FAQs: 1) Check in is after 3 p.m., check out is by noon. 2) Parking in Bisbee is on a first come, first served basis. We have never had trouble parking right near the house. Generally, you’ll want to park perpendicular (or parallel) to Shearer across street, (there are usually two or three spaces available there) or directly in front of our gate. You can also park in the parking lot you skirt to get to the house.

No tax or cleaning fee for month-long rentals. VRBO's quote will show up higher than actual.

DOG AND KID FRIENDLY, VERY CLEAN.

--------------------------------------------------

Picture yourself sitting in the private, fenced, tree-shaded courtyard of a charming and historic miner’s home located just a 4-minute walk from Main Street.

What could be more relaxing?

The Toland Adobe has 2 cozy adjoining bedrooms (queen beds) furnished for comfort with quality linens, and a bath with a new custom walk-in shower and a new vanity, etc.. The living room contains a futon sleeper (new mattress in 2015) for additional sleeping accommodations. The house sleeps a maximum of 6.

Ready to take a break from sight-seeing? The house boasts a flat-screen TV, basic cable, and a DVD/VHS player. Plus, you’ll find a CD player and an iPod docking station.

Want to stream video, listen to Pandora, or play on-line games? With our unlimited wifi, you are free to use the internet just as you would at home. There's a Roku box so you can listen to Pandora or use your Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon accounts.

The original adobe structure has been modified and upgraded through the years. Its comfortable lounge areas and vaulted bead board ceilings will encourage you to kick back and relax. Over 200 DVDs and gobs of books line the living room shelves. Make yourself at home.

Because we want you to be comfortable year-round, the house has both a mini-split heating/cooling system and a separate window a/c unit in the front bedroom. We also have rolling evaporative cooling units, just in case. But we’re talking Bisbee, not Phoenix. Bisbee has the best weather in Arizona.

If you enjoy cooking, you’ll love having everything you need to prepare great meals: the kitchen is well-equipped with quality pots and pans, sharp knives and numerous small appliances. We love to cook! You’ll love the outdoor eating area with its gas BBQ, too.

A reverse osmosis system for fresh drinking water was installed in March 2016.

Worried about running out of clean clothes? We provide an indoor laundry room with full-sized washer/dryer. The laundry room is adjoined to the bathroom.

Looking for something unique? The Toland Adobe is on the National Register of Historic Places and was once owned by one of Teddy Roosevelt’s Roughriders, Jesse Toland!

The Toland Adobe is reached via just a few wide/deep steps (no stairway) that ascend into a secluded garden courtyard, from which there is a partial view of the mountains. The yard is private (not shared) and is completely fenced -- perfect for those who like to spend time outside in a romantic setting and also handy for those with children and dogs. Enjoy the security of a locked gate and your own front door code.

Imagine the freedom you’ll feel sitting on the patio, reading a novel while the children and dogs play nearby. The owners have 8 grandchildren and are dog lovers who want to ensure kids and dogs are comfortable and safe. That can be hard to find in Bisbee, but with its garden courtyard outside, and hardwood and tile floors inside, the Toland Adobe is both kid- and dog-friendly.

We make things simple for moms by providing both a portable playpen/crib and a high-chair.

You’ll love how convenient the location is to downtown, yet how nice it is to escape to a peaceful home once you’re ready to relax.

The Toland Adobe has on-street parking, with even more parking in the free city lot nearby.

We know you want lodging reservations to be simple and easy. That’s why we have automated our reservation process to be entirely online. But, we can accommodate snail mail and personal checks (usually), too.

Whether you’re renting for a weekend or for the season, you’ll want to find the best possible place. And you’ve found it: a great location, a sweet house, and a private yard.

What more compelling reason do you need to choose The Toland Adobe?

About Becky McIntyre

We are Bryan and Becky McIntyre. We are a middle-aged couple who found Bisbee in February 2012 while escaping record-setting snow in our small northern California town. Bryan is a retired aerospace employee, and I work from home part-time. Our children are grown, and we have 8 grandchildren (ages almost 2 to 14).

Becky McIntyre purchased this house in 2012

Why Becky McIntyre chose Tucson & Southern Arizona

We heard about Bisbee from J.A. Jance’s novels and decided we had to see what high desert winters were all about. T-shirts and shorts in February! Within two weeks of our arrival, we had decided to buy a house there. Seriously. And no, it wasn’t something we set out to do. But we loved the town, and after two weeks of talking ourselves out of it, we contacted a realtor. The moment we walked through (the old) gate into the private patio, we knew The Toland Adobe was the house for us. A lot of elbow grease, improvements, and shopping later, we opened as a vacation rental in June 2012. We’ve been back many times to make more improvements and to hang out on that wonderful patio. Bryan is quite the handyman and built the fence out front and did all sorts of other jobs. We bring our three large dogs with us. We hope you enjoy your stay.

What makes this house unique

We chose this house because it had all of the features we wanted: it is only a few minutes from downtown, it has a fenced yard, and it has only a few stairs. It's amazingly private for a home that's minutes from downtown. There is no long hike back up the hills after dinner out, or dozens of stairs to climb with luggage or groceries. We spend as much time as possible at our Bisbee home, enjoying the lovely weather and walking the town with our dogs.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I've been to Bisbee numerous times and the Toland Adobe is by far the best place I've stayed. The house is beautiful, and it's hidden from the street with a great patio/yard that was perfect for my dogs. Unlike many Bisbee houses, there were no steps to reach this one, which is fantastic if you're carrying groceries or aren't capable of stair climbing.

