Las Cruces bed and breakfast description
You enter this home and are greeted by huge fossils from Morocco and a sculpture of a petite Japanese lady giving you an 'Ohaio'(Good day) greeting. You turn to the right into the Great Room and adjacent Dining Room, with their own unique sculptures and paintings. Huge Night Blooming Cereus cactus and tropical ginger shade the floor to ceiling from the desert sun. Continue your journey into the kitchen, equipped for someone who LIKES to cook (OR NOT). The surrounding windows look out onto your gigantic patio with its views of the grounds and neighborhood. You complete your primary circular journey by entering the gigantic living room with its soaring ceilings and stone fireplace. You can imagine yourself holding forth on the issues of the day with a glass of wine while supper is being prepared. A roaring fire is adding warmth to the convivial glow.
And the journey is only half over. Pass through the living room to right. You will see the great library, stocked with books, records and CD's spanning a collection life of nearly 50 years.
The bedrooms and computer room are just down the hall...
The laundry room is just to the left. The computer room is straight ahead. It is equipped with a Dell desktop computer with 2GB of RAM and scads of memory. It also has a wireless router, a scanner, and a color laser printer if you simply cannot leave business behind. Movies? You ask? Netflix is available (at no charge) for instant online viewing. And to continue the motif you noted upon entry to the house, the computer room desk is a 6 foot long black marble table filled with fossils The table originated in Morocco. The guest bedroom is just to the right with its own bath. And the Master Bedroom? Goodness! It is fully 28' X 21' with its own entrance to the patio. The bath? Ah. The Master Bath! A fully glassed and tiled shower, 3' X 9', handicapped accessible, with the adjoining lav area including his and hers basin areas.
This is truly a vacation home you will talk about for years to come.

We stayed at Don's wonderful residence while participating in the Bataan Death March. The home is spacious, clean, and comfortable - especially the bed in the master bedroom. The kitchen is extraordinarily well outfitted for any culinary delight. Gopal usually travels with his own kitchen implements but he took a gamble and left home without them due to the description of the kitchen, and he wasn't disappointed. We cooked on the grill outside and enjoyed our dinners and breakfasts on the patio table out back. The kitchen was well stocked with herbs, condiments, and a number of other food items that Don told us to help ourselves to. Don was very generous in allowing us full access to his computer during our stay. We will be returning to this home in the near future and taking my aging parents as the home is handicap friendly. Thanks Don! Wendy and Gopal

Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: I grew up in Pennsylvania and was a great fan of Western movies. I knew I had to live in the Southwest one day. My wife and I purchased this home just last year. We were drawn to it because it in the Southwest, has seclusion, is in a country club community and yet is close to town and the University I attended 51 years ago. I will be staying with my son through the winter.
Why the Owner Chose Las Cruces:
As previously noted, I love the Southwest, most specifically the desert. Additionally, the Incredible Organ Mountains call out to me daily to hike with my two dogs...an Old English Sheep Dog and a Brittany/Poodle mix.
The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
Seclusion, room for me and for my 'boys' (dogs) on one half acre, access to the desert and wonderful hiking, yet close to the city, shopping, and health care facilities.
