The SpaceBeautiful green and chemical free home in a rural area on 8 acres in Arizona Desert 50 minutes southeast of Tucson. Beautiful tile flooring throughout. Central air, under floor radiant heating. My home is located down a drive of 4 miles on well graded dirt roads. Wonderfully peaceful and lots of light, it sits 2 miles from the base of the Rincon Mts with only cattle property between the house and the Rincons. Gorgeous weather and sunsets, a great location for exploring southeastern AZ.....Chiricahua National Park and forest, Colossal Cave, Kartchner Caverns, hot springs within 15 min-1.5 hr drive. Saguaro National Park East, Tombstone, Bisbee, Patagonia and Parker Canyon Lake all within an hr drive. Mt Lemmon and Sabino Canyon, Madera Canyon, and Tubac as well. Restaurants in Benson, a 20 minute drive away. A wonderful place to explore and enjoy nature, decompress and feel purified. There is ample opportunity here for bird watching, hiking, photography, and cycling. You may see wildlife such as hummingbirds, roadrunners, coyotes, jackrabbits, and lizards on the property. And the occasional gila monster! I do have a cat who goes into hiding whenever I have guests, so you likely won't see much of her. There is a bedroom with its own private bath in home, use of kitchen and living area welcomed. A raw breakfast smoothie is available on request for an extra fee, trust me, it's delicious! Also, energy healing sessions and/or detox coaching available for a fee.

The SpaceThe cabin has a double bed - towels, pillows and bed linens provided. There is a counter for eating and food prep plus a sink and small refrigerator, a microwave, toaster oven and all sorts of electrical appliances for cooking. Heating is with a small pot bellied wood stove that came out of a caboose. Wood is provided. The bathhouse is separate with a hot shower, colorful Mexican sink and a composting toilet. There is additional space and refrigeration for food storage for long term stays. Sustainability is a watchword in this community which is most concerned about the impact to the land and its creatures that we humans bring. Outdoors next to the cabin is a Mexican adobe fireplace with a grill. Sit by the fire in the evening or get it going early and cook your meal there. The 100 yr old cabin seems to have an old fashioned 'pay it forward' atmosphere as people often voluntarily fill the woodbox for the next guest and leave the place surprisingly clean. Of course there are the sounds and smells of the animals along with a dusty desert atmosphere. We are part of a spread out working ranch operation. If this is objectionable, this isn't the place for you. This region is fabulous for hiking forever without meeting a soul. The San Pedro is famous for its birds and we can arrange for you to spend an exciting day with a gifted, local naturalist who will take you to parts of the region you'd never otherwise be able to see. If inclined you could even join us in the fields, where digging up young mesquite trees is an ongoing adventure to keep the irrigated pastures open for the cattle. They are part of the sustainable picture, running on range only as long as the vegetation will allow, returning to irrigated pasture when range grasses go to seed. This is grass fed/grass finished beef which you can purchase from me. From the cabin you can travel in several directions to explore Tombstone, 'the town too tough to die' or Bisbee's wonderful artists' work and mining history and tiny houses built up and down the steep slopes. The Amerind Museum in the Dragoon Mts is not far to the east. And to the west, is Tucson, rich in SW history, a 2 hr drive. The International Gem and Mineral Show is in late Jan/early Feb - is a fabulous wander and the Tucson Rodeo and parade is in late Feb. Then come the desert's spring flowers if the rains have been kind. When I was looking for property and came upon this place, I was really struck by the old cabin built into the side of the mesa. I could feel its potential and also its history. Once I settled in with the animals, I turned my attention to the cabin and saw, once I got windows in and opened it up, how welcoming it was. As was the land. The land is in one of the last remaining old mesquite bosques, very near the river, surrounded by desert leading up to mountains on both sides of the river. This is like a national park or refuge and is actually being considered for that status. The energy of the surrounding land is palpable. Native ancient populations lived here in great numbers and on the mesa above me is one of the largest documented villages. It is now under conservation easement. Baicatcan. The hiking or riding in the valley takes you into unspoiled deep wilderness. Before I moved out here, each time I visited the valley, I could feel my whole body expand and relax and let in this clean air and wide open space, the amazing quiet and peacefulness. It is possible to do a Spirit walk with some Native American neighbors, if you ask me to arrange it. Interested in Conservation Ranching? Know someone who is? We’re always looking for folks who would like to learn about what we are doing and would like to help. There’s often a fence to check on range (spectacular views), cows to look for on range (great hiking to find them if you can), or mesquite treelets and thistle to dig out of the irrigated pastures. Let us know if this is something you would like to explore, and we’ll work out a plan. Parking is right at the cabin and if you are traveling in a trailer, you can pull through. When I send directions to you, they will include how to get here from the Tucson airport. Most folks who have come here have a self sufficient streak in them, loving the wilderness and the quiet but also intrigued with this unusual and educated community that is working diligently at preserving this valley. The Community Center is within walking distance, always open. You may take your laptop up there for contact with the outer world as well as make phone calls. Cell service is very spotty, largely restricted to texting. Guest AccessGuests may have as much privacy as they wish. I will not be on top of them but I will be here when they are. They are welcome to come watch or help me feed the animals, clean stalls or groom horses. If they bring a dog, they must be aware of things they would encounter and be ok with them interacting with my dogs, livestock guardians. Guests have all they need in the cabin and bath house. Interaction with Guests2 days advance notice please .I enjoy time spent with guests, helping them plan their time here, suggesting activities and directions to explore. And of course offering driving tips. But they can be as much on their own as they wish. They remind me of the importance of preserving this region. The NeighborhoodThis unique valley is one of the remaining unfragmented regions of the state with one of the largest variety of mammals. The group of conservation minded neighbors, in concert with The Nature Conservancy, have managed to preserve a wildlife corridor from the mountains all the way to the river. It is rare to be able to live in such wilderness these days and I am happy to share the experience. Getting AroundYou will need your own vehicle to get here. But it doesn't have to be 4 wheel drive. However, you are traveling on dirt roads which are maintained by the county. Other Things to NoteI tend to have multiple exchanges with prospective guests which answer their unique questions. This gives us a chance to get a 'feel' for each other and let's me know how much privacy they need.

