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.

Getting to Know Silver City

  • 5 of 5
What a beautiful job the McCalmonts have done on this cottage. It is very comfortable and clean, and it's location makes it easy to either walk or drive. The washer and dryer are full size - a real plus when doing bed linens, etc. Our only complaint was no dining table and chairs and Faye has remedied that.

Silver City is one of the friendliest towns we know. As volunteers at Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument we used the town to shop and were always impressed by the people we met. Staying for a month only confirmed what we had experienced on day trips. The people are lovely.

And you are on the doorstop of the world's first designated wilderness area - the Gila, a place of extraordinary beauty and interest. A day trip to the Cliff Dwellings is well worth it.

We highly recommend the cottage and the McCalmonts and look forward to our next visit.

Great Rental

  • 5 of 5
This is a great little cozy get away. It is in a nice quiet neighborhood yet close to the downtown Silver City area, grocery shopping, restaurants, and other amenities . I like to cook and the kitchen was very clean and very well equipped, with a good usable layout and design. Even though it is located in what you could call a typical neighborhood, it felt private as if it were in a remote setting. It is very well maintained and felt very comfortable to be in.
It was way more than I expected for the price. I think it would most likely suit the needs of just about anyone. I was alone, but I think 4 or 5 people would be quite comfortable.
The owner was helpful, honest and up front with her information and communication. She was also quite prompt with replies to all of my inquires.
I spent a few days traveling around the area and a few days just hanging out around the house. It was quite pleasant.

Immaculate, Quiet and Centrally Located! Amazing Value!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed at the cottage for 3 nights starting 9/14/12. We were greeted with a bottle of wine and fresh loaf of bread. The pictures do not do it justice (Faye, next time I should bring my studio lighting and fix this)(: The cottage is immaculate and looks like it was just remodeled. Natural light is plentiful, the beds are comfortable and the NM decor is warm and inviting. Two or more couples could stay her comfortably with a queen bed, two twins and a fold-out couch. The flat screen TV, Blueray player and new gas grill are nice touches.

The location is central to everything, whether you are headed downtown, need to pick up groceries at Albertson's/Walmart or one of the health food stores, or are going on into the Gila. You CAN walk downtown, but it probably takes about 10 minutes. We found that it made more sense to drive, with ample free parking downtown and plenty of walking to do once you are there. The cottage is VERY quiet.

Faye is a great resource and was very helpful in answering all of our questions about Silver City and the surrounding area. We loved the cottage and will stay there again on our next visit.

Comfortable Vacation Home

I stayed at this beautiful vacation home for the Tour of the Gila with a friend. The house was very comfortable, nicely decorated, and well stocked with the basic necessities. The owners were great to work with, and we will definitely be back next year!

Quaint Casita

  • 5 of 5
The casita was perfect for me while I was on assignment for work. The house is clean and recently updated! I had friends who enjoyed their stay as well. The house is warm and cozy, and is on a quiet street, yet close to downtown. I was able to ride my bike easily to get groceries, to eat out and go to work! Great and accommodating owners! Highly recommend it for vacation or work.
