Why cedric shackleton chose Bisbee
I've had vacation homes in this town for 35 years and love it because of it history, weather and physical beauty. The town is nestled in a valley of the Mule mountains. It's a liberal oasis in a generally conservative area
What makes this House unique
Biking, hiking, birding. Hanging out in local restaurants and bars. Enjoy the artist galleries. Bisbee is the friendliest of towns with active social scene.

Wonderful Home - Perfect Location
We really enjoyed our Bisbee get away in this wonderful home! The location is very convenient to walk to shops and restaurants and the neighborhood is nice and quiet. The walk to Main Street is steep but we had no trouble and we're in our 60's - just took our time. The kitchen had everything we needed, the linens were nice and fresh, beds comfortable and the home is well kept. We did not bring our dog on this trip but nice to know the property is pet friendly.
There is also a hot tub on property but we did not use it. Loved coffee in the morning on the lovely patio with nice view and star gazing at night with a glass of wine. If you are traveling with another couple, this home is perfect with a split bedroom/bathroom plan and general living area in the middle. All appliances and electronics worked well and the Internet was fast and secure. Cedric was delightful to work with and very accommodating to our needs. We definitely would like to rent this home again.
This is a lovely modern home conveniently located to the historic center of old Bisbee.
The property has everything you require for a perfect weekend in Bisbee. The host, Cedric, is very responsive. It is an easy walk to everything you need - yet far enough from the noise for a relaxing get-away.
Cedric was a gem to work with. His kitchen had everything and the pots and pans were quality, much easier to cook and clean. Bisbee is a fun place. we enjoyed sitting on the patio, star gazing. We will be back. thanks Cedric!
Wonderful Vacation Getaway
I've stayed here twice now. Location is awesome. Close to downtown but just far enough away to not hear the noise. Lovely views. House is excellent. Gotta love a hot tub after climbing all those stairs all day.
Lovely time in Bisbee
Lovely home in a charming town. Owner is very nice. Would love to return
Everything is better in Bisbee
Visited four years ago at this time of the year. We thought going back probly would be ok ...how could we have a fabulous repeat of a former visit. Last time we were here we broke our necks getting out and riding every rode in a 75 mile radius. This time...we are retired and I guess more relaxed...we just enjoyed walking around town every day to get our exercise then hopped in the car and revisited some very special places.
Top of the list for us are driving up to Montezuma Pass in Coronado National Monument. Challenging dirt road drive up to a view that is ...well it’s a view! The Whitewater Draw. Go out Double Adobe road to Central road and go north and watch for the signs to a place that will surprise you in December...just a few thousand Sandhills Cranes and other migratory birds just taking a break while heading south for the winter...we’ll thats a sight! The San Pedro House and the San Pedro Riparian area is a treasure. The birds this time of year are plentiful but the walking along the river under really huge old growth cottonwood trees is such a serene experience. It actually quiets my mind and s visit we discovered Santiagos and the magic of fish tacos. Had really nice Christmas Eve meal at Cafe Roka. It was a great time and we can’t wait to return to enjoy Cedric’s Hospitality.
