Wonderful Vacation Getaway

  • 5 of 5

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.

Everything is better in Bisbee

  • 5 of 5

Visited four years ago at this time of the year. We thought going back probly would be ok 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.

Fantastic Location and a Great House

  • 5 of 5

We just spent two nights in Bisbee -- one of our favorite haunts. We have had our eye on Cedric's house for several years -- but it's always booked. We finally got lucky and it was great. Cedric is an excellent owner and easy to work with. The house is perfectly located, well appointed, a great design. We especially liked the openable window wall. We have stayed in many different places in Bisbee and we'll definitely do this one again.

We loved Cedric’s place. It was clean and had everything we needed. Enjoyed the hot tub and fireplace. Decor and reading material made us even more excited about Bisbee. The view from porch was amazing! Hope to come back again.

The house itself is a great experience!

  • 5 of 5

Landlord is super easy to deal with. He is very accomodating. The property is amazing! We have been to Bisbee many times and have tried many properties. None were as enjoyable as this! The bed was more comfortable than our own. We went during a cold blast, so the heated floors were great. The kitchen would please any cook. The fireplace was cozy in the evening. Our favorite part was all the windows and doors. It was a wonderful experience all the way around!

About cedric shackleton

Cedric Shackleton a medical research scientist originally from UK . I work at Children's Hospital Oakland on rare genetic disorders in children and live most of the time in Berkeley California.

cedric shackleton purchased this house in 2008

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.
