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?

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


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: 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).

Why the Owner Chose Bisbee, AZ, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
