About Kate Bishop

Kate and Grady's home has always been a social center for artists, students and travelers. When they moved to Bisbee from California, they lived in Orion House while Grady built their new home in the adjacent lot. Then it seemed natural to open Orion House for guests. They have traveled extensively, and know what it takes to make you feel welcome and comfortable.

They have recently returned from one year of travel in Southeast Asia and South America.

Grady is a retired building contractor who teaches furniture-making to women in transition. Kate is an artist/clairvoyant medium. The Orion House is decorated with artwork acquired in Europe, Central and South America, the Caribbean and Asia.

Kate Bishop purchased this house in 2005

Why Kate Bishop chose Arizona

They bought this property after visiting Bisbee for a weekend and falling in love with the area. The cozy window seat alcove in the kitchen won Kate's heart. She has spent hours reading, relaxing and bird watching there. The location on High Road is ideal for its feeling of peaceful seclusion within easy walking distance from downtown, the magnificent views, wonderful neighbors, spacious house, garden and decks.

What makes this house unique

It is comfortable for a single person, but can sleep up to eight. The layout and well-equipped kitchen and barbecue make it a great place to host a party, seminar, or other group activity. The fenced yard is dog-friendly.

A beautiful house perfectly situated to allow a great view of Bisbee.

  • 5 of 5

The Orion House is very well maintained with everything you need for an overnight stay or an extended one. It has a beautiful garden outside, a deck with a great View and a place to be anytime of the day or season. I have stayed there several times and plan on visiting many more times in the future.

Another Perfect Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at the Orion house, as we absolutely love it!! My husband and I take many weekend getaways to Bisbee, and the Orion house is by far our favorite place to stay. It's warm, welcoming, relaxing (best patio!!), perfect location and fits the bill in every way possible. Thanks for another wonderful weekend!

Ever so peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We were met by our host Kate who showed us around the house. The house has everything you need plus more, for your stay. The house is very well maintained and clean. The best part was spending time on the front porch watching the birds. I genuinely and whole heartily recommend staying at the Orion house. We will definitely stay again!

We have been to Bisbee,Orion house 4 years in a row,through the winter months. Each year, extending our visit. Kate and Grady made our visits a positive experience. Much like a retreat, it brought out our artistic and creative side. The Caribbean colors and natural light the cottage brings in just adds to the ambiance. The mountain views are dramatic, as well as the surrounding hillsides. High rd. neighbors are friendly and open. We found everything we needed there,with a fenced in yard for our pet.

The town is full of energy, music; places to browse art, eating establishments and museums. It has truly been our home away! Hiking trails are nearby, and walking into town is a great way to exercise and photograph the quirky fences,doors and mosaic walls that make this town unique!
