I have never stayed in the cabins. I only have visited to see birds. I have visited at least 10 times over 20 years, including when the "Controlled Access " area was just a couple of folding chairs and a place to see a white-eared...More

We went to this property for bird and hummingbird watching (did not stay there). They have a lovely viewing area (which is up a rather steep path with ropes to help ensure you keep your balance). Well worth the walk to the viewing area! We...More

This is a great place to see the Magnificent Hummingbird. It's just a short dirt road off of Highway 90 up Miller Canyon Road only a couple of miles. A passenger car can make it fine just take it slow as there are some ruts...More

A really great place to sit (under shaded cover) and enjoy the many hummingbirds that come in to feed. There are also hiking trails to enjoy. There is a fee of $5 per person so that may be a hindrance to some people.

This is the premier spot in Southeastern Arizona for viewing hummingbirds. The Beatty's maintain a great selection of feeders in a viewing area that features comfortable covered seating. The fee of $5 per person is modest considering the effort expended to keep this site up...More
