High above the Cobre Valley in the shadow of the Old Dominion Mine, The Noftsger Hill Inn stands - a monolithic monument to miner, academic, and architect. Built as a school in 1907, this majestic Bed & Breakfast, located in Globe, Arizona, is filled with rustic elegance and framed by mining era houses. The front rooms provide a panoramic view of the ruggedly beautiful Pinal Mountains. Rear rooms face the Old Dominion Mine, offering a picturesque view of historic mining operations. Elementary school classrooms in a previous era, guest rooms today are unusually spacious, each with a sitting area, fireplace and private bathroom. The guest rooms are carefully appointed with our private collection of mining era antiques and art. Original chalkboards in the guest rooms are "decorated" with comments from past guests. One and a half hours from Tucson and Phoenix. What a great opportunity to steep in history and sleep in class! View our web site: www.noftsgerhillinn.com
