About The Owner

The owner, Bruce, was a factory worker, logger, newspaper reporter, PR flunkie, and unpublished fiction writer before he discovered computers and lost all interest in reality. He spent 12 years in a computer fog, but gave it all up to move to the Silver City area in 1999. He is now in recovery, but does find time to manage an office building and a few other business projects in town.

The Owner purchased this house in 1999

Why The Owner chose Silver City

Bruce lived in this beautiful house for five years before turning it into a vacation rental. If you don't book it, he probably will. It's a sacred place that he likes to share with others.

What makes this house unique

This is the next to last house on the phone and electric lines. Beyond us are a couple of tiny communities and a hundred miles of wilderness. The nearest mall is about 90 miles away. It's a little inconvenient to get here, but worth the trouble.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you so much for providing this beautiful mountain retreat and for sharing your art and international treasures with us. Thanks again!

The most restful vacation I've ever had

The most restful vacation I've ever had
  • 5 of 5
This home was everything it was billed to be and then some. It's VERY secluded...so secluded in fact that we drove past the cutoff for it two or three times before we found it. However, once there, it gave us everything we wanted...quiet, spectacular views, nature, room for the dog to run, interesting surroundings to explore, and all the creature comforts of home. We took small side trips every day into Silver City, Pinos Altos and different parts of the Gila Wilderness area. Silver City offered food, art, crafts and all the other amenities that make a vacation fun. The wilderness area also offered us plenty of opportunities to hike with the dog. We went there with no schedule; woke up when we pleased, napped when we pleased, ate when we pleased, and two weeks later left limp as noodles. It was like a massage for the soul.

The house itself was meticulously designed to blend into the environment. It's carved right into the mountain; about a third of it is underground. When we went (in late August) the afternoon temps can get quite warm, but the house never became oppressively hot thanks to quilted, thermal shades that kept the direct sun out and the living quarters comfortably cool with fans. Four decks surround the house, so you can eat outside in shade any time of the day. However, warning: bring some bug spray. July and August are the rainy season and when we were there, there was no shortage of mosquitoes.

The home is exceptionally quiet and comfortable. The owner had quite a library about local history and I think my wife read every book during the two weeks we were there. I would go back again in a heartbeat and recommend this home to anyone healthy enough to hike in the surrounding area. The elevation of the house is at 6800 feet so the air is quite thin. The terrain is also very rugged – there are lots of steep trails in the surrounding national forest.

All in all, it was a great stay. We left with many fond memories.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your kind review! We are very happy we were able to provide both of you with a retreat that was a "massage for the soul”. Those words really capture our intention in making Agave House and the surrounding property available to others.

Art, architecture and nature at its most beautiful, seamlessly merged, spiritually blessed. So well done. Easy hiking trails with majestic views. All just a stroll off the back patio. The perfect place to decompress and feel one with nature.

The perfect setting

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed everything about our stay. The surroundings were beautiful and the house provided all we needed. We could relax in the beautiful setting, see the cliff dwellings and hot springs, or hike the many trails.
