Silver City Cottage Rental Photos and Description
Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 3-4)
This charming 1 bedroom 1 bath cottage sits just outside the city limit, making it quiet and private, yet it is less than a mile straight down the street to the historic downtown. The house is one of three homes that sit on about two acres. It was extensively remodeled in the summer of 2012. The house is about 700 SF. It has oak hardwood floors, a completely redone bath, and a full kitchen. There are beautiful views from the property, overlooking downtown and the nearby mountains of the Gila and the Black Range. The Market street trailhead is a five minute walk up the hill, which leads to miles of open space hiking and mountain biking trails through an area of old mines, including one where the adventurous can enter an underground chamber that leads to tunnels going deep into the hillside.
The house backs up to a wooded arroyo where a family of quail lives, and deer regularly wander by and through the property. At night the place is dark and quiet, with the Milky Way visible from the front porch.
Western New Mexico University and the county courthouse are also less than a mile away.
