August weather in Arizona is usually on the hot side, but this year it's much cooler. Jerome is about an hour and a half north of Phoenix, at an elevation of 5,000 feet, and today the weather was absolutely perfect. Breezy, no need for an air conditioner, amazing. I always stay at my favorite bed and breakfast, The Surgeons House, and I always get this room if it's available.
I brought my good friend Susan along this time, and she's staying just down the hallway in the cutest room ever.
Andrea, the owner, has a yard where you could sit for days. It has a beautiful view of the Verde Valley, but the yard itself is a green oasis, even when you feel you're sitting on top of the world.
Here's Susan checking it out.
And here's Andrea, explaining something new she's added to the patio. She's absolutely passionate about providing the very best accommodations to all who stay here, and she's become a dear friend of mine.
