Quaint 1884 brick home within easy walking distance of library, WNMU, downtown restaurants, co-op, and hiking on Boston Hill. Great spot during Tour of the Gila (top of the hill on the criterium course!) or walk to Blues Fest. Enjoy your morning cup of coffee in the sun on the front porch. Grill and have a family dinner on the backyard patio. We hope this house enables you to enjoy a slower-paced life and a comfortable home base to explore the natural beauty, arts, or wildlife of the region.

The space
Please feel free to message me regarding COVID-19 precautions. I can fill you in on our booking and cleaning procedures during this time.

Bedroom one has a queen bed and the second bedroom has a full bed, both with room-darkening curtains. Perfect for couples or small family. Twin-sized aero bed and extra linens also available.

Kitchen is fully equipped with utensils, dishes, pans, coffee maker, and cooking essentials (oil, salt & pepper, etc). Right off the kitchen area is a washer. The dryer is located in the garage, which is right out the back door and down a few steps.

Bathroom is stocked with shampoo, soap, towels and essentials. Easy-entry shower has grab bars and shower seat.

WiFi throughout house. Central heat. AC window units for the hotter months. We do not have a TV and hope you have plenty to do so you won’t miss it! There is a small radio with Bluetooth and USB capabilities to stream your favorite tunes.

Enclosed and private back patio has seating area and propane grill.

Parking is on-street and shared with other neighbors. Please only park directly in front of house.

Guest access
Guests have access to the whole house, front porch, back patio and the dryer in the detached garage. The detached garage is the only shared space- we may come through the garage door at the back alley to retrieve our bikes occasionally.

Other things to note
We admire you self-powered visitors on your thru-hike or bikepacking adventures. If you are arriving to the house on foot or bike, we offer a 20% discount. Ask when requesting to book!

I'm a wildlife biologist who finds inspiration in travel. 5 things I can't live without: a family dog, my binoculars (I'm a birder), green chile, wilderness As a host, I hope Desert Cottage will provide you a comfortable place to explore our small town and beautiful region. I enjoy sharing my love for this area with others, so let me know if you'd like tips or suggestions of things to do (or birds to see)!
