I am a working artist of many mediums; ceramics, copper, painting, collage, et al and proprietor of Behr Art Gallery & Gifts.  Alongside this work, I  design spaces and events,  host workshops, markets, annual festivals, officiate weddings, and make my ever-morphing property available for others to share and enjoy.  To that, I've spent nearly every day designing, decorating, reconstructing, reconfiguring and reworking this historic property, farm and gardens.  The structures I've built and designed that are available for your retreat include the CABIN, the LOTUS, the  POND HUT and the TREE HOUSE. The Cabin  was  once a bunkhouse. The previous owners moved it (rolled it on logs) to its present location.  In doing so, the floor joists needed to be reattached and a foundation was constructed to stabilize the building. My brother and I cut, fitted, mudded, tied, nailed, plumbed, electrified  and created a marvelous space.   This is otherwise a working art studio,  organic farm and orchard, with ponds, shade trees, peace, quiet and some of the darkest skies for star gazing in the nation. My backstory: A Connecticut native, I moved to Silver City/Pinos Altos New Mexico in 1970 and then  to Glenwood in 1982. For twenty-two of those years, I lived on a ranch with a herd of horses and two donkeys, and my passion was endurance riding. After thousands of training hours, competitive miles, and sponsoring the Scorpion Sting Endurance Ride, I  gave it up for the life I now live on this land.

My long time friend and I spent a wonderful get-away weekend at the Cozy Cabin. It is a truly magical place for artists and art and animal lovers. Beth is a fantastic host and made us feel very welcome. It was an honor to share space and energy with her.

Beth was an extraordinary guest who just beams with light, wisdom and experience. I had a marvelous time exploring her property and artwork and the cabin itself was super warm, cozy and perfectly suited for my needs. The real pleasure was getting to spend time with a myriad of animals, which include three horses, two donkeys, chickens, two dogs, cats and a goose named Beatrix. Beth will release the horses and donkeys on the property and free horse therapy is a wonderful way to spend time! Beth is clearly a key part of her community, and people come in and out of her property. They are open minded, kind, polite and unique individuals who add to the experience of life. I highly, highly recommend this place for a lovely stay

A+ stay some new animal friends!
Loved our stay at the the Cozy Cabin. Beth was a great host and the stay was enhanced by the constant presence of super friendly animals (2 donkeys, 2 horses, 3 dogs, a cat, and a goose named Beatrice). The bed was awesome and wonderfully cozy. We used the hot tub every morning and night to warm up. The property has great views. And Beatrice hung out with us whenever we posted up under the trees to read. We'll definitely be back when we're looking for another break from Tucson.

This was such an amazing and unique experience. The effort and minor nuances of the place are unmatched. Beth was a great host, showed us all around the property and gave background and stories of how the place came to be. Truly can not get another experience like this! 10/10 would definitely recommend.

Simply Beautiful
We loved everything about the cabin and the property and Beth was an amazing host. The hot tub was the perfect ending to a day of hiking and exploring and the property has a nice big open area to view the night sky. We had fun visiting with all the animals who share the property and our host was very gracious and accommodating. We are excited about ongoing projects that she is currently working on and look forward to our next stay.

Relaxation, Adventure, and Wonder
Perfect getaway if your looking to get heavy dose of nature. The views are hard to beat. Gila National Forest literally right in back yard. The skies are just as dark as they are at Cosmic Campground. But here you can observe from private hot tub or the observatory. The cabin is very comfortable. Great sleep. Great views! Great vibes! Great host! Beth is an artist and you see that in every detail of her home. She was very welcoming and made sure we were taken care of. Her animals brought even more charm to our stay. She provided farm fresh eggs from her chickens. Picked a white pomegranate from a pomegranate tree! Your literally on a well maintained farm in the middle of nowhere but that was a perk for us. We loved our visit here. Bonus...It's close to Catwalk Trail and Cosmic Campgrounds.

I was all I hoped for and then more! Beth met us on arrival, orientated us to the property and surrounding area. Beautiful site, interesting animals to visit, every direction you looked was interesting with art collections. She thought of everything to make us comfortable. I will visit again!

had a great baby moon at the beautiful and very comfortable Lotus tent! Beth and her brother were very welcoming, the space is beautifully laid out with lots of different art and landscaping, the tent is very comfortable, with excellent bed and the perfect temp at night and sweet little additions like a coffee maker. LOTS of outdoor things to do in the area, even for us who weren't able to walk very much.

