10 of us Tucson Pathfinders spent the July 4th weekend of 2004 at the Nature Conservancy's BML in Silver City. It was a very nice and enjoyable experience. The staff was very helpful and attentive, the included breakfasts were excellent and plentiful, and the reasonably priced dinner that we ate there was also very good. And there were always fresh-baked pastries, coffee, tea, and cold sodas set out during the day.
The Saturday all-day hike guided by lodge naturalist Mike to some of the NC preserves in the area was extremely fun and educational. Along the Gila River, we saw deer, huge jack rabbits, evidence of beavers, a Western yellow-billed cuckoo, a white-faced ibis, herons, bear and mountain lion tracks, hummers, phoebes, a nestling common black hawk, adult black hawks, and much more.
Mora and her lodge staff are very competent and professional and make BML one of the most enchanting and comfortable nature-oriented, lodge-type B&B's in the United States. It is a very tastefully done luxury facility that is not exactly cheap, but worth every penny!
