This unique location puts you away from it all. Use the space for a retreat, family vacation, or wilderness sabbatical.

Interaction with guests
Usually neither my husband Zack nor I are in the neighborhood while guests are in the house, it is possible you may meet him when you arrive. I am available by message or cell in Silver City, 90 minutes away, and we have many neighbors who are helpful in the event of an emergency.
Other things to note
I always ask every guest to confirm the location to make sure you understand how remote the cabin is. To see the exact location of the house and the village of Gila Hot Springs, look up "23 Airstrip Rd, Mimbres, NM" on geegle maps. (When you search for the village name you find out that geegle doesn't know everything). It is 90 minutes from Silver City and any services.
Unless you are requesting to stay for 3 or more weeks, please don't send a reservation request more than 3 months in advance. I probably don't yet know if I will want to use the house before then, and I do prefer to hold out for long-term rentals.
We expect the house to be in excellent condition when you arrive and when you leave. We expect that you've cleaned up the dishes put books away that you've looked at. I shouldn't need to say this, but please don't steal the movies or books - use only while staying at the cabin! Please don't start laundry, it may be a day or two before we get up there and it will need to be re-washed by then; if you feel compelled, you can leave soiled linens in the laundry basket by the washer. (It's always appreciated to leave a tip for the cleaning crew.)
We allow well behaved dogs, but please note that the perimeter fencing of the property is for horses, not dogs. We ask that you toss into the forest any dog poop that may be in the visible yard around the house.
Please be respectful that this is a dry environment and fires can easily be started by an errant fire or cigarette ember. Make sure everything is put dead out. You can see the result of when a camper didn't drown their fire and the fire burned the river corridor not far upstream from Gila Hot Springs - SCARY! Refuse from smoking should be thrown away in the outside trash cans.
