Set on 160 acres just 3 1/2 miles northwest of downtown Silver City, this lodge, owned and operated by the Nature Conservancy, is ideal for outdoors enthusiasts, from birders to bicyclers. The 1920s inn offers large rooms with Old World charm, accented by maple floors, high ceilings, and with such details as authentic Navajo rugs and original art on the walls. Beds are very comfortable, and baths are medium-size with elegant tile work. Four rooms have private balconies. This is a nature lover's delight. On-site naturalist staff members are on hand to inform visitors about the flora and fauna of the area, and they also conduct guided trips. Breakfasts are hearty and healthy, with treats such as muffins and quiche. Dinner is served for guests nightly for an extra fee. It's a gourmet buffet-style affair that changes seasonally with such offerings as poached salmon and a Thai dinner. A guest computer provides Internet access. What's best here is that you can count on complete quiet.
