Welcome to Sky Island Living!

Mt Lemmon is the cool jewel of Southern Arizona, a sky island rising 7,000 feet from the Sonoran desert below. We spend our Spring and Summer days basking among the pines and wild flowers of the alpine forests, our Autumns hiking through the kaleidoscope of Aspens and Maples, and our Winters sipping hot cocoa and playing in the snow. Due to the mild climate of Southern Arizona and proximity to Tucson, Mt. Lemmon is your perfect shoulder season destination
