On Continental Divide at 7K ft. in small mountain community of Pinos Altos ( 7 miles to Silver City), the newly constructed, fully furnished cottage offers elegant passive-solar (warm in winter, cool in summer) getaway on edge of Gila Forest.

The space

Pinos Altos Casita is a newly constructed elegant dwelling a short walk from the center of this mountain village at the edge of Gila National Forest. Enjoy a full bedroom with additional bed in loft, accommodating a couple and two children. All new everything, including dishwasher, washer & dryer, with a private porch and outside patio. A peaceful, passive solar place to make your get-away home - just 7 miles north of Silver City. A faraway forest home that's close to city entertainment.

Guest access

You can walk out your door onto a trail that takes you deep into the surrounding canyons and mountains. There's a fenced yard for well-behaved dogs. An adjoining outdoor patio for reading, resting, and eating.

We loved exploring the Gila from this sweet casita - its super comfortable and well stocked. The lovely hiking trails right from the casita are a real plus, along with the directions Tom and Deb shared to other exquisite close-by trails - we would love to come back again!

If you want to be away from the hustle and bustle, this is your place. The bonus? It only takes a few minutes to get to Silver to eat, play, or wander. A great launching point for all of the nearby activities.

The Casita is, hands down, the most lovely place I've ever stayed with AirBnB. The house is beautiful, energy efficient, and well stocked with all the things you need for sleeping, eating and relaxing. It's in a lovely mountain community with great access to the Gila and lots of adventures. I spent four days just writing, watching the lizards and birds, and just hiking. I couldn't have asked for a better base of operations. Thanks, Tom!

Response from Tom:
Thanks Alex. I wanted to say more in the review -- about the hammock /your gracious offer and how nice it was to a young couple in the casita. Also was intrigued by your writing, as I am a writer/author/policy analyst, especially when overhearing what was apparently a conversation with your editor. But didn't want to be intrusive. It was a joy to see you both writing on the porch. Thanks for the great review -- and especially the news that you will be back.

The casita's efficient design allows plenty of room for two people. Skylights provide a cheerful setting even when the weather is gloomy. Solar features keep the day and night temps comfortable.
