About Lana Howard
Bill is a birder, golfer, and bridge player. I, Lana, am an artist, potter, tile painter and all-round-design nut. I also do a bit of real estate. We hike, bike, golf and bird together. Our little dog Parker loves hiking too. We are up early and to bed early. You won't see us unless we are coming or going and you look out the living window.
Lana Howard purchased this Guest House in 2012
Why Lana Howard chose Montana Vista
This is our dream property. Private, quiet, with 10ish acres of land where I can do anything I desire with my designs without rules. Beautiful sunsets and sunrises a star speckled night sky complete with shooting stars. The true desert southwest at its best!

Cute cottage and excellent hosts,and good birding area
The cottage is beautifully decorated, well set up for cooking,lounging around, and has good TV, internet and amenities. It is an excellent place for a dog with lots of trails to explore. You can get a good morning walk and the location is close to good hiking trails in the nearby mountains. It is also close to good birding areas even in the winter and Bill is very knowledgeable about birds and generous with his advice about where to find birds. I was particularly struck by how hospitable both Lana and Bill were. I made an error in the reservation and they responded graciously and reorganized things so we could stay another night. We will definitely stay there again.
We loved having the Bayley's. They were fun and interesting. The house looked great when they left. Even with the 2 dogs. Perfect guests. How we see them again.
Wonderful host! Beautiful place to stay!
The Howards were lovely hosts. We arrived very late at night and they were super accomodating. We felt right at home from the moment of our arrival. Lana's beautiful artwork makes The Pomegranate Cottage such a serene place to stay. That, along with the piles of books they've collected, made it the perfect place for my husband and I. There's plenty of room inside and everything that we could have possibly needed was there. Very thoughtful hosts indeed! Outside there are plenty of places to take a walk, observe the wildlife or ride your bike. Sitting on the front patio one morning, the overhanging tree was filled with little finches; delightful company. The roads in and out are definitely desert/dirt but we had no problems at all accessing the place...even in the dark. Lana had everything well marked for us. It was a wonderful stay. We will most certainly return, no question!
Thank you so much Jennene and Kevin!
It was a joy having you guys. You were very low maintenance and a wonderful to know. It is very special to be around lovely people who love life and wild life.
Cool cottage with lots of hiking opportunities
My husband, our 2 dogs and I felt very welcome at this beautifully decorated casita in the Arizona desert. The tile floors kept things cool and clean and the place was very well supplied with amenities basic and enhanced.
Sally and Bob were the best guests. Quiet and charming. We really enjoyed having them. You would never even know they had dogs. Very well behaved and clean.
We loved our week long stay at this comfortable and beautifully decorated casita in south Green Valley, AZ. While there we enjoyed several nearby attractions including shopping at Tubac, visiting/touring the San Xavier historic mission, Saguaro National Park, and Desert Museum. Bill and Lana were awesome hosts. We would definitely return and/or recommend this home to a friend.
