready to relax.
The Toland Adobe has on-street parking, with even more parking in the free city lot nearby.
We know you want lodging reservations to be simple and easy. That’s why we have automated our reservation process to be entirely online. But, we can accommodate snail mail and personal checks (usually), too.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We took our two dogs with us to stay in this cottage. It is without a doubt the cleanest place we have even stayed and we have rented a lot. One particularly memorable place was filled with broken stuff - the phone, the shower etc. This place has everything in perfect working order, lots of hot water, good water pressure, quality cook ware, (NOT a dented pan left over at the end of a yard sale), sharp knives, good stove, oven, coffee maker and dishwasher. There is even a wall mirror to check the back of your hair!! Plenty of cabinet space and flat space in the bathroom so you don't have to try and hold your make up and comb and curling iron while trying to get ready in the morning. A working electric outlet in the bathroom! The bed is super comfortable, pillows and covers fresh and pretty. Our dogs (the girls) loved the yard and front patio. There are three kinds of pine trees in the front yard, which was a lovely surprise. The yard is super secure, if there was a way out, the girls would have found it. So we were able to let them play in the yard while we watched TV or read and didn't have to watch them every second. We never left them alone so I can't speak to that, but they played in the yard and flower beds and porch and just had a doggie blast. There are a LOT of books and movies, all in good shape like everything else. The furniture is also high quality comfortable stuff like you would have in your home, not the beat up smelly wrecks you sometimes get in rentals. The fridge is full sized, there are far more dishes and silverware than you will ever need, (I even found a potato masher - NOBODY has a potato masher in a rental). There is an extensive collection of spices, as well as some of the basics - sugar, flour, tea, which we did not expect. Another nice surprise. Out in the yard, we saw several types of hummingbirds. This cottage is owned by people who care about their customers. Very quiet, very safe, very nice. I would feel comfortable staying there alone. I am on disability and need wide flat stairs and some handholds and had them all. We have our reservations for our next visit.
We are Bryan and Becky McIntyre. We are a middle-aged couple who found Bisbee in February 2012 while escaping record-setting snow in our small northern California town. Bryan is a retired aerospace employee, and I work from home part-time. Our children are grown, and we have 8 grandchildren (ages 7 and under). We’re both active in our community of 5000 people (Friends of the Library, Rotary, Garden Club, all sorts of stuff).
We heard about Bisbee from J.A. Jance’s novels and decided we had to see what high desert winters were all about. T-shirts and shorts in February, that’s what Bisbee is all about! Within two weeks of our arrival, we had decided to buy a house there. Seriously. And no, it wasn’t something we set out to do. But we loved the town, and after two weeks of talking ourselves out of it, we contacted a realtor. The moment we walked through (the old) gate into the private patio, we knew The Toland Adobe was the house for us. A lot of elbow grease, improvements, and shopping later, we opened as a vacation rental in June 2012. We’ve been back many times to make more improvements and to hang out on that wonderful patio. Bryan is quite the handyman and built the fence out front and did all sorts of other jobs. We bring our two large dogs with us and often travel there with our small RV, taking 1-2 weeks each way to sort-of-camp along the way. We hope you enjoy your stay.
We chose this house because it had all of the features we wanted: it was only a few minutes from downtown, it has a fenced yard, and it has only a few stairs. It's amazingly private for a home that's minutes from downtown. There is no long hike back up the hills after dinner out, or dozens of stairs to climb with luggage or groceries. We spend as much time as possible at our Bisbee home, enjoying the lovely weather and walking the town with our two dogs.
