- A truly special place -
El Patio is located in the historic district of Silver City and boasts a five minute walk to the heart of historic downtown. Built in the late 1800's of traditional adobe block, this home is one of the earliest built in the area around the time Silver city was first settled. Post WWII, it was divided into two smaller dwellings to accommodate returning soldiers and their families. Today, the building itself is a testament to the soundness and ingenuity of adobe construction and the building methods of that time.
Named for the pleasant outdoor space it provides, El Patio offers a 500 sq. ft. flagstone patio that is bordered with many plantings, both native and otherwise, to ensure the presence of humming birds, bees and butterflies. In addition to being visually pleasing, the patio sits beneath a canopy of trees that provide shade throughout the day. There is a full size gas grill, dining seating for six, and separate lounge chairs. For evening enjoyment, the outside can be lit with soft party lights that gracefully hang between the trees and house itself. There is also a stone fire pit available for use as fire conditions allow.
Inside, you'll find the home truly defies its age; quite simply, it is bright, warm and inviting. The interior has been renovated to bring a freshness to the space, while keeping its unique features and original charm intact.
For your convenience, the kitchen is supplied with all the essentials for cooking/preparing meals, as well as, having a full size stove and refrigerator.
The bathroom has been redone with a multicolored slate floor, and a custom tile inlay that surrounds the original claw-foot bathtub. For your comfort, the towels are soft and durable, and shampoo and soap are provided.
The beds are dressed with soft, 100% cotton sheets, light quilts/down comforters, and soft or firmer pillows. The space also provides ample storage: In addition to a dresser in each bedroom, EVERY room has its own closet and shelving with plenty of room to store belongings and hang clothes for longer stays.
Not only is El Patio highly accessible to downtown galleries, restaurants and special events, it also sits directly across the street from the open space known as Boston Hill - aptly named for the Boston based mining company contracted to extract silver from the area 60 years ago. “The hill” is now home to a vast network of trails spanning 9 square miles - ideal for long or shorter hikes, mountain biking and impressive, comprehensive views of the city.
El Patio is the sister property of El Pasos (VRBO #630188)
Silver City has been our home for the last twelve years. The incomparable weather, beautiful landscape and friendly people have made it feel as if we have always been here. Our passion for older houses, their restoration and care, has led us to offer El Patio as a short term vacation home. We are excited to share this property with visitors and pleased to be able to continue to care for this special place for years to come. We hope that you enjoy your stay.
El Patio offers a wonderful respite from busy lives. It was the perfect setting for our first visit to Silver City, charming and in walking distance to the historic downtown. The house is comfortable, clean, beautifully decorated, and features many amenities. The weather was damp so we didn't spend much time in the backyard, but the garden is lovely. It was nice to arrive to a tasty chocolate bar and a kind note, along with lots of materials on local attractions. We would definitely stay here again.
We loved it! Clean, comfortable, cozy, and convenient! I'll add one more "C" for Carolyn. She was a fantastic host. We needed to make a last minute change and she was extremely accessible and accommodating. A++++++ all around.
This property is really fantastic! Great Southwest feel inside and amazing patio in the back. I had such a good time staying here. Thanks a bunch Carolyn!
Our weekend in this wonderful historic adobe was amazing! It is a magical place. It is decorated so very beautifully and has everything you need for a weekend or a month! Thank you so much for sharing this place with others! It is a very short walk to town. I was very impressed with Silver City - the art community and the restaurants were great! We hope to be back some day!
My wife and I enjoyed our stay in Silver City. Carolyn's home was perfect and we enjoyed all the beautiful and artistic tile work she has done to make the home unique and comfortable.
Carolyn and Josh's "El Patio" was a marvelous place to stay in Silver City, NM. We were there for a week and feel that we really got our money's worth...it is comfortable, homey and so convenient to all of the art and restaurants in downtown Silver City. We would definitely stay there again. The only thing that might be improved upon for a stay longer than a week (e.g. a month or more) would be to add a washer and dryer somehow to the unit. For a stay of only a week or less this certainly isn't an issue. Carolyn and Josh were terrific to work with and the people in Silver City are very genuine and just plain nice.
