Relax and experience beauty inside and outside in this art-filled and fully furnished 2200 sq. ft. home surrounded by mountain views. You will awaken from restful and modern accommodations to breath-taking vistas.

All bedrooms have PRIVATE OUTSIDE ENTRANCES.

You'll appreciate the diverse activities surrounding this secluded yet centrally located home. Hike, bike or drive to the forests, streams, hot springs, Gila River, canyons, or Gila Cliff Dwelling National Monument. Or if you prefer town activities, there are restaurants, music, museums, art galleries, and cultural events in nearby historic Silver City.

Thank you for the opportunity to feel the land, touch the sky, and open my heart. This land rejoices and reminds me of my own joy. I will return again. This is the best kept secret in Silver City! Many Blessings,

                                Just wanted to let you know that we had the best vacation we have ever had!   We LOVED the house and the location.  The house is just so comfortable, and we all felt so relaxed.  The beds are very comfortable, the kitchen is so well equipped, and the stereo speakers produce excellent sound (odd comment, but I don't like "fuzzy" sound systems).    Rob and I rode our bikes every day and managed to make it to the Gliff Dwellings and back on Friday -  Aunt Ruth and Uncle Larry went horseback riding at Becky Campbell's (Gila Hot Springs), and they said it was the best trail ride they've ever taken.    We made most of our meals in and appreciated having The Joy of Cooking. Thank you for making this very special place available to us!

                                It is no wonder Agave Ridge Retreat is nestled in the Land of Enchantment. There is so much magic to be found at every turn. The accommodations are an earthy delight with open spaces filled with rich tapestries, rugs and inspired artwork. The surrounding environment is sensorially spectacular. It is a perfect place to rest, renew...and return again - which I have twice now!

                              Manager info

                              Year Purchased: 1999

                              About: The owner, Bruce, was a factory worker, logger, newspaper reporter, PR flunkie, and unpublished fiction writer before he discovered computers and lost all interest in reality. He spent 12 years in a computer fog, but gave it all up to move to the Silver City area in 1999. He is now in recovery, but does find time to manage an office building and a few other business projects in town.

                              Why Silver City:
                              Bruce lived in this beautiful house for five years before turning it into a vacation rental. If you don't book it, he probably will. It's a sacred place that he likes to share with others.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              This is the next to last house on the phone and electric lines. Beyond us are a couple of tiny communities and a hundred miles of wilderness. The nearest mall is about 90 miles away. It's a little inconvenient to get here, but worth the trouble.
