Surrounded by the Mogollon Mountains, this glamping casita provides you modern amenities such as a queen bed, stove top, mini fridge, crock pot, dresser, wardrobe and a table and four chairs. There is covered parking for your car right next to the casita and we have a pop up tent that can be used. The tent can be used for outdoor showers as we have a 5 gallon solar heated shower. We have an outhouse about 40 feet from the casita and you can find the lit-path at night to direct you to it. After going #2 in the outhouse, please pour one scoop of lime down the hole to help decomposition and prevent odors and bugs.
The bed sleeps two comfortably. If you bring cots, you can host two more people or kids at the casita. It will be tight but it can work!
There is potable water from our well that is accessible right outside the casita.
There is a space heater inside the casita to keep you warm during the colder season.
Once you step out, you will smell Pinon Pine and be footsteps away from Sapillo Creek, a hike or short drive (4 min) to Lake Roberts, and the Gila National Forest.

Worth the drive to the destination!
We were in search of an isolated and refreshing location for a weekend getaway- and we got just what we were hoping for! Jennifer was an amazing and helpful host, and this was a wonderful spot to be with our horses and enjoy the beautiful Gila!
The casita was lovely. It is ideally located to do hiking in Gila, and so nice to be able to go somewhere without cell coverage or wifi. There is space on the property to take in the sunset and stargaze. I had a wonderful time here. Thank you Jennifer!
Very cute spot with lots of room! Stayed here two nights in February ended up being a very cozy stay and had lots of basic items someone might need and ended up working out great for our trip! The only thing I want to give a heads up about is the bathroom. I'm only 5'8" and could not fit comfortably in the bathroom and it's also kinda low to the ground. Was a rather awkward experience using.
Beautiful area all around fabulous
Very comfortable, clean, great bed and amenities. But no phone service in the whole area or wi-fi or radio. I did a lot of reading. In spite of all the rain and mud I would stay there again but maybe at a different time. Thanks HipCamp for another great place to visit
The casita is cute and as advertised. My husband and I and two kids (age 1 and 4) stayed for two nights. The bed was comfortable. We brought a sleeping bag and pack n play for the kids. It was nice and cozy, but not too cramped. We went to the gila cliff dwellings (about 20 miles away) one day and silver city the next (about an hour). The check in directions were easy. The area is pretty and quiet. Overall we had a nice stay.
The location is great. Very quiet and peaceful and plenty of trees to keep you cool.
I would those who are not used to roughing it with a portable toilet and no running water to think twice. If you truly like camping and don’t miss the nice things then this is 100% for you
The drive up is a treat in itself!
I really loved the place but my wife didn’t as much as I did.
