Hidden Oasis

(A Bed & Breakfast Community)

1867 Johnson Road,  Dragoon, AZ  85609

678-232-8717          hiddenoasisbandb.com

Lays cozily nestled amongst the Dragoon Mountains, approximately 45 minutes east of Tucson Arizona, and 2 hours 30 minutes from Phoenix Arizona airport. With an elevation of 4700 feet, the air is fresh and breezy, and the views are spectacular, with mountains peaks in all directions. Located under five minutes from Interstate 10 in historic Cochise County, the grounds have a variety of mature trees and shrubs, seasonal flowers and gardens, and two decorative ponds, creating a true hidden paradise.

In addition to the Main House, an Adobe structure with a charismatic medieval look & feel, the resort boasts 4 unique guest Casitas. The first, located under a canopy of trees a short distance behind the main house, has two bedrooms, full kitchen, and bath.  The second and third each have one bedroom, kitchenette, and full bath. These Casitas share a covered patio with awesome mountain views. Due to popular demand, we added a fourth Casita-a spacious one bed, one bath with a sleeper sofa, and kitchenette.

Also on the property is a Chapel originally dating back to the 1890’s.  Over the years many couples have taken advantage of the setting to create a one of a kind marriage ceremony. A tree house overlooks the property, along with other rustic buildings. We added a Labyrinth to add to your Meditation experience.

Hiking, Cycling, Horseback riding, Vineyards, Wine tastings (we're in the heart of Arizona Wine Country), Museums, Sightseeing, Bird Watching (we're ideally located between the San Pedro Riparian National Conservation Area and the Willcox Playa), Fishing, and more are all to be found in close proximity.  Only 2 miles away is an old time saloon, open on Saturday nights.   Of course, you may simply choose to hang out, playing croquet or putt-putt, ping-pong, pitching horse shoes, or simply resting and relaxing while remaining on the property, lounging near the pond, in the hot tub, or any of the several comfy sitting areas, and escape from reality for a while.

At Hidden Oasis Bed & Breakfast our hope is that you’ll find this hideaway retreat one of the most "Uniquely Peaceful” places you’ve ever visited.

- See you soon!!!

Hidden Oasis is a Pet Friendly Establishment.

Reminder: For those living in the Phoenix and Tucson Areas-  At HIDDEN OASIS it is always 10 to 20 degrees cooler here and always with a breeze!!! Plan a getaway anytime to escape the heat...

Michelle   February 2021 

Beautiful views, clean, private, peaceful space. Lots to enjoy for a weekend getaway and still remain safe. Hike, walk, enjoy meditation. The owners are super nice and friendly. A great place to stay.

Lukasz   February 2021

Great place to stay if you're rock climbing in Cochise. Not too far from either east or west side.

Melissa   February 2021 

Maxine's orange casita in Dragoon, AZ was such a lovely place to stay for our hiking adventures at Chiricahua National Monument. The property was so quirky and fun. Our casita had all of the amenities that we needed and wanted. When we needed a couple extra things, Chad was very nice to bring them right over to us. We loved our stay and would absolutely come back again.

Laura   February 2021 

Maxine place is cozy and quiet. She and Chad are very friendly. They have everything you need to make yourself at home.

Charles   January 2021

I spent two nights in one of the casitas and really enjoyed my stay. The grounds are really cool with gardens, fountains, artifacts and other interesting spaces. I highly recommend staying here if you are in the area.

Alex   January 2021 

Maxine has done an amazing job with this place. Will definitely be coming back!

Theresa   January 2021 

Great little oasis. Just as described. A bit more charming than it looks from the pictures.

Kelly S.   January 2021                                                               

Very Nice and Clean.  Owners are very nice and helpful.  Will be going back again.

Anand   January 2021 

This location is really special. I was mainly looking for an affordable place to just drop my stuff off and then spend my time exploring the Chiricahuas and other wilderness areas. In the end, I genuinely looked forward to coming back each day to enjoy my room and all that their grounds have to offer (chicken coop, garden, bird watching, stunning views, starry skies, solitude, etc.) Max & Chad are wonderful hosts and recommend them to anyone.

Greg  January 2021

Max and Chad are extremely kind generous. They made our stay even better. We both enjoyed the grounds and the casita was perfect. The kitchen was just right to cook all our meals and the bed was super comfy. Max's suggestions for wineries were superb. And Chad filled us in on the Rattlesnake Ranch nearby while feeding the chickens. You can't beat their hospitality!

