Photos and Description of the Silver City vacation cottage rental

An Architects Personal, Generously Sized, One Bedroom One Bathroom Getaway

Located just a three block stroll from the WNMU campus on the Northern edge of town (and next to our other vacation rental: Casa Serena)...this roomy, light filled one bedroom, one bathroom vacation home feels like a 'sky house' and was the inspiration for the Spanish name 'Casa Cielo'. Perched on a ridge with great views out to the New Mexico high- country, this quiet neighborhood on the edge of town offers the convenience of 'in town' living with the feel of a mountain retreat. Native plantings surround it and a driveway loops up and around it with an off-street parking. Designed by its architect/owner in the mid-fifties, the simple and efficient plan includes a masonry fireplace with a built in convection heater for winter comfort in the generous living room. The large bedroom is provided with ample built-in storage. A well-lit 'galley' type kitchen is flanked by a separate dining room on one side and a large laundry/craft room on the other.

Casa Cielo is provided with the following amenities:

ONE BEDROOM...provided with a comfortable queen size bed, desk, love seat and ample built in storage for clothes and 'gear'.

SOFA provided in the living room for guests (ask us about our visitors policy)

BATHROOM...shower or enjoy a relaxing soak in the tub...keep your toiletries organized in the generous cabinets and drawers in the adjacent hallway storage area.

KITCHEN...A generous galley style kitchen comes complete with cookware, dishes, coffee maker, micro wave, gas range/oven and full sized refrigerator.

LAUNDRY ROOM...a well lit room with a full sized washer and dryer and plenty of room for storage





FIREPLACE...(ask about our fireplace policy)

COVERED PORCH...and patio with great mountain views

AIR CONDITIONING...window mounted refrigerated AC units in the living room and bedroom along with ceiling fans in the living room and bedroom

HEATING...provided by central forced air heat

CLEANING SUPPLIES....vacuum, ironing board and cleaning supplies are provided

At a 6000 ft. elevation, Silver City has pleasant high desert summers... rarely hitting the triple digits that our low desert neighbors see for weeks at a time. Expect refreshing 'monsoon' rains in mid to late summer with plenty of sunshine... and nights that are always cool throughout the summer. Winters are mild with occasional snows that melt quickly in the strong sunlight from clear blue New Mexico skies. Located at the Southern end of the Continental Divide high country, a quick trip to the North gets you up into the Spruce, Fir and Ponderosa pine high country...head South and you're in rolling grass-lands and cattle country... complete with 'real deal' working cattle ranches. We are an outdoor enthusiasts paradise with the Gila National Forrest to explore, including the Gila Cliff Dwellings and the Gila River (the last free flowing one in New Mexico). The Glenwood 'Catwalk' is a favorite day trip... and for hikes around town there is the 'Boston Hill' trail system. The historic WNMU campus is a fun evening stroll (don't miss their Mimbres pottery collection at the campus museum) ...and for a great day hike, try the Gomez peak trail at the end of Little Walnut road. Local wines can be tasted at Esperanza Winery in a beautiful Mimbres Valley setting...and a one hour trip to Deming will take you to two great wineries: Luna Rosa and Saint Clair. Another Deming favorite of ours in 'Diaz Produce' near the intersection of Hwy. 26 and Hwy 180...a real working farm with great watermellons and at harvest time is awash with the smell of barrel roasted chilli peppers. Get a copy of 'Hiking the Gila' to plan your hikes and browse events and activities in our area.

Although Silver City can sometime seem bursting with almost to much activity and events, it can also sometimes seem almost deserted...Sundays and Mondays are pretty quiet. We are truly blessed with at least a dozen (good to great) restaurants in the compact, walkable historic old-town area. More old-town businesses are experimenting with Sundays such as Diane's restaurant with their 'open mic' Sunday. We own the 'Tatiana Maria Gallery and lighting' and welcome you to stop by whether you stay with us or chose another Silver City vacation home.
