Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This spacious 2300 square foot, 4 bedroom, 2 bath distinctive vacation home is truly the most luxurious, safe and comfortable home in historic Old Bisbee. There are 3 large queen bedrooms downstairs, each with french doors leading to multiple patios and gardens. Upstairs is a king bed suite with a loft, private balcony and bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub. Customers often remark on how comfortable the beds are. Please note this home is not recommended for anyone having trouble climbing stairs. Private parking for 3 cars is ABOVE the house, and it is a narrow road to get here. From the parking lot, you must walk down stone steps with plenty of landings and railings. Alternatively, you can park on the main street and walk up stairs. Although not downtown, the house is only a 10 minutes walk to several restaurants, such as the High Desert Market. The house features vaulted pine ceilings, custom pine cabinets and trim, giving it a warm 'cabin' feel. 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. 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 many 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 19 people. Outside is 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. Pricing is based by the number of people staying. There is a base fee for the first 2 people, then $25 per night per extra guest. Some holiday weekends are a set fee. Kids under 6 are free, so don't indicate them as people staying or you will be charged. Travel light, I stock everything you'll need except your food and clothes, including bottled water, spices, tea/coffee, condiments and basic pantry items like flour and cooking oils, also cleaning supplies, paper towels, napkins, garbage bags. A large, fully equipped kitchen includes sharp knives, gourmet cookware, slow cooker, formal and informal dishes and glassware. Luxury linens, towels and spa robes are provided. 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.

About Bonnie Williams

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

Why Bonnie Williams chose Arizona

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Excellent property!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family. There was plenty of space. The kitchen was well stocked and bedrooms were comfortable. The house was very clean and inviting. The outside patio is beautiful. It was perfect for our young kids. The toys in the closet kept the kids entertained. The house was quiet at night. It is an easy walk to downtown. Checkout was fast, no laundry required. We had a great trip and would recommend this property to anyone!

Wonderful Bisbee experience

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay at this beautiful Bisbee home. Everything was perfect. The beds were great and the kitchen spacious and very well stocked. There was a lovely outdoor area and balconies as well as views of the town. We could walk to town, shops and restaurants. We would definitely stay here again!

Fantastic VRBO

  • 5 of 5

This home was one of the best VRBO homes we have ever stayed in. The pictures do not completely do it justice. Everything was immaculate and well stocked. We were a family visiting from Canada, and having the space to spend time and meals together was perfect. Tucked away in the mountain, up a pretty steep and curvy incline was the Dragons Gate. Lots of stairs but that was part of the fun. Thanks Bonnie for sharing your little piece of heaven with us.

Beautiful Home Well Suited To Our Needs

  • 5 of 5

We needed a place to stay in Bisbee as our eldest son was getting married there and we live out of state. With plans to accommodate 5 adults, we needed something roomier than a hotel room. Dragonview House was perfect for our needs!

The house was absolutely beautiful with the outside courtyard and surrounding area all well maintained. It was a nice, quiet place which allowed us to feel at home and at peace after enjoying the night life in Old Bisbee what with all the activity of the rehearsal/rehearsal dinner/wedding prep/wedding ceremony and reception, et al.

I only wish we could have stayed longer!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to write a nice review, that is appreciated! I'm so happy you enjoyed your visit, although it was hectic for you with all the wedding events. Thanks also for tidying up the house so well, I could hardly tell you had stayed! I clean everything myself so I know it is done right, and you made my job so much easier! Take care, and come back someday.

Wonderful property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at the Dragonview Mountain Resort. We held a work retreat there, and it was perfect for our needs. Spacious and beautiful and just a short walk to some wonderful restaurants. I would highly recommend this 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.
