High Road House sits on the highest street above downtown Old Bisbee with great views of the Mule Mountains and into the mountains of Mexico.
It is an early 1900's miner's home that has been adapted to expose optimal light and space. Walking trails through a mountain oak hillside begin directly above the house. The house is comfortable, quiet, and private.
The house includes a secluded veranda, queen-size bed, full kitchen, bathroom with claw-foot tub and shower. Original Bisbee art and murals by local artists and wildlife sculptures create an ambiance unique to Bisbee's art community. The house sits on the famous Rose Stairs, part of the Bisbee 1000. The stairway leads to the downtown area, stores, art galleries and restaurants. There is off street parking above the house.
Enjoyed every minute in this eclectic little place perched high above Bisbee! The view is second to none, and the cute little patio a real bonus. The owner's attention to detail included some great morning eats too. Loved it!
We sensed we were in for a treat just from the communications we had with the owners prior to our arrival. Then, on arrival day, all of our anticipation and fears were allayed. The photos hadn't been PhotoShopped, the reviews about the refrigerator full of provisions for our first morning meal weren't exaggerated and the warmth and attentiveness of our host and hostess were spot on.
Our three weeks did pass and we had to return to the Tundra. But during those three weeks we visited beautiful bird conservancies, caves, Chirracahua National Monument, watched stars (oh my the stars) and climbed a few stairs. One of our favorite activities was to just stay home, sit on the porch watching birds and reading our books. The people of the town were extremely friendly, and everyone knew Tom & Helen. It was an absolute treat and I know were going back again.
Out of all of the great options in Bisbee, how did we get so lucky to pick the High Road House? The location was excellent and after each day of exploring, the artful amenities were delightful to come home to. A well stocked fridge with everything we needed for daily breakfast was frosting on the cake. Excellent communications with Helen before and during our stay. If you haven't been to Bisbee--go there! If you have been to Bisbee, but have stayed somewhere else--stay here!
When we arrived at High Road House there was half and half, artisan bread, eggs, jam, butter, coffee, muffins and even mustard in the refrigerator. The place was very clean and pleasing. The little porch is so pleasant and perfect to sit in and look at the town and mountains. It is so close to the action yet removed enough to be quiet and relaxing. This is the second time we have stayed here and we'll do it again. The view is beautiful. The landscaping outside of the porch is lovely and attracts so many birds and hummingbirds!
This quixotic very green house high on the hillside at Bisbee was a fun place to stay. We enjoyed the wall of windows that let us watch the sunrise from bed each morning. This house circa 1902 has all the conveniences including a claw-foot bath tub and is filled with artsy things. Excellent cable TV and internet too. The owner, Helen, is very friendly and helpful and we loved the scones, fresh eggs, bread, butter, juice etc that we found on arrival. Everything to have a wonderful breakfast without having to run out immediately to find a grocery store when we arrived. She was also a wealth of info on the town including recommending a hair-dresser and letting us know about a symphony that was coming to town.
We spent a full week at High Road House in mid December and loved every minute of it. Lying in bed, gazing at the stars at night, then watching the sunrise over the town of Bisbee and the Mexican mountains in the distance was priceless! The house is simple, quaint, and charmingly decorated. It gives one a real taste of life in this absolutely unique town.
Helen and Tom treated us like family. We were even invited to holiday events with them and they introduced us to their friends and family. We felt so welcome!
Helen provided yummy bakery delicacies, and the refrigerator and cupboards were well stocked with essentials (eggs, butter, jam, wine). When she found out that we like to make smoothies, she bought a blender for the house!
Tom is a talented artist and creates beautiful carved wood pieces that we enjoyed during our stay.
The weather, while we were there, was unusually cold for Bisbee, but, being from a colder climate, we found it quite pleasant and spent a lot of time walking, birding, and sight seeing. We will be frequent return visitors to Bisbee and to the High Road House!
Thank you, Helen and Tom!
