About Your Hosts

We first moved into our historic Armory Park home in 1991. Most of the work to restore our 1921 California Bungalow was accomplished when we first moved in, but in 2012 we wanted to transform our property into a cheerful bed and breakfast. That’s when the real work started! We painted the place – inside and out – and (with the help of some great neighbors, family members and friends) we created our dream: The Storyteller’s Guest House.

Back in 1991 when we first bought the place, I (Martha) was working as a television director for the Tucson NBC affiliate, and my partner, Glenda, was a marketing director for a local non-profit. Over the years, we enjoyed our home and found out a lot about all the wonderful things to see and do in Southern Arizona. Eventually both of us retired from our 9 to 5 jobs to pursue other interests.

Since 1996, Glenda has been a full-time storyteller listed on the artist rosters of several states, and often goes on tour with her shows and programs. I manage Glenda’s website, take photos, provide video as needed, and occasionally serve as a puppeteer for library performances. If you’d like more information about Glenda’s storytelling and our puppet shows, I think you’ll find her website interesting:

By now you’ve probably figured out why our B & B is called The Storyteller’s Guest House.

We consider ourselves fun-loving and creative, and we try to express these attributes in the many of the details you will find when you stay at our bed and breakfast. It is our intent to provide our guests with a feeling of exclusivity, comfort and convenience. At The Storyteller’s Guest House, you can expect a delicious home-cooked breakfast every day you stay with us (Glenda does most of the cooking). We are happy to accommodate food preferences, and we are always available when our guests have questions or need information.
Thanks so much for your interest in The Storyteller’s Guest House. We look forward to meeting you the next time you visit Tucson!
