Overview

Photos and Description of the Bisbee vacation cabin rental

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

The Sleepy Dog Guest House is a one bedroom, artist owned, restored miner's cabin perched high in the hills above Historic Old Bisbee. Sitting on an acre of land, it is incredibly private and quiet--with no neighbors and no noise-- yet we are close enough to town that it's an easy stroll to great restaurants, shopping, sight seeing and antiquing. The Sleepy Dog's memorable atmosphere is regionally eclectic and features folk and contemporary art. The 850sf house features a sitting area, dining room, bedroom, full, working kitchen and a bathroom with deep, claw foot bath tub. There are two porches, front and back, one with Adirondack rocking chairs. We supply simple makin's for breakfast (self catering) in the morning and also coffee, and teas. The pantry is also stocked with basic spices. You will find a fully equipped kitchen with stove, refrigerator, microwave, coffeemaker, pots and pans, utensils, flatware and fabric napkins. We also use hand crafted goats milk soaps in the bath.

Our guests rave about the incredibly comfortable king sized bed, the well appointed linens, all cotton flannel in the winter and high thread count cotton in the summer, feather bedding and the clawfoot bath tub--great for a long, hot soak--and the stunning views of town and the Mexican mountains in the distance. The views from the house are without a doubt the best that Bisbee has to offer. Of course those views mean stairs to get to the front door and Bisbee is famous for stairs. Every October we celebrate them with the Bisbee 1000 Stair Climb when literally thousands of people descend upon town to climb up and down the hills and experience our unique setting. We also have our own private viewing point out the back gate and up a short trail where you can enjoy coffee in the morning or cocktails in the evening and watch the town unfold in front of you. It's a fun little spot unique to the Sleepy Dog. Our guests are welcome to use all of the sitting areas, porches, both front and back. And if one is so inclined there are hiking trails available literally out both the front and back doors. The overall setting is welcoming and private and is a convenient walk to Old Bisbee.

The Sleepy Dog is a perfect place to use as a starting point for tours of Southeastern Arizona. Bisbee itself has enough to keep a traveler occupied but we are close to the Mexican Border, Karchner Caverns State Park, Cochise Stronghold, the Wonderland of Rocks and historic Tombstone.

The Sleepy Dog is a guest house where we try to take a guest away from the stresses, aggravation, noise and light pollution and everything else that makes a city a city. The real basic things, like sitting on a porch in a rocking chair with a glass of wine or a cup of coffee, watching clouds move across the sky (a stunning venue for summer monsoons!), or soaking in a deep clawfoot tub are what we offer. The only connection we have to the 'real world' is WiFi. We do have a small television and a fabulous collection of movies which can be found in many drawers throughout the house.

The Sleepy Dog is the quintessential Bisbee lodging experience with hiking right out side the front door, amazing star gazing because of the clean, high altitude air, bird watching, and, of course, the house itself. The Sleepy Dog was built about a hundred years ago and reclaimed in the early 1990s but the feel of the house has been left untoched by stainless steel or granite counter tops! We are offering Bisbee visitors a genuinely quirky, colorful and unique place to stay that says Bisbee like no other guest house in town.

This little enclave of free thinkers and artists is also a very, very friendly Dog Town and so is the Sleepy Dog. We love having you and your well behaved pets stay with us.

The bird watching is also superb! Guests have seen over 30 species of birds ranging from sandhill cranes (10 miles away at their winter home), woodpeckers, roadrunners, goldfinches, vermillion flycatchers, lazlu buntings, towhees, juncos, owls, bluebirds to violet crowned, lucifer and ruby throated hummingbirds. There is a family of curved bill thrashers nesting in the chollo cactus next door.

Bisbee is a quirky little town and so is the Sleepy Dog--very colorful, filled with original art, kitschy collections and a unique blend of comfort, one of a kind decor, and amenities that bring our guests back time and time again. So, if you're looking for rest, relaxation and rejuvenation and an escape from reality for a bit there's only one place to stay, and that's the Sleepy Dog!

Our Cancellation Policy:

At the Sleepy Dog we rent the house by advance reservations only.

When you reserve the house, we agree to turn away all other requests for the house, guaranteeing to hold it for the dates you requested. Due to the limited number of beds (one), cancellations affect us greatly. We want our policy to be fair for our guests, yet

prevent loss of income to our house by cancellations. When situations arise

that necessitate a cancellation, we sympathize, however, we adhere to a strict cancellation policy:

We cannot be responsible for travel delays, health issues, inclement weather or early departures. Guests are responsible for payment of all nights reserved,

regardless of actual arrival or departure date. We will be unable to return any deposit monies without a 30 day notice. There will be no refunds for late

arrivals or early departures.

We look forward to your stay. Thank you for choosing us!

The mines that employed thousands of people in Bisbee closed their doors in the 1970s and many people had to leave town to find work elsewhere, so houses were abandoned, which made it a prime place for artists and other like minded free thinkers to gravitate towards. Throughout the years the houses have been reclaimed~just like the Sleepy Dog~but there are ruins of stairways and home sites and rock walls and rubble all across town. These things make Bisbee a photographer's paradise and a hiker's dream as there are staircases to climb and old mule trails to follow.

Incredible bird watching is also right outside the Sleepy Dog door. More than 30 species of birds including Mexican Spotted Owls, Great Horned Owels, six types of hummingbirds, Red Cardinals, Vermillion Flycatchers, Lazlu Bunting, Towhees, Mockingvirds, Solitaires, Wrens and Finches have been seen either at the Sleepy Dog itself or with a short day trip of the house.

Bisbee is a walking town, and a people town and a dog town. It's tiny, narrow and sometimes (more often than not) one way streets almost beg a visitor to park their cars and spend their vacation on foot. Although there's lots to see and do close by~Historic Tombstone, Karchner Caverns State Park, the Slaughter Ranch, Cochise Stronghold, the Wonderland of Rocks and Douglas, Arizona just to name a few. But the best thing to do in Bisbee is to relax, rewind, enjoy the quiet, the stars and the amazing fresh air.
