History, Wildlife And Privacy! Birder's Welcome!
Experience some Tucson history by staying in one of the original homesteads in the Tucson Mountains. Homesteaded in 1929 by the Canfields when their deed signed by President Herbert Hoover was received. The home is owned by family members who have kept their love of the desert region alive. Nestled in the Tucson Mountains, this ranch style, 2 bedroom - 2 bath, 1900 square foot house maintains it’s seclusion and privacy by being located on 3.3 acres of prime desert habitat where you won’t be surprised to see javalina, coyote, bobcat and deer. The owners are recreational birders and keep feeders full to attract many species of hummingbirds, quail, finches, sparrows, woodpeckers, thrashers and many other birds native to the area and passers through.
Just 15 minutes from downtown Tucson, U of A, and Tucson Community Center and 5 minutes from I-10 you can use this home for a base to most attractions around Tucson and surrounding areas including the world famous Desert Museum.
This is an ideal home for quiet private time, relaxed reading and writing, and as a base for some of the country’s most important Birding locations including Madera Canyon, Ramsey Canyon, Chiricahua Mtn range and Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge, as well as incredible hikes through the Saguaro National Parks, Sabino Canyon, Ventana Canyon, Pima Canyon, Catalina State Park, and other enticing locations.

We loved our time here. If you seek peace and quiet, nature and desert beauty this is the place to stay!! The house was very clean, stocked with anything we may need. The pool was relaxing. I can’t imagine a better place to stay!
Beautiful area, super friendly people, great place to stay!! It made my 50th Birthday spectacular!! We loved sitting by the fireplace at night, unwinding and talking about the days adventures. Highly recommended.
Beautiful home, perfect location!
We had a wonderful get away in this beautiful home. Serene setting, cozy fireplace, close to all the Tucson attractions and activities. The bird feeders made for wonderful mornings!
comfort and privacy not far from town
This house is a wonderful getaway. It is private and has beautiful views. There is plenty of room for at least 5 people. The living area with the fireplace is very comfortable.
Great Place to Relax
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Lazy C Homestead. The house was very comfortable and Becky and Daryl were friendly and helpful if we had any questions. They kept the bird feeders filled and we enjoyed watching the many birds. We spent many hours reading and relaxing on the porch. You really feel like you’re in the desert when you look around and see so many types of cactus. There are views of the mountains and the city of Tucson looks pretty at night when lit up. We saw javelina, coyote, deer, lizards, roadrunners and bunnies. We love Tucson and we’re planning to return to the Lazy C Homestead.
We are glad you enjoyed your stay and that all the fauna cooperated and showed themselves. We like to hear that the Homestead offered some time of relaxation for you.
Nice house in beautiful landscape. Enjoyed watching the birds. House has everything you need.
Minutes away from Wildlife Museum, Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, Old Tucson, Saguaro National Monument, many of the surrounding canyons, Mt. Lemon (Rose Canyon Lake).
