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The owner, Bruce, was a factory worker, logger, newspaper reporter, PR flunkie, and unpublished fiction writer before he discovered computers and lost all interest in reality.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 New Mexico

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

Beyond us are only a couple of tiny communities and a hundred miles of wilderness. In this secluded environment, you can hear the diverse sounds of many different varieties of birds, view the Milky Way amidst the dark, starry night skies, watch breath-taking sunsets right from the living room, and hike many nearby trails all the while reconnecting with the natural world AND your own inner landscape.

A Peaceful Retreat in the Gila Wilderness

  • 5 of 5

The Agave Retreat is pressed up againt an impressive  rocky hillside  in the  Gila National Forest in Pinos Altos, a historically unique  area above Silver City. The two story house is exceptionally private with full views of the forest and rocky hills  from all of the windows in the upper level rooms. There are several outdoor spaces which provide panoramic views of the area and have sunset views out the front of the property  and the sunrise views from   the back, master suite and deck. The house is surrounded by tall ponderosa pines,  pinion trees, junipers  and agave cactus.The interior of the house is full of local art and beautiful middle eastern rugs as well as comfortable contemporary  furniture alongside  rustic antiques.  My husband  and I travel mostly in the Fall and Winter months which are usually cold and really appreciated the radient floor heating system  which kept the house evenly warm , with an added benefit of a fireplace for supplemental heating.The host provided all of the firewood needed during our stay.The leasing director -Maryam was especially helpful providing details of the house during our stay. This is the perfect place to escape the stress of every day life and explore the beauty and unique history of this region.

Solitude nestled in the spires

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for cramped quarters in an bustling urban setting, this is not for you. The photos don't do the interior or exterior justice. The house is built into the rugged landscape, with trails and a river on the property, bordering National Forest. We had snow during our stay, which only made the experience better.

Owner's Response: Glad your stay at the house made your holiday special! The seasonal springs and the nearby creek were spectacular this year with all the moisture we've had!

The house and location on the edge of the Gila National Forrest are outstanding.

  • 5 of 5

The amenities in the house and views from both inside and outside patio areas are amazing. The proximity to Silver City and Nation Forrest points of interest is very convenient. The customer service Maryam provided was excellent, second to none and greatly appreciated. We will definitely be back.

Beautiful location, elegant and comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

Even though we arrived in a snowstorm in early January and weren't able to get our 4-wheel drive vehicle up the driveway--it was still a great place to stay! Our group of four adults had beautiful hikes in the snow, comfortable meals surrounded by gorgeous views from every window, and relaxing evenings. We loved the radiant heat floors when our bare feet hit them first thing in the morning! Everything in the house was immaculate and in good working order. As a textile artist I especially appreciated the lovely art throughout the house and the owners' thoughtful description of each piece in the informational folder for the house.

Our group enjoyed excursions to Silver City, the Gila Cliff Dwellings, and the Buckhorn Saloon in Pinos Altos. We found the location lovely and well situated to explore the area. We'd definitely return and recommend it to friends.

Owner's Response: Happy to hear that the unusual snowstorm that hit the day of your arrival added to the experience. We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back to Agave House soon!
