If you're looking for a place that's REALLY quiet at night, this is it. The owner, Jackie, will give you a warm welcome and introduce you to her friendly dog, Bojangles. Then spend some time watching the feeders. We stayed in the new Heller House, which is very private and a bit further down the driveway where no other vehicles... More

Don't miss this educational and unique opportunity! A volunteer group gathers together 2 Saturdays a month to ID band hummingbirds to track their migration patterns. Contact George Walker house for the specific schedule. This is a super interesting process as they are measured in many ways, weighed, etc. Google hummingbird banding for more detailed info.

Located in the small village of Paradise, AZ, the George Walker Guest House is, to say the least, off of the beaten path. Paradise is 16 miles west of Rodeo, New Mexico, and about 5 miles west of Portal, AZ, along a gravel forest service road in the Chiricahua Mountains and is an old almost ghost town.

We'll always love saying we were married in Paradise. We've stayed at the George Walker House house numerous times in the past. It's definitely 'off the beaten path'. There is great bird and bat watching right from the porch of George Walker House, plus the opportunity to observe (and possibly assist in) the banding of hummingbirds!, which happens every other...

Far from the maddening crowd in the remote Chiricahua Mtns in SE Arizona lies the old mining community of Paradise and paradise it certainly is. Within this small community you will find a B&B called the George Walker house. Over a hundred years old but clean and comfortable and right in the middle of world class birding/wildlife observation and scenery... More

I will try to say what others have not. My family loves the George Walker House. Even my teenagers can't wait to visit each year.

Every reviewer say five stars, and for some reason the tripadvisor site says four. This place is definitely 5 stars. This humble looking house is great inside - well decorated, clean, with all of the amenities. It has a complete kitchen with most food you will need (except perishables) as well as spices, full size stove and refrigerator, etc. There... More

What a nice surprise. I knew this was an old house and it did remind me of being a kid at my grandparents except the furniture is nicer here and there is an excellent library. The latter came into play during an afternoon thunderstorm. You could spend a couple days just reading, but Cave Creek Canyon is close by and... More
