About Kathy Meehan

We live in Maine and hope to spend most of the year in Silver City when we retire.

Kathy Meehan purchased this house in 2005

Why Kathy Meehan chose New Mexico

We fell in love with this house on our second trip to Silver City. The location in the historic district is great, within walking distance to just about everything.

What makes this house unique

The house has a comfortable layout that feels spacious. We enjoy the privacy of the walled backyard, but we also like to sit on the covered front porch and and say hello to the neighbors and people just passing by. We've furnished and equipped the house so that we will enjoy vacationing there, and are happy to share it with others who appreciate Silver City.

Comfortable, convenient, and affordable

  • 5 of 5

Of the three long term VRBO homes we have rented in downtown Silver City, this home was the best. The location was quiet and central, just two blocks from the library. We enjoyed the renovated rooms---a bathroom with a walk-in shower, the modern and functional kitchen, and a comfortable sitting area with windows looking into the home's private back yard. The owner and property managers were responsive and helpful.

Hiking in the Gila wilderness, occasional hot springs soaks, crossing the border for lunch at the Pink Store in Palomas, and classes with the Western Institute of Lifelong Learning kept us busy. We enjoyed our stay so much we bought a home and are moving to Silver City!

Wonderful home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This is my second time renting the house. It met all of my needs in terms of convenience, amenities, and comfort. I love the overall character, furnishings, and charm of this well-maintained home. Management dealt with questions and issues promptly and professionally which added to a perfectly enjoyable stay. I readily recommend this property whole-heartedly.

Lovely House in Great Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for 9 weeks during a work assignment in Silver City. The house had everything I needed for my extended stay, with a grassy walled in backyard for my dog. The house has high quality furniture, a very comfortable bed, nice linens, large lovely bathrooms and a washer/dryer in the basement. Nice TV, decent internet, porch swing. It is up on a hill and the "family room" has a wall of windows with a nice view of the mountain and church steeple. It was great to be able to open up the doors to the sleeping porch at night to let the cool New Mexico air in. The house was very clean and well-maintained and is in the best neighborhood in town - lots of historic homes, a two block walk to the Saturday Farmers Mkt, a few blocks walk to the University, a few blocks to downtown, restaurants. I would definitely stay here next trip!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your very thoughtful comments and for taking the time to write. As you know we are here enjoying the house for a couple of weeks ourselves and have upgraded the internet service and installed a smart TV. We've also had insulation blown into the attic so it will be cozy when the weather gets cooler. You would be welcome back any time.

Very comfortable, handy to everything..

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was just great. This century-old home was been tastefully updated, and was quite comfortable in every way. The neighborhood is really interesting, and the historic downtown has lots of attractions,

shops, restaurants, etc. Everything worked perfectly, and the caretaker lady was close by and quite helpful.

Charming, comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

I had such a lovely stay at this rental. The furnishings were a cut above and so well-suited to the house. I had everything I needed at my fingertips. The property is In the most interesting neighborhood within walking distance to downtown, the library and college. The manager was very conscientious, on hand for any questions.
