Why BJ Gibbons chose Tucson
There's nothing close to this calliber of individualized hospitality in the area. Along with the setting of one of the most historic homes in the city, the private pool, and proximity to the daily downtown activities and sights, the Blenman House serves as a great jump off point for Tucson culture!
What makes this estate unique
A rare example of a San Fransisco Victorian interior meeting a Spanish colonial-style Adobe foundation, The Blenman House served as a post Cival War home for 4 generations before opening to the public as a Bed and Breakfast in 1999. Many guests who stay don't even need a car (although we have free parking) as there is so much to do within walking distance!
