Overview

About the property

Near downtown. Private deck with views. Clean, quiet, new, luxurious adobe.

This 800 SF house sits on a hillside overlooking downtown and several mountain ranges. It is within a mile of downtown and its restaurants, shops, galleries, etc. It is walking distance to WNMU, libraries, museums, and the courthouse. It is one of three houses on a 2 1/2 acre parcel that straddles the city limits. The house sits back off the street and is backed by a wooded canyon full of wildlife. The east side of the house is on the edge of a hill, and the deck and master bedrooms have commanding views over hundreds of square miles. The house is private and quiet, with views of city lights at night to the east and dark star filled skies to the west. We see deer and quail regularly on the property, as well as over thirty types of birds. Javelinas, raccoons, foxes, and even a coati mundi have visited from time to time.

The house is an adobe that a mining family built. The house was extensively remodeled in late 2014 by the owners, who operate another very popular VRBO house as well. It has oak hardwood floors throughout the living and bedroom areas. The kitchen has granite tile counters and a large eat at counter. The bathroom is luxurious, with marble counters, slate flooring, and a multiple-setting showerhead. The bedrooms have brand new beds--a queen in the master and a full in the second bedroom--and feature fabulous Egyptian cotton sheets, warm blankets, and soft comforters. The kitchen is equipped with everything we could think of so that we could cook there just like at our own house, with all utensils, coffeemaker, microwave juicer/blender, toaster, etc.--and all of it is brand new, not our old extras or leftovers. The kitchen counters and the dining area counter are done in beautiful granite tile. We provide toiletries to get you started in case you forgot something, as well as coffee and creamer, sugar, spices, and many more items that will last you through a short stay or get you off to a good start if you are staying with us longer. The deck has tables and chairs and a propane grill for barbecuing. There is a flat screen tv with better than basic cable, wifi, and Netflix. The living room also has a high quality sofa. We can provide a crib upon request. Works by local artists adorn the walls.

About Gloria Harwood

The owners are a recently retired professional couple who have lived in Silver City since 1988. When this property came up for auction in 1996, the owners saw it's potential because of its unique setting and location and bought it. The owners live in one of the three homes on the property and are there if you need anything, but also respect your privacy and space. The houses are set apart from each other, adding to the feeling of space and privacy.

Gloria Harwood purchased this cottage in 1996

Why Gloria Harwood chose Silver City

Our property is close to downtown, yet feels so quiet and rural. Because of how close our hill comes to downtown, we are less than a mile up the street, but we are zoned rural. The three homes on this property sit on a large parcel for being this close to downtown, which gives them privacy and peace and quiet that can be hard to find this close in. The hillside setting provides great views day and night. If you like walking or mountain biking, the house is the closest in town to the Boston Hill trailhead, which is .3 mi. uphill and leads to miles of trails through city open space. There is also a running/walking track at an unused stadium 1/2 mile from the house that has amazing views east and west since it sits almost on the continental divide.

What makes this cottage unique

No other property has the combination of views and country setting with the convenience to downtown and all its attractions. In addition, this house is extensively remodeled, luxurious, and all new. The pictures speak a thousand words. It is a great value, provided by owners with a proven VRBO track record.

Lovely private rental just outside of town

  • 5 of 5

Everything we needed was supplied. The owners were available but very respectful of our privacy. We did need help operating the TV and Charles came right over and easily solved our problem.

It's a great location to take trips from or to just relax and sit back and enjoy the star filled skies on the private deck at night. We did both!

Well equipped, roomy and super clean

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay so much. Gloria is a helpful and welcoming owner who has created a cozy and well equipped cottage. Very comfortable and a private, quiet setting. The historic downtown isn't within walking distance, but the drive down the hill is quick and parking was never a problem. Everyone we met in town was exceedingly friendly too.

We found the cottage clean, comfortable and inviting. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The cottage overlooked the beautiful town of Silver City and the surrounding mountains were breathtaking. It was quiet and peaceful and met all our needs.

Location, hospitality, relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Cottage #3 is wonderful. Use the deck in the morning for coffee and a view or an evening BBQ on the gas grill. Coffee, creamer, waters, even a bottle of wine from our hostess was a wonderful touch. The cottage was super clean with some amenities like shampoo, conditioner, soap, lotion even a toothbrush and paste if you forgot it. Towels and bedding were new and clean. Such a relaxing place to enjoy the birds, views, friends and relax. Close enough to town to enjoy the Blues Festival yet far enough to see the stars at night. Loved the easy conversations with Gloria, our hostess. We'll be back!

We found what we were looking for- a clean, comfortable place to stay in Silver City. The kitchen was well supplied, the beds comfortable, and the place was "just right". We'll stay here again if we're in the area.
