This Arizona Hotel Used To Be A Schoolhouse And You Need To Visit
When it comes to mining towns, Arizona is home to quite a few that are historic, spooky, and surprisingly pretty.
Globe is just one example with plenty of things to do and see. If you want to book a stay while supporting local businesses, you’ll want to check out this incredible little hotel that will remind you of the town’s humble origins.
Noftsger Hill Inn was built in 1907 as Noftsger Hill School, an elementary school that operated until 1981.
The building proudly sits just shy of the old Dominion Mine, providing a personal view of Globe's mining industry. There's no doubt that some of its former students probably ended up working in the industry in the years after they left school.
In 2001, the school was purchased and renovated into a bed and breakfast inn.
Driving by, you probably wouldn't expect the very institutional-looking building to be a cozy inn but just wait until you walk inside. The vintage decor, peaceful atmosphere, and welcoming hosts will make you feel less guilty for falling asleep in a classroom.
Classrooms were renovated into spacious hotel rooms, giving each one an airy, light-filled atmosphere in addition to a unique theme that makes your stay unforgettable.
The Victorian room, for example, has a romantic and luxurious feel. It blends rich hues, delicate fabrics, and floral details into a room that is warm and inviting.
Each room contains a number of beautiful, vintage furniture, pictures, and other decorations that will take you back to another time period.
Meanwhile, the ‘40s room feels sophisticated and luxurious with its muted palette and less fussy decor. You just might feel like a classic Hollywood star staying here and primping in front of the vanity.
And the southwest room is a bit more minimalistic with simple furnishings and lots of wooden accents.
By the way, did you notice anything that stood out in the previous room?
Several of the rooms actually have original chalkboards still gracing the walls! Many guests have taken the liberty to sign their names to the chalkboard, something most people probably haven't done in years.
In the morning, you'll get to eat a scrumptious breakfast in the dining room! The meals are hearty and you get to meet other guests.
And the grounds are both beautiful and peaceful, just the right spot to read a book or simply enjoy a day off.
It looks like the perfect place to spend the weekend!
The Noftsger Hill Inn is located at 425 North Street in Globe. You can find information about booking a room on their website,
