About Faye or Floyd McCalmont

We have lived in Silver City since moving our family here from Seattle, WA 20 years ago. We love this community and are excited about introducing others to this beautiful region of southwest New Mexico! There is always something fun happening, beautiful places to visit and lots of history. Grant County is truly an eclectic place with friendly, creative and interesting people. We invite you to check it out.

Faye or Floyd McCalmont purchased this house in 2010

Why Faye or Floyd McCalmont chose Silver City

Silver City is a unique and wonderful place that draws creative and interesting people to it. We wanted to own a small intimate home where visitors could feel welcome while experiencing the beauty of the surrounding area. The central location of the house makes it the perfect jumping off point for day trips or evening events.

What makes this house unique

It' a short walk to restaurants and shops as well as the park where many events are held thoughout the year. The house is small and intimate, warm and inviting - a perfect retreat for those wishing to escape into a welcome and convenient environment. Five local coffee shops, bakery, deli, museums, murals, art galleries and studios make for wonderful day trips.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My son and I found the charming house to e a perfect fit. This was a great vacation in Silver City. Within minutes to shops, grocery stores, hospital, university, gym and senior center and so much more!

The location is pleasant and the birds each morning chirping and seen nearly every day - we also enjoyed the rock patio. Finding trails to walk and even a hot springs for a soak.

Now seeing the city blooming with beautiful trees! We have taken photos of the house and the various places.

Thank you both for the relaxing, comfortable home away from home.

Beautifully maintained and so comfortable:

from the comfy linens to the wonderful selection of books! The kitchen cabinets, built- in closet and drawers make unpacking and packing an easy job.

The neighborhood is quiet, family-friendly, safe and great for evening walks.

Clean, quiet and very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The kitchen had everything we needed and a big fridge! Very comfortable furniture, bed, and quiet. Nice neighborhood to walk around in and easy walk to downtown.

We loved the shade trees in the backyard, the working air conditioners in each room, and the BBQ with outdoor table and chairs.

Amazing Bungalow

  • 5 of 5

We spent the month of March here. The home is clean, comfortable, tastefully decorated, and centrally located to the historic Old Town, great hiking in the Gila National Forest, and museums.

The owners were very accommodating.

We had a great time and hope to return.

The World

Convenient, comfortable and peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

Cleanliness: Excellent. If you're fussy like me, you'll appreciate how clean it is. We're on a long trip and have many other rentals we can compare to. This one is a standout in the clean department.

Location: Excellent. We walked or bicycled to Silver's cute downtown daily.

Noise level: Excellent. Close to a busy (during the day) road but thick adobe walls ensure we got a good night's sleep. Not bad in the backyard either. We strung a hammock between the trees and took many naps there!

Bed: Excellent. Firm and supportive. We used only the queen so can't comment on the twins. Only complaint: it's a memory foam mattress and it was too warm for me. These are common in vacation homes unfortunately.

Homeyness: Excellent. So many rentals are furnished with garage sale castoffs and feel like college crash pads but this house is tastefully decorated like a home. We appreciated how comfortable it is.

Landlord responsiveness: Excellent. Faye and Floyd responded quickly and thoroughly to every concern.

Amenities: Fair. Most amenities such as the vacuum and AC were good but some kitchen amenities could use some additions and updating. Suggestions: 1) Sharpen the knives. This is an oversight in many rentals so we now travel with our own knives. Perhaps landlords think dull knives are safer. Actually more accidents are caused by dull knives. 2) Replace frying pans. Most pans were warped or scratched. Again, a common rental lapse. We now travel with our own pan. 3) Purchase more silverware and large utensils. We purchased some additional inexpensive sets and some spatulas while there to make up the scarcity. 4) Bonus points for a food processor. The blender over processes pesto and gazpacho.

We and our cat enjoyed the resting deer in the backyard at night/early morning and the many birds! She loved sitting in the little hallway wall hole.
