We were greeted by Mike and Angie while we were outside snapping pictures of their lovely home. We were given a warm welcome and grand tour. When I mentioned that I would like hot water, Angie had it ready immediately. We had a great nights sleep and the following morning a great breakfast and lots of information about the area....

Large gourmet breakfast. Solitude and very friendly host's. The accommodations were roomy and exceptional. We highly recommend Down By The River Bed And Breakfast. Very close to several attractions. Close to river, wildlife and a wide variety of birds.

Can't tell you how much we are missing your wonderful breakfasts and evening treats Mike & Angie! Sure doesn't take long to become completely spoiled when you pick such a great place to stay. Still can't get over the beautiful furniture, decorations and antiques you have throughout the B&B. I think a person needs a longer stay here just to...

I chose this B & B from the great pictures on their website. I stay pretty exclusively in B & B's when I travel, so I've come to understand that the pictures are usually a bit better than the reality. But this place was such a pleasant surprise. The rooms are so spacious and the attention to detail in the...

I had the pleasure of staying here during the 2014 spring bird migration. After visiting nearby Kartchner Caverns [also wonderful] we arrived to a little oasis out in the middle of nowhere. The fact that we had to drive a bit on a gravel road made it all the better to enjoy this secluded jewel. Decorating is lots of fun...
