Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday home in Silver City - A Power House

Be at home with all the amenities, fireplace & views. Yet so close to town!

After entering through the front courtyard you emerge into the Great Room, an airy, open space perfect for sitting by the fireplace, napping in the day bed, or practicing yoga. A built in desk area is ideal for catching up on business-- WiFi included. The open and fully equipped kitchen includes a breakfast counter, as well as a cosy dinning nook.

The bedroom has an expansive view of the wilderness, a walk in closet, and a brand new mattress. It, too, is elegantly decorated with contemporary art work and custom tile, as are the bathroom and shower.

The day bed in the great room serves as an extra sleeping area for one adult or 2 children. Pets are welcome- as long as they stay off the furniture and are not left unattended during short stays. We ask an additional fee per person/animal after the initial two guests.

The sun floods in through the glass patio doors in winter, and in summer a cool breeze will flow in through open doors. Private patios front and back with views of the National Forest to the north, and all the way to Mexico in the south. The roof is a solar array and the floor is heated for maximum comfort.

A Power House is an exciting collaboration between myself, Zoe Wolfe (artist) and my husband, Steven Shelendich (architect). Our daughter was also involved in the project, helping Steven with the construction and solar panel installation. We look forward to sharing this special place with you!

' A Power House is a lovely casita with all the amenities. We felt so at home -out in the wilderness, but so close to town.' - a guest

What makes this house unique

When we don't have guests we ourselves enjoy spending time in 'A Power House'! It is truly comfortable, and the decor pleasurable. Interesting books, games, and a yoga mat are provided for extra entertainment. Usually we are content to sip a cup of tea and enjoy the space and views.

Beautiful simplicity under the stars

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved this casita for so many reasons. It was filled with sunlight, original art, color and a stunning vista. The ample, well-supplied kitchen and washer/dryer were also a plus. But the very best part was the awe-inspiring stars out the back patio every night. Zoe was a wonderful host. Highly recommended.

Beautiful and peaceful

The casita was over the top beautiful. The views from the front and back were stunning. We stayed a month and enjoyed the town and national forests nearby.

It should say a lot that this is my second review of this excellent property. Why did I come back (and why will I come back again)? New, clean, easily-livable, modern, functional, comfortable house that's a perfect vacation home. Not too sparse, not too fussy, just right. The artwork was a major plus. It's easy to RELAX. The property is surrounded on three sides with trees and wilderness with plenty of hiking nearby. Recommended to "get away from it all."

Grear location - peaceful, great wildlife

  • 5 of 5

The house was spacious, bed very comfortable and nights quiet. We had all amenities except TV ( which we loved!)

Time to appreciate the outside space and talk about our day.

A lovely experience and close to Silver City with its many galleries.

I would definitely recommend this accommodation.

Even better than the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

When walking into the Guest House it is immediately evident the owners are very artistic and creative. Beautiful and colorful tiling with artistic touches throughout. The house was clean, neat, comfortable, and of course solar powered. I received a friendly welcome and good suggestions for restaurants and things to do in and around Silver City. Wonderful vistas, and what a majestic surprise that first night to step outside and see the stars!
