Fodor's Expert Review Portal Peak Lodge

2358 S. Rock House Rd., Portal, Arizona, 85632, USA

With a lodge and a few cottages on the eastern side of Chiricahua National Monument, this humble structure near the New Mexico border is notable less for its rooms (clean and pleasant but nondescript) than for its winged visitors: the elegant trogon, 14 types of hummingbird, and 10 species of owl are among the 330 varieties of birds that flock to nearby Cave Creek canyon. The rooms, all of which are nonsmoking, share a large deck. The café serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day from late March through September; October through mid-March it's closed on Tuesday. Sack lunches are available on request.
