This is the most amazing bed and breakfast we have ever stayed in. The hosts are 2 of the nicest gentleman! Their hospitality is above and beyond any expectations we had. This is the best place in Arizona to stay. Don't waste your money on a hotel, stay with Kent & Jerry and feel more like you are at home then away.
I must recommend the Orange Blossom Hacienda B&B! My husband planned a surprise getaway for our Anniversary and took me to this B&B because he knew I wanted to explore the Olive Mill and other farms in the Queen Creek area, and it couldn't have been more perfect!
The B&B is located conveniently close to everything you want to get to in the QC area, and it's at the end of a quiet residential street. We enjoyed the beautiful pool and yard the evening we arrived as well as the next morning before we checked out. This property is like an oasis! The pool is gorgeous, and has a water feature that provides the most soothing sound on earth throughout the yard. Add to that the birdsong from all the birds on the property and we were in heaven. The only thing that could have been better was if we had gone in March because the property is actually part of an orange grove, so it's blanketed in orange trees that are around 100 years old! I can only imagine how intoxicating the orange blossoms are in the spring when they're all blooming!
And I haven't gotten to the best part yet! Kent made us the most unbelievable breakfast - from scratch - that you can imagine. Pecan french toast with fresh fruit on the side, thick sliced organic bacon from a butcher down the road, and fresh squeezed orange juice from the trees on the property. I wish we could have stayed an extra night to see what he came up with for breakfast #2! What a wonderful host! He even sent us home with some organic artichokes from his garden! I could not be more pleased with our stay at Orange Blossom Hacienda.
A bed and breakfast in the dusty southeast corner of Phoenix? Yes, indeed! Kent and Jerry boast a beautiful home with three comfortable guest rooms, a beautiful pool-side back yard nestled against a 100-year-old citrus orchard, and the most amazing breakfast I've eaten in a long, long time. Relaxing at Orange Blossom and then spending an afternoon at the nearby Olive Mill made for a great mini-vacation!
I just want to say how impressed I was with my stay at the Hacienda. It was such a lovely and inviting place! I so enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere inside and out. The views were so pretty, and I loved sitting out by the pool. I have told so many of my friends to take a special trip and stay at Orange Blossom Hacienda!
The owners along with the mascot, Buddy greeted us, gave us a tour of the home, and were always available at anytime we needed them. Jerry and Kent were the perfect hosts and Buddy added to our stay playfully following us around. The house and the surrounding grounds were amazing. The grounds are meticulously maintained, elegant and quite peaceful. The gardens are spectacular with the huge pool surrounded by the orange grove. The home is tastefully decorated in a southwest decor and very comfortable. Everything was provided making our two day stay quite comfortable surpassing our expectations. Breakfast the following morning was amazing, salmon eggs benedict with orange hollandaise sauce, fresh squeezed orange juice and fruit... what more can I say, other than 1st Class! Even though we had an early morning flight not only did Kent wake up to bid us farewell, but Jerry had made us a delicious egg burrito breakfast the night before to take along. After spending a week in Arizona staying at various locations we are looking forward to our next trip spending more time at the Orange Blossom. My only hesitation in giving this B&B a high review is that once others discover and experience this
The room we were in was cozy and comfortable. This is the first time I've slept in a bed other than my own where I didn't wake up with a backache the first few days. The breakfasts were outstanding, every morning a gourmet feast. The pool was perfect for cooling off in the hot sun, and the birdlife was plentiful for a couple of avid birdwatchers like us. Kent was away for most of our stay, but Jerry was a very gracious host, easy to talk to, and both Kent and Jerry were very quick with great ideas for our limited sight-seeing time. We will definitely stay here again should we find ourselves in Arizona again, and would actually make a point of coming back to stay here again.
Jerry and Kent are very accomodating and we had an exceptional stay. The pool is gorgeous and worth a visit. Jerry's breakfasts are the best we've had at a B&B and that's saying alot since we stay in B&B's at least ten times a year!
My husband and I stayed one night. We arrived to find a very charming and gracious Jerry ready to make us feel at home. The room was lovely and the bed very comfortable. Jerry made sure that we knew where we were headed to visit my sister in a nearby town before leaving us to enjoy the facilities. The coffee was magnificent and the next morning's breakfast was an absolute treat. We enjoyed salmon eggs benedict with an orange infused hollandaise sauce, spiced poached pears, orange juice and coffee. The juice was grown on-site and, as I told Jerry, was amazing - seeming almost honeyed. We left a shirt behind and it was promptly mailed to us. Jerry helped us mailing some things and made for an invigorating morning philosophical discussion. Thank you for welcoming us and for the memorable stay in your beautiful B&B. Kindest Regards, Kelly & Tom
On meeting our host, Jerry Day, so obvious was his gentle goodwill as well as that of his dog, Buddy, that it was immediately clear that we must have a superb stay, and nor were my wife and I disappointed. Jerry was the perfect host throughout: welcoming, kindly, courteous, attentive, yet careful not to intrude. His intention was unmistakable - he was willing to do all in his power to make our visit a joy, and so it inevitably turned out to be. He and Buddy were two perfect gentlemen; the pool was perfect, and so was the accomodation and the gourmet breakfast. The only deficiency was that, this time, we did not get to meet our co-host, Kent Musgarve - an omission we hope to correct next time. A million heartfelt thanks! Tom Kelly, Escondido, CA.
Staying at the Orange Blossom Hacienda was like visiting friends and was seriously welcome at the end of a hectic driving vacation. You are made to feel incredibly welcom and the house and gardens are lovely, cool and relaxing. I would totally recommend it to anyone visiting Phoenix.
We had the best time ever. What a nice place, so beautiful and soothing. Kent and Gary are the best inn keepers in the west. They treat every guest like family. It has been a long time since I was treated like a queen, from the wonderful room to the lovely breakfast everything was just right. Relaxing on the porch at sunset with a glass of wine was like being transported away from all my troubles and problems. I can't wait to go back. This would be the perfect place for a wedding or any other special occasion. Of course saying there just to get away from it all is special in itself.\r
A perfect weekend! Subtle orange blossom perfume from the surrounding groves; beautiful inviting grounds and pool; handsome southwestern decor; incredibly delicious gourmet breakfasts, pleasing to the eye and the palette; and genuinely warm and thoughtful hospitality of the hosts...all this (and more) makes Orange Blossom Hacienda an oasis in the Arizona desert! Since it is in close proximity to Phoenix and Apache Junction, we were well positioned to attend the Renaissance Festival and enjoy other special offerings in the area returning each evening to our small but extremely comfortable and well appointed room (with a balcony and a view of the mountains!); . It was a perfect birthday celebration and get-away for us. We most definitely recommend it and plan to return.
