Unlike a lot of places on TripAdvisor, this place is even better than it looks in the photos! We really enjoyed our stay here. We loved our room, adorned with local arts and weavings. We loved the courtyard area. We loved the gardens, with all the hummingbirds flying around and incredible view of the desert and of sunset, and we... More

The Cat Mountain is beautifully decorated with southwestern decor. The courtyard and grounds are lush with desert vegetation. The rooms are colorful and comfortable. It is located near the Desert Museum and Saguaro National Park but also a convenient distance from the activities and amenities of Tucson. It is a relaxing and beautiful stay just for itself. The night sky... More

The Lodge was conveniently located near the Arizona-Sonoma Desert museum. The furnishings were fun. Deb was very helpful. She was quick to resolve a wifi issue in a super timely manner. The nature trail around the Lodge was a bonus, as was the hot tub under the stars.

We chose this lodge because the Spenser Observatory is in the grounds, where you can pay to have a guided tour of the night sky. Unfortunately the astronomy session had to be cancelled because of cloud cover, but that didn't take away from the charming, friendly, beautifully furnished room we stayed at. The host couldn't have done more to ensure... More

We really appreciate your awesome review! We are sad to hear the Star Tour was cancelled due to cloud cover. Unfortunately clouds are the enemy of star gazing. We hope that you have a chance to come back and enjoy the tour you came out for. The owner hand-picks all the decor in each room, so we are happy you... More

Breakfasts at Coyote Pass were exceptional & included with stay. Did Observatory on site plus Maze & enjoyed the wonderful landscaping.

I found Cat Mountain Lodge on the internet. We drove from Florida to spend a week at Cat Mountain, and our stay was absolutely awesome. This is truly a dessert environment. At 72, with a 30 year military career, it was my most memorable vacation. The scenery is spectacular. Old Tucson movie set, with over 300 western films were made,... More

If you are traveling to Tucson for the Desert Museum or the national park, this is a great choice. The small lodge is on the west side of town, in the foothills of the parkland, outside of the bustle that is downtown and the university district to the east. The rooms are clean, comfortable and bright, around a central courtyard.... More

Superb accommodation with very friendly and helpful housekeepers. The rooms were large and very clean and the breakfasts were excellent. It was central to the Sonora Museum and Tucson Studios. We all had a great time and would stay here again.

The place is cozy and restful. I enjoyed a nature walk every morning and evening, and the cafe has delicious breakfasts. My room was spotless-clean and the managers are so friendly I felt like I was staying with long-time friends. Really enjoyed it.
