About Ed Rosko

I first visited Bisbee in 2000 from New York City. It is an immensely charming place. I visited often and in 2010 I answered its call moved to this part of Arizona.

Everyone has a story as to how they got here. Most are quite amazing. If you get a chance to strike up a conversation with one of the 'locals' ask 'em,--you may learn something and at least you will be very entertained!

Ed Rosko purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Ed Rosko chose Arizona

This is an amazing property. Built by an artist, first, as her studio and with an addition of a sleeping loft in 2008, it became her home. The house has very unique spaces, an incredible view from the wall of windows that open to a small deck.

The area the home sits in is actually carved out of the stone and mountain that surround the house.

When I purchased the property I told the previous owner that in my eyes the home is a piece of art all by itself. She said. 'You get it..you understand this house!'

So, if you enjoy the beauty in architecture, nature and art (the house is full of it), you will enjoy your stay at the BLUE HOUSE!

What makes this cottage unique

Deck that overlooks the town. Close to everything, yet secluded too. New furnishings through out. Art, books, vintage vinyl and record player.

It was a girls weekend out. We happened to hit Bisbee on a couple of the coldest days they've had in a long time. We didn't care, as we were there to chill out & just relax. We turned the heat up & made use of the electric fireplace that warmed up the room sufficiently. Great location...close enough for shopping but far enough away to be a quiet & restful place. We enjoyed the High Desert Market for a light dinner that we took back to the cottage, along with cheeses, olives, fruit & other munches...to go along with our wine. We had dinner at Contessa's Cantina (right across the street) which was a perfect ending for the last night. Highly recommend them. Great atmosphere, with a real wood fire going & the food was superb. All in all, it couldn't have been nicer. Perfect getaway.

Great little house, great location

  • 4 of 5

Ed's house is wonderfully located a short walk to town and super close to the High Desert Market and Screaming Banshee pizza. He was easy to communicate with and available by phone or text for questions. As others have noted, parking was easy a block away on the main street. The house was cozy and comfortable with lots of good heaters to keep warm in the winter. All the windows and the deck really made the space feel open and airy. The architecture, if that's your thing, is pretty cool for the tiny footprint that the house sits on against the mountain. Ed's art choices were fun and quirky and perfect for Bisbee. The board games were fun too.

The kitchen had plenty of pots, pans, and basics to cook in. The bathroom was roomy, although not as updated as the rest of the home. The Queen sized bed upstairs in the loft was comfortable.

We've been to Bisbee many times and have stayed in a variety of homes. Would definitely recommend Ed's place and we'd happily stay here again next time.

Cozy bungalow and great location!

  • 5 of 5

You'll feel the stress melt away upon entering Bluehouse! From the porch that provides a wonderful view to the comfortable bedroom, every touch is special. Open, airy and wonderfully decorated. Breakfast is just a step away at High Desert Market. Highly recommend!

Nice little house in a great location

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Blue House. The location in Old Bisbee was extremely convenient, and the house was clean, well stocked, and nicely decorated. Overall, it was a good value for the price and I would not hesitate to stay again or recommend it to others.

The only down sides were difficulty parking, and the lack of internet access. There is a driveway, but Ed let us know before we arrived that rocks had been falling down from the property up the hill, so it would not be a wise place to park except when unloading the car. That was clearly the case, so we found other parking up the hill, or down at the bottom... but it was something of a hassle. The lack of wifi was clearly indicated in the description of the house, but it would have been good to have, since we were visiting for work.

Anyway, thanks for a nice visit!

Convenient, Cute & Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Bluehouse. The walk to downtown was shorter than we thought it would be, and we liked staying in a different part of town than we have on previous visits. The house is very comfortable and is filled with great, original art. We loved sitting on the balcony in the mornings and evenings. Having High Desert Market right down the street was a plus for starting the day out right. Communication with the owner was fast and easy. Would definitely come back and recommend to friends.

High Desert Market

Location, location, location! The BLUE HOUSE has one of the best locations in town. Close to all of the fun attractions but secluded enough to offer relaxation at the end of the day.

High Desert Market is a short walk from your door. They offer amazing meals, gourmet cheese, fresh vegetabes and fruits, wine, beer and awesome smoothies!

Screaming Banshee Pizza is also a local favorite and is ideal for brickoven pies and a late drink.

Even more:

Shopping, restaurants, art, music and theater venues are a short walk from the BLUE HOUSE. If you're looking to learn a little more about Bisbee, museums and guided tours are available too!

Bisbee is a very active town, events happen almost every weekend. Posters announcing what's new can be found all over the city or check the visitor's center downtown. Explorers welcome!
