"This home was everything it was billed to be and then some. It's VERY secluded...so secluded in fact that we drove past the cutoff for it two or three times before we found it. However, once there, it gave us everything we wanted...quiet, spectacular views, nature, room for the dog to run, interesting surroundings to explore, and all the creature comforts of home. We took small side trips every day into Silver City, Pinos Altos and different parts of the Gila Wilderness area. Silver City offered food, art, crafts and all the other amenities that make a vacation fun. The wilderness area also offered us plenty of opportunities to hike with the dog. We went there with no schedule; woke up when we pleased, napped when we pleased, ate when we pleased, and two weeks later left limp as noodles. It was like a massage for the soul.
The house itself was meticulously designed to blend into the environment. It's carved right into the mountain; about a third of it is underground. When we went (in late August) the afternoon temps can get quite warm, but the house never became oppressively hot thanks to quilted, thermal shades that kept the direct sun out and the living quarters comfortably cool with fans. Four decks surround the house, so you can eat outside in shade any time of the day. However, warning: bring some bug spray. July and August are the rainy season and when we were there, there was no shortage of mosquitoes.
The home is exceptionally quiet and comfortable. The owner had quite a library about local history and I think my wife read every book during the two weeks we were there. I would go back again in a heartbeat and recommend this home to anyone healthy enough to hike in the surrounding area. The elevation of the house is at 6800 feet so the air is quite thin. The terrain is also very rugged – there are lots of steep trails in the surrounding national forest.
All in all, it was a great stay. We left with many fond memories."

"We had a wonderful time staying in this rental for a month during the holiday season. It was nice to have a rental that was so neat and clean. Even our guests commented on how nice and comfortable it was. The rental was also well appointed with furnishings and equipment. The access to the home is by a long paved sidewalk, so we didn't have to carry dirt into the house. The house reminded us of our own home, with its remote and scenic location on acreage. But if you want to enjoy the many activities in Silver City, it is less than 10 minutes away. The owners, Lisa and Eric, are very nice and anxious to do everything they can to make your stay a good one. They even shoveled the walks for us after a surprising snow storm. We are hikers, and the house is within minutes of many miles of trails, including the Boston Hill trail system in Silver City. We also explored two different trailheads where we could access the Continental Divide Trail. The property has plenty of room if you are travelling with an RV, as we are. It was nice to have easy access to our stuff. We also felt as though it was a very secure place, with an electric gate keeping unwanted people from just driving up into the property. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to return again someday!"

"Everything about this cottage was perfect...and the location especially quiet; you could hear a pin drop. The owner was pleasant, very accommodating, and extremely helpful with information about the area. She was available every time I called. I would highly recommend this cottage without any hesitation!"
