We spent 2 nights here. The hosts were very welcoming, Julie provided baking both days. The accommodation was very comfortable. The idea of providing food for breakfast was great as it gave us flexibility on when we ate. Julie even lent us her tea kettle when she discovered I was a tea drinker. It was so much nicer to make...

Julie Battiste is a friendly, welcoming hostess, always ready to help. Tony was away while we were there, but Julie was super helpful when I asked her about places to bird. She suggested Fort Huachuca and called Tony for details. She then put me on the phone with him to get directions for exact locations within Fort Huachuca that he... More

We recently made a Mother’s Day trip to Battiste’s, which we had wanted to do for awhile, and it did not disappoint. Nestled in the Huachuca Mountains of southern Arizona, the specialty of the house is the Elf Owl, although the species abound, since it sits in a major migratory path. We saw 30 different species in 2 days time.... More

My wife & I and 2 friends spent 3 days at Tony & Julie's place. Firstly the accommodation is great, up the hill off the highway so it is quiet but easy to find and convenient for getting places. There is a large separate casita with a queen bed and couch that converts to beds. It would be OK for... More

What a fantastic place to stay while bird watching in Arizona. Tony and Julie could not have been more welcoming for the entire stay. You feel like you are at home with them. The two bedroom in-house unit was absolutely perfect for so many uses. The kitchenette with fridge was great and a nice small private den for relaxing at... More

My family of five spent a week at Battiste's B B & B. The accommodations were very comfortable but it is the hosts and birds that truly make this place one of a kind. I felt like I was in an aviary when sitting in their back yard. So many species of birds! What a treat it was to see... More

Tony and Julie were extremely gracious hosts. The accommodations were more than adequate with two baths, kitchenette, two bedrooms, TV area and easy access to washer and dryer.

This was our first stay at BB&B (bed&breakfast&birds) and we hope to return someday. What a lovely set-up for birders. Tony welcomed us upon our arrival and gave us a tour of our accomodations and the beautiful water features and bird feeders that attract so many birds. I spent a fantastic day photographing the birds from different sitting areas using... More
