Liz Stewart purchased this apartment in 2001
I love design and actually studied Achitecture very briefly so when I found this wonderful brick structure for sale I bought it. The high ceilings, large windows, original maple and oak floors and open space made it the perfect building to make my home. it sits on a small hill and the location of the building on the hill make it very private with views of the area mountains and the lights of Silver City at night.
I think the views, the quiet serenity make this a very appealling spot to spend some time. The property is easy walking distance to downtown and the university although the walk back up the hiilly streets makes for a good workout. There are lots of day trips one can make from Silver City and there are fairly easy hiking trails just down the road from Church House. A day trip exploring the City of Rocks which exist because of long ago volcanic action is a must and then a relaxing soak at the nearby Faywood Hot Springs the perfect ending to the day. There are a couple of small fishing lakes in the area, lots of railroad and mining history and wonderful Victorian Architecture to view. Two area museums, one at the university and one downtown give you two looks into our history. WNMU's museum has one of the best Mimbreno Pottery collections in the world. The gift shop at the downtown museum is a treasure trove of Silver City history.
We spent 2 months at the church house and had another great experience there. What a treat to look out of the living room each day at the mountains and silver city below. Liz is helpful and careful to give privacy at the same time. The pets loved it - close to Boston Hill and city streets for walks
A beautifully remodeled, redecorated old Morman Church. spacious, very nicely furnished; Spotless, with every amenity you could ask for. Fantastic view from every door and window, in all directions. Sits on a high hilltop overlooking Silver City, and surrounding countryside. Liz Stewart, the host, is a delightful host, very compassionate and caring. Could not do enough for us. We spent ten days in this beautiful home, and enjoyed every minute of it.We highly recommend it. As a side note; if you like just plain good home cooking; try Nancy's Silver Cafe, on Broadway, in dwntown old Silver City.
My wife and I spent three fun days in Silver City staying at the Church House. The Church House is located on a hill with wonderful views of the city and surrounding hills. It is beautifully decorated with some interesting works of art. The master bedroom and adjoining master bath are incredibly large and well furnished. The bath has a large shower and separate tub. The separate living room and dining room is also well furnished and has plenty of room. The kitchen is adequate and has all of the basic requirements for preparing meals. We ate most of our meals out so we only used the kitchen for light breakfast fare. The downtown section of Silver City has a nice selection of restaurants including the Jalisco Café, Vicki’s Eatery and the Silver Café. For a special dinner check out the Tre Rosat Café. They serve very good food and have an interesting wine selection. Overall, we were happy with the Church House and Liz was helpful during our stay. However, we have one complaint. Upon arrival, we found that there was no bath soap, no Kleenex nor shampoo provided. Also, there was only one small dispenser of hand soap for the whole apartment and it was almost empty. When we raised the issue with Liz, she informed us that “she does not provide those items”. We can understand that shampoo may not be provided, but basic items like hand soap, bath soap and Kleenex should be standard amenities provided by the owner for the convenience of their guests.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Church House. This was an old church converted to a residence. Liz has divided it up into her home and an attached one bedroom apartment. Although Liz lives on the premises, we never heard her through the wall. The Church House sits on top of a hill overlooking the town with great views of the area and beautiful sunrises. The apartment was tastefully decorated with lots of artwork, huge bedroom, huge walk-in closet, and a very large master bathroom with walk-in shower and original wood flooring from its "church days". The kitchen is very well stocked with even some leftover pantry items from previous guests. Liz was helpful in providing us with maps and books on the area to help plan our days.
This was our first visit to Silver City and found it a good starting point for some day drives through wilderness areas, lakes and valleys. There is some good hiking in the area although we mostly stuck to walking around neighborhoods and town. Historic downtown Silver City is an easy 10 minute walk from the Church House. (Not so easy coming back since it is uphill;))
We especially liked eating at Jalisco's for mexican food and enjoyed Little Toad Creek Brewery and Distillery.
There seems to be a lot of repeat customers to the Church House and we plan to be one of them.
what can I say. this is one of the best places I have stayed at. My wife and I loved the house the atmospher and the owners helpfulness. Clean, elegant, and great views. I will use the church house again.
The interior is spacious, bright, airy, and immaculately clean. There are lots of big windows for plenty of natural light. The space is beautifully decorated with quality furniture & fixtures and and lots of art. Most importantly, the bed was very comfortable.
We enjoyed conversing with Liz, who was very responsive to our requests and provided a basket full of information about things to do in the area.
From this hilltop house, you can watch the sunrise over the town and mountains from the living area, the bedroom, and outside. We stayed a week; and I took a photo of the sunrise every morning. The fenced yard was great for our dog.
I highly recommend the Church house, with one warning! The walk-in shower is huge; so when you reach in and turn on the water, you'll be doused with cold water before retreating and waiting for it to warm up. If you don't mind that, you'll enjoy staying here!
The Little Toad Creek Brewery & Distillery was our favorite place to eat and drink. We couldn't bring home any of their wonderful brews; but we did bring home a bottle of their tequila. We also had a great meal at Diane's, where they packaged up and sold us some of their "spiced nuts," which were so tasty on my salad.
We arrived in Silver City via US-180, from the northwest. If you arrive via a different route, I highly recommend a day trip to see the sights along this very scenic highway! The drive to the Gila Cliff Dwellings was narrow, winding, and also beautiful. We enjoyed several hikes with our dog at the extensive network at Dragonfly Trails east of town.
The Church House is located within walking distance of downtown Silver City, known for great restaurants, art galleries, Victorian Architecture and the Big Ditch Park. Western New Mexico University is a just a few streets over and in-town hiking trails just up the road.
