Ready for a relaxing and rejuvenating vacation? Come experience our beautiful home in the Gila National Forest of New Mexico. Adjacent to Lake Roberts and minutes from the Continental Divide, our custom-built, southwest style home features comfort and luxury with incredible mountain views, 20 acres for hiking and enjoying the outdoors, and the Gila National Forest right outside the door. Proximity to Silver City, NM means the best of both worlds – nature and serenity plus restaurants, galleries, shops and loads of local events.


Our home boasts 4 kiva fireplaces, Santa Fe style design with saltillo tile and custom touches throughout. Strategically placed windows and decks capture the beauty of the surrounding scenery. Sapillo Creek Escape borders the Gila National Forest on several sides, and the pristine Sapillo Creek runs through the property. If you’re a fisherman, bring your reel and fish right on the property, or take a quick drive to Lake Roberts for fishing and boating.

Take a hike in the Gila or around Lake Roberts, visit the Gila Cliff Dwellings or Hot Springs, take a bike ride – bring your own or rent bikes from Gila Hike and Bike, or take a scenic drive into Silver City for dining, shopping, museums, and a multitude of galleries and events. Kick back and relax on one of our many decks and porches, enjoy the view and the peaceful sound of the wind in the pine trees. Take a nighttime walk on our property to view the stars – the Gila National Forest enjoys some of the darkest skies in the continental U.S. You won’t believe how the stars twinkle out here!

Sapillo Creek Escape is the perfect spot for writers and artists looking for quiet, solitude and the inspiration that nature provides. It’s a great place to work on or finish a project, with high speed internet and so many wonderful spots in the house and around the property to set up your work space.

We’ve also recently added several different options for staying with us in addition to our four-bedroom home: a cozy and adorable Glamping Casita, and three different campsites.

Our cozy glamping casita, which can be rented on its own or along with the house.

We know once you come stay you won’t want to leave, and you’ll be planning your next visit before your current visit ends!
