The Best!

I have stayed with Betty and Harvey every year for the past 6 years when I am in Tucson for my jewelry business. The first year, I stayed because they were the only ones with a vacancy...they had just had a cancellation... I have stayed all future years because Betty and Harvey are the best!!! I look forward to my trip every year!!

A perfect place to see the saguaros

Desert Dove is simply outstanding: a well-planned building conceived as a B&B from the beginning, a real adobe construction, immersed in the natural beauty of the area, very close to Saguaro National Park East. The hospitality was absolutely charming and the breakfast delicious. Top rating.

A peaceful desert retreat

This wonderfully managed B & B is on the eastern edge of Tucson, within a quarter mile of the Saguaro National Forest. There are only two rooms...both lovely. Ours overlooked the garden that has been lovingly nurtured by Betty and Harvey, the innkeepers. It is home to a wide array of birds and mammals. Sitting on the shaded patio with the morning coffee is alone worth the price. But, in addition, you get Betty's wonderful and varied breakfasts which manage to be healthful, fulfilling, and great tasting. Betty and Harvey are attentive to every detail. The result is a place that is much more than a place to sleep and have breakfast, it was definitely an important part of our vacation for which we are very grateful. I cannot single out one "best" aspect because the Desert Dove was excellent in so many ways. As for the least good aspect, I would say its location on the eastern fringe of Tucson was less convenient to the attractions on the Western edge and Tucson is a large and sprawling city that requires a LOT of driving around. We drove, but we also took advantage of the proximity to the Eastern section of the Saguaro National Forest and we took our time in the morning and late in the day to watch the birds, enjoy the Spa, and truly relax.

A Little Piece of Paradise

Betty and Harvey are the ultimate hosts sharing their lovely private house in a serene setting. The 2 immaculate guests rooms are beautifully decorated with antiques, breakfast is a healthful delicious treat and their gorgeous backyard is an oasis. We cannot wait to return!

Lovely and Private

The Desert Dove was a wonderful inn. The decor was cozy and the view was magnificent. Our hosts were extremely helpful as well as being able to run their inn with ease and style. The proximity to the Saguero National Park, walking distance, made the secluded location even more special. We loved sitting in the spa at night and watching the stars.
