About the Property
House, 2 Bedroom + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-5)
Get lost in a retro Mexican fiesta of fun and fantasy.
Surround yourself among the giant rocks and natural desert landscaping in this special casa and former art studio. Lots of windows and light accent the high beamed ceilings. French patio doors open up to the balcony overlooking the compound below. The old-style Mexican architecture takes you back to another world with custom-painted walls and aqua-marine acid-stained concrete floors. This is a hand-crafted casita like you've never seen - full of artful decor, collectibles and wonderful Western books.
The bedroom features a queen bed, plus a bonus sitting room- office in the back which contains a single bed for another person.
The open living room provides a queen-size sofa sleeper for 2.
Hallway bathroom has a large bathtub surrounded by corrugated tin and tile. The Mexican talavera sink and countertop sets off the colorful accents.
A cheery, sunny tiled kitchen features a full-sized refrigerator and adorable turquoise stove with matching sink. Even matching dishes and Mexicanware add to the theme and details of this artistic casa.
The special creative accents, bright, colorful furnishings and collectibles, deliver a distinctively native Southwest flavor to our largest casita. Friedo Kahlo has nothing on us!
With our attention to details, we hope our guests are left wanting for nothing and feel totally provided for. We'll even fresh-cut your mesquite wood on the outdoor BBQ grill.

About the owner: I've lived all over the Great American West and previously owned a B&B in New Mexico. We're a professional lodging establishment and have been hosting guests around the West for over 15 years. In a past life as a ski bum, I also worked in the hospitality business in Sun Valley and Aspen. Collecting antiques and staging atmospheres is a passion, as well as international travel and cruising the USA in our vintage travel trailer or motorcycles. Down at the river, we trek into the forest and fill up on the abundance of nature or lose ourselves in our Moab-area red rock getaway near Canyonlands National Park in Utah.
Why the Owner Chose Morristown, AZ, USA:
Finding this river oasis in the middle of the Sonoran desert was a gift. I don't do winters, so Wickenburg hit the spot! It was the perfect canvas to create our hand-crafted casitas and share them with others. We've honored the history of former owner LaVesta Gardner's artist colony. She lived here and gave painting and pottery classes to Wickenburg residents. She is no longer with us, but we hope you'll feel her spirit which we've nurtured with artistic designs and colorful flairs throughout our rancheria. We live in a separate on-site residence and are here to assist guests in any way-- to visit and share stories, or leave everyone to their own private space. Meeting interesting visitors is the highlight of this business! We hope you'll find Rio Tierra a remarkable Arizona memory.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Though much of the Hassayampa River runs dry most of the time--unless it floods--we are blessed to have the sweet rippling waters run year round on The Nature Conservancy's 600-acre property behind us. Just a two-minute walk away, you can escape into the cattails, giant cottonwoods and willow trees along our private trails. Or be still and drink in the soft sounds of nature and wildlife. We'd love to help you plan a local hike or assist with travel plans any way we can. Trek to the top of famed Vulture Peak and feel on top of the world! You'll get kudos for that from everyone around! Back at base camp, we offer an outdoor pavilion to gather in, birdwatch in, BBQ in or stargaze in. On the flip side of life, Trader Joe's is only 25 miles away. What a perk!
