Watson Lake Inn Bed & Breakfast, located minutes from downtown Prescott, provides a secluded ambiance and spectacular views of the Granite Dells, Mingus Mountain, and the San Francisco Peaks in the distance. Experience a unique lodging experience in one of our four suites on property here in Prescott Arizona.
Watson Lake Inn was envisioned by the owners many years ago, but not until 2016 when they discovered this log home, it became a reality. For them it was the perfect location to provide lodging for outdoor enthusiasts and foodies alike; and they purchased the property in 2017.
Watson Lake Inn is a hybrid concept, a Bed & Breakfast Inn combined with a cooking school, located secluded in the Granite Dells near Watson Lake, but close to all the action around Prescott court house square. The Inn is the place for you to enjoy great food prepared with local and seasonal ingredients; exposure to culinary arts, hike and bike the Granite Dells; to honeymoon, celebrate an anniversary or birthday, or just get away for a few days and relax.
“We have always loved the mountains and lakes, and Prescott has pleasant weather year round. We live on property with our children Daniel and Anna Claudia and are available during the day for anything you may need, we want you to experience a worry free vacation/business trip on our property”.
