About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Play. Relax. Repeat...at the Doublejack Guesthouse!

Taking its name from the mining term to describe a two-man rock drilling team, the Doublejack Guesthouse is perched hillside in the heart of Old Bisbee, just southeast of Tucson, Arizona. This guesthouse offers dramatic panoramic views of historic downtown Bisbee and Mexico.

Built in 1895, before Arizona even became a state, this fully restored and charming one-bedroom miner’s cottage is located along an old mule path turned staircase above street-level public parking – accessible via just enough stairs to feel healthy! Walk to fine dining, arts, museums, galleries, evening entertainment, and historic attractions; watch great birding; access hiking trails right above the house; and relax and enjoy gorgeous sunsets and stargazing from your private deck.

The Doublejack Guesthouse offers king-sized bed accommodations, a fully equipped kitchen, standard-size refrigerator with ice maker, central air conditioning and heating, claw foot bathtub & walk-in double shower, flat screen monitor with DVD/VCR player, movie library, iPod docking station with radio and CD player, wireless high speed Internet (WI-FI), and complimentary locally roasted coffee and fixings for breakfast.

Thinking of making Bisbee your go-to vacation destination or your permanent home? I can help you purchase the perfect property for your needs! I am a licensed real estate agent specializing in residential, commercial and investment properties. Our guests made me do it -- they'd stay with us, fall in love with Bisbee and want to buy a house here! Let me show you around too!

Come with your sense of adventure and leave with a renewed spirit!

About Bob Klein

Tucson Magazine named Bisbee, Arizona “Best Place to Get out of Town” for 2009, but we discovered this charming historical mining town on a road trip years ago. It was late afternoon and the sun was just setting on the red-colored mountains that surround Bisbee when we drove into town for the very first time. It was like we were looking at a picture-perfect postcard! One year later we came back for a second visit and it was during this visit that we bought a 100-year-old boarding house (which we made into our home) and the 110-year-old miner's cottage (now the Doublejack Guesthouse) next door. We love it here! Your hosts, Jeff & Bob.

Bob Klein purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Bob Klein chose Tucson & Southern Arizona

Bisbee is a friendly and accepting community which offers everything from fine dining to old-west saloons, mining history, Victorian architecture, great hiking and world-class birding opportunities.

What makes this cottage unique

Whether you come for a weekend getaway or spend the whole week, you won’t run out of things to do or places to eat at.

Bisbee offers something for everyone – fun things to do, unique lodging, art galleries, and loads of shopping.

History buffs will discover an award-winning Smithsonian affiliate, the Bisbee Mining and Historical Museum. For the adventurous, there is the underground Queen Mine Tour. One of the best ways to experience Bisbee is to just get out of your car and walk around the charming alleys, stairways and sidewalks of Old Bisbee. Come with your sense of adventure and leave with a renewed spirit!

Great Value

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house. It's the perfect place for two people to stay in Bisbee. It's small, but has a surprisingly large outdoor space; there's a lot of vegetation for privacy, but it has a nice elevated terraced area that offers a great view of Brewery Gulch; it's close to things to do, but also a little removed from everything for peace and quiet when you need it. And, it's a fairly old house by Arizona standards, but it's been very tastefully renovated. The eggs, milk, juice, bread and coffee were very good and much appreciated. The bed was very comfortable and the shower was great! We appreciated the bird feeder being filled each morning and the hummingbird feeder activity off the deck. We recommend a visit to the Mimosa Market, the Old Bisbee Brewing Company, the Farmer's Market on Saturday mornings at Vista Park, and browsing the local antique stores. We had a very nice trip and we are sure to return for another stay at the Doublejack Guesthouse. Special thanks to Bob, Jeff and Trixie!

A little piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with Bisbee. Such a great weekend. Our little cottage was just right. Bob was perfectly accommodating to our needs. You will have to get yourself up and down the 75 stairs but we managed and just counted it as free exercise. Will definitely return. Thanks Bob!

Perfect little cottage...perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd time at the Double Jack and we loved it just as much as our first visit. As before, the place was neat as a pin and we felt like we were in our own home with our own private patio and private yard with a view of the canyon below! Love it!

Wonderful Experience!

  • 5 of 5

Every detail is attended to here. From the well appointed decor to the fabulous local coffee, this was a gem of a place. Bob was personable, professional, welcoming, and engaging. The rooms were spotless and comfortable, and fantastic view. Cannot think of a thing to improve. I will stay here again!

Perfect stay! We will return. Best location in town.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on a Tuesday and left on a Friday. Only negative is we wish we had booked a longer stay. The positive is we will return. Doublejack Guesthouse exceeded all expectations. The owner met us upon arrival to give us personalized tour of the cottage and brought us later fresh bread and coffee beans. The cottage is perfect for a couple plus dog with a sunny porch with a view, living/eating area that opens to porch, extremely comfortable bed and nice quality bedding and DVR with plenty of movie selections. The large double headed shower and a bathtub to die for was just so nice after a day walking Old Bisbee. THE best part of the stay was location, location, location. Just around the corner is the historic beautiful Methodist church with two other beautiful churches 5 minutes away. Roam up the road from the small parking lot to find some beautiful walls and gates homeowners have invested in an artistic way.... Go down to Brewery Gulch road taking it to the special Mimosa Market and Muheim House or to the brewery and restaurant and saloon etc.... 5 minute walk. Go up Main Street into Tombstone Canyon for a great walk then take the top road Clawson Ave back to the cottage. The center of Old Bisbee is only 5 minutes away where you can find golf cart tours if you can't walk too much...short stroll. This is an extremely dog friendly town with our dog welcomed on many business porches and inside bars. Parking was no problem for us and we had two cars.There are stairs to the cottage so make sure that is something you can do... Worth it for the views, quiet, and location. We enjoyed cooking our meals here at night in the well equipped kitchen after a day spent exploring.

Perfect location, classy hideaway with breathtaking views!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved our Doublejack Guesthouse experience~ From the moment we opened the lovely gate and entered the enchanting property- we were sold. Hosts Bob and Jeff anticipated our every need- and spoiled us with extras like fresh juice, great coffee and other goodies. Perfect size for a couple. Property was spotless -with roomy bathroom, cozy kitchen and wonderful outside areas to take in Bisbee's fabulous views. We got lots of exercise and loved walking to town for coffee and great meals. A special experience - we will be back!
