The Bear Creek Motel & Cabins are parked among the pine trees of the Gila National Forest in Pinos Altos New Mexico.
Make no mistake, these are not luxury digs, but they are perfectly adequate rooms. The wood cabins are listed as "Pet Friendly and are equiped with Wi-Fi, although it was a very weak signal while we were there. Cell phone service is equally spotty, but you're on vacation, so who cares!
Our cabin was 2-story, with beds up stairs and down. Fireplace, Satelite TV, stove, small fridge, and minimal cookware, dishes, & glassware were included, all for about $155 per night once you included all the usual taxes. The famous Buckhorn Saloon was less than half a mile away, and Silver City, home of Billy the Kid, as only about 8 miles down the road. If you don't want to use the kitchinette, Silver City has all the usual fast food spots.
The setting for these cabins, 6,000 feet up n the Gila forest is what makes them so special. Although it was mid August, we were never hot, and bird watching from our very nice porch was comfortable throughout the day. The area abounds with scenic drives and many bird watching opportunities. The area around the cabins was loaded with Acorn Woodpeckers, Mexican Jays, Hummingbirds, Nuthatches, and a lot of others we couldn't identify. The owners were very friendly, and we look forward to returning next summer to escape the Central Texas heat..
