About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4, additional rooms and baths on lower levels.

Comfortable and private two bedroom, one bath apartment with views of the city and Boston Hill from a private deck with BBQ.

A grand historic property within an easy stroll of all that downtown Silver City has to offer.

The Carter House was built in 1906 and was one of the preeminent homes of that time. A short walk will find many galleries and restaurants. Our property is just blocks from our main street which hosts many events during the year

About Wendy Phillips

We are long distance motorcyclists and hikers. We came to Silver City to visit friends and fell in love with the community.

Wendy Phillips purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Wendy Phillips chose New Mexico

We are historical renovators and this property was due for a spa treatment so it could go on to its next 100 years. The history, iconicism and it's size drew us to the property. Located on a hill overlooking a good portion of Silver City it has, beyond a doubt, one of the premier views of town while still being a part of downtown and a short walk to everywhere!

The 1906 Carter house has a long and storied past. One of it's commonalities is the love of it's owners. We thank the many that came before us for using good judgement in their stewardship of this property.

Being a part of the Cultural and Historic districts, walking distance to downtown and Western New Mexico University, and being at the trailhead of the Boston Hill trail system was just all too good to pass up.

What makes this apartment unique

This is a welcoming property. In town but still right at the trailhead to Boston Hill open space.

This apartment is perched privately on top of the Grand Carter Main House and can be rented separately or combined with the activities on the lower levels of the property.

Our goal is to offer a comfortable, pleasurable experience that will leave you with fond memories and bring you back to our community again and again.

Gorgeous, perfect location, large space for groups/families!

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say how much we LOVE this amazing property and the owners. They are constantly making improvements to an already great historic home that accommodates large groups and then some! It is always extremely clean and a joy to stay in. And that porch! Can't ask for a better way to enjoy downtown Silver City and the beautiful surrounding area. I would highly recommend this space.

Very clean, great location

  • 4 of 5

I secured the apartment for visiting family members, they had no complaints and felt the property was exactly as stated. They spent very little time in the VRBO except to sleep since we are so close by.

Great Location for Silver City vacation

  • 4 of 5

Four of us enjoyed our stay in the apartment. It is in a great location, within easy walking distance of the downtown. Apartment is quite spacious. Only downsides are the second bedroom (which has no windows...) and the bathroom ( which only has a tub and hand held shower). It was a little warm inside, due to it being July but Wendy provided two window A/C units and several fans, which helped.

Nice Apartment in Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Large apartment on the second floor of a beautifully restored house. Full kitchen, great internet connection, nice deck with grill. Right around the corner of the downtown area. It stormed in the afternoons when we were there and the view of the storms from the dining room window was wonderful. We were there but two days, really need more time to explore the area. People in town were very friendly. Wendy was friendly and very helpful with information, etc. Only thing we missed was meeting her new puppies. :-)
