Bisbee/Art, Eat, Ride, Sleep

When we travel we are diligent to see if the place we are staying measures up to their marketing. Often it doesn’t. We are truthful about what our rooms look like, (take the video tour for a birds eye view), scrupulous about cleanliness, and offer amenities usually found in more expensive places. We notify you when early check-in is possible because sometimes a few hours early turns a short trip into a longer one. This month we have put new mattress sets in each room. The Serta mattresses are from their Presidential II hotel line. We have also added some fun and artful wine glasses in each roo made by our friend Margie of Joy Attack out of Seattle (rooms are stocked with a complimentary bottle of wine). We’re proud of our place and are always open to hearing how we can make the Inn a better place (of if something is wrong for you).

The second Saturday of the month is Bisbee after 5 Art Walk. Join us for the latest in gallery openings and exposure to some of the best artists in Arizona. And every weekend there is live music in various venues in town.

The Bisbee Royal, across the street from Copper City Inn, features some of the best near first run and classic movies as well as documentaries. Occassional visits with filmakers. Special wine tastings. You can see the monthly Friday and Saturday schedule at bisbeeroyale.com.

Bisbee Bicycle Company at 29 Main Street now has 2 hour or more rentals including electric bikes. A fun way to see the back streets of Bisbee.

Although we offer a voucher for a continental breakfast at the High Desert Market, Anna’s seasonal kitchen, right next door to us, has full breakfast options and lunch with good local ingredients. And Cornucopia Cafe, 14 Main Street, a couple blocks down canyon from the Inn offers Sunday Brunch in addition to lunch during the week.

Cafe Roka is likely the best rural restaurant in Arizona (I’m the beverage manager and also tend bar on Friday and Saturday),two blocks down canyon from the Inn open for dinner Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, 5-9 pm and Sundays 5-8. The Roka Wine Bar tasting menus features Arizona regional wines from more than 20 vineyards paired with Chef/owner Rod Kass’s distinctive cuisine.
