Casita on Sapillo Creek Escape

· Lake Roberts, Grant, New Mexico
20 acres hosted by Jennifer T.
1 lodging site · 3 tent sites
Sapillo 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.  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.  The Casita at Sapillo Creek Escape sits on 20 acres, so camping is welcome.  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).  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

Glamping Casita in the Gila
Nice casita, but some problems
Cozy casita with plenty of space and comfy bed. Some folks may find the tiny pit toilet privy to be challenging. And be sure to double-check that you’ve received the correct code to unlock the key box. I was given the wrong code, and since there is no wireless service of any kind at the site, I had to drive back 25 minutes towards Silver City just so I could reach the host and get the correct code.

Glamping Casita in the Gila
The Glamping Casita is exactly as described and pictured. The directions to the property were perfect and very much needed as Google maps truly could not have gotten me there. Jennifer was incredibly helpful and the hiking recs (provided on a very helpful printed document when I got there) were awesome. The cooking equipment was also perfect and necessary as this is a remote spot. I had a wonderful time and got tons of writing, reading, thinking, and resting done...exactly as I'd hoped!

Ms. Jennifer was up the drive and was gracious enough to guide us in :) She is super nice and accomadating. She made us feel welcomed and not isolated - even though we were the only ones. The host also named Ms. Jennifer was super nice and very attentive! The site was enjoyable as well as the sound of the running creek:)

Glamping Casita in the Gila
The Casita was a great place to stay for a few nights! Jennifer is extremely helpful, and is on thr property if you need anything. The Casita is thoughtfully decorated and stocked with everything you need. She had the heater going for me when I got there so it was comfortable. The bed was very comfortable as well. Beautiful property with plenty to see. Drove around and did some hikes and site seeing near by. I did have some service out there. Portapotty was clean, a little out of my comfort zone, but what was advertiser. Pet friendly, my pup loved the property and Jennifer was a great host for him too! She warned me to watch for javelinas, as they have been known to attack dogs.
