About Kate Bishop
Kate and Grady's home has always been a social center for artists, students and travelers. When they moved to Bisbee from California, they lived in Orion House while Grady built their new home in the adjacent lot. Then it seemed natural to open Orion House for guests. They have traveled extensively, and know what it takes to make you feel welcome and comfortable. They have recently returned from one year of travel in Southeast Asia and South America. Grady is a retired building contractor who teaches furniture-making to women in transition. Kate is an artist/clairvoyant medium. The Orion House is decorated with artwork acquired in Europe, Central and South America, the Caribbean and Asia.
Kate Bishop purchased this House in 2005
Why Kate Bishop chose Bisbee
They bought this property after visiting Bisbee for a weekend and falling in love with the area. The cozy window seat alcove in the kitchen won Kate's heart. She has spent hours reading, relaxing and bird watching there. The location on High Road is ideal for its feeling of peaceful seclusion within easy walking distance from downtown, the magnificent views, wonderful neighbors, spacious house, garden and decks.
What makes this House unique
It is comfortable for a single person, but can sleep up to eight. The layout and well-equipped kitchen and barbecue make it a great place to host a party, seminar, or other group activity. The fenced yard is dog-friendly.

Even Better Than it Looks
The Orion house is a truly joyful place. Everything about our stay exceeded our expectations. Grady and Kate are wonderful people and made us feel welcome and comfortable. The outdoor space was exceptional; beautiful views and birds, a serene place for coffee and breakfast in the morning and a glass of wine in the afternoon. The house is comfortable with well appointed kitchen and baths and we were happy to see a water filter for drinking. If you have ever had Bisbee water from the tap, you will understand our delight! So happy we had the opportunity to experience this place. Our dog Millie had a ball running around in the secure yard.
Thank you Grady and Kate for sharing this place, we truly appreciate your hospitality.
A cheery and cozy retreat!
The Orion house was a wonderful way to spend the weekend with friends!
A beautiful house perfectly situated to allow a great view of Bisbee.
The Orion House is very well maintained with everything you need for an overnight stay or an extended one. It has a beautiful garden outside, a deck with a great View and a place to be anytime of the day or season. I have stayed there several times and plan on visiting many more times in the future.
Wonderful home full of charm and stocked with food, coffee and a plate of home made cookies.
Kate and Grady were wonderful hosts. The house was exceptionally clean and well-appointed. Wish we could have stayed longer!
Another Perfect Stay!
This is our second stay at the Orion house, as we absolutely love it!! My husband and I take many weekend getaways to Bisbee, and the Orion house is by far our favorite place to stay. It's warm, welcoming, relaxing (best patio!!), perfect location and fits the bill in every way possible. Thanks for another wonderful weekend!
