About John Moeller and Barbara Hatch

We have been building custom homes for over 25 years in NM and have for many years enjoyed getting away to TorC for relaxation and the fabulous waters.

John Moeller and Barbara Hatch purchased this cottage in 2007

Why John Moeller and Barbara Hatch chose New Mexico

This casita is part of an historic group of buildings in the heart of downtown that at one time consisted of 13 units. We are in the process of renovating the units to become 6 luxurious homes-away-from-home.

Truth or Consequences boasts some of the most fabulous hot springs around, with 10 spa facilities right in town. Originally named Hot Springs, the city changed its name to Truth or Consequences, the title of a popular NBC Radio program. In 1950, Ralph Edwards, the host of the radio quiz show Truth or Consequences, announced that he would air the program from the town that renamed itself after the show; Hot Springs won the honor. Edwards visited the town during the first weekend of May for the next 50 years. This event was called 'Fiesta' and included a beauty contest, a parade, and a stage show. The city still celebrates Fiesta each year during the first weekend of May. The parade generally features area celebrities such as the Hatch Chile Queen. Fiesta also features a dance in Ralph Edwards Park.

The Rio Grande runs right through town and in the summer, you can float the river on an inner tube or small raft to cool off. When the weather is a bit cooler, Turtleback Mountain offers a medium-difficulty hike and some spectacular views all the way to Elephant Butte Lake to the north and beyond.

Exceptional Stay

  • 5 of 5

We are just ending a month's stay here and echo everything that previous reviewers have said. We moved in and immediately were at home. Everything was here to require us to shop only for groceries. The location is great. The casita is perfect for a couple. Nothing else to say other than if we ever return to T or C we will stay here.

Three month winter home.

  • 5 of 5

John and Barbara provided us with very good accomadations for our three month stay in T or C. It was clean with lots of space, and an excellent kitchen area with all the appliances you would need. There is access to many of the restaurants and shops close by. T or C has an interesting history due to the hot water springs and the Elephant Butte Dam and lake, and the near by ghost towns.

An amazing oasis in an otherwise dusty, gritty area!

  • 5 of 5

My expectations for TorC and New Mexico as a whole are rather low. Places that look good in pics are usually shot from the best angle. This spot however, was the exception. Tucked away in a little book downtown, the place really does not belong. It's clean, new and very modern. The wifi is quick, lighting is excellent. The place is extremely clean and comfortable! I hope to make this place a regular stay on our trips to TorC!
