Our Grounds

Yearning for a quiet, peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life?

Hacienda del Desierto Bed and Breakfast offers a taste of old Mexico in the foothills of the Rincon Mountains next to Saguaro National Park, yet only 25 minutes from historic Tucson and the University of Arizona. Located on 16 secluded acres, the hacienda inn is built around an interior courtyard surrounded by lush desert vegetation.

Just step outside your room to begin your desert experience:

  • Sip a drink under a mesquite tree at the trailhead of our inn’s private nature trail. Then walk the trail using our guide booklet to better appreciate the enchanting Sonoran desert.
  • Sit by desert ponds frequented by wildlife, fountains at which birds bathe, or by patio or courtyard gardens.
  • Relax in one of our jetted hydrotherapy spas, especially after dark when the stars fill the sky, or just at sunset to experience a spectacular sunset.
  • Curl up on a couch, swing, or chaise lounge with a good book on one of our porches.

David and Rosemary grew up in Tucson and are extremely knowledgeable about the desert flora and fauna. Both love to share a wealth of regional history plus maps for sightseeing. If you need ideas on things to do or places to go, David will pull out his “bottomless box” of suggestions and brochures for you.

Enjoy the over 50 different varieties of birds that have been identified by avid birders, our very own herd of javalinas (peccary), and our one outside cat (She is a bit wild so won’t bother you).
