Bisbee house description

Named after the constellation Orion, which dominates Bisbee's spectacular night sky,  this roomy guest house overlooks historic Old Bisbee, with views to Mexico.  A five minute walk takes you to the center of Bisbee's art and entertainment district.

Accommodations include fully-equipped eat-in kitchen with a comfy window seat nook, two bathrooms with showers, laundry room, a dining area in the living room,  and two bedrooms with queen size beds.  An extra room  can be art studio, family room, or third bedroom with queen size futon. The covered front porch and spacious back deck have comfortable seating and great views.

Orion House has off-street parking, central heating and cooling, a flat-screen monitor with DVD/VCR player, WiFi, propane barbecue grill,  an extensive library of books and music, and complementary coffee.

A relaxing getaway for a single artist or a couple, Orion House  can also accommodate a larger group, with three queen beds, and cushioned window seats suitable for sleeping children or singles.  It can be a retreat for your artists' group, athletic team, or business associates, or a great place to host a party.

Well behaved dogs are welcome.  No cats please.

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About: Kate and Grady's home has always been a social center for artists, students and travelers. When they moved to Bisbee from California, they lived in Orion House while Grady built their new home in the adjacent lot. Then it seemed natural to open Orion House for guests. They have traveled extensively, and know what it takes to make you feel welcome and comfortable. They have recently returned from one year of travel in Southeast Asia and South America. Grady is a retired building contractor who teaches furniture-making to women in transition. Kate is an artist/clairvoyant medium. The Orion House is decorated with artwork acquired in Europe, Central and South America, the Caribbean and Asia.

                  Why Bisbee:
                  They bought this property after visiting Bisbee for a weekend and falling in love with the area. The cozy window seat alcove in the kitchen won Kate's heart. She has spent hours reading, relaxing and bird watching there. The location on High Road is ideal for its feeling of peaceful seclusion within easy walking distance from downtown, the magnificent views, wonderful neighbors, spacious house, garden and decks.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  It is comfortable for a single person, but can sleep up to eight. The layout and well-equipped kitchen and barbecue make it a great place to host a party, seminar, or other group activity. The fenced yard is dog-friendly.
