I've lodged here many times when in the Silver City/ Gila Nat'l Forest vicinity. It beats staying at a chain hotel any day! The cabins are CLEAN, spacious and well-equipped. Most have kitchens and all you need to bring is your own food, as nice, quality implements are stocked in the cupboards. I do recommend bringing a cooler of food... More

My husband and I enjoyed three nights at Bear Creek Motel and Cabins in Pinos Altos. The cabin was comfortable and very clean. We had plenty of privacy until another couple and their dog stayed in the cabin attached to ours on our last night. Daniel, the manager, was so accommodating and helpful. He recommended restaurants, attractions, and hikes and... More

I love coming to Bear Creek Cabins! Even if you're just there for a night or two, it feels like you're a world away from everything. (I love not having cell service in Pinos Altos.) The birds are great, there's a nice hike across the road, you're withing walking distance of The Buckhorn, and the Gila Wilderness, Gila River, and... More

We stayed here for a birthday getaway and it was wonderful. We brought our dog and it was no problem. Great access to Silver City and lots of small hikes between the cabins and the main Gila VC. The cabins are small but clean and comfy. And the man working there is fabulous. He let us hike all day, shower,... More

Peace filled, absolutely glorious place to stop and rest for a couple days. Glad we decided to stay 2 nights instead of one. Gave us a chance to explore the town and Silver City. Cabin A, 2 story, fireplace, huge kingsize bed in upper loft, balconies both up and down. Art in the office was very helpful. Can't say enough... More

We tend to be finicky and opinionated about everything. But we are not snobs. As world population explodes, and everyone goes anywhere, and crowds turn secrets into fads, there are fewer and fewer places of any kind that totally hit the mark and (don't tell anyone) Bear Creek Cabins is one of them. If you make it to Silver CIty... More

My wife and I have been staying here for over 10 years. We have 'our' cabin, which we rent every stay. Unfortunately I'm not going to say which cabin, as we don't want it to become popular, but all of them are wonderful. Different cabins can handle couples to family reunions, so the choice is yours. The setting is in... More

We choose The Cabins from Tripadvisor listings as a "halfway" meeting place for a family get together and access to the Gila and Silver City. We had excellent service making the rez, but somewhat disjointed communications process. On arrival we were helped in every way, getting settled, finding eateries and info about the are. The cabin (cabin three) was huge... More

My wife and I stayed in cabin 9 in early October. The setting is beautiful if you like the forest and outdoors. There are 2 beds upstairs and a large (for a cabin) living room downstairs, bathroom, and shower. There is a fireplace, and plenty of dry firewood provided in a wood box on the front porch, alongside the picnic... More
