Fall asleep listening to the soulful hooting of owls and the stirring songs of the coyotes. Wake up in your cozy King size bed realized you are immersed within the photogenic cacti of postcards and western movies where the giant saguaro reigns supreme.
There is a rosey private bathroom finished in authentic Mexican talavera tile with bath tub and shower. Your private veranda has plentiful seating/lounging area for reading in the afternoons, star gazing in the evenings, or possibly spotting a red tail hawk circling the sky as they catch a warm breeze. Gazing below at the David Yetman trailhead you’ll begin planning your days possibilities.
Just down the way from your private entrance is a beautiful courtyard featuring native and exotic cacti, benches, and mesquite shaded seating areas.

Guests love to sit by the negative edge pool and read a book or enjoy the spa. This is indeed an idyllic place to relax and let the rhythms of the desert guide your day.
A Few Reviews…
“Blue Agave is on our list for return visits!”
I almost don’t want to share this place as it is small and will book out quickly, but we loved our stay so much we are willing to let others in on this special place. This B & B has it all, gorgeous location, beautiful rooms, the most attractive outdoor spaces we have experienced and that includes travel in us and abroad. But Blue Agave has an extra bonus, Dana. She exudes friendliness and goes out her way to make you feel at home. I borrowed her hiking poles, she made us appetizers when she was a little late getting the hot tub swarmed up for us–and always helped us plan our day. One night while my husband and I soaked were soaking in the hot tub Peter came out and named some of the emerging stars. From hiking, to national parks this area is outstanding. We are already planning next winter’s visit.
When you first spot the Blue agave Bed and Breakfast, perched in the foothills above the desert floor, you immediately know you are going someplace special and unique. Having already enjoyed two stays, we highly recommend the Blue agave for your next visit to Tucson. Nestled against the mountains, the views are stunning in every direction. The inn is surrounded with birds, wildlife, and towering saguaro cactus – the exquisite sunrises are matched only by the magnificent night skies.
The casitas are comfortable and beautifully appointed. Our room had a private patio with a chiminea – a cozy spot to enjoy the sunset over the desert. The inn’s numerous common areas provide opportunities to chat with the other guests, swim in a sparkling pool, or relax in the hot tub. There are miles of easily accessible hiking trials right off the property. In this magical environment, you get all the advantages of the desert’s quiet and solitude, along with easy access to the nearby attractions of Tucson. Friendly and outgoing innkeeper Dana Smith is an award-winning artist. It is her vision that has created this enchanting, treasure-filled inn. Dana pays attention to all the details that will make your stay relaxing and refreshing. We eagerly look forward to returning to the Blue agave on our next Tucson visit!
“This Is the Place!”
If you come upon it at dusk as we did on our first visit you look up toward the great mountain and on its shoulder there’s the casbah outlined in tiny white lights, reddish adobe trimmed in Mexican yellows, lime and avocado greens, pistachio,oranges and blues. In the yards and lovely gardens sculptures and ceramics are set about with mineral specimens and fossils. The handsome casitas are fitted out with everything one might desire in an earthly abode including chocolates. The views toward the east over the Catalina Mountains and Tucson at sunset are glorious. There are birds of all description, coyotes sing in the distance, bees are busy in the sage. At night Tucson glitters far below. The coffee is as bracing as the hosts’ conversation. This place was conceived and built as a pleasure palace. The porches and main rooms are immense with vast fireplaces and Dana’s unique paintings and sculptures. The pool is perfect. Adjoining the property is a park fine for walking and hiking, and not far to the west there’s the Saguaro National Park and the arizona Sonora Desert Museum. The negative? At some point you have to leave, which is not fair.
“Wonderful week at the Blue agave!”
My wife and I stayed at the Blue agave for 4 nights in November and it was marvelous. The house sits atop a hill near the entrance to Tucson Mountain Park. The views are incredible, particularly from the pool and hot tub! We both enjoyed hiking and mountain biking in the Park followed by wine in the hot tub.
The house has 4 casitas, each decorated in vibrant colors. Our bed was luxurious. Our room was very quiet, but I recommend leaving the sliding door open to hear the coyotes at night! Deer and javelina are also in the area. Peter and Dana are gracious hosts and very interesting people. Dana is an accomplished artist – her fascinating sculptures are located all over the property. Peter is a Ua Professor and Mars scientist. I greatly recommend the Blue Agave as a wonderful place to relax or for rigorous activity. We’ll be back.
