Built in 1938, the Adobe House is one of the few adobe haciendas still standing in Yuma. Owners Kim and Kevin Wright retained many of the home’s original features: colored concrete floors, rings for tying up horses and a gentlemen’s smoking room and bar. But the Wrights have made the most of the grounds — transforming their 2 acres- plus into a tropical oasis with outdoor seating areas, beehive fireplaces and a waterfall. Ask for the Nautilus Room, which resembles a small beach condo. All white and wicker with sunny orange accents, the room includes a well-equipped kitchenette with stove, microwave and full-sized refrigerator. Breakfast, served under the shade of a palapa, will almost make you believe you’ve landed on a first-class island resort.
The Adobe House is located at 1681 W. 10th Street in Yuma. For more information, call 928-210-4777 or visit www.theadobehouse.com.
