This spacious 2300 square foot, 4 bedroom, 2 bath distinctive vacation home is centrally and privately located in historic Old Bisbee, just minutes away from fine dining and shopping, yet not in the noisy heart of downtown. This 2 story home is perfect for a family or friend retreat, or a romantic get-away. Pricing is based by the number of people staying. The cost for 2 people is $175 a night, plus $25 for each additional guest per night. Summer prices are discounted (except holiday weekends). Last minute bookings are discounted (one week ahead). Dogs are $25 each. Sorry, but this home is not accessible to the disabled or recommended for anyone having trouble climbing stairs. Private parking is ABOVE the house, therefore you must walk down 40 steps. Travel light, I stock everything you'll need except your food and clothes. The house features vaulted pine ceilings, custom pine cabinets and trim, giving it a warm 'cabin' feel. There are 3 large queen bedrooms downstairs, each with french doors leading to multiple patios and gardens, and a 2 person hot tub from which you can marvel at the breathtaking view of colorful houses stacked along the mountainside or gaze deeply into the stars at night. Upstairs is a king bed suite with a loft, private balcony and bathroom. Fine art by local artisans can be enjoyed in every room. Professionally decorated, having an Asian theme of wood and earth tones, pottery, and also featuring items from Japan. Be amazed by one of a kind wrought iron sculptures all over the property, featuring multiple dragons, the lady taming the serpent and a life sized dragon gate. Enjoy cooking and entertaining in the open living area seating up to 15 people. A large, fully equipped kitchen includes sharp knives, gourmet cookware, formal and informal dishes and glassware, also pantry items (coffee, tea, oils, spices etc.). Luxury linens, towels and spa robes are provided. Customers often remark on how comfortable the beds are. Flat screen TV's are in all bedrooms and the living room. The home has central heat and air conditioning, ceiling fans, a gas fireplace and free WiFi. This home is truly the most luxurious, safe and comfortable vacation home in Bisbee. Private off street parking is available for 3 cars. Hiking paths are nearby, but just walking the multiple staircases in the area is the best way to see this historic town, built long before cars were invented. Well behaved children and dogs are welcome.
It is my long wished-for delight to share my Bisbee home with you and your family or friends. After 30+ years of renovations and reliance on many Bisbee artisans, the Dragonview is now ready for you to enjoy too. I hope you appreciate this unique town and renew your spirit in these magical mountains. My dog, Rosie and I live in the cottage, located at the far end of the property, so I am available to assist you if needed. I currently also work in Bisbee as a Community Development Program Manager for a 4 County area. I grew up in Canada, and moved to Bisbee in 1979. Later, I lived in Japan for 4 years, and was born in the year of the Dragon, hence my fascination with the creatures. The Dragon has many different meanings, but I like to think it will bring good luck to you! Be sure to take a picture with the life size Dragon Gate. I look forward to meeting you! Thank you for your patronage.
Bonnie Williams purchased this house in 1979
While still living in Canada, one day I looked at a map of Arizona, saw the name 'Bisbee' and suddenly 'knew' I was going to live there someday. I fell in love with it the first time I saw it, as many other residents and visitors have. The weather is near perfect, not too hot, not too cold, and the history of the area is fascinating. I love the sky, the stars, the mountain views and the warm people of this community.
There are few quaint and historic towns in Arizona, and Bisbee is the best. Slip back in time while enjoying modern amenities and inspiring views from this large and luxurious mountain home. It was half the size and quite a mess when I first bought it. It has been my 'art project' and a real learning experience, something like the old movie 'Money Pit'. The fantastic views and large yard were always there but I totally rebuilt the house, including pine wood ceilings and cabinets, stone walls and staircases, and the remarkable iron work all over the property.
Bisbee is primarily a walking town due to the many public staircases constructed over mule trails by the WPA in the 1930’s that are a must to explore. See the many unique and unusual hillside houses and gardens not visible from the streets.
While visiting, it is recommended to take in the Queen Mine Tour, Old Bisbee Ghost Tour, Smithsonian affiliated Bisbee Mining & Historical Museum, numerous art galleries, antique stores and many fine dining restaurants during your stay.
Bisbee is also centrally located for day trips to Tombstone, Kartchner Caverns State Park, and Chiricahua National Monument Wonderland of Rocks. Great birding opportunities are available on the property, at the San Pedro Riparian National Conservation Area, Whitewater Draw Wildlife Area and other nearby scenic locations.