Everything inside the house was in great condition (I also loved the movie collection for guests!) and it was clean and quiet. It was located in Old Bisbee, just a couple minutes walk down to Main Street.

Becky (the owner) was a great landlord and responds to emails promptly. I would highly recommend the Toland Adobe to anyone looking for a Bisbee rental, and I hope to stay there again!

Lovely Bisbee Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented this property for 3 nights. The vacation home was lovely. The house was really clean, and it had a nice homey feel to it. I traveled with my husband, two children aged 7 and 5, and our three dogs. The house was well suited for our needs. Comfy furniture and beds. And, we liked the dining room table and outdoor patio so we could eat as a family for our meal times. The private yard was so nice - we sat out in it every day. We appreciated the fenced in property so our dogs and children could be free to hang out. The home is very private and has a mountain view. It is extremely close to town so you can get to main street by walking within 5 minutes. We walked everywhere in Bisbee and did a lot of hikes and explored all the steps. Needless to say, our dogs and children were pretty tired out by night time. The owner of the property is extremely easy to work with. I would highly recommend this property. My family and I will rent this property again.

Excellent location and adorable!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled down to Bisbee for the 4th of July and had an amazing time! I've stayed in other rental properties in Bisbee before and this was my favorite! So close to Main street. Also, you can't beat the 20-30 degree difference from Phoenix. We got some rain too!! We loved the patio and the house was clean and beds were comfy. Becky is awesome and responds very quickly. Thank you for letting us stay in your home :)

Perfect Location and Dog Friendly

  • 5 of 5

Perfect vacation rental in historic Bisbee that has all the modern conveniences but maintains the old miner home charm. Loved the fact that the kitchen has an RO purification system for drinking water and making ice. Eliminated the need to bring cases of bottled water. The fenced yard and patio are ideal for pets. My Great Dane, Scarlet, enjoyed running from the gate to the other end of the fence when people walked up or down the street. The higher elevation of Bisbee provided ideal weather. While it was 120 in Phoenix it was only 103 with a low of 70 in Bisbee. The location is ideal. I parked my car in front of the gate and didn't move it until I left 7 nights later. Took my Great Dane on walks to all the local taverns which are all dog friendly. Other rental homes in the area boost views but those views come with LOTS and LOTS of stairs and hills to climb. The view from the patio reminded me of being at a cabin retreat in the mountains. You can see the mountain and the three large pine trees provide shade on the patio and a mountain feel. Only a two minute walk to the Historic Copper Queen. Thank you for providing such a great place to stay in Bisbee and allowing pets. Scarlet thanks you too. She loved all the attention the locals gave her on the walks.

Lovely home conveniwntly located...

  • 5 of 5

Nestled just a block or so from the center of town, this historical home has the charm of Bisbee architecture with the comforts of being home. It is thoughtfully furnished and decorated with plenty of useful cooking equipment which was handy. It has a nice patio and courtyard where one can sit in the cool mornings and evenings. The owners are very accessible should you have a question about anything. And they allow dogs, which is a perk. This was a perfect visit..

Everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect quiet location, comfortable and clean home. It's nice to have a private yard for those traveling with a dog like I did, and a cute front porch to relax on with your morning coffee. Would definitely stay here again and recommended to others!

Wonderful Little House and Yard

  • 5 of 5

This lovely little house is the absolute best rental we have found in Bisbee. This house is spacious, spotlessly clean, accepts pets, is stocked with movies and books and is connected to speedy Wi-Fi. There are many cozy blankets, comfortable furniture inside and out, and a pretty layout created with vacationers and relaxation in mind. In addition to thick new towels and colorful sheets, there are numerous potholders, kitchen towels and washrags. (If you have rented much at all, you know how rare this is.) The kitchen deserves its own separate review. Every kitchen gadget and appliance you could possibly need has been provided. We have rented places before and made unhappy discoveries such as no coffee pot, no knives, one dented pan. Not so the Toland Adobe! There is a full set of cookware plus baking pans, a bread maker, potato peeler, and chef's knives. The yard is also spacious. Our dogs haven't found a way out in spite of searching. They are perfectly happy and safe alone in the yard and we don't have to watch them constantly. The yard is complete with pine trees and a Tombstone Rose bush, a large table with chairs enclosed behind a high fence. Complete privacy. This is a perfect little get away house. There are no stairs, which I really appreciate, and a new shower has been added. The water pressure is very high and there is plenty of hot water.

Map

Car: necessary

The house doesn't show correctly on Google maps: Google points to the orange house in front of ours. Our house is off the street, behind the orange house.

There is always something to see or do in Bisbee. Do you like to mingle with the locals and then head back to your own place and relax, away from it all? The Toland Adobe is a great place for that -- a few minutes on foot from most of the local events yet in a quiet residential area.

Here are the annual events:

Friends of the Copper Queen Library Chocolate Tasting, Cochise Cowboy Poetry and Music Gathering, Bisbee Fiber Arts Festival, Annual Copper City Classic Vintage Base Ball Tournament, Cinco de Mayo Festival, Bisbee Pride Parade, 4th of July Parade and Coaster Races, Pirates of the High Desert, Brewery Gulch Daze, Ironman Ice Competition, Annual Cars & Bikes Boys and Girls Club Fundraiser, Bisbee Bloomers Garden Tour, Bisbee Blues Festival, Bisbee 1000 Stair Climb, Rotary Wine Tasting and Taste of Bisbee, Copper Queen Halloween, Annual Bisbee Historic Home Tour, and Small Town Holiday and Festival of Lights
