Old Fashioned Christmas

Christmas at Desert Dove an Inn-spiration

An Old Fashioned Christmas

Father Time greets you as you enter the Inn.  Betty’s creation, hand made from old quilt pieces.
In the great room stands a 10 ft. Christmas tree adorned with more than 2000 lights decorated with red beaded apples, white poinsettias, white pearl grape clusters, white doves, red cardinals and silver balls of garland. It’s not hard to like Christmas trees. They’re pretty. They sparkle.

In the guest entry hall a Western Cowboy Santa along with his helpful Elves greets guests coming and going!

At our Desert Dove Bed and Breakfast, we like to use our collectibles along with Christmas decorations, giving the Inn a very homespun feel. The antique toys and dolls we have in our collection add to the magic and fun of the season.

The antique sideboard, a treasure from Betty’s grandmother, has seen many a Christmas.

The parlor has a circa 1910 upright piano for those who wish to play some Christmas music. “I’m dreaming of a white Christmas with every Christmas card I write ……..”
Although Tucson traditionally would not have a white Christmas, it has even snowed on a few.  If you wish for some snow you only have to drive 45 minutes to Mt. Lemmon. The Catalina Mountains tops are white with snow.

On the antique cookstove simmers the teapot ready for hot chocolate or spice tea. Home made treats are always available. Plan a romantic getaway this Holiday Season with a stay at Desert Dove Bed & Breakfast.

Come fly away! Enjoy! Relax! and Reminisce!
