About sarahdorrance

We are bus riders, walkers, bicyclists and hikers and have enjoyed Old Bisbee and Tucson for years. One of us has a gluten allergy, both of us love good food and have been glad to find accommodations for dietary needs in Old Bisbee.

sarahdorrance purchased this house in 2011

Why sarahdorrance chose Tucson & Southern Arizona

We love Old Bisbee! It is one of our favorite places on Earth. We love the ease of taking day trips from Old Bisbee. The desert with its uniqueness of flora and fauna always astounds us, as does the great food near Sun Country. We enjoy the tourists as well as the local people, the architecture, history, and especially the art. We love Pride and appreciate that folks may come to Old Bisbee, AZ and be joined. Old Bisbee is a great get away!

What makes this house unique

Sun Country Guest House has a balcony with an awesome south facing view of the canyon. It is just a 5 minute walk to gourmet cafe/store and pizza and drinks. A 10-15 minute walk to historical downtown Old Bisbee shops, fabulous restaurants, good wine and local beer and art. It has organic linens and is kept nicely clean. We also have a property manager that arrives to give you the keys and a quick tour when you want to arrive.

Guestbook comments from the owner

After staying at the lower level studio for a weekend get-away, we decided it would be the perfect place to bring some of the family and celebrate my birthday. We rented both the house and studio and can say that everyone had a great time and loved the property. We all felt immediately at home - it was truly designed with an eye for comfort. I must say that having so many great spaces - indoors and out - is the way to go when with family! The streetside porch with wonderful views of the canyon and mountains is the perfect spot to both bird and people watch. The private back patio with gas barbeque off the kitchen is a great gathering spot while the lower (studio) deck is a cozy retreat to put your feet up and relax. My 7 year old granddaughter especially loved the vintage wall-mounted hand-crank coffee grinder and was the official coffee grinder for our stay. My grandson brought his skateboard and happily skated ahead as the rest of us footed it around Bisbee. We ordered a delicious enchilada casserole that was still hot when we arrived our first night there. It was really nice to arrive and have the main course ready and waiting. My birthday celebration was the best and Sun Country is the perfect place and location to enjoy all that Bisbee has to offer.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

I am particular about my choices for overnight accommodations, and perhaps my review will spare you from the same time consuming research.

My stay began by meeting the delightful property manager, Sarah. She was punctual, extremely personable, and exceptionally helpful. With her welcoming disposition we walked throughout the house as everything was clearly shown to me. Before she left I was told not hesitate to contact her with any questions.

Sun Country Guest House is maintained well and has a warm and cozy atmosphere with the added delights of beautiful views and privacy. The bed is comfortable, the shower is great, and the living quarters invite you to feel at home. Trust me, I am known to be finicky. You will not be disappointed.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Just exactly what we were looking for to escape a few weeks of Iowa winter.

Played golf several times, did a day at Tombstone, browsed the shops til I dropped

(she obviously lasted longer), and totally relaxed in a "home away from home."

Best of the best: Bisbee Breakfast Club. Ray M.

Quiet, comfortable and a short walk to town!

  • 5 of 5

We visited Bisbee for the first time last weekend and had a fabulous stay in the main (upstairs) unit at Sun Country Guest House. The location is perfect, with High Desert Market and Café (for breakfast and groceries), Screaming Banshee Pizza (for lunch) or the Bisbee Royale (for dinner or a movie) all just a five-minute walk away, and the rest of the many sights of Old Bisbee just ten minutes further east. If you don’t feel like walking into town on a given morning, then you can sit on the peaceful front porch and enjoy the sounds of birds chirping and the sun-dappled views of the surrounding hillsides ...

Aside from its ideal location, we also appreciated the cozy bedroom, the spacious kitchen, and the newly renovated bathroom in the upstairs unit. Overall, we found the property to be quiet, comfortable, and easily accessible, whether driving from Tucson or walking into town. We would recommend it without hesitation to anyone who is planning to visit Bisbee, especially for the first time.

Seattle bird watchers

Kitchen well equipped. Living room crowded and dark. Bed and bath fine. Clean. Convenient location to good restaurants in town. Don't miss Roka Café, The Table and Banshee Pizza, all well above average to excellent. Unit needs DVD instruction...red light means off, no light means on. To select input for DVD, don't select the two DVD inputs, but choose the Games input to watch DVDs. Duh!

Owner's Response: So glad you found the location perfect for your downtown forays, the sunny kitchen well equipped and the bath and bed to your liking. Thanks for the feedback about the DVD and we apologize that the directions were not clearly written in our book. The property manager Sarah, did not mind coming up to help with the confusion, she was glad you called and glad you figured it out. We will add directions to our house book for future guests. The large sunny balcony does shade the windows of the adobe living room keeping it, "yes" dimly lit, but enjoyable and cool in the summer months.

There are many outdoor activities in the desert year around. My favorite is sitting on the balcony and bird watching with the beverage of my choice. There are many different seasonal birds. The hiking is wonderful, whether you want to walk the many stairs and explore Old Bisbee, walk West on Tombstone Canyon road. If you keep walking you will arrive at a great place to see the lay-out of the area. This is a street walk. The road becomes unused except by folks who live in the area and then becomes unused at all. It takes me about an hour or so round trip. The hour does not include the hanging out time.There is shopping in very cool and inviting places if you walk east on Tombstone Canyon, many restaurants with very good food, wine, beer and cocktails There are cool dark bars to try, some have food and local beer making to experience. Old Bisbee has a community seasonal pool that is incredibly nice, with a slide. The park cross the street is a good place to have a lot of folks gather for a big meal. Tombstone is less than an hour away. Stop on your way in or on your way out. Go to the Lavender Pit, it's cool to see and understand the history of the area. There is a Smithsonian exhibit up in our local museum, also informational, see the changes time makes. If you just want to relax Sun Country Guest House is a great place for it.
