About The Owner

The owner, Bruce, was a factory worker, logger, newspaper reporter, PR flunkie, and unpublished fiction writer before he discovered computers and lost all interest in reality. He spent 12 years in a computer fog, but gave it all up to move to the Silver City area in 1999. He is now in recovery, but does find time to manage an office building and a few other business projects in town.

The Owner purchased this house in 1999

Why The Owner chose Silver City

Bruce lived in this beautiful house for five years before turning it into a vacation rental. If you don't book it, he probably will. It's a sacred place that he likes to share with others.

What makes this house unique

Beyond us are only a couple of tiny communities and a hundred miles of wilderness. In this secluded environment, you can hear the diverse sounds of many different varieties of birds, view the Milky Way amidst the dark, starry night skies, watch breath-taking sunsets right from the living room, and hike many nearby trails all the while reconnecting with the natural world AND your own inner landscape.

Guestbook comments from the manager

A beautiful place for us to truly enjoy! A wonderful home and such a beautiful site.

Beautiful space on an exceptional property in the Gila NF

  • 5 of 5

The house was spacious, clean, light and airy - a beautiful place. It met all of our needs for sleeping and nice kitchen and cooking time and provided a great base for some memorable hikes and drives. The views are wonderful. The agaves themselves were remarkable, with three still in bloom while we were there. What a delight to have this very special retreat in a magnificent location. We will certainly hope to return.

Beautiful, peaceful and restful

  • 5 of 5

The house and the surrounding property are beautiful. The rooms are large and comfortable, the art and decorations are well chosen. It is a very quiet location and has a "spiritual atmosphere". We enjoyed our week at Agave house and hope to return some day.

Comfortable, beautiful and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

The Agave Retreat was delightful - we only wish we had stayed longer. We spent the weekend there with two couples - and the house was roomy, comfortable and relaxing. We hiked, cooked, did some sightseeing, napped, read and watched the bicycle race (Tour de Gila) both in Silver City and out on Highway 15 the second day. Highly recommended!

An Enchanted Home situated in The Land of Enchantment

  • 5 of 5

Our 3 days and nights spent at Agave Ridge Retreat was a wonderful and memorable experience! Our only regret was that our travel schedule wouldn't allow for a longer stay. This well appointed home is located on a very secluded 18 acres, so if your looking for privacy this is the place for you. We hiked several of the trails on the property, and a map is provided showing their location. The coal black night sky with the stars shining like diamonds will take your breath away.

The historic Buckhorn Saloon & Opera House which is ten minutes away in nearby Pines Altos has a great dinner menu, and the open mike entertainment the night we dined there was great! Also the Gila Cliff Dwellings and the amazing Gila Catwalk are not far from Agave House and shouldn't be missed.

We truly hope to return to Agave House again someday...
