This home is less than a mile from the local library. The annual Blues Festival is held only a few blocks away at Gough Park.
One of our favorites of the many vacation rentals we've stayed in. We've never before written a review, but we have to
Our hostess Beverly was charming and accessible. The "cottage" had the perfect spot to relax in the morning sun on the front porch . Location was just the perfect quiet spot for slumber after exploring historic Silver City. Enjoyed the Faywood Hotspring experience immensely.
This cottage was excellent; we couldn't have asked for a better stay. Everything was exactly as shown in the photos, or as described. The cottage was exceptionally clean, and Beverly could not have been a more gracious host. The only thing we had to supply was our food. The weather in February was not as warm as we would have liked, but then Silver City is at 6,000 feet elevation. If we stay in southwest NM again, we would certainly stay here, and highly recommend it to others!
What a lovely quiet and well appointed home. Open concept and lacking for nothing. We are considering staying for a whole month next year.
Thanks for sharing your home Beverley.

There is so much to do and see in this part of New Mexico, and it was all very easy to access from this location. Close to restaurants, close to downtown, close to trails and close to the highway. The house was very clean and had everything we needed. To top it all off the owners, Don & Beverly, were two of the nicest people you could ever meet. What more could you want from a vacation rental?
Beverly's "Cottage" is a real home, in a real yard, with real trees, on a really quiet street, within walking distance to downtown. It was everything we could have asked and much more than we expected.
Silver City is the home of Western New Mexico University. WNMU Museum advances understanding of the diverse cultural and artist heritages of Southwest New Mexico through research, collection, exhibition, interpretation, and exhibition; creates opportunities for visitors to experience authentic and significant artifacts and art firsthand in meaningful contexts; and supports and enriches the educational mission of Western New Mexico University. Permanent exhibitions feature the largest, most comprehensive permanent exhibition of prehistoric Mimbres Mogollon pottery and artifacts in the world, and include separate displays of basketry, footwear, cordage, stone tools, and stone and shell jewelry. Prehistoric pottery and artifacts of the Upland Mogollon, Casas Grandes, Salado, and Anasazi are also exhibited.
The Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument is about 44 miles (71 km) north of Silver City, via the winding NM 15. At the monument, the remains of Indian inhabitants within five caves in a cliff can be found. They were built sometime between 1275 and 1300 AD by the Mogollon culture. In addition to ancient ruins, there are plenty of places to camp, hike and fish within the Gila Wilderness. There are several lakes in the area. Lake Roberts is 72-acre (290,000 m2) about 27 miles (43 km) north of Silver City on NM 15 near the NM 35 junction. Other lakes in the Silver City area include Bill Evans Lake, Snow Lake, Wall Lake, Bear Canyon Dam. Anglers have a choice of brown and rainbow trout, catfish and bass. In addition, several mountainous rivers can be found nearby. Some of note are the Gila River, Negrito Creek, San Francisco River, and Willow Creek.
City of Rocks State Park is an area of interesting rock formations created by volcanic eruptions long ago. People can enjoy climbing the rocks, picnicking, and camping. The City of Rocks is located off NM 61.
The Kneeling Nun is a natural rock formation located about 20 miles (32 km) to the east of Silver City along NM 152. Several legends have developed explaining its origin.
ilver City's Historic Downtown is home to our booming Arts District, but you'll find dozens of distrinctive galleries and studios in communities across Grant County, including Hurley, Pinos Altos, the Mimbres Valley, Glenwood and more! Silver City is proud to be one of the 100 Best Art Towns in America, as judged by noted author John Villani.
Southwest New Mexico has a reputation for being a birders’ paradise! The lush riparian river valleys, scenic mountains and canyons, proximity to Mexico and the surrounding lands of the Gila National Forest attract over 300 species. A half hour drive north of Silver City, in the Gila National Forest, the fluting melody of the Hermit Thrush mingles with distinctive calls of Painted Redstarts and Red-faced Warblers. The mix of oak and pine are a favorite place for Acorn Woodpeckers and the Bridled Titmouse. The lucky birder may find a Montezuma Quail. You’ll also find Hepatic, Summer, and Western Tanagers.
Spring migrations begin in late April but birding can be rewarding all through the year. Over 339 species have been seen in Grant County. You’ll find intriguing desert canyons, cool riparian habitat, Pinon/Juniper woodlands, and Ponderosa and Spruce/Fir forests. We invite you come see our special birds.
The “Birds of the Gila National Forest Check List” and maps are available at the Silver City Visitor Center, the Gila National Forest Supervisors office, district ranger stations, the Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument.”
