We made last minute plans to spend a few days in southern Arizona. Saw this place on the Internet and based on the previous reviews it sounded like a perfect place for us. Then driving back on the dirt road, with ruts, and crossing creeks, in the middle of nowhere we wondered what we had gotten into. When we we...

Suggestion: If you are flying in and renting a car, spend the extra money for a four-wheel. Arriving in daylight is preferable for your first arrival. This B & B is a drive but it is well worth it. The two rooms are in a building made of strawbales and gunnite spray. Very fascinating history of its building. It is...

Beautiful-the natural environment, the accommodations, the people-a wonderful retreat. If you love nature, and beauty this is the place for you. Cochise Stronghold is a magical place - you can choose to be involved with a warm, wonderful community or retreat into solitude and quiet. Of all the years my husband and I have traveled, of all the B&B's we...

We are so grateful to former trip advisor reviewers for their honest reviews because we had just as wonderful an experience as others. It was a 20 minute ride on an unpaved and sometimes really bumpy road that took us into the Cochise Stronghold. This place is a quarter of a mile short of the campground and the setting is...

Comfortable, clean, with great breakfasts, healthy and big! We stayed in the Agave suite which had its own private back patio, a well organized and supplied kitchenette and a spacious welcoming room in which to sit, eat and sleep. Nancy is a smart imaginative cook, obviously interested in tasty nutrition. The owners, Nancy and John, couldn't have been more helpful,...

The owners were extremely helpful and the area was absolutely beautiful. I really had a great time relaxing and spending time in nature. My friend and I really needed a weekend of R&R and this B&B was better than we had imagined. I will definitely recommend this location!

This is an unique and wonderful experience that cannot be duplicated anywhere. Even though this is a wilderness type experience, John and Nancy treat you like royalty.

The Cochise Stronghold B&B offers a room called the Agave Suite. This is a great place to stay. It has a front entrance with sitting places and a rear entrance with bird feeders and more outdoor sitting. We had all our meals out on the back patio and it was a delightful experience.

We spent our wedding anniversary at the B&B and we're very pleased with the accommodations and the breakfast and dinner were outstanding...especially the home made Turkey sausage, and giant pan of delicious cornbread. We stayed at the B&B in 2007 and returned again for another outstanding visit. The room we stayed in was very quiet and we were able to...
