New Mexico Cabin Rentals offers this adorable Log Cabin Studio vacation cabin rental in southwest New Mexico providing access to endless hiking opportunities with free wi-fi near the Gila National Forest, the Gila River and Silver City NM. Relax on our 360 acres along nestled in the cottonwood trees along Bear Creek Canyon riparian area. Perfect for your next long weekend or full-on vacation holiday to get away from it all at an historic ranch headquarters. Contact us directly for summer and seasonal monthly rates. New Mexico Cabin Rentals and the Double E Ranch are adjacent to the 3 million acre Gila National Forest!

The Pinon log vacation cabin rental is our version of a Western studio-type apartment. At 430 square feet, this little cabin is big on easy comfort. Perhaps our personal favorite, the full kitchen features custom-designed Italian stone counter tops, a 4-burner stove top, microwave, two apartment-sized refrigerators, coffee maker, toaster, microwave, toaster oven, crock pot/slow cooker, blender, toaster, dishes, flatware, cooking pots, utensils and a dinning bar with stools where you can enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner.

The hotel quality queen bed beckons you to sleep in just a little longer than usual, all snuggled-up in the luxurious Egyptian cotton linens. When you do finally get up, the radiant, in-floor heating will keep your toes nice and warm on chilly mornings and, if you are here during the warmer months, you can count on the Air Conditioner to keep you cool!

The living area in this quaint little gem features a comfortable Italian leather love seat and easy chair with plenty of throw pillows. There is a chest of drawers and vintage cedar armoire. This cabin also boasts a full bath, with shower and tub, and for the evenings when the star-studded sky isn’t quite enough entertainment, there is also a TV/DVD library.

If your idea of relaxation is being exhausted from exploring all nature has to offer, you’ll want to stay at the Piñon Log Cabin.

The Pinon Log Cabin really is at the end of the road. From the covered tin-roof deck, you can enjoy views of pastures filled with grazing horses, spy roadrunners, jackrabbits, hawks, deer wild turkey and javelinas, and take in some of the most stunning sunsets and star-filled night skies you could ever imagine. If you sleep better without the glow of city lights and prefer the night sounds of nature to the hum of humanity, then you are going to love the Piñon Log Cabin.

As with the other New Mexico Cabin Rentals, The Pinon Log Cabin provides you the opportunity to experience a taste of life on a southwestern New Mexico ranch, explore a diverse ecological region, and encounter the recent and ancient past up close. Enjoy the easy pace of a hot summer day on the ranch as you explore the compound and acquaint yourself with the horses. Look for any one of the hundreds of breeds of birds who call the Gila Desert home as you summit Turtle Rock or explore the boxes and canyons of the Double E Ranch. Trace the path of the Mimbres Indians who lived along Bear Creek and the Gila River 1100 years ago. Uncover their history through pottery pieces, ancient tools, pictographs and remnants of stone dwellings which can still be readily found. Introduce yourself to the more recent legendary characters who roamed the hills, mountains and towns in this area, including Billy the Kid, Geronimo, and Ben Lily. Fill your days and evenings with whatever pleases you because out here, that’s just about the only person you’ll have to answer to.

About Veronica Williams

Debbie and Alan Eggleston are living their life-long dream! A former Admin Assistant, and a retired  Airline Pilot,�� Debbie and Alan have both had a long-standing passion for Cowboys, Horses, and the Old West. 

In 1996 they were  lucky enough to find the Double E Ranch in Gila, New Mexico, with over 30,000 acres of spectacular vistas! The Ranch adjoined the 3 million acre Gila National Forest and Gila Wilderness area. They established Double E Guest Ranch and for 18 years they shared this incredible ranching lifestyle and stunning country with folks from all over the world.

Now retired and living a pace that is a little slower, they continue to open their doors and offer folks a unique opportunity to explore this amazing part of New Mexico by providing comfortable, fully furnished, self catered cabins, plenty of maps to help you navigate your way through nature and history.

Why Veronica Williams chose Gila

New Mexico Cabin Rentals are a haven for the unexpected - nature, colors, textures, wildlife. It’s an independent attitude. A way of life: more relaxed where you create your own schedule, see amazing vistas, have unexpected experiences, a direct immediate connection with nature, a pathway to the past . It’s adventure in its truest form. And, it's waiting for you at Double E Ranch Guesthouses!

Welcome to Double E Ranch Vacation Guesthouse Rentals! We are situated along the southwestern edge of the legendary Gila National Forest, just 30 miles from historic Silver City, New Mexico.

