Sapillo Creek Escape and The Casita @ Sapillo Creek Escape are one of a kind in the Gila Wilderness.

These two houses are custom designed and made by the creator of Bear Creek Motel and Lodge in Pinos Altos. Everything from the saltillo tiles to the wood latilla ceilings are custom done and exquisitely hand-laid.

Over 3000 sq feet in the hoe & over 320 sq feet in The Casita are at your disposal. This place is made you and your family and friends to enjoy the Gila Wilderness!

The space
UPDATE 10/21/2020:

Sapillo Creek Escape and the Casita are fully private with no shared spaces!

The property can sleep 9 in proper mattresses and beds and up to 12 if you use the couch and a queen sized air mattress that we have in the home!

Sapillo Creek Escape is a one of a kind space hosting four bedrooms. Three bedrooms have adjoining decks that show off the majestic views of the Mogollon Mountains at 6,600 feet elevation. There are 3 full bathrooms, 4 kiva fireplaces in the home for use.

The Casita @ Sapillo Creek Escape is an adobe cabin styled as a studio apartment with a queen bed and privacy. It sits adjacent to the home and is within 75 feet away from the front door of Sapillo Creek Escape. There is a camping toilet and a solar-powered, portable shower and two privacy tents in the back of the casita if the guests choose to use those instead of coming into the home to use the bathrooms. There is also potable well water that pumps right into the front of the casita that can be used as well.

We love animals so we allow pets so long as they are socialized and have their recent vaccinations. Please let us know if you plan on bringing your pets.

We also welcome horses in our front pasture. We just had three girls bring out five horses and they did a lot of riding and it was perfect! We do not have shelter for the horses but there is a water pump in the pasture so if you want to bring the horses and have all the rest of their needs covered, we welcome guests to bring a few horses to ride in the Gila Wilderness.

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 this The Casita and 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 the 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!
