Sapillo Creek Escape is a one of a kind gem in the Gila Wilderness.

It is a custom designed home made by the creator of Bear Creek Motel and Lodge in Piños Altos, John Claussen. Everything from the saltillo tiles to the wood latilla ceilings were exquisitely hand-laid.

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.

Fishing, birding, biking, hiking, horseback riding - adventure awaits!

The space
UPDATED 10/21/2020:

SAPILLO CREEK ESCAPE is entirely private with four bedrooms and three full baths! Sleeps 7 easy in two queen beds, one full and one single. Also available is a queen sized air mattress and a couch which can get the accommodations up to 10!

This is one of a kind space hosting four full bedrooms, three with adjoining decks that show off majestic views of the Mogollon Mountains at 6,600 feet elevation. There are three full bathrooms and 4 kiva fireplaces!

Pets are allowed so long as they are socialized and have their recent vaccinations. Please let us know if you are planning on bringing them.

We also have space for horses - we have a pasture in the front of our property before the inclined driveway to the house. We recently had three girls and five horses out riding and it was perfect!

So if you would like to bring out a couple of horses, and put them in our pasture you're welcome to in order to explore the Gila on horseback! We do not have any shelter for them, just the pasture and some potable water through a water pump, but if you bring the rest, we would love to have you guys up with your horses.

The entire house was built by hand and it took nearly 7 years to complete. Everything is custom and I can promise you that you will never stay in a place like this!

A great location to retreat to and escape from the everyday! We want you to share Sapillo Creek Escape with your family, friends, biking crew, birding group, hiking tribe, fishing buds, and your hunting pals!

On the property itself, we recently marked off three areas which are perfect for campsites. If the weather is nice and you want to bring a tent, you are more than welcome to spend some nights under the stars at the campsites on property. Let us know if you are interested and we can show you how to get to them.

I grew up in the DC metro area and I love travel (Bilbao, Spain is my favorite destination), reading, writing, cooking and welcoming fellow travelers to share my humble home.

I've been raised in the DC metro area and I have worked and played in Washington DC over the last 20 years so I can definitely provide suggestions for restaurants and activities on and off the beaten path.

I love animals and have a few of my own and would love to meet yours when you stay in my humble abode that provides the quaintness and simplicity located outside the big city but with all of the necessary amenities you need, when you travel to my home away from home.

My style is simple and comfortable and well, lived-in. Like a favorite pair of jeans. That's how I like to travel and host. I look forward to meeting you!
