Desert Dove has a wonderful location, wonderful hosts, and wonderful food. With only two rooms for rent, Betty can prepare a great variety of breakfasts while Harvey serves as waiter and pours the coffee. The location couldn't be better - utterly quiet with beautiful desert surrounding it - on the east side of Tucson only a short distance from the...

I really enjoyed staying at this charming B & B. Betty and Harvey are the consummate hosts, and their antique toy collection is amazing. Their adobe abode is well-situated just outside Saguaro NP East. The breakfasts were beautifully presented and delicious. I highly recommend this B & B!

Betty and Harvey were very sweet and provided perfect hospitality. What a special place! They have wonderful attention to detail: beautiful antiques, exceptional breakfast, yummy snacks, amazing setting, relaxing atmosphere, etc. I just can't say enough about this special B & B.

Quaint B&B with delightful innkeepers and good location near Saguaro national park. The breakfasts were delicious and Betty kindly accommodated my vegan husband. The room was comfortable. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a quiet get away.

We booked a room in late February and enjoyed the hospitality and were warmly greeted by Betty and Harvey, the owners. Great suggestions for the surrounding area, their property is well maintained and can be enjoyed both morning and evening in their beautiful garden. Betty provided a delicious breakfast and the company of the other guests made for a lively...
