About Marsha Wahl
We are retired, to the south in the winter months. Have been coming to Arizona to enjoy desert and family over the years. There are a lot of things about Arizona that make it a ideal place to stay.
Marsha Wahl purchased this Cottage in 2010
Why Marsha Wahl chose Florence
This home was, Len's Mom's. She enjoyed the birds and the unique plants. We are continuing the bird feeding and viewing. Caring for the many cactus. And adding to the mix. Some are well over 100 years. The first owner would grow plants mainly cactus. and blooming ones. The guesthouse was a work Higgens began, in 96. We remodeled and up dated it in 2011. So everything is pretty new. This we will continue to take care of. It is off the highway, and very quiet. Love the birds.
What makes this Cottage unique
Walking in the desert is unique. And cactus, and so different when you get close. Our son in law and daughter put a re purposed 18 hole mini golf course in. Makes putting fun! Most of our guest try this and get to liking the game. We have a camp fire night and get together for dogs and drinks.

Great place to stay.
We loved the guest house. Sparkling clean and very comfortable. Owners were very hospitable. Would jump at the chance to go there again.
Thank you for staying at our guesthouse. Enjoyed your visit, hope you can get back this way next year. Sincerely, Len and Marsha.
Nice place, quiet and comfortable
So much nicer than a motel, friendly hosts, nice location, comfy bed and all the amenities.
Thank you Tom and Amy for staying here. Come on back! Happy new year 2018!
Desert setting, five acers of desert, walking trail, some wildlife.
Birds of all sizes. the Quail come in by the dozens in the winter, to drink from the fountains. Hummingbirds, doves, wrens, hawks, a great horned owl visits time to time. Even a snowbird or two this winter.
Plants of the desert all to see. Blooming thru out the year. Several kinds of cactus. From yard and beyond.
BBQ on your private patio.
This a quiet area. But the amazing thing is the way the desert and the sunlight put on the most beautiful display. Every day it's a new show!
I have a couple of mt. bikes, if you ask.
Horseshoes, for a game. Putting Hole for Golf practice.
Mini golf, 18 hole and adding more this fall. Have putters!
Fire pit , on site, and on your patio, nice in the evenings, in the winter. my favorite is a roasting of the smores, local wine from the Windmill Winery in Florence.
Hiking the near by Box canyon, is a nice easy day trip , with a box lunch you'll need. Great for a average to beginner, to do. Its about three miles long, flat, with a gradule in cline. This was used by the stagecoach lines as a short cut from Florence to Superior, Az. Now when hiking I have a sincere appreciation for good shoes and SUV's.
( I did spot a big horned sheep on a trip out there , it was up near the top, at the beginning of the canyon.) There is a ATV outfit that does charters for this area as well.
