We had the room called The Lodge... looked just like one. It was comfortable and the best part.. no TV. ( There was one in the main living area). The breakfast was delicious. Mark the owner is terrific. We appreciated his hospitality and restaurant referrals; and at breakfast, we met some pretty nice people from Tucson and California. We recommend the Gurley B&B.
If we were to come back, we may prefer to stay in the main lodge (4 nice units). On the whole, the lodge is such an attractive B&B and, during our stay, we were the only ones staying at Gurley Street Lodge. We chose the bungalow because it had a full kitchen, etc.
For breakfast, we went to the main lodge and Mark served us wonderful breakfasts both days. He is talented and his skill in the kitchen was only exceeded by his hospitality. We felt like he was a dear friend (or part of our extended family) by the time we left (after 2 days).
The bungalow had decibel-breaking air conditioning noise that we really tried to diminish by not to turning it on; think aircraft engines revving up and you get the idea. But the bed was comfortable, the towels were fluffy and white and soft, and the porch offered us an opportunity to sit outside and revel in the monsoon rainfall while reading. It was really special. The kitchen in the bungalow is a full-kitchen. It is a small bungalow but it suited us for 2 days. We compared it to being in Tahoe in a very rustic cabin. We had a nice visit and enjoyed ourselves.
One day for breakfast, Mark made a Spanish potato, egg, onion treat (we do not eat meat) and it was spectacular. Every breakfast began with fruit and yogurt. Our second day, it was scrambled eggs with a generous sprinkling of course ground pepper, and those marvelous corn meal and flour pancakes we will dream about for a long while. Having Mark join us for breakfast was a treat. Mark is such an honest, wysiwyg ("what you see is what you get") kind of a person and he made us feel so comfortable. We are major big fans of Mark.
When we come back, we may prefer to stay in the lodge. And ... you betcha, we will be back!