Benson is just a forty-five minute drive to Tucson. Getting AroundPublic transportation is limited in this area. Car rental prior to your arrival in Benson is strongly recommended. Other Things to NoteThe RV is setup and ready for your arrival at Cochise Terrace RV Resort, and the park fees are included in the Airbnb fees. Be sure to check in at the office and provide them with your car details upon arrival. If you prefer to do this prior to your arrival let us know so we can provide you with their email address. If you are traveling with children and plan to let them use the pool be sure to ask if you need to sign a waiver. We are not fans of traditional TV, therefore, we do not have cable or satellite in the RV. We do have a variety of DVDs for you to choose from. The park WiFi signal isn't always the best, so you may want to bring a hotspot for more dependable internet access. You may find a good signal in the club house.

About the area: The town of St. David is located in Southern Arizona between Benson and Tombstone. It was established as a result of the Mormon Battalion having earlier passed through the San Pedro River Valley in 1846. The San Pedro Riparian National Conservation Area starts in St. David, Arizona and extends to the Mexico border. The Holy Trinity Monastery is located south of the township. The water below this peaceful land is thousands of years old and forced to the top hydraulically due to the clay lenses originating to the east and at the base of the Chiricahua Mountains terminating 800 feet below Saint David. Artesian wells produce sweet and pure drinking water. The clear skies and 3,800 feet of elevation produce night skies that Van Gogh would have loved to paint. The proximity to the San Pedro river bank provides plenty of horseback riding opportunity and other recreational pursuits. This property is approximately 5 miles south of the St. David town center off of Highway 80, and 12 miles north of Tombstone, the historic western city and tourist attraction.
