At this pet- and children-friendly Bed and
Breakfast, you'll enjoy lodging at and full use of a casually elegant desert- and
mountain-view home, pool and hot tub, choice of exotic or familiar 5-course
breakfasts, recreation and
sightseeing planning assistance for adults,
children, and thoughtful accommodations for kids, dogs,
and cats. Extensive information for
birdwatchers. Suitable for most chemically
sensitive (MCS) guests...This is a home away from home...not a hotel or motel.
Lovingly run by psychologist and
Sharon Arkin, Bed and Bagels reflects Sharon's passion for
international travel, good food, the out-of-doors, and art collecting.

Fax, computer for checking email, DSL and wireless internet, extensive library, bicycles,
binoculars, birding & hike guidebooks, games and toys, TVs and VCRs, CD and
tape players, and record player with vintage LP records. Fenced yard for

At breakfast, you might be served lox and bagels with all the fixin’s one
day, blintz soufflé or French toast with fresh
blueberry sauce the next. If you prefer to sleep late and help yourself, you might find
a ready-to-heat artichoke and cheese casserole, a chilled bowl of black
cherry and yogurt soup, or an Israeli or Mexican salad plate. Always available:
juice, fresh fruit, eggs, breakfast meats, cold and hot cereal, specialty breads and
spreads, coffee and teas, and home baked treats (bet on blueberry or cranberry almond
tarts and chocolate chip something!) Breakfasts to go for early morning bird
watching or hiking trips are a specialty.
Foreign visitors especially welcomed. Sharon speaks German, Spanish, and
Hebrew, and un peu francais. Willkommen, bien venidos, baruchim ha ba'im, bienvenue,
welcome to Tucson!
