    About Us


    If you are looking for a quiet and peaceful stay in the beautiful high desert terrain of Southwestern New Mexico, the Stress-Free Zone of Casitas de Gila Guesthouses and Nature Preserve is for you! Set on 265 acres overlooking Bear Creek and the Gila Wilderness, about a half-hour from Silver City, these 5 casitas (Spanish for “little houses”) offer the epitome of Southwestern style. The guesthouses are beautifully decorated with Mexican furniture and rugs. Each has a full kitchen, a living room with kiva fireplace (seasonal), a small porch with a chimenea, and a bbq grill. On hand is an outdoor hot tub with a view of the creek, canyon, and sky. There’s an adobe art gallery featuring oil paintings and handcrafted turquoise jewelry by the owners, as well as work by other area artists. Each Casita has a library of books on the area. There's a spotting scope in each Casita for viewing wildlife or the night sky. Learn about the environment here when you walk our self-guided nature trail. No matter what your hiking ability, one of our 11 trails (covering over 6 miles) will be perfect for you. Pan for gold in Bear Creek. Or just spend the afternoon in the hammock under the cottonwood trees. Casitas de Gila Guesthouses is a unique destination, loving tended by its owners, Michael and Becky O'Connor, since 1999. We are delighted to share our knowledge of the area with you; while you are at the Casitas, you can consider us your personal Concierge! We welcome you to stay with us for one night or many and enjoy a peace and tranquility that is very hard to find anywhere today.
