Welcome to Battiste's Bed, Breakfast and Birds, a Non-Smoking B&B. We are located in the famed Miller Canyon area in the Huachuca Mountains. Our home stay is the perfect place to relax and enjoy nature in all its glory. We are surrounded by indigenous oaks and mesquite trees. Many feeders have been placed in the garden to provide close-up views of the numerous bird species that frequent the yard. 151 bird species has been seen in or from our yard. This number includes our nesting Elf Owl's that make their arrival around mid-March, staying through July each year.
Birders will delight in the 100's of species found annually in the nearby mountains, desert, and riparian areas, all within easy driving distance of our home. Our home is located minutes away from renowned birding hot spots such as Ash, Carr, Miller and Ramsey Canyons of the Huachuca Mountains. We are the perfect home base for day trips to other birding locations such as the San Pedro River, Patagonia, (with The Nature Conservancy's Patagonia-Sonoita Creek Preserve, world famous Rest Stop and Patagonia Lake State Park), Fort Huachuca's Garden and Scheelite Canyons, Madera and Florida Canyons in the Santa Rita Mountains, the grasslands of the San Rafael Valley and Santa Cruz River.
We offer affordable rates and personal attention to the needs of each of our guests. If birdwatching is the focus of your trip, then you have come to the right place. Being passionate birder's ourselves, we delight in sharing our knowledge and hearing about your experiences. Whether you are here for business or pleasure you will feel warm and welcomed. A home away from home.