A slice of paradise
What a beautiful space. Beth is a fantastic host. She’s extremely creative and warm and that is felt throughout the entire space! She made us feel right at home, while still giving us complete privacy. She’s a talented artist! Go on the tour to get a glimpse of that talent! She went above and beyond to make our weekend enjoyable. Do yourself a favor and book now. I left feeling inspired and I’m looking forward to visiting again soon. The area hikes are to die for too!

One of a kind, wonderful.
Almost don’t know where to start. The experience here was full. Beth has created a truly inspiring, invigorating and unique home for herself which she has so graciously opened up for others to enjoy. The touches and detail go above and beyond expectations and even imagination. Which in my honest opinion is nothing short of magical. Go see for yourself. Chat with Beth, about any and everything, play with one of her absolutely lovely and friendly animals. Not to chose favorites but Ava the dog was truly a highlight of the stay. See what it feels like to live in one of the most beautiful parts of the country for a night, soak in the hot tub and absorb all of intricacies of the space around you... I don’t think you’ll regret it.

What a special place! Beth was so kind and lovely. Around every corner and behind every door there was something artfully thoughtful, funky, or both. The cabin was cozy, unique, and full of life--which includes many house plants. The host has made a wonderful indoor-outdoor experience with warmth and vibrancy.

Magical stay
I can't say enough about Beth's place. It's absolutely magical. She was a considerate host, and we loved the outdoor shower, hot tub, and whimsical style. Her property is lovely and we thoroughly enjoyed exploring. We stayed there to check out the Gila National Forest, but I would love to go back just to hang out at Beth's! Great for close couples. There's a toilet behind a partition in the room itself, along with a sink and vanity area. The shower is outdoors around the curtain by the hot tub. Beth also set up a great outdoor kitchen area, which was well-appointed, easy to use, and frankly just delightful. I didn't have reception there (AT&T) but there was wifi.

Beth, and Zsa Zsa her dog were incredible hosts. Helpful directions to the home upfront and a greeting as we entered the property. We were given a tour of our private spaces as well as the rest of the property and we immediately felt at home. What a beautiful place, from the gardens and ponds to the star filled sky above while enjoying the hot tub. Cozy and clean, warm and inviting. We had an exceptional experience and plan to visit again some day.

Pond House in Glenwood NM is an amazing place. Beth, owner, is an artist and has two galleries. My niece and I fixed dinner in the outdoor kitchen then drank wine around the campfire (got to leave our brand on the log stumps) then relaxed in the hot tub. It is worth the trip just to meet her animals (dog, horses, parrots, cats, chickens).

This spot is the perfect location tucked away in the Gila National Forest. Beth is one of the most welcoming hosts. When I arrived she greeted me and welcomed me immediately into her home to tell me about the property and show me her beautiful home. She offered me a warm shower and turned on the heating blanket in my sleeping accommodations for me (yes - it comes with a heating blanket!) I was skeptical that sleeping in a yurt in the middle of November would be warm, but with the heating blanket, it was the perfect temperature all evening! Beth really thinks of everything. She provides coffee and snacks when you wake up in the morning that are set out right in your yurt or cabin. This allows you to wake up on your own schedule and start your day whenever you would like. As I was getting prepared to leave, she offered to show me the gallery. DO NOT LEAVE without seeing the gallery! It is stunning. She has the her work as well as work of local artists on display. This place really is a hidden gem! I would have loved to stay there longer and would recommend everyone stay there if they are passing through the forest!

Beth is as cool as they come. This is a special place. I wish we could have stayed longer. Get ready to wake up to deer, horses, chickens, and humming birds sharing the yard. Good vibes all around.

The Pond House New Mexico
For those of us who crave the night sky, the symphony of trickling water and the scent of early morning dew before coffee, The Pond House will be the most glorious of shelters. Intentionally crafted to create a very glamping experience, The Pond House will remind you of a hobbit house wrapped with flowering vines. It is obvious that Beth has put much care into creating this space - not only to make it comfortable, but also to help it mold into the rest of her wanderland. There is healthy, lush flora and fauna everywhere on this property and the host is awesome.

Absolutely blown away! This handcrafted oasis beat all my expectations. Beth was such a thoughtful, caring, creative host with great passion for all that she does. The artistry that spans every detail of her property is a testament to her creative spirit and drive. Some of the stuff she’s made is seriously amazing. Beth has thought through every detail and built her sustainable slice of paradise with guests in mind. I felt so at home. Lovers of art, animals, and the great outdoors will surely find some comfort here.
