Description

Rio Lobo Cabin has become one of our more popular long term or short term vacation property rentals. Fully furnished, our 360 acre private retreat is snugged up against Bear Creek on the southwestern edge of the Gila National Forest just 32 miles northwest of Silver City, New Mexico. This 950 sq foot, large 1 bedroom gem is comfortably furnished with everything you need to start your next long or short term vacation adventure (including a washer/dryer for those packing light!). No annoying ambient light makes for excellent dark sky star gazing. Daytime adventures include bird watching, unlimited hiking along Bear Creek or the (more advanced) Double E Ranch Trail, wildlife viewing opportunities or just relaxing and gives active adults plenty of outdoor time! To jump-start your vacation and for your convenience, the pantry is supplied with complimentary short term supply of items such as gourmet spices, condiments, spices, sugar, coffee creamer, tea, cooking oil and spray, pasta, rice, microwave popcorn, canned meat chunks, foil. A few miles from your cabin you'll find our local convenience store/gas station. They are stocked with fresh dairy products, eggs, ice cream, bread, canned fruits and vegetables, frozen meat, lunch meat, soda, snacks - open 7 days a week.

The cabin is a gently upgraded authentic vintage 1940's cowboy bunkhouse and making it convenient for you to explore all that southwest New Mexico has to offer. This historic cabin is situated at the headquarters of the Double E Ranch in a hidden valley just a few miles from the Village of Gila NM. Adjacent to nearly 3 million acres of public lands, you are invited to take a peak at what early ranching life was like in the rural southwest, Grant County New Mexico.

A very short drive from your cabin you'll find services that include: medical clinic, library, post office, senior center, a variety of churches, gas station/mini-mart, local realtor. The largest town in the area is Silver City, 40 minutes drive away and includes grocery shopping, restaurants, night life, movie theaters, museums, antique stores and more!

The Rio Lobo Cabin is the original bunkhouse used by those cowboys who worked this 130 year old historic southwestern ranch from about 1945 to sometime around 1996 when it 30,000 acres became the Double E Ranch. At nearly 5,000 feet elevation, this lovingly restored, spacious 1-bedroom Rio Lobo Bunkhouse Cottage offers milder weather in every season, nearly 300 days of New Mexico sunshine and clear, dark New Mexico skies made for star gazing. Take advantage of our much milder winters and continue enjoying your favorite outdoor passion.

The covered deck is perfect for savoring your first cup of coffee in the morning, reading a book while enjoying the afternoon breeze, or relaxing with a refreshing beverage after a day of exploring.

If you listen carefully, you may still hear the "ca-chink, ca-chink" of well-used spurs and boots that once walked these same hardwood floors. The Rio Lobo Bunkhouse Cottage offers lots of living space so it really lends itself to an extended vacation. The kitchen features full-sized appliances, including a dishwasher, and an adjacent dining area, so you can cook-in as much as you’d like, saving you the hassle and expense of dining out. The completely remodeled bathroom comes with large bathtub/shower, and a conveniently located private washer/dryer. Pack as light as you want – you won’t run out of clean clothes!

Decorated with vintage Western furnishings, cowboy art and framed Western romance paperbacks from 1920 through 1950s - including those of Louis L’Amour and Max Brand - you'll soak up the spirit of the Old West.

At New Mexico Cabin Rentals, you can participate in a wide-variety of free-flowing, set your own schedule activities, including hiking, birding, rock hounding, photography, stargazing, archaeology and maybe some mountain biking. Explore the hill sides along Bear Creek for the remnants of the Ancient Ones - the Mimbres Indians whose famous red/ black pottery shards can still be found, as well as arrow heads and or other hand made tools. The horseback riding is spectacular. If you’d like to consider bringing your own horse, we’ve got self-care pens and a 300’ x 250’ enclosed arena.

Information on some of our best local attractions, art galleries, museums, restaurants, and annual events and activities such as Tour de Gila Bike Race, the Wild, Wild West Pro-Rodeo and Silver City Blues Festival are included in your cabin Information Booklet and can also be found on the ‘Area Attractions’ page of our website.
