  • 2 Bedrooms
  • 2 Beds

This is our two-bedroom suite, Ocotillo (pronounced aa·kuh·ti·low), which is suited for families with a max occupancy of up to four guests of any age, all other suites can only accommodate one infant of up to two years of age with up to two adults. The Ocotillo suite is a private split level suite with one King bed, one Queen bed, one private bathroom, fireplace, living room and kitchenette, and 2 frame televisions. Please keep in mind this suite requires the use of stairs. For those interested in a relatively flat room layout, we'd recommend our Cholla, Creosote or Yucca listings.

JTH Tucson is a small inn lovingly nicknamed Posada, immersed in nature and available for overnight stays. The inn is made up of six private suites as well as over 5,000 sq ft of communal areas for all guests to enjoy. The unique nature of this inn allows us to offer self check-in for a private and immersive experience, while also having an on-site manager available for any questions or assistance you may need during your stay. Your private suite is designed to feel like home upon check-in, and to further that concept you’ll find that this is not a place with a “front desk” or a laminated binder of rules upon arrival. We are so grateful to welcome guests for a relaxed experience here in the Sonoran desert, a place our small team of three also calls home.

Our rural location borders the west side of Saguaro National Park in Tucson, AZ. Situated on 40 acres of land with a forest of Saguaro cactus, native plants, and an abundance of wildlife, this is a space to reflect, reset, and create.

When booking a suite, you will also have access to the shared areas at the JTH Tucson which include: a chef's kitchen, canyon pool (solar heated and best May through September), hot tub (heated to around 100 degrees), rooftop lounge, yoga room, dining patio with a charcoal grill, fire pit (firewood is provided), and living room with a projector.

We provide a light in-room breakfast upon check-in which includes local teas, coffee, almond milk, and gluten-free nut based granola; and we highly recommend picking up groceries for other meals to bring to the inn to fully take advantage of the remote setting, chef's kitchen, and charcoal grill. We also provide private chef contacts as well as other vendor recommendations for added experiences such as massages after booking.

A few things to note:

If you're interested in booking the full space please email us ( If you book all 6 suites independently, a buyout fee will be applied.

If you would like to do a commercial photoshoot on-site, bring a private vendor onsite for services outside of our recommended vendors list, or plan on hosting an event such as an elopement or wedding please let us know in advance as this affects pricing.

An incidental fee of $250/room per night may be charged for group stays of 3 or more rooms that are booked individually in an effort to maintain the quiet nature of the inn. For a group buyout with full privacy, please see the JTH Tucson listing.

The Inn is bordering Saguaro National Park West. The closest airport is Tucson International Airport TUS (45 minutes), & Phoenix PHX (1 hour 30 minutes). We'd recommend renting a car from the airport if you're not road tripping in to give you flexibility during your stay. Four wheel drive is recommended as we are located off of dirt roads, but not required.