Double E Ranch Vacation Guesthouse Rentals was inspired by our desire to share our exceptionally beautiful hidden valley location along Bear Creek, literally 'at the end of the road'. We directly adjoin a 6500 acre State of New Mexico Game and Fish designated wildlife preserve, and are a short drive to 3 million acres of the Gila National Forest. The southwestern lifestyle, our love for ranching and the mild year round climate in southwestern New Mexico is our reason for being here.

For 18 years, Double E Ranch was a working cattle, horse and guest ranch. The specialty at Double E Ranch was providing our guests with the very unique opportunity to experience the undiluted, real sensations of southwestern New Mexico ranch life. The original 'bunk house' built in the 1940's and 125 year old ranch headquarters have been used to house visitors from all around the world and are in the process of being refurbished and upgraded, and will soon be included as a guesthouse option.

Now retired, Debbie and Alan continue to offer you a unique opportunity to experience a taste of life on a southwestern New Mexico ranch, explore a diverse ecological region, meet the recent and ancient past up close. Thousands of years ago the Mimbres Indians lived along Bear Creek and the Gila River. Pottery pieces, ancient tools, pictographs and remnants of stone dwellings can be readily found.

What makes this cabin unique

Mild year round weather - not too hot in the summer; comfortable sunny days in the winter with very little rain or snow - southwest New Mexico provides unlimited mind staggering vistas, spectacular mountain views, sharp blue skies and billions of star filled nights. We are blessed to be situated along the western drainage of the Piños Altos Mountain Range (Bear Creek) which empties directly into the Gila River, and flows all the way to the great Colorado River. Our ranch adjoins 6200 acres of State of New Mexico land that is managed by the NM Game and Fish. Beyond is the 3 million acre Gila National Forest and Gila Wilderness area.

Our comfortable cabins bring guests closer to this rare experience, providing them the opportunity to experience this unique, rarely explored area.

"Visit New Mexico" says: "Both the wild and the west still survive and thrive in the southwestern New Mexico Gila National Forest region. Ancient cave dwellings one day, fine dining the next, and all sandwiched around some unmatched biking opportunities... And we should probably mention the classic old west saloon, and the characters who populate the barstools inside".

Dark, dry skies across much of Grant County make for great star gazing almost everywhere. City of Rocks State Park and the Gila Wilderness are two great options, as is almost any remote spot in the county!

Birding is exceptional in the Gila area. Approximately 339 bird species have been sighted. The numerous species of birds found is largely related to the diverse ecological habitat found on the Gila and location on a migratory flight path.

Hiking trails are numerous. An extensive system of trails offers pleasant hikes in quiet solitude through cool forested mountains or along shady streams. Maps: Gila National Forest and Wilderness maps are available at the Gila National Forest office, 3005 E. Camino Del Bosque, Silver City, NM 88061, and at District Ranger Stations

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed our stay in the Agave Cabin. Thank you for welcoming us to your ranch and allowing us to roam around. It made it feel like a home away from home. Our dogs had a great time, too and were tuckered out each night! I hope we can make our way back sometime soon! Regards, (from Austin, TX)

Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our time here. The ranchers were all friendly. We talked with one of the cowboys who introduced us to all of the horses and Debbie and Chris made us feel right at home. We star gazed and the ranch is a great jumping off point for all the hikes around the area. I highly recommend this cozy cabin and the beautiful surroundings!

Beautiful and Peacefull setting!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the cabin. The cabin was a great value and we stayed 3 nights. Each night was quiet and comfortable and we got good nights sleep, and I dont always sleep well when I travel. The bed is very comfy. The air was cool and fresh down in the little box canyon the cabins sit in, we walked around the property which is scenic and well maintained, visited the little creek that runs through the canyon and enjoyed the giant cottonwoods down by the creek. The kitchen had all we needed to fix breakfast every day and we used our firestick for TV entertainment with the wifi in the evenings. The cabin is well appointed with comfortable furniture (this is important to me, as I have a bad back and cannot just simply 'sit' on a bed). Deborah and Alan were wonderful and considerate hosts and were attentive and made sure we had everything we needed to make our stay perfect. We used the cabin as a starting point for our 'local' adventures to the Catwalk in Glenwood, Silver City, and the Gila. I highly recommend and would visit again!

