Description/Prices for 6 Units:

Go directly to RATES without scolding down and learning something about our place.

Taken by Jay Mock Photography from the porch of Unit F, looking North. This view has changed because all the trees
West of the Green cabin and below the Reef were burnt in the Monuments Fire.

GO to Charles Melton's website for Interior Photos of our units.

We ARE STILL OPEN. You can't keep a great place closed even tho the 2011 Monument Fire/Floods hit Beatty's Guest Ranch
& Orchard hard. We are even more of an Oasis for the Upper Miller Canyon Area and this should help to bring in more Rare Birds
in the years to come.

Things are getting better each day. Miller Canyon Road has been fixed and the Trails North to Clark Springs have been repaired.
Some new Trail Signs have replaced the burnt ones.

Miller Canyon Road/Trails will be affected by floods for years. Best to drive a High Clearance Vehicle if coming during the Monsoons.
Miller Canyon Trail, up Canyon, to the Spotted Owls etc. was washed out and the pipeline work by the City of Tombstone has not helped.

The trail will not be worked on for a couple of years, only people that are good hikers should do this hike.

We have bought a Tractor with backhoe to get our place in working order and it is helping a lot. For example:

On this side of Miller Creek, Cabin A and Unit B are available, but Unit C will be closed for sometime.

Units D/E/F are open, but will be harder to reach, because the creek bed is wider and deeper and the bridges were
washed away. They are closed down for Fall/Winter anyway, but will be open this Spring. The area around these
units were NOT BURNT, so D/E/F are still great to sit outside and enjoy nature. Our prices are great too.

We are a working Farm/Orchard at the above scenic location that has opened our 10 acres to the birding public
and because of this have received many nice emails from people that have stayed or watched Hummers

Hummingbird Viewing will be more controlled starting in 2012. We plan to have only 4-5 feeders in the Gazebo for the
Handicapped and the rest across Miller Creek at the CAS.

The CAS will be harder to reach and we must make sure that all NON-Guests know this and are up to it.

Feeders still will be at Units A and B, for Guests only.

We only want happy GUESTS. If a Rural setting reached by driving off the pavement is not your cup of tea, then
don't read any further.

We don't book tours of more than 8 people and limit them to 3 units. Please don't book part of your tour here and
the rest elsewhere! The coming and going of non-guest/guest tour members is just too much. If you do then

The addition of an antenna booster to our wireless modem allows guests to receive Internet Service at the Picnic Table
from the Handicapped Only Viewing Area/Gazebo/Store and in Units B/C.

2. WALK-IN Cabins: D/E/F

Amenities are provided: including linens, dishes/cooking utensils.

that charge photo equipment, computers, cells phones etc. and bring electric
appliances should only rent A/B/C because Units D/E/F are on solar power and
have limited excess power. Also solar power can harm their equipment.

The following comments were taken from our DC to AC Inverter Manual:
Rechargeable Devices: When first using a rechargeable device, monitor its
temperature for 10 minutes to ensure it does not become abnormally hot.
Excessive heat will indicate that it is incompatible with the inverter.
Some products can be damaged when used with modified sine-wave power. If in
doubt, check with the product's manufacturer.

These 3, OFF THE GRID and ACROSS THE CREEK cabins are great for ADULTS that like solitude.
They are reached by an UPHILL 150-200 yard hike and should only be rented by ADULTS who can
HIKE UPHILL and are in tune with nature. Don't bring outside electric appliances because the solar
system CAN NOT HANDLE IT!  Don't put more in the fridge than needed! 
Units: E/F are limited to 2
ADULTS and Unit D is limited to 4 ADULTS.

The WALK-IN CABINS are great for light cooking, however if wanting to do more cooking/partying
then Units: A/B/C would be best.

No BQ's are allowed at Units: D/E/F, because of their remoteness!
