Cozy and romantic, this private guest house is situated on the bank of the Rio Grande River. The private flagstone patio has its own custom natural hot water mineral tub, which overlooks the rio and the sacred Turtleback Mountain. The home is located in the historic hot springs district of TorC, which has recently had much national media coverage due to its quirky retro atmosphere and the nearby future spaceport. Due to the unobstructed expansive views of diverse desert chaparral and Turtleback Mt., one gets the feeling of remoteness; however, within three blocks, one may discover art galleries, coffee shops, restaurants, local grocery, banks, antique, junk and book stores. While watching out the wall of windows in the Great Room, one can observe wildlife such as beavers, coyotes, raccoons, bobcat, and a never ending stream of migratory birds that use the Rio Grande as their super highway, while the Turtleback turns crimson in the late afternoon sun. This true adobe home is furnished with antiques, local art, and oriental rugs. The fully equipped kitchen, with copper farm sink and upgraded appliances is all you need to cook a gourmet meal with the world renown Hatch green chile. Hatch is only a half hour’s drive away. Come to tube, kayak, golf, swim, hike, fish, explore, bike, or just relax and take in the view. There is something for everyone.

Great place to relax and rejuvenate.
Really nice guest house on the river with the hot springs right outside your door. Everything that we could have needed was there, and very well done. So nice to be able to take our Black Lab with us.
Can't think of anything that was not just perfect!
And Sally fit us in with short notice, that too was great.
Better than advertised - TOC is an off the beaten track place and the Cassita is a jewel within!
Great place to stage tours into the desert, birding, Space Port, even a day tour to Silver City! The bed was super, we sleep great. And the views over the river fantastic! Did not use the hot spring pool but it is there and works - read the instruction book early in your stay! The bathroom works well but a bit tight even as its quaint character appeals and compliments the place! Thanks, we have already recommended it to some friends and one artist!
One of my most enjoyable birthdays spent soaking up the healing waters of the hot springs while enjoying the bird life and the spectacular views of Turtle Back mountain. It is truly a hidden gem and wonderful hosts!
Great location on the river, great little town with all the amenities you need, great casita (very well appointed), and great owners (Sally & Ken). Would definitely recommend and would like to return someday.

This place was awesome! We loved the ambiance of the area. The Casita was very private and relaxing. We enjoyed every minute of our stay. Thanks, for a wonderful few days wish it could have been longer!
