I was looking on Google Earth for a place right next to the National Park, which was the main reason we went to Tucson. This was so close that we took a walk after breakfast following a track, and were in the park in a few minutes! The room was comfortable but you wouldn't want to spend much time inside...

Read their webpage and the reviews and see if this place is for you - it may or may not be. This was our first time, and we hope to return. Many of the guests we met were repeat visitors. Lots of birders. Maybe that's how to evaluate Crickethead Inn. . . if you are a birder-type or hiking-type or...

Last month was our fifth time vacationing here with wonderful hosts Wayan and Mike. This B and B is for those who find solitude in nature and look for a different cultural experience. The decor is authentic from Indonesia and Bali which gives a solid, decorative atmosphere. By the way, the beds are just perfect for a good night's sleep....

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the little cottage, privately situated away from the main lodge. We had a beatiful room, gorgeous and comfy Idoneisan carved bed, great shower, large main room, heater for the cool evenings, porch to sit on and a view to feast your eyes on. The breakfasts were delicious, the hosts were warm, fun, smart, and...

We chose this B&B for its location and we were not disappointed. It is located on the edge of Saguaro National Park West. Surrounded by wonderful desert views. Shortly after arriving we went for a hike. Walked off the back porch, a short distance duck under a wire fence and you’re in the park. We walked along the saguaro cactus;...

If you are seeking an unusual yet inviting bed and breakfast experience, then this is the place for you! Be prepared for the long, rustic desert lane that leads to the house. Drive slowly and enjoy the desert vistas. Upon arrival, you will be greeted by Wayan and Mike, your hostess and host, who will make your stay so memorable...

This is an unusual and very delightful place to stay. Right on the edge of Saguaro National Park, close to the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum, and surrounded by desert wildlife. Crickethead has great food, wonderful Indonesian decor, friendly and knowledgeable hosts in Wayan and Mike, and a real sense of peace (plus gamelan music - we even got to try...

We had the great good fortune of finding the Crickethead Inn through a Google search while looking for a place to stay near the Saguaro National Park. What a gem! Although easily accessible, once you turn off the road into the long driveway you realize you are entering a special place in a beautiful, peaceful setting. Wayan and Mike are...

We had a great stay, wonderful hospitality and excellent food. The trip up the dirt road sets you up for the quiet low key B&B in an extraordinary setting. The rooms are pleasant and the patios are great. Your hosts are very friendly and hospitable. Not the place for you if you are hi maintenance and want to walk out...

“All the rooms are nice but ask for a room in the guest house instead of the main house. They're a little more private.”
