Cozy, peaceful casita

  • 4 of 5

This is my third time at Cherie's quiet casita. Cherie is an excellent landlady. She keeps the house whistle clean, is always available if there's a problem, but—even though her house is next door—never interferes with your privacy. I spent hours on the porch listening to the rolling thunder of the monsoons and being entranced by the clouds. (There are seating areas on three sides of the porch.) The kitchen is well furnished with pantry items, pots and pans, and coffee. The new sofa and chair she got while I was there are comfortable enough to nap in. WiFi is reliable, and if you need to work you can open the wings of the table in the second bedroom for a big desk. Jack, her mixed-breed dog, came by daily to check on my welfare and see if I had treats (I did). During the short drive to town, enjoy the mountains and cloud display. In monsoon season, bring a high-clearance vehicle, if possible. The creek across the driveway flooded a few times and my SUV couldn't ford it. You'd think with two bedrooms it would be suitable for two couples, but I wouldn't want to sleep in the bouncy second bed. The mattress, which is on a piece of plywood, moves pretty easily. Kids will love it, though. I've been here a month and am sorry to leave.

great homey place

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our 2 night stay. Cherie was extremely responsive. Everything was as described. Only negative is that the beds were not very comfortable. But was a great place to relax and spend time with family while visiting the area.

Had a great time.

  • 5 of 5

Went to Silver City for my wife's birthday. The place was great and the owner was readily available in case we had any problems , which we didn't. The place is excellent if you have a dog, with plenty of areas to walk your pet. The place was very clean and everything was provided to make our stay enjoyable. 5 stars. We will be staying here again. Ed and Arlene.

great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

If you are staying in Silver City it would be hard to beat staying here. Located only 3 miles outside of town this house is totally set up with everything to make it your home away from home. Quiet, private and reasonably priced.

Cherie is the consummate host making sure everything is just right for your stay. IMHO you would be hard pressed to find a better place to kick your feet up and make yourself comfortable while in Silver City.

A first class operation that rates five stars across the board.