Carlos    December 2020 

My wife and I Loved the space, we did yoga at the chapel/temple, played putt-putt, took a meditation walk on the labyrinth, and found out space perfect for a quiet and comfortable stay after full days of climbing at Cochise

Kristopher    December 2020

We had a super wonderful stay at at the Hidden Oasis B&B, Maxine and Chad were so kind and welcoming! The place is super cute, it's a funky, artsy, kitschy, spot. It's not fancy, but it was very clean, comfortable, and had everything we were looking for, it was worth every penny for what we got. I would stay there again in a second and recommend it to friends. We were in the area to go hike and explore the Chiricahua National Monument (which was amazing), but there are some super fun wineries around the area too! We were also there during mid-Covid times, and their attention to cleanliness, spacing between other casita guests and overall attention to being clean and safe made us very comfortable to be there. Thanks Maxine and Chad!!

Amy    December 2020

This is a very unique place to stay. There are many places to explore on the property and it is very relaxing. The hosts are very friendly and fun to visit with. We had a relaxing time.

Shelley    December 2020

Maxine was a wonderful host! Definitely would stay here again if we are in the area. Everything was very clean, and extra precautions were taken due to Covid-19.

Nicki    December 2020

This is a comfy and colorful place to stay and Maxine is extremely kind and accommodating! The bed is very comfortable and the place warms up nicely with the heater when it’s freezing outside. I recommend bringing slippers. Bring some groceries too since there are no restaurants or shopping nearby. We went to Chiricahua National Monument for the day, which is about an hour on back roads. Awesome park!

Gretchen    December 2020 

This is a fun kitchy stay in a lovely rural area. Max was a gracious host who is committed to guests having

Zach    November 2020 

Staying here was such a treat! the property is absolutely cute, beautiful, fun and nestled in such a gorgeous area! Maxine is an incredible host! Her and her husband are easily the kindest I've had since using airbnb providing Camille and I outstanding hospitality. The "Hidden Oasis" definitely holds true to its name and I would love to stay here again sometime. I'd highly recommend to anyone looking for a beautiful and exciting place to stay in the area!

Joanna    November 2020

A relaxing stay in a clean, comfortable place. Would definitely stay again!

Sara    September 2020 

The Oasis is a welcoming, safe and colorful space to relax and watch the stars, sip your coffee and stare at the mountains, as well as a great starting point for day trips to the many hiking areas nearby. The cottage was sparkling clean, the bed was very comfortable, the decor absolutely lovely. It’s thoughtfully put together, many amenities. The outside sitting area by this specific cottage was tucked away and pretty private, with a good view of the mountains. I’m a light sleeper but the nearby train did not wake me up, probably because it doesn’t sound the horn when passing. On the grounds there are a pond, a garden, a little “museum” and other lovely spaces created by the host to provide for relaxation and socialization, if you wish. Lots of room to socially distance. There is a gated main entrance but I never felt unsafe. In fact, I left my bicycle on the back of my truck all night. Maxine is a fantastic host. She goes out of her way to help you but never imposes. Talking to her feels like a hug from a dear friend. I would make another trip to the area just to stay at the Oasis and chat with Maxine!

Kevin    September 2020

Fantastic location, tranquil, and truly relaxing. I will return to this spot !

Rick   August 2020

Very nice place.

Lori    February 2020

Maxine's place was perfect for our 3 day stay. We hiked the Chiracauhua National Monument and Fort Bowie which we highly recommend. We appreciated the comfy beds and hot shower with great water pressure after a long day of hiking. Dragoon is small but the Amerind Museum and art gallery were both top notch and time well spent. Do check out the picnic area behind the museum. More fantastic landscape to explore there. Communication was quick, check in and out, easy. Maxine and Chad were warm welcoming and a pleasure to meet.

Robert    February 2020

Be prepared to enjoy yourselves! The places were very clean and comfortable.

Corey    February 2020

What a wonderful place. Everything was perfect about the trip. The grounds are well kept and full of fun touches. Our casita was cozy and nicely appointed. Above all, the hospitality was top notch. We had a wonderful cocktail hour (they had a fully stocked bar) with the hosts and other guests. Breakfast was great. This is really a great place. I highly recommend.

Geir   January 2020

Very kind people and thoughtful hosts!

April   January 2020

Maxine and Chad are warm and welcoming hosts. They are thoughtful and respectful, and I enjoyed meeting them on their fun and unique property. The communication between us was quick and courteous, and they helped me to feel confident about my stay. I am an individual who relies on using a wheelchair and stayed alone and felt very comfortable. The casita I stayed in was roomy and perfect for my needs. I planned on observing silence during my stay, and my little casita was positioned in a way that I felt as if I had my own private space away from the others, which made for a perfect setting for a silent retreat. The train was a little off-putting at first, but like most things, you get used to it and eventually you don’t notice it all. I would most definitely stay again and would recommend it to others.

Linda    January 2020

This is a true gem not to be missed! Great Casita’s and grounds. And the hosts are wonderful. Located in a beautiful remote area of Arizona. Only an hour from Chiricahua National Monument. We would stay again if we were in the area.

