OverviewShaw House is a stone cabin located in the east Cochise Stronghold in the Dragoon Mountains of Coronado National Forest. The house is nestled in a dramatic landscape of canyons, rock formations, and the shade of several large cottonwood trees, offering guests to the area a unique lodging experience. Nearby trails provide excellent hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding opportunities.
Shaw House is surrounded by the rugged beauty of the Cochise Stronghold in Coronado National Forest. West of Sunsites, Arizona in the Dragoon Mountains, this sparsely wooded area is a protective rampart of granite spires, sheer cliffs, balanced rocks and boulders, which were once the refuge of Apache Chief, Cochise.

The master bedroom has a queen-size bed, the second bedroom has two bunk beds, and there is a double-futon in the third bedroom. The living room contains three couches, several end tables and a fireplace. One bathroom has a shower, and the second has a bathtub.
