about our inn

Arizona Highways August Edition 2019

In the late-afternoon sun, Tubac Country Inn glows like butterscotch, making a rich background for the chile ristras hung along its facade and the French doors painted the vibrant blue of Mexican tile.

Along the wash that fronts the long wooden porch, mesquite trees cast speckled shade on blue agaves and towering prickly pear cactuses. Goldfinches hop from branch to branch while the sun makes pinpricks of light on the trees' spindly leaves, illuminating the spines of golden barrel cactuses as pale and yellow as beaten egg yolks. Near the outdoor fireplace, a miniature St. Francis maintains a silent vigil.

Despite being within walking distance of Tubac's shops and restaurants, the setting is remarkably tranquil, the soft burble of a fountain providing a backdrop to the mournful hoo-hoo-hoo of doves and the distant horn of a passing train.

Your Host . . .

Hello Current & Future Guests,

I moved to Tubac over a decade ago to work with family who have fantastic, longtime shops in the village  (Tubac Old World Imports aka "The Rug Shop" and The Wild Rose greeting card & gifts).  Tubac immediately felt like home with the quiet streets, unforgettable sunsets, cottonwood trees, and mountain views. Guests and their comfort are my priority, however, when not at the Inn, I am spending time with my four legged companions or at one of the family shops lending a hand.

I'd love to provide any local tips to help you fall in love with Tubac as I, and so many others have.   This Inn holds a very special place in my heart and I hope to help make your memories of Tubac just as special.  

A fun local saying when asked how to pronounce Tubac, "One step forward - Tubac". 

Always in appreciation - Reagen

Today, the property includes five guest rooms and operates like a boutique hotel, each room stocked with Keurig pod coffees, a microwave and a refrigerator, although an 1,100-square-foot suite includes a full kitchen.

The rooms are spacious and immaculate, decorated with an unerring eye, with white linens and pale plaster walls accented with natural wood shelves, gourds and baskets.

Silk flowers, bright cushions and fabrics patterned with Southwestern designs punctuate the rooms with bold colors, complementing the work of artists such as Navajo painter R.C. Gorman and Wisconsin artist Ross Stefan, who spent four years in Tubac in the 1950s.  All these elements blend flawlessly, making Tubac Inn a feast for the eyes and one of Southern Arizona's sweetest retreats.
