Quiet, Comfortable Get-away

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at The Homestead. The themed decor really adds to the experience. No significant concerns and the owner was very responsive to any questions that we had. This is a very quiet, out-of-the way location, while being convenient to all basic needs (5-10 minute drive). The sunrises over the mountains to the west were great, especially from the upstairs balcony on the back side of the house. We had everything we needed to be comfortable for our one-month stay. We highly recommend The Homestead.

Restful retreat

  • 5 of 5

We really looked forward to returning to this beautifully decorated desert retreat at the end of each day. We were in Tucson for the gem show and had little time to enjoy all that this place had to offer. None the less, we slept well and enjoyed the beauty. I hope to return.

A Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

The house is very spacious and filled with artifacts of native Americans and the old west. As others have said it was like staying in a museum. It is nestled in the foothills which put it close to hiking in Mt Lemon and Sabino Canyon but also shops and restaurants are a short car ride away. We were lucky enough to stay when the wild flowers were in bloom. We enjoyed watching the ground squirrels, rabbits, quail and other birds while eating breakfast on the patio each morning. At night we sometimes heard coyotes in the distance. My inlaws were so impressed with our photos of the place that they too look forward to booking it when they come out to Tucson.

Beautiful and comfortable with a nice view of the mountains

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this home, which was part beautiful, comfortable home and part museum. Stunning Native American and western artifacts artfully displayed throughout this lovely home. Upstairs and downstairs porches, game room with pool table, fitness room and carefully selected collections of books - all added to the ambiance. In the "country" near Saguaro East and great hiking, but super easy drive to anywhere. We come to Tucson often and would not hesitate to stay here again.
