Feathered Fascination


For those interested in southeast Arizona birding, Casa de San Pedro is centrally located, adjacent to the San Pedro Riparian National Conservation Area and is situated on 10 acres bordering the San Pedro River. The San Pedro River is considered one of the largest and most critical avian migratory corridors remaining in the western United States. The San Pedro Riparian National Conservation Area provides habitat for over 100 species of breeding birds, and provides water food and shelter for another 250 species of migratory and resident birds. In addition, the river supports one of the largest cottonwood-willow forest canopies remaining in Arizona and is one of the last free-flowing rivers in the Southwest. For more information on birding, please visit our birding guide, which will guide you to a successful birding adventure.

Learn & Discover

Historical Sites

Scenic mountain and riparian hiking and cycling trails are plentiful. In addition to enjoying the natural wonders of Southeastern Arizona you will also want to learn about its remarkable history. Many of our guests enjoy visiting Southeast Arizona’s many historical sites. This is where the old west still lives; visitors feel like they are reliving history through the remains of Old West ghost and mining towns. Geronimo, Cochise and the gun fight at the OK Corral all happened here. Learn about former area inhabitants and historical events by visiting Coronado National Monument, Fort Huachuca, The Courthouse in Tombstone, and The Mining Museum & Mine Tour in Bisbee.

Hit the Trails


The Sky Islands of Southeastern Arizona create some of the most diverse hiking in our state. Where else can you take a hike in a deep canyon hidden from the sun and journey to the 9,500 foot summit of Miller Peak, with a view of the Mexican interior as far as you can see. Then come home to the comfort and peace of our inn. Hiking trails in the Huachuca Mountains offer great vistas, diverse fauna and flora and great exercise. Enjoy our Arizona Hiking Trails in Sierra Vista. If you prefer a less strenuous hike, you can walk in the shade of the cottonwood trees along the San Pedro River, which represents the most extensive healthy riparian ecosystem remaining in the desert Southwest. This area has been designated by the Nature Conservancy as one of the “Last Great Places”. It provides habitat to hundreds of different species of birds and animals.

Ride Adventure


Let us introduce you to over twenty miles of GREAT trail biking and vistas from our back door along the San Pedro River, over the Hereford Bridge to the old Hereford Town site and Quarry. Stop for a picnic on the river and enjoy the mindfulness of a moment to commune with Nature. Then reluctantly return to Casa with stories to tell about all the beautiful scenery and wildlife you observed. If your idea of a great bike excursion is to travel about 40 miles over fairly easy terrain, ride from the Casa to Bisbee. If you want a longer ride with more diverse elevations, take a trip to Tombstone. You’ll travel about 70 miles through some flat lands, canyons and mountains. If you’d like a challenging ride on an unimproved county road, take off through the Coronado National Memorial to Parker Canyon Lake. Bring your own bikes. Or, there are bike shops in Sierra Vista that can rent road or trail bikes - you can call ahead and give them your order and they will pre-fit you to a bike that is right for you and for the type of rides you want. The bike shops also have area biking maps available.
