My wife and I have been going to Silver City since 1988 and we have always loved it - until this visit. The area is beautiful and worth the long drive up the winding road. The cabins have always been rustic and that is fine, however they have not been well maintained since our last visit. For the price paid I expect there to be at least some work to keep the cabins in good shape. We stayed in the same cabin (Sunny Point) and the porch fence is actually falling off - dangerous. Paint was peeling from the deck and the inside of the cabin was really not at all clean. The toilet looked like it had not been cleaned in a while (I cleaned it)! Worse - we ate at a special Guest Chef night at the lodge and were served an hour and 15 minutes later than our reservation and we all got food poisoning!!! We were sick as dogs the next day.
Finally, I had a dispute over the bill when checking out and it went poorly. Honestly, I am very sad that the place has changed hands. It has fallen on hard times and I think the management needs a little more prfessional help keeping the place up. They appear to be trying to make improvements (adding a rec room and improving size of kitchen) but the grounds were a mess and there was garbage laying all over. I am afraid I have to say I dont recommend it anymore.
