Down By The River is a Santa Fe style home located on the San Pedro River and is within sight of the northern end of the world famous San Pedro
Riparian National Conservation Area. The San Pedro, the last free flowing river in Arizona, is one of the best birding areas within the United States with an estimated
400 species of birds many of which migrate through the area in spring and autumn or winter in the area. Look at the Bird List page for the list of birds
we and our guests have seen in the area. The BnB is situated in the river valley with the view of mountains in all directions. To the east is Cochise’s Stronghold,
a part of the Dragoon Mountains where the great Apache Chief Cochise is buried. To the south is the Huachuca Mountains and the Tombstone Hills.
To the west is the Whetstone Mountains, home of Kartchner Caverns State Park. You will find a lot to do here.
At the end of the day, sit back on the patio at our San Pedro River bed and breakfast and enjoy the peace and quiet as the sun sets.
Watch the flocks of birds as they fly to their roosts for the night in the cottonwoods along the San Pedro River while the background of Arizona hues
in purple and pinks reflecting from Cochise’s Stronghold grow stronger. If you’re so inclined, BBQ your dinner on the grill, enjoy some Arizona wine and watch for the local wildlife
that frequents the property. For amateur astronomers, the inn has a Dobsonian telescope to view the planets or other
deep space objects in the clear dark sky. During the monsoon season you may be able to enjoy the rainshowers and the lightning show that Mother Nature
puts on free of charge.
In the morning, wake to fresh coffee and smoothies followed by a full breakfast. Sit back in the leather padded mesquite chairs while you dine at the large
handmade mesquite table and enjoy the morning vista of the cottonwoods bordering the San Pedro with Cochise’s Stronghold as a backdrop.
