When you reach the desert getaway home you will find that you are half way up the mountainside with a mountain backdrop and a valley view. The valley view is miles of Sonoran desert with a faint view of an occasional train at the bottom of the valley. At night, you see some lights from Corona de Tucson some fifteen miles away. The back of the ranch is straight up the mountainside.
Located next to Colossal Cave Park and Saguaro National Park in Vail, AZ (20 miles) outside Tucson, this truly is the Sonoran Desert to perfection. The rocky mountainside with gigantic saguaros and other cactus engulfing it makes it “incredibly unique”. Just completed: 600 sq. ft. deck complete with Jacuzzi. Just the view is worth the price of admission.

We love Tucson, but wanted to be able to get away to see bright stars at night, relax with a view, listen to only the noise of wildlife and enjoy each other..
The stars, desert, view, jacuzzi, hiking and relaxing. Walking through Colossal Cave Park and hiking the Arizona Trail.
Just a note to let you know we had another delightful stay at 1-mile Inn.
We enjoyed many a beautiful sunset from the front porch and Diane had her daily post-hike dip in the hot tub.
By the way, as of this year it is now possible to mountain bike from the
trail head at the N end of Alta Loma Rd. all the way to Hope Camp, picking up the AZ trail along the way. From Hope the AZ trail now continues (legally) northward to Pistol Hill Road. It is 7.4 miles one way, and the return trip is mostly down hill. This would be a good route for people at the beginner level of mountain biking (as compared to the more difficult sections farther south), although I also enjoyed the ride as an experienced biker. You might pass this info on to future residents at 1-mile Inn, who are interested in doing some mt biking.
We were looking for a quiet place away from it all but still close to the Saguaro National Park. This was it!!! We were only 20 minutes from the East Park and loved it. The view from the front deck was fabulous. Coffee in the morning and wine to watch the sunset. After long hikes the hot tub for sunset was the best.
This is the second time we stayed in One Mile INN, the first time was for one week and we enjoyed it so much we came back this March for two weeks. House is well equipped and everything worked as expected. View from front porch is spectacular. Craig is a friendly understanding host.
This One Mile Inn was our home base during our stay just outside Tucson. Great location if you don't plan to go into the city much.
Easy access to Colossal cave, Saguaro national park east and Highway 10. Easy 30-40min drive to Catalina Highway to Mount Lemmon and to Sabino Canyon.
The home was quaint and cozy and very spacious for our small family of three. Home was clean and tidy and had all the cooking utensils we required and plenty of towels. Lots of character and obviously a well enjoyed home.
Highly recommend, if you are wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
This property was fairly priced and came with a wonderful view. It provided a great place to relax and commune with the family. Thank you for providing a place that is away from the city, yet convenient. The road getting there was a bit rough, but it all worked all great.
Great property at the end of a dusty road! We enjoyed the serenity of the property with its views of the Vail, easy access to desert hiking, and awesome sunsets. The house has all of the necessary accoutrements including a fantastic record collection. The house is well maintained and Craig's directions, property descriptions and advice were spot-on. We stayed at the property along with friends to watch our respective sons play spring-break baseball at the Kino Sports Complex. It was an easy ride to and from the sports complex to the house (roughly 30 minutes) with grocery stores along the way. We would definitively return and highly recommend it if you are interested in a quiet location, with near-by access to hiking/ biking trails.
The house was clean and comfortable. There were of amusing games and other diversions in the house including a collection of LPs and a phonograph to play them on. Horseback riding at Colossal Caves is only a few miles away. Mile long dirt road is not something one wants to do more than once a day. However, that is more than compensated by the wonderful views and the general sense of peace and quietness.
Our home is located in the perfect setting with bike trails and hiking out the front door. We are located next to Colossal Cave Park with all its offerings. You will not find a better view than the one from our front deck.