Peaceful cozy cabin

  • 5 of 5

This is the place for a quiet peaceful get away. Hiking is abundant near and short drive. The cabin was very cozy and had everything needed. The front porch with 2 rockers was our hangout spot. Star gazing was amazing , the meteor shower happened this weekend and a short drive up the hill for the most amazing sunset. Just be reminded that groceries are 45 minutes away. Once we had them we cooked some fabulous meals and enjoyed a glass of wine on the porch. If you don’t need action this is your place

Peaceful retreat in the mountains!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn’t have asked for a nicer way to spend a couple nights in the Gila National forest. We were very lucky to get availability and the price was very reasonable! The cabin was outstanding; from the complete kitchen facilities to the comfort of the bed, relaxing on the rocking chair on the porch and the hospitality of our hosts! We were able to enjoy a 4 hour hike up and along the ridge of Turtle Mountain just steps from our cabin door. There were three other cabins nearby but we had complete privacy. The road to the property was a slow 4 miles from the village of Gila but the serenity compensates for it. Debbie, our hostess, advised us as to what we would need so we didn’t need to leave the cabin. A big thank you to her and her family for the thoughtfulness that they put in to ensure we had a good experience.

Car: necessary

A cozy 1 bedroom log cabin with covered deck and nearly 430 sf. Nestled among the cottonwood and sycamore trees along Bear Creek, you'll find a little bit of New Mexico magic. Easy access to the legendary Gila National Forest, hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding. Climate is comfortable in every season. Winters are especially nice for visitors coming from northern states. It's not unusual for January - March to have daytime temps between 55 - 68 degrees F.

Feel free to walk about. Several of our cabins, barn and most of the corrals are original and have been in constant use for over 130 years. We continue to work hard at staying true to the historic 'feel' of ranch as it was in New Mexico back in the late 1890's. We are excited to announce that we are currently upgrading the 'old ranch house', built in the late 1890's or early 1900's. Original architecture with some very unique features, including high ceilings, fireplace in the bedroom, claw foot bathtub and screened wrap around porch with rockers and swing will take you back in time long past.

After your first creek crossing you'll find a privately protected riparian area that runs for several miles along Bear Creek. Wild life is abundant, you can spot hundreds of native and migratory birds, deer, brown bear, and Rocky Mountain Big Horn Sheep. At night you'll see the Milky Way spread across a clear, dark New Mexico sky.

Debbie or Alan are making "self check in" an option. When available, they will greet you, show you to your cabin and answer any immediate questions you might have. A booklet of pertinent information along with cabin keys will be inside. It is likely you will see Alan working one of his many horses at the ranch. His passion is training well bred quarter horses for such disciplines as cattle work, reined cow horse and cowboy mounted shooting. As an expert horseman, he has a wealth of information, tips and techniques he is always willing to share. We have plenty of additional room for parking trailers so bring your own horse! It's the very best way to experience this amazing part of the southwest.

Using your cabin as your 'home away from home', you can easily access some of the most beautiful sites in New Mexico and the southwest, including Silver City, Glenwood, Las Cruces, Carlsbad Caverns, Ruidoso and Santa Fe to name just a few easy day trip options . Interesting art galleries, museums, restaurants are just a short drive from the ranch. Day trips to either Arizona or Texas are convenient, with plenty to see and experience.

House Rules: Our pace is slower, making it easy to unplug from the stressful rush of urban life. No watches, clocks, time schedules or traffic gridlock. Activities happen at your own pace. Feel like a hike up "Turtle Mountain" to explore Apache Corral? We don't have signs reminding you to "stay on the trail". You make our own trails. Maybe indulge in a good book or a nap? It won't take long for you to reconnect with your own natural rhythm.

Pets are ok, but we do ask that you discuss it with Debbie prior to making a reservation. As a ranch, we have horses, cattle, ducks, a few chickens and our own dogs. As such, all our ranch animals understand appropriate behavior.

Sorry -- no smoking inside your cabin. Sitting outside on your own private deck to indulge is very pleasant. If you open a gate, please remember to close it, as well. Knock before your enter. We respect your privacy and hope you will reciprocate.

Grant County is still very rural. Ranching remains a very important part of the local economy. A few miles from your cabin, the Gila River flows all the way to Arizona and beyond. Canoe-ing, tubing, fishing or simply listening to the water move are all easy to do. Silver City has some interesting art galleries and restaurants and is just a 30 mile drive.

Silver City has a public transport van (Corre Caminos) making stops all throughout town for a small fee, as well as a small, short flight commuter air service (Boutique Air) to Albuquerque or Phoenix where you can make connections to anywhere. El Paso (3 hours away) has a very nice International airport with easy access, easy parking. Phoenix International Airport is 5 hours drive.
