A secluded getaway, Sanctuary Cove's Guest Cottage is surrounded by 80 acres of pristine Southwest Desert.
Stewarded by a non-profit, Sanctuary Cove is a place of respite from the happenings of modern life. The property has hiking trails, easy access to less explored areas of Saguaro National Park, a non-denominational chapel for prayer and meditation, an amphitheater overlooking the Tucson Valley, and a walking maze.
For more information, visit the Sanctuary Cove website.

The space
Sanctuary Cove's Guest Cottage is nestled within the Safford Peak Valley, twenty miles north of Tucson. The Cottage overlooks a stunning view of the Tuscon Valley, and is a perfect location for nature lovers, artists, and all others looking to get away. Originally built in 1960 and updated with modern amenities, the Cottage includes a sandstone patio perfect for a small gathering or to spend the heat of the day in leisure. All proceeds from the Cottage support the conservation of Sanctuary Cove.

Where you’ll be

Tucson, Arizona, United States

Sanctuary Cove is located to the Northwest of Tucson and is secluded from neighbors. With 80 acres of pristine desert land around you, your level of interaction with others is entirely up to you. As the property is open to the public from sunrise to sunset 365 days a year, you may see others quietly walking the property, sitting in the amphitheater or meditating in the chapel. We also host weddings, memorial services, and other events on the grounds, but its rare for those events to overlap with a cottage stay (unless you are hosting an event yourself! Please see our website for further details on event hosting).

Sanctuary Cove is situated next to Saguaro National Park with easy access to secluded and less traveled areas of the park. Sanctuary Cove is also a common starting point for Safford Peak's "Hike to the Top!". There are numerous hiking trails on the property if you'd like to stay close to home.

There are restaurants, a movie theater, and a supermarket within a 5-10 minute drive from Sanctuary Cove.
