Nestled amongst towering trees in rural New Mexico, this cabin’s quiet location is heavenly! From here, you’ll be within easy reach of some of the area’s fascinating and beautiful historic sites, such as the renowned Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument and the cliff dwellings found on nearby Route 15.

The cabin sits on a high ridge with a great, expansive view to the nearby mountain range that is closer than the provided photos might have indicated.
One of the best features is the extremely well-appointed kitchen with every supply one might need for making one's meals including good knives (a rare item in a rental!). Less successful were the electrical switches, some of which were taped over as non-functioning or to be operated only with a remote control. We didn't need the overhead fan, but additional lighting for the main living room might have helped.
Another minor inconvenience was the very low water pressure. It took quite a while to fill water pitchers, etc. The doorway between the living room/dining space and the two-bedroom wing of the house could have used some kind of door: either a folding door or even a hanging curtain of some sort so people using the bathroom on that side could go between the bedroom and bathroom with a bit more privacy.
The deck was nicely appointed with generous amounts of furniture, but it was still too cool to sit outside in the mornings and evenings.
There wasn't quite enough comfortable seating for three couples to watch TV. One additional comfy chair in the living room could help that situation.
The beds were comfortable with plenty of pillows and blankets. The dining room table was very large to accommodate everyone and there were very good provisions of the basic needs such as napkins and paper products, foil, baggies, and a great selection of spices and condiments (although we had brought our own.) We didn't do laundry, but we noted there were very good appliances, detergents, etc. provided for that as well.
The only other caveat is that the cabin, while remote and therefore quiet, is quite a way from some of the attractions. Although Silver City is only 25 miles (approx.) away, it takes almost an hour and a half to get there because of curvy, hilly roads. The same goes for natural attractions such as the GIla Cliff Dwellings which require quite a drive to access. One needs to be sure of basic supplies such as gasoline and groceries before heading out. So if one is aware and fully prepared, it can be a real "quiet retreat" for a vacation.
We were generally very happy with our stay but, just as some others wrote, a bit surprised at the cost for the cleaning service. Perhaps it's because cleaning crews have to come in from afar that adds to that cost.
Overall, a good, quiet place!
The Deer Spirit Cabin was spacious, comfortable and mid way between the Gila Cliff Dwellings and Silver City--meeting our primary goals.
The check in/ out instructions provided at confirmation of our reservation were not as complete as they could/should have been. I did not realize that we would be responsible for doing sheets/towels laundry until near the end of our stay--which delayed our scheduled early am departure. Especially with the prepaid (generous) cleaning fee. Other than that surprise, we enjoyed our stay. N
I have rented a few time through VRBO, I would have to say this is the best cabin yet that we have stayed in. The floor layout was nice, the cabin was clean, the neighbor was friendly, the view was great, got to see lots of deer. The only thing negative I would say about it was there were no departure instructions like it noted in the VRBO information as to how the leave the bedding, the used towels, the trash. Our reason for booking the cabin was too attend the Jazz Festival and motorcycle Rally in Silver City. I would not advise anyone to take your motorcycle unless you have lots of experience the incline is pretty steep with loose gravel.
The cabin was well stocked with everything you could need. The property was very clean also! The kitchen had everything you would need as far as cooking utensils, spices, etc. During our stay we saw both wild turkeys and deer from the kitchen window. The location was perfect for us and made the trip to the Cliff Dwellings more manageable with a toddler. The only thing I would have like to have known before we arrived was that there was no cell phone service in the area (maybe it was just our carrier Verizon). Overall we loved our stay, the house and location were perfect.
I was traveling in my truck camper when I was invited to swing by and stay with my friends at this lovely cabin for a couple of nights. It was a cozy two nights indeed and I enjoyed the opportunity for some quiet time to relax and gaze out on the outdoor scenery. A nature-lover at heart, I also enjoyed the walks I took and the drive to visit nearby sights. This cabin is a very nice size - spacious and comfortable. The proximity to historic sights, other towns, hiking trails is excellent.
We arrived at the cabin in the early evening and were struck by how awesome the views are from the cabin. Looking out the sliding glass doors there are spectular mountain views. Then in the early morning and evening if you look out the front door or the kitchen window you can see a large herd of deer. The cabin in located in Gila National forest and there are many trails close by. We enjoyed being transported to a forest retreat but still located in the Southwest. This place is perfect to sit and enjoy the views while enjoying a cup of coffee.
