A romantic getaway near one of the state’s most spectacular desert-wilderness areas, this B&B is located 60 miles north of Tucson on Aravaipa Creek. The inn is 7 miles from the highway, 3 of those miles up a well-maintained dirt road and then across a stream (high-clearance vehicles recommended), so it’s a long way to a restaurant. Consequently, the inn provides all meals for $55 per person Wednesday through Saturday (and can make arrangements for meals the other days). Guests entertain themselves hiking in the Aravaipa Canyon Wilderness, bird-watching, and cooling off in the creek. The casitas are eclectically decorated in a mix of folk art and rustic Mexican furnishings, with tile floors, stone-walled showers, and shady verandas. For a romantic weekend or a vigorous vacation, this inn makes an ideal base. The innkeepers also rent out a three-bedroom house that sleeps up to six people.
