Travel - Cochise County, Arizona
This century-old house is the only remaining two story, clapboard, country Victorian house in Tombstone. Built by an affluent attorney in 1904, it replaced the original house that burned down in the 1880's. It is painted in authentic Victorian colors and is listed on the National Historic Register of Homes. The house has been restored to perfection and still retains the original wood and some of the old gas-light fixtures. It is located within walking distance to the O.K. Corral, site of the famous gunfight with Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday and the Clantons.
.....We spent our wedding night in the honeymoon suite (the Garden Suite) at this delightful historic home. The rooms were spacious and comfortably furnished and our hosts were gracious, when we arrived late in the evening. The Wild Rose Inn is 2 blocks (and a century away) from the bustling main thorofare, where tourists and residents alike mingle on a Saturday night. Yet we were able to walk downtown, past the OK Corral to the Crystal Palace and Big Nose Kate's on the boardwalk on Allen Street. The next morning, a delicious gourmet breakfast was served to us on fine china, in the dining room. As we eagerly consumed our sumptuous meal, we sat surrounded by turn-of-the-century furniture, looking out at the picturesque garden. After breakfast we took a leisurely stroll through the garden which is a white-picket-fenced haven with tall shade trees, beautiful rose bushes, fountain and a Wedding Arbor. We sat in one of the patio areas, sipping our coffee and enjoying the serenity that surrounded us. All to soon, we had to return to our busy lives but we look forward to the next time we visit our neighbors in Tombstone!