My wife and I have been staying at hotels and non-owner-occupied Airbnb's a lot lately, but for this trip we decided to try a B&B for the first time in years--and are we glad we did! Max and Chad were wonderful hosts, and they made us feel at home right away. The cottage was very cute and clean, with plenty of room for the three of us (our adult daughter tagged along for the weekend). We appreciated the many homey, artistic touches found in every room. The breakfasts were low-key but very tasty. Every day we ate out on the beautiful, sun-drenched patio next to the main house, which gave us an excellent opportunity to get to know our hosts and the other guests better--one of the best reasons for staying at a real B&B. The grounds themselves are very peaceful and relaxing, with several small ponds and water features and a colorful variety of flowers and other Southwestern plants. The B&B's location makes it an excellent base for exploring southeastern Arizona, including Kartchner Caverns, the Chiricahua Mountains and Willcox wine country. At night, after a busy day of hiking or sightseeing, we enjoyed soaking in the inflatable hot tub just outside our cottage (it's shared by all of the cottages but no one else used it while we were there). I guess my only complaint is that the property is very close to a Union Pacific freight line and the trains come through a lot. But the nearby crossing is a quiet zone so they aren't allowed to blow their whistles there. After the first night, we really didn't notice the trains at all. The three of us thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Max and Chad's and we will definitely book the place again whenever we're in the area.

A wonderful, eclectic bed n breakfast with a friendly host. We reserved the 2 bedroom casita with one bathroom, which had plenty of room for the two of us. It also had a lovely porch in the front and back so we could sit, talk and just hang out in total privacy. We stayed here for a two night visit so we could be within a short driving distance to Benson, Az, where we visited Kartchner Caverns. Chad, Maxine’s husband, (Maxine was out of the country) came out to greet us as soon as we arrived. He was so conscientious, making sure we had enough towels and confirmed what time we wanted breakfast. But, the #1 attraction is that the property is a feast for the eyes. It is unique, relaxing and very comfortable. It sits on about an acre and has lots of trees, flowers, ponds of rustling water, figurines, some colorful and imaginative objects d’art, kitschy signs, country western tools and symbols, chickens and an international world of art and home, surrounded by the amazing scenery of the Dragoon Mountains! And yes the Caverns were also a #1. There are several casitas to choose from, or you can rent one or more for a family trip. Staying here made our trip so much more enjoyable. I highly recommend it!

Amanda     March 2019

Absolutely charming cottage. Quiet setting and an absolute bright spot in the Cochise County desert of southern Arizona. If you want a non-corporate type of accommodation, this is it!

Paige   February 2019

I couldn’t imagine a better place to stay. The mountains are gorgeous, the casita is super cute and comfortable, and the whole atmosphere is welcoming and relaxing. What an all around wonderful experience. Thanks Max and Chad!

Betsy     December 2018

Fun and funky with beautiful surroundings. A great place to use as a home base as you explore the area. Very clean with gracious and hospitable hosts. Have fun!

Terrence    November 2018

Max and Chad are wonderful hosts that treat you more like family than guests. The casita we stayed in was very clean and comfortable. There were three heaters that kept us nice and warm, and the bed was especially cozy with soft linens and a heavy comforter. This was a 5-star experience for us and recommend you stay there!

Johnmark And Marcia   October 2018

What a lovely place to stay, off the beaten path. Max and Chad are the most gracious of hosts, and their hospitality is the best. Very fun and relaxing. We enjoyed our stay, and spending time with them. We definitely recommend their "little piece of heaven".

Meredith    March 2018 

Maxine's is a wonderful host, a great communicator and quick to respond. We stayed in a charming rustic casita on her lovely ranch property. We had everything we needed, most importantly a comfortable queen bed. WIFI worked well. Be sure to visit the terrific Amerind Museum and the amazing Chirachua National Monument.

Martin    January 2019

In setting up our vacation to Arizona we wanted first of all to be in a place removed from all the hustle and bustle of the big city. We wanted peace and quiet but to still be within driving distance of new and different things to see. The Hidden Oasis met every one of our needs- Peace and quiet but still within easy driving distance to Benson, Willcox and Tucson. I-10 took us just about everywhere we wanted to go. Plus our hosts, Maxine and Chad, were very gracious and accommodating. I don't think we ever found either one of them in a bad mood! Great people! great place! We were not real anxious to leave.

Kris    September 2019

Maxine and her husband definitely have the gift of hospitality. My husband and I felt like they were welcoming long lost friends when we arrived. The casita (the 2 bedroom) was great - it was decorated with old knickknacks and cool pictures. Having a full kitchen was very nice too. The location was perfect for sight seeing in Tombstone, Bisbee and Douglas. If you are interested in ghost towns, there are several near Tombstone that don't require 4-wheel drive. The weather was perfect - much cooler than Phoenix. They have 3 casitas so this would be a perfect place for a multi family vacation. This was a million times better than a hotel. We will definitely stay here again.
