Susan and her family moved to the area 30 years ago. She had worked outfitting and real estate. She lived in the Casita while she built a beautiful home on the hill. Her mother moved and they started the Tres Caballeros Bed n Breakfast. She very much enjoyed visiting with the travelers and planting flowers. In July 2016 She moved to Salt Lake because of her health. Now Edith is running the bed n breakfast with the same care and hospitality as she did.
Edith or Susan purchased this cabin in 1998
We are a quiet home close to the highway so there is access all year round. It is right in the Cibola National Forest with trails and access roads within a mile.
Thanks so much for everything. Glad we have discovered your place. Certainly want to return, and be sure we would recommend you to our friends. You are a great hostess. Bill and Jean
This lovely casita is even better than the photos. The inside is well decorated with a classy, rustic feeling. Bathroom, kitchen have beautiful tile. Comfortable king bed. The owner has added a roof over the patio; giving guests a quiet, zen-like place from which to view the mountains and to hear the whisper of the pines! We will go back as soon as we can!
You're headin' west on Ol' Highway 60 once you leave Historic town of Socorro, where the Bosque del Apache Wildlife Refuge is along the Rio Grande River, where tens of thousands of migratory birds can be seen each fall throught the winter. Keep on headin' west up into the mountains through Magdalena. On second weekend of July it is the home of the annual Old Timers Festival including a mini-cattle drive, rodeo and barbecue. Here was the end of the railraod and a center of large cattle drives many years ago. Once you leave Magdalena, headin' toward the sunset, you'll pass the Very Large Array, one of the world's largest astronomical radio observatories. Here the air is clear and crisp all year round. That is why the 27 radio telescopes are located in the San Augustine Plains, where there is very little polutant in the air. Sciencetist from around the world use these massive telescopes to study the universe. Then the Torstenson Wildlife Center donated to the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation with abundant in elk and wildlife.
As you cross the vast plains of San Augustine, large herds of antelope can be seen. You will hit the little mountain town of Datil, New Mexico, home of Tres Caballeros, the Inn of Three Cowboys. You stay on Highway 60 headin west, after mile maker 75, Tres Caballeros if located on your left. We are right on the edge of the Cibola National Forest where elk, mule deer, and other wildlife can be seen grazing the canyon meadows. We are on the north side of the Datil Canyon which you can see out into the meadows from the house. There are forest access roads a mile away. Take a hike up the hill in the back yard and you will very likely see wildlife and is a awesome view. In the summer there are lots of hummingbirds and gold finches and many other birds to watch. In Dec and Jan when we have snow there are many hills to sled and cross country ski on. We have clear pure sunshine 360 days a year. Very few days do we not see our potent source of life. Our nights are vibrant and amazing to watch the stars and milky way. With horizon to horizon view it is a wonder to watch the clear night skies.
On down Hwy 60 is the old American west town of Pie Town which is known for it's slice of life. They have been serving pie since 1922. The second Saturday of September they hold their annual Pie Festival with an old fashioned barbeque and dance, a pie eating contest, and a horned toad race. Hundred of people come and eat hundreds of pie in one day. Just 20 miles from Datil is the Historic town of Gabrielle which hold enactments of the corral shoot out of. Just another 20 mile west and south takes you to Quemado Lake and some real good trout and muskie fishin'. The 'gateway to the Gila National Forest' is on Highway 12. It will take you south to Reserve and Silver City or up into the Gila National Forest which is comprised of more than 3 million acres of wilderness to hike, camp, mountain bike, fish, or hunt in. We are out in the middle of now where with lots of wonders of nature around us.
