Why BJ Gibbons chose Downtown
There's nothing close to this calliber of this property in the area. Along with the setting of one of the most historic homes in the city, the private pool, and proximity to the daily downtown activities and sights, the Blenman House serves as a great jump off point for Tucson culture!
What makes this Estate unique
A rare example of a San Fransisco Victorian interior meeting a Spanish colonial-style Adobe foundation, The Blenman House served as a post Cival War home for 4 generations before opening to the public as a Bed and Breakfast in 1999. Now rented out as a full-house rental, many guests who stay don't even need a car (although we have free parking) as there is so much to do within walking distance!

Large historic mansion with exquisite furnishings
Beautiful old home in an excellent location in downtown Tucson. All kinds of eating and entertainment establishments within walking distance. The home itself was beautiful, with swimming pool and hot tub immaculately clean
Our family of 13 were very comfortable in this beautiful house. It was very convenient to downtown which was within walking distance. Children enjoyed the pool even in December and everyone appreciated the spa after a day of hiking or biking. Be sure you I know the difference Bremen renting the house as an inn and renting as a B and B.
We couldn't have been happier with this house. We had 11 family members together for a long weekend in Tucson and this house was the perfect gathering place. Huge, beautiful, comfortable and the perfect location. We could walk to many good restaurants, bars and coffee shops. The pool and hot tub was a great place for everyone to hang out. We loved it!
Thank you Jay! We hope welcome you back in the future!
