The Casa Javelina is a hundred year old house moved to Magdalena in the 1920's from a silver mining ghost town 30 miles away. It has been renovated but retains a lot of character.
Whole house rental, 2 Br, 1 Bath, 900 sq ft, 6500 ft elevation in town, 11,000 ft mountains a few miles away. Partially Solar Powered! Horse Friendly- adjoining horse pen in back.

The space
This is a hundred year old Ghost Town House! Really! It was built at a Silver mine 30 miles from Magdalena and moved to its current location i the early 1900's. It has been renovated but remains vintage and eclectic.
2 BR, fully functional kitchen, full bath with tiled shower, about 900 sq ft.
Comfortable and clean, definitely more funky than fancy. Fenced yard. Family friendly. DVD Player and a cool movie collection. Grid Tie solar too!

Guest access
You will have the whole house, a fenced native plant landscaped yard, gas grill and sitting area outside in front, Aspen Grove and swing in back where you can watch the sunset make the mountains glow.

Other things to note
If you plan to cook, bring food with you. The nearest grocery stores are in Socorro (25 miles east), or if you are coming in on US 60 from the west, Springerville, AZ (125 miles west). There are a few basic local restaurants in town, and the Golden Spur bar (100 yards from the house) has pizzas and libations.

Location

Magdalena, New Mexico, United States

Magdalena is a town of about 1000 folks in the sunny mountains of Central New Mexico. We celebrate our Tri-cultural heritage in New Mexico. Lots of old Spanish families, Navajos from the nearby Alamo Navajo Res, Anglo ranchers from the country all around, and now artists and people who just prefer to live off the beaten track populate our town.
People wave as we pass each other driving.
Amazing area for hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding. The Very Large Array Radio Telescope complex is just a few miles down the road. The Bosque Del Apache Wildlife Refuge is 50 miles away. There are old mines and ghost towns to explore. The Cibola National Forest is all around Magdalena. Magdalena is also a gateway to the Gila National Forest and Wilderness. World class elk hunting, mule deer, 3 species of quail, wild turkey are all close for hunting guests. Cross country skiing and snowshoeing are possible some winters. The owner knows the country very well.
