About Bonnie Williams
It is my long wished-for delight to share my Bisbee home with you and your family or friends. After 30+ years of renovations and reliance on many Bisbee artisans, the Dragonview is now ready for you to enjoy too. I hope you appreciate this unique town and renew your spirit in these magical mountains. Murray and I live in the cottage, located at the far end of the property, so we are available to assist you if needed. I currently also work in Bisbee as a Community Development Program Manager for a 4 County area. I grew up in Canada, and moved to Bisbee in 1979. Later, I lived in Japan for 4 years, and was born in the year of the Dragon, hence my fascination with the creatures. The Dragon has many different meanings, but I like to think it will bring good luck to you! Be sure to take a picture with the life size Dragon Gate. I look forward to meeting you! Thank you for your patronage.
Bonnie Williams purchased this House in 1979
Why Bonnie Williams chose Bisbee
While still living in Canada, one day I looked at a map of Arizona, saw the name 'Bisbee' and suddenly 'knew' I was going to live there someday. I fell in love with it the first time I saw it, as many other residents and visitors have. The weather is near perfect, not too hot, not too cold, and the history of the area is fascinating. I love the sky, the stars, the mountain views and the warm people of this community.
What makes this House unique
There are few quaint and historic towns in Arizona, and Bisbee is the best. Slip back in time while enjoying modern amenities and inspiring views from this large and luxurious mountain home. It was half the size and quite a mess when I first bought it. It has been my 'art project' and a real learning experience, something like the old movie 'Money Pit'. The fantastic views and large yard were always there but I totally rebuilt the house, including pine wood ceilings and cabinets, stone walls and staircases, and the remarkable iron work all over the property.

Amazing Home and Views!
This was our third visit to Bisbee and couldn't have been happier with the accommodations at Dragonview. We enjoyed trips to town and other destinations, returning to this comfortable and clean home to enjoy the views from the patios and nearby walks with our pups. Thank you, Bonnie and Murray, for sharing your beautiful retreat!
We're thankful for your nice review, and so glad you enjoyed your stay. We hope you'll be back soon!
This house and grounds are beautiful! Such a large yard for Bisbee! The gardens, patios etc. are so relaxing. Views are fantastic. The house is the biggest in town and so very, very comfortable! Feels like home the moment you step in. Will certainly tell my friends about it and will book again.
The property is very clean, roomy, charming and comfortable. All of Old Bisbee is within walking distance.
Sorry for the delay in responding to your positive review. Thanks so much for that. We hope you will return some time, but until then, be well and happy!
Comfy, spacious home away from home
The Dragonview is the gem of Bisbee. My seven and four year old children said they felt like this was their home! It has wonderful porches off each bedroom, comfy beds, hotel pillows, cushy towels, and SPACE - something you will be hard-pressed to find elsewhere in this quirky town. It is an easy, engaging walk from the downtown area, which affords additional privacy and quiet you won’t find easily. There are spices, condiments, and even water bottles in the large kitchen! Additionally, the home owner is a kind soul; not only did she offer socializing if we wanted (we were sadly too busy with a wedding - I would have loved to ask her all about life in Bisbee!), but she also went the extra mile and sent my son’s forgotten lovey back to us! This is one of the few multiple-bedroom homes available in Bisbee, so plan ahead and book this memory-maker for your stay!
Thank you, thank you, thank you for such a kind review! I hope you will be back some day so we can sit down and chat. By the way, living in this "quirky" town is great and never boring! Your kids were lovely by the way!
Five Star Quality the beds were fantastic the robes in each closet were great touch Bonnie and Murray were great hosts we loved it this is an excellent place to stay great location to Historic downtown Bisbee and enjoying the staircases that Bisbee has to offer
it was our pleasure to host you and your sisters, and we thank you for your nice review. Please come back again!
Great house within walking distance to town. Great views, cool location, friendly owners. Huge kitchen is fully equipped, everything was very clean and comfortable. The driveway is definitely narrow but fit our Ford Explorer. Great visit to Bisbee
So glad you had a great and comfortable visit. Thanks so much for taking the time to post a positive review. If you're ever back this way, do stay again!
Bisbee is primarily a walking town due to the many public staircases constructed over mule trails by the WPA in the 1930’s that are a must to explore. See the many unique and unusual hillside houses and gardens not visible from the streets.
While visiting, it is recommended to take in the Queen Mine Tour, Old Bisbee Ghost Tour, Smithsonian affiliated Bisbee Mining & Historical Museum, numerous art galleries, antique stores and many fine dining restaurants during your stay.
Bisbee is also centrally located for day trips to Tombstone, Kartchner Caverns State Park, and Chiricahua National Monument Wonderland of Rocks. Great birding opportunities are available on the property, at the San Pedro Riparian National Conservation Area, Whitewater Draw Wildlife Area and other nearby scenic locations.
