Our property comprises 83+ acres and is part of a working ranch of over 2,000 acres. You can walk along Bear Creek on our property. And just up the road you have the Gila Wilderness - 3.5 million acres of true wilderness.
Las Palomas Guesthouse is a peaceful, 2-bedroom (queen beds), 2 bathroom, splits A/C, private guesthouse, built for our family and friends, now shared with new friends as our guests. We are eco-friendly (solar panels feed the grid). Our deep-well water is pure and perfect. We are dog friendly--only on request please--especially if their owners are responsible and well behaved.
This is a private guesthouse w/ private hot tub, deep-well pure clean water, Wi-Fi, Internet YouTubeTV, propane BBQ, organic breakfast fixin's in a well appointed kitchen. Dog friendly, eco-friendly, we even have a small washer/dryer.
A vacation destination! Make yourselves right at home! Nuestra casita es su casita!
Supermarkets (Coop, Albertsons, WalMart, etc.) are in Silver City, 25 or so miles away, or even farther afield. We are a frontier community and we learn to keep our pantries stocked and our gas tanks full.
Airports: El Paso 3+ hours away. Tucson 3+ hours away. Phoenix 5+ hours away. Albuquerque 5+ hours away. Silver City/Grant County has a small airport with flights connecting to Albuquerque and Phoenix. Enterprise will leave you a rental car at the airport. Simple.
The train stops in Lordsburg and Deming. They must have rentals...?
Access to the guesthouse is after a 2.4 mile dirt open ranch road and then a 1 mile dirt driveway. Cars with very low clearance should proceed carefully (but normally there is no issue).
We have picked up cyclists from the "pavement meets dirt" in Gila. Off road skills are needed for motorcyclists. Mopeds are iffy. No skates.
We will accept parachutists, hikers, and maybe horseback enthusiasts, but we do not have a corral and there are other horses on the ranch.
Drones are fun here!
In Spring, the air is crisp, the walks exciting, and, with dogs, always an adventure.
After exploring the 800 year old Gila Cliff Dwellings, climb down carefully!
