About Ed Rosko

I first visited Bisbee in 2000 from New York City. It is an immensely charming place. I visited often and in 2010 I answered its call moved to this part of Arizona.

Everyone has a story as to how they got here. Most are quite amazing. If you get a chance to strike up a conversation with one of the 'locals' ask 'em,--you may learn something and at least you will be very entertained!

Ed Rosko purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Ed Rosko chose Bisbee

This is an amazing property. Built by an artist, first, as her studio and with an addition of a sleeping loft in 2008, it became her home. The house has very unique spaces, an incredible view from the wall of windows that open to a small deck.

The area the home sits in is actually carved out of the stone and mountain that surround the house.

When I purchased the property I told the previous owner that in my eyes the home is a piece of art all by itself. She said. 'You get it..you understand this house!'

So, if you enjoy the beauty in architecture, nature and art (the house is full of it), you will enjoy your stay at the BLUE HOUSE!

What makes this cottage unique

Deck that overlooks the town. Close to everything, yet secluded too. New furnishings through out. Art, books, vintage vinyl and record player.

Comfortable and quiet

  • 5 of 5

We were charmed by the Blue House. The location is perfect—a very easy walk to downtown and the mine tours, but far enough away from the crowds that it feels peaceful. The electric fireplace works great, the bed is comfy, and the balcony has nice views. There is a small market where you can get espresso drinks, wine, and snacks literally steps away, and a pretty good pizza place basically across the street. You also can head up the road to walk all over the hills around downtown Bisbee. We hope to stay here again!

NYE in Bisbee

  • 5 of 5

Bisbee is fun for the New Year. The Blue House is just fine for 2 people. Nice location, only a 8-10 minute walk from the city centre. Pizza and mexican food across the street plus the market is really close. The deck is perfect to watch whats happening below you. I recommend this place for sure.

A special quality of light

  • 5 of 5

I loved this place so much two weeks ago that I’m staying there again this weekend! It had everything I needed & was very comfortable. And the early morning light streaming in the windows is very special.

Quaint little home on the hill

  • 5 of 5

Great location! Everything was perfect. The only thing the house was missing is citronella candles for the patio, so we bought some! We will definitely stay there again when in Bisbee!

Perfect little bungalow!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying here at the Blue House. The house is cozy, has everything we needed and more. The little deck out front was perfect for lounging, and the close proximity to many shops, restaurants and bars made outings a breeze!

High Desert Market

Location, location, location! The BLUE HOUSE has one of the best locations in town. Close to all of the fun attractions but secluded enough to offer relaxation at the end of the day.

High Desert Market is a short walk from your door. They offer amazing meals, gourmet cheese, fresh vegetabes and fruits, wine, beer and awesome smoothies!

Screaming Banshee Pizza is also a local favorite and is ideal for brickoven pies and a late drink.

Even more:

Shopping, restaurants, art, music and theater venues are a short walk from the BLUE HOUSE. If you're looking to learn a little more about Bisbee, museums and guided tours are available too!

Bisbee is a very active town, events happen almost every weekend. Posters announcing what's new can be found all over the city or check the visitor's center downtown. Explorers welcome!
