NO STAIRS, On-Site Parking! Bisbee Casita Chiquita (300+sq.ft + gazebo) boasts fabulous location on "Quality Hill" where early Bisbee's most celebrated families lived.The quiet residential neighborhd is a 5-min.walk to Main St, 2 blocks to shops&eateries. Your off-street parking space is rare in Old Bisbee.Guests love the absolutely spotless Casita and its gardens & patio, all for guests' exclusive use and privacy.

The space
Casita Chiquita was built in 2018 in the gardens of the main manor house (built in 1916). It features a very private setting with a lovely screened gazebo for enjoying Bisbee's High Desert breezes while enjoying morning coffee or starlit nights watching falling stars while sipping a glass of wine. The gardens and patios are strictly for guests use. Guests will enjoy many works of art in the casita from the hosts' private collection.The bathroom features a vessel sink with a fish that just might wink at you. The fully-equipped mini-kitchen with electric stovetop, microwave, large fridge-freezer with wine chiller, coffeemaker and electric kettle is supplied with all you'll need to create snacks or meals and includes coffee, exotic teas, hot chocolate, chai, and some basic spices. You are welcome to snip fresh mint and herbs from the host's garden. If you enjoy a refreshing swim, the city's solar-heated pool is just 2 doors away (small entry fee, 0pen June to Labor Day but with COVID closures).

Guest access
For guests' total privacy, the casita sits completely separate from the manor house. Guests can also enjoy privately the patio with only an occasional hummingbird or butterfly fluttering by. Sometimes, the hosts' little puppy might pop out to "water" the garden and in the mornings during warm weather, the elf will have to also water the garden but will do so very quietly. You can practically reach out and touch the welcoming Mule Mountains surrounding Bisbee Casita Chiquita.

Casita Chiquita is in a very quiet residential neighborhood with no traffic other than the few neighbors -- the property sits on one side of an open plaza surrounded by just 6 other residences. Occasionally, the city's tour golf-cart comes through to show visitors the two art cars on the far side of the plaza and every so often a local family of 9 javelinas might stroll through the plaza.

For 26 years, Sandra ran her Cliff Cottage Inn in Eureka Springs, Arkansas (a Victorian artist colony in the Ozarks very much like Bisbee but a lot smaller!) and you can go to TripAdvisor, other sites and Cliff Cottage Inn's website to see over 500 five-star reviews submitted before she retired, sold the inn January 2018 and moved to Old Bisbee. Says Sandra, "Missing all the wonderful guests and the fun of having an inn, my fairly new hubby Carl and I bought a vintage 1916 home in Old Bisbee which now has a brand new never-used casita built in our garden, ready to welcome guests. I've had a very colorful and exciting life so far...learned to cook in France on an 18th century wood-burning stove when I was 18 and working on an advanced degree at Grenoble University in the Alps where I spent many hours skiing the avalanche trails.Before that, I was invited by Senator Wayne Morse (Oregon) to leave the UofO and come to DC to work as his constituent liaison while attending George Washington -- what an exciting experience in those days of statesmen rather than politicians! I then convinced Hewlett-Packard to create a job for me in their Geneva, Switz. office so I could go abroad as soon as I was finished at GW. After several years in France which included working on my master's degree while living in an 18th century villa outside Aix-en-Provence with no electricity (many candles and a fireplace in every room came in handy), no running water (I had to create a water line with a hose from the farmer's ditch and then stock up on chlorine tablets!), and the wood-burning stove. Before returning to the US, I took the last trip of the original Orient Express alone from Greece thru all those strange-sounding countries, with soldiers stopping the train and throwing passengers' cameras out on the tracks to be stomped on, leading male passengers into the woods never to return, and before finally arriving in Trieste, unhooking our car and leaving us stranded in the middle of the then Yugoslavia for 3 days without food or water! Well, enough of this nonsense. Before moving to Eureka Springs, at age 43, I bought a 35-foot sailboat, taught myself how to sail, got everything blue off the boat replacing it all with hot pink, and singlehanded my beloved sailboat (occasionally with my teenaged daughter as crew) from San Francisco to somewhere off Easter (Website hidden by Airbnb) took me 7 years but that's another long story. My husband Carl (a widower who became the Cliff Cottage Inn elf after we met and were married in 2010), is a retired medievalist and avid traveler. He, too, has had a fascinating life, with a B.A. from Washington U. in Victorian History and English Lit, a Master's from Stanford in British History, and a Ph.D from USC in Medieval History. Carl has enjoyed several careers before retiring and now loves RV adventuring between stints of innkeeping. (Carl and Sandra enjoyed a 2-year honeymoon, taking their RV 30,000 miles across the Trans-Canadian Highway, up the Al-Can to Inuvik at the Arctic Ocean, then over the Top of the World Highway from the Yukon to Chicken, Alaska, all around Alaska and then down Highway 1 to La Paz, in the Baja. Carl is just about finished with his book about their travels.) As hosts, they will happily share tales of their adventures.
