El Presidio Bed and Breakfast near Downtown Tucson, AZ

El Presidio Bed and Breakfast Tucson

My husband and I were enchanted to visit the El Presidio Inn, Bed and Breakfast near downtown Tucson in early June. We had decided to share a "staycation" since I'm pretty busy at work, and this way we could get away and relax, while further discovering our own backyard.

It was immediately apparent why this B&B would belong to Trip Advisor's Hall of Fame.  Before we even arrived, we received this lovely email confirmation:  

Dear Rocco and Cara,

Warmest regards,


Patti Toci

And then there's breakfast - the first day we were met with fresh fruit - pineapple, strawberries, kiwi, banana, orange, apple....all fresh, ripe and succulent.  Add to that bacon, juice, eggs with zucchini and sauteed mushrooms, ginger pancakes.....yep, my mouth is watering again already.

Here's a peak at what we got our second day as main breakfast encore:

All decked out on a homespun table with china and teacups and place-mats and....well, I could go on and on.  Perhaps I have.

But here's the thing.
