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 Silver City

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.

Great, comfortable house in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

This was our second satisfied stay at this house in Silver City's historic downtown neighborhood. The location is perfect for visitors to the city: within walking distance to shops, galleries, restaurants, parks, the university, the library and many walking/hiking trails. The house itself is a comfortably remodeled older house with lots of character, plus modern conveniences and very well maintained. For us the enclosed back yard was a real plus for our small dog, too. The owner has been excellent to work with: fair, responsive and prompt with any concerns or questions we had. All in all, it's a great home base for visiting the Silver City area.

Great Silver City Neighborhood, Comfortable House

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed our three months in this house; so much so we have reserved it again for next year! The older, renovated home is charming and comfortable with both vintage and modern features, and the location is perfect: two blocks from the library and walking distance to the historic downtown, the college and the Boston Hill hiking trails. The enclosed back yard was perfect for our small dog, too. The owner and her local property manager were wonderful to work with; responsive and helpful. All in all, this house was a great place to spend our winter months.

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.
