On Saturday I participated in the World Wide Photo Walk (Look for pictures in a future post!). I decided I needed a change of scenery and instead of going to one of the two Tucson ones - I went to one in Miami, Arizona. Its around 2.5 hrs away. Since it started at 8am I went up the night before.
I decided to stay at a Bed and Breakfast instead of a hotel. Best decision ever. This wasn't just any ol' B&B - It was the Noftsger Hill Inn in Globe, AZ. The Noftsger Hill Inn used to be the Noftsger Hill School. It was originally built in 1907 and it was used for school up until 1989.
The building has original creaky wood floors, two big cement staircases, and many class rooms with original chalkboards. The whole place is decked out with antiques. My pictures don't do the place justice. It has so much charm, have a look...
Classroom turned bedroom. Enough room for a family!
Another classroom turned bedroom.
Chalkboard! Notes from guests past.
Each classroom had a coatroom that had been changed into a bathroom.
Upstairs common space.

Looking down the stairs. Class pictures hang on the wall to the left.
Downstairs common space.
The room I stayed in used to be an old maintenance work room. (or so I'm told by some of my family that had stayed there before). It was "The Cowboy Room" and it was decked out in everything western. So cute. It was not nearly as big as the classrooms - but a perfect size for one person.
It had a private bathroom as well with a clawfoot tub (not pictured).
Oh yea, We can't forget Breakfast. YUM!
This is the place to checkout if you ever need to stay in the Globe area!
Have you ever stayed in a Bed and Breakfast?
