    Amazing atmosphere!

    This is such a hidden gem in Tucson with all the great personal touches you could dream of! All the team at The Stillwell House is so easy to work with and made the planning process a dream (especially when planning from out of state). We got so many compliments on the atmosphere, food, and friendly services. This was the best "bang-for-your-buck" venue without ANY compromise in quality! I would HIGHLY recommend this venue to family, friends, and would use again in the future for an event!

    Beautiful space with lots of potential

    We've been looking for a venue for a while and at first had no luck. We heard from a friend about Stillwell House and decided to visit. We fell in love from the very beginning. The space is beautiful. The staff was extremely knowledgeable and kind making our experience that much better. The space has a lot of potential and well taken care of.
