This is located in the middle of no where but had relaxing qualities and lots of wild west charm. The host and hostess were the most friendly and treated you as family versus a customer. Little disappointed in the type of breakfast that was served for a place called a B&B. Great location to be in when heading to the Gila National Forest.
A group of us on a motorcycle ride stopped here for the night. There is no food services in town but the owners cooked dinner and even went and brought in beer and wine for us during out one night stay. They did an excellent job taking care of us.
Been here twice for music camps. Always have a great time and get a good rest. Food's great if a little fancy for me, but there's lots of choices so you'll be just fine. Lots of wildlife in the area- saw my first javelina here.
This is a great getaway from the noise, hustle and bustle of the 21st century. The hosts, Gary and Catherine, are extremely nice and hospitable and very accommodating. Our room was in the corner with it's own balcony surrounded by greenery, bamboo and cedar looking out towards the mountains and the back window overlooked the greenhouse. The room is located in the original 1880s portion. The only sounds were chickens cackling, roosters crowing and occasionally the wind stroking the very large wind chimes that would emit a low, vibrating bong. Truly wonderful! The Lodge is located only 9 miles from Hillsboro which sports a little winery where you can sample and buy wine and enjoy a nice repast of cheese, crackers, bread or what have you.Across the street is a wonderful antiques store with a gregarious owner who if you stay and chat will regale you with interesting history of the area. The Black Range Museum is currently closed undergoing some restoration but will re-open again soon. We visited it a year ago and found it truly fascinating. If you want to explore further, you are only a few miles from Lake Valley, another "real" ghost town where many of the original residents of Hillsboro and Kingston came from following the silver. The school house in Lake Valley is a blast from the past as is the Kingston school house. Back in Kingston, there's the Kingston Clay works where potter Eric Brown will invite you to have some coffee or cocoa and set a spell on the porch. His work is very good. I purchased one of his mugs that have an artistic rendition of the mountains surrounding Kingston which I love. If you want a full dinner, you can either travel 80 miles round trip to Truth or Consequences or just bring your own fixings and use the Lodge Kitchen.They have microwaves and a fridge where you can keep your food. Since my husband and I are small eaters, we did the cheese and meat boards at the Winery which was fine for us. Breakfast at the Lodge was yummy with bacon, fresh bread made from flour ground in an old flour grinder in the kitchen, fresh oat meal, eggs from the chickens mentioned earlier and other goodies. A truly lovely place - quiet, restful, and just plain country.…
What a lovely place to stay in the NM foothills. The motorcycle ride on 152 from Silver City is beautiful and the road is really fun to ride. The lodge has so much history and the hospitality is top of the line. Love the landscape with the chickens and two large friendly cats about too! This was the first time we stayed at a B&B and we will for sure throw this type of stay into our future adventures!
