Downtown estate description

Historic mansion, with 6 bedroom suites with private baths, including 4 w/ private entrances. One of the most famous houses in the country as noted in the Wall Street Journal, Sunset Magazine, USA Today, and many other newspapers and magazines. Your first visit to The Blenman House will be truly memorable. Constructed in 1878, the Blenman House (as is listed on the Historic Register) is thought to be the only known example in the world of a San Francisco Victorian home built in Territorial-style of adobe mud. Restored to its original glory, it will take your breath away when you walk inside. Some of our suites are very large, ranging from 450 sq. ft. to 650 sq. ft. All suites have queen beds and private baths. Five suites are equipped with a television with advanced digital cable (inc. all movie channels), DVD players, white noise machines, safes, and mini refrigerators. The house has free WiFi and guest bathrobes, among many other amenities Three suites have direct access to a private garden with a pool and hot tub. We are located downtown 1 block from the TCC (convention center) and walking distance to the new street car, parks, many restaurants, the courthouses, museums, galleries, music venues, etc! Daily maid service available for $100/day if renting whole house. Check out our seasonal rates for the summer months, as low as $850/night for the house. Individual suites in our bed and breakfast available when the house has not been booked in whole. We still have Feb 2014 Gem show (Feb 2014) availability in individual suites! Please send inquiry for availability, as calendar is not updated due to use of other booking engines.

              Car: Recommended

              Located right in Downtown Tucson and walking distance to the street car and many of the city's finest restaurants, museums, art galleries, theaters, and shopping. Only 1.5 miles from the University of Arizona campus, making it a perfect yet tranquil stay for visiting parents and faculty. Only half a mile from the major interstate highways for easy accessibility. We welcome guests staying in Tucson for its many annual events such as the largest international Gem & Mineral Show, El Tour de Tucson, U of A Parents Weekend and student graduation, the 4 Avenue Street Fairs, and much more!

              Year Purchased: 2010

              About: We pride ourselves in our sharp attention to detail, our priority of maintaining clean, beautiful and peaceful surroundings and our thoughtfully-prepared and beautifully-appointed suites, in addition to our personal level of individual service. These cornerstones will mark the foundation of your guest experience with us and, along with many other quality touches you’ll notice, will raise your standard for overnight accommodations.

              Why Downtown:
              There's nothing close to this calliber of individualized hospitality in the area. Along with the setting of one of the most historic homes in the city, the private pool, and proximity to the daily downtown activities and sights, the Blenman House serves as a great jump off point for Tucson culture!

              The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
              A rare example of a San Fransisco Victorian interior meeting a Spanish colonial-style Adobe foundation, The Blenman House served as a post Cival War home for 4 generations before opening to the public as a Bed and Breakfast in 1999. Many guests who stay don't even need a car (although we have free parking) as there is so much to do within walking distance!
