Beverly Thought of Everything!
We loved our three days in this charming little 1970s house in Silver City. Our host, Beverly, had thought of absolutely everything when she outfitted the house for visitors. The beds were very comfortable, the kitchen was completely equipped with anything you'd need, and the cable had all our favorite channels. The house was incredibly clean and there was even a laundry! Very convenient location, warm and cozy, and gracious host!
I am pleased to know that you were comfortable and had a pleasant visit while at the Cottage. Thank you for your complimentary review and would love to have you folks visit again on next trip to Silver City.
Very comfortable and clean
This is not a fancy place which is something I actually enjoy. I don't need hot tubs and designer furniture. But it is very clean (the cleanest vrbo I have ever stayed at), comfortable, has a lovely shower and good wifi. It s also inexpensive. It is about a fifteen minute walk to downtown, in a safe neighborhood (the dog people meet in the park across the street) and deer come to visit the apricot tree in the back yard. You can sit on the front porch and listen to the birds. I certainly do not need much more. Beverly is a lovely host and knew that we just wanted quiet which is what we received.
Thank you for this informative review. i am pleased that you enjoyed your stay and that my place met your needs. It was a pleasure having you and your family here and it is my hope if you are ever in Silver City again you will visit the cottage again.
Cozy and convenient.
The house was a very comfortable 2 bedroom/1bath rental. The house was clean and well equipped. No dishwasher but we didn't really need one. The historic downtown area and the Big Ditch Park are within walking distance. We found people in Silver to be very friendly.
Thank you for choosing my rental for your visit to Silver City. It was a pleasure to meet you. It pleases me that you were comfortable, and that you took the time to write a review
Clean, Convenient, Comfortable, Cozy, Close to old Silver City
This "cottage" is a spacious two-bedroom home with an open-concept kitchen/living area AND a laundry room located in a QUIET neighborhood near WNMU. Everything you need is provided...dishes, silverware, pots/pans, utensils, linens, internet, cable TV, cleaning supplies (okay, who wants to clean on vacation, right?). There is off-street parking behind the cottage - big plus in my opinion. It is located within walking distance (about 15 minutes) of old Silver City where a plethora of unique shops, restaurants and coffee houses can be found. If you're not into walking, there is ample parking in the old area.
The main highways (180, 15 and 90) are easy to access - especially 180! So much to see in the out-lying areas. If you crave the big stores, a WalMart and Albertsons are a short drive away.
This home is not new or modern. It's décor is a bit out-dated, but it is CLEAN, which in my book is far more important than modern. It is comfortable - nice sofa & chairs to relax in. Roomy dining table, front porch to enjoy your morning coffee or afternoon beverage. There is no dishwasher, but having a washer and dryer was far more important to us.
I would definitely stay here again. Good value, great location and like I said, CLEAN.
Thank you for your informative review of the "cottage" and the town of Silver City. It is always pleasing to me to know that my guest have enjoyed their stay. I strive to make your stay comfortable and see that you have everything you need. It was a pleasure meeting you folks and happy that you enjoyed your stay.
Lovely cozy cottage
Our hostess Beverly was charming and accessible. The "cottage" had the perfect spot to relax in the morning sun on the front porch . Location was just the perfect quiet spot for slumber after exploring historic Silver City. Enjoyed the Faywood Hotspring experience immensely.
Comfortable and Charming Silver City cottage
One of our favorites of the many vacation rentals we've stayed in. We've never before written a review, but we have to
Silver City is the home of Western New Mexico University. WNMU Museum advances understanding of the diverse cultural and artist heritages of Southwest New Mexico through research, collection, exhibition, interpretation, and exhibition; creates opportunities for visitors to experience authentic and significant artifacts and art firsthand in meaningful contexts; and supports and enriches the educational mission of Western New Mexico University. Permanent exhibitions feature the largest, most comprehensive permanent exhibition of prehistoric Mimbres Mogollon pottery and artifacts in the world, and include separate displays of basketry, footwear, cordage, stone tools, and stone and shell jewelry. Prehistoric pottery and artifacts of the Upland Mogollon, Casas Grandes, Salado, and Anasazi are also exhibited. The Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument is about 44 miles (71 km) north of Silver City, via the winding NM 15. At the monument, the remains of Indian inhabitants within five caves in a cliff can be found. They were built sometime between 1275 and 1300 AD by the Mogollon culture. In addition to ancient ruins, there are plenty of places to camp, hike and fish within the Gila Wilderness. There are several lakes in the area. Lake Roberts is 72-acre (290,000 m2) about 27 miles (43 km) north of Silver City on NM 15 near the NM 35 junction. Other lakes in the Silver City area include Bill Evans Lake, Snow Lake, Wall Lake, Bear Canyon Dam. Anglers have a choice of brown and rainbow trout, catfish and bass. In addition, several mountainous rivers can be found nearby. Some of note are the Gila River, Negrito Creek, San Francisco River, and Willow Creek. City of Rocks State Park is an area of interesting rock formations created by volcanic eruptions long ago. People can enjoy climbing the rocks, picnicking, and camping. The City of Rocks is located off NM 61. The Kneeling Nun is a natural rock formation located about 20 miles (32 km) to the east of Silver City along NM 152. Several legends have developed explaining its origin. ilver City's Historic Downtown is home to our booming Arts District, but you'll find dozens of distrinctive galleries and studios in communities across Grant County, including Hurley, Pinos Altos, the Mimbres Valley, Glenwood and more! Silver City is proud to be one of the 100 Best Art Towns in America, as judged by noted author John Villani. Southwest New Mexico has a reputation for being a birders’ paradise! The lush riparian river valleys, scenic mountains and canyons, proximity to Mexico and the surrounding lands of the Gila National Forest attract over 300 species. A half hour drive north of Silver City, in the Gila National Forest, the fluting melody of the Hermit Thrush mingles with distinctive calls of Painted Redstarts and Red-faced Warblers. The mix of oak and pine are a favorite place for Acorn Woodpeckers and the Bridled Titmouse. The lucky birder may find a Montezuma Quail. You’ll also find Hepatic, Summer, and Western Tanagers. Spring migrations begin in late April but birding can be rewarding all through the year. Over 339 species have been seen in Grant County. You’ll find intriguing desert canyons, cool riparian habitat, Pinon/Juniper woodlands, and Ponderosa and Spruce/Fir forests. We invite you come see our special birds. The “Birds of the Gila National Forest Check List” and maps are available at the Silver City Visitor Center, the Gila National Forest Supervisors office, district ranger stations, the Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument.”
