Face of Unique and Inspired Boutique Lodging

Tumbleweed Hotel

Established in 1970, The Tumbleweed Hotel is located in Cave Creek, Ariz. According to Urban Dictionary, it’s known as “a retro western place you go to stay if you are truly worthy of a conversation with John Wayne or past guests such as Dick Van Dyke or Waylon Jennings.” Owner Jeri Rust has grown the Tumbleweed Hotel into one of the most unique hospitalities in the West, offering 16 rooms and eight casitas. She is a designer with a collector prowess and wanted each room to tell a story. Waking early every weekend for years, Jeri and her husband Gary would venture to auctions, estate sales and explore hidden Arizona towns to find treasures. The collection grew and now supplies each impeccably and individually decorated room with vintage Arizona finds. The outdoor area is as unique as the rooms with open spaces, an old wagon, western benches, swings, charming cookout area and pool. Kick off your boots, hang your hat and enjoy this boutique hotel in the heart of Cave Creek!
