About Us

IMG_1185Sapillo Creek Escape is a truly unique gem in the Gila Wilderness. It sits at 6,000 feet above sea level, was custom designed and built by the creator of the Bear Creek Motel and Lodge in Piños Altos, and took 7 years to construct. Everything from the saltillo tiles to the wood latilla ceilings are custom built and exquisitely hand-laid. See our Photo Galleries for highlights.

With over 3,000 square feet in the home at your disposal, this place is made for just you, or you and your family and friends, to enjoy the Gila Wilderness, Silver City, and Grant County. Fishing, birding, biking, hiking, horseback riding and more await you in the Gila, with dining, arts, culture and more in Silver City. See our Area Attractions page for more information on all this area has to offer in adventure and entertainment.

This one of a kind space includes three full bedrooms with adjoining decks with breathtaking views and sunsets, and a smaller single bedroom. There are three full bathrooms and 4 kiva fireplaces. Guests have access to the entire home, including laundry facilities.

Sapillo Creek Escape sits on 20 acres, so camping is welcome. We are also pleased to offer the space for intimate events; please email us if you are interested in holding a special event here.

Pets are permitted with prior review and approval. All pets must be friendly and get along with other pets, and must be fully vaccinated (proof of vaccinations is required, especially rabies, parvo virus and kennel cough). If you would like to bring your pet, please contact us to discuss.

We purchased Sapillo Creek Escape in early 2019. We are thrilled and honored to own it, and be the caretakers of this gem, which was so dear to the owner’s heart.

Welcome to our home! Tommy & Jennifer
