MARKET STREET COTTAGE

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.

A Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Living in Tucson (3 1/2 hours away), we had been to Silver City a number of times over the years for weekend trips (particularly in the summer, when Silver City is often 15 degrees cooler), but were getting tired of staying at the same dreary motels on Rt. 180.

We looked at a couple of B & B's, but we liked the description of Gloria and Charles's "casita" (actually, a 700+ sq. ft. house---much bigger than a typical casita), so we decided to take a chance.

We're glad we did.

Not only was the casita perfect for our needs (and we were there for a full week), but Gloria and Charles were the perfect hosts. On the one or two occasions we needed something done (very minor things, by the way, like replenishing the bird feeders outside the kitchen windows, or explaining how to get the TV working), they were there in minutes, and resolved the "problem" right away.

The location was great for our purposes---a one-mile walk or drive up the hill from the historic downtown, and a third of a mile down the hill from from some great hiking trails. The casita was quiet at night---and in the daytime, too, for that matter---and fully-equipped for either a short or a lengthy stay.

We will be back.

Owner's Response: Thank you both so much for staying at the cottage. You did so much while here. I need to try some of the local things you informed me about, like Syzygy Tile tours and a kobe beef burger downtown. Cool! It was so nice visit with you. See you next time. Thanks again.
Sincerely,
Gloria

Delightful!

We had a very pleasant stay and loved the cozy apartment and the beautiful location. Watching the bird feeder from the kitchen window a big plus! And the owner was a wonderful host, very attentive, helpful and charming. Would definitely stay there again.

Owner's Response: Thank you Dr., To have a world renowned, research scientist from another country studying birds in our forest is an honor. The Gila Forest is said to have over 300 species of birds, so we enjoy attracting some for our visitors to enjoy from the kitchen window. It was a pleasure meeting you and your two college students. We hope to see you again.

Gloria & Charles

  • 5 of 5
Pros: Super quiet and cozy. Beatutiful views. Perfect amenties. Washer/dryer such an awesome perk. Loved the decor and location. Main bed was perfectly even at 8 months pregnant. Owner was super sweet! She even had toys ready for our toddler!

Great Silver City home!

  • 4 of 5
Gloria and Charles are fantastic hosts. They live in an adjacent home on the property, and totally respected my privacy, yet were readily available for anything I needed. This home is on a great property, just out of town, but just close enough. It is comfortable with all of the amenities (well stocked kitchen, wifi, Netflix, stereo, washer/dryer, etc). Perfect for a couple with a child or two. Would be a bit snug for more than 2 adults. Since I did some cooking, the only things I would have liked to have that weren't there, were dishwasher and garbage disposal. Otherwise, kitchen had everything! I would definitely stay there again.

Owner's Response: Thank you. We'll see you next time you bike race here. GOOD JOB! I thought about a dishwasher and disposal but the kitchen sink plumbing is used for grey water to water the oak and walnut trees. We respect our guests privacy and don't notice them much because they are in the home in the back.Thanks again.
Sincerely,
Gloria

Adorable place to stay.

  • 5 of 5
We are so glad we stumbled on this gem while in town for a college sporting event. Gloria and Charles were easy to work with and so helpful. We even toured their property with Charles before we left. The cottage is adorable and the property at the foot of the mountains was fabulous. I couldn't stop watching all the birds at the feeders outside the kitchen window. Gloria has thought of everything to make your stay comfortable when you arrive. My husband enjoyed the mix of new and antiques which made the place cozy. One of the best places we have stayed.

Great spot for exploring the greater Silver City area

  • 5 of 5
Janet and I enjoyed our three nights in this lovely, fully equipped cottage. Clean, neat, wifi and TV that worked, a comfortable bed and a nice kitchen. We were most happy with our stay and recommend it to all.
Some nice dining spots nearby including The Curious Kumquat ( a gotta do if you are a foodie)

Silver City is located at 6000 feet at the edge of the Gila forest. It is known for its art galleries and restaurants. A wide range of outdoor activities are available, including mountain biking, birding, spelunking in a nearby mine cavern, hiking, hunting, rock climbing, horseback riding, etc. Tennis courts are .3 miles away at the university, and the town has a golf course. The property is the last house at the edge of town and is located on a hillside with views of the city and mountains. Because of its location, it is secluded and quiet even though it is only 9/10 of a mile straight down the street to the historic downtown. The property is also the closest house to the Market St. trailhead (4/10 mi.) which leads into an extensive system of public hiking and biking trails on Boston Hill, an old mining area where the adventurous can even follow tunnels underground into the old mines. The university also has a museum featuring a fabulous collection of ancient Mimbres pottery, and the Silver City museum located in a historic home downtown has changing exhibits on the town's history, as well as a great gift shop. Several shops downtown feature antiques, and there are numerous art galleries and many fine restaurants to choose from.
