The ONLY place to stay in Bisbee! One bedroom restored miner's cabin.
The king size bed is Incredibly comfortable! The house is set up for two people but not available for a third person or a child. This is something that is not negotiable, sorry.
Please ask the owner or check their rental agreement when booking the property.
Damage and Incidentals
You will be responsible for any damage to the rental property caused by you or your party during your stay.
The mines that employed thousands of people in Bisbee closed their doors in the 1970s and many people had to leave town to find work elsewhere, so houses were abandoned, which made it a prime place for artists and other like minded free thinkers to gravitate towards. Throughout the years the houses have been reclaimed~just like the Sleepy Dog~but there are ruins of stairways and home sites and rock walls and rubble all across town. These things make Bisbee a photographer's paradise and a hiker's dream as there are staircases to climb and old mule trails to follow.
Incredible bird watching is also right outside the Sleepy Dog door. More than 30 species of birds including Mexican Spotted Owls, Great Horned Owels, six types of hummingbirds, Red Cardinals, Vermillion Flycatchers, Lazlu Bunting, Towhees, Mockingvirds, Solitaires, Wrens and Finches have been seen either at the Sleepy Dog itself or with a short day trip of the house.
Bisbee is a walking town, and a people town and a dog town. It's tiny, narrow and sometimes (more often than not) one way streets almost beg a visitor to park their cars and spend their vacation on foot. Although there's lots to see and do close by~Historic Tombstone, Karchner Caverns State Park, the Slaughter Ranch, Cochise Stronghold, the Wonderland of Rocks and Douglas, Arizona just to name a few. But the best thing to do in Bisbee is to relax, rewind, enjoy the quiet, the stars and the amazing fresh air.

Why Tad Miller chose Brewery Gulch
The Sleepy Dog Guest House has a fantastic location in Bisbee--it's on the edge of town yet close enough where a car is not necessary. The house's orientation to the sun means warm, sunny days in the winter which is a real plus for snow birds visiting the area. The layout of the house is convenient and comfortable, small enough to be cozy yet large enough not to feel cramped and is set up for only two people. The two porches add great el fresco opportunities. Sleepy Dog Guest House Cancellation Policy: At the Sleepy Dog we rent the house by advance reservations only. When you reserve the house, we agree to turn away all other requests for the house, guaranteeing to hold it for the dates you requested. Due to the limited number of beds (one), cancellations affect us greatly. We want our policy to be fair for our guests, yet prevent loss of income to our house by cancellations. When situations arise that necessitate a cancellation, we sympathize, however, we adhere to a strict cancellation policy: We cannot be responsible for travel delays, health issues, inclement weather or early departures. Guests are responsible for payment of all nights reserved, regardless of actual arrival or departure date. We will be unable to return any deposit monies without a 30 day notice. There will be no refunds for late arrivals or early departures.
What makes this Cabin unique
Waking up to the sound of birds, the morning sunshine, the view of town, the comfort of an old house, the clawfoot tub, and the rockers on the porch are the best things about the Sleepy Dog. There's also a private little table and chair arrangement on our special viewing point which is a one minute walk out the back gate.
