Beautiful mountain cabin

  • 5 of 5

Very cozy and serene mountain cabin. Mr. Rakestraw was extremely courteous and accommodating. We will definitely be booking this cabin again next year if we draw the same hunt.

Very small but nice little place if on a budget

  • 3 of 5

Bert (the owner) is a warm, humble sort of guy, very open and friendly in a simple kind of way, easy and enjoyable to chat with. The place is located on a small working ranch where you will see him tending to his cows and horses. There is a horse corral area near the adobe apartment where he saddles up and practices roping. The adobe apartment is part of a storage barn that has been converted. Very small, tight and basic place, but a nice bathroom with an old west galvanized steel washbasin as the sink (has hot/cold taps). Nice shower. A National Forest road goes right by his property up to Eagle Peak-- great access to the back-country which is quite beautiful around there. If you like target shooting, there is a designated shooting range in the National Forest at the end of his property about a quarter mile away from the apartment.

Off the beaten track hide-away

  • 4 of 5

This is a very small, cozy studio room in a well-built adobe structure on 30+ quiet acres, in the Gila wilderness. Clearly well cared for. The host, Bert Rakestraw, is lovely - kind, thoughtful, attentive. The space is small, with a microwave, grill, and double burner hotplate, but no stove. Markets and restaurants are five minutes away. The space was immaculate and well-cared for. The isolation of the location means it will probably appeal most to hikers and hunters. The stars at night were brilliant, and the stillness was restorative.

Awesome rustic and detached from the outside world experience!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I went to stay in this cute and rustic New Mexico getaway in the Gila wilderness and what a wonderful experience it was. Bert the owner is very friendly and pleasant and will show you around his place but will give you your privacy. Be prepared to bring everything you'll need as far as food because there's not much of a choice of anything in the town of Reserve, which is about 3 miles away. Other than that the little Adobe casita has everything and is self sustained just like it is described in the posting. My wife and I look forward to returning and would recommend it highly.
