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.
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!
What a great find! The High Road House is perfect for the couple who wants to be right in the heart of Old-Bisbee but have a private space to call their own. We spent a relaxed weekend here in August and couldn’t have asked for more. A great location with some of the best views in town (the pictures are accurate) and all the comfort you’d ever need. You can spend hours sitting in the chairs by the windows watching the folks downtown or enjoying a storm moving it’s way through town. Beautiful. But honestly, the best part are the hosts. Tom and Helen made sure everything was right and are fun people to get to know. Great to talk to but never intrusive. We look forward to returning soon.
The place was wonderful! Great views indeed. It is at the top of the hill so a great view of Bisbee. Helen was wonderful. New mattress as well! I arrived late at night and it was well lit to find. Bisbee is a great place to visit. There was coffee in the house for the next morning along with a few items for breakfast. An easy walk down in to town however remember you are at the top of the hill so walking up is a good bit of exercise. Well worth it. I went to Sedona for a few days after and wished so many times I had just stayed in the little house in Bisbee.
We recently spent a month travelling around the south-west states. The highlight of which was 4 wonderful days spent at High Road House. We loved it from the moment we arrived, and felt instantly at home.
We have travelled for many years and rented many places, but never have we been made to feel so welcome. Never have we been so reluctant to leave.
The Town, the house, the owners, all exceeded our expectations.
Now back in England we treasure the memories of our time there and are so grateful we selected High Road House.
