Thank you for a truly unique experience. We've been to many a B&B but this was really exceptional. Decor, atmosphere all breathtaking. Loved the hot tub under the stars. — Guests from Missouri

Our Location in the Silver City Area …

N 32°58.189'     W 108°31.666'

Casitas de Gila Guesthouses and Nature Preserve is located in Southwestern New Mexico, USA, just 30 miles northwest of Silver City and 30 miles southeast of Glenwood, off U.S. Route 180. Our location is off the beaten path, yet not remote. It is incredibly quiet here, and there are no lights to spoil the night sky.

We're 4 miles from the small community of Gila (N32°58.873'; W108°34.652'), in Grant County, just off of Hooker Loop, which is a gravel road (also known as a dirt road). Hooker Loop is a county maintained road and is generally in excellent shape all year.

If you are traveling by motorcycle, please call us to talk about road conditions.

Occasionally a guest arrives thinking we are in the "middle of nowhere". But they very quickly realize that Casitas de Gila Guesthouses is the "center of everything"!

We recommend you reserve in advance if you wish to stay at Casitas de Gila, particularly in late winter, spring, fall, and on holidays and holiday weekends, when we are busiest. But if you find yourself in our area without a place to stay, don't hesitate to call and see if we have a Casita available before you make the drive out to us.

We send DRIVING DIRECTIONS with all booking confirmations. We don't want you to get lost trying to find us!

Advanced Air: Operates daily flights between Silver City and Albuquerque and Silver City and Phoenix from Grant County Airport (SVC) (about 20 minutes from Silver City and a bit over an hour from Casitas de Gila). Unfortunately, there is no reliable car rental in Silver City. We have an Enterprise office, but they will not deliver to or pick up from the Grant County Airport (and they are not open on weekends). The other local place won't allow their cars to be driven on gravel roads, which is what makes up the last four miles to Casitas de Gila. If you wish to fly into Silver City (rather than rent a car from either Phoenix or Albuquerque), we can assist you in setting up transportation from the airport to Enterprise.

FLYING YOUR OWN PLANE: There are two airports in Grant County: the Grant County Airport and Whiskey Creek Airport. There is also a dirt strip near us in Gila! If you are traveling by private plane and will be needing a driver or rental car or transportation to the rental car, please call us and we will assist you in setting it up.
